Public records have cleared on the amount that comedian Norm Macdonald paid recently for his two-bedroom condominium unit in Santa Monica, Calif., and they reveal that the wiseacre paid $1,750,000 for his new second-floor unit.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the amount that Macdonald, 45, paid through his trust on May 22 for the unit (with the deal being recorded on June 13). We had written about Macdonald's purchase back on July 30, but did so not knowing his exact purchase price; the Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff, who previously had broken the story of the purchase, had reported that Macdonald had paid $1.8 million for the unit.


The unit, which had been listed for $1,895,000, has either 1,630 square feet, according to public records, or 2,000 square feet, according to listing information. Features include two baths, walls of glass, white concrete floors, two large terraces, and 14-foot-high ceilings, according to listing information.

Macdonald continues to own a third-floor, 1,680-square-foot condo unit in Beverly Hills, Calif., which he purchased in late 2002 for an undisclosed amount.
