The Los Angeles home of Kirstie Alley, known for her work on the iconic ‘80’s sitcom Cheers
, has hit the market for the first time in nearly two decades, asking $11.97 million. A Mediterranean-style mansion in the star-studded Los Feliz neighborhood, the home was scooped up by the Emmy-winner in 2000 for just under $3 million, Variety
reports. Should the home sell at this price, Alley, who most recently finished as runner-up in the most recent series of Celebrity Big Brother
, stands to make a tidy profit.Constructed in 1932, the gated Italianate estate comprises one acre of meticulously manicured lawns and is guarded by a soaring hedge of Bougainvillea. The home’s interiors, which include six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms within a vast 8,870 square feet, match the grandiosity of the Italian villa-inspired exteriors.Original details and hand carved woodwork throughout the home, a sweeping glass ceiling staircase and rotunda entry, and custom-crafted tall iron windows all pay tribute to the architecture of another era. Modern conveniences, such as a sprawling kitchen with plenty of counter space and a massive entertaining terrace, add to the property’s livability. Elsewhere on the grounds, towering eucalyptus trees shade a sparkling swimming pool. Picturesque grottos, brooks and ponds will make you forget you are in busy Los Angeles.For more information on this stunning sanctuary, Konstantine Valissarakos of Nourmand & Associates
