Will Ferrell's Homes
Will Ferrell is rather conservative in his taste in homes (at
least by celebrity standards). His New York City loft has been
featured in Architectural Digest and several home design magazines.
His east coast home that he shares with his art auctioneer wife
and their two boys is sophisticated and elegantly designed.
Will Ferrell's NYC Loft Bedroom
This apartment was once a printing shop. The 2600 square foot
apartment was gutted and renovated using as much original materials
as possible. The renovation took 3 years to complete but the space
has gotten the attention of quite a few national design and home
décor magazines. Of course this is not the funny man's
only home. He also maintains a home on the west coast.
West Coast Home
While Mr. Ferrell has made do with 2600 square feet of property
in New York his LA home is a bit larger. Formerly Ellen Degeneres'
house, Mr. Farrell purchased this home in 2006 for a cool $9,900,000.
Ms. Degeneres owned several homes in the area but the home that
Ferrell bought was the home that Ellen actually lived in.
This house is set on three lots with a little over two acres.
The home is a little over 4000 square feet. There are two additional
buildings. One is a recreation building and the other is an outdoor
living / dining room combination that is completely screened in.
The property is lovely and full of extras like a simply shaped
swimming pool and a play yard set that will rival any public playground.
The interior of the home is well designed and tastefully appointed.
Mr. Ferrell is a California native and has other homes on the
west coast but none as elegant and grand as this one.

Before the Fame
Before Will Ferrell made his millions, he owned a little house
on the west coast that was two bedrooms with a single bathroom.
He also owned a smaller apartment in NYC which was one of his
first big buys when he made a name for himself on Saturday Night
His apartment on the Upper East Side was a far cry from the over
the top homes he has now. When he sold the apartment he made a
handsome profit thanks to his famous name.
It is estimated that Will Ferrell's net worth is around $85 million.
But oddly enough he lives a very quiet life with his wife and
two kids. While many celebrities own three four or more homes
Mr. Ferrell seems completely satisfied with his two bi-coastal
properties. He does not own a vacation home and he does not own
any homes in any far flung places. He just lives simply (by celebrity
standards) and has his two homes.
Both the properties are not pretentious in any way. Of course
his California digs are rather sprawling but his New York apartment
is large by NYC standards but not Donald Trump large by any means.
