Jim Carrey’s Longtime L.A. Compound Available for $28.9M

The Los Angeles compound that has been home to comic actor and writer Jim Carrey for decades popped up on the city’s real estate radar recently. Carrey has owned the 2-acre estate in Brentwood for about thirty years; he listed it in the first week of the month with a $28.9 million asking price.

The property’s centerpiece is a ranch house that originally went up in 1951. One would imagine that additions have been many, because it breaks into a second level on occasion, coils back on itself in a U-shape to nearly create an entirely sheltered courtyard, and constitutes one whopping great footprint. A detached guest house at a judicious remove brings the accommodations total to five bedrooms and eight baths across 12,704 sq. ft. of interiors.

Amenities include a fireplace master bedroom, a delightfully woody master bath with a fireplace and parquet floor, a theater and entertainment space with a deco-inspired wet bar, an office, and a solarium dayroom. Materials and architectural details include midcentury-style vaulted skylight ceilings, fireplaces a-plenty, and hardwood and polished brick floors.

A red brick walk and privacy wall inset with double doors provides the preamble to the property; beyond it the estate opens up majestically and unfurls across a romantic garden of lawns, mature trees, and tropical and Asian landscaping, with patios, a forested walkway, a tennis court, a stone-bordered swimming pool with a waterfall, a gazebo purposed as an outdoor billiards room, and a secluded covered sleeping platform appearing by turn.
