Back on September 25, 2013, the always hilarious Your Mama at the Realestalker revealed that Dawson's Creek star, James Van Der Beek, has listed is Valley Village home for $1.295 million on August 19, 2013 which was reduced to $1.250 million on September 18, 2013, and then reduced again on October 11, 2013 to $1,195,000.
The home measures 4 Beds/3 Baths on 3,017 sqft on a total lot size of 9,098 sqft built in 1936. The listing description states:
Don't miss this Amazing 4 Bed, 3 Bath, plus bonus room, and heated Pebbletec pool in prime Valley Village. Great energy in this spiritual oasis. Large Great room, with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and outdoor patio/pool access. Open kitchen with bar counter, SubZero fridge, and Wolf stove. Hardwood and slate flooring. Fireplace. Oversized Master Suite with spa tub, steam shower, and French doors that overlook the pool. Feeds to Colfax Charter School. This 3000sqft jewel won't last.
Van Der Beek purchased this home for $1,260,000 on February 21, 2006 which means if sold at today's asking price translates into a loss of $65,000 not factoring in expenses and those hefty commissions. Its not known if Van Der Beek actually lives in this home or if it is used as an investment property. Additionally, Van Der Beek's current residence is not known so its possible he is still living in this home awaiting an eventual sale.

Prior to this home, Van Der Beek lived in the hills of Studio City occupying a 3 Bed/3.5 bath home on 2,961 sqft on a total lot size of 0.55 acres built in 1999. This home was purchased on February 14, 2001 for $1,330,000 and sold at a $495,000 profit not factoring expenses for $1,825,000 on June 5, 2009 near the bottom of the current housing boom. The listing description states:
Celebrity estate, private gated jewel, nestled in the Studio City hills, has 180 degree jetliner views, 3 beds, 3 1/2 baths, upstairs master suite with wood cathedral ceilings, 2 flat grassy yards, 3 fireplaces, gourmet entertainers kitchen, gorgeous baths, surround sound throughout, tight security, hardwood mahogany floors and Brazilian slate, open floor plan, french doors, gazebo with built-in Viking range and bar, large motor court, spectacular pool and spa, private patio upstairs from master. Fabulous!
We wish Van Der Beek luck in finding a new home (if hasn't already) and hopefully he still maintains a residence in the SFV.
