Heeeeeeere’s Ed McMahon’s former home, now on the market for $22.5 million.

The half-acre compound in Hermosa Beach contains a nearly 6,000-square-foot main residence with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and two half-baths. A detached guest house over the garage has two more bedrooms and bathrooms.

The main house features a media room, “vintage Irish pub,” formal dining room, kitchen and service kitchen, and an open floor plan, according to marketing materials.

Outside, there’s another bar, a gazebo, a saltwater pool, multiple fire features and a detached wine cellar that holds 1,000 bottles of wine. The guest house, which has its own private deck, has another wine cellar.

The property last traded hands for $5 million in 2009, according to property records.

Tristy Patterson of Re/Max has the listing. She did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Since it was sold, the house underwent extensive renovations, according to a local agent not connected to the listing.

“The property was significantly upgraded, virtually rebuilt,” the agent said. “But this is also a special listing because of the size of the land and its proximity to the beach.”
McMahon, known for his role as the trusty sidekick to Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show between 1962 and 1992, died in 2009. He starred in films such as “Fun with Dick and Jane” and “Bewitched.”
