November 12, 2019 0 By JohnValbyNation

It was a quick sale for “Young and the Restless” actress Melissa Ordway and her husband, singer-songwriter and actor Justin Gaston, who found a buyer for their Lake Balboa home after an about week on the market. The charming single-story sold for $715,000, or about $24,000 less than the asking price, records show.

In the front, a white picket fence and landscaped yard complement the bold blue exterior. Outside, a window-lined sun room opens to a dining patio with a detached garage.

The sunny living spaces feature varying shades of blue on the walls and two tones of hardwood on the floors. There’s a living room with a white-painted brick fireplace, a chandelier-topped dining area and a kitchen with quartz countertops and a subway tile backsplash.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms complete the 1,355-square-foot interior. One of the bedrooms currently functions as a recording studio.

Nathaniel Smith of Compass held the listing. Shannon McNamara of Redfin represented the buyer.

A native of Georgia, Orway starred in “Hollywood Heights” before joining the cast of “The Young and the Restless” as Abby Newman in 2013. Gaston, 31, was a contestant on the reality singing competition series “Nashville Star” and has also appeared on “Days of Our Lives.”
