Not long after backing out of a Palm Beach house purchase, comedienne Rosie O’Donnell has picked up a 4,647-square-foot beachfront home on the barrier island of Casey Key, near Sarasota, for $5 million.

The four-bedroom, seven-bathroom house features French oak floors, custom-built cabinetry, Sub-Zero wine coolers and two dishwashers. There is also a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and a covered boat slip for a 36-foot-long boat at a nearby marina.

The sellers, William and Donna Brian, bought the property in 2005 for $4.6 million and renovated it four years later, the Wall Street Journal reported. Tom Hedge Jr. and Monica Barth of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty represented the couple in the deal, while Jill Friedman and Kevin Vale of Coldwell Banker represented O’Donnell.

O’Donnell had signed a contract in August to buy a Jupiter Inlet Colony mansion from “Grease” star Olivia Newton-John for $5.5 million. But shortly after a contractor committed suicide inside the house, O’Donnell backed out of the deal, as previously reported.

Earlier in the year, O’Donnell sold her house on Star Island in Miami Beach for $16.5 million. [WSJ]Mark Maurer
