Comedian Kathy Griffin Lists Contemporary Mediterranean Mansion in LA
In Bel-Air Crest, an exclusive 24/7 guard-gated community that stars adore, comedian Kathy Griffin’s home has arrived on the market. The self-proclaimed “D-list” celebrity, who has been in her fair share of high-profile controversies, seems to actually live much more like an A-lister. This contemporary Mediterranean owned by Griffin has a show-stopping mix of European charm, California cool sleekness, and complete privacy. With a $15.995 million price tag, the sumptuous spread is anything but a joke.
In addition to the gates that bar access to the entire community, a set of personal, brand-new custom gates stand between an extended driveway and the perils of potential paparazzi. Hedges and tall trees obscure the façade from the road, but once through these barriers an exquisite exterior of plaster and red-tile appears beautifully as if transported from the shores of Greece. The interiors are no less impressive, a clean and airy oasis spanning 13,377 square feet and totaling 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The home’s two stories are also lavishly connected by an elevator.
Bathed in natural light, the home enjoys incredible brightness heightened by its openness and scale. The chef’s kitchen is connected to a great room capped by wood-beamed ceilings. Then, this massive room leads out to the beautiful backyard with a 25,000-gallon infinity pool. Upstairs, the master suite offers mountain views from a 1,100-square-foot private balcony. Privacy and next-level luxury, the two elements all celebrity homes seem to have in common.
Brothers Josh Altman and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
