Jennette McCurdy may play a teenage prankster on Nickelodeon’s “Sam & Cat,” but when it comes to real estate, she’s not messing around. Property records show the 21-year-old actress and singer recently bought a Studio City home for $905,000.
Built in 1987, the 3-bedroom, 3-bath home has been remodeled with contemporary finishes, stainless steel appliances and custom fixtures. The hillside abode also comes with private decks, patios and a hot tub — ideal for enjoying the outdoors without inviting attention from the paparazzi.
This is the first time McCurdy’s name has appeared on Los Angeles County property records, but it’s not surprising that the youngster is already buying her first home. Several celebrities under 25 have become homeowners, from Miley Cyrus — who bought her first home at age 17 — to Taylor Swift and her recent Cape Cod flip.
To preserve their privacy, some Hollywood stars such as singer Leona Lewis buy under family members’ names. “Glee” star Naya Rivera had the help of her real estate agent mom to flip her Beverly Hills house. McCurdy, however, closed the deal on her own, listing herself as the owner on the deed.
The “Zoey 101″ and “Malcolm in the Middle” actress is familiar with California real estate; she was born in Long Beach and raised in Garden Grove. She’s had ample time to save up, launching her acting career at age 8 on MADtv.
McCurdy is most-known for her recurring role on Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” and its current spinoff series, “Sam & Cat.” She’s also a pop-country singer, with “So Close” and “Generation Love” listed as her top songs on iTunes.
