The man who gave us “Paul Blart Mall Cop” and “The King of Queens” only spends $ 14 million on a sprawling six-bedroom beachfront property in Delray Beach, Florida. Apparently, Kevin James has been eyeing this property for some time and was able to obtain it for less than the $ 15,950,000 originally listed. The property was recently renovated both inside and out. A team of architects and interior designers redesigned and upgraded the seaside mansion according to property records.
The 18,906-square-foot home is in the very iconic area of Delray Beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, just north of the chic Boca Raton. The property grounds are lush landslides. The property has a five-car garage attached to the main house. The house has an elevator, upgraded finishes, a recreational area and a wine cellar. The courtyard features an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill and a pool just steps away from the sea. There is also a one bedroom, one bathroom guest house.
James is most famous for his long-running sitcom “The King of Queens”. He played the role of Doug Hefferman in a total of 207 episodes from 1998 to 2007. For the show’s running mid-season, Kevin’s salary on “The King of Queens” was $ 300,000. For the final season, he earned $ 400,000 per episode. As an executive producer and owner of one percent of the show’s backend equity, he has earned a $ 50 million answer on syndication deals to date, which explains how he was able to spend $ 14 million on an oceanfront estate is.
This is not James and his wife Stefiana’s first role in the actual state scene of Delray Beach. In 2012, he paid $ 18.5 million for the grand blockfront home One Block from his new home. A year later, he paid $ 4.25 million for the vacant next door to build a completely ridiculous campus. He listed the nearly 3-acre property for sale in 2016 for $ 29 million, without finding a buyer. They are still the owners.
Kevin previously owned a couple of homes in Los Angeles, most notable in 2013 he sold for $ 5.5 million.
