Even comedian Rodney Dangerfield’s home doesn’t get any respect.
The late comedian’s wife is having trouble finding an audience to buy this elegant property.
Joan Dangerfield, 70 – who was married to the famous comedian until his death at the age of 82 on October 5, 2004 – initially listed her luxury Los Angeles compound for $17.8 million last February, but was unable to find a suitable buyer. So I reduced its price. Down $16.995 million.
“I thought it would sell within a week, but it didn’t work out that way,” she recently told the Wall Street Journal of the mansion she bought for $6.25 million in the early 2000s. It was a big surprise. “It was a shock for me to see it on the market.”
The listing is owned by Aaron Kirman of AKG| Christie’s International Real Estate, which told The Post, “I am honored to represent Ms. Dangerfield on this one-of-a-kind heritage property. The combination of privacy, architectural integrity and a stunning view represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on Los Angeles’ treasured Bird Streets.”
The house, which sits on a “hill of solid rock” that offers a panoramic view of the city, has four bedrooms, six bathrooms and 16,673 square feet on two floors.
Built in 2004 by John Andrews Group Architects, Robb reports, it features a sunken living room flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows, Art Deco accents and a backyard equipped with an infinity pool.
Other outdoor amenities include an outdoor shower, a terrazzo patio, and a bust of Rodney next to the jacuzzi.
A chandelier hangs from one of the skylights, the kitchen has a circular breakfast nook, and the master suite has its own fireplace, a mother-of-pearl tiled wall, direct access to the outdoors, and an en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub. Double sink and changing room.
Elsewhere on the property are a home theater, formal dining room, and two-car garage.
