Tori Spelling and Family Buy in Malibu

Tori Spelling and her husband, actor Dean McDermott are new buyers in the seaside town of Malibu. Purchased on September 29, 2011 for $2,400,000, Tori and Dean’s new home has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and clocks in at 2,052 square feet. The Los Angeles Times describes the property as being “covered in native landscaping, organic gardens and lawn. The single-story home, built in the 1960s and since renovated, features bamboo floors, a vaulted living room ceiling, and a wall of built-in book shelves. Custom-built sliding doors lead outside to multiple decks and sitting areas.”

Tori and Dean just welcomed their third child, a daughter named Hattie. In the midst of all this home buying and baby-having, the Spelling-McDermott clan also found the time to sell their six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom, 6,718 square-foot Tuscan-style villa in Encino, CA. Tori has been vocal in the press and gossip magazines about her desire for more and more children. With the three she has now, and any more that may come along, they’ll quickly outgrow their brand new Malibu digs.

Here at Trulia, we don’t have a crystal ball, but we can see that Tori and Dean’s newly-purchased Malibu home is 4,000 square feet smaller than the home they just sold in Encino. Normally we don’t see a growing Hollywood family downsize that significantly. What we do know is that the new house is in a prime Malibu location and sits on about 1.75 acres – the perfect amount of space to knock down the existing property and build something bigger and better. We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one.
