Thom Beers, the creator and executive producer of the popular Discovery Channel show Deadliest Catch, has decided to sell his stunning home in Sherman Oaks for a whopping $8.495 million. This makes it the most expensive property currently on the market in the San Fernando Valley community of Los Angeles.

Built in 2014, this remarkable 5,649-square-foot residence is not just for sale but also available for lease at $30,000 per month. The listing describes it as a “Zen retreat” and a “labor of love and inspiration.” Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, the house offers five bedrooms and 6.5 baths.

The expansive grounds, covering nearly an acre, feature beautiful gardens with mature trees, a pergola, a pool and hot tub, a stream, waterfalls, fountains, and a serene Koi pond nestled beneath the house. The property also includes a guest wing with its own kitchen, a detached guest house, and a gym/yoga studio.

What sets this home apart is its unique ambiance. According to Craig Knizek, the listing agent from The Agency, every section of the house provides a different and special experience. He says, “One of my favorite aspects is how many unique feels the different sections of the house offer.

The privacy of the owner’s suite, the exceptional entertainment space by the pool and BBQ, the creativity you feel in the guest house, the privacy and homey comforts the separate apartment gives.” Knizek also highlights the property’s enchanting paths that wind beneath magnificent oak and liquidambar trees along the meandering stream.

Thom Beers, who was previously the CEO of FremantleMedia North America, is known for producing acclaimed television shows such as Bering Sea GoldStorage WarsIce Road TruckersAx MenBlack Gold, and Monster Garage.
