Funnyman Ben Stiller may have a crude sense of humor, but his taste in real estate is nothing to laugh at. The actor and his wife, Christine Taylor, have recently put their Los Angeles-area compound on the market for $12.5 million. The property is located in the Outpost Estates neighborhood of LA.
Since purchasing the home in 1999, Stiller has assembled three properties to create the Spanish-style compound with a total of 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Here’s the breakdown of the 3-for-1 Stiller property:
- The principal parcel and main house — a 6-bedroom (and 6-bath), 5,334-square-foot, Spanish-style house on a 0.29-acre (12,628-square-foot) lot.
- A 5-bedroom (and 5-bath), 4,062-square-foot house that was built in 1930 and that sits on a 0.28-acre (12,197-square-foot) lot.
- Another adjacent 0.29-acre (12,628-square-foot) lot that was vacant, and on which Stiller constructed a 1-bedroom, 1,161-square-foot guest house in 2003.
The photos of the meticulously-maintained compound (courtesy of Luxist) are spectacular, boasting a pool, gorgeous gardens, and an outdoor dining area.
The Stiller family isn’t wasting any time before jumping into their next real estate investment. The New York Observer believes the power couple has purchased a $10 million co-op duplex on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Why the cross-country move? Stiller grew up in the Upper West Side in the 1970’s, and the co-op is in the same building where Stiller’s famous parents also live.
