SELLER: Jamie Kennedy
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 2,342 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Comedian Jamie Kennedy has (re-)listed his contemporized ranch house in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles on the market at a substantial loss with an asking price of $1,899,000.
Property records (and previous reports) reveal that Mister Kennedy purchased the property in July 2007 for $2,150,000. A few clicks and clacks of the well-worn beads on Your Mama's bejeweled abacus shows that even if his handsome real estate agent snags a full price sale—don't laugh, children, it could happen—Mister Kennedy is facing a $251,000 hit to his man purse not counting carrying costs, improvements and real estate fees.
Current listing information shows the double-gated and fully remodeled single story ranch house was originally built in 1958 and has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms (plus a full bathroom in the pool cabana) in 2,342 square feet of sleek interior space.
A glassy rear façade spills out to a resort-style backyard with multiple fire pits and water features, a built-in barbecue/outdoor kitchen and an elevated spa connected to the swimming pool by a river-like water channel. One of the more—ahem—interesting features is an all-glass above ground koi pond, an eye popping but utterly impractical and difficult situation to maintain—Your Mama imagines—without a part time koi pond cleaner on the payroll.
Your Mama heard through the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine that Mister Kennedy plans to decamp to downtown where his production company is located but we don't have any specifics on the wheres and how muches as regards to where exactly he plans to live.
