Comedian Pauly Shore isn’t cracking jokes about the price on his contemporary home atop Nichols Canyon in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills. The mansion is on the market for a dead serious $9.5 million.
The current median list price for a home in the Hollywood Hills sits at $1.8 million. Is Shore’s home worth the hefty price tag?
Maybe! The proto-bro comic purchased the property back in his MTV glory days in 1996, for $1.15 million. The 4,500-square-foot, single-level home underwent extensive renovations in 2015. Shore’s original asking price for the property was $13 million—and that’s also no joke.
Shore had no nibbles at the eight-digit asking price, and soon listed the property as a luxury rental for $27,000 a month, after failing to land a buyer.
The current price is justified by a number of worthy features. Perhaps the best element of this ’50s-era architecture is its unobstructed, near-360-degree view of L.A., the nearby San Gabriel Mountains, the Hollywood sign, and the Pacific Ocean.
The open floor-plan home features four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, bright-white walls, concrete-colored floor tiles, an L-shaped infinity-edge pool with an attached spa, and plenty of natural light that floods the living and family rooms.
Shore started his career as a comedian at the age of 17. He became a household name for teenagers in the 1990s as an MTV VJ. Son of Mitzi Shore, owner of Hollywood’s legendary Comedy Store, and stand-up comic Sammy Shore, Shore was on top of the world throughout the 1990s. Known for his signature curly locks and surfer-dude, laid-back attitude, he started in such feature films as “Encino Man,” “Son in Law,” and “Bio-Dome.”
