Scots-born comedian Craig Ferguson will be laughing all the way to the bank if he can find a buyer for his Hollywood home which is on sale for nearly £5 million.
The former The Late Late Show host paid just over £3million for the seven-bedroom mansion in 2012.
The two time Emmy winner and his third wife Megan Wallace-Cunningham bought the sprawling estate in the hills above Los Angeles.
The 56-year-old, who now hosts Celebrity Name Game, became an American citizen in 2008.
The house, complete with guest accommodation, is being sold by Sotheby’s International Realty.
It is described as a “one of a kind” house “a sprawling, shingle-clad multi-story affair built in 1909 that retains a variety of original or recreated Arts and Crafts details.”
Ferguson and his art dealer wife Ms Wallace-Cunnigham bought the house in 2012 for £3.2m [$4.1m], and are now seeking bids of around £4.71 [$6m].
The couple have one son together, Liam, and he has another, Milo, with his second wife Sascha Corwin.
The main building has four bedrooms and even more bathrroms with a detached guest cottage with double-height living room and high-ceilinged bedroom.
The dining room has a grand fireplace shared with a loung off it.
The penthouse level master suite includes a marble-tiled bathroom and a private, stone-paved terrace with a bird’s eye view over the property’s terraced gardens and views of Bronson Canyon.
There is also a a gym and a recording studio, a ‘library pavilion’ [sic] off the kitchen for author Craig.
Outside the kidney shaped pool is surrounded by gazebos to ward off the Los Angeles sun.
Springburn-born Craig first made his debut as an entertainer playing alongside future Doctor Who, Peter Capladi, in a punk band The Dreamboys.
He then went onto create Bing Hitler as he toured venues around Britain, as a stand-up comic, before moving to the US.
But there is not a lot of showbiz bling on display at the house where many of the sofas are covered with throws, and look well-worn.
