Melissa Rivers Drops $7.7 Million on Pacific Palisades Property

Looks like staying away from Pacific Palisades is too hard for Melissa Rivers! After selling her previous home in the neighborhood for a little over $5.223 million, Melissa Rivers has purchased a new one there. The longtime Fashion Police host bought the house for $7.7 million in an off-market deal.

Measuring 4,888 sq. ft., although this house is a ‘downsize’ compared to her former 5,850 sq. ft. home, it’s loaded with fancy amenities ideal for a celeb of Rivers’ stature.

Let’s take a quick tour of the house, shall we?

A few bits from the past

The Cape Cod-style house was originally built in 2015. Before it was constructed, space was occupied by a modest two-bedroom Mellenthin-like bungalow (FYI, William Mellenthin was a prolific builder in the mid-20th century) which was demolished.

According to reports, to strike the deal, The Agency’s Marco Rufo spoke for the anonymous seller while Compass’s Laura Brau represented Rivers.

The two-story house comprises five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms with wide-plank wood floors and custom millwork. Its entrance begins with a spacious hall and leads to the dining cum living room, decorated with dark tree printed wallpapers and a carved-mantel fireplace.

On the same floor are an en suite guest/staff bedroom, a powder room, and a high-end kitchen. The kitchen is exposed to an informal dining area decorated with glass sliders and boasts a large marble center island. FYI, the glass sliders provide easy access to the dense backyard. 

On the second floor are three guest bedrooms with private baths and a main suite with an exclusive sitting area, built-in bookshelves, walk-in closets, and a stately fireplace. The primary suite also has a custom-built attached bathroom with dove-grey walls.

Surrounded by tall hedges, the backyard provides complete privacy and has enough room for a built-in fire grill, an outdoor fireplace, a large swimming pool, and an inset spa. As per the listing photos, there is enough space for installing a Ping-Pong table and a trampoline.
