Conan O’Brien and his wife, Liza Powel O’Brien, are selling their beach property in Carpinteria, CA, according to the website Dirt.

They’re asking for $16.5 million for the two-building compound located about 1.5 hours north of Los Angeles.

The couple picked up the seriously nice spread in 2015 for $7.9 million and remodeled it “down to the studs,” the listing notes. The extensive work they did likely explains the hefty markup.

The beachside main home was built in 1957 and measures 2,142 square feet. It comes with 50 feet of beach frontage and newly redone interiors, including a great room with white oak flooring, a fireplace, and glass doors that open to a spacious deck.

The two bedrooms, each with shutters and a wall of glass, open to a balcony and one bath.



The spacious deck features a built-in barbecue, seating area, and dining space. There are stairs that go to the sand.

Below the main house, there’s a room that can be used as a playroom or a gym. It includes a large-screen TV, laundry room, changing room with a shower, and surfboard or paddleboard storage.

A detached guesthouse has two separate sleeping options: A one-bedroom with a wraparound deck is located above the two-car garage, and a lower-level, one-bedroom guest suite features garden views.

A four-car garage with a Tesla charging station completes the property. The half-acre grounds boast tropical landscaping as well as abundant off-street parking.

Conan, a Harvard grad, got his start writing for “The Simpsons” and “Saturday Night Live.” He then landed his own talk show, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” on NBC in 1993. After an infamous and short run as the “Tonight Show” host, he moved to TBS with “Conan,” which ended in 2021.

Recently, he launched the “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” podcast in addition to other shows on his Team Coco podcast network.

This spring, Sirius XM bought the podcast and his digital media business for a reported $150 million.
