Jaina Lee Ortiz is on fire! Not only has she graduated from a sizzling salsa dancer to a successful actress — currently starring as second-generation firefighter Andy Herrera on the long-running ABC drama “Station 19” — but she’s also a brand-new homeowner. Records show the California-born, Bronx-raised 35-year old — who’s also appeared in “The After,” “Shooter” and “Rosewood” — just doled out nearly $3.4 million for a five-bedroom, six-bath property in the San Fernando Valley’s sought-after Sherman Oaks neighborhood.
Built in 2006 and entirely transformed in 2021, Ortiz’s newly acquired home was originally a Mediterranean-style McMansion but is now a far more desirable, and trendy, modern farmhouse-style abode. Resting on a nearly quarter-acre parcel of land, and protected by a 10-camera security system, the multi-tone, wood-sided structure features almost 4,000 square feet of living space adorned with rustic hardwood floors throughout, plus eco-friendly features like solar energy and an EV charging station in the attached two-car garage.
A walkway leads past the driveway and a manicured front lawn before emptying out at the portico-topped front door. Once inside, a formal living room boasts a linear fireplace flanked by floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and pocketing glass doors opening to a patio ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. Adjacent to the living room is a sleekly designed gourmet kitchen outfitted with custom cabinetry, high-end appliances, a walk-in pantry and spacious eat-in island that seats five. There’s also a wine display, plus a dining area and family room.
Accessible via a striking floating staircase, the upstairs master suite offers a private balcony and walk-in closet, along with a spa-inspired bath equipped with dual vanities, a dressing area, freestanding soaking tub and large glass-encased shower. Elsewhere in the house are four additional ensuite bedrooms; and the grassy backyard holds a sport court, and a pool and spa flanked by a barbecue area and fire-pit.
