Frankie Muniz’s Home for Rent, Again
Former child star of “Malcolm in the Middle” Frankie Muniz attempted to sell his Hollywood Hills home beginning in 2010 for $3,295,000. After a series of price cuts, he decided to kick it instead into the Los Angeles rental market for $10,000 a month. Singer Cee Lo Green snatched up Muniz’s home up in March 2011. Best known for catchy hits like “Crazy” and “Forget You,” Cee Lo is currently a judge on NBC’s singing competition show, “The Voice.”
Although Cee Lo was dropping $10,000 a month for Muniz’s home, the monthly rent is currently listed at $15,000 a month. Perhaps Muniz was cutting Cee Lo a deal, or maybe Cee Lo’s star power helped raise the rent price?
Muniz’s home was completely remodeled and now features an open floor plan with custom cabinetry and a variety of high-end finishes including marble, granite, tile, hardwood floors, and Caesarstone countertops. Originally built in 1941, the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom house has a professionally equipped kitchen, formal dining room, living room, and family room. The master suite is on the top floor of the 2-story home and includes high ceilings, a sitting area, fireplace, his-and-her closets, and a large master bath. Also included on the 0.17-acre lot is an ultra-private backyard with a swimming pool, spa, outdoor fireplace, and viewing deck that offers expansive views of the city.
Muniz picked up the home for 2006 for $3,499,034 when he was just 21 years old. He currently owns another home in Scottsdale.
