Jimmy Kimmel Lists His Surprisingly Sophisticated Hollywood Home

Sure, it's got a beer tap and a pastry case, but it also has unique and beautiful Hollywood Regency style that make his asking price quite reasonable.

Jimmy Kimmel's Hollywood home features a dining/media lounge with a diner-style glass pastry case, an electric adjustable dining table with a seating booth and four large TV screens, not to mention beautiful wood built-ins, tile walls and floors, and artful lighting.

When you think of a home fit for talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, you might imagine the ultimate party pad with a state-of-the-art media room, beer tap and perhaps a trampoline in the backyard, leftover from his Comedy Central The Man Show days. What you probably wouldn’t imagine is an uber-cool Hollywood Regency-style home with exceptionally tasteful design and decor.

Okay, so this home in the Hollywood Hills’ Cahuenga Pass, just south of Universal Studios and maybe a five-minute drive to his talk show studio on Hollywood Boulevard, does have a beer tap in the outdoor kitchen, but it also has five beautiful and unique bathrooms and bedrooms, with one that contains a sound booth and can function as a recording studio. And another remarkable feature of the 3,605-square-foot house is that he’s not asking a fortune for it: He just listed it at $2,299,000, which is quite the steal for celebrity homes in the area.

He should still make a decent profit, however. It seems he bought the home, which was originally built in 1947, for $925,000 back in 2002, but has done substantial remodeling, especially of the kitchen and bathrooms. The property sits on one of the highest elevations in an area known as “Hollywood Knolls,” and has views of the city lights below and the surrounding hills, which would be considered mountains to many. While it’s just minutes away from Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, not to mention the famed 101 Freeway, it actually feels a bit cozy and remote.

Yes, it has a pool, spa and lots of mature landscaping, but among its most remarkable features are the kitchens and dining areas, both indoors and out. Inside the house you’ll find a kitchen with a Wolf cook top, double Bosch ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a separate ice maker, a working soda dispenser and swinging pantry doors. It opens onto a dining/media lounge with a a diner-style glass pastry case, an electric adjustable dining table with a seating booth and four TV screens. Outside you’ll find the much commented upon beer tap, as well as a barbecue, pizza oven, smoker and a beautiful bar built around a tall oak.

A stunning floor-to-ceiling bay window in the living room, as well as neutral colors and plenty of rich wood floors and built-in cabinetry, highlight the rest of the home. You better move fast if you’re interested (and who isn’t?) and have a spare $2.3 million hanging around (who does?). We’re thinking this one will be snatched up quickly.
