Comedian and Host Chelsea Handler Is Selling Her Bel Air Mansion!
The Host of Chelsea Lately Has Listed Her Los Angeles Home
Comedian, actress, writer, and television host of the E! Network’s late night talk show Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler has just put her Bel Air Mansion on the market for a hair under eleven million dollars. This mid-century modern Bel Air, California estate is just over 5500 square feet, with six bedrooms and seven baths.
Originally built in 1964, the home was recently rebuilt with both incredible quality and high style in mind. The private estate features a fifty-foot swimming pool and large outdoor areas for entertaining. The star of the big and small screen purchased the home in September of 2010 for just under six million dollars and is looking to double her investment after nearly a decade in the home. If you have the money and the desire to follow in Handler’s footsteps, this home can be yours.
What Kind of Interior does Eleven Million Buy You in Bel Air?
To say that the home is 5500 square feet with six beds and seven baths and leave it at that would be to do this home a serious disservice. This modern estate combines the best of Mid-Century architectural influence with the best of contemporary high-end finishes and materials, for a home that feels and looks like it’s worth more than every penny of the eleven million dollar asking price.
Glass walls and airy open spaces that segue subtly from room to room create a wonderful feeling of flow as you move through the home. The home contains the aforementioned five bedrooms, and the master suite includes a closet that has to be seen to be believed, as well as a private spa.
There is an expansive family room that opens onto the outdoor pool, a gorgeous living room, cozy den with a fireplace, and a large professionally equipped kitchen. The home is wired with smart home technology from Crestron. The four additional bedrooms are all en suite, and there are separate maid’s quarters.
The Estate Behind the Walls
In addition to the fifty-foot pool mentioned above, the grounds behind the gated entrance contain numerous expansive patios and decks for entertaining, as well as a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, and an outdoor living space with its own fireplace.
The home is located in an exclusive enclave of Bel Air, and its location is one factor that weighs heavily on the home’s anticipated sale price. The grounds, the home’s architecture, fixtures, and amenities, along with the Bel Air address, warrant the asking price, not to mention the notoriety that comes with a celebrity provenance.
To Be Shown To Discerning Pre-Qualified Buyers Only…
If you want a closer look at Handler’s home, you’ll have to settle for perusing the listing photos on homes.com, because the home is not open to the public for viewing. As the listing indicates, it will only be shown to pre-qualified buyers.
So, unless you have eleven million dollars sitting around or can scrape together 20% ($2.2 million) and qualify for a loan on the balance, you’ll have to be satisfied with this virtual tour of what a big-time television personality’s home has to offer. And if you do have the money, all this and whatever Chelsea leaves behind, can be yours.
