Home John O’Hurley Hopes to Host a Sale of His $6.5M Beverly Hills Mediterranean
July 5, 2019
You can’t help but wonder how the listing for this Mediterranean-style home in Beverly Hills would read if it were published in a J. Peterman catalogue.
Because although the actor John O’Hurley has worked on many projects before and after, he’ll always be associated with the upscale adventurer, catalogue creator, and boss of Elaine in “Seinfeld.”
O’Hurley is back in the spotlight because he’s listed his remodeled manse again, this time for $6,500,000.
That’s the exact price it was listed for last time it was listed in 2013 and in 2012. It looks like the kind of house that’s difficult to part with—it’s been on and off the market a number of times since he bought it in December 2004 for $3,050,000.
Originally built in 1923, the Coldwater Canyon home has been updated and expanded so that it now contains 5,391 square feet of interior space, five bedrooms, and 7.5 bathrooms
John O’Hurley’s Beverly Hills Mediterranean.
Two of the full bathrooms are both part of the master suite, one done in light, brighter grays and whites, the other done in more masculine brown marble and polished wood. Both lead to spacious walk-in closets.

The house is decked out with Venetian plaster, arched passageways, elegant marble and wood flooring, custom wrought iron, French doors, and intricate stonework.
No Mediterranean home would be complete without arched doorways and a terra-cotta tile roof. The tiles cover both the main house and the charming guesthouse in back. The guest accommodations come with a full bedroom/living room combo and a bathroom.
The private and gated property features a six-car motor court and a two-car garage in front, which is a real premium in this part of Beverly Hills, where street parking isn’t easy.
Out back, the home resembles a private resort, with lush foliage, a saltwater pool and waterfall spa, plus numerous patios, decks, and water features.
Backyard dining area with stone wall and fountain
Another standout space is the lower-level media/game room with a wet bar, which opens out to the dining/entertaining area.
In addition to the iconic J. Peterman role, O’Hurley, 64, has worked on game shows, done plenty of voiceover work, and finished as the runner-up on the premier season of “Dancing With the Stars” in 2005, the year People magazine dubbed him one of the “Sexiest Men Alive.” You can also catch him as the host of “The National Dog Show Presented by Purina,” the annual canine show on Thanksgiving.
