Back on April 1, 2015, the always informative folks at LA Times Hot Property revealed that celebrity real estate flippers, Corbin Bernsen and Amanda Pays, have sold their Valley Village personal residence and their Toluca Lake flipping investment. Bernsen is an actor best known for his role as divorce attorney, "Arnold Becker" on L.A. Law while Pays is also an actress with various TV and Film roles. 

Starting with the Valley Village personal residence (shown above) which was purchased on January 11, 2001 for $900K and first listed on April 2, 2015 for $2,399,000 and sold on June 5, 2015 for $2,255,000 representing a gain of $1,355,000 not factoring renovation expenses, commission, carrying fees, etc. 

The home measures 4 Beds/4.25 Baths on 3,340 sqft on a total lot size of 0.27 acres built in 1936. The listing description states:
Purchased it in 2011 with a complete and gorgeous renovation this is a one of a kind spectacular Pays Bernsen offering. The main house is 3 bedrooms with an office, screening room, den and formal living room but the open kitchen/dining room that leads out to the European inspired backyard and pool is the heart of the home. Polished concrete and wood floors, amazing iron floor to ceiling windows and doors give it a style of it's own thatthat must be seen. The "barn" guesthouse a separate building in back with its own bathroom, has been turned into the most amazing bunkhouse for older children but could be used any way you want . At 669 sq ft it would be amazing offices, pool house with loft or whatever your family needs.
