Lewis is best known for his neurotic style of comedy. But he is certainly not nearly famous enough to drive up the value of the home as would happen if say Jerry Seinfeld or Adam Sandler were to sell theirs.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Lewis first bought the Mediterranean style house back in 1989 for just $720, 000. It was previously owned by other celebrities like Eddie Albert, Gene Nelson and voice-over actor Charles Judels.
The house boasts an exterior flight of slate-paved stairs from the street to the entrance which opens to a living room with tiny square taupe tile flooring, wood beamed ceiling, a fireplace with an Art Deco style screen. On the second floor, a wall-to-wall carpeted media lounge/family room has two long walls of windows and glass doors. There is a third wall covered in disco-style floor-to-ceiling mirrored panels. One wonders why Lewis needed this.
The master suite takes up the entire “penthouse level” and comes with a private office with access to the terrace. There is a white ceramic tiled bathroom with windows that provide an open view of downtown Los Angeles.
