SELLERS: Andrea Savage and Jeremy Plager
LOCATION: Sherman Oaks, CA
SIZE: 5,890 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A Sherman Oaks residence owned per property records by comedy actress and writer Andrea Savage and CAA super-agent Jeremy Plager has come up for sale with an asking price of $3.199 million. The very funny and arguably under-rated “The Hotwives of Las Vegas” star, who additionally holds down a recurring role as a bisexual television executive in the Matt LeBlanc starring sitcom “Episodes,” and Mister Plager, whose roster of big-name clients include Gerard Butler, Dakota Fanning and Sally Field, acquired the property in May 2010 for $2.415 million.
Set behind towering row of privet hedges and electronic drive gates on a mostly flat and nicely elevated .47-acre parcel, the two-story Mediterranean mansion has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in 5,890-square-feet. Just inside the front door a formal dining room has built-in corner china cabinets and, at the end of long and slender entrance gallery, a roomy step-down living room includes hardwood floors, a television surmounted fireplace, and a long wall of French doors that open to an arched loggia. The adjacent kitchen, which has a huge center island with integrated wine rack and a spacious informal dining area, has a combination of olive-green ceramic tile and taupe granite counter tops while a separate den/family room accented with bordello-esque blood-red brocade wall-paper and furnished with a deluxe 8-seat poker table has a extra-high ceilings, a fireplace, and transom-topped glass doors to a foliage privatized terrace with built-in fire pit. The upstairs master suite features another fireplace, this one set into a carved stone mantelpiece, along with a slender balcony with over-the-tree-tops view over the San Fernando Valley. Just off the arched loggia that runs along the rear of the house there’s a built-in grilling station, a wee patch of grass, a couple of raised bed herb gardens, and a swimming pool.
Our research indicates Miz Savage and Mister Plager additionally own a snazzily refurbished but substantially smaller 2,917-square-foot ranch-style house in the celeb-saturated Outpost Estates neighborhood above Hollywood that they purchased just a few months ago for $2.63 million and they also own two modest tract houses in a massive guard-gated enclave in Palm Desert, CA, that were acquired in two separate transactions, one in January 2013 for $212,000 and the other May 2014 for $187,000.
