Kirstie Alley's sprawling mansion in Clearwater, Florida has been officially sold for $5.2 million, after it was initially listed for $5.95 million earlier this year in February. The late Cheers actress passed away secretly in December 2022 at the age of 71, following a battle with colon cancer. The impressive estate, which boasts nine bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and a heated swimming pool in its spacious backyard, was confirmed to have been sold by Realtor.com.
Purchased by Kirstie Alley in 2000 for $1.5 million, the 7,185 square foot mansion was previously owned by the late Lisa Marie Presley, who also happened to be a Scientologist, as was Alley. The property features a 60-foot dock, a separate guest house, three levels, three balconies, and a front courtyard with a fireplace, providing ample space and privacy for the residents.
Before her passing, Alley received treatment for colon cancer at the nearby Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa. Clearwater, the city where the mansion is located, has been the spiritual home of Scientology since 1975, with Alley and Presley both being associated with the controversial religion.
Alley's children, William and Lillie, announced their mother's death on her social media pages on December 5, 2022. They expressed gratitude towards the Moffit Cancer Center for their care and described Alley as an amazing mother and grandmother who had a passion for life and creating. Fellow celebrities, including John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis, paid tribute to Alley on social media, remembering her as a special and talented individual.
Kirstie Alley's remains were cremated after her passing, according to a death certificate obtained by Us Weekly. The actress rose to fame through her role as Rebecca Howe in the popular NBC series Cheers, for which she won an Emmy. She also had notable appearances in films such as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, For Richer or Poorer, and Drop Dead Gorgeous.
In addition to her acting career, Alley was a spokesperson for Jenny Craig, successfully losing weight with their program. She also appeared in Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens and was previously married to Bob Alley and actor Parker Stevenson. Alley leaves behind a legacy of talent and a beloved mansion that has found a new owner.
