Actress Tia Carrere, best known for her roles in "Wayne's World" and "True Lies," has listed her remodeled Topanga Canyon retreat for $2.595 million. Its mountaintop location comes with panoramic views to Santa Catalina Island and beyond.
Carrere purchased the home in 2005 for $1.625 million and has added modern, luxurious conveniences. Hardwood floors, high ceilings, clean lines and spacious modern bathrooms are just a few of the 1980-built home's new features.
The 3,567-square-foot home has four bedroom suites -- two of which are considered master suites - and five bathrooms. The main master bathroom features a steam shower and whirlpool bathtub.
The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining or family living. A chef's kitchen with Fisher & Paykel appliances and an eat-in bar opens into a spacious living room. The kitchen and living room areas lead to expansive patios and outdoor living/entertaining spaces. The indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces are also furnished with surround sound.
Any outdoor and fitness enthusiast will find the grounds exceptional -- the property is complete with a saltwater lap pool, recently resurfaced tennis court and plenty of hiking trails on the nearly 3-acre property. There's also an indoor gym, and, for the kids, a gated AstroTurf playground.
The listing is held by Monica Perkal and Katherine Berlyn of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
