Actress Kirstie Alley unloads Los Feliz Villa for $7.8 million

By Jack Flemming

“Cheers” star Kirstie Alley finally has something to celebrate in Los Feliz, where she sold her Italianate villa of two decades for $7.8 million.

The deal wraps up a years-long effort for the actress of “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and “Veronica’s Closet” fame. Records show she first sought about $12 million for the property in 2018 and trimmed the price three more times over the years before finding a buyer.

Even a few million down from her original goal, she’s still walking away with a profit of nearly $5 million after paying $3 million for the home in 2000.

Juan Longfellow and Louise Leach of Deasy Penner Podley held the listing. Daria Greenbaum of Compass represented the buyer.
