Rosie O’Donnell Selling Luxurious FL Estate for $5.75M
Celebrity Real Estate | Feb 18, 2015 | By: Roman Loyola
This year has been tough for Rosie O’Donnell, and we’re not even out of February. She announced her divorce from wife Michelle Rounds and cut her second stint on “The View” short, leaving the popular show after only six months.
Now, the popular talk-show host is selling her home in Nokomis, FL. She’s asking for $5.75 million, and Jill Friedman is the listing agent.
Records indicate that O’Donnell and Rounds paid $5 million for the house in 2013. The house had been on the market for two years and had originally listed for $6,775,000.
When we reported on the purchase of the house in 2013, we noted that the plantation-style home has a chef-inspired kitchen with professional-grade appliances. We also pointed out the outdoor amenities, including the pool, kitchen, and cypress-paneled loggia that overlooks Casey Key Beach.
O’Donnell expanded the property with the purchase of a bayside lot, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. She also installed watercraft lifts and a boat dock.
The house is being sold furnished, according to Sarasota Magazine, which also noted the house’s “beach-y vibe with comfortable, unpretentious furniture … plus a lot of custom woodworking, shutters, and flooring.”

The outspoken O’Donnell has been active in the real estate market in the past few years.
Before buying the Nokomis estate, she sold her Miami Beach manse for $12,675,000.
After buying the Nokomis property, she bought a French Country estate in Saddle River, NJ.
In late 2014, she sold her New York City penthouse for $9 million.
She put up for sale a set of four properties along the Hudson River in Nyack, NY. But earlier this month, those properties were delisted.
In 2011, she bought a 6,000-square-foot home in Chicago. A few months later, she sold the house after only a day on the market.
After several years touring as a stand-up comedian, O’Donnell starred in her own daytime talk show, “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” which ran for six years. In 2006, she joined “The View” for the first time and stayed for a little over a year. O’Donnell has also appeared in several films and radio shows and has written two memoirs.
