Adam Carolla sells his Hollywood Hills villa and pub for $4.8 million

Adam Carolla will have to find a new bar to belly up to in the coming year.

The comedian and his wife, Lynette Paradise, have sold their home in Hollywood Hills, which features a vintage pub with its own entrance, among other things, for about $4.8 million.

The Spanish Revival-style villa, called Vista del Lago, sits behind a double-gated entry and has a circular driveway.

Beyond a hand-carved front door, the house opens to a two-story entry with a detailed ceiling, Saltillo-tiled floors and a wrought iron staircase embellished in colorful tile. A dining room with cathedral ceilings and a step-down living room with dark wood floors are in keeping with the original 1920s style.

Other areas include a retro-inspired kitchen with a center island, a second living room, a gym, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. A private balcony and freestanding brick fireplace highlight the master suite.

An inner courtyard with alfresco dining and a tiled fountain sits between two wings of the home and is accessed by arched French doors. In the pub, porthole windows look onto the swimming pool.

A massive garage with a lift and parking for up to 10 cars is also within the more than half-acre grounds.

Carolla and his wife bought the house in 2003 for $1.63 million.

Todd Marks of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. James Foreman of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer. The exact sale price was $4,801,500.

Carolla, 51, is an actor, producer and writer whose credits include “The Man Show” (1999-2004), “Crank Yankers" (2002-07) and “Catch a Contractor” (2011-current).

He has hosted  “The Adam Carolla Show,” a daily podcast series, since 2009.
