A sprawling estate that was once home to TV game-show hostess Vanna White in Los Angeles’s gated community of Beverly Park hit the market Tuesday for $47.5 million.
Ms. White, 60, who is best known for turning letters on game show “Wheel of Fortune” for 35 years, owned and lived in the mansion on Beverly Park Lane until 2002, when she and George Santo Pietro got divorced.
Ms. White couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
They purchased a five-acre vacant lot using a trust, property records show, for an unknown amount in the early 1990s around the time they got married and had a two-story Italianate mansion built on it.
The home has 14,554 square feet of interior living space spread over eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a gym with a mini spa, a basement for entertaining with a wine cellar, according to the listing with The Agency.
The home features vaulted ceilings, arched windows, floor-to-ceiling French doors, a set of ironclad staircases and other fine design details.
Outdoors, there is a private pool, a garage and a vineyard that produces its own wine, according to the listing.
Listing agents led by Mauricio Umansky, CEO of The Agency, didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.

Mr. Pietro, a restaurateur, film executive and real estate developer, kept the home after the couple split . For the past couple of years, he has been renting it out for $150,000 to $175,000 a month, according to Multiple Listing Service.
Mr. Pietro, 70, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. He also developed another mansion on an adjacent lot, which he once put on the market for $50 million but sold for $22.6 million in 2010, public records show.
Beverly Park, an exclusive gated community with 80 large homes (the homes are required to be at least 5,000 square feet) has a slew of celebrity residents, according to The Wall Street Journal, including Barry Bonds, Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington, Sumner Redstone and Sylvester Stallone.
