Heath Ledger’s Former L.A. Home for Sale
Like many homes in Los Angeles, there is one on the Hollywood Hills real estate market that has seen more than one celebrity owner. Located on the celeb-favored Woodrow Wilson Street, this home was once owned by comedian/talk show host Ellen DeGeneres who sold it to celebrity couple Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams in 2005. The house is currently listed for sale for $2.995 million.
According to listing records, Ledger purchased the property from DeGeneres in August 2005 for $2,100,021. He and Williams lived there throughout their relationship and the birth of their daughter until their split in 2007. After Ledger’s death in Manhattan in January 2008, the home was put on the market and sold that July for $2.5 million.
The home has bounced on and off the real estate market in the past couple of years. It was first listed in 2009 for $3,695,000, then dropped to $3,495,000 before being taken off the market. The home’s current price is a 14.3 percent discount. As the area is home to many A-Listers (and their mansions), median Hollywood Hills home values are presently $976,900.
The mid-century house is described as “the tree house,” and sits on an ultra-private lot filled with sycamores and mature landscaping. The home includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 1,861 square feet of living space as well as 2,500 square feet of outdoor living space. Outdoor features include a movie lounge with projector screen, a dining and barbecue space as well as multiple seating areas.
True of nearly all celebrity real estate, the home is perched behind a long gated driveway and includes a state-of-the-art security system.
The listing is held by John Galich of Rodeo Realty.
