Actress Kirstie Alley has paid about $749,000 to purchase a gated English Cotswold-style Tudor house in Los Angeles, according to public records and the Los Angeles Times. Built in 1925, the 1,288-square-foot house is in the east Hollywood neighborhood and is south of the Los Feliz area, according to public records. The recently restored, three-bedroom house has three baths, flush-mounted speakers in all rooms with separate volume controls, a plasma hookup in the living room with surround sound, all-matching English doorknobs and plates, etched bronze window pulls, stained glass, hardwood, custom solid cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances and hexagon marble in the master bath, according to listing information. Other features include recessed low-voltage lighting, a hot tub, and a vintage clawfoot tub, according to listing information. The house originally was listed for $779,000 and later was reduced to $759,000, according to listing information. Its owner paid $465,000 for it in early 2005, ostensibly before the renovation. The Times' Ruth Ryon is reporting today that Alley will use the house "as an office and perhaps as living quarters for her assistants." Oddly, though, Ryon made no mention of Alley's own residence on Aberdeen Avenue in the nearby Los Feliz neighborhood, which she purchased in 2000 for $2,998,000, according to public records. We can report that Alley's residence in Los Feliz is just three doors west of Gwen Stefani's former house in Los Feliz, and it's just a few doors east of a former house that actor Noah Wyle owned until selling it in 2004 for $3,325,000, according to public records. Although public records do show that Alley's most recent purchase in east Hollywood has closed, they don't yet show an exact purchase price. When we learn that information, we'll provide it here.
