Singer/TV host/gastric bypass patient Carnie Wilson has listed her five-bedroom, 4,491-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Tarzana area for $2,249,000.
Mad props this morning to our friends over at the Real Estalker for their scoop on the listing of the house, which is at 5400 Shirley Avenue in Tarzana, by the 39-year-old Wilson (pictured with Montel Williams).
Before discussing the house itself, we should note that we loved the Real Estalker's great list of various Tarzana residents over the years. To that, we would add one of our personal favorite actors, Luke Perry, who had owned the 2,382-square-foot house (just down the block and across the street from Carnie's house) at 5315 Shirley Avenue until his California Property Trust sold it in the summer of 1999 for $570,000, according to public records. Also, the Tarzana house that actor Wilmer Valderrama is selling, which we wrote about on July 1, is just a block north of the back yard of Wilson's house (Wilson's property extends from Shirley Avenue all the way to Calvin Avenue).
As the Real Estalker correctly noted, Wilson and her session and touring musician Rob Bonfiglio paid $1,510,000 for the one-story house in December 2003. Built in 1949, the ranch house has five baths, four fireplaces, crown moldings, recessed lighting, plantation shutters, hardwood and travertine floors, surround sound, an alarm system, and a cook's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, maple cabinets, skylights and a walk-in pantry, according to listing information. Other features include a formal dining room, a living room with vaulted beam ceilings and a new custom window bench, a den with 15-foot vaulted ceilings and extensive cherry wood built-ins, a detached bonus room, and a master suite with French doors, a fireplace, a large walk-in closet, a spa tub and his and hers sinks, according to listing information. Outside on the 0.68-acre, walled and gated property are a circular drive, a large front yard, a new, 1,300-square-foot redwood deck and a park-like yard, according to public records and listing information.
