The “American Idol” host and television producer first listed the home in 2010 for $14.95 million. When it did not sell, Seacrest took it off the market for a year before relisting it recently for $11.985 million.
Not that Seacrest has had a lot of time to worry about the ups and downs of the market. In addition to everything else the amiable frontman does in Hollywood, he’s recently been added to the Olympic coverage team for NBC. The gig will take him to London for the 2012 Summer Games and add a few more dollars to his eye-popping annual income of $40 million. According to Forbes, Seacrest — in a 1:1 comparison — rakes in more than Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt.

Seacrest’s home has some deep Hollywood pedigree. It was previously owned by Kevin Costner, from whom Seacrest purchased the home for $11.5 million in April 2006. The Mediterranean mansion has been featured in “Architectural Digest” and was decorated by famed designer Jeff Andrews.
Property records show that the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 8,172-square foot home in Hollywood Hills is certainly up to celebrity standards with posh amenities such as a swimming pool, guest house, detached garage, tennis courts, Los Angeles views and peaceful gardens.
