Camille Grammer Lists Malibu Manse
LOCATION: Malibu, CA
SIZE: 6,645 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen chickens, we've been holed up all weekend in Minneapolis with our dear old pals Chow Lee and The Laundress—not to mention our boozy, high-maintenance b.f.f. Fiona Trambeau—so we're exhausted and a little out of the celebrity real estate loop. However, before we head to the airport with an almost sober Miss Trambeau and wing our way home to the west coast we've got a wee tidbit to share about Camille Grammer—third ex-wife of sit-com star Kelsey Grammer and current cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–who's listed the family compound in Malibu, CA with an asking price of $17,500,000.
Property records show Mister and third ex-Missus Grammer purchased the 4.77 acre estate, tucked into the back of the guard-gated (and star-stocked) Serra Retreat, way back in May 1998 for $4,500,000.
Listing information isn't specific but property records we peeped show the main house was originally built in 1969, measures 6,645 square feet and includes four bedrooms and six bathrooms. What listing information does reveal is that the main residence includes formal living room and dining rooms; a Wolfgang Puck-designed kitchen with two center work islands, exposed antique wood timbers, and commercial-style appliances; a ocean view master suite; wood-paneled library; family room; and Creston-engineered home theater equipped with 12 (or more) brown leather seats, an over-sized projection screen, attached bathroom and separate kitchen.
The gated and laboriously landscaped grounds include a detached guest house (with multiple bedrooms, living room, large kitchen, 5-car garage, and roof top deck); free-form swimming pool and at least two spas; nine stall barn and dressage riding ring; lighted tennis court; and a lily pond.
We're not sure where third ex-Missus Grammer plans to decamp—or perhaps she already has vacated the premises—but the former couple still owns an approximately 8,500 square foot ski chalet on 1.67 acres in Avon, CO currently listed at $6,995,000 as well as a 10,567 square foot mansion with 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles currently on the market with a $16,995,000 price tag. The former couple's former house in the Hamptons was finally sold in May 2011 for $9,995,000 after first being listed in fall 2007 with a substantially higher asking price of $16,100,000.
Mister Grammer, who seems to spend the bulk of his time in New York City with his fourth wife, recently spent $6,500,000 on a new west coast outpost in the form of a 6,000+ square foot Spanish Colonial Revival-style residence in the flats of Beverly Hills.
*The property is owned through a trust and it's not clear to Your Mama if Mister Grammer or third ex-Missus Grammer—who remained in residence after their bitter split—is the legal owner of the property.
