36 days after listing his palatial Encino mansion for $5,495,000, ‘King of Queens’ actor Kevin James has sold the spread for $55,000 more than the asking price. He must of priced it just right, because the home flew off the market at record speed. The incredible 11,291 square-foot home on Bertella Drive in Encino, CA has 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. Property records show that James purchased the home on August 14, 2003 for $3,200,000. Looks like he made a tidy $2 million+ profit on the sale!
The still unknown buyers are getting a home that is a a true, resort-quality, custom estate set privately behind gates, on a cul-de-sac street. The impressive retreat features an open floor plan and the finest amenities – which include a state-of-the-art home theater, Crestron Home Automation, a massive gym, luxurious spa and gourmet chef’s dream kitchen. The master suite has a sitting area with fireplace, his and hers baths, and a dressing room that mirrors a posh boutique on Rodeo Dr. Walls of glass doors open to the large, lush lot, complete with large outdoor entertaining areas.
Aside from his long and successful run on ‘King of Queens,’ James made his mark on Hollywood in lead roles in the comedy films I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Grown Ups, and Zookeeper.
