Adam Carolla is swapping styles in La Canada Flintridge. A few months after listing his Midcentury spread for sale, the comedian has paid $7.327 million for a contemporary-style house in the area.
Designed by architect Vaughan Trammell and built in 2013, the house sits at the end of a leafy cul-de-sac. Clean lines, offset roof lines and clerestory windows create visual interest from the street. Inside, stone walls and hardwood floors fill some 7,300 square feet of living space.
At the heart of the home, a built-in fireplace warms an indoor-outdoor great room. Picture windows brighten the sky-lit dining room under vaulted ceilings. Other highlights include a step-down living room, a center-island kitchen, a movie theater, a gym and a wine cellar. A dumbwaiter serves all three floors, which hold five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Outside, the nearly one-acre property includes an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa, two fire pits and a grill. There’s also a viewing deck.
In addition to his popular podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show,” the 54-year-old Carolla has appeared on “The Man Show” and “Catch a Contractor.” From 1995 to 2006, he co-hosted the syndicated radio show “Loveline.”
Sports talk radio host Jim Rome and his wife, Janet, have signed off in Indio, selling their Tuscan-inspired home in a resort community for $2.5 million.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom house, built in 2009, sits on a lakefront lot of about two-thirds of an acre. Designed for outdoor entertaining, the home opens through a gated courtyard with patios and a fireplace. Pocketing walls of glass open to a rear patio with a dining area and a barbecue/bar.
A strip of sandy lakefront sits beyond the swimming pool, which has a raised spa. There’s also a private boat dock with a lift.
Inside the single-story house, living spaces evoke Old World ambiance with thick beams, stonework and reclaimed teak wood and pavers imported from Tuscany and France.
Rome, 54, has been a mainstay on radio airwaves since the mid-1990s with “The Jim Rome Show.”
He was one of 24 on-air personalities nominated earlier this year for the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Fashion mogul and film producer Sidney Kimmel is looking to make a move on the opposite coast.
More than a year after listing the former Johnny Carson estate in Malibu, Kimmel and his wife, Caroline, have put their New York City apartment up for sale at $39.5 million.
The roughly 6,800-square-foot residence makes up the entirety of the 27th floor of the Thierry Despont-designed Ritz-Carlton New York residences.
Beyond a bronze entry, the unit opens to a gallery that connects each wing. A central bar area connects the living room, which has an antique fireplace, to the wood-paneled office.
Sidney Kimmel, 90, is the founder of Jones Apparel Group.
