The last residence of the late beloved “Jeopardy!” host entered into contract last week, according to The New York Post. It was last asking $7 million for the five-bedroom, 11 bathroom Mediterranean-style mansion in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The home — which Trebek commuted to and from Sony Picture Studios in Culver City for decades — was first put on the market Jan. 22.

Trebek, who died from stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2020 at 80 years old, initially bought the estate for $2.15 million in 1991.

Sources told the publication that Trebek’s wife, Jean, was ready to let go of the home she shared with her husband for years.

“She knew in order to ever move forward she would have to let go of the house” the source told the Post.

The 10,000-square-foot mansion was set in the hills of the Santa Monica Mountains and was equipped with a host of luxury amenities including a wet bar in gold and white, a 45-foot-long movie theater with red carpet and matching drapes, a library with a stone fireplace, and multiple balconies and verandas, according to the publication.

The mansion, which sat on 1.5 acres of land, also is accompanied by a detached one-bedroom, two-bath guest house.

The Post reported Jean Trebek, 58, has downsized to a smaller three-bedroom home in the same neighborhood.
