TV Legend Larry King Just Quickly Sold His Longtime Palace-Like Residence & We Know The Reason Why
For people as rich as television and radio personality Larry King, parting with luxury homes may not be too hard. After all, their fortune affords them to get another one again right away if they wanted to. However, there seems to be so much more behind the 86-year-old ‘Larry King Live’ host’s decision to quickly part from the home he’s owned for more than a decade.
After only about three months in the real estate market, King’s 10,810 square feet mansion has reportedly been sold for $15.5 million.
This is a huge step up from the $11.75 million he and his now-estranged wife Shawn Southwick originally paid when they acquired the Beverly Hills property in 2007. And speaking of estranged wives, the entertainer’s bid to part with his home may have something to do with his ongoing separation from his seventh spouse.
The mansion comes Tuscan-style and boasts of seven bedrooms as well as nine bedrooms. These rooms are spread out between the estate’s poolside guesthouse and the main residence. The two-story abode features luxurious design elements like Venetian plaster and Italian limestone giving it an almost palatial vibe to it.
Elsewhere in the residence is a formal living room outfitted with wood-burning fireplace and fitting built-in bookshelves. Another similar fireplace is found in the formal dining room, which also boasts of having beautiful antique light fixtures.
A separate family room is found on the first floor of the home. Its features include an eat-in kitchen complete with its own breakfast nook. Meanwhile, another breakfast room serves as an easy entryway to the backyard passing through French doors.
The master suite, dubbed as the home’s ‘undeniable’ highlight, can be found on the upper floor. Here, the mansion’s new owner can enjoy facilities like a separate sitting room, a private terrace, and not just one but two bathrooms. The last also seems to be perfect for couples given its double vanities.
Aside from the master’s bedroom, other notable rooms in the mansion include a home gym, an office, and a wet bar found in the game room. Other lounging and relaxation areas are to be found outside where the swimming pool and spa are located. And as one enjoys sunbathing, they can rest assured of their privacy thanks to the tall hedges nearby.
King’s decision to part with the home comes after he filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years in June of 2019. Irreconcilable differences were the official reasons cited. On Southwick’s part, she shares being caught blindsided by the broadcaster’s decision but also acknowledged how her ex-husband is in a difficult time in his life given the health issues he’s battling.
