Mary Lynn Rajskub Picks Up Encino Ranch House

BUYER: Mary Lynn Rajskub
LOCATION: Encino, Calif.
PRICE: $710,000
SIZE: 1,427 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: We first heard it from the Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, but property records confirm comedienne and actress Mary Lynn Rajskub has picked up a modest, modernized ranch house in Encino, Calif., for $710,000.

In case any of the children don’t know, genuinely funny and a little bit foul-mouthed Miz Rajskub has bounced around Tinseltown since the mid-1990s, when she popped up on “The Larry Sanders Show.” Some of her more recent recurring boob-tube roles have been on “24,” “2 Broke Girls” and “Californication,” and she’s also appeared in smaller, less comical roles on the bigscreen in a healthy number of critically approved indie films like “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Mysterious Skin” and “Punch-Drunk Love.”

As far as this property gossip can surmise from a thorough perusal of the internets, the humble-by-Hollywood standards house was not listed on the open market. However, back in 2009, when it was previously sold for a hair less than $630,000, the circa 1955, single-story residence had four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,427 square feet of remodeled interior space with sky lights, wood floors and an open concept main living/dining/kitchen that opened to a shaded concrete terrace with direct and up-close view of a swimming pool and detached two car garage.

Our research reveals this is not the first home the guitar-playing jokester, who is married to a personal trainer, has owned in Los Angeles. For a couple years in the early 2000s she owned a small house near Silver Lake’s hipster-thronged Sunset Junction and in the middle 2000s she owned a wee 1920s bungalow just off boutique- and eatery-lined Abbott Kinney in Venice — also, incidentally, sardined with artisanal toast loving types — that she gave a modern-minded makeover and sold in 2008 for $1.2 million. More recently she owned a gated mini-estate with a 6,200 square foot ranch house, swimming pool and tennis court in Woodland Hills she bought for $2 million in 2005 — well before the real estate markets tanked — and sold according to property records at a bank account brutalizing loss in the fall of 2011 — well after the market fell through the floor — for just $1,150,000.
