It may have taken more than six months, but James Corden has finally sold his LA mansion.

The comedian just sold his Brentwood Park estate to the daughter of a Hong Kong private equity billionaire for $17.1 million.

It was $5 million less than he wanted, but it was an all-cash deal.

The deal’s pretty good considering the discounted price is still way more than the $10 million Corden paid for the house back in 2017.

But selling it proved tricky. 

Corden first listed his home for $22 million in fall last year as a private pocket listing, without hitting the public market.

But for the first three months he didn’t get a bite, so lowered the asking price to $18 million.

It was then that the property caught the attention of LeeAnn Akouri-Shan, who put in an all-cash offer.

It’s little wonder she wanted to snap it up, as the 8,600-square-foot property has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and sits on nearly a half-acre lot.

No part of the residence is visible from the street, as the entire estate is cloaked behind gates and a massively overgrown hedge.

Beyond those fortifications, a long driveway curves past a tree-shaded front lawn on its way up to the house.

There’s even a three-car attached garage topped by a basketball hoop for convenient practice sessions.

Step inside and there’s a fireplace-equipped living room, an eat-in kitchen with marble countertops, and a library.

For film buffs, the house also comes with a movie theater that seats 20.

The property also comes with a large family room that opens up onto the garden.

A pool, pergola and private gazebo are featured prominently in the backyard, which also has plenty of space for outdoor activities.

Upstairs, the home’s master bedroom has a private balcony, a lounge area, and two bathrooms.

Although Akouri-Shan can likely afford just about any house she wants, it’s not surprising she was interested in this particular property.

The high-hedged property happens to back directly onto a $20 million estate her older brother Bo Shan bought back in 2019 from ‘Million Dollar Listing’ star Tracy Tutor.

As for Corden, the ‘Late Late Show’ has officially folded and thus the comedian has relocated back to his native U.K. with Julia and their three children.
