Actor, comedian and producer Allen Covert has been in buy-and-sell mode as of late, divesting himself of a home in Tarzana and picking up one nearly twice the size in a guard-gated Calabasas community for $2.17 million.

His new home, formerly owned by Filipino entertainer Sharon Cuneta, is a Traditional-style home of about 6,600 square feet. Designed for intimate and large-scale entertaining, the house opens to a two-story foyer with a spiral staircase and a circular coved ceiling. Grand living and dining rooms sit off the foyer.

A chef’s kitchen boasts a granite-topped island, a breakfast bar and a walk-in pantry. A family room has one of three fireplaces as well as a wet bar. A total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms includes a master suite with his and hers bathrooms, a pair of walk-in closets, a gym and a sitting room.


Outdoors, landscaped grounds offer a serene setting with a swimming pool and spa with a bubbling waterfall feature. A trellis-topped patio and a built-in barbecue sit elsewhere on the property.

Stephanie Vitacco of Keller Williams listed the home on behalf of Cuneta. Dana Frank of Rodeo Realty represented Covert.

As for his old home, Covert sold a stately Cape Cod-inspired Traditional in the flats of Tarzana for $1.649 million. Done up in shingles and white trim, the nearly 4,000-square-foot home has a graceful entry, an open living/dining room with vaulted ceilings, an eat-in kitchen, six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

A row of French doors off the living room area open to a patio and a circular swimming pool. Lawns, fruit trees and a play area complete the hedged setting.

Covert bought the house six years ago for $1.46 million.

Frank was the listing agent. Andrew Manning of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices repped the buyer.


Covert, 51, has appeared in such films as “Happy Gilmore” (1996), “Anger Management” (2003) and “Grandma’s Boy” (2006). More recently, he was a producer for the 2015 comedies “Pixels” and “The Ridiculous 6.”
