    Celebrity Homes From Different Decades

    Would you rather have a newly-built home or a piece of local history? Well, it turns out that maybe celebrities really are just like us! Instead of living in brand spanking new mansions, they actually live in homes from every decade, ranging all the way back to 1908! Make no mistake though – even though celebrity homes may be older, they are always fancy, massive and majorly high-priced!

    Let’s see who lives in homes from the various decades!

    Madonna – The 1900’s

    Built in 1908, the Material Girl’s 2-story New York duplex has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and pine floors – a very common amenity in homes built during that time.

    Katy Perry – The 1920’s 

    Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Katy Perry’s home was built in 1921 and features 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 8,835 square feet, a pool. The estate is a glamourous Spanish-style home, which was a very common style built back in that era.

    Jason Bateman – The 1930’s

    In-demand actor Jason Bateman bought the iconic estate of the late, great Ernest Borgnine, which was built in 1938. Located in Beverly Hills, the 5 bedrooms, 7 bathroom, 6,148 square foot home has a pool, views and a slate roof, which was popular with homes built in the 30’s.

    Lauren Conrad – The 1950’s

    Budding real estate mogul and former “The Hills” star, Lauren Conrad, went back to the 50’s when she bought a house in Brentwood for $3,754,000. Built in 1959, the home has the period appropriate feature – a double-wide driveway, which is perfect for her and her entourage’s many cars. Inside, the home has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4,303 square feet and a glittery pool.

    David Hasselhoff – The 1980’s

    It seems almost too fitting that David Hasselhoff has a home built in 1988. The actor has a bit of a throwback vibe, due to his popularity in previous decades when he played lifeguard Mitch Buchannon on Baywatch. In his real life, Hasselhoff owned an 80’s home in Encino that has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8,947 square feet, a pool, 2 guesthouses and a very 80’s feature – large bathroom mirrors.

    Kevin James – The 2000’s

    ‘King of Queens’ star Kevin James sure was living like a king in his Encino mansion, which was built brand new in 2003. The palatial pad has 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 11,291 square feet, a resort-style pool, and two very common amenities for homes built between 2000-2009: an aerobics room and a snail shower.

    Daisy Fuentes – 2010-present

    Daisy’s got herself a brand new home! Built brand new in 2012, Daisy Fuentes recently scooped up a beachfront Malibu home that has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3,836 square feet and a coveted feature in brand new builds: natural light exposure!

      5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 6,148 square feet, pool, views



      In-demand actor Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka, have just purchased the estate of the late, great actor Ernest Borgnine, who passed away in July 2012. According to property records, Bateman and Anka closed the deal on January 23, 2013, and paid $3,000,000 for the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom estate. Bateman is back in the news lately, annoucing the resurrection of hit TV show “Arrested Development,” in which he plays Michael Bluth. With his career continuing on the up-and-up, Bateman and his wife needed a new place to call home, and there was no better choice for the duo than the secluded estate of a Hollywood icon.

      Located on a rarely-traveled cul-de-sac in the Beverly Hills Post Office, the estate sits perched on a knoll above Mulholland Drive. The private home is only accessible via a gated driveway, which ends at a large motor-courtyard. This ‘Country English’ compound was held by Borgnine for nearly 60 years, making it a rare purchase for Bateman and Anka. While the decor is dated, the home has incredible potential.

      The formal entry hall, with its grand, sweeping staircase, welcomes visitors to the entertaining and public rooms. In addition to the spacious living and family rooms, which each open to the beckoning pool and patio areas, there is a paneled library, office, den, formal dining room, breakfast room, and kitchen. One wing upstairs is occupied by the master suite — comprised of dual baths and dressing rooms, a private sitting room, and a grand balcony. The other wing is home to two bedrooms, a ‘Jack and Jill’ bath, and an upstairs lounge/study area.

      In total, the Batemans will enjoy 6,148 square feet of living space; the property also includes a generous, self-contained one-bedroom guesthouse with living room and kitchen. Topping it all of are the sweeping views of city lights and nearby mountains, visible from anywhere on the estate.
