Earlier this year, Rosie O’Donnell almost purchased a Palm Beach property owned by Olivia Newton-John and even put an offer on the mansion. But after there was a suicide on the property, O’Donnell backed out of the deal and began her Florida real estate search anew (sources say Newton-John even had an exorcism done to appease O’Donnell, to no avail).
The former “The View” co-host, comedian and actress has since closed on a home in Nokomis, just down the road from horror author Stephen King. The price tag: a sizable $5 million.
O’Donnell’s new home sits right on the Gulf of Mexico, with beach access straight out the back door. Its design makes the most of Florida’s amazing weather, with an indoor-outdoor floor plan, including several patios and decks, a full outdoor kitchen with a barbecue and bar area. And outdoor flat-screen TV? Check.
The home, built in 1998, measures 4,647 square feet and was fully remodeled in 2009.
