Steve Carell Sells And Moves Around the Corner

SELLER: Steve and Nancy Carell
LOCATION: Toluca Lake, CA
PRICE $5,100,000
SIZE: 6,637 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: In June 2010 Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winning actor Steve Carell and his occasional actress wife Nancy dropped $6,000,000 to acquire the Toluca Lake (CA) estate of recently deceased actor Jonathan Winters. They proceeded to raze the existing 5,200+ square foot residence—and every stick and leaf of landscaping as well—to make way for a what Your Mama imagines will be a much larger manse worthy of a television and movie star who reportedly earned nearly $300,000 per episode on his last season on The Office.

Your Mama isn't sure if Mister Carrel's new digs are finished but we do know, thanks to a leg up from Yolanda Yakketyyak and confirmed with property records, that the Carells quietly sold their old Toluca Lake home—literally around the corner from the old Winter's estate—in mid-March 2012 for $5.1 million to a former head and neck surgeon turned acquisitions and operations executive at multi-billionaire Tom Gores' Platinum Equity.

Property records show Mister and Missus Carrel purchased the property in June 2006 for for an unknown amount of dinero and as far as Your Mama can tell the Beaver Cleaver-ish white clapboard sided Colonial was not listed on the open market. The Los Angeles County Tax Man shows the 6,637 square foot house, all but hidden behind tall trees and an electronic drive gate, was built in 1999 with five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

In addition to their multi-million dollar residential real estate holdings in California, Mister and Missus Carrel also maintain a much more modest 4 bedroom and 2 bathroom residence in Marshfield, MA as well as the Marshfield Hills General Store that's run, as per the shop's website, by Mister Carrel's wife's sister.

What an irony that a man with no talent purchased the home of a very funny and talented comedian. Mr. Winters home was probably 100x nicer than whatever this pair will construct.

Amen. did I read correctly that the house torn down was built in 1999?..

No. You did not read correctly. The colonial home recently sold to the-surgeon-turned-equities-mogul for $5.1 million was built in 1999. The Jonathan Winters home was torn down after being purchased for $6 million in 2012.

On another note, who lives in the sliver-of-a-house next door to the colonial house on Whipple? I mean, talk about narrow

They lost a bundle on their just-sold house. I remember them buying it back in 06 for $5.8 or something like that.

Ugh, Toluca Lake has to be the most boring upscale neighborhood in all of L.A. It even makes Calabasas seem hip by comparison...

Whats the point of moving around the corner? Seems like the man was jealous of his neighbor's house or social status

Meow. The guy's worked hard for his success, but sure, why not tear him down any way possible?

I dunno, San Marino sure gives Toluca Lake a run for its money in the "boring" department.

Toluca lake is no where near boring, it's centrally located next to all the studios and Hollywood, ventura blvd. The only person who it may seem boring to is someone not working in the INDUSTRY. it's HOLLYWOOD BABY!!!

No talent? He started at the bottom at the Daily Show and now commands top dollar for movies. What do you do? And how boring can Toluca Lake be with Miley Cyrus right up the street? And maybe they moved because the lot is bigger and better situated but they like the neighborhood. You people are bitter no talents.
