Comedian to live in a celebrity-infested neighborhood.
By Deepak Chitnis
WASHINGTON, DC: Comedian Aziz Ansari has purchased a lavish house in California for just under $2.7 million.
The house – which was purchased for the exact amount of $2,686,950 – is a 3,000 square-foot property in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-story main hall area, and 20 foot-tall ceilings. A mid-century post-modern style home with Zen influences, it was designed by the Buff & Hensman architectural company.
Ansari bought the house from director Andrew Douglas, best known for his work on the FX television program “American Horror Story” and the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror. Douglas came into possession of the house in 2007, having bought it for around $2.15 million at the time.
Ansari, the thirty-year-old Indian American stand-up comedian who rose to fame in 2007 with his role on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” has hosted numerous comedy specials and starred in hit films like 2009’s Funny People and 2013’s This is the End. Earlier this year, he released a special entitled “Buried Alive,” which was distributed by Netflix Instant Watch in an exclusive deal.
Earlier this year, Ansari also signed a $3 million publishing deal with Penguin Books. Through the deal, Ansari will write a book about the modern state of dating and relationships in America, which will hit shelves within the next couple of years.
Los Feliz is a particularly upscale part of Los Angeles. Other celebrities who live or have lived in the area include superstars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Colin Farrell.
