Kelsey Grammer’s divorce drama never seems to end thanks to the real estate he shares with his ex-wife Camille. He just sold his Beverly Hills home at 701 North Linden Dr for $6.7 million, which he purchased with his new wife, Kayte Walsh, on April 25, 2012, for $6.5 million. Kayte has admitted to Oprah that she’s “not proud” of how her relationship began with Kelsey, who was still married to Camille when they started dating. Kelsey’s divorce from Camille became the central plot of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” in which she starred.
The home Kelsey just sold features five bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and more than 6,000 square feet. It has a Spanish Colonial style, with wood-beamed ceilings, arched windows, and Spanish tile. Both levels feature large windows that look out into the pool and garden area. There’s a separate guest house with one room, making the total bedroom count six, and a detached three-car garage. The home is completely private, but is a short walk to all the bars and restaurants of Beverly Hills. The home was listed by Christopher Dyson, of Keller Williams Hollywood Hills.
After his STARZ show, “Boss,” was cancelled, Kelsey wanted to rent it out for $30K a month and move into his home at 261 Baroda Dr in Los Angeles, which he still owned with ex-wife Camille. But Camille wasn’t happy about that; the home (at the time) was valued at nearly $18 million, and Camille thought it would be difficult to sell with Kelsey and Kayte living in it. Kelsey argued that since Camille was living in their Malibu home located at 3250 SERRA Rd (and valued at $17.5M at the time), it was only fair that he lived in the L.A. home. The court decided they should sell both homes, as well as a third home they own in Colorado. Flash forward eight months; the Malibu home is still on the market, listed by Christopher Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker, but the price has been significantly reduced, to $14,995,000. The L.A. home was on the market for the same price (I guess that’s fair!), but was delisted for an unknown reason on April 4. The Colorado home is still on the market for $6,995,000.
How would you feel living in the home you once shared with your ex? Would you try to rent it out while it’s on the market, or stay put?
