“Man With a Plan” star Kevin Nealon has splashed out almost $4.4 million for a brand-new residence in a ritzy if arguably somewhat far-flung area of L.A.’s Pacific Palisades. Situated on about one-third of an acre with a Mediterranean exterior and a bright, clean-lined contemporary interior, the just about 5,500 sq. ft. residence has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
A lengthy, oak-floored entrance gallery passes a central courtyard with an outdoor fireplace on its way to a voluminous living room anchored by a tile-accented fireplace under a beamed and vaulted ceiling. Arranged around a large island with integrated snack bar, the huge, gourmet kitchen opens to a generous dining space and family room that spills out to the backyard through full-height French doors. There’s a second family room upstairs along with several guest bedrooms and an ample master suite replete with fireplace, skylight-topped marble bathroom and private balcony. Outside, terra-cotta pavers in the arched loggia that runs along the back of the house give way to a flat, grassy and not especially expansive backyard with a raised spa and a tiled swimming pool.
The former “Saturday Night Live” and “Weeds” actor, who interviews famous folk while hiking on his eponymous YouTube show “Hiking With Kevin,” sold a two-bedroom bay-front condo in Captiva, Fla., a few years ago for $1.1 million. Earlier this year, after more than three years on and off the market, he parted with a seven-bedroom Georgian-inspired residence in Pacific Palisades for nearly $4.9 million.
