As “The Walking Dead” comes to a close, its star Norman Reedus intends to wrap his time in the Hollywood castle he shares with the glamorous actress Diane Kruger.
The A-list couple recently put their regal mansion on the market for $9.25 million.
The classic Hollywood residence was built around 1926, and more recently became known as the Novogratz Castle, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling renovation performed on it by the celebrity designers Robert and Courtney Novogratz nearly a decade ago.
It went on the market last spring for $9.4 million, and Reedus and Kruger bought the distinctive dwelling from the video game mogul Jeff Strain last year for $8.5 million.
The dazzling duo have been stalwart stewards of the classic 7,732-square-foot mansion, and of the modern amenities that make the stylish home so livable today.
The castle’s more traditional features include its four-story Tudor architecture, vaulted cathedral ceilings, crown moldings, casement windows, and stout plaster walls with arched windows and doorways.
Modern amenities include a spacious Boffi kitchen with a Carrara marble island, Schotten & Hansen hardwood floors, and a zebra-festooned butler’s pantry.
For creative types, there’s also a state-of-the-art media room and music studio.
Of the seven exquisitely updated bathrooms and four bedrooms, one is currently configured as a sweet nursery, complete with childproof fireplace.
Kruger, a former top model, could accommodate her passion for fashion in the spacious closet that is part of the luxe primary suite. The suite also features French doors opening to a balcony, a modern fireplace, and a large bathroom with a unique glass shower and designer tile.

Reedus was also a fashion model, but his current tastes rev toward motorcycles—as demonstrated in his adventure reality show “Ride With Norman Reedus.” The four-car garage and a brick motor court leading into it appear to be ideally suited to his gearhead tastes.
The uniquely landscaped grounds of the half-acre estate include a number of terraces and patios, one with a large dining area and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven.
In addition, the grounds include a grass-edged saltwater pool and spa, a fenced basketball court, and various gardens with century-old trees and abundant foliage.
“This magical home seamlessly blends period details with modern amenities and offers absolute privacy, with panoramic views overlooking the city. It’s unlike anything else you’ve seen,” says Jon Grauman of The Agency, who has the listing along with his colleagues from The Agency Wolf Amer and Andrew Botto.
Reedus, 52, will play “Walking Dead” fan favorite Daryl Dixon for the last time in Season 11, the final season of the series, which is set to air later this year. He’ll then transition into a spin-off featuring Daryl and Carol (played by Melissa McBride).
Meanwhile, his motorcycle touring show, “Ride With Norman Reedus,” is awaiting a Season 6 renewal. In addition, his voice has been heard in animated series like “Robot Chicken” and in hit video games.
Kruger, 44, is best known for playing Helen in “Troy,” and starring in the “National Treasure” films, as well as in Quentin Tarantino‘s “Inglourious Basterds.” Most recently, she starred in the FX crime drama series “The Bridge.”
The two actors have been together since 2016, after they met co-starring in the film “Sky.” They purchased a New York City townhouse together in 2018.
