While most Hollywood celebs settle down in California or New York, Rosie O’Donnell made New Jersey her home when she purchased a massive English country mansion in 2013. However, the Rosie O’Donnell Show alum listed the home in July 2015, but it sat on the market for more than five years … until now!
Rosie finally sold the six-bedroom, nine-bathroom abode in March 2021. Per Page Six, an insider revealed the property was bought for $5.3 million. At the time the A League of Their Own actress moved into the dwelling, she paid $6.36 million.
The former View star’s residence — which sits on over five acres — is set to be demolished and turned into a series of affordable housing units, according to a landmark public court settlement with Fair Share Housing Center. Page Six reported the home will be converted into 60 units, 20 percent of which will be used for affordable housing.
According to the source, who is familiar with the proceedings, the “developer plans to segregate the units, instead of integrating them with the high-density multi-family housing.”
Though it’s only a matter of time until Rosie’s home is no longer standing, it’s no surprise she made plenty of good memories in the abode. In addition to the plethora of bedrooms and bathrooms, the mansion featured formal and living areas, as well as a dream-worthy kitchen.
The Now and Then star’s former living space was even more impressive as it boasted a full list of luxury amenities. Aside from having an entirely separate guesthouse with a master bedroom and en suite bathroom, Rosie’s house was fitted with a pub-style bar, a movie theater, an artist’s studio and a three-car garage.
The SMILF star’s backyard was just as captivating as the inside of the abode. There, you found an enviable pool with two private spa areas, rocks to jump off of and tons of space on the patio. Rosie’s home was an entertainment hotspot for her five kids — Parker, Chelsea, Blake, Vivienne and Dakota — as it also came with a basketball court, jungle gym and more.
The Flintstones actress loves spending time with her children, so the New Jersey dwelling was the perfect place to step back from the spotlight and enjoy her family. These days, however, Rosie resides in a luxury penthouse in New York City. Page Six reported the star purchased the four-bedroom, three-bathroom condo, which is located in Midtown, for $8 million in 2017.
