Actor Goran Visnjic of TV's "ER" has sold his 2,634-square-foot, Spanish villa-style house in Los Angeles' Sherman Oaks for $1,780,000 to hockey star Sheldon Souray.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of the house at 4124 Madelia Avenue in Sherman Oaks. Visnjic originally had listed the house for $1,700,000, which meant that it sold for above ask.
Although Souray plays for the Edmonton Oilers in Canada, he has a clear reason for wanting to have a home in L.A.; he has two daughters with his estranged wife, former "Baywatch" star Angelica Bridges. Obviously, Souray wants his own house in Los Angeles where he can visit and host his two daughters.
Back on July 4, we broke the story of Visnjic's listing of the three-bedroom house, which was built in 1934. Set high on a knoll, the house is surrounded by lush Mediterranean grounds with mature palms, sculptured gardens and total privacy, according to listing information. Features include two baths, an octagonal studio with views, an open gazebo sanctuary, custom cabinetry in the family room, distressed wood floors, smooth ceilings, French doors, Spanish pavers, an art studio, and a detached, equipped guest unit with a three-quarters bath that faces the pool, according to listing information.
Visnjic paid $1,150,000 in early 2000 for the house, according to public records.
We'll keep you posted on where Visnjic, who recently adopted a baby boy, is moving once we find out.
