It's always interesting getting an inside peek at one's home and interior design tastes through listing photos. In fact, the listing photos of Jesse Alexander, co-executive producer of
Heroes, is truly no exception. Alexander, who just listed his Sherman Oaks pad for $2.1 million, certainly has some far out tastes, which include a papier-mâché wart hog head, polka-dotted lamp shades, and definitely no lack of zebra stripes or patterned rugs. View the listing.

Alexander's 1964 pad looks like quite a run-of-the-mill Cape Code style estate from the outside. The listing even denotes that its warm exterior aesthetic makes it feel like a Hamptons beach house.

The family room includes one of many patterned rugs in the spread, a large brown leather sofa, and a shiny white laminate and stainless steel coffee table. The zebra-striped chair and honeycomb-patterned curtains fulfill the zany-factor in the room.
Head on over to the living room where one can watch movies when not reading from the many books lined up on the floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves.
The screen even retracts, revealing the double doors that lead out to the private balcony.
While many homes boast animal trophy heads hanging above the mantel or fireplace, how many of these trophy heads are papier-mache like this one?

The kitchen space features an all-white breakfast banquette with a white leather bench seat.
The producer's formal dining room features the same black and white theme as in the kitchen. This room includes a very large farmhouse dining table, and five funky polka-dotted lamp shades, extended from the ceiling by what looks like decorative metal pipes.
The 4,399-square-foot house even has a huge room dedicated to games and pinball machines.
Alexander has not only produced hit shows like <I>Heroes</i>, <I>Lost</i>, and <I>Alias</i>, but he's also helped develop various video games, which certainly explains why his house boasts an entire wall lined with video game consoles and pinball machines.
Apple-user Alexander snatched up this home in late August 2002 for $1.125 million.
There are five bedrooms in the crib. The kids rooms are just as colorful and chock full of patterns and quirky designs as the rest of the house.

The home features five bathrooms.
The kid-friendly abode is situated on .43 acres in Sherman Oaks, CA. There's a large grassy play yard, perfect for little ones to get the wiggles out.
While the kiddos play around, the adult-set can sit back and relax in the outdoor gardens and patios that surround the <I>Better Homes and Gardens Magazine</i> featured home.

The outdoor space comes complete with a lagoon-style pool and spa that even has a waterfall. Numerous lounging patios and cabana areas surround the kid-safe swimming pool.
