The 7,020-square-foot home has a chef’s kitchen and six bedrooms, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. Natalie Morales is now the West Coast anchor for “Today” and hosts “Access Hollywood.”
Today” show anchor Natalie Morales has made some news of her own, buying a newly built home in Brentwood for $6.8 million.
Tucked behind privacy gates, the East Coast-inspired house has a traditional yet contemporary vibe with French iron doors, elegant fixtures and light wood floors. Gray-painted brickwork and crisp white siding provide a visual contrast to the exterior.
Within the 7,020 square feet of refined space are a two-story entry, a living room with a fireplace, a blue-hued library/den with built-in bookshelves and a chef’s kitchen with an oversized island. A wine wall set within tempered glass sits off the formal dining room.
Upstairs, the master suite has a fireplace, a boutique-inspired closets and a balcony that overlooks the grounds. There are six bedrooms and 5.25 bathrooms in all.
Bi-folding doors open to a terrace patio with an outdoor fireplace and an al fresco dining area. Lawns, hedges and a rectangular swimming pool and spa complete the roughly quarter-acre setting.
The property came up for sale in June for $6.795 million, records show. It previously changed hands a year ago for $2.7 million.
Myra Nourmand and Lobat Ghodoushim of Nourmand & Associates Beverly Hills were the listing agents. Hugh Evans of Partners Trust represented Morales.
The 44-year-old Morales announced in May that she was moving to L.A. to be the West Coast anchor for the NBC morning show as well as co-host “Access Hollywood” and “Access Hollywood Live.” She also appears as a correspondent on “Dateline NBC” and “NBC Nightly News.”
Her longtime home in Hoboken, N.J., came on the market in June for $3.1 million and is currently pending sale.
