Ricki Lake Just Sold The Brentwood Home She Bought From Courteney Cox For $8.45 Million

Daytime talking head Ricki Lake just sold her longtime Los Angeles estate at 230 N Carmelina Ave for $8,450,000!

Property records show that Lake purchased the 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,226 square foot home on October 23, 2002 from famous “Friend” Courteney Cox for $5,600,000.

After living there for more than a decade, Lake listed it in July 2013 for $8,750,000, and it sold on January 24, 2014.

Nestled in a primo location in the heart of affluent Brentwood, the mini-estate has a roster of A-list Hollywood neighbors that includes Maria Shriver, Arianna Huffington, Lindsay Buckingham, Tobey Maguire and Betty White.

In addition to the famous faces living nearby, the home had a lot to offer the unknown buyer. Upon entering the house, an extraordinary great room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings and french doors gives way to an adjacent dining room and formal living room, all with perfect flow, one to the next. Upstairs, Lake’s former master bedroom suite has two fireplaces, a sitting area and radiant heated floors in the master bathroom.

The backyard goes beyond the ordinary, with a lush and private garden and an oversized outdoor covered living room next to a swimming pool and spa.
