From opulent LA homes to a staggering car collection, Perry’s love for luxury validated with style.
Despite his role as the straightforward Chandler Bing in Friends, Matthew Perry actually lived a luxurious life. Beloved Perry left us too soon, but not without leaving behind traces of his opulence. Let’s get to know some of his most valuable possessions.
Perry had a well-known affection for real estate. He was an avid investor, purchasing properties with elegance, charm, and panoramic scenes. A standout property was an $11 million beachfront home in Malibu, which he acquired in 2011 and sold a decade later for a sum of $13.1 million. Another worthwhile mention is a sprawling penthouse in Century City purchased for a staggering $20 million. It found a new owner in June 2021 for $21.6 million.
The last piece in his housing narratives is a $5 million acquisition in Hollywood Hills this year. This classic 1957 structure flaunts an immaculate white exterior and spreads across 2,566 square feet on a 0.22-acre plot. The three-bedroom house, endowed with an atrium-style entryway, echoed Perry’s taste for the elegant. A tranquil, black-walled media room and outdoors featuring a covered patio, and poolside electric fire pit added to its splendid charm.
Before this bewitching creation, Perry owned a tasteful $6 million abode in LA’s Pacific Palisades neighborhood—just another testament to his love for grandeur in 2020.
Perry and Porsche
Transitioning from palatial dwellings to high-speed machines, Matthew Perry’s life was abundant in luxury cars. Perry owned a 440 horsepower Lincoln Navigator (worth $76,710) and an $86,700 BMW 6 Series Convertible which evidently were among his favorite rides. Not just that, Perry was notably fond of an $87,800 BMW 7 Series sedan with a blistering 130 MPH top speed.
He also has a Porsche 911 Carrera Convertible, running a swift 0 to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds with a remarkable top speed of 190 MPH.
His car collection were arguably an Aston Martin Vantage Convertible ($151,000) and a superlative Audi R8 Spyder that boasted an impressive $160,900 price tag.
