Pauly Shore to Lease Newly Rehabbed Hollywood Hills House

OWNER: Pauly Shore
LOCATION: Los Angeles, Calif.
PRICE: $27,500 per month
SIZE: (approx.) 3,000 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: It’s come to our attention via the Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial that Pauly Shore has hoisted his freshly renovated residence near the tippy top of L.A.’s Nichols Canyon up for lease on the open market at $27,500 per month.

The comedy scion — his mother Mitzi, now in her 80s and coping with Parkinson’s disease, co-founded and continues to own the legendary Comedy Store on L.A.’s Sunset Strip — purchased the linear and low-slung, late-1950s-era residence in May 1996 for $1.15 million.

The freshly rehabbed house, at the tail end of a shared private drive, measures about 3,000 square feet, with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, and its promontory perch provides the property with, as noted in online marketing materials, nearly 360-degree views that encompass the Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory, the downtown skyline, the Santa Monica Mountains and, on a clear day, much of L.A.’s Westside, the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.

Folding glass doors in both the living and dining rooms — the former anchored by a fireplace with cantilevered hearth — open to a vast, sun-baked concrete terrace with a photogenic if somewhat L.A.-cliché infinity-edged swimming pool. The centrally located, center-island kitchen has high-grade appliances and extra-thick slab granite countertops, while the master suite opens to a private deck with unobstructed views.

This isn’t the first time Mister Shore, who once and sort of famously dubbed himself “the Weasel,” has put his house out for lease. Way back in late 2008, long before its recent overhaul, Your Mama dissed and discussed the property after it popped up on the open market as a furnished rental at $15,500 per month.

Some of the children might recall that Mister Shore’s momma’s house, on North Doheny just above the Sunset Strip and once home to 1940s star Dorothy Lamour, came up for sale in late summer 2013 at $5.8 million and sold in early February the next year for $5 million to an unidentified buyer who has razed Miz Shore’s house to make way for a brand new residence.
