Singer-songwriter, voice-over artist and actress E.G. Daily has listed a Hollywood Hills-area house for sale at $2,499,999.
The six-bedroom, 4 1/2 -bathroom contemporary has 4,342 square feet of living space and was built in 1977.
Daily described the home, which was once her personal residence and more recently has been rented out, as "durable" -- it has concrete floors -- and as "a social house." She opened the kitchen up to the family room so she could cook and keep an eye on her kids.
"I raised my little girls there," she said. "It's a great family house and a great party house."
There are high ceilings, three fireplaces, skylights, tall French door windows, a pool with a spa and interesting angles throughout the house, she said. "Nothing is squared off. Some windows are on a diagonal; the ceiling zigzags."
The family moved a year and a half ago to a nearby property she totally remodeled. It has a "different energy" from the old house, she said, "all white, all Ralph Lauren. I did it exactly the way I wanted it to be."
The view home sits on a double lot with a grassy lawn "the size of a soccer field," she said. Sometimes the family's pet pig can be spied in the park-like yard.
Although her preference is to sell the old house, Daily said she would consider leasing it at $9,700 a month and continuing as a landlord. "Houses are my hobby."
Daily, 47, is perhaps best known as the voice of Tommy Pickles on "Rugrats" (1991-2002) and "All Grown Up" (2003-07). Currently, she has a cameo in the movie "My Sister's Keeper," to be released in June, and performed a song in the movie's soundtrack.
