Melvin “Mel” Kaminsky, aka Mel Brooks, has a career that spans over five decades and his accomplishments include the rare distinction of an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony award. His resume includes film director, actor, screenwriter and even composer, making it somewhat predictable to learn the multi-faceted entertainer has dabbled in the real estate world as well.
Over the years, Brooks has created a lengthy real estate portfolio that includes properties in Malibu, CA; Manhattan’s Upper West Side; Southampton, NY; Water Mill, NY; Fisher Island, FL; and Santa Monica, CA. With the exception of his Manhattan apartment and Malibu abode, Brooks has been continuously unloading his properties, selling his Southampton estate in 2003, Water Mill in 2010, and Fisher Island in 2008. And now, according to the Real Estalker, he is ready to say goodbye to his Santa Monica home too, listing the 3,901-sq ft condo for $5,995,000 earlier this month.
Brooks’ Santa Monica condo is an expansive unit, dominated by beautiful coastline and city views that can be enjoyed through floor-to-ceiling windows, either master suite (that’s right – there’s two), or any of the four, private balconies. Also included is a stainless-steel kitchen, 3.5 bathrooms, and an additional bedroom/office. The 7-digit price tag comes with six covered parking spaces and swanky building amenities such as a 24-hour doorman, pool, gym, and spa. Not to mention the two-tower complex is but a short stroll to the beach. Are you sure you want to let this one go, Mel?
