Ray Romano sells Californian home

Ray Romano has sold his Californian home for just over $1 million.

The 'Everybody Loves Raymond' star achieved above the $979,500 asking price for the "modest" property in the gated development of Penfield Estates in Woodland Hills.

The house, which has a sprawling 2,700 square footage and is single-story, features no less than four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The property also boasts hardwood floors, a stunning kitchen as well as a pool and spa. For those who enjoy outdoor dining, there is also a barbecue area and a covered patio.

Meanwhile, the 58-year-old actor previously opened up about being typecast in a certain role because of his longstanding role as Ray Barone in the television sitcom, which ended in 2005.

He shared: "There was no game plan. To be blunt, I didn't have to do anything for money after 'Raymond' - which is what my wife keeps telling me after she sees me in a threesome in 'Vinyl'. One thing I knew was that I didn't want to do a four-camera sitcom. I was proud of what we did on 'Raymond' - that was my legacy - but I wanted to move on.

"Typecasting is just natural when for nine years everybody sees you as that. I'm guilty of that. When we were casting actors [for 'Men of a Certain Age'], when someone's name would come up, I would say, 'He's not right.' It's just ingrained in you."

Apart from his television career, Ray also does standup comedy.

He added: "I play Vegas about seven times a year, at the Mirage. If I'm in New York, I'll always drop into the Comedy Cellar. I still love to get up there. The thrill is coming up with new material. 'Vinyl' was shooting from May to October [last year], so I went on a lot.

"I don't think I'll ever give that up. Some guys do. If I have to be nice to myself and say one thing I'm good at, it's doing standup. Everything else I suck at. Golf I really suck at, even though I love doing it."

Ray also has homes in San Fernando Valley and Malibu.
