Matthew Perry's house

This is the house where Matthew Perry died.

It is located at 18038 Blue Sail Drive in Pacific Palisades, California.

Perry was best known for portraying the character Chandler Bing in the sitcom Friends.

The actor lived in a $13 million beachside home at 25438 Malibu Road in Malibu between 2011 and 2020. He purchased this smaller property for $6 million in August 2020.

Perry was found unresponsive in his hot tub on the afternoon of October 28th, 2023, by his personal assistant.

His assistant lifted his head above the water, pulled him to the side of the tub, and called 911.

By the time emergency responders arrived, it was too late, as an initial medical assessment determined that he was already deceased.

He was officially pronounced dead at the house at 4.17 p.m.

Perry had a well-publicized history of addiction. Although no illegal drugs were found inside the residence and an initial toxicology test ruled out fentanyl and methamphetamine, a post-mortem examination concluded that he had died due to the "acute effects of ketamine."

Drowning, coronary artery disease, and the effects of buprenorphine were also listed as contributing factors.

A spokesperson for the LA Medical Examiner said that the actor had been receiving small doses of ketamine for anxiety and depression. In larger amounts, the anesthetic can cause immobilization and detachment from reality.

Perry was found dead in his hot tub

Hot tub

Perry's personal assistant found him dead in the backyard hot tub on the afternoon of Saturday, October 28th, 2023.

Earlier that day, the actor had exercised and played a lengthy game of pickleball—a tennis-like sport that is similar to ping pong and badminton.

Following the game, he asked his assistant to run an errand for him.

These photographs show the backyard and the inside of Perry's house.

Blue Sail Drive is situated in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. The upscale neighborhood provides an expansive view of Santa Monica Bay and downtown Los Angeles.

Note that the realtor photos above were taken before Perry purchased the property.

The 54-year-old Friends star carried out extensive renovations before he started living at this address. He rented a three-bed home in Beverly Hills for more than a year while the work was being completed.

Therefore, it is likely that the interior looks substantially different now.

Recent photographs indicate that the exterior of the hot tub in the backyard was also redesigned.
