Giada de Laurentiis came into the limelight years ago for her talent as a chef and for her infectious charisma. She became the face of Italian-American cuisine on the Food Network and is estimated to have a net worth of around $30 million. With all that cash, it’s surprising Giada chose to downsize her Los Angeles home. She sold her former Pacific Palisades house for $7 million, moving to a $5 million bungalow in the same neighborhood. Though the houses are close to each other, they have strikingly distinct features. Read on to take a peek inside both homes.
The Place She Now Calls Home
This long, illuminated expanse is the face of Giada’s most recent Pacific Palisades home. The home features 5 bedrooms and 5 and a half bathrooms, meaning that every guest gets their own personal washroom.
The 3,610 square feet of the home is embellished by its single-floor layout. A large driveway leads to a two-car garage and a grassy front yard. Surrounding trees offer plenty of privacy without inhibiting the view of the magnificent California sunsets.
