Hollywood-Pedigreed L.A. Home of ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Star Doris Roberts Comes to Market

SELLER: Estate of Doris Roberts
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $2,450,000
SIZE: 3,703 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Just over a year after she passed away at the age of 90, the longtime Los Angeles home of beloved and comedically savvy actress Doris Roberts has come up for sale at $2.45 million. Property records suggest the five-time Emmy winning “Everybody Loves Raymond” star acquired the Hollywood Hills Spanish Colonial cottage in 1976 for just $138,000. Built in 1927 for three-time Oscar-nominated film-noir producer Hal B. Wallis and once the home of pop culture icon James Dean, Miz Roberts dubbed the house “Casa De Glade” as a humorous homage to the Clio Award winning commercial for Glade air freshener that, so the story goes, earned her the money for the down payment.

Set into a hairpin curve on double lot above Beachwood Canyon with over-the-tree tops mountain and canyon views, the 3,703-square-foot residence has three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. An exterior stairway next to the street-level three-car garage climbs to a generously ample living room that features lustrous hardwood floors, exposed wood ceiling beams, a fireplace and an arched picture window. Steel-trimmed French doors open the living room to a long and slender sun porch cantilevered over the driveway while the formal dining room links through a butler’s pantry to the kitchen. There are two bedrooms on the upper floor, including the master suite that provides two walk-in closets, and another bedroom and bathroom on the lower level along with a cozy, cantina-style family room with wet bar and fireplace. A tree-shaded terrace nestled into the landscaped hillside behind the house has an outdoor fireplace/bbq and gives way to a flat and grassy area that overlooks a walled courtyard with swimming pool, spa and outdoor kitchen/bar under a terra-cotta tile-roofed ramada.

For at least the last decade, Miz Roberts additionally maintained a two-bedroom and 2.5-bathroom duplex apartment with two terraces in a luxurious, full-service post-war building on New York City’s Central Park South that came up for sale earlier in the year at $3.295 million and remains available at the same price.

    Not my cup of tea, the sun porch that, let’s face it, is overhanging the street, seems a little tacky, certainly not a place I’d retreat to, no matter how infrequent the traffic might be — never been crazy about a house that runs a very real danger of an automotive collision…


    It does, however, definitely give a vibe of home where there was a lot of love and laughter.

      SERIOUSLY?!! The sun porch that overhangs the street….That house is up in the Hollywood Hills!!! (I doubt you’ve ever been up there) There is NO speeding up there, and that house, is in absolutely NO danger whatsoever!!! Its been sitting there perfectly fine for 90 YEARS, even surviving earthquakes, so get a grip on reality here! You couldn’t afford it as a retreat or otherwise, and it’s apparent that jealousy took over common sense for you. SMH! Where do you live? Maybe in the Valley?? Probably another state altogether! Obviously, because you know nothing of the Hills in California! Have a seat, little one.
