Actress and director Joanna Kerns, who starred in the 1980s sitcom “Growing Pains,” has sold her house in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades neighborhood for $1,655,000, according to public records.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report that Kerns, 53, sold the 2,019-square-foot house at 1155 Via de la Paz in Pacific Palisades, which she and husband Marc Appleton bought in 2004 for $1.4 million, according to public records. Built in 1951, the traditional-style, three-bedroom house had been listed for $1,650,000, according to listing information. Features in the house include three baths, a private upstairs master suite, hardwood floors throughout, two fireplaces, an attached garage, and French doors off the living room, which open to a private patio, according to listing information.
Kerns is a longtime Southern California homeowner. She and her husband, Marc Appleton, long have owned a house on 1.74 acres in the Riven Rock area of Santa Barbara, Calif. Also, in late 2003, they sold a 3,707-square-foot house that they had owned at 178 N. Carmelina Avenue in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood for $2,395,000. Finally, the couple also owns 2.21 acres of land in Tisbury, Mass., which they bought in 1997 for $167,000, according to public records.
It’s not clear whether Kerns and Appleton are spending less time in L.A. and are retreating to Santa Barbara, or whether they will buy another property in the Los Angeles area.
