South Park’s Trey Parker Buys Big Brentwood Digs

BUYER: Trey Parker
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $13,288,255
SIZE: 10,000-ish square feet, 7 bedrooms, 11.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Thanks to a covert communique from real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak we’ve learned that Showbiz bad boy Trey Parker quietly splashed out nearly fourteen million clams in early July 2013 on a .79 acre mini-estate in L.A.’s quietly tony and much coveted Brentwood Park nabe.

Along with his b.f.f. creative partner, Matt Stone, Mister Parker is, of course, one of the co-creators of the taboo-busting animated supernova South Park. In addition writing and directing, Mister Parker voices for South Park including those of Eric Cartman, Ned Gerblansky, and God. By Your Mama’s count Mister Parker has won four of the eleven Emmys for which he’s been nominated for South Park and was nominated for a Academy Award (Best Music, Original Song) in 1999 for the South Park movie Bigger, Longer & Uncut. In 2011, he took home a Tony (Best Musical Direction) for the wildly successful and gleefully subversive Broadway musical The Book of Mormon.

Mister Parker’s purchase of the very grown up 7 bedroom and 11.5 bathroom Spanish Colonial mansion coincides and may or may not have something to do with the eminent birth of the child he’s about to have with his unfortunately named live-in gal pal, (former) stripper Boogie Tillmon. Forty seconds of research turned up some wickedly salacious things floating around on the internets about both Mister Parker and Miss Tillmon but, honestly, butter beans, they’re not relevant to the real estate matter at hand and are so scandalous and possibly libelous we dare not repeat them. Anyhoo…

Property records and marketing materials show the ten year old Thomas Callaway-designed mansion on a plum street in Brentwood was custom built in 2002 by veteran music executive Richard Foos, the former head of Rhino Records, and his wife, Shari. Good ol’ Yolanda Yakketyyak told Your Mama that for that last few years it had been leased by another bigwig music executive, Lucien Grainge, the Chairman of Universal Music, who moved on to his own giant mansion on a particularly posh street in Pacific Palisades that he and his wife, Caroline, purchased last November for $13,000,000.

Although it’s not called out in listing details from the time of the sale—and Your Mama certainly can’t verify the figures—the L.A. County Tax Man shows the main manse measures 9,747 square feet with another 992 square feet in the two-room poolside guest house.

Listing details show the primary entertaining spaces include an impress-the-guests style double-height foyer/stair hall ringed by a second floor gallery, formal living and dining rooms, library, office, and a media/music room. Family quarters include a top-grade center island kitchen with impressive field stone back splashes, an adjoining breakfast room with French doors, and an adjacent family room. For what Your Mama can tell from listing photographs there’s also a large den on the upper level with vaulted and beamed ceiling and somewhere there’s a game room with built-in bar and Old Timey knotty pine paneling.

The master suite is particularly sweet and comprises a separate sitting room with fireplace, a bedroom with sitting area and fireplace, a sizable (if entirely beige) sky-lit bathroom, and a deep and wide covered veranda that looks beyond the backyard towards the Santa Monica Mountains. A curved, exterior staircase provides convenient access to the backyard.

A columned loggia along the back of the house extends the living space to the outdoor areas that include a large terrace, built-in barbecue, a large flat lawn and, at the rear of the mostly flat property, a heated swimming pool with inset spa. The nearby pool house/guest house has a narrow wrap around porch, a large living room with tile floor and fireplace, bedroom, and bathroom.

Some of the house’s extra-added features and amenities include a whole-house sound system, solar heating, retractable push-button walls on the loggia, hand-painted tiles, stenciled wood beams and articulated wood ceilings, extensive built-in cabinetry, and at least seven wood burning fireplaces.

A thorough perusal of property records reveal Mister Parker maintains baller sized property portfolio that includes (but is hardly limited to) a couple of neighboring residences above Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills that were bought in two separate transactions in July and November 2002 for a combined $2,165,000.

Mister Parker also keeps: a house on the Wailua River in Kapaa, Kauai, HI he purchased in June 1999 for $900,000, a high floor condo at the swanky Continental Place complex in downtown Seattle’s Belltown nabe that he picked up in May 2004 for $850,000, and a custom-constructed ski chalet with over 7,000 square feet plus a fully fitted and kitted Japanese tea house in Steamboat Springs, CO. Property records show Mister Parker acquired up the 1.92 acre Steamboat Springs property in September 2002 for $1,425,000 and scooped up an adjacent 1.22 acre vacant parcel in July 2011 for $1.575. We also find evidence that Mister Parker shelled out $4,050,000 in May 2011 for a class icseven (room apartment) at high-brow pre-war building on W. 57th Street in New York City.

Mister Parker’s property portfolio appears to also contain numerous less impressive but hardly inexpensive residential properties in Fort Collins and Denver (CO) as well as Venice, Marina Del Rey, and Pacific Palisades, many of which were probably purchased for staff, family and/or investment purposes.
