Comedian and “Saturday Night Live” alum Will Forte has sealed the deal on a stunning $6.25 million waterfront property off California’s coast.

The 1.4-acre, 3,612-square-foot home first hit the market in 2016 for $7.5 million, reported. It was built in 1980 and sits in between two inlets on the enclave of Otter Cove in Carmel. Some of its most stunning features include multiple decks and a staircase that leads to a private beach.

On the outside, the home has several outdoor seating areas and a granite, glass, and redwood exterior. The interior has floor-to-ceiling glass windows with views of the ocean, wall paneling, a living room with a fireplace and a professional chef’s kitchen. It also has three bedrooms and several dens and office spaces.

Forte, 49, rose to fame by creating and appearing as the “MacGruber” character on “Saturday Night Live” in the early 2000s. He has since written and starred in “The Last Man on Earth,” a sitcom about a virus that kills off humanity and leaves only a few people behind.

Otter Cove is an isolated part of California coast known for stellar ocean views and all kinds of marine life. It was once frequented by artists but, given the boom of California’s real estate prices in the last decade, is now more frequently home to the rich and famous. According to Redfin, an average house in Carmel now commands $1.5 million.

Sotheby’s International Realty Tina Carpenter worked with Forte while Mary Hawley of Keller Williams Bay Area Estates represented the buyer, who chose to remain anonymous.
