Actress and comedienne Caroline Rhea has sold her 4,042-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hancock Park neighborhood for $3,200,000.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of Rhea's house, which took place over the summer but has not been written about until now. We owe a major shout-out and a huge thanks to reader Gabrielle, who was one of the many commenters to our "Now taking requests" post from earlier on Thursday. Gabrielle had asked us to profile Rhea's house, and in so doing, we discovered that Rhea very, very quietly just sold a house she long had owned, at 155 S. Plymouth Boulevard in Hancock Park.

Records show that Rhea sold the house on June 30, with the deal being recorded on July 10. The house did not appear to have been on the market (which is probably in part why the sale escaped notice).

Built in 1922, the seven-bedroom house that Rhea just sold has four baths, according to public records. Outside on the 0.27-acre (11,848-square-foot) lot is a swimming pool, according to public records. Rhea purchased the house in late 1999 for $930,000, according to public records.

Our pal E.J. over at the Movieland Directory has had this house in his database, as have the thorough folks over at Celebrity Address Aerial.

Where does Rhea hang her hat now when she's in L.A.? We're not 100 percent sure, but records show that she owns kind of a weird property in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills that has two houses on it: a three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,924-square-foot house that was built in 1925, and a two-bedroom, one-bath, 1,169-square-foot house that was built in 1923, according to public records. Rhea purchased the houses and the minuscule, 0.09-acre lot for $1,655,000 in early 2006, according to public records. The property is next door to a 2,011-square-foot house that actress Eva Longoria has owned since buying it in early 2005 for $1,150,000, according to public records. (That house, however, is not Eva's primary residence.)

While in New York, Rhea lives in a 1,681-square-foot condo unit on West 89th Street on Manhattan's Upper West Side that she purchased in 2002 for an undisclosed amount (probably around $1 million), according to public records.
