Sara Gilbert Seeks Tenant for Sunset Strip Contemporary (EXCLUSIVE)

location: Los Angeles, Calif.
price: $19,500 per month
size: 3,319 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms

A sleek, bordering on minimalist contemporary conveniently perched just above a particularly rocking section of L.A.’s Sunset Strip and owned by Sara Gilbert has popped up for rent at $19,500 per month. Gilbert, creator and one of the handful of co-anchors on the mid-morning chat fest “The Talk” and co-star of the original and the short-lived revival of “Roseanne” and, now, it’s Roseanne-less spin-offThe Conners,” purchased the property in 2012 for $3.5 million. Secured behind gates and all but invisible on an elevated lot behind a dense and towering row of foliage, the single-story ranch-style residence dates to the 1950s and measures in at 3,319-square-feet with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
A solid wood door set into a shallow porch just off the two-car carport unceremoniously opens directly into an open-plan living and entertaining space with pale blonde hardwoods, great expanses of white, molding-free walls, 11-foot ceilings and full-height glass panels that slip into the walls for what listing details describe as “perfect indoor-outdoor flow.” There’s a dining alcove as well as a library nook with walnut wood bookshelves and, in the main lounge area, a massive, white brick volume is asymmetrically balanced by a linear, double-sided firebox and cantilevered bench. With smooth, poured concrete countertops atop navy-blue cabinets, the designer applianced kitchen opens over a double wide island with snack bar to a cozily proportioned den/dining space with floor-to-ceiling telescopic glass sliders to the yard. Each of the three guest bedrooms has a private bathroom and the master suite, with an over-the-hedgerow city view through a huge picture window plus another bank of floor-to-ceiling glass sliders to the yard, includes a large closet lined with bespoke walnut wood built-ins and a spa-inspired bathroom with soaking tub and steam shower.
The yard isn’t particularly big but much of it is flat and, due to savvy space planning, manages to accommodate a small covered porch outside the main living area, a slightly larger dining deck off the kitchen, a petite patch of thick lawn, and a tile-accented spa that spills into a plunge-sized swimming pool. Set high on the steep hillside behind the pool, and planted with bamboo, succulents and spikey cacti, is a freestanding, cedar-lined sauna.
Gilbert and wife Linda Perry, former 4 Non Blondes frontwoman and 2015 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee who wrote and produced Christina Aguilera’s 2002 chart-topping power ballad “Beautiful,” some time ago decamped the Sunset Strip for a six-bedroom and 6.5-bathroom, triple-story farmhouse-inspired contemporary in historic and considerably more staid Hancock Park that they scooped up in early 2016 for $6.85 million.

  1. Hi,Ms. SARA GILBERT, I’LL BE YOUR TENENT IF YOUR WILLING I HAVE PERTINENT INCOME I HAVE DISABILITY SOCIAL SECURITY, LOW INCOME, SO IF YOU ARE WILLING TO MOVE ME IN I AM ABLE TO FLY FAST THERE. LOL

  2. Kathleen K. says:

    I’d rather live outside…..it has more personality than the house. maybe that’s why she put it up for rent, very boring abode.

  3. John novak says:

    Sara gilbert really variety is not the place to seek people to rent out a ugly house you bought and do not wish to live yourself

  4. Dan says:

    It’s a beautiful home a lot of square foot. But it’s sad the average California family can’t even afford to buy a home these days. Average cost I pay for my home is around 1800 a month plus impound aka taxes $22,000 a year.And I have a good union job people with money don’t understand. I just hope that people understand that the economy looks good now.We the people need to wake up fight so the wealthy pay their fair share of impounds taxes.

  5. Keep giving it Miss Gilbert how can someone else have any thing to do with your house or houses who cares what they think . I was taught if you don’t have something nice to say keep your trap shut . what is it to any one , that you worked for what you have .I don’t see how it is anyone’s place to bitch about what you buy or rent or where you and yours live. It just kills me . people have something to talk about OMG. Really . God bless you Miss. Gilbert surly it doesn’t bother you what others think about this house or the next . live life to the fullest I wish you and yours the best .And again. God bless.
