Celebrity Real Estate: Real Housewives of Atlanta Star and Actress Kenya Moore Selling Van Nuys Home

[Update April 28, 2013]: This home sold for $685,000 on April 28, 2013 which was $348,000 more than the original purchase price of  $337,000 on June 17, 1998 and completed in roughly 7 months time. However this final sale price is $39,500 less than the original list price of $724,500 on September 10, 2012. Seems  at this time, that Kenya has permanently moved to Atlanta.

[Original Post]:

 Back on September 10, 2012, former Miss USA (1993) winner, Kenya Moore, quietly listed her long time home in the Van Nuys area for $724,500 on September 10, 2012 which has already been reduced by $25,500 to $699,000 on October 9, 2012. Prior to this most recent listing, the home was originally listed at $795,000 on July 25, 2012.

Moore parlayed her success from competing in beauty pageants where after winning the Miss USA title in 1993, she finished fifth in the Miss Universe competition (1993). She then went on to acting making guest appearances on shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and Girlfriends amongst others. She also appeared in several music video's for Jay-z, Shai, and Nas. She also appeared in the films, Waiting to Exhale, Deliver Us from Eva, and I Know Who Killed Me. She also is a producer, director, and author. 

Currently, Moore is the latest entrant on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 5 reality show. She decided to  appear on the reality show in order to develop her relationship with her boyfriend, Walter, who lives in Buckhead and owns a towing company that is contracted with the city of Atlanta (  So the move to Atlanta helps explain the reason for the listing of her longtime Van Nuys home. 

The home has 4 Beds/3.5 Baths on 2,714 sqft on a total lot size of 0.35 acres built in 1947. The home is on a flag shaped lot not too far from the 405 Freeway, the Valley Presbyterain Hospital, the former Sepulveda Drive-In, and Cameron Woods (one of the most filmed residential street in the world representing "Anywhere USA"). According to the listing:
Celebrity Owned, Private, Secluded, Retreat in Sherman Oaks adjacent Midvale Estates. The 200 foot private driveway leads to the 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath(including "jack and jill" bathroom)exclusive home. Travertine floors, double sided wood burning fire place, formal dining room. Open living room floor-plan with high ceilings, great natural light plus skylight, great for entertaining. Patio/Backyard access from the living room and master bedroom creates easy indoor/outdoor flow. Large master bath retreat features double vanities, separate glass/stone shower, jetted spa tub, and bidet. Side yard, back yard, and gated, large swimming pool area. 2 car garage with built on guesthouse/studio/gameroom/etc. (Bonus space is not included in square footage. ) This property has everything you can ask for. Must see to truly appreciate this private oasis.
Moore purchased this property on June 17, 1998 for $337,000 which if sold at the current asking price would yield a profit of $362,000 before taxes, commissions, and any other home upkeep expenses. We wish Moore luck selling during the competitive and difficult winter periods. If things dont work out, she is always welcome back to Van Nuys.
