Daniel LaRusso’s House on Cobra Kai: A Real-Life Tuscan-Style Villa That's Nowhere Near Los Angeles
In Cobra Kai, Netflix’s critically acclaimed revival of the iconic ’80s movie, the original Karate Kid, Daniel LaRusso, has moved up in the world.
He traded the rundown apartment complex he lived in with his mom for a gorgeous Tuscan villa in a posh neighborhood of LA, where he lives with his wife, Amanda, and their kids.
Carefully picked to reflect Daniel San’s new status in the world, his luxurious-yet-homey Spanish villa is said to be located in Encino, a quiet, affluent neighborhood in San Fernando Valley.
But in real life, the LaRusso residence isn’t even in California.
The house is actually in Marietta, Georgia, a beautiful community set just northwest of Atlanta.
Last listed for sale in April 2021 for $2,650,000, the house was recently taken off the market by a buyer who paid $2.4 million for the 2008-built home.
In fact, the new owners have announced plans of sharing their beautiful abode with fans of the show, and will be listing it as a rental on Airbnb.
The charming Tuscan villa has 6 bedrooms and 7 baths spread across roughly 9,000 square feet of living space.
As seen on the Netflix show, the house comes with tons of outdoor space, including a resort-like pool and al fresco dining, and there’s also a greenhouse and an indoor atrium.
Despite the action of Cobra Kai taking place in California, many of the locations seen on screen were filmed in Georgia.
In fact, the only prominent location from the series that’s actually based in California is Johnny Lawrence’s apartment building, which is in LA.
