Amanda Kloots is making a brand new start of it. The former Radio City Rockette, Broadway dancer and fitness influencer, who lost her 41-year-old husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero, to Covid-19 related complications just about a year ago, a harrowing process she documented on Instagram, has a high-profile new gig as a co-host of the Daytime Emmy-winning — and currently mired in controversy — chat-fest “The Talk” and a chic new house in L.A.’s leafy and illustrious Laurel Canyon to call home.
Tax records indicate Kloots’ new cottage was sold for exactly $2 million by veteran branding and marketing exec Todd Hunter, former co-head of creative at CAA turned cannabis entrepreneur and co-founder of Offfield, a non-psychoactive CBD product specifically intended to be used to enhance the experience of exercising. Hunter acquired the property in late 2014 for a tetch over $1.2 million.
Set on an approximately 5,000-square-foot street-to-street lot, the alluring 1937 Colonial Revival Cottage is secreted behind a dense, mile-high hedge interrupted only by a secured gate set into a tall and slender brick archway. Measuring in at a modest-by-celeb-standard 1,900 square feet, the vine-adorned and dormer-roofed residence has just two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a detached single car garage converted to additional living space.
While the exterior remains true to its original and unpretentious design with a sweet front porch and windows that, if not original, still appropriately adhere to the vernacular, the interior spaces have been opened up and stripped down to its more modern-minded and loft-like bare essentials, with lustrous dark-brown wood floors, an open-plan layout and inconspicuous moldings where there are moldings at all.
