There is something so captivating about Denzel Washington, and we’re not even talking about Denzel Washington house. It’s his perfect smile, the way he carries himself as the picture of masculinity, morality, and strength. He has taken on roles that allow him to express that inner morality in a way that makes us want to be like him, and in a way, I think that’s why he has been so successful! He has won award after award because he is so human that we can all relate to the roles he plays. I don’t see Denzel going anywhere any time soon!
Where does Denzel Washington live?
There has sometimes been a little bit of confusion about Denzel and his family’s living situation. He has two homes, one in Los Angeles and one in New York. There’s 3d that has some folks confused, but we’ll get to that later. His homes are both in the most coveted and private areas in their respective locations and have amenities worthy of his A-List status!
Denzel Washington House Beverly Hills
This house is fit for a king. Sitting on 2.13 acres and featuring a pool, a tennis court, and even a beautiful fountain. This beautiful home in the Los Angeles area is stocked with 8 bedrooms and 14, you heard me, 14 bathrooms!
Denzel bought the home from Michael Eisner, who used to be the Chief Executive Officer of the Walt Disney Company. He paid $2.675 million for the home way back in 1992. Considering the size – 8 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms situated within it’s28,887-square-feet – that was a steal! Zillow estimates it’s value at over $80 million while the LA County property records suggest it’s closer to $16.5 million. Either way, it’s worth a lot!
Another fabulous thing about this home near the world-famous Mulholland Drive is that it is literally covered in trees, so even though he’s surrounded by rich and famous neighbors including Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone, and Mark Wahlberg, he’s got all the privacy of a wooded estate.
At the center of the Beverly Park gated community is a 4-acre park, which is an added bonus, but who the heck needs it when you’ve got so much room to run on your own property?
Denzel Washington House New York
Denzel’s apartment building in New York is anything but ordinary. The Independent reports that it took about a billion dollars to construct the limestone building and, although to me it looks like another high-rise in a sea of high-rises, it’s so high-end luxury that the wealthiest in The Big Apple have decided to call this place home.
In 2006, for $13 million, Denzel Washington and his family purchased a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom apartment on Central Park West. I can’t even fathom it, but at 3,000 square feet, it’s bigger than most people’s houses!
Tucked inside this 20s-inspired condo are a private restaurant, health center, showroom, private chefs, interior courtyard, marble columns in the lobby, and a lap pool. It’s no wonder, then, that among the tenants are big names like Sting, Jeff Gordon, a host of CEOs, and business execs with piles of money.
Denzel Washington House Toluca Lake
Before he lived among the mega-wealthy in Beverly Park, Denzel lived in Toluca Lake, CA. In 1988 he paid $1.1 million for the charming traditional home. It measures up at6,334-square-feet with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
In 2000, Denzel sold the home to Brenda Hampton, the iconic TV writer with credits including 7th Heaven and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, for $1.9 million. Brenda went on the sell the home 19 years later, in May 2019, for $4.445 million.
Fun fact: The home was actually where Ronald & Nancy Reagan held their 1952 wedding reception!
Denzel Washington Fisher House
So, there is a ton of confusion about this one. Fisher House is not a home of Denzel, yet an organization that he has funded.
One of the many things that makes me swoon when I think of Denzel is his commitment to helping veterans. His donation to the Fisher House was reportedly the largest in the foundation’s history and came after Denzel and his wife visited the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
The Fisher House Foundation provides housing close to military medical centers so that the families of those staying in the hospital can be nearby with low-cost living accommodations.
Although they didn’t specify how their funds were to be used, after their generous donation to the foundation, the couple accepted an offer to sit on the board of trustees.
Who is Denzel Washington Married Too
Denzel may be a huge sex symbol, but I regret to inform you all that he is not on the market. But who is Denzel Washington wife? He and Pauletta married in 1983 and are probably the cutest couple ever. They met on the set of Wilma, a TV show they were both starring in, and the rest is history.
Though it has probably not been an easy road, the two are going strong after 36 years, and even renewed their vows in a cute ceremony with Desmond Tutu officiating in South Africa.
I mean, they’ve come through a lot! Not every marriage can withstand not one, but two acting careers–and they’ve also raised four children, two of whom are twins. Those terrible-twos aren’t for the weak-hearted.
Pauletta Washington is a stunningly gorgeous woman, a talented actor, and I think Denzel did well with her–I hope to see the couple smiling together and holding hands on red carpets for decades to come!
Denzel Washington Net Worth
With a fistful of awards over the years and movies upon movies that grossed over $100 million, it’s no wonder that Mr. Washington is loaded. But how much is Denzel Washington worth?
$190 million. Blink. Breathe. 190 MILLION DOLLARS.
In addition to giving to the Fisher House Foundation, he’s also known to contribute to The Boys and Girls Clubs and many other charities, as well. Come on, how is this guy so good-looking and nice?!
Denzel Washington Movies
This list is long, and it is so impressive that I don’t even know where to start…so what was Denzel Washington’s first movie? His first actual film was a made-for-TV flick, the one he was working on when he met his wife, Wilma. That was in 1977, but his Hollywood breakout role was actually in Carbon Copy in 1981.
He’s played in inspirational, historical, and heart-pounding thrillers. My favorite, if I may, was The Book of Eli, in which he carried his precious cargo through a desolate post-apocalyptic world full of scavengers, rapists, and cannibals. He was also in John Q., Malcolm X, Deja Vu, Flight, The Equalizer, Training Day, The Manchurian Candidate, He Got Game, Crimson Tide, and Cry Freedom.
Denzel has been in at least fifty two films and appeared in a few Broadway plays, including Richard III and Julius Caesar. He has also produced and started directing films here and there in 2002.
