Reduced! “Newlywed Home” Takes 44 Percent Price Drop

It’s marketed as the “deal of the year” and it sure seems like quite a steal: The Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica home recently took a huge price drop — a 44 percent price drop — and went from a listing price of $3,495,000 last August to $1,950,000 when it was re-listed this past May.

This is the home where Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson were filmed during the “Newlyweds” reality series. According to Zillow’s price history chart, Nick Lachey bought the home in June 2002 for $1,685,000 and after Nick and Jessica split, they sold it in February 2006 for $3.4 million. According to LA Blockshopper, it was sold to “Malcolm in the Middle” star Justin Tyler Berfield (photo, left) through his trusts: Sticky Toffee and Catamaran.

The home has 6,400 sq ft of living space and 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths. And, if you’re feeling a bit insecure, it has a double set of gates: the entry into Calabasas Park Estates is guard-gated and the home has its own set of gates.  The soaring ceilings give this contemporary style home a light and airy feel. Amenities include a restaurant-style wine cellar, Travertine floors, media room, recording studio, and game room. The chef’s kitchen has a huge center island, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and walk-in pantry. The master bedroom suite includes separate retreat, fireplace, huge balcony with view and two walk-in closets. Private backyard includes a pool/spa, and hotel-style lounging areas, plus covered and draped alfresco outdoor dining. See more photos of the Newlywed house.

Pretty sweet!
