Sara Gilbert Goes Modern in Hancock Park (EXCLUSIVE)

An airy contemporary in L.A’s historic Hancock Park ’hood was recently sold for $6.85 million, and ever-reliable real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak swears on her vintage Cadillac Seville that the new owners are “The Talk” co-host Sara Gilbert and 2015 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Linda Perry, who’s penned and/or produced hit ditties for pops stars Pink, Christina Aguilera, and Adam Lambert. Listing details show the freshly expanded and crisply executed triple-story modern farmhouse-style abode was inspired by Napa Valley vineyard architecture, sits on more than one-third of an acre that backs up to the high-toned Wilshire Country Club, and weighs in with six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in just over 6,100 square feet.

The voluminous entry has a beamed and barrel-vaulted ceiling and impressively wide white oak floorboards that continue into an ample living room that’s anchored by an angled white brick fireplace, and spills out through glass sliders to an elevated dining and entertainment deck with tree-framed golf course view. The adjoining dining room sits under an industrial-sized skylight, while the open kitchen is lavishly fitted with slab marble countertops on custom-crafted white oak cabinetry, and incorporates a center work island with five-stool snack counter and a walk-in pantry with a rolling library ladder to access top-shelf items. The master suite has vaulted ceilings and a small private deck, and the extensive lower level offers up a family room with a second fireplace and a dedicated fitness room that opens to a flat, tree-shielded backyard with lounging terrace, firepit, and a swimming pool with inset spa.

Gilbert, a multiple Emmy nominee, previously owned a home in a celeb-saturated Beverly Hills Post Office enclave that she and former partner Allison Adler sold for $3.3 million to Penelope Cruz; and in August of 2012, she shelled out $3.5 million for a glass-walled contemporary just above the Sunset Strip.
