Noted television producer and writer Shonda Rhimes has bought a home in the historic Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles for about $4.6 million.

Built in 1924 and renovated, the English Country-style home sits on about half an acre with a swimming pool, lawns and a pool/guest house.

The stone-faced two-story has 4,895 square feet of living space that includes a marble-lined foyer, a dining room with coffered ceilings, an eat-in kitchen, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. There are fireplaces in the living room, library and master bedroom.

Outdoors, lawns and hedges surround the pool area. A pair of white trellises create additional living space near the pool house.

Rhimes, 47, is known as the architect behind such hit television shows as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice” and “Scandal.” More recently she produced the series “How to Get Away with Murder” and “The Catch.”
