‘Sopranos’ Star Drea de Matteo Slashes Price of Her Laurel Canyon Home to $3.6M
Actress Drea de Matteo, who famously tackled the role of Adriana on HBO’s crime drama, “The Sopranos,” has sliced the price on her Los Angeles house.
According to a report from Dirt, de Matteo initially listed the manse for nearly $4 million last summer. But the place never found a buyer, so it’s back on the market for $3.6 million.
Even with the price cut, the star is still likely to profit on the sale eventually. She purchased the property in 2004 for a little more than $2 million.
The four-bedroom, four-bath, nearly century-old Laurel Canyon home is spread across 3,400 square feet and boasts quite the pedigree as a party pad for the rich and famous.
Among the boldface names who’ve either owned or rented the house are actress Mary Astor, rocker David Bowie, and musician Denny Doherty, of the Mamas and the Papas, according to the listing.
The Hollywood Hills Spanish turret home teems with old-world charm—funky tile in the kitchen and bath; decorative, wrought-iron details; and handcarved, exposed beams. Situated above the Sunset Strip, the location offers quiet privacy and beautiful views of the ocean, Santa Monica mountains, and the lights of Los Angeles.
A massive fireplace anchors the living room, which is crowned by a vaulted barrel ceiling. There’s a large, party-ready dining room and an eat-in kitchen for smaller affairs. The primary bedroom is in the turret and offers a balcony, walk-in dressing room, and remarkable tile work in the bathroom.
Outside, there’s more tile on the stairs that lead to the patio, covered wood deck, pool, and spa. The listing includes two two-car detached garages, one of which could easily be converted into a living space for guests.
The Emmy-winning actress currently can be seen on the Amazon Prime musical drama, “Paradise City.” And de Matteo also co-hosts a podcast called “Made Women” that digs deep into each old episode of “The Sopranos.”
