The 4,026 square feet home – including 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms – sits on a secluded street lined with celebrity neighbors such as Kirstie Alley and Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

The stunning residence was designed by El Capitan Theater architect Stiles O. Clements in the early 1920s.

It is known in certain architecture circles as Seyler House after its original owner, an insurance executive.

The 1.5 acre spread has changed hands among a bevy of high-profile Hollywood hitters like Tim Curry, Noah Wylie, Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson and director Robert Luketic.

In 2011 the property was acquired for $6.275 million by Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson who sold it to Parsons in early 2014 for $6.375 million.

The revival stars Andrew Rannells, Brian Hutchison, Charlie Carver, Matt Bomer, Michael Benjamin Washington, Robin De Jesus, Tuc Watkins and Zachary Quinto.

And Parsons spoke about how fifty years later, the show is still relevant.

‘It was just hard to say no to,’ Parsons told ET about joining the revival, in which he plays Michael, the host of the party and instigator of the evening’s game.

‘It’s very meaningful to be able to play these parts as out gay actors 50 years later, when so many of these men not only hid their sexuality but died of AIDS eventually, a disease that undoubtedly was allowed to get as bad as it did in part due to homophobia, a secretiveness and no action being taken.’

Parsons told his agent he would only commit to the Broadway production if Quinto would be cast in it as well.

‘If Zach’s not going to be involved, I feel real iffy about this because I just didn’t know who else could do it to the level he does it. He’s that good,’ Parsons explained.
