The longtime host and creator of the reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” purchased his newest residence on Laurel Way for $13.7 million in late September, according to Mansion Global.

However, the property was listed at $16.4 million with Myra and Michael Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates-Berkshire Hathaway, according to the listing.

The 10,309 square-foot European mansion on Laurel Way has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the listing said.

It has a formal dining room, high-ceilinged living rooms, fireplaces and French parquet floors.

The master bedroom upstairs has an outdoor terrace and downstairs rooms include a media room, a wine cellar, a gym and a four-car garage.

Earlier this year, Charles put the smaller mansion on the market for $5 million, but lowered the price to $4.7 million before it was taken off the market altogether in August, Variety reported.

Charles first bought that house -- in the Bird Streets neighborhood -- in 2011 for $2.5 million.

According to Variety, Charles and his husband, Australian artist Georges LeBar, have a two-bedroom condo in West Hollywood, and a condo in New York City's West Village. LeBar also reportedly has a 50-acre ranch in Wyoming, the outlet reported.
