Movie/TV star Kevin James played part of Adam Sandler’s immature gang of friends in the 2010 blockbuster, Grown Ups. However, before the film’s sequel hits this summer, James wants to unload something he’s outgrown: his mansion in Encino, California.
The actor just snagged $5.5 million for the 2-acre property, which is a nice little jump over the $3.2 million James paid back in 2003.
He bought the home right in the middle of his successful nine-season sitcom run, in TV’s The King of Queens. Apparently, now that he’s got Paul Blart: Mall Cop money, the actor and his family need some bigger digs. According to Curbed, James bought an $18.5 million mansion in Florida just last year.
This 11,291-square-foot home includes five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a wine rack wall, a full gym, and a copper La Cornue stove. However, he also seems to like his high-tech toys, since the home also has a state-of-the-art movie theater and whole-house Crestron control.
To get a peek at some of the rooms inside this house, check out our “Movie Star Kevin James Sells His Crestron-Controlled Home” slideshow.
