Funnyman Kevin James made a quick fortune this week.
And he didn’t have to lift a finger.
The star of “Mall Cop” and “Zookeeper” sold his oceanfront mansion in Delray Beach for a tidy profit.
According to Palm Beach County records, James sold the 2.7-acre property on A1A for $26.4 million CASH — just four years after he bought it for $18.5 million.
He didn’t have to improve it much. The 12,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom brickpile was already perfect with its Zen feel and a slew of goodies, including a mahogany-covered library, meditation room, eight-car garage, game room and saltwater pool.
The only thing the actor did was to buy a vacant lot next door for $4.25 million in 2014, records show, and he put the entire estate on the market in the spring for a Delray-record $28.8 million.
Even if James agreed to take less, he still got about $3 million out of the sale.
The mysterious buyer, meanwhile, went all out to remain anonymous.
He, or she, incorporated a company in Florida this week under the name 502 N. Ocean Boulevard, which happens to be the address of the property.
The registered agent is South Florida lawyer Frank Gonzalez, who was unavailable for comment.
And the buyer’s address is a real estate and estate planning law office in Riverton, New Jersey, outside Philadelphia. Drew Morris, a partner at the firm Nachmias, Morris & Alt, didn’t return calls for comment.
“Nobody seems to know who got it,” said Gerard Liguori, whose Delray Beach brokerage company handled the sale of the property to James in 2012. “They’ve really gone all out to keep it quiet this time around.”
