Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Goes Inside Ricki Lake’s $8.75 Million L.A. Mansion

Talk about a conversation starter!

Well, all that talking has brought Ricki Lake some serious success in the ca$h department and the proof is in her seriously luxe L.A. digs.

The former talk show host just listed her Brentwood neighborhood home for an astounding $8.75 million. The jaw-dropping 35,284 square-foot (yeah, that’s HUGE!) tropical hideaway is more like a mini-palace than a mere mansion. But despite its decadence, the Hairspray star is packing her stuff and moving out.

The gated estate is fully loaded with uber-fancy features inside and out. With 6 bedrooms and 6 baths all decked out in dark woods and purple and blue-themed interior decor with crystal-dripping geometric chandeliers, who knew Lake had such an eye for design.

So what other features are the serious show-stoppers, you ask?

The master bedroom AND bathroom both have their own fireplace (because it gets darn cold in L.A. — And who doesn’t want to sit by a roaring fire while soaking it up in the bath tub?)

The soaring wood beamed ceilings, multiple French doors, and large skylights bring the stunning outdoor feel into the home.

The enchanting backyard boasts some lush landscaping, from the exquisite Moraccan-themed pavilion complete with vibrant colors, eclectic prints, and bright lighting as well as a covered porch, saltwater pool and spa — all perfect for fabulous entertaining.

And it’s got some Hollywood history to boot! Lake bought the pad from former Friends star Courteney Cox.

Let Ryan take you on a special tour inside Ricki Lake’s stunning abode in the Realty Byte video above.
