Alfonso Ribeiro, who last year became the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” has sold his longtime residence in Toluca Lake for $1.45 million.

A white picket fence stretches along the front of the 8,369-square-foot property, which includes a two-story Traditional-style house built in 1941, a two-car detached garage and a swimming pool.

The fresh-looking interiors are adorned with wood floors, recessed lighting and chair rails. A wide central hall opens to a family room, a formal living room and a dining room with a fireplace.

The updated kitchen was featured on an episode of HGTV’s “Kitchen Cousins.” A long cooktop center island, stainless steel appliances, a wine refrigerator and stone countertops are among the features.

Five bedrooms and four bathrooms include a princely master suite complete with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, a step-up soaking tub and an expansive closet. A guest studio has a kitchen and another bathroom bringing the total living space to more than 3,900 square feet.

A putting green, patio space and an above-ground spa complete the grounds.

Ribeiro, 44, gained fame for his roles as Alfonso Spears in the 1980s television show “Silver Spoons” and as Carlton Banks on the 1990s sitcom “The French Prince of Bel-Air.” He replaced Tom Bergeron as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” in 2015.

Public records show that Ribeiro bought the house a dozen years ago for $729,000. He sold because he bought another residence in Granada Hills.

Craig Strong of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent. Bruce McPherson of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
