Film producer Sidney Kimmel and his wife, Caroline, listed their Malibu home on Wildlife Road – formerly owned by famous “Tonight Show” host Johnny Carson – for $81.5 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The oceanfront estate, designed by notable architect Ed Niles in 1978, spans 7,000 square feet. An indoor arboretum, gym, locker room, koi pond and guest house are included on the site.

A tennis court featuring a bench from Wimbledon sits on the four acres of land.

Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker and Linda May of Hilton & Hyland have the listing.

Comedy legend Johnny Carson, who passed away in 2005 at the age of 79, owned the home for over two decades. He bought the estate in 1984 for $9.5 million, the Los Angeles Times previously reported.

The Kimmels acquired the site, along with two contiguous parcels from Carson’s widow, Alexis, in 2007 for about $46 million, records show.
