Late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien is swapping his longtime Carpinteria home for a new dwelling in the coastal California city. After seven years of ownership, the comedian listed his 2.142-square-foot beachside home with a $16.5 million ask earlier this summer. Dirt reports that O’Brien just shelled out $23 million to upgrade to a 3,476-square-foot abode with sweeping ocean and mountain vistas.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom Cape Cod-style house was built in 1963, but has since been rebuilt and remodeled with modern touches. Situated on a lot slightly larger than an acre within the exclusive and private Sand Point community, the exterior of the split-level structure is sided with milky white wooden shingles complemented by sage-green trim. Dreamy rose gardens and other lush landscaping decorate the property and rustic stone steps lead directly to the beach.
Inside, the neutral color palette of the home’s exterior is continued with cream-hued walls and matching painted wood-beam ceilings set high above oak floors. French doors and an excess of windows invite plenty of natural light and blur the indoor spaces into their outdoor surroundings, which offer multiple patios, decks, and a fire pit. The owner’s suite in particular offers views of the ocean, mountains, and the Channel Islands with a private deck outfitted with a built-in spa. A walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom with dual sinks and a sleek glass-walled shower complete the primary quarters. The three other bedrooms all enjoy their own recently refurbished ensuite bathrooms.
The common spaces include a deluxe kitchen with a skylight and breakfast nook, a living room with a stone fireplace, a formal dining room, a family room, and an office. All are decked out in neutral but cozy trappings that utilize lots of natural materials like wood, stone, and rattan.
O’Brien also maintains a $20 million property in the Pacific Palisades.
