Celebrity Living for Under $1 Million – Real Estate for Sale in Santa Monica

Posted by admin Posted in Uncategorized

Besides large pools, high security and untouched gourmet kitchens, most celebrity homes have something else in common: a big price tag.

From Anderson Cooper’s $ 3.79 million penthouse to Jennifer Aniston’s $ 42 million former pad, celebrity real estate is nearly always priced in the high seven figures.

However, with some digging, we’ve found some recognizable stars whose homes are a little more modestly priced. Priced where mere mortals would have a shot at owning it. Maybe. These are all homes owned by stars that sold for under a million. Take a look:

John Krasinski

Purchased for: $ 1,050,010
Sold for: $ 880,000

When John Krasinski picked up this modest bungalow in 2006 for $ 1,050,000, he had a year under his belt playing sarcastic coworker Jim Halpert on TV’s hit mockumentary, “The Office”  Built in 1926, Krasinski’s home is the perfect bachelor pad with just two bedrooms, two baths and a little over 1,200 square feet of living space. As Krasinski’s role in “The Office” and his relationship with British actress Emily Blunt heated up, he listed the home on the West Hollywood real estate market for $ 945,000. Three years later the “Country English-style” home, pictured below, sold for a loss at $ 880,000.

Kaley Cuoco

Purchased for: $ 1,355,000
Sold for: $ 822,500

Here’s another TV star who sold her digs for under $ 1 million. Kaley Cuoco’s home in Sherman Oaks was first listed at $ 995,000 and eventually sold well under the listing price, even after a price cut. Cuoco, who stars on the Emmy-nominated comedy “The Big Bang Theory,”  bought the 3-bedroom, 2-bath Spanish home for $ 1,355,000 in 2005, after ending her role on ABC’s “8 Simple Rules.” The private home, below, features “park-like” grounds, hardwood floors and period details from its 1937 construction date.

Simon Helberg

Purchased for: $ 950,000
Sold for: $ 795,000

Like his “Big Bang Theory” co-star Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg sold his home for less than a million and at a 6.4 percent loss from his original listing price. Helberg’s home is a traditional Craftsman. Built in 1910, the 2,569-square-foot home, pictured below, still has the original leaded-glass windows, peaked roof, hardwood floors, built-ins and designer light fixtures.

Danny Bonaduce

Purchased for: $ 399,000
Sold for: $ 435,000

As the wise-cracking bassist in the “The Partridge Family” that traveled in a Technicolor school bus, Danny Bonaduce was immortalized in American pop culture at age 11. After a reality TV stint, the raspy-voiced actor and producer found a home on radio as a DJ hosting shows in Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia. When Bonaduce moved radio stations to his current gig in Seattle, he listed his industrial town home, below, on the Center City East real estate market for $ 475,000.

Chris Daughtry

Purchased for: $ 690,000
Currently listed for: $ 639,900

While many rock n’ rollers claim New York or L.A. as their home base, American Idol Season 5 runner-up and Grammy-nominated singer Chris Daughtry has lived in North Carolina throughout his career in a home listed on the Oak Ridge real estate market well below the cost of most celebrity hideouts: $ 639,000. The brick 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home, pictured below, may be a little snug for Daughtry, his wife and four children, even though it boasts over 3,600 square feet of living space. Other amenities include a salt-water pool and spa, professional putting green — all on a 1.17-acre lake view lot.

Marlee Matlin

Purchased for: $ 437,000
Previously listed for: $ 899,000

For an award-winning actress, Marlee Matlin’s home is remarkably normal and for sale for under a million. To help pay off IRS debt in 2011, the Oscar winner put her suburban home on the Pasadena real estate market for $ 899,000. According to property records, she and her Los Angeles police officer husband purchased the home in 1999 for $ 437,000. The suburban, kid-friendly home, pictured below, is not currently on the market — it was last listed for $ 899,000. Matlin may have paid off her debt without the sale of her home, or perhaps the house was picked up by a buyer.
