Valerie Bertinelli Asks $2.54 Million for Her Lovely Los Angeles Home
Food Network star Valerie Bertinelli has served up her delicious digs, according to the website Dirt. Her Los Angeles abode is now on the market for $2,549,000. For today’s blog, exclusive to our TTP members, we will be talking more about the food network star, Valerie Bertinelli, and her lovely Los Angeles home. Now without further adieu, let’s get into the blog.
Considering how short a time she has had, Valerie Bertinelli has found interest in one of her homes in the L.A. area. She is a television veteran and has been on Food Network several times. The house, which is perched high in the Hollywood hills and is situated on Mulholland Drive, has been updated extensively with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and more than 2,500 square feet. The home is now up for sale at a profitable amount above the $1.92 million she originally paid for it. Chiefly remembered for her breakout role on the 1970s and ’80s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” which earned her a couple of Golden Globes, Bertinelli has since appeared in dozens of television shows and TV movies, including “Touched by an Angel” and, most recently, the early 2010s sitcom “Hot in Cleveland.”
Passionate about food, since 2015 she’s hosted a couple of Food Network cooking shows and recently closed a new deal to continue creating content for the Discovery-owned network. According to Bertinelli, the decision to sell her home in the Hollywood Hills may or may not have a connection to her recently filing for divorce from her second husband, financial planner Tom Vitale. While their divorce proceedings are underway, Bertinelli’s first husband was late and legendary rocker Eddie Van Halen; they share an adult son Wolfgang.
The home is an endearing single-family mansion that has a stunning panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley and was constructed in 1962. It also offers one of a kind views of the great sprawl and sits on a quarter acre lot. The heart of the home is the great room, which has ash brown flooring, walls with beamed ceilings, and a three sided fireplace. With glass sliders that provide access to the backyard from inside, this home is full of character. The kitchen comes with all new appliances and trendy black-and-white patterned tiles. The pantry is separated from the cooking area. The center of the floor is made of snow-white quartz while the cabinets are dark blue and the shelving is made from rustic wood planks.
Valerie Bertinelli has had two Daytime Emmys, of which she received in 2019, as well as 4 additional nominations. The property boasts Valerie’s Food Network show “Valerie’s Home Cooking”, and the open-concept kitchen in the listing is featured on that show. Fans of Valerie’s Home Cooking will recognize the kitchen. It has been featured in Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of the show. The appliances are stainless steel, the counters are quartz, and there is a full-size fridge. There is also a large island with bar seating to host friends while cooking up a feast. Bedrooms are average in size and the guest bathroom is contemporary. The primary suite has a walk-in closet custom fit for an ebony-tiled bathroom, where retractable windows open it to the backyard.

A bestselling author of several books and cookbooks, who maintains an Instagram account dedicated to her cats and frequently uses her own Instagram to both inspire others and talk candidly and emotionally about her own struggles with weight and body issues, Bertinelli has long made her primary home in Malibu, where she has owned the same traditional home set on a high bluff above scenic Lechuza Beach since she and Van Halen bought it way back in 1984. This specific property is worth many times more than what they paid for it. Records also show that she has long owned a contemporary home in the hills above Studio City. She acquired this home not long after she and Van Halen split up.
