Hot Property: Scott Baio sells longtime Encino home


Actor Scott Baio has sold his Encino home for $2.5 million.

The gated single-story contemporary, built in 1964, has floor-to-ceiling windows, three fireplaces, four bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms in 4,400 square feet of living space. The grounds include a gazebo with a home theater, a koi pond, a swimming pool with a hot tub and a lighted tennis court on more than an acre.

Baio, 50, rose to fame in the role of Chachi on the sitcoms “Happy Days” (1977-84) and “Joanie Loves Chachi” (1982-83). He starred in “Charles in Charge” (1984-90) and was the subject of the VH1 show “Scott Baio is 45 … and Single” (2007).

The onetime teen idol had listed the property at $2,895,000 in March. Public records show the house has been in the Baio family since 1994, when it was purchased for $1,385,000.


Karen Crystal and Nicki LaPorta of Ewing & Associates, Sotheby’s International Realty, Agoura, had the listing. Keith Fisher of Prudential California, Sherman Oaks, represented the buyer.
