Katherine Heigl Selling Starter Home

Okay children, Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter have finally winged our way back home. We're jet lagged and a wee bit hung over from one too many complimentary gin and tonics on the plane, but we're gonna do the best we can on limited brain resources today starting with some old news.

SELLER: Kathering Heigl
LOCATION: Parva Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $1,750,000 (list)
SIZE: 2,369 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: Celebrity owned redone contemporary w/ open floor plan. Stunning walls of glass to view city from downtown to ocean. Professionally designed dream kitchen w/ SubZero, center island, and granite counter tops. Large master w/ French doors to city view balcony. Sensational master bath w/ huge stone steam shower. Many upgrades such as hardwood floors, dual zone a/c, recessed lights. Entertainers yard w/ room for pool.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: According to the dee-voon Miz Ann Brenoff at the Los Angeles Times, getting a little big for her britches boob-toober turned film star Katherine Heigl (27 Dresses, Knocked Up) has listed her "starter house" on twisty turny Parva Avenue in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood. Property records show the cancer stick luving Grey's Anatomy actress purchased the 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom house in April of 2006 when she forked over $1,500,000 for the the frustration and annoyance of trying to squeeze her giant red Range Rover Sport into that standard sized garage.

Your Mama's bejeweled abacus tells us that with the current asking price of $1,750,000 Miss Heigl will barely make any money on this property, but given that she's currently one of the most in demand actresses in Hollywood, that's probably not a major concern of hers.

The 2,369 square foot house has clearly been staged to within an inch of livability so we won't bother to comment on the oh so common orchids, the sad artwork or the banal and exuberantly beige day-core. Listing information shows that the house includes an open floor plan, all wood floors (that parquet shit makes Your Mama woozy), long and impressive views over the city that worships at Miss Heigl's well shod feet, a master bedroom with a view balcony and steam shower (perfect for releasing all the tobacco toxins), and a kitchen that has been done over by a real live kitchen design professional and features granite counter tops and top grade appliances.

This modestly sized quasi-Mediterranean crib was a reasonable real estate purchase at the time considering Miss Heigl had yet to become the belle of the Hollywood ball when she snapped this place up. However, as soon as the recently married Miss Heigl hit it big on the big screen, she went house hunting again. Property records show that in September of 2007, flush with movie money and in possession of a newly won Emmy for her role on Grey's Anatomy, Miss Heigl plunked down $2,550,000 for a 3,960 square foot house with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms that sits less than a mile from the Parva Street property she has on the market.

Your Mama imagines that as Miss Heigl's star rises so will the price of her real estate. The young ladee clearly likes living in Los Feliz, but if we had to predict, we'd look for her next move to be to a proper estate with a long, gated celebrity style driveway and more terlits than there are days in the week. In the meantime, Your Mama wishes Miss Heigl a happy home and a little more tact in dealing with her bosses at ABC.
