Beleaguered Insult Comic Kathy Griffin Sold Former Hollywood Hills Home (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
Los Angeles, Calif.
Price:
$4,492,500
Size:
8,098 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms

After more than a year on the market, beleaguered insult comedian Kathy Griffin, wrapping up a world tour, sold “Wings,” her former mansion in the Hollywood Hills for $4,492,500, substantially below the original asking price of $5.495 million but still a small fortune above the $2.85 million she paid for the dramatically sited residence in the spring of 2004. The three-story, elevator-equipped mansion, behind gates and positioned high above the street with panoramic canyon views, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and six fireplaces in 8,098 square feet.

A hotel lobby-like mid-floor foyer features a mosaic tiled pond and a curved staircase that climbs up to the uppermost floor where lustrous white terrazzo floors flow throughout the combination living and dining room as well as the updated kitchen that includes two huge work islands and a roomy dining area with a corner fireplace. Three en suite guest bedrooms on the lower level are joined by an enormous entertainment room/media lounge with a kitchenette that makes it easily convertible to self-contained guest or staff quarters while the master suite occupies its own wing on the upper level with a fireplace, sitting area, French doors to the swimming pool, a fitted walk-in closet/dressing room and a bathroom complete with a hair and make-up station and a multi-person shower. A slim, courtyard-sized backyard wedged between the house and steep hillside manages to squeeze in a dining terrace with outdoor fireplace, an elevated spa set into a tumble of boulders and a shade cabana next to a plunge-sized swimming pool.

Several months before she listed her Hollywood Hills pad, the sassy, sharp-tongued two-time Emmy winner who now claims she’s been blacklisted in Hollywood over a macabre photo she took with a bloody, fake severed head of Donald Trump, shelled out $10.5 million for a 13,177-square-foot mansion with nine bedrooms and a dozen bathrooms in the guard-gated Bel-Air Crest development where, until recently when they sold it for $17.8 million, the equally sized and custom-remodeled mansion next door was home to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
