The famous Laurel Canyon abode was once owned by the late actor Heath Ledger and the comedian Ellen DeGeneres.
Known as The Tree House, this alluring Los Angeles home has attracted numerous celebrity owners over the years. The midcentury abode is perched just off of Mulholland Drive in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood, its name inspired by lush landscaping that surrounds the hilltop location. Embracing the vegetation, the property offers winding garden footpaths and a 2,500-square-foot deck looking out over the tree tops.
The 1,900-square-foot residence was built in 1951 and has since cycled through the hands of numerous artists and actors, including furniture designer Guy Chaddock, comedian Ellen DeGeneres, and the late actor Heath Ledger. Its current owner of seven years is the 26-year-old actor Josh Hutcherson, known for his role as Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games trilogy, as well as a starring role in the Hulu series Future Man.
The two-bed, two-bath home features polished concrete floors contrasting with wood-beamed ceilings, as well as large windows looking out onto the thick grove of neighboring Sycamore trees. It’s no wonder the privacy offered by such a location has attracted so many celebrities. Scroll ahead for a peek inside the home, which is currently listed at $3,495,000.
