Actor Shawn Ashmore has been busy lately! The X-Men actor recently sold one home and purchased another nearby in Los Angeles.
Ashmore burst onto the scene when he appeared as Iceman in the X-Men series, and viewers may also know him from his role as Jake in the TV series, Animorphs.
Ashmore’s previous home, which he purchased in 2009 for $593,000, sold this August for $653,500, and after three months of looking in a hot and heavy LA market, Ashmore purchased a home in Studio City for $995,000.
The 3 bed, 3 bath Studio City charmer boasts a stone-lined salt water pool, spa, hardwood floors, and sits behind an idyllic white picket fence. The kitchen impresses with stainless steel appliances and a connected eating area, along with convenient outdoor access.
A perfect escape, the master suite includes a stunning master bath with a step in shower and spa tub.

Set of FX's new smash TV hit "American Horror Story"
15,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms
Now for sale in Los Angeles – the “Murder House” from the hit new FX TV series “American Horror Story.” On the show, it’s haunted by ghosts of a murder-suicide, and the blissfully unaware Harmon family decides that the home is the perfect place for a fresh start. Off-screen, it’s the stately Rosenheim Mansion on Westchester Place in Los Angeles. Architect Alfred Rosenheim built the estate in1908 as his own residence.
According to the Curbed LA archives, the city historic-cultural monument includes a three-story main house and a detached ballroom, which was “formerly a chapel” and is currently used as a recording studio. The house is decked out in Tiffany, with stained glass windows, light fixtures, leaded-glass display cases, and “a museum-quality set of Tiffany glass doors.”
The home also has a formal dining room, six Batchelder tile fireplaces, and a solarium. Property records show that the Rosenheim house has been on and off the market since 1999. It was listed in January 2009 at $7.5 million, came off the market in April 2010, was back on the market in January 2011 for $4.5 million and is still currently listed at that price. With that hit TV fame, the sellers are hoping the home will finally sell – hopefully for a nice chunk of change.
Fun fact: The show’s pilot was shot on location at the Rosenheim Mansion, and the house was later replicated on a set for the rest of the episodes.
