The Los Angeles-area estate of actress Leah Remini is back for the New Year. The King of Queens star initially listed the property last autumn. At present, the 2001-built mixed architectural is tagged at $12.995 million.
With 10,100 sq. ft. of interior living area and 1.58 acres of grounds, the estate is generously proportioned. The house dates to 2001, and features exterior architecture inspired by English and Mediterranean styles. Vine-clad in spots and sporting a roofline that vaguely suggests Storybook but is finished in tile, as well as an entry that hints at Classicism and a rear roof peak and upper level balcony that suggest Alpine, the home is a bit of an architectural pastiche.
The interiors are as varied, and as engaging. Details include interior French doors with ornate panels, casement windows with fanlights, fireplaces, built-in bookshelves, LED accent lighting, and vaulted and tray ceilings. Fireplaces, gloss- and matte-finished hardwood, and recessed and pendant light fixtures also contribute to the living style.
The home’s specialty spaces include a formal dining room with one wall finished in mirrored panels, as well as a billiard room. A detached guest house on the property has been purposed as a dance studio during Remini’s ownership tenure. The grounds are quite sylvan, with mature trees forming a natural boundary that suggests forest; a walking path ambles to the centerpiece of the exterior, a kidney-shaped pool overlooking Studio City.
Remini currently hosts People Puzzler on Game Show Network.
