Who knew there would come a time when people would become millionaires just by cooking food? But thankfully, we now live in a time when every skill is appreciated and is, to some extent, equitably rewarded.
For Giada De Laurentiis, who is a genius when it comes to making food on the Food Network where she hosts her own show called Giada at Home, money has come in an ample amount due to her extreme popularity among audiences around the world for her brilliant style of cooking.
Naturally, since she is all about home cooking, it only makes sense that Giada would prefer to live in a house that exemplifies the quality of life that she encourages everyone else to live. She already had a gorgeous house, but according to reports, she has now purchased another one by shelling out an impressive $4.86 million to secure a property in the prestigious Pacific Palisades region
A Stunning House
If you have ever been in the Pacific Palisades area, then you probably know that the neighborhood called Riviera is the most exclusive one, and that is exactly where Giada has bought her new house.
Naturally, a celebrity of her stature must take special measures to ensure privacy in her own house, and that is why this house is perfect for her because the main building lies more than a quarter of an acre farther from the entry gate. Tall hedges are also installed around the boundary to keep any unwanted prying eyes away from her personal life.
The house was reportedly constructed back in 1958, and still embodies many features that are symbolic of that time in addition to the modern fittings which have been installed over the years.
For example, the dining room inside the house has a curved architecture which was common back in the mid-century era, with a wall that is made entirely of windows, and both the dining as well as the living areas of the house offer gorgeous outdoorsy views because of these full-wall windows.
In addition to its many sitting spaces, this house also features some of the necessary outdoor spaces such as a swimming pool as well as a patio. But as far as the indoors are concerned, there is more space than most people can utilize, with four spacious bedrooms.
The main bedroom is especially noteworthy as it has its own fireplace, a wall that is made entirely of glass to take full advantage of the vast outdoor space of the house, a large closet, and also a bathroom that comes fully equipped with a tub for soaking purposes.
If Giada wants to entertain guests, then the property also has a lovely guesthouse that is also made of glass, which has its own bedroom as well as a bathroom. But the main attraction is definitely the kitchen, which comes with state-of-the-art appliances, countertops made of stone, and plenty of cabinets to stock up everything that Giada could possibly need to make her signature dishes.
