James Corden finally sells his LA mansion

James Corden, the British comedian and former host of The Late Late Show, has sold his Los Angeles home in an all-cash deal for $17.1 million.

Corden initially listed the property for $22 million last fall but had to reduce the price to $18 million due to a lack of buyers, according to Dirt.com.

Corden purchased the house in 2017 for $10 million from Modern Family creator Steven Levitan.

However, it is unclear whether he will make a significant profit from the sale.

Immediately after buying the property, Corden invested millions in renovating and upgrading it.

Additionally, the sale is subject to LA’s new mansion tax, which means Corden will have to pay nearly $1 million in extra taxes, along with the standard closing costs and realtor commissions.

Situated in the upscale Brentwood Park neighbourhood, the former Corden estate offers over 8000 sq m of living space.

The house, described as a New England transitional, features seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

The interior design was done by Corden’s wife, Julia Corden, who is an interior designer.

Notable features of the property include a fireplace-equipped living room, a marble-countertop kitchen, a 20-seat movie theatre, a library, and a family room with French doors opening to the gardens.

The half-acre property boasts beautiful landscaping typical of Brentwood Park, with tree-shaded lawns and brick patios suitable for outdoor dining.

It also includes an in-ground trampoline, a swimming pool, an attached three-car garage, and a Crestron home automation system for remote control of lights, sound, and security cameras.

As for Corden, with his late-night talk show now concluded, he is returning to his native U.K.

He recently filed plans to demolish a dilapidated house on his 44-acre British country estate in Oxfordshire, about 60 miles northwest of London, and construct a custom-designed modern building in its place.
