When funnyman Harvey Korman wasn’t busy entertaining moviegoers, he was often hosting parties for his celebrity friends at his Bel Air home on Stradella Road. But the estate of the late actor and his wife, Deborah, has a new owner to entertain.

The Mediterranean-style property has been scooped up by a developer for $13.9 million, or $1 million under its asking price of $14.9 million, The Real Deal has learned.  

The estimated 6,600-square-foot home sits on more than two acres and has six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Built in 1976, the property has a gated motor court for up to 20 cars and a lighted tennis court.

The estate is less than two blocks away from developer Nile Niami’s $500 million spec home that’s currently under construction.

Listing details offer renderings by architect William Hefner that includes a more than 17,000-square-foot home with nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It’s unclear if the buyer will follow the proposed designs.

Marc Noah and Victoria Risko of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing. The brokers could not be reached for comment.

Kate Farmanara of Exclusive Realty Inc. represented the buyer, according to Redfin.

Korman’s wife told the Wall Street Journal in November 2016 that she was selling the home to move closer to her children and grandchild.

Korman, who starred in hit movies like “Blazing Saddles” and “High Anxiety,” rose to fame by playing outlandish characters on “The Carol Burnett Show.”

The Emmy-winning actor died in May 2008 at 81.
