Anthony Anderson is Getting Ready to Sell His Encino Home
It’s been a wild year for Anthony Anderson, who exited Law & Order and his ABC sitcom black-ish in April, and now his estranged wife Alvina is filing for divorce a second time. As if these two life events weren’t hard enough on the actor and his family, it looks like he may be getting ready to sell his Encino home.
After their first divorce in 2015, Alvina reportedly filed for backdated spousal support from Anthony on March 25. The actor has agreed to pay her a predetermined amount, decided by a joint forensic accountant, according to People. However, the 51-year-old hasn’t yet made the payments.
While he’s not sure how long the process will take, Anderson says he’ll do everything in his power to make it as easy on Alvina as possible. He’s even agreed to help her find an apartment while their case is being worked out.
Meanwhile, Anthony hasn’t forgotten about his home in Encino. In fact, he teamed up with Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott to fix up the place.
The home is in an upscale Encino neighborhood, named after Los Encinos State Historic Park, which traces its roots to the area’s Spanish and later Mexican-era ranchos.
It’s a mid-century California ranch house that stretches out over 3,342 square feet. It features six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
There’s also a big yard, which the couple has been attempting to landscape. Jeff Lewis, who’s working on the project, shared a tour of the backyard with Amazon Freevee’s Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis, which premieres Friday, June 10.
As you can see in the footage above, Lewis and his team have put a lot of work into this garden and outdoor space. In the clip, they’re replanting trees and adding hardscaping.
They’ve also repurposed the existing pool and created a new patio. They’re planning to add some decking as well.
This house is just a stone’s throw away from Los Encinos State Historic Park, which was established in 1937 and has a lake that blooms with 2,000 Pink Cloud cherry trees each spring. The park is home to several historic buildings and a small museum.
The home is situated on more than a third of an acre along a semi-circular drive in the upscale, though mostly unheralded Amestoy Estates neighborhood.
He and his wife have two children: Kyra, 26, and Nathan, 22. They also have a dog, Zoey.
In addition to a beautiful backyard, the couple’s home is just a short walk from their daughter’s school. They’re also close to a golf course, tennis courts, and a bike path.
They’re hoping to sell the place for $2.3 million, which should leave both parties with a fair sum of money to start their lives on their own again. It’s likely that Anderson will also have to pay spousal support while the case is in court, although he’s said he’s willing to make a deal for a lower figure.
