Back on March 20, 2015, the fine folks at Zillow Blog revealed that actress Jaime Pressly of the hit TV shows, My Name is Earl and Mom, listed her Sherman Oak home for $2.199 million on March 19, 2015 which was later increased to $2.399 million on May 12, 2015 and currently remains unsold. I wonder if the increase in price as anything to do with the home sitting in an active state.
The house measures 5 Beds/5 Baths on 5,438 sqft on a total lot size of 10,797 sqft built in 2007. The listing description states:
Hidden behind the manicured landscape and gated driveway is THE pinnacle property in Sherman Oaks. The home is the perfect combination of modern technology, timeless style, and classic comfort. Everything from the perfectly manicured grounds to the exquisitely detailed work within the house exemplifies craftsmanship and artistry. The custom iron railed grand staircase, Venetian plaster covered archways, Vaulted ceilings, open floor plan formal living room, which features an oversized fireplace, built in bookcase, and floor to ceiling bay windows. The professionally appointed kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, an oversized island, and a beautiful view into the backyard. The expansive master bedroom features a veranda overlooking the backyard, a fireplace, two walk in closets, and a master bath the size of another bedroom! The beautifully landscaped backyard houses a covered patio, sundeck and BBQ area, gated swimming pool and hot tub which cascades into the pool, and plenty of open room for playing on the lawn! This yard is truly an entertainer?s dream! No detail was overlooked, nor expense spared, in the creation of this masterpiece!
Pressly originally paid $2.250 million on March 16, 2008 which if sold at today's asking price would translate into a gain of $149K which would be slightly enough to cover real estate commissions so I am wondering if that is the reason for the increase in listing price although the increase was almost 2 months later. So go figure.
I am not sure where Pressly is going to next but she has an affinity for South of the Blvd SFV homes which I will explain that might help suggest her next location.

Previous to the Sherman Oaks home, Pressly was living in a Tarzana home (shown above) that measured 3 Beds/3.5 Baths on 2,955 sqft on a total lot size of 0.39 acres built in 1970. The property was purchased on August 10, 2004 for $949K and first listed for sale in February 6, 2006 with an unknown listing price, then listed for $1,599,000 on June 12, 2007, and finally sold for $1,270,000 on May 8, 2008. Recently, this house sold again for $1,150,000 on October 15, 2014. Also, this home was discussed at Variety Realestalker. Also, I believe this home was featured in MTV Cribs.

Previous to the Tarzana home, Pressly briefly lived in an Encino home (shown above) that measured 3 Beds/2 Baths on 1,874 sqft on a total lot size of 0.65 acres built in 1959. Pressly purchased on April 1, 2004 for $1,150,000 and quickly flipped 5 months later on August 2, 2004 for $1,290,000. Not sure what happened here, either this home was a business flip or she discovered something she didnt like after living in it.

Prior to the Tarzana home, Pressly was living in a Studio City home (shown above) that was once owned by George Clooney and Justin Berfield. The home measures 5 Beds/3.75 Baths on 3,282 sqft on a total lot size of 7,040 sqft built in 1937. Pressly purchased on July 5, 2002 for $920K and sold to Malcolm In The Middle star, Justin Berfield, on March 25, 2004 for $1,215,000. This home was previously discussed on this blog regarding Clooney's Studio City homes. This home most recently sold as a short sale for $1 million on February 17, 2011.

Lastly, prior to the Studio City home, Pressly purchased another Sherman Oaks home (shown above) that measured 3 Beds/1.75 Baths on 1,918 sqft on a total lot size of 6,801 sqft built in 1946. Pressly paid $565K on April 2, 2001 and sold for $590K on June 28, 2002. This home recently sold for $1,092,500 on March 11, 2013.

And as a bonus that is unconfirmed so take this with a heavy grain of salt, Pressly's early roots in the SFV may have been in this 4 unit Sherman Oaks (shown above) located at 4477 Hazeltine Ave. But since this would be a rental, its difficult to confirm the location.
So since Pressly has so far lived in Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Encino, and Tarzana, why not choose Woodland Hills or Calabasas to complete the South of the Blvd living experience.
