Zach Woods owns a house in Los Angeles. The 2,000-square-foot house, which was built in 1946 and restored in the 1960s and 2017,  has three bedrooms and 2.25 full bathrooms (one full, one three-quarter bath, and one powder room) on a nearly 6,000-square-foot lot. It is characterized as “French provincial” in style in listing materials.  From the street, the single-story structure is hidden by a fence and a dense canopy of greenery. A gated entrance leads up steps past a decomposed granite patio and another concrete patio and is surrounded by wooden lattice. The red-tile-roofed villa’s interior features milky white walls, towering ceilings, and honey-hued hardwood flooring. The kitchen is built in contemporary fashion and features top-of-the-line stainless appliances.

Snaidero custom-built Italian kitchen cabinetry, as well as an island with breakfast bar that extends to the breakfast room and den, both of which have French doors leading outside.

Because of a set of French doors and a vaulted ceiling, the master bedroom is light and spacious. There’s also plenty of closet space and a bathroom with a bidet and a modern black-and-white tile pattern. A lengthy breezeway connects the house to the converted two-car garage, which is now a second guest bedroom suite or potential ADU situation, in addition to the guest bedroom and private office.

The little backyard contains only a few shrubs and potted plants, but there is an awning-covered concrete terrace for al fresco dining that overlooks a plunge pool. Behind the property, a private driveway shared with three other homes provides parking for one Woods-owned vehicle, as well as enough street parking in the family-oriented neighborhood.

Zach Woods was in Silicon Valley for six seasons. The story of “Silicon Valley” has always revolved around  “Jared”. Woods has come to be the show’s heart as well. Jared has remained the show’s only pure altruist amidst a world of backstabbing and self-interest. Jared has evolved into the prototypical character that Woods has been portraying on television for years, whether as Gabe Lewis on the American version of “The Office” or on USA’s “Playing House.” They’re the reserved observers, frequently the voice of reason, whose quiet demeanors conceal a diverse range of interests and experiences.

Before finishing the last season of Silicon Valley, Zach started the work of Avenue 5. After filming six whole seasons with the Silicon Valley team, Zach was comfortable with everyone on the set. He was expecting the same friendly atmosphere at Avenue 5 also.

” I kind of gave myself a pep talk before going to London where I was like, “don’t need this to be the same, don’t expect it to be the same because it’s not going to.”- Zach Woods

A violent Quiznos employee, a Vitamix blender aficionado, an orphanage dictator, a reluctant Bible quiz participant, and the world’s biggest admirer of the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Fortunate Son” are among Woods’ other roles. 

His humorous tastes are a wonderful compliment, with bold decisions that are fashioned in subtlety and grounded in reality. Woods is a regular performer on “ASSSSCAT,” one of the most well-known and longest-running improv programs at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Woods has had a front-row seat to the development of a collective he’s known and worked with for years, rising up the ranks to his position on the program.
