Arsenio Hall Privately Sells His $9M Home of 30 Years, Months After Temporary Return to Late-Night TV

Less than a year after purchasing a six-bedroom mansion in Tarzana, Los Angeles, television personality and producer Arsenio Hall has sold his sprawling rural estate for $9 million. A home he had for 30 years.

Records indicate that Hall never listed the home on the market, but the estate, which sits on a hilltop in unincorporated Topanga, was sold to his neighbor, Robert M. Fedoris, an executive at Franklin Monroe. The move is not a distant one for Fedoris and his long-term partner, Liz Hopkins; they have lived in a 3,000-square-foot home directly across from Hall. 

A Look At Hall’s Fortune

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Hall is worth an estimated $20 million. His fortune was amassed not only as a result of his work as a comedian, television host, actor and producer, but also from his real estate investments, which include purchasing his Topanga estate in 1990, for $3 million and a mansion in Los Angeles for $5.2 million.

Hall began his career in 1984, when he became a sidekick for Alan Thicke on the talk show “Thicke of the Night.” In 1988, became an interim host of “The Late Show” on FOX, which was launched to compete with “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.” Although the show was canceled in 1988, Hall was not to be forgotten. That year, he starred in “Coming to America” and inked a deal for “The Arsenio Hall Show.” When the talk show debuted in 1989, it became a nationally syndicated show that was popular among younger viewers. The show aired for five years before ending in 1994. Hall lived a quiet life for many years before resurfacing in 2012, to be featured on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Hall won the popular contest, donating $250,000 to the Magic Johnson Foundation. He rebooted “The Arsenio Hall Show” in 2013, on CBS, with the show running for one year. In addition, Hall appeared in the sequel of “Coming to America” in 2019.

Inside The Topanga Estate 

According to Dirt, the sale of the Topanga property was a large sum for Topanga. Realtor shows the median sale price for a home in the area to be $1.3 million. Topanga is a secluded community located in the mountains between Malibu and the San Fernando Valley. However, Hall’s property was one of the largest estates in the area. Spanning more than 34 acres, the compound included a main mansion with more than 10,000 square feet. The estate was built over several years in the 1990s, shortly after Hall’s late-night talk show entered syndication. 

As a result of the property never being listed on the market, the estate is a mystery to many. However, aerial views and tax records reveal that the property includes six parcels of land bordering state-owned parkland. Additionally, the estate’s hilltop provides 360-degree views of city lights, the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains. Surrounded by a barbed-wire fence and several surveillance cameras, visitors enter from two gated driveways with space available for several cars. 

The main house is inspired by Sante Fe-style homes. There are two additional buildings on the premises. The exterior of the home includes grassy lawns, hiking trails and a pond, as well as putting greens, a playground for children and a full-sized tennis court.
