Colin Cowherd is a sports media personality best known as the host of The Herd with Colin Cowherd on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports Radio. Until 2015, Cowherd worked for ESPN on various television and radio shows but was suspended for remarks about basketball players from the Dominican Republic. However, it did not end his successful career as he moved to Fox. In 2015, Cowherd signed a deal with Fox worth $6 million a year over a four-year period. Fox extended the contract for a further four years at $6 million a year in 2019. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Colin Cowherd’s net worth is now $25 million. With cash in the bank and a lucrative career, it seems that Colin Cowherd has decided to splash the cash a little, and his spending spree has involved buying two properties in California. His first purchase was a six-bedroom, ocean-side home in the affluent neighborhood of Manhattan Beach. Records show that he paid $6.9 million on the Craftsman-style property. Almost as soon as he completed that deal, Cowherd bought a second California estate, for which he also paid $6.9 million. So, let’s have a look at the sports broadcasting personality’s most recent real estate purchase.
An Overview of Colin Cowherd’s Latest Purchase
Cowherd’s latest real estate purchase is a five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom house that measures 6,713-square-feet. It sits on a lot of 0.27 acres and is located along a leafy street in the prestigious Brentwood area of Los Angeles. However, the traditional style of the 2005 property means it would look more at home in Nantucket than in an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood. It is surrounded by white picket fencing, gray shingle cladding, and a weathervane atop a small cupola.
Inside Cowherd’s New Brentwood Home
The downstairs of Cowherd’s property is split-level, so there are steps leading to each room from the large foyer. From the foyer, there is also a staircase leading to the second story. White walls and dark wooden flooring are features that run throughout the house’s lower level. Flanking the foyer on either side are the main living room and the formal dining room. In the main living room, the main focal point is the white fireplace around which the furniture is arranged. However, the large windows are also an impressive feature of this room, and they flood the living area with light. The formal dining room is decorated in a traditional style to the other side of the foyer, with white paneling to the lower walls, beige paint to the upper walls, and a wooden table surrounded by eight blue plush chairs.
Another room on the lower level is dual purpose, as one end of the room is a den, while the other is an informal dining space. At the den end of the room, a marble fireplace is topped with a wall-mounted television, and double doors lead out to the terrace at the rear of the property. The dining area has an eight-seater, circular dining area at the center of the room, and a cushioned window seat offers additional seating. The den and informal dining area lead straight through to the open-plan kitchen and then onto a pantry. The kitchen has white cabinetry, white marble countertops, and stainless steel appliances. This area is separated from the informal dining room by a large, wood-topped central island, says Dirt.com.
A different color scheme is employed in the pantry, which has cornflower blue cabinets for extra storage. The pantry has a staircase leading to a second-floor games room. Cowherd also has several more rooms to enjoy on the lower story of his Brentwood home. These include a home office/ library, a sunroom, and a wine cellar. There are five bedrooms in this property, all located on the second story, except for the master suite on the lower story. The master suite is a sumptuous space with its own fireplace, and a private sitting area is partially divided from the bedroom, with seating by the large windows. A relaxing gray is the chosen color scheme for this room, and there are spotlights on the white ceiling. The master suite has a stunning ensuite, with neutral cabinetry, marble countertops, a sunken bath, and brass fittings. There is also a dressing room as part of the master suite, with glass doors, dark wooden flooring, gray walls, and white cabinetry.
The Exterior of the Property
To the front of the gray, shingle-clad home, a white picket fence separates the property from the sidewalk. A stone pathway is lined by manicured lawns and leads to the pillared entranceway of the house. To the right of the lawns, a driveway leads to an attached, two-car garage. The front garden is separated from the neighboring properties by high hedges. Other than the gray shingle cladding, some of the two-story property’s external features include gray slate roofs, white windows, stone chimneys, and a cupola above the entranceway. There are also small hedges, plants, and shrubs in a border to the front of the house. At the rear, the garden is split into two areas. Directly behind the house, there is a terrace with stone paving, and a section of the terrace is partially covered, giving the option to sit in the shade. The terrace is set up with outdoor settees, a wooden coffee table, a dining area, and a stylish firepit. Therefore, there are plenty of relaxing, dining, and socializing options, even on cooler evenings. Beyond the terrace, there is a large, outdoor swimming pool with water jets. To one side of the pool is an area set up with sun loungers, and two sides are lined with thin strips of lawn. Tall hedges enclose the rear garden for privacy from neighboring houses.
