In the fall of last year, actor and talk-show host David Spade purchased a new modern in Los Angeles; the SNL alum shelled out $13.85 million for the 11,300 sq. ft. house, which is preceded by a formidable set of gates that might’ve saved Rome from the barbarian hordes.
However, Spade’s acquisition of the 2020-built property did render his other Los Angeles-area residence — another modern — redundant. And so early in 2022 up for sale goes the property in Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates, with an asking price of $19.995 million. The property attracted interest in no time; it is in pending status only a week after hitting the market.
The four-bedroom, seven-bath house spans 6,426 sq. ft. It dates to 1978, but has been heavily renovated. As it currently stands, it features a stark and rather pretty exterior dominated by linear and planar intersection and decorated by dark-finished timber accents.
The home’s shared living space is gloriously open, with a second-floor gallery and a leisurely set of steps descending from the kitchen and dining area to the living room. The exterior wall is mostly occupied by large glass panes that bring the fine city, ocean and mountain views inside the home and embellish the perspective of the living style with a potent feeling of connection with the greater landscape and a poetic sense of continuation.
Amenities in this house include a lounge with a full-sized bar and double-sided fireplace; outside, the 71-acre lot provides enough space for an adjacent pool — with sundeck and patio fire pit — and tennis court. The accommodations include another buoyant evocation of space: a master suite with a loft area and a terrace.
Spade lends his voice to the upcoming computer-animated monster comedy film Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, with Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kathryn Hahn, Jim Gaffigan, Steve Buscemi, Keegan-Michael Key, and Fran Drescher.
