Joey Lawrence Home Gets Big Price-Drop

joey lawrence drop price of homeThe family that purchased the home of actor Joey Lawrence (pictured left with his family) has dropped the price of the 8,100-square-foot Encino, Calif., home 18.75 percent, to $2.599 million, since they first listed it for $3.199 million a year ago, the listing agent Craig Knizek of Prescott Properties, told AOL Real Estate.

Lawrence, the former child star known for his role as Joey Russo on Blossom that followed his run on Gimme a Break!, purchased the Spanish-style 6-bedroom home in 1994 for $1.175 million, when he was 18, reported the Real Estalker, which also misreported that Lawrence still owns the home.

Lawrence tried selling it previously in October 2001 and then re-listed it in October 2002, around the time he married his first wife Michella Vella, whom he divorced in 2005. The current owners purchased it after the 2002 listing, says Knizek, who is also the former producer of Mad About You, and currently producers The Paul Reiser Show.

The San Fernando Valley home features exposed wood-beam ceilings, wood doors and terra Search Homes for Sale See photos of homes for sale in your area and across the country on AOL Real Estate cotta-colored tile floors with blue diamond insets. The blue tile theme repeats throughout the home on fireplaces and sink counters. The living room fireplace is covered in tile up to the ceiling.

The master bath, with a dry sauna, steam shower and step-up jetted tub on blue-tiled stage, has two doors to a large deck. The master also has a corner fireplace with blue tile surround, a wet bar, and dual walk-in closets.

The 1928-built home also has a movie theater, and a workout room with another sauna.

Too many different kinds of wood...dark, light,exotic, the wet bar in master looks out of place. Not to mention the kitchen has stainless,copper, island is dark, and light cabinets. It needs more than blue tile to tie it together.

Beautiful house but who needs something that big with so much space. I guess with all that space you get a good workout by walking from one room to another.

And who needs anything but bread and water to live off of? There's nothing wrong with a little luxury if you can responsibly afford it.
