Podcast King Adam Carolla Buys Californian Family Home for $2.9 Million
Adam Carolla, the host of 'The Adam Carolla Show', the most downloaded podcast of the world, has reportedly purchased a family home in the city of La Canada-Flintridge, California, for $2.9 million, according to several news reports.
The Zillow Blog reports that Carolla dropped the amount on a 1920's hacienda-style home recently. The new house is just a stone's throw away from actor Vince Vaughn's home. Carolla purchased the home under the name of the same trust that he bought his Malibu home in.
According to the listing records, the residence is a 3992 square feet home sitting on a 0.56 acre lot. Comprising of five bedrooms and four full and one half bathroom, the house is a posh single family casa, full of modern amenities.
Interiors of the private, gated residence features wood-beamed ceilings, wood-framed French doors and windows, hardwood flooring all done up in Spanish-style architecture. Outside, the home has a rear veranda that opens up to a large backyard lawn. A large salt-water swimming pool, an attached elevated spa and a barbecue make up the exteriors.

Carolla and his wife lived in a Spanish style home in Hollywood since 2003. They vacated the place to move into the new neighborhood. The Real Estalker speculates that the couple might have moved as the suburb's school system is one of the best in the country and as they have school-going fraternal twins.
Carolla shot to fame with his stint on the radio talk show, 'Loveline'. He co-hosted the show with Drew Pinsky and went on to host his own talk show (distributed as a podcast) that has been ranked the most downloaded podcast by the Guinness World Records. He also appeared on several celebrity reality shows like 'Dancing with the Stars' and 'Celebrity Apprentice'.
It all started 20 years back when he volunteered to train 'Jimmy Kimmel' for a celebrity boxing event.
"They needed trainers, and I was working as a boxing trainer at the time, and I said, 'I'll train one of these guys.' I wasn't thinking about training Jimmy, per se. I would have taken Michael the Maintenance Man and had a whole new career, I'm sure," Carolla said in a candid conversation with Chicago Sun Times.
"I showed up at the radio station and Jimmy came down the hall, and he wasn't doing anything. He was making, I don't know, $53,000 a year working at the radio station? And he said, 'When do you want to start?' and I said, 'How 'bout today?'"
And the rest was history!
