Celebrity Real Estate News: Johnny Carson’s Stunning Malibu Beach Home On Market

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The King of the late-night talk shows host Johnny Carson was a standout among entertainers. Though three preceded him in the genre: Arthur Godfrey, Steve Allen and Jack Parr, it was Carson who became the icon of late-night talk shows.

He sent Americans to bed each night with a smile on their face and was instrumental in boosting the careers of many entertainers we still enjoy today including Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Roseanne Barr, David Letterman and Jay Leno.

After he moved his show from New York to Burbank in 1972, Carson loved to play golf and for a number of years owned a home in Bel Air. However, in the mid-1980s he bought a four-acre, cliff-top home above the celebrity-studded Point Dume community in Malibu overlooking the Pacific Ocean where he lived with third wife, Alexis, until his death in 2005.

After Carson’s death in 2005, his wife Alexis continued to live there for two more years before selling to film producer Sidney Kimmel and his wife, Caroline. The Kimmels restored it to its original plan and have recently put it on the market for $81.5 million.
