Inside The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar mansion as star ‘spends $7.5million’ on sprawling home

Kunal’s got some sweet digs

It seems Kunal Nayyar is making the most of his spare time after wrapping The Big Bang Theory, as he snapped up a sprawling mansion in Los Angeles recently.

It’s been reported the actor, who played Raj Koothrappali in the popular series that ended earlier this year, dropped $7.5million (£5.8million) on the two-story house, along with his wife Neha Kapur, believed to be in the historic Hancock Park neighbourhood.

Built in 1924, the house was previously owned by Nicolas Cage and features five stunning bedrooms, seven bathrooms and all the trimmings.

Well protected behind high gates, the 7,070-square-foot Tudor-style main house sits on a green acre that features brilliantly manicured lawns, trees and a welcoming pool in the backyard.

Inside we’re talking a wood-panelled dining room, modern kitchen and a library, should he want to make a start on the pile of books that gathered dust while he appeared on the CBS show.

All about entertaining, the back patio features an entertaining area with cosy couches and a bar.

In the master suite, where, if he appeared on MTV Cribs, he’d say is ‘where the magic happens’, is two fireplaces, a his and hers walk-in-wardrobe, a steam shower and a tub that’s bathed in light thanks to a skylight above.

Outside by the pool sits a guesthouse, gym and separate studio.

The asking price is likely to be chump change for the star, who played Raj over 12 seasons on The Big Bang Theory, where it was reported the leading cast earned $1million (£777,000) per episode.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the sprawling property hit the market in June for about $9million (£6.9million) but was more recently listed for about $8million (£6.2million).

Kunal and his wife also own a 5,000-square-foot Nichols Canyon abode, as they add this one to their real estate portfolio.
