Anna Nicole Smith’s Home Sells; Proceeds Go to Daughter
Six years after the death of Playboy Playmate and reality-TV star Anna Nicole Smith, her Studio City home has sold.
Smith purchased the home under her given name, Vickie Lynn Marshall, in April 2005 for $1.335 million. Upon her death in 2007, Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn, and the child’s father, Larry Birkhead, moved into the home. Birkhead successfully won a paternity suit and gained custody of Dannielynn in April 2007. Smith’s daughter, although a minor, is a beneficiary of her mother’s estate.
However in April 2011, Howard K. Stern, Smith’s one-time lover and the executor of her will, gained the court’s permission to transfer the home under his name. He immediately placed the home on the market with an asking price of $1.75 million. Stern was cleared of charges in Smith’s accidental death this past November.
A nod to Smith remains in the home: A giant painting of the late model hangs in the entryway. One of the rooms is still decorated for a girl, presumably Dannielynn.
The proceeds of the sale, after taxes and real estate commissions, will go to Dannielynn.
Smith’s former home, located at 3646 Avenida Del Sol, Studio City, CA 91604, measures 4,700 square feet and has 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The Mediterranean-style home is perched above the city with dominant views from its balcony and pool area.
According to NBClosangeles.com, the buyer is “…Rouzbeh Zoka, trustee of the Rouzbeh Zoka 2012 revocable trust. The trust has deposited $39,000 as part of the purchase price.”
