Making money... and moving out! Host Ryan Seacrest decided to put his Beverly Hills, Calif., home on the market — through Westside Estate Agency Inc. — for $85M, since he already spends most of his time filming Live with Kelly and Ryan in the Big Apple. If Seacrest gets full price for his impressive mansion, he would make around $44M from the deal.
The American Idol host purchased the stunning contemporary compound from Ellen DeGeneres — who bought it from Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick — in 2012 for $39M. After DeGeneres sold the house to Seacrest, Mutchnick reportedly reached out to Seacrest and said he was never able to finish the home the way he envisioned it to be. Mutchnick and Seacrest teamed up to finish the architect and design of the exquisite property.
The resort-like estate in the bustling city can be compared to none, as it has five structures around the compound. Between the garden, pond, pool, outdoor sitting areas and main house, Seacrest's mansion provides the ultimate space for indoor/outdoor living.
While the 45-year-old seems to be making New York City his permanent home, he will still commute back to L.A. to film American Idol. (Maybe he'll even drop by his former abode and enjoy a day with the new owner on the expansive compound!)
Take a look at Seacrest's stunning Beverly Hills estate.
Seacrest listed his seven-bedroom, 10-bathroom contemporary home for $85,000,000. The extremely private and secluded estate is situated on three acres of land in Beverly Hills.
The oversized living room, which features high-beamed ceilings, a fireplace, wide-board floors and an entrance to the luxurious outdoor property, reflects the signature style of the contemporary home.
The dining room has most likely sat some of the greatest A-list stars, as it was DeGeneres' home for years before Seacrest purchased the mansion in 2012.
Whether it be at the sun-filled breakfast area or indoor/outdoor sitting area — which is just a few steps away from the main house — the new owner can enjoy a meal made in the gourmet chef's kitchen with marble countertops.
The immaculate master suite with entrance to the outdoor manicured property is the ideal oasis to escape to after a long day of work. When the owner has had enough entertaining, they could send their guests to one of the two guest houses on the property.
The private patio off the bedroom is an idyllic spot to sip a morning cup of coffee or appreciate an intimate evening in.
The extraordinary paneled window-wall in the marble master bathroom offers light and beautiful views of the outdoor oasis.
The den with a beamed ceiling and wide-panel floor is the perfect place to kick back, relax and enjoy a night with some pals.
The outdoor patio is a true entertainer's delight. With the pool, views overlooking the California skyline and kitchen only steps away from the sitting area, there is no need to leave the Beverly Hills compound.
After a nice massage in the spa room, quick workout in the gym or movie in the media room, the new owner can cool down with a dip in the pool. There is another sitting area off of the pool alongside an outdoor kitchen.
