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.

From a gate along the street, brick stairs lead down to a sunken courtyard and the home's main entrance. A separate gated driveway provides access to a two-car garage.

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.
