A few months after it was confirmed that James Corden will be packing up his family and moving back to the UK once his contract with The Late Late Show is over this spring, the actor and television host placed his New England-style Neo-Colonial mansion up for sale. Available at first only to an exclusive list of buyers late last year, the Brentwood mansion has now hit the open market at $22 million.
The Prom star reportedly purchased the estate for $9.7 million in 2017 and is said to have made extensive upgrades. The almost half-acre spread is perfectly secluded from street views by tall, thick, shrubs and trees. On the grounds are the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom 8,609-square-foot residence, well-manicured lawns to the front and back, a trellised porch and uncovered patio that both lead to a pool and spa, and children’s play area in the backyard.
Hardwood floors can be found throughout the home, including the thoroughly modern primary suite which has enclosed yet separated shower and toilet areas, and arched double doors that lead to a small balcony. There’s also a sitting area in front of a fireplace and a bay window with views of the backyard.
Downstairs, a unique deep turquoise color brings cabinetry in the chef’s kitchen to life, flawlessly off-setting the white and gray marble of its oversized island. The formal living room features a distinct, built-in wall-to-wall unit with a central wood-burning fireplace flanked by cubby-hole storage. A plush movie theater is outfitted with luxe velvet in ash gray and a smokey-blue carpet. Elsewhere, a library, formal dining room, and family room complete the ground floor.
Already a successful working comedic actor in the UK, James Corden moved stateside in 2015 to host CBs’s The Late Late Show. In 2022, The BAFTA award winner was banned from hotspot restaurant, Balthazar, in New York City after being rude to staff. He later made a public apology.
