Larry King and his soon-to-be ex-wife Shawn Southwick listed their longtime Beverly Hills Flats mansion, less than two months after filing for divorce.

The property is on the market for $17 million, a 44% jump from the $11.8 million the couple paid, according to TMZ.

King — whose “Larry King Live” talk show ran for 25 years — and Southwick bought the 10,800-square-foot home in 2007, a decade after marrying. Kurt Rappaport, CEO of Westside Estate Agency, has the listing.

The elaborate Tuscan-style home has imported Italian limestone and Venetian plaster walls throughout the interiors, as well as ornate mouldings and other design accents in keeping with its Italian-inspired design.

The home has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a guesthouse in the backyard. The lot totals about half an acre.

Properties in the Flats fetch hefty sums. Last year, Cleveland Cavaliers co-owner Gary Gilbert dropped $27 million on a 12,500-square-foot home in the Flats. Not long after that, Viagogo CEO Eric Baker paid $23.5 million for a 10,000-square-foot manse in the neighborhood.

King filed for divorce in August, citing irreconcilable differences. Southwick, his seventh wife, said she doesn’t plan to fight it because of her 85-year-old husband’s recent health issues. [TMZ]Dennis Lynch
