Funnyman Mel Brooks apparently is getting the last laugh in real estate, too. The director of ribald comedy classics such as Blazing Saddles, The Producers and Young Frankenstein has listed his 4,000-square-foot, oceanview condominium in a Santa Monica, Calif., high-rise for $5,995,000.
The ninth-floor unit was created from four contiguous apartments and features hardwood floors, built-in cabinets and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels that enhance the killer Pacific Ocean views.
Brooks was married to actress Anne Bancroft, who died of cancer in 2005. He is said to own at least five residences scattered in both California and New York.
