Kelly Ripa co-host Michael Strahan has been busy on the real estate front this year. The Fox football analyst and his fiancee, television personality Nicole Murphy, bought a home in Bel-Air, sold one in Hermosa Beach and have another on the market in the beach city.
The gated Bel-Air estate they purchased for $7.9 million centers on a 1926 Mediterranean with a courtyard entry. Among features are walls of glass, a screening room with a bar, a gym, a sauna, five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. The more than one-acre property includes a detached guesthouse and a swimming pool.
The pair sold a four-bedroom, 41/2 bathroom house with 3,291 square feet of living space in Hermosa Beach for $3 million. They also have a 2,560-square-foot custom town house in Hermosa Beach up for sale at $1.849 million.
Strahan, 40, co-hosts "Live! With Kelly and Michael." He replaced longtime co-host Regis Philbin. The defensive end played for the New York Giants his entire NFL career, setting a record for sacks in a single season and retiring in 2008 after winning Super Bowl XLII. He starred in the 2009 TV series "Brothers."
