PICS: Homer Simpson Sells Home to Apu for $5.5m

Posted by & filed under Bed Beach and Beyond, Photo Gallery, SFW.

Homer Simpson/Krusty/Groundskeeper Willie/Mayor Quimby (a.k.a. Dan Castellaneta) has sold the property he and his wife share in the Pacific Palisades (between Santa Monica and Malibu, for you out-of-towners) to Apu/Moe/Chief Wiggum (a.k.a. Hank Azaria) for $5.5 million.

Azaria has a new show on the air (“Free Agents”) while “The Simpsons” looks set to get its own cable channel, all Simpsons all the time, so the new checks will mix with the royalty checks for a long, long time to come.

Lauren Beale at The L.A. Times reports that Azaria recently sold his 9,000 sq.ft. (7BR, 10BA) Bel Air mansion earlier this month for more than $11m and is, by definition, downsizing to the 4BR, 3 1/2BA Tudor residence that comes in at 4,414 square feet on a half acre of gardens that include a saltwater pool.

celebritynetworth.com estimates Castellaneta’s net worth at about $60 million. The actor’s previous home on San Lorenzo St in Santa Monica (3,891 sq.ft.) sold in 2008 for $3.3 million.
