Impressionist Frank Caliendo lists Studio City home with comedy past

Comic Frank Caliendo lists Studio City home once owned by Bud Abbott

Comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo has put a home in Studio City on the market for $1.495 million.

Built in the late 1930s, the two-story home was once owned by Bud Abbott, the actor and comedian known as half of the comedy duo Abbott and Costello.

Drawing inspiration from English Country design, the house is distinguished by leaded glass bay and picture windows, dormers and a tall brick chimney.

Interiors with hardwood floors and wainscoting include formal living and dining rooms, a dual-island kitchen and a family room with a wet bar. The master suite has a large walk-in closet for a total of five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 3,662 square feet.

Outside, grounds of about a quarter of an acre include a swimming pool with a raised spa, a large patio area and a built-in barbecue.

The home previously sold in 2003 for $1.123 million, records show.

Josh Flagg of Rodeo Realty holds the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Caliendo, 41, is known for his celebrity impressions, particularly sports and political figures, and was a semi-regular guest on "Fox NFL Sunday" for more than a decade. He also appeared on "MADtv" as a regular cast member from 2001-2006 as well as his own show "Frank TV," which aired for two seasons on TBS.
