Joaquin Phoenix loves where he lives so much that not only did he have to keep his property, but he just had to buy his neighbor’s as well.
The Oscar-nominated actor already resides in a humble abode atop the Hollywood Hills at famed Laurel Canyon and Mulholland Drive, but after seven years he may be looking to expand or just have another place to call home.
According to Trulia, the 38-year-old thespian’s current “ordinary-by-Hollywood-standards” property (that can be seen in his infamous mock-umentary I’m Still Here) was purchased in November 2006 for a not-so-ordinary price of $4.8 million. So it seems the house next door was just too good to pass up for mere $1.3M.
So what does The Master actor get for that kind of ca$h?
The 2,511 square foot gated home boasts three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room and dining room that opens up to a grassy landscaped courtyard that includes a stone waterfall and custom outdoor fireplace.
Not to mention, the new residence includes a breathtaking view of the canyon and city.
While it might be a downsize from his current 3,753 square foot, four-bedroom space, this new addition comes with some upgraded amenities, like a refurbished kitchen that includes top-of-the-line appliances, center island and a bonus room with its own entrance. The master suite also has a newly remastered bath and large built-in closet.
