Ray Romano Snags Venice Ranch House (EXCLUSIVE)

Although it seems unlikely it was purchased for his own use, property records suggest sitcom superstar Ray Romano paid $2.1 million for a renovated ranch-style residence in the tremendously trendy community of Venice. The unassuming single-story residence, which shares a driveway with the almost identical house next door and is described in marketing materials as a “Modern Farmhouse,” has three bedrooms plus a den and two and a half bathrooms in not quite 1,900 square feet.

The front door abruptly opens directly into an expansive, loft-like if somewhat low-ceilinged combination living-dining room with wide-plank wood floors and cozy shiplap-clad accent walls. The kitchen, completely open to the living and dining area, has solid-surface countertops, a vaguely nautical mix of navy blue and white cabinetry and a large center island with an integrated snack bar. French doors in the master bedroom lead out to a sun-splashed deck that steps down to a flat and grassy yard, and a laundry room off the kitchen links through to a side-facing two-car garage at the front of the house.

The buyer was represented in the transaction by Susan Roth from Teles Properties/Douglas Elliman.

The “Everybody Loves Raymond” star, who can boast three Emmys and appeared this year on the silver screen in the romantic comedy “The Big Sick,” has owned a nearly 10,000-plus-square-foot Mediterranean villa on more than 1.25 landscaped acres in Encino’s affluent Encino Oaks neighborhood since the 1990s, and in early 2004 he shelled out nearly $8.5 million for an oceanfront residence with two guesthouses on Malibu’s Broad Beach.
