Matthew Perry Rides the Real Estate Roller Coaster...Again
SELLER: Matthew Perry
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 4,100 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: After he listed his condo crib at the celebrity stacked Sierra Tower's complex in West Hollywood, dropped a hefty $8,650,000 on a supah-sleek and newly rehabbed residence high above the Sunset Strip, and then listed his very contemporary crib in Malibu with a $13,500,000 price tag Your Mama knew it was only a matter of time before sitcom star Matthew Perry (Friends, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Mr. Sunshine) heaved his primary residence–a boxy modern in the star-studded Outpost Estates neighborhood of Los Angeles–on the open market. Today, buttons, is the day.
Thanks to a kindly tipster we'll call Henry Headsup we've learned that Mister Perry has put his crisply modern ridge-top residence in the Outpost Estates on the market with an asking price of $5,695,000.
Property records show Mister Perry purchased the glassy pad back in March 2008, right about the time the bottom officially fell out of real estate markets around the country, for $4,475,000.
Current listing information reveals the gated two-story residence, located on a .34 acre parcel near the tail end of a quiet cul-de-sac, contains 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in about 4,100 square feet of airy and very contemporary interior space. Listing information indicates the house was originally built in 1955 and our research indicates it was remodeled sometime in the mid-Noughts by Los Angeles-based architect Scott Carty.
At the front there's a quite tight gated motor court and two-car garage with frosted glass-paneled door. The open plan interior spaces include a glass-walled living room with fireplace, city view and a lot of beige upholstered sofas and a dining area with round table that tightly seats six. the dining area spills right into a smallish sitting/family room area with wall-mounted flat screen tee-vee and built-in cabinetry that in turn opens into the sleek, sky-lit center-island kitchen complete with both dark wood and ecru-colored laminated cabinetry and snow white counter tops that Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter know from personal experience are a pain in the backside for our house gurl Svetlana to keep looking sanitary.
Like all big-living television and movie stars, Mister Perry's soon to be former residence in the Hollywood Hills includes a media room with wide-screen tee-vee, hidden audio-visual equipment and a quartet of black leather seats with built-in drink holders.
Mister Perry's sexy second floor bachelor-babe boo-dwar has two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass panels that slide open to a partially covered city view terrace, and a sybaritic wood-accented bathroom with double sinks, soaking tub, separate shower space and a terlit cubby hidden behind a frosted glass panel door.
The backyard wraps around the rear of the residence and includes dining and entertainment terraces, a plunge-sized swimming pool, raised spa, outdoor fireplace, wee patch of very green grass, oblique city views and unobstructed views across Runyon Canyon where hikers and dog walkers–we also know from personal experience–can themselves peer across the wide canyon into Mister Perry's backyard.
