Jim Carrey is one of the greatest comedic actors of all time, and the popularity of his roles in the Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, and Ace Ventura series may be attributed to his expressive face and exuberant slapstick performances.

The Canadian-born actor, who was far from being stereotyped as a jokester, went on to win praise from critics for his serious performances in The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He has co-written the book Memoirs and Misinformation, won eleven MTV Movie and TV Awards, and played Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live. He has also won two Golden Globes and eleven other awards. He declared in 2022 that he was taking a vacation from performing and was thinking about retiring. The prolific star has relocated to his vacation property in Maui and put the Brentwood estate where he had lived for the last 30 years up for sale.

The expansive ranch-style estate, which was formerly advertised for USD 28.9 million but is now listed for USD 26.5 million, is hidden between high hedges and exclusive red-brick gates. Five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms are included in the 12,700-square-foot house. The chic home’s high-beam ceilings provide plenty of circulation with sunlight flooding the dazzling white walls and Jim’s enormous art collection, which includes his own stunning masterpieces. The living, dining, and family rooms are connected by polished stone and hardwood floors, fireplaces, and lots of windows that look out onto the beautifully planted grounds. The chef’s well-equipped kitchen has an indoor BBQ. A breakfast nook with a circular design overlooks pear trees in bloom. A central courtyard with space for gathering or relaxing in the traditional California indoor/outdoor living style is accessible through a number of sliding glass doors.

In addition to having its own private terrace, Jim’s main bedroom suite also has a gorgeous wood-paneled bathroom with a copper-hooded fireplace, leaded glass windows, and a soaking tub. With mohair-covered couches, burl wood columns, and an opulent marble bathroom, the Art Deco-style home cinema pays homage to vintage movie theaters. The spacious home office and gym are ideal for the modern remote-work lifestyle. The expansive two-acre grounds, which are unusual for Los Angeles, have a full-size tennis court, a waterfall pool, a pool house with a bar, a sauna and steam room, vegetable gardens, and many old trees. Walking routes wind through the peaceful setting and lead to the platform for yoga and meditation. Carrey called the home “a place of enchantment and inspiration” and hopes it will continue to be “a magical sanctuary” for its next occupant.

Brentwood, one of LA’s most desirable communities, is close to Santa Monica’s bustle but still has a sense of community. Arnold Schwarzenegger, LeBron James, and Tobey Maguire all call Brentwood home. It is renowned for its tree-lined avenues, distinctive houses, and one of the best farmer’s markets in Los Angeles. The renowned Getty Museum, the Brentwood Golf Club, and the posh stores and eateries along San Vicente Boulevard are among the entertainment options.

The listing is held by Janelle Friedman of Sotheby’s International.
