‘South Park’s’ Trey Parker Sells Over Asking Price in Venice (EXCLUSIVE)

South Park” co-creator Trey Parker was hit with the lucky stick when he sold a contemporary residence along the scenic canals in Venice, Calif., after just three weeks on the open market. The sale price was $4.3 million — considerably above the $3.97 million asking price.

Property records indicate, and real-estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak swears on her antique-glass figurine collection, that the taboo-skewering animation creator bought the property via trust in 2010 for $3.25 million.
The boxy, stone-clad residence was completed in 2010, just before Parker’s purchase, and measures just shy of 3,300 square feet over three floors, with four bedrooms and 4.5 baths. A tile-floored open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen on the ground level is anchored by a stone fireplace and opens through ceiling-height glass doors to a canal-side terrace with built-in grilling station.

There’s a second fireplace in the master bedroom, which also features a trio of French doors that open to Juliet balconies. On the uppermost floor, there’s a game room with a wet bar and another stone-faced fireplace. A state-of-the-art screening room is outfitted with projection equipment and black leather theater loungers, and a sizable roof terrace provides wraparound views that are unobstructed but for a few extra-tall palm trees.

Parker, a five-time Emmy winner and Peabody Award recipient who also took home four Tonys and a Grammy in 2011 for Broadway Blockbuster “The Book of Mormon,” maintains a heavy-duty portfolio of multimillion-dollar residential properties that includes a 10,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial mansion in Brentwood, bought in 2013 for not quite $13.9 million; a seven-room condo in Midtown Manhattan picked up in 2011 for $4.05 million; a riverfront hideaway on the eastern coast of Kauai; and a luxury ski chalet in Steamboat Springs, Colo., that he co-owns with his BFF and fellow “South Park” creator, Matt Stone.
