Cost him a pretty penny, but actor Kevin James‘ new digs in Delray Beach are among the most tasteful of any celebrity’s South Florida house!
The burly star of Hotel Transylvania and Zookeeper has secretly plunked down $18.5 million for a 12,868-square-foot beachfront mansion in Delray Beach through a trust.
The OpieRussell Trust, according to county records, got the deed to 502 N. Ocean Blvd. on August 1. The trust is in the name of Jeff Sussman, who happens to be the 47-year-old James’ manager.
For a guy like James who makes a good living playing schleppers, meanwhile, the eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom crib with nearly two acres of beachfront land is anything but King of Queens-like.
For one thing, there’s a meditation room.
Yep, a room just to think.
Here is the MLS description of the rest of the property: “This tranquil setting is near Atlantic Avenue’s cosmopolitan boutiques and restaurants . . . This lavish ocean-side estate resides amid sweeping lawns and tropical gardens. By the shimmering saltwater pool is a cabana with summer kitchen, fireplace, cabana bath, a guest house, and sport court. A loggia with fireplace opens to the ocean-side gardens. Stunningly styled in antiqued European oak, mahogany, Pecky cypress, limestone, coral, and Alhambra tile, this serene domain sprawls over 26,509 total square feet.
“Breathtaking ocean vistas backdrop the grand master suite, opening to a romantic fire-lit loggia and balcony. The master bedroom adjoins a meditation room, while 2 wardrobe rooms accompany the sumptuous his-and-her bath with free-standing limestone slab tub and multi-head shower. There are 5 more bedroom suites and a playroom on the second level. The lower level includes an ultimate professional-style spa room features a hydrotherapy tub, massage area, and steam room. A gym, game room, wine room and staff quarters are also provided.”
Did we mention the eight-car garage?
