Actor Allen Leech, who is perhaps best known for his role in “Downton Abbey,” has just purchased a Studio City home for $1.175 million.

The 1,200-square-foot home sits on over half an acre of hillside property and is quietly tucked behind mature trees. Seclusion is made possible thanks to the fact that the home can only be accessed via a long driveway. There is also a detached 2-car garage for ample parking.

The 1956-built, 2-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom home is surrounded with mature trees and lush landscaping which envelope every inch of the single-story abode.

Notable traits of the home include wide-plank oak flooring and vaulted ceilings throughout, giving the space a much more open, spacious, and airy feel.

Despite its modest size as per Hollywood standards, every square foot of the space has been utilized to its maximum potential. The galley kitchen has been lovingly updated with white cabinets, Carrara marble counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and French doors that lead to the outside just off the eating area. There’s also a quaint dining nook that’s perfect for intimate dinners.

The living room is large and bright, and is decked out with all-white walls and a restored white brick fireplace. The bright master bedroom oozes natural light thanks to its large corner window, and the ensuite bathroom comes equipped with a marble-topped vanity and glass-enclosed shower stall. The second bedroom has its own set of French doors for direct outdoor access.

Glorious canyon and mountain views can be enjoyed thanks to the home’s plentiful extra-large windows and French doors.

No word on where the 35-year-old Irish-born actor is headed to next, but based on his current gig in the Canadian television series “Bellevue,” it’s possible he may be headed north of the border.
