Talk show host, comedian and producer Chelsea Handler has listed her home in Bel-Air for sale at $11.5 million.

The contemporary-style two-story, built in 1964, sits on more than half an acre of walled and gated grounds with a swimming pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen and a pizza oven. The 5,572-square-foot house has been updated to blend modern amenities with a Midcentury aesthetic.

Open-plan living areas, a chef’s kitchen, a den with a fireplace and a family/game room are on the first level. The upstairs master suite features a drop-down television, a large walk-in closet and a dry sauna for a total of six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

Floor-to-ceiling glass doors extend the living space outdoors, where an overhang provides cover for a lounge and fireplace feature. Decking and lush landscaping surround the pool area. At the rear of the property, a thin staircase leads up the hillside to a trellis-topped sitting area.


Handler bought the property eight years ago for about $5.942 million, records show.

The 42-year-old is known as the former host of the late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately,” which ran on E! Network from 2007 to 2014. More recently, she hosted the talk show “Chelsea” on Netflix.

Anne Leeds and Wyatt Parker of Pacific Union International hold the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
