Ever since Chelsea Handler split with long time beau, Ted Harbert, owner of ComCast, she has been renting a 5 bedroom/6 bathroom mini-mansion for $35,000 a month. The home is 5,323 square feet of pure California style. The grounds include a bullet-shaped pool, horse stables, and a guesthouse/gym/art studio. The stable contains a horse gifted to Handler by Jay Leno after an appearance on The Tonight Show.
The Real Estalker says of the Handler home’s exterior, “The exteriors of the house, designed by Los Angeles architect Marc Whipple and painted a variety of shades of dusty brick and burnt orange, presents itself as thoughtful and well considered collection of cubed masses interlocked with variously sized volumes perforated and punctuated by large expanses of glass and orderly rows of small square and narrow vertical rectangular shaped windows. Altogether it looks to Your Mama like a kind of contemporary take on a southwestern adobe inspired by the soo-blime Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta and mixed generously with a more extroverted version of the puzzle-like architectural magic created by late-great Mexican master architect Luis BarragÃƒÂ¡n.”
Definitely a respectably-designed property, it was built in 1998 by a director for his sommelier wife. Handler has been renting the property since late 2009 or early 2010.
