The longtime “Tonight Show” host, who died in 2005 at 79, bought the Point Dume estate in 1984 for about $9.5 million, the Los Angeles Times previously reported, and owned the property for more than two decades. The Kimmels acquired the home and two adjacent parcels from Carson’s widow, Alexis, in 2007 for about $46 million.
The estate, on a bluff of slightly more than 4 acres, centers on a modern showplace designed and built in 1978 by Malibu architect Ed Niles. Its 7,083 square feet include a living room with a copper-and-glass sunken fireplace, an updated kitchen, a media room and a wine cellar. A 30-foot-high glass ceiling filters natural light in the indoor arboretum.
