Drake Bell of Nickelodeon’s ‘Drake and Josh’ Lists Home, Faces Foreclosure
UPDATE 8/12/2013: According to property records, the status on Drake Bell’s home has officially changed to foreclosed.
Television actor Drake Bell, who found fame among the teeny-bopper set with his role on Nickelodeon’s “Drake and Josh,” has listed his vintage-esque home in Los Angeles as a short sale for $1.4 million. According to the listing, the home is not only priced below what Bell paid in 2007, but the property is also in the midst of the foreclosure process, with an auction just around the corner.
After some bit roles on Nickelodeon, Bell landed the leading role on “Drake and Josh,” which followed two boys becoming stepbrothers. The show ran from 2004 through 2007 and picked up a few Kids’ Choice Awards. Bell bought his home in 2007 for $2.050 million and, according to property records, was issued a notice of default in 2012, with $85,238 in past payments due on the original loan.
The home, located at 3356 Ley Dr, Los Angeles CA 90027, was built in 1929. Measuring 2,640 square feet, the home has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and original detailing, including a rotunda entrance and coved ceilings.
Bell has pursued a career in music, as well as voiced Peter Parker on an animated Spider-Man series. He’s also a part of ABC’s reality show “Splash,” which pits stars in diving competitions.
