Lane Kiffin sold his L.A.-area mansion to Vince Vaughn for a ton of money

Because, of course:

The updated 7,308-square-foot contemporary Craftsman-style home, built in 2002, appears to be another notch in Vaughn’s real estate belt. He bought a Colonial-style home in La Canada Flintridge last year for $3.9 million.

The Manhattan Beach house features vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The three-car garage opens to a gated driveway.

The half-acre lot has a swimming pool and spa, a guesthouse and an outdoor kitchen.

Vaughn bought the house for $6.5 million. For reference, here’s the highest-priced listing for Tuscaloosa on Realtor.com. Though I’m not sure Lane Kiffin is looking to own 9 1/2 acres of undeveloped land.

    Don’t know how he does it, but Lane always manages to fall upwards. He bought the house for $5.5 million and USC gave him a loan of $500K that they can demand back with interest…but by making a cool $1 million on the sale to Vaughn, Lane still comes out smiling.

    There’s an old saying in the investment world and that is:
    In order to make money you have to spend money, and that’s what CLK did.

    Manhattan Beach is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods to buy into if you can afford it, especially if you have school age kids.

    The “tree section” is one of the better locations in Manhattan each, except for being right on The Strand.

    Not to forget, Jim Mora is/was a very close neighbor to CLK.

    Jealousy is a bitch, ain’t it?

    Price is for the location. House isn’t insane, but living that close to the beach is pricey.

    Kiffen and his wife must be soooo happy now living in Alabama.

    9 1/2 acres of undeveloped land in Manhattan Beach? Count me in.

    Quite a step down from a 6.5 million estate to a double wide trailer.

    Tell you what..I would take living in the simpler…easy going rural life of ALABAMA over any place in the Socialist republic of Ca. You can own a true ESTATE in AL with a friendly state Govt, versus the big brother of Ca,,with earthquakes,,taxes, regulations etc etc etc

    Amazing how some find it so easy to open their mouths and make wise cracks based off stereotypes and truly an example of envy. If you took the time to research the area you are talking about you would know that there are some very nice areas around the Tuscaloosa and very nice homes. I know its disappointing to have to give up an easy route to make a low blow comment, but most people in Alabama don’t live in “trailer parks” or “Double wides”.

    Ignorance must surely be bliss….

    Seriously? You’re trying to equate the real estate market in LA with the real estate market in Tuscaloosa? That’s absolutely the most asinine thing I’ve ever seen on CFT, and for once, I don’t care whether I’m slamming the writers.

    And you posted a listing for commerical real estate zoned for apartments.

    Tuscaloosa has beautiful neighborhoods and beautiful, upscale homes. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, country clubs, the works. Do you think Saban lives in a double-wide?

    That’s just total dickishness to ridicule Alabama as though any neighborhood in Columbus or State College or Notre Dame would have real estate listings comparable to LA.

    Grow up.
