Back on September 28, 2011, the always hilarious Your Mama at the Realestalker discussed the purchase of a Encino Ranch home by a celebrity actress named Leighton Meester. Some digging around the internet revealed that Miss Meester is an American actress and singer who gained her fame portraying "Blair Waldorf" in the CW television series, Gossip Girl in addition to several other performances in TV, film, and music, She even had a part on Entourage which is a big favorite of the SFValleyblog crew. Now that we have put a face to this mysterious buyer, lets talk about the property.
This home measures 2,847sqft on approximately 0.6 acres with 4 Beds/4.25 Baths and built in 1948 (thats a really old house) located in the Royal Oaks area of Encino. The property features all the latest updates including stainless steel appliances with granite counters, smoked glass breakfast bar, glass tiled fireplace, large walk-in closet, luxurious bath with soaking tub, steam shower, a built in barbecue, black bottom pool (which appears to be elevated from the house on higher grounds), pool bar, dual changing rooms for the pool, maids/guest suite, and an alarm system.
Meester paid $1,457,500 on June 08,2011 which was last sold in April 2002 for $844,000. Property records state that home was purchased under a trust. The SFValleyblog welcomes Meester to the SFV and hopes she enjoys what is known in some circles as the "Beverly Hills of the SFV."
