Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and former partner Karl Cook have sold their California mansion for $US16.2 million
The couple bought the all-new property for almost US$12 million in 2020, Dirt reports.
The pair completed finishing touches and moved in as pandemic stay-at-home orders took hold but split up last year.
The 1022sq m property is in Hidden Hills, a gated community in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles. The area is home to numerous celebrities.
The home is set on a 6200sq m property and features six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
It is built in modern farmhouse style with a cream and charcoal external paint scheme.
A huge main bedroom includes a fireplace, sitting area and built-in bookshelves, and the skylit kitchen is outfitted with premium stainless appliances.
The family room opens to a backyard with large concrete patio around a pool and spa and adjoining cabana.
The property includes a guesthouse and large lawn area that could be converted to a riding ring for horse-loving owners.
Cuoco and Cook – the son of tech billionaire Scott Cook – are veteran equestrians but did not stable their horses at the shared property.
Cuoco still owns a 16ha horse ranch in nearby Ventura County. Cook is an accomplished show jumper and owns the sprawling Pomponio Ranch near San Diego.
Records indicate the buyer of the Hidden Hills property is a commercial real estate mogul who previously owned two other homes in the area.
The community is ideally situated near Ventura Freeway, the Red Rock Canyon Park and Mullholland Drive, the long-time home to Jack Nicholson and setting for director David Lynch’s classic film of that name.
Cuoco and Cook married in 2018 but did not live together until moving to the Hidden Hills property. Cuoco joked at the time they were forced to quarantine together but “realised we like each other”.
Cuoco shot to fame in the prime-time TV smash, which premiered in 2007.
She played Penny, an aspiring actor who lives across the hall from two physicists. The success of the comedy gave her the freedom to enjoy her passion for animals.
In the past three seasons of the series, the co-stars earned US$1 million per episode.
