After owning his Hollywood Hills home for more than 30 years, comedian Richard Lewis is finally parting with it. Lewis has recently listed the property for $1.56 million, which was previously owned by “Green Acres” actor Eddie Albert, actor-dancer Gene Nelson, and voice-over actor Charles Judels.
The 1926-built Mediterranean-style home is cozy yet roomy at 2,508 square feet, and offers amazing views of Hollywood from its terrace with a large striped awning and free-standing fireplace.
Slate stairs leads from the street to a secluded entryway of the Laurel Canyon 3-story home that opens up to a living room with a wood-beamed ceiling, tile flooring, and a fireplace faced with an eclectic front screen.
The eat-in kitchen has been updated with white cabinets, grey counters, and brand-name stainless steel appliances. The formal dining area is lined with honey-toned hardwood flooring that provides a comfortable aura to the space.
The upper level is where the home’s carpeted media lounge is located, which is lined with walls of windows and glass doors, and one wall dedicated to floor-to-ceiling mirrored paneling. The master bedroom is privately located on the home’s uppermost “penthouse” level and encompasses a private den with access to the terrace, an inglenook lined with a cushioned bench, and a ceramic-tiled bathroom with rooftop views of downtown LA.
A private first-level guest suite provides the perfect sanctuary for overnighters.
A two-car garage sits at street level, and an off-street parking spot provides extra space for an additional vehicle.
Lewis and his wife Joyce Lapinsky have already bought their next home and are sticking around the LA area. Their new 2,290-square-foot ranch-style home comes with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and has been recently remodeled. The funnyman purchased his new abode for $1,537,500.
The 69-year-old comedian and actor is best known for his many stand-up comedy specials and his role as Marty Gold in ‘Anything But Love’. He’s also had a number of appearances in various television shows and movies, including “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Blunt Talk.”
