Back on September 22, 2014, the fine folks at Zillow Blog revealed the actress Annie Potts has just listed her Spanish retreat estate in Tarzana for $6.495 million on September 19, 2014. Potts may not be a household name but she is definitely recognizable having played roles as the adorable "Janine Melnitz" in Ghostbusters I and II (I feel like watching that movie now, loved the reference to the SFV in II), "Iona" in Pretty Pink, "Mary Jo Jackson Shively" on Designing Women, and a whole host of other roles in TV and film.
The home measures 5 Beds/5.5 Baths on 6,481 sqft on a total lot size of 1.47 acres built in 1934. The listing description states:
This Spanish Hacienda style home built in 1934 offers incredible indoor/outdoor living opportunities, original period details and absolute privacy in an ideal location. Its rustic clay tile roof shelters a 2-car garage, traditional plaster walls and surrounding patio areas. Inside, floor and baseboard pavers run through an oversized family room with a fireplace and a custom stained glass wall looking onto a lush backyard. This family area flows into a formal dining room with large windows and its own fireplace, and on to a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances. The master bedroom boasts a fireplace, master bath, spacious walk-in closet, attached master study, private patio and lap pool. 4 additional bedrooms feature hardwood floors and 3 are en suite. A separate guesthouse features an additional bedroom, bathroom and living area. The back of the home opens to a spacious yard with a covered loggia, living and dining areas complete with an outdoor kitchen and a resort-style pool.
Potts purchased this estate on June 16, 1998 for $1,845,000 which if sold at today's asking price translates into a massive gain of $4,650,000 which doesnt include taxes, commissions, carrying costs, and any renovations. Just to put things into perspective, this home is the second highest offering tt the time of writing this post. Not sure if Potts made significant improvements since her purchase but the almost triple sized profit is amazing. So amazing that I am suspect if it will sell that high. Only time will tell. Hate to see a legend leave the SFV as Potts has expressed her desire to move back to NYC because she is spending more time over there.
