Actress Katherine Heigl is selling her house in Los Feliz.
Priced at $2.659 million, the Southern Colonial-style two-story features French doors, high ceilings and verandas. There are two fireplaces, four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and nearly 3,700 square feet of living space. The grounds include mature landscaping, a swimming pool and a spa.
Heigl, 34, was a regular on "Grey's Anatomy" (2005-10). Her film work includes this year's "One for the Money," "Life as We Know It" (2010) and "The Ugly Truth" (2009). She will star next year in "The Big Wedding." The animal activist has launched a line of pet products whose proceeds will help support spay and neutering programs.
She paid $2.55 million for the property in 2007, according to public records, the same year she married country singer Josh Kelley.
Dorothy Carter and Michael Orland of Keller Williams Realty's Los Feliz office are the listing agents.
Actress is ready for a new scene
Actress and singer Connie Stevens has listed her longtime Westside estate for $18 million.
The Paul Williams-designed main house features a two-story entry with a circular staircase; living, dining and family rooms; a library; a gym; a wine cellar; an atrium; a billiard room; seven bedrooms; and eight bathrooms in 12,000 square feet of living space.
The two-acre site includes a tennis court with viewing deck, a swimming pool, fountains, a gazebo and a rose garden. There also are two one-bedroom guesthouses, a chauffeur's apartment, a recording studio and a pool house.
The actress said she will miss her "magnificent" roses, the 150-year-old oak tree outside her bedroom, the vegetable garden and having enough room for her animals to run free. "And, of course," she added, "the memories."
Stevens, 74, wrote, produced and directed "Saving Grace B. Jones," now in holiday release. She starred in the TV series "Hawaiian Eye" (1959-63) and "Wendy and Me" (1964-5).
Stevens paid $350,000 for the property in 1974, public records show.
The listing says the property is in Holmby Hills, although the Los Angeles Times Mapping Database considers the location to be Beverly Crest.
Dee Crawford of Keller Williams in Beverly Hills and Jeeb O'Reilly of the Agency in Beverly Hills are the listing agents.
