It's pretty fitting that actor Kevin James made his fortune on the hit sitcom "King of Queens" because it looks like the actor has certainly been living like a king in recent years.

The 47-year-old has put his 11,291-square-foot Los Angeles-area mansion on the market for $5.495 million, according to real estate website Redfin. And a peek inside shows an over-the-top home that appears better suited for some of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" than for the burly star of "Paul Blart: Mall Cop."

In addition to five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, the custom-built mansion, which sits on two acres of land in the San Fernando Valley community of Encino, includes a giant open-air gym, state-of-the-art home theater, and even a dressing room "befitting a posh boutique on Rodeo Drive," according to the listing.

James – who has three young children with wife, actress Steffiana De La Cruz – bought the home in 2003 for $3.2 million. It's unclear how many upgrades (if any) James did after moving in and James' listing agent did not return calls for comment, but one thing's for sure: The guy clearly loves luxury.

Other posh amenities include a resort-style backyard with pool and hot tub, a spa-style bathroom complete with a shower made of rocks and outdoor patio with a fireplace, and a gourmet kitchen with a copper range and hood made by fabled French manufacturer La Cornue, which can cost upwards of $75,000.

Oh, and the entire place is wired with an automated system that lets the occupants control everything from the home's lighting to music to the air temperature, all from a remote control. Now, that's the kind of amenity couch potato Doug Heffernan could have truly appreciated.
