Joey Lawrence Trims Price on Calabasas Home (EXCLUSIVE)

After he first put it up for sale on the open market three months ago with price tag of not quite $2.25 million, actor and musician Joey Lawrence has dropped the asking price on his Mediterranean home in the affluent and star-studded L.A. suburb of Calabasas to a smidgen under $2.15 million.

The muscle-strapped former child star — who made oodles of kids swoon when he was on the early-1990s sitcom “Blossom” and last year wrapped up a 100-plus episode run as a financier-turned-manny on the popular ABC Family series “Melissa & Joey” — purchased the vaguely Spanish Colonial residence in December 2011 for a tetch more than $1.44 million, according to property records. Current listing details show the two-story house has four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in almost 4,600 square feet.

Polished terracotta tile floors in the unexpectedly oval-shaped foyer extend into a cavernous, step-down living room with a double-height, wood-beamed ceiling, a stone-tile-accented fireplace, and French doors to the backyard. There’s also a good-sized formal dining room and separate family room with a fireplace and a wet bar. The center island kitchen is fitted with custom Shaker-style cabinets, and adjoins a breakfast room with chunky wood beams on the ceiling.

A main-floor bedroom with an en suite bathroom has been decked out as a gym, while upstairs there’s a skylit lounge that opens to a covered patio, two bedrooms that share one bathroom, and a master suite with a fireplace, a vaulted ceiling, two walk-in closets, and a tiled bathroom with two sinks, a glass-enclosed shower, and an exercise area.

The backyard, with a resort-style lighting system, incorporates tropical plantings and thick carpets of manicured lawns, a built-in barbecue station, a trellis-shaded dining terrace, and a dark-bottomed swimming pool and spa backed by a tiled waterfall.
