Alex Trebek, the host of “Jeopardy!”, died in 2020 after succumbing to pancreatic cancer. He left behind his Studio City estate, which came on the market at the beginning of the year.

After just 47 days on the market, the property is now under contract. The final price has yet to be disclosed, but the home was listed for $6,995,000.

Trebek purchased the property in 1991 for $2.15 million. Let’s go one final round on the popular TV personality’s home.

With close to 10,000 square feet of living space, the floor plan features four bedrooms, nine bathrooms, four fireplaces, formal and casual dining areas, and a kitchen with a butler’s pantry.

Other amenities include a movie theater and a bar with a circus tent-style ceiling.

Set on almost 1.5 acres, the property also features a detached one-bedroom guesthouse that makes hosting a breeze.

The parklike grounds really steal the show, with a pool, greenery, a fountain, brick pathways, and mature oaks. Decks and patios offer multiple outdoor living and dining options.

While the interiors, especially the kitchen, probably need refreshing, the gated estate also offers some eye-popping details. Unique elements include twin curved staircases, a circular domed ceiling in the living space, and a double-height seating area in the primary bedroom.

Ideal, and idyllic, location

The eight-time Emmy winner was said to commute daily from his regal residence to the studio nearby where he taped the beloved trivia show. Along with lush green spaces on the acreage, the convenient spot is steps from the hiking trails of Wilacre Park.

All in the family

Perhaps fitting for a the home where Trebek had lived with his wife and three children, the listing was held by Trebek’s daughter, Emily Trebek. She co-listed the property with Renee Ogiens, both with Compass.

The Canadian-born media personality hosted the quiz show for 37 seasons, from 1984 to 2020.
