According to public records filed with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, the 50-year-old actor and his wife Nancy Carell have built their dream two-storey home — a Cape Cod-style mansion in Toluca Lake, Calif — complete with a giant swimming pool, spa, cabana, guest-house and private tennis court.
But Carrell’s home “office” is a sight to behold.
In the massive 5028 sq ft basement, the silver screen comedian has installed his own home theater with powder room, its own bathroom and a recreation room — all served by an elevator.
His double garage is equally as impressive, too. The noted car enthusiast has built his own “automobile elevator”, records reveal.
Both the elevator and a staircase can take guests to the second floor of the home, which has three bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms plus a ‘Rumpus Room’ for his two kids, Elizabeth, 12, and eight-year-old John, to play in.
What else is inside?
On the 7058 sq ft first floor, there is a guest room with adjacent bathroom plus a study, living room, dining room and a den which leads to an outdoor porch.
At the back of the house, there is a large kitchen with an adjacent breakfast room and Butler’s pantry.
Carrell, who also likes mountain bike riding, built a “mud room” — a entryway intended as an area to remove and store footwear — next to his laundry.
The grounds of the estate are beautifully landscaped with automatic lights throughout.
“There are a lot of famous people who live here, but Steve and his wife are very friendly with the neighbors – he acts like a regular family guy not like a typical, flashy Hollywood celebrity.”
