In 2017, actor Ray Romano picked up a 1956-built single-level in Venice, California. Romano hung onto the property for about five years, but the 1,863 square-footer was back on the market last month with an asking price of $2.5 million. The house closed again within weeks, going to its new owner for $2.3 million.
From the street, the suburban box shows off clapboard, a garage with barn doors, and a recessed tiled entry with the front door painted dark emerald green. Inside, a wide-open shared living space with new wide-plank hardwood — the kitchen features an island painted indigo blue — incorporates all common areas.
There are three bedrooms and three baths in the home. Like the shared space, they have been designed in a clean, plain, and pleasingly unpretentious sense of style that hints at the build era, and the master boasts French doors opening to a little patio. Baths feature subway tile and small hexagonal floor tile, with the master receiving a double vanity and a steel-framed shower door.
