Matthew Perry sold two enormous mansions in the years before his death
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Matthew Perry downsized in the years prior to his death, selling two enormous mansions and relocating to a much smaller residence for himself.
Perry was discovered dead over the weekend at his Pacific Palisades, California, home following what seemed to be a drowning. The 'Friends' star was found in the jacuzzi on the property.
Matthew Perry's real estate downszing
The actor bought the 3,000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom house during the pandemic in 2020 for $6M, as reported by Radar Online.
Perry lowered the asking price on his enormous 9,290-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom, and 3-½-bathroom penthouse condo in The Century building in Century City, Los Angeles, months before he bought the house.
The skyscraper included valet parking, a 24-hour concierge, and a slew of other opulent features. Perry reduced the asking price of the house from $35 million to $27 million in 2019. In June 2021, the pad was eventually sold for $21 million.
Perry also had a 5,500-square-foot, four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom beachfront home in Malibu in addition to the penthouse. In 2011, he paid $12 million for the house, but in 2021, he sold it for $13.1 million.

First responders were summoned to Perry's residence over the weekend in response to a possible cardiac arrest call. Perry had several prescription bottles, but no illegal narcotics were discovered at the scene, according to law enforcement sources.
Perry took anxiety and depression medications. Police also discovered a medication intended to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The medication is often prescribed to patients with emphysema or chronic bronchitis. Perry was a compulsive smoker throughout his life.
