From her humble beginnings on the hit sitcom One Day at a Time, Valerie Bertinelli has now become a household name thanks to her cooking show, Valerie’s Home Cooking, and her role as co-host of the network’s Kids Baking Championship.
The award-winning actress, bestselling author, and chef has always been passionate about food and has maintained that entertaining family and friends brings her immense joy.
For years, fans have not only enjoyed her lip-smacking recipes but have also been enamored by her gorgeous houses with kitchens that culinary dreams are made of.
According to our sources, Bertinelli is now cooking up a sweet deal of the real estate kind.
Just two years after she purchased her charming Laurel Hills home for $1.92 million, the actress has listed the property for $2.549 million.
This follows her split from husband Tom Vitale. Earlier this year, the Food Network star announced that she filed for divorce after 11 years of marriage. Ready to embrace the single life, Valerie is now letting go of the family home she shared with Vitale.
And she’s likely to see a super-speedy sale.
The 3-bed, 3-bath home was listed for sale in late July, with Renee Ogiens and Emily Trebek at Compass in charge of the listing.
One month later, the property is already under contract and accepting back-up offers, public records show. But before a buyer snatches it off the market, let’s take a look inside Valerie’s beautiful abode.
A closer look at Valerie Bertinelli’s house in Los Angeles
Built in 1962, the contemporary style single-level ranch house is located in the sought-after Laurel Hills neighborhood, above Mullholland Drive, and offers stunning views of the San Fernando Valley.
The spacious home spans 2,529 square feet of living space — and comes with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The open great room features ashy-brown wooden floors, a three-sided fireplace that anchors the living area, and vaulted ceilings that add an elegant architectural touch.
The entire space is filled with natural light while the open floor plan makes it perfect for entertaining.
Glass sliders open up into the breezy backyard that features jaw-dropping landscaping, lush greenery, extensive patios for lounging, a vine-laden pergola, a fire pit with built-in seating for chilly evenings, and a large rectangular pool.
The primary suite comes with a spacious walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom that opens to the pool area.
The star of the home, however, is the designer kitchen.
Inside Bertinelli’s kitchen, where ‘Valerie’s Home Cooking’ was filmed
Avid chefs will appreciate the top-notch amenities including stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, black-and-white patterned floor tiles, and white quartz countertops.
Valerie’s kitchen also features the easily recognizable navy-blue cabinets and rustic wooden open shelving that caught our eyes on her show, as well as a large butler’s pantry with a full-size refrigerator and sink.
If the kitchen looks familiar, it’s because the last three seasons of Valerie’s Home Cooking were filmed here.
Beyond its undeniable charm and famous owner, the property offers easy access to tons of restaurants, shopping areas, Westside, Valley, Runyon Canyon Park, and Fryman Canyon.
Comprehensive renovations have been carried out recently to update the space for potential buyers. The listing is held by Renee Ogiens and Emily Trebek at Compass.
