House of the Day: David Hyde Pierce's Spanish Palace

It's a home that even the obsessively picky Dr. Niles Crane would love.

Which is a shame, because it appears that his off-screen self, the Emmy Award-winning actor David Hyde Pierce, is over it.

AOL Real Estate has learned that Pierce has just listed his exquisite, Spanish Colonial-style mansion in Los Angeles for $7.5 million. Granted, Pierce has owned the house for nine years (a lifetime in the fickle world of Hollywood real estate), but if that house were ours, we'd never want to leave.

With 1920s-Spanish features like a grand rotunda entrance, a stunning baronial fireplace, and a gorgeous spiral staircase rising to a stained glass ceiling, the home is anything but your typical California McMansion. The home is decked out in warm, earthy tones and each room is beautifully illuminated by chandeliers or other artful fixtures.

The 8,184-square-foot home also features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a huge kitchen, a wine vault, a home theater and a superb library-study. (Check out those gorgeous, floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelves!)

Richard Cassese and Raphael Barragan of Engel & Volkers Los Angeles have the listing.
