Former ‘Today” show co-anchor Meredith Vieira has just purchased a modest but charming West Coast home in the Hollywood Hills. According to public records, Vieira dropped $1,115,000 for a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,783 square foot home on a secluded cul-de-sac. A tried-and-true East Coaster who already owns two homes in New York, Vieira may have purchased a new place on the opposite coast to get away from the drama that goes along with being daytime TV royalty. Perhaps Ann Curry will soon follow her out West?Vieira’s new California oasis is surrounded by views of the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory, Lake Hollywood, and sparkling valley lights. This sophisticated home is located near the celeb-friendly hiker’s paradise, Runyon Canyon.The home features a gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, a living room with a wall of reclaimed brick, a hearth fireplace and gleaming hardwood floors throughout. Wood and glass doors open to the spectacular views and a must-have for any California home – a covered veranda.
