Sharp-witted talk show host Chelsea Handler has listed her longtime residence in Bel-Air this autumn. Handler is asking for $10.5 million for the property, which is located in a particularly quiet corner of the neighborhood, and anchored by a contemporized 1964-built modern that contains six bedrooms and seven baths in 5,572 sq. ft. of living space.
According to the listing, Handler revised the home to taste during her ten-year ownership tenure. The setting is incredibly lush, and the residence’s living style incorporates the landscaping meaningfully at the entrance, where a garden-like alcove stands as a prologue to the interiors.
The design places the common area on the second floor, with a full wall of retractable glass opening to a large deck; the indoor/outdoor flex space features, as a backdrop, a solid wall of green-and-growing. Meditative, soothing, and secretive.
Atmosphere was also a preeminent concern for Handler, as the home uses ambient lighting sources of all kinds—LED backlighting, muted sconces, and spotlights pop up by turns on a tour of the home.
Floating shelves, semi-gloss hardwood plank floors and ceilings, terrazzo, stone tile, and a fireplace are a few other details of this house; amenities include an infrared sauna, a master suite with a private terrace, and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven. The .65-acre lot is spacious enough to allow for walking paths and leisurely gardens.
Handler’s upcoming standup special, Chelsea Handler: Evolution, premieres on HBO Max in a couple of days.
