She may not be a doctor in real life, but actress Sarah Chalke has finished her residency in her classic Studio City, CA, home. Sarah, who played Dr. Elliot Reid on NBC’s Scrubs for nine years, just listed her beautiful five-bedroom, six-bathroom house for $3.895 million. She bought the house back in 2009 for $3.35 million, right before she finished her tenure on the show. That’s a job-well-done present we can get behind!
Located in the coveted Longridge Estates neighborhood, Sarah’s home is a timeless take on California living. Measuring 5,410 square feet, the spacious home built in 2009 is a classic beauty that serves as a private oasis in the city. Step through the front door onto 5-inch-plank walnut floors, then continue down the open hallways to an elegant living room, formal dining room, and library. In the cook’s kitchen, Carrara marble and Viking appliances are paired with a cozy breakfast room and a large built-in desk. In the adjoining great room, a custom stone fireplace lends a touch of personality. We can picture Sarah playing with her growing family outside in the grassy backyard, which also features a pool, spa, built-in barbecue, and fire pit. Hey, if the Scrubs cast ever is down for a reunion, we know where they can hang out! (Although Chalke got her big break on Roseanne and was a regular on How I Met Your Mother, opposite Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel, so we’re guessing those crews could come chill too.)
Next, ascend the cascading stairs to the hotel-style master suite, where vaulted ceilings and a fireplace sit next to his-and-hers walk-in closets plus a spacious bathroom with a spa tub and shower. An adjoining office provides a great spot to work at home, while the current children’s playroom could easily be converted into a media room. We’re guessing it’s hard for Sarah to say goodbye to this California charmer, but we’re excited to see where she, fiancé Jamie Afifi, and children Charlie and Frankie plant their roots next!
