See Inside Actor Jim Carrey’s Art-Filled Home, Now on the Market for $29 Million (Art Not Included)
Carrey has lived on the property for 30 years.
A new real estate listing from actor-turned-artist Jim Carrey is offering a glimpse of the longtime star’s art-filled Los Angeles home—which could be yours, for a cool $28.9 million.
The sprawling two-acre estate in the city’s Brentwood neighborhood features a 12,700-square-foot ranch home where Carrey has lived for 30 years. It is listed for sale with Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Every night the owls sang me lullabies and every morning I sipped my cup of joe with the hawks and hummingbirds, under a giant grandfather pine,” Carrey told the Wall Street Journal, calling the home “a place of enchantment and inspiration.”
Over the decades, the actor, who has painted since childhood, has filled much of the space with his own art, especially after splitting with actress Jenny McCarthy in 2010 after five years of dating.
The brick facade home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, plus a gym, a tennis court, an outdoor yoga and meditation platform, a rocky-lined pool with a waterfall, a spa, and a pool house with an infrared sauna and steam room.
Among the works seen on the walls of the home are Carrey’s massive painting Hooray We Are All Broken, hanging behind the sofa in a white-walled living room beneath a pitched beam ceiling with skylights.
He’s been quoted describing the work: “so-called reality is energy and color creating forms that rise out of nothing. Broken figures dancing for each other filled with pain and polkadots, sharing one frequency, yet believing they are separate.”
Carrey also has work outside, with his sculpture Ayla, of a naked woman looking through a window frame, displayed on the lawn. Other personalized decor details include costumes from some of Carrey’s most memorable film roles, such as the green Riddler suit from Batman Forever.
The artwork and costumes don’t come with the house, but they do make prominent appearances in many of the listing’s photos—and some of Carrey’s work is still listed with Signature Gallery Group, which held a solo show of his work in Las Vegas in 2017.
It was Signature Galleries that helped publicize Carrey’s artistic side with a six-minute documentary film, I Needed Color, that same year. In the years since, the actor made headlines for sharing his political cartoons skewering President Donald Trump on Twitter—before quitting the social media platform in December in protest of its new owner, Elon Musk.
Carrey, who has shown his art with Maccarone gallery in Los Angeles, was also among the celebrities to join the NFT space in recent years, releasing a wellness-inspired piece to benefit the charity Feeding America in 2022.
