“Friends” star Matthew Perry quietly joined the Pacific Palisades community this August, after purchasing a $6 million cottage, according to Variety.
Perry made the move after putting up two of his other properties for sale, reducing the listing price on his Los Angeles penthouse from $35 million to $27 million and placing his Malibu Beach house on the market for $14.95 million.
The luxury LA penthouse, dubbed “Mansion in the Sky,” takes up the entire 40th floor of The Century building, according to a recent report in House Beautiful. The loft-style Malibu home boasts glass walls and stunning ocean views.
The real estate transactions were done discreetly, with the sale omitting the name of the Realtor and agency, and information being discovered on Trulia, according to Variety.
Perry’s new Palisades home, built in 1965, underwent renovations in 2018 to give it the more contemporary style it boasts today.
The modern ranch-style home is 2,696 square feet and has an open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling windows that stare out at the Pacifc coastline. It also has a floor-to-ceiling wine wall, recessed LED lights and wheat-colored oak floors.
The clean-line designed cottage contains four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two master bedrooms have pocket sliding doors that open up to private pergolas with bathrooms that feature Jack-and-Jill sinks, soaking tubs and a large steam shower.
There’s also an extra-wide pivoting front door to transition from the living and dining spaces. The kitchen comes complete with a concrete breakfast table, top-of-the-line appliances and a wall made up of floating planters for an in-house vegetable garden.
In keeping with the times, the home features an electronic facial recognition entry system to offer extra security. The property is situated on a steep hillside with hosting amenities, such as a fire pit, raised pool and spa “perched” on the cliff’s edge overlooking the ocean.
Fans of Perry are looking forward to an upcoming “Friends” reunion of the popular ’90s television series about six 20-something-year-old close friends living in the heart of New York City.
The entire cast, including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Perry, agreed to join the production, currently delayed due the pandemic.
