Katey Sagal Downsizes to Bel Air Home

Right on the heels of winning a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series, Katey Sagal sold her Hollywood Hills, Calif., home to downsize to a home in West Bel Air.

Huh? Shouldn't she be movin' on up?

I guess this television vet -- better known for her role as Peg Bundy in Married With Children -- doesn't let a little trophy go to her head. She and husband Kurt Sutter, writer/producer of Sons of Anarchy (the show she stars in and the one for which she won her Golden Globe), bought a 3,844-square-foot, stylized A-frame house with 5 bedrooms and 5 baths for $3.695 million. The home has a chalet-like, wood-beamed interior and sits on 1.5 wooded acres, which sounds pretty nice, but they gave up a peach of a home, too.

Here's what they sold: The 7,202-square-foot Sagal/Sutter home (below) was first put on the market in early 2010 for $4.75 million, and after a series of price drops, finally sold at the end of the year for $3.77 million.

Buyer Rickey Minor, the former music director of American Idol, got one hell of a deal. Sagal and Sutter originally paid $3.71 million for the six bedroom, eight bath home in 2005 and, according to Luxist, put $1 million of improvements into the property, including adding the basketball court.
