Now that David Spade is kicking it at his sexy new $14 million Hollywood Hills digs high above the Sunset Strip, it seems the veteran comedian/actor, 57, has no need for his longtime home in the posh Beverly Hills enclave of Trousdale Estates. As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, the recent “Bachelor in Paradise” guest host has decided to hoist the estate onto the market, asking a whopping $16 million premium over what he paid for the place some two decades ago.
Originally built in 1978 and designed by modernist architect Edward Fickett, Spade’s Beverly Hills mansion was previously occupied by Prince, Eddie Murphy and Warren Beatty; he purchased the property back in 2001 for $4 million and has extensively updated it since then. Nestled on roughly three-quarters of an acre behind gates, the metal parapet-roof structure offers four bedrooms and seven baths in just over 6,400 square feet, plus glitzy amenities like an entertainment lounge sporting a bespoke bar. Floor-to-ceiling walls of glass overlook sweeping ocean and city lights views.
The double front door opens into a chandeliered foyer, which steps down past a massive indoor “living” tree into a sunken great room accented by a fireplace and glass siders spilling out to an expansive patio ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. Other main-level highlights include a formal dining room, plus an updated gourmet kitchen outfitted with stone countertops, an eat-in island, high-end stainless appliances and an adjacent breakfast nook.
Upstairs, the sumptuous master retreat comes equipped with a loft, fireplace, sitting area and terrace, along with dual walk-in closets and spa-inspired baths; outdoors, the inviting backyard holds a large rectangular pool, fire-pit and full-size tennis court. There’s also a three-car garage and expansive motorcourt for additional parking.
In addition to his Hollywood Hills and Trousdale Estates properties, Spade also owns a $2.3 million Spanish bungalow in the Beverly Grove area of West Hollywood. Stuart Vetterick of Hilton & Hyland serves as the listing agent for the Beverly Hills house.
