Actor Jim Carrey is leaving LA after nearly 30 years in the same Bentwood home.
Having emigrated from Canada in the eighties, Carrey eventually landed his big break in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and bought the palatial pad soon just before the film’s release.
Referencing the iconic song by David Bowie, the Bruce Almighty star said that he was ready for ‘Cha cha cha cha…Changes!’.
However, many fans have been wondering why Carrey would ever leave the stunning setting, which is worth a reported $28.9 million (£23.7m).
Bought by the Batman Forever actor for just over $3 million (£2.46m) in 1994, the property has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and spans over two acres.
In fact, the master bedroom could essentially be used as a flat, as it has its own bathroom, fireplace and balcony to survey everything you own.
The kitchen has a huge space for cooking as well as a separate dining and breakfast room, which opens onto the garden.
The rest of the house is equally impressive, as there’s even a movie theatre where the actor keeps costumes from some of his best-loved roles - such as the Santa suit from The Grinch.
The property also has multiple living rooms, a gym and an office – so working from home shouldn’t be an issue as long as you don’t get too distracted!
For those keen on getting outdoors, the ranch also has a tennis court, a waterfall pool and a sauna within the extensive gardens.
Whilst most of us would never want to leave, Carrey has been slowly moving away from California in recent years.
He sold another property in Malibu back in 2013 and has yet to confirm whether he will remain in the county.
In a statement to The Post about the move, he added: “For three decades it’s been a sanctuary for me but I don’t spend a lot of time there now and I want someone else to enjoy it like I have.”
He also gave a statement to the Wall Street Journal, which was the first to report the move.
Calling it a place of ‘enchantment and inspiration’, the 61-year-old said that he’d spent ‘30 very creative and prosperous years’ at his former home.
In a suitably silly follow-up, the comedian spoke about his time at the property and said: “Every night the owls sang me lullabies and every morning I sipped my cup of joe with the hawks and hummingbirds, under a giant grandfather pine.”
