Beloved “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek died in November 2020 at the age of 80 after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. And while his memory lives on, changes are afoot with the final home where he lived with his wife for 30 years and raised three kids: Trebek’s heirs have decided to list the gated estate near Los Angeles for $6,995,000.
According to the listing, Trebek paid a mere $2.15 million for the five-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom property in Studio City in 1991. Another fun fact: His daughter, Emily Trebek, is the listing agent for the house, along with Renee Ogiens at Compass.
So, will this sprawling 1.45-acre property sell for nearly $7 million? Sure! The Trebeks cut the price on their 30-acre retreat on Lake Nacimiento in Paso Robles, CA, by more than $200,000 in 2019, which just proves that, when it comes to the price of real estate, no one always has the right answer.
