The comedian David Spade doesn’t joke around when it comes to real estate. After reportedly moving to a $13.85 million mansion in Hollywood Hills, the “Saturday Night Live” alum has placed his Beverly Hills pad on the market, the Wall Street Journal reported. He’s asking $19,995,000.
If the star of “Joe Dirt” gets close to his asking price, he’ll walk away with a sizable profit on his longtime abode. Spade purchased the property in 2001 for about $4 million.
Over the past two decades, he has funneled funds into jazzing up the place. He told the WSJ that he had switched out the red-tile roof, put in a new kitchen, added two master bathrooms, and expanded the TV room with a bar.
Now, a new owner can enjoy the posh place just as it is. Built in 1978 by the architect Edward Fickett, the layout offers a sleek, gray-and-white palette, gray flooring, four bedrooms, and 6.5 bathrooms, across 6,426 square feet.
The design incorporates floor-to-ceiling windows that take in city and ocean views. A versatile floor plan features a formal living room, an indoor living tree, and an elevated dining room. The renovated, eat-in kitchen includes a breakfast bar, and a welcoming sitting room comes with a double-sided fireplace.
Upstairs, the primary suite has a loft area, walk-in closets, and a terrace.
Set on nearly an acre, the flat, grassy grounds include a tennis court, patio, and pool.
Last year, Spade upgraded to a newly built mansion. The contemporary he purchased features a whopping 11,300 square feet, six bedrooms, and 11 bathrooms.
Highlights include a library, office, gym, bar and lounge, a 12-seat theater, plus a 1,200-bottle wine cellar. The almost half-acre grounds include a pool and spa, lawn, and seating with a fireplace.
Spade, 57, has starred in the movies “Tommy Boy” and “The Wrong Missy,” as well as the long-running sitcoms “Just Shoot Me” and “Rules of Engagement.” He and his fellow “SNL” alum Dana Carvey just launched the podcast “Fly on the Wall.”
