Peter Facinelli has decided to sell his Cape Cod–style home in the Toluca Lake area of Los Angeles, just shy of five years since first purchasing it in August 2013. The Twilight alum first snapped up the home for $2.015 million shortly after he and his then-wife Jennie Garth officially split; it’s currently on the market for a relatively reasonable $2.695 million.
The two-story house, which spans 3,854 square feet, is a stark white with deep navy blue trim on the outside, and boasts five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It sits on a quiet street with a thick hedge and an electronic driveway gate for maximum privacy. Inside, the house takes on a sophisticated, cozy air, with a modest sitting room just off the front entryway, featuring a fireplace and large picture window looking out toward the front of the home. A large open archway leads to an adjoining formal dining room, outfitted with two generous windows and a coffered ceiling. The nearby kitchen is charming with a large, double-wide marble-countertop island dominating most of the space (it’s an ideal snack bar for quick meals or midafternoon bites). Just off the kitchen is an informal dining bay and family room with a built-in media wall and French doors leading out onto the backyard.
The home’s five bedrooms are scattered throughout the home, with one downstairs bedroom that can easily be converted into a home office, guest bedroom or staff quarters; upstairs, several bedrooms share a narrow hallway bathroom with a black marble double-sink vanity. The master suite has its own sizable bathroom, as well as a sitting area complete with fireplace. (A marble-lined shower is a luxurious touch in the airy, light-filled master bath.) Out back, the home features a large dark-bottom swimming pool with an inset spa. A lush green lawn runs alongside the longer edge of the pool, with a cozy terrace ideal for warmer-weather lounging.
Prior to purchasing the Toluca Lake bachelor pad, Facinelli co-owned a larger 8,416-square-foot Paul Williams–designed traditional with his ex-wife Garth, located, ironically, just around the corner from this current home that is on the market. The former couple sold that home to Big Bang Theory creator Bill Prady for $3.99 million following their divorce.
