Celebrity Homes of the Week: Kathy Griffin, Kevin Nealon, and Trey Parker
It’s been a scorcher of a week in celebrity real estate news, but don’t worry because we have you covered. Take a peek into the lives of your favourite celebrity homes, and check out what you missed out.
- Kathy Griffin’s L.A. retreat (4 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, 13,377 sq. ft.)– US$10.5 million
Located in Bel Air, this beautiful piece of real estate is situated right next door to none other than Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Tucked behind guarded gates, it includes a gourmet chef’s kitchen, large swimming pool, billiards room, wine cellar, home theatre, and a car gallery!

- Kevin Nealon’s traditional-style home (7 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 6,857 sq. ft.) – US$5.3 million
This Saturday Night Live veteran is selling his Pacific Palisades property so he and his family can upgrade to something bigger. This classic, Georgian-style home comes with double- and triple-crown moldings, a chef’s kitchen, built-in audio system, solid oak floors, and high ceilings.
- Trey Parker’s Venetian oasis (4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 3,300 sq ft) – US$4.3 million
The South Park co-creator sold his Venice, Calif. home close to US$300,000 over asking after just three weeks on the market! Considering it boasts a game room with a wet bar, two fireplaces, a state-of-the-art screening room, and a rooftop terrace with unobstructed views, we can’t say we’re surprised this property went quickly.
- Taraji P. Henson’s Hollywood Hills home (5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4,202 sq. ft.) – US$2 million
This Moroccan-style home features a small theatre, gym, and outdoor fire pit. But what makes this gorgeous property stand out is the grand dressing room complete with a salon chair and vanity mirror. If you don’t think you can afford this Empire star’s home, you can also rent it for a mere US$12,000 a month.
- Kevin Jonas’s New Jersey mansion (5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 7,390 sq. ft.) – US$2.35 million
Sitting on 2.5 acres of land, and built by Kevin Jonas himself (with some help, we assume), this Hamptons-style home boasts a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, cigar lounge, saltwater pool, putting green, and stunning views of the secluded property.
The bottom line
These homes maybe pretty to look at, but a bit too expensive for us regular folks. If you’re looking for real estate that is a bit more in your price range, make sure you check out what the best mortgage rates are, or check out these mortgage calculators to get your home search started.
