Everyone’s favorite stony, jazz-loving small screen gumshoe is back! Less than a year after “Bosch” ended its seven-season run on Amazon Prime, the show’s highly anticipated spin-off, aptly titled “Bosch: Legacy,” the streamer’s ad-supported sister platform, Freevee (formerly known as IMDb TV) reached ).
A year and a half after the events of the series finale of the original and based on bestselling author Michael Connelly’s 2016 novel “The Wrong Side of Goodbye,” “Legacy” sees the titular character Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch (Titus Welliver) act in his badge to act as private detective, with his daughter, Maddie (Madison Lintz), following in law enforcement’s footsteps by joining the ranks of the LAPD Hollywood Division. And dare I say it is even better than its predecessor!
The grim, gripping, and intense storyline of the first season revolves around Bosch and the associate-turned-collaborator, Honey Chandler (Mimi Rogers), teaming up to take down the evil hedge fund manager Carl Rogers (originally played by Max E. Williams, the role became).
recast with Michael Rose for the spin-off) after he skates on a hit-and-run charge thanks to a hung jury. The fact that episodes are released piecemeal only makes “Legacy” more captivating.
However, there is bad news when it comes to “Bosch”‘s best-known location. The cantilevered path Harry called home in the original series gets a red label after an earthquake in episode one, forcing the detective to temporarily move to his office. While the course of events is heartbreaking, it is necessary for the story. Welliver explained to TVLine: “I think the point is to ‘separate Harry from his place’ and disorient him. But it was a big part of a discussion, and it’s designed that way.
So yeah, the fans should kind of look at it, observe it and worry and then, eventually, think that, as with all things we do, we paint Harry in a corner and then give him a brush to paint on his way to paint it out.”
In the meantime, as Bosch decides whether or not to make the expensive repairs necessary to save his beloved home or to carve and sell bait, the public may instead have their eye on another dazzling piece. real estate, Rogers’s contemporary rectory, those figures front and center of the storyline.
In a rather humorous twist, the architectural stunner can be found a literal stone’s throw from Harry’s home at 1 Bode Dr. in the Hollywood Hills. Some of the best views of Harry’s house can even be seen from the base of the property’s driveway! So Bosch certainly didn’t have to go far to keep an eye on Rogers! (Please note that this is a private residence. Do not enter or disturb the residents or the property in any way.)
Perched atop a private bluff overlooking virtually all of Los Angeles, the estate is the brainchild of famed architect Michael Mueller, who spent more than eight years on the project (permits alone took two years to obtain!) before it was finally completed in 2019. He told Forbes: “In 2003 I was driving around looking for properties in the hills and I came across this little sign at the bottom of the hill that reads ‘For sale by owner’.
So I rang the buzzer “Somebody came down the hill. Mind you, there was no house here; it was just all mountain. And guess who it was? It was Leslie Nielsen!” The “Naked Gun” actor, who has owned the lot since 1951, was apparently extremely protective of it, agreeing to sell to Mueller only after interviewing him four times and learning about his ambitious architectural plans, requiring a “hilltop cutout to create the most impressive views in Los Angeles, over the skyline and mountains to the ocean.”
With five bedrooms (all ensuite with walk-in closets) and eight bathrooms spread over a whopping 10,000 square feet, the completed home was well worth the wait! And there’s good news for ‘Bosch’ fans with deep pockets, as the pad is currently up for grabs! Represented by Jonathan Nash of Hilton & Hyland, the property is listed for $19.99 million.
Set on a sprawling 0.99 acre property at the end of a long gated driveway, the residence is a wonderland of views and indoor and outdoor space, with walls of glass forming almost the entire back. Mueller told Forbes, “This property had to be all about glass, all about floating. The big key design is that the inside becomes the outside, especially in California where you can leave the doors open.”
Inside, there are lavish living spaces, all of which have a Hollywood Regency flair. A showcase of an entertainer, common areas include a media room, office, library, fitness studio, formal dining room with a wine wall, kitchen equipped with dual islands and high-end appliances, and three separate living rooms, one with a towering double-sided fireplace. shrouded in granite.
Jetliner views stretching from downtown LA to the Santa Monica Mountains greet residents at almost every turn. As Mueller told Forbes, “I’d say living in this house is like living in the air in a modern world where you’re surrounded by all the beauty Los Angeles has to offer.”
The primary bedroom is a true retreat, completed by a fireplace made of black sheet stone, a custom chandelier designed by Mueller, and a two-story dressing room with hand-scraped oak floors.
But it’s the ensuite bath that really takes your breath away! With a central free-standing soaking tub, custom vanities, and twin showers fitted with Italian blue quartz, the enclave resembles a tony spa or exclusive hotel rather than a private residence. You certainly don’t need Calgon to take you into such a space!
Luxurious through and through, it’s easy to see why the property was chosen to portray the home of billionaire Carl Rogers.
