The next time David Spade visits the Comedy Store, he won’t have too far to drive. That’s because the actor-comedian of Joe Dirt fame has purchased a new home in the Hollywood Hills—about a mile away from the beloved comedy club—for $13.85 million.
Spade, a former cast member of Saturday Night Live who went on to feature in films such as The Wrong Missy and The Benchwarmers, also has residences in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. His new residence is the largest of the three, with a total floor area of 11,300 square feet spread over three floors.
The modern property, designed and built in 2020 by architect George Kurczyn, first hit the market for $13.9 million, but rising real estate prices pushed the ask to $15.45 million before selling to Spade.
There are six bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms in the sleek, box-like residence. A three-story lift, a wine cellar, a gym and a movie theater are among amenities of note.
The main level features expansive, atrium-like areas, with a floating staircase wrapped in glass leading from the entryway to the second level.
An outdoor living area, swimming pool, spa, and grass are all accessible through glass walls in the home’s spacious rear.
The land is somewhat less than half an acre in size.
A former Saturday Night Live alum, Spade has television credits that include the sitcoms Just Shoot Me! and Rules of Engagement. His popular films include the cult comedy classics Black Sheep and Tommy Boy More recently, he hosted the late-night Comedy Central talk show Lights Out With David Spade.
The sale was the sixth most expensive transaction in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood this year, according to The Los Angeles Times. Stuart Verrier of Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland represented Spade in the deal.
