Craig Ferguson may be a native of Glasgow, Scotland, but the Scot has won a spot in the American-as-apple-pie category in ways that go beyond his 2008 American naturalization. He’s been the host of The Late Late Show since 2005, and like any American, in addition to comedy Ferguson also likes moving on to bigger and better things! In April he moved into a more luxurious house not far away from the one he left behind.
That house, which is currently on sale for $1.99 million, was built in 1930. It’s perched atop the Hollywood Hills and is in the Spanish style so popular with the movie/TV star set of Los Angeles. As an upstanding example of an excellent Hollywood Hills property, Ferguson’s former home has enviable views of the city as well as a pool for fun in the sun the Cali way. Ferguson actually made his home here for over a decade.
The acclaim Ferguson has garnered has been for a surprisingly diverse list of accomplishments. Ferguson is a published author. His novel Between the Bridge and the River was released in 2006 and his memoir American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot came out in 2009. That same year, Ferguson interviewed Archbishop Desmond Tutu on his show and was awarded a Peabody Award in 2010 on the merit of that interview. Just last year, Ferguson was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word album for the audio recording of his memoir. The highly accomplished entertainer has had stints as a bouncer and as a rock band drummer. Like he said it, improbable.
