After having such a happy-go-lucky time unloading his SoCal spread—which, if one may recall, sold for $55K over ask just 36 days after listing—actor Kevin James has decided to try it all again, this time with his larger Palm Beach manse, which he's just hoisted onto the market for $19.95M. James—known for Hitch and his comedy TV series The King of Queens—bought the 25,834-square-foot, 10-bedroom estate for $18.5M less than a year ago, and has apparently been using the grandiose, Med-style house as his main landing pad. The brokerbabble onetime dubbed the mansion a "blissful haven for indoor/outdoor living" and "an oceanside paradise indulging every passion," though the gossip blogs say it was appraised for just $10M. Inside: much in the way of mahogany paneling, loggias, "wardrobe rooms," and wood-beamed ceilings, all of which are on display in the listing photos, below.
UPDATE: Just kidding, guys. Turns out a "a glitch on the homepage of a local Realtor" sent out some straight-up incorrect info about several expensive Palm Beach properties, including this one. Apparently James and his people are "not too happy." Ruh roh.
