Professional ballroom dancer Cheryl Burke of "Dancing With the Stars" has purchased a midcentury modern post-and-beam house in the Hollywood Hills for $1,295,000.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,494-square-foot home, built in 1957, has 180-degree city and mountain views, a stone fireplace, vaulted wood ceilings and a separate studio office. There are two decks for dining, lounging, entertaining or practicing a season-winning samba.
The two-time choreography Emmy nominee partnered with singer Drew Lachey (Season 2) and football player Emmitt Smith (Season 3) to become the ABC reality show's first two-time winner. She and actor Gilles Marini were the Season 8 runners-up in May, losing to gymnast Shawn Johnson, the Olympic gold medalist, and dancer Mark Ballas.
Burke, 25, purchased the house from Jon Shapiro, executive producer of the Daytime Emmy-winning PBS series "Curious George" (2006-present) and producer of "U2 3D" (2007), which followed the Irish rock group's global "Vertigo" tour. Shapiro bought the property in 2007 for $1,539,000, public records show.
