Andrew Alexander, who co-owns the Second City improvisational comedy troupe in Chicago and who has developed and executive produced various TV comedy programs over the last three decades, has paid $1,395,000 for a house in Beverly Hills, Calif.'s postal region. In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the purchase of the house on Cedarbrook Drive in Beverly Hills' post office by Alexander. Records show that the deal closed on April 9, with the transaction being recorded on April 25. Built in 1953, Alexander's new house sits on a 0.35-acre lot, according to public records. The house has two bedrooms (although public records say that it has just one) and two baths and is located on a cul-de-sac just off Coldwater Canyon Drive. The house had been on the market for $1,495,000. Billed by its listing agent as 'East Hampton meets Malibu in BHPO,' Alexander's new house also has rich ebony floors, Carrera marble baths, Waterworks fixtures, and a gourmet kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator and custom millwork, according to listing information. Other features include an entertainment deck, wraparound lush patios and canyon views, according to listing information. Alexander's new house is just a few blocks away from many other celebrities' houses, including (but hardly limited to) Bill Maher (whose Odie Trust owns the 4,162-square-foot house at 9542 Cherokee Lane and the 3,693-square-foot house at 9500 Cherokee Lane that Ben Affleck used to own); actor Aaron Eckhart, who purchased a 3,016-square-foot house at 2320 Gloaming Way in 2002; former Secretary of State Warren Christopher, who has been trying to sell his house at 1701 Coldwater Canyon Drive / 1299 Monte Cielo Court for $3,259,000; funnyman Jack Black, who owns the house at 1735 Monte Cielo Court; and actor John O'Hurley, who has been trying to sell his 5,391-square-foot house at 1710 Monte Cielo Court. Alexander's principal residence back in Chicago is a 3,600-square-foot house on Orchard Street in the city's Lincoln Park neighborhood, which he purchased in 2004 for $2,250,000, according to public records.
