Dan Harmon is very, very rich. Exactly how rich? We don’t know, but three years ago he paid $3.6 million for a home in L.A.’s Valley Village, according to the L.A. Times. And Harmon apparently loves his new neighborhood so much that he’s dropped an additional $5.2 million to buy out not one, but two of his neighbors.
Now 49, Harmon first came to public prominence by creating and producing the bygone NBC series “Community,” before partnering with fellow real estate investor Justin Roiland to launch the long-running “Rick and Morty” franchise on Adult Swim. Later this year, the Milwaukee native and lifelong comedian is scheduled to launch “Krapopolis,” a new Fox animated series set in Ancient Greece.
The Valley Village property empire won’t be mistaken for the Parthenon anytime soon, but the compound is also nothing modest. Last summer, Harmon paid $2.5 million for a house just down the block, and now he’s paid another $2.7 million to buy the house directly behind his main residence — a Spanish hacienda-style mansion that spans more than 6,000 square feet. A few years ago, just prior to Harmon’s purchase, that main house was given a contemporary renovation by actress Mimi Rogers.
Altogether, Harmon’s three Valley Village homes total about 12,000 square feet of interior living space with 16 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, and cost him nearly $9 million. His most recent acquisition (below), a midcentury ranch-style structure, was built in 1959 and features a big yard with a swimming pool.
