After 13 years of marriage, “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer has filed for divorce from his former Playboy model/current Beverly Hills Real Housewife, Camille Grammer — an event that will be publicized as a major part of tonight’s season finale of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (airing on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET/PT).
Although Kelsey appears to have moved on from his marriage to Camille and is now involved with his new fiance, Katye Walsh, the legal end to Kelsey and Camille’s partnership isn’t going to be an easy or cheap venture. According to pop culture website, PopCrunch, the couple has accumulated a fortune worth over $100 million. It turns out that most of this fortune is tied up in an extensive real estate portfolio that includes properties in Los Angeles, Malibu (CA), Maui, the Hamptons, and Colorado. This, of course, led us to scour the maps for a round-up of the impressive property collection that is sure to make a separation of the Grammer estate anything but pleasant.
Serra Retreat, Malibu, CA
The Grammers’ home base is said to be their massive 4.77-acre estate tucked away in Malibu’s Serra Retreat (pictured above). Records show they paid $4.5 million for the property in April 1998 and includes two gigantic houses, a 9-stall barn, dressage ring, lighted tennis courts, and a beautifully landscaped lily pond. According to public records, the main house that Kelsey and Camille shared (also featured in the “Real Housewives” introduction, pictured right) has 6,645 sq ft, 4 bedrooms, and 6 bathrooms. Real Estalker divulged that the house was actually on the market in 2005 for $17,995,000, but the Grammer’s had second thoughts about parting with the property. It is up in the air as to whether or not the second house is another Grammer-occupied abode, empty house, guesthouse, or staff residence.

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA
Kelsey and Camille’s Beverly Hills home is also a frequent resting place for the Grammer clan. This beautiful English Country estate (pictured above) was one of the few that Mr. Grammer completely remodeled and attempted to sell for $19.9 million in 2008. The couple bought the 10,567-sq ft house for $13.7 million in 2007. The 7-bedroom, 9-bathroom home sits on 1 acre and features a spacious living room, media room, dining room, gourmet kitchen, gym, motor court, and large, outdoor swimming pool. There is no record of a final sale.
Other properties that Mister and soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Grammer purchased and flipped include:
- 6,8111 sq ft, 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom house in Bel Air, sold to Selma Hayek for $13,500,135 in June of 2007
- 17,831 sq ft, 8-bedroom, 12-bathroom house in Beverly Hills, sold for $22 million in January 2006
- 9,600 sq ft, 5-bedroom house on 2 acres in Maui, HI, sold for $9,470,000 in November 2005

Bridgehampton, New York
The Grammers’ Bridgehampton home (pictured above) was purchased in 2006 for $8,517,000 in 2006 through Kelsey’ Fossil II Trust. According to the New York Post, the 7-bedroom home was put on the market for $16.1 million in 2007, but there is no record of a final sale (see listing photos here). The two-story house includes over 8,000 sq ft, a home theater, gym, wine cellar, great room, staff quarters, and an elevator. The cozy, 1.7-acre property also includes a tennis court, heated outdoor pool, spa, and a pool house.

Believe it or not, the above properties aren’t even half of what makes up the Grammers’ real estate collection. There are at least a half dozen more to add to the list, most of which were purchased under Kelsey’s Fossil II Trust, making them a bit harder to track down. While we don’t have photos, we do know that the properties include:
- 1.88+ acre parcel on Weave Hollow in Andes, NY (Delaware County). Reports show that Grammer owns a 19th-century, 2,800-sq ft farmhouse that was built in 1900.
- 8,230-sq ft house on 1.67 acres in Avon, CO. Public records shows the property was purchased through Kelsey’s trust for $5,350,000 in May 2002.
- 2 properties in Hawaii — one which was purchased for $6 million in 2003, and the other for $1.75 million in May 2006.
- Multiple million-dollar apartments in upstate New York.
