Michelle Pfeiffer’s Pacific Palisades home sells for $25 million

4

Michelle Pfeiffer wasn’t kitten around when she got into flipping houses.

Pfeiffer — often remembered, and revered, for playing Catwoman opposite Michael Keaton in 1992’s “Batman Returns” — sold her Pacific Palisades mansion for $25 million after less than a month on the market.

The 63-year-old “Scarface” actress purchased the 10,330-square-foot home for $22.25 million in January 2020, according to property records, and owned it for only a year and a half.

She and her husband, TV series visionary David Kelley, are frequent real estate investors — they sold properties for $22 million in 2019 and $9 million in January 2020.

The buyer of the 7-bedroom, 10½-bathroom “Napoli House” has not been revealed, and the transaction has not yet hit property records.

Designed by architect Steve Giannetti in 2019, this European countryside-style home has exposed ceiling beams, pocket doors, floor-to-ceiling fireplaces, balconies, arched doorways and luxury finishes, according to Realtor.com.

The “French Exit,” “Ant Man” and “The Wizard of Lies” actress has two children, adopted 28-year-old daughter Claudia Rose Pfeiffer and 27-year-old biological son John Henry Kelley. Her sister, Dedee Pfeiffer, stars in ABC’s “Big Sky.”

Vance Joy paid tribute to the Oscar-nominated actress in his 2013 song “Riptide,” singing, “I swear she’s destined for the screen, Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you’ve ever seen.” Just one year later, Bruno Mars also name-dropped her in his dance hit “Uptown Funk,” which she called “very cool” if “a little embarrassing at times.”
