Adam Sandler’s house, formerly owned by Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, was bought $12 million as a gift for his wife, Jackie

Back in the early 2000s, Adam Sandler’s wife fell in love with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn’s house, a sprawling 14-bedroom property in the posh L.A. neighborhood of Pacific Palisades. Before long, the Murder Mystery actor bought it for $12 million

Adam Sandler might be known as the king of laid-back fashion but when it comes to his real estate portfolio, this funnyman does not play around.

The 56-year-old actor, best known for his comedic roles in timeless flicks like Big Daddy, The Waterboy, Happy Gilmore, Mr Deeds, The Longest Yard, Grown Ups, is now starring in the hyped Netflix-made action-comedy Murder Mystery 2, which reunited him with his co-star, former FRIENDS actress Jennifer Aniston.

But his foray into drama didn’t go unnoticed either, with Sandler’s masterful performance in the Safdie brothers’ Uncut Gems (2019) gaining him widespread critical acclaim, with several critics deeming it the best of his career. He followed that up with a nuanced performance as a weary, unfulfilled scout in 2022’s Hustle, earning further praise for his dramatic delivery.

Given his thriving acting career, it’s no wonder that the prolific actor has amassed an impressive array of properties amounting to well over $40 million — and that’s in the Los Angeles area alone!

With countless successful movies under his belt and a net worth of over $400 million, Sandler has been collecting prime properties all over the country, with purchases to grow his investments and others driven by matters of the heart.

That’s right, it turns out that the funnyman is quite the romantic! For proof, look no further than the actor’s main residence in L.A., bought specifically to make his wife happy.

His main residence in Los Angeles is a token of love for his wife, Jackie Sandler.

According to reports, Adam bought the house simply because his wife was in awe of the mansion, which was formerly owned by the legendary Hollywood couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

The Sandlers attended a New Year’s Eve party in the mansion back in 2004 and Jackie just fell in love with it. Without even seeing beyond the kitchen, Sandler snagged the property before it ever officially hit the market.

Adam explained that Erin, the wife of Goldie’s son, Oliver Hudson, is best friends with Jackie. They attended the New Year’s Eve party and he heard his wife longing for the house.

“I was sitting in the kitchen having a nice time and we were looking for a house and my wife was like, ‘I want this house’,” reports Express. “Goldie was selling it and I don’t like to look around too much and so I was like, ‘Alright, you want it, let’s get this one’.”

Adam then dropped a cool $12 million for the Pacific Palisades mansion — a grand gesture that his wife surely loved!

The sprawling mansion boasts 13,000 square feet of space, with 14 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.

The property was originally built in 1990 and sits on an exclusive street in the affluent neighborhood of Pacific Palisades, set about 20 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles.

The estate has a huge backyard that’s lined with tall trees and landscaping in all corners. Sandler also later purchased the adjoining 4-bedroom house, which is almost 4,000 square feet, bringing the total of the combined properties to about $28 million.

The expansive property boasts stunning outdoor amenities. There’s a pool, spa, and a sports area with a basketball court for Sandler, who loves shooting hoops with his famous friends. The massive backyard is also perfect for hosting guests and the Sandler’s extended family, who often stays with them.

As the mansion is located in an exclusive area, Adam and his family can enjoy the privacy that they need. Some of his famous neighbors include Steven Spielberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson.
