Kirstie Alley has parted with her Los Feliz estate after more than two decades.
The actress sold her six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home in an off-market sale for $7.8 million, represented by real estate firm Deasy Penner Podley. Louise Leach and Juan Longfellow were the listing agents. The 6,958-square-foot house was constructed in 1931 by architect Armand Monaco, who built the Italianate villa-style home for restaurateur and hotelier Victor Hugo Aleidis, whose Victor Hugo restaurant in downtown Los Angeles was a popular destination during the 1920s and ’30s.
The property sits on nearly an acre of land and features a swimming pool, a pool house, grottos and a turtle pond, and Alley kept ring-tailed lemurs as pets in a shaded cage on the front lawn. Other touches include broad terraces, Corinthian columns, a circular entrance gallery and an antique carved marble fireplace, ending with a long gated driveway.
Alley listed the home in November 2018 at $11.97 million and cut the price in May 2019 to $10.75 million. She first purchased it in 2000 for $2.998 million. Neighbors have included Jim Parsons, Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and film producer Megan Ellison. Robert Pattinson, Gwen Stefani, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Flea, Noah Wyle and Tim Curry have also previously lived on the A-list street.
The actress, who most recently appeared in episodes of The Goldbergs and Scream Queens, also sold her waterfront residence on the semi-remote Islesboro Island, off the coast of Maine, last year. She maintains a compound near the Church of Scientology’s headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, as a longtime member.
