Celebrity Real Estate: Actor Scott Grimes Lists For Loss in Woodland Hills

Back on October 23, 2012, the always informative Lauren Beale of LA Times Hot Property revealed actor Scott Grimes Woodland Hills home listing for $1.199 million. 

Scott Grimes broke out in the acting scene at a young age in 1984 appearing in the film A Doctor's Story as well as It Came Upon the Midnight Clear with former SFV resident Mickey Rooney. Grimes also appeared in television playing roles on The Twilight Zone, Who's the Boss, Star Trek: The Next Generation, My Two Dads, 21 Jump Street, Wings, Party of Five, ER, Dexter, and Band of Brothers. Grimes is also a voice artist voicing "Steve Smith" for American Dad!. Grimes is also a singer-songwriter who co-wrote and performed the soft rock single Sunset Blvd

The home measures 4 Beds/3.5 Baths on 3,403 sqft on a total lot size of 0.39 acres built in 1973. According to the listing:
Celebrity private gated home in Walnut Acres. This remodeled home has newer windows, crown moldings, recessed lighting throughout, french windows & doors throughout. Formal living room, formal dining room. Media room, den/office & bar. Large gourmet kitchen with island, newer appliances, large pantry & granite eating bar. There is a very expensive sound system throughout the house & outside. Master bed is very large with walk-in closet & scrumptious remodeled master bath. The backyard is like a tropical island resort, entertainers dream yard with pebble tech beach pool, slide. Pool house, large barbeque area with granite counters, & sport, basketball court, and lots of lush landscaping. Wating for you to enjoy!standard sale.
I am not sure why Grimes is selling his Woodland Hills home but it could be related to his divorce with Dawn-Bailey Grimes back in 2007 since she is also listed on the property records. The happy couple purchased this home back in the zany real estate days on May 27 2005 for $1,200,000. As it stands now the home is listed for $1,000 less than the purchase price which means that when commissions, taxes, renovations, and other real estate expenses are factored in, the Grimes will assuredly be taking a loss unless someone comes in with a higher offering price.

Another possibility for listing the home could be that the Grimes are downsizing as they also own a West Hills home that was purchased a year later after the Woodland Hills home on May 15, 2006 for $880,000. The home measures 3 Bed/3 Baths on 1,939 sqft on a total lot size of 0.42 acres. That home is currently not listed and would probably end up taking a loss if sold. 

Scott may have also previously lived in other parts of the Valley like Sherman Oaks, Studio City, and Van Nuys but I cannot confirm those locations so dont quote me.
