The award-winning actress, bestselling author, and chef has always been passionate about food and said 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 sale. 

Valerie Bertinelli wants $2.549 million for the 3-bedroom home.

Built in 1962, the contemporary style single-level ranch house is located in the sought-after Laurel Hills neighborhood, above Mullholland Drive in L.A.

The spacious home spans 2,529 square feet of living space — and comes with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

The open great room has a three-sided fireplace that anchors the living area, and vaulted ceilings that add an elegant architectural touch.

Glass sliders open up into the breezy backyard that has patios for lounging, a vine-laden pergola, a fire pit with built-in seating, and a large  pool.

The star of the home, however, is the designer kitchen.

Avid chefs will appreciate the top-notch amenities like stainless steel appliances, black-and-white patterned floor tiles, and white quartz countertops.

If the kitchen looks familiar, it’s because the last three seasons of Valerie’s Home Cooking were filmed here.
