‘Entertainment Tonight’ Co-Host Nancy O’Dell Lists Pasadena Estate (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLERS: Nancy O’Dell
LOCATION: Pasadena, CA
PRICE: $7,189,000
SIZE: 8,926 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms plus guesthouse

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Last fall, shortly after veteran entertainment news journalist and longtime “Entertainment Tonight” co-host Nancy O’Dell was identified as the married woman Donald Trump crudely and unsuccessfully tried to make a move on in the now infamous leaked “Access Hollywood” video tape on which he boasts of sexually assaulting women, it was announced she and her husband, tech exec Keith Zubchevich, had separated — the two events were entirely unrelated — so it’s not too much of a surprise their plushly appointed Pasadena, CA, mansion has come up for sale at $7,189,000. Crowned Miss South Carolina in 1987, the former beauty queen purchased the 1931 Wallace Neff-designed Mediterranean mansion in May 2007 for $5.4 million.

Wrought iron gates set into a high wall swing open to a long, stately driveway that streaks across a lush lawn and past the front of the house as it makes its way to a discreet parking area and three-car garage. Listing details, which describe the just shy of one-acre property as “celebrity owned,” indicates there are six en suite bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in 8,926-square feet of opulently outfitted interior space plus an “amazing” detached guesthouse.

Polished Spanish tile floors flow from the somewhat narrow entrance hall into a substantial formal living room with fireplace and an exposed wood ceiling as well as into an ample formal dining room that features a lustrous carved wood ceiling. Less formal but no less generously scaled family quarters include a capacious, double-height family room with wood beams on the ceiling, a carved stone fireplace and a massive arched picture window. The adjoining kitchen, which has a secondary prep area for large holiday meals and catered events, has elaborately carved custom cabinetry, granite counter tops and a double-wide island with integrated snack counter. In addition to several guest rooms and the master suite that’s replete with fireplace and lavish bathroom, the second floor includes a combination office and library with built-in desk space, a hand painted rotunda ceiling in the circular library area and a wrought iron railing that overlooks the family room. Down in the basement there’s a billiards area with wet bar, a media lounge and a wine cellar.

The house wraps itself around three sides of a plaza-sized brick-paved courtyard with colorfully tiled fountain and built-in barbecue area. An arched loggia with outdoor fireplace for al fresco dining and lounging joins the courtyard to a verdant, resort-worthy backyard with palm dotted lawns bordered by carefully manicured gardens, generous sunbathing terraces and an elevated spa that spills over an azure blue tile spillway into an elegantly simple, rectangular swimming pool.
