Best known for his roles as boxer Donnie Creed in Creed and Erik Killmonger in Black Panther, former Fruitvale Station actor Michael B. Jordan has taken Hollywood by storm in the past few years.
His acting chops landed him a spot on The New York Times’ list of the 25 greatest actors of the 21st century. He was also named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2020, a year that also landed him the coveted title of People’s Sexiest Man Alive.
The Creed III director and star is also a sartorial icon of sorts, crafting a distinct aesthetic for himself that flawlessly balances flash-in-the-pan trends with proven classics. He pairs his carefully picked outfits with some equally fly rides, including a sleek blue Ferrari that Jordan crashed into a parked car on Sunset Boulevard.
And his unique style extends to the showstopper that he calls home in Encino, Los Angeles — and we’re here to give you a tour of his spectacular abode.
The Creed actor/director lives in a 12,300-square-foot house in Encino — a popular Los Angeles suburb — that he bought in May 2022 for $12.5 million.
And we know that for a fact, as Michael B. Jordan tried to part ways with his Encino mansion less than 8 months after buying it, listing the property for $12.995 million with Bryan Castaneda and Andrew Mortaza of The Agency.
Jordan stood to make a pretty penny from the sale.
If his Encino house had sold for full ask ($12,995,000), the actor would have banked close to half a million — though it’s worth noting that he also invested in upgrading the property during his short-lived ownership.
But no buyer emerged, and the Black Panther star likely decided he wasn’t going to sell for less than the house is worth, so he quietly took it off the market a few months later, deciding to keep the lovely residence for himself.

Sitting on a half-acre lot in the pricey Royal Estates neighborhood in Encino, Los Angeles, the property checks every box you can think of: premium location, luxurious finishes, and a very modern-yet-warm design.
Newly-built in 2021, Jordan was the house’s first (and only) resident.
