Dr. Phil McGraw has added to his real estate empire, paying $2,560,000 for a 2,356-square-foot, contemporary-style house in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills. In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Dr. Phil’s purchase of the two-bedroom house in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills. Records show that Dr. Phil closed on the purchase on March 4, with the deal being recorded on March 13. Built in 2001, Dr. Phil’s latest piece of real estate has three baths and sits on a minuscule, 0.1-acre lot, according to public records. Features in the house include curved walls, floating stairs, substantially open living and dining areas, a private patio and a pool, according to listing information. Other features include an upper level with a master suite with a wall of closets, a private deck and a fireplace, according to listing information. The house’s second bedroom has a bath and a rooftop deck as well. The house had been listed for $2,695,000. We’re not sure what Dr. Phil’s intended use is for the house, since his principal southern California residence is of course his 11,036-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif., which he purchased through his Peteski Productions company in late 2002 for about $7.5 million in cash. However, as we have noted many times in the past, Dr. Phil has owned other houses in the Los Angeles area as homes for his children. These have included a mod house at 9304 Warbler Way in the “Bird Streets” area of the Hollywood Hills, which Dr. Phil had bought for his son Jay and which Dr. Phil had sold last year for $3,200,000. Dr. Phil also owns a 6,170-square-foot house in the Beverly Hills post office that he purchased in early 2007 for an undisclosed price, according to public records. In addition, Dr. Phil’s new acquisition is directly across the street from another house that we have discussed, just last month: the four-bedroom, 4,126-square-foot house in the Hollywood Hills that actress Khandi Alexander has on the market for $4,495,000.
