Inside James Corden’s dream $10 million Los Angeles home

James Corden has finally moved into his dream home in Los Angeles – just in time for Christmas. 

Corden has moved wife Julia and their three children, into the luxury $10million mansion in Brentwood. 

Julia, 37, and Corden, 39, who married in 2012, are parents to Max, six, and Carey, three and a new daughter born on December 12, whose name is yet to be announced.

Renovations at the family’s new home have been on going for months and workers are still adding the final touches. 

DailyMail.com’s exclusive photos of the property show that the TV star has made sure his home is decked out with Christmas decorations to help his family get in the festive mood. 

Locals say they’ve seen dozens of workmen carrying out the renovations on both levels of the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom property. 

Ready for Christmas: James Corden has finished almost all the work on his new Brentwood home in time for his family to celebrate – and enjoy the arrival of his new daughter earlier this month

It is understood Corden has had his own designer office installed with upgraded computer installations, edit suite and communications systems. 

Outside landscapers have redone the back garden and workers have torn up the front driveway and replaced it with drought resistant grass.

Neighbors are delighted that the builders and contractors are finished and have removed a giant unsightly rubbish cart, which was parked outside the property for months.

Corden, host of the Late Late Show on CBS, had hoped, bought the home in the spring and hoped all the work would be done in time for his family to enjoy Christmas there. 

His wife Julia supervised the move from their rented home in Pacific Palisades while pregnant. The couple first looked at the property a year ago but only decided to buy it in February for $9,770,000.

The original asking price was $10,995,000. The New England Traditional is set in half an acre of land. 

Realtors likened it to a ‘charming English home and garden’ and boasted of its ‘timeless architecture, large front & rear gardens, perfect floor plan with over 8,600 sq ft of living area.’ 

The house has a wood-paneled library and a great room, a cook’s kitchen, breakfast area and family room which has French doors to the garden.

At the rear the house has a trellis-covered patio, dining pergola, large lawn, pool and spa, firepit and built-in barbecue. 

Upstairs the master suite’ boasts a sitting area, two bathrooms and enormous walk-in closets. Other spaces include a large upstairs family room, basement media room and gym that opens to the garden. 

Brentwood is one of Los Angeles’ most desirable neighborhoods with Hollywood stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Cindy Crawford, Harrison Ford and Steven Speilberg all owning property there.

For the Cordens, one key attraction is the proximity to local schools regarded as some of the best in the county. 

The home is also very convenient for Corden’s daily drive to work at CBS Studios in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. With light traffic he is just 20 minutes away. 

Corden is riding high thanks to his TV chat show which earns him $3m annually in a five year deal which he is half-way through. He is also earning millions from selling franchises of Carpool Karaoke and Drop The Mic to online and TV networks and some lucrative advertising endorsements.

The star was spotted on Wednesday with his children at a rock climbing class at Sender City, near LAX airport. He publicly has said that he has no idea whether he will remain in Los Angeles, but his purchase and extensive renovations seem to indicate he is in for the long haul. 

One local, who asked not to be named, told DailyMail.com: ‘The family has now moved into their home which is wonderful. ‘We used to see them visit while the renovations were carried out, but now they are there full time. 

‘There was a lot of workers coming in and out of the place for months seemingly rushing to finish so that the family could move in. 

‘The home was very pretty before, but now it is really beautiful especially with the Christmas decorations up. It’s a great neighborhood and it will be a really fun time for the family over the holiday.’
