Late-Night Show Host Bill Maher Welcomes The New Year With a New Vacation Home In This Stunning Location
Despite being a popular name in the entertainment business, political commentator and comedian Bill Maher seems to be pretty lowkey. So, it’s no surprise that his latest real estate purchase is a place that’ll be the perfect quick getaway from the bustle of Los Angeles.
Splurging $1 million, the ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ host just got himself a cozy vacation place located in a gated community on an island off the coast of California.
Perhaps looking to enjoy a slice of island living, the 63-year-old television personality bought into Catalina Island real estate and now owns a two-bedroom condo near the center of Avalon. He joins the estimated 4,000 residents of the Mediterranean climate island.
Maher’s new vacation pad may seem quite ordinary, especially when compared with the kind of multi-million-dollar properties celebrities like him buy. However, the 1,367 square feet abode does have stunning views and a fantastic location to make up for what it lacks in luxury.
The pad was reportedly built back in 1991. As can be expected, its exteriors are pretty much identical to the rest of the surrounding complexes’ red tile roofs and whitewashed walls. Going inside, one will find the condo’s living spaces flooded with the same sunlight outside thanks to the wood-framed windows that line its walls.
The place’s floor plan is quite simple with most areas connected to each other. For example, the living room also opens out to a deck where one and lounge and enjoy the sun or the clean breeze brought by the ocean.
Meanwhile, the formal dining area is set apart from other spaces by a divider, which also works as a cabinet. Right next to it is the kitchen where a four-seat breakfast bar made of off-white tiles is located. The condo’s new resident can then enjoy the master suite with a set of French doors that lead out to a back deck.
There’s also the master bath, which comes with a built-in bathtub, a steam shower, and dual vanities. Of course, Maher will have access to the building’s many amenities from tennis courts to an outdoor swimming pool.
For most of the time though, the host would be spending his days at his longtime full-time residence in his expansive Beverly Hills Post Office compound. The property is made up of three land parcels that Maher acquired in the span of years the largest of which he bought from A-list actor Ben Affleck way back in 2003.
The estate reportedly measures at 3.2 acres and is the site to four ranch-style structures. And it looks like he’s in good company here as fellow comedian Amy Poehler is said to be one of his neighbors.
