For the first two years of their wedded life, Kaley Cuoco and her second husband Karl Cook famously did not live together. (“We [had] an unconventional marriage,” Cuoco has noted.)
But that situation changed in 2020, when the pair jointly bought an all-new Hidden Hills mansion; they put the finishing touches on the place right as the pandemic began prompting stay-at-home orders. So the “Big Bang Theory” actress and her rancher beau — he’s a son of tech billionaire Scott Cook — ended up being “forced” to quarantine together. Surprise, surprise — the duo “realized we like each other,” Cuoco later laughingly mused.
Unfortunately, that situation didn’t last too long, because the Cuoco-Cooks split up last September. Though their Hidden Hills home never publicly hit the market, records reveal it has unsurprisingly been sold — and for a hefty $16.2 million. That’s a nice profit for the former couple, who acquired the newly built estate two years ago for just under $12 million, though they likely also spent a pretty penny putting their custom touches on the place. The buyer, records indicate, is a non-famous commercial real estate mogul who previously owned at least two other Hidden Hills homes.
Since the property was never on the market, we don’t have much in the way of specific details, but Cuoco’s never been shy about sharing residential photos on her social media accounts. Followers have glimpsed her bedroom, which is huge and offers a fireplace, sitting area and built-in bookshelves; a family room equipped with sliding glass doors opening to the backyard; the foyer, which is dominated by a massive “floating” staircase; the skylit kitchen, outfitted with premium stainless appliances; and her backyard, which includes a vast concrete patio encircling a pool/spa combo and adjoining cabana.
Built in the trendy modern farmhouse style, the mansion spans nearly 11,000 square feet of luxe living space, with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms — per tax records. Outside, the place is doused in a two-tone cream/charcoal paint scheme.
In addition to the patio and pool area, the estate’s (relatively) generous 1.54 acres of land also include a guesthouse and a big grassy lawn that could also be a riding ring, for any horse-oriented future owners. Both Cuoco and Cook themselves are veteran equestrians, though they had no need for horses at home in Hidden Hills — Cuoco still holds title to a 40-acre horse ranch in a particularly peaceful part of Ventura County, while Cook owns the spectacular Pomponio Ranch down in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., where he keeps two dwarf ponies, a pack of fun-loving dogs and 30+ horses.
