Comedian and late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel has placed his Los Angeles bachelor pad on the market. Jimmy lived in the house until 2009, reportedly with comedian Sarah Silverman, his on-and-off girlfriend for years, during some of that time.
The comedian bought the house in 2002 for $925,000, public records show, and had been leasing it out the last few years. However, now it can be yours, as Jimmy just put it on the market for $2.3 million.
Built in the mid-1940s, the two-story Hollywood Regency-style house has a number of its original details, such as a wrought-iron banister and leaded-glass windows.
But the party-friendly features he installed — which prompted fellow funnyman Adam Carolla, his buddy, to say in 2005 that Kimmel had done up his house like a backward billionaire with no family — are still prominent.
“It’s quite a home,” Kimmel acknowledged modestly to Carolla. It has:
• Somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 televisions (18 when he counted in 2005), including a wall of TVs outside the kitchen.
• A rotating refrigerated dessert case — when friends visited, they’d “want to go for rides in the pie-go-round,” Carolla said.
• A mechanized dining table that lowers to become a coffee table.
• An outdoor beer tap.
• Outdoor cooking facilities — pizza oven, smoker, a huge barbecue that Kimmel professed was big enough “to cook six babies.”
• The “Recycl-A-Rolla” chute for empty beer bottles and such, which Carolla put in for him.
• A recording studio.
