Actress Viola Davis, who won an Emmy last year for her leading role on “How to Get Away With Murder,” has bought a home in Toluca Lake, Calif., for $5.7 million.

Completed last year, the European-inspired two-story sits behind fences on nearly half an acre of grounds. A colorful stacked-stone walkway leads past a fountain feature and up to a covered front porch.

Inside, layers of gray set the tone for the roughly 7,500 square feet of living space. In the chef’s kitchen, stone countertops and modern fixtures create visual contrast against light-gray cabinetry. Similarly dressed formal rooms continue the sophisticated vibe.

Other features of note include a custom theater with a 4K projector, an office/library and a wet bar. A 600-bottle wine cellar sits behind a glass door in the formal dining room.

The master suite includes a fireplace, a separate sitting room and a balcony for a total of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

French doors off the main floor open to a patio containing a built-in barbecue and outdoor living room. A saltwater swimming pool, a fire pit, lawns and hedges fill out the backyard setting.

Davis, 51, has starred as Annalise Keating on “How to Get Away With Murder” since 2014. Her other television credits include “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “United States of Tara.” More recently she appeared in the summer blockbuster “Suicide Squad.”
