Hanks Acts Wisely and Buys Dream Home

It’s always intriguing when the rich and famous dabble in the property market, and we, as mere mortals, love to get that inside view of their very often stylish and beautiful homes. So, as you can imagine, Haute Living stood up and took notice when we heard Colin Hanks had recently become a first time buyer.

Yes, the son of Tom Hanks has purchased a sparkling new home in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills. It is thought that the young talented actor had wished to move to Philadelphia or Orange County, but ultimately chose the glamorous Beachwood Canyon area in L.A that sent him back $1.025 million. Even with the current economic situation, celebs prove they are in a league of their own in regards to the property market. Let’s hope Colin’s investment doesn’t become a troublesome ‘Money Pit’.

The house itself was built in 1926, and is designed in a Spanish-style. There is one full bath, one three-quarter bath, and a large open living room with a barrel ceiling, a fireplace with Batchelder tile, and banks of windows. Other features include a formal dining room, a sunny kitchen, and library/den that opens outside.

The house sits on a cozy and gated, 0.19-acre (8,477-square-foot) lot that has a studio on it that can be used for a home office or gym. Also on the property are grassy gardens, tranquil patio spaces, and canyon views.

I’m sure you’ll agree that Colin’s new home sounds fantastic, and will be a wonderful place for him and his beautiful wife to live. Of course, if he follows in Dad’s award winning footsteps, he’ll need plenty of room on the mantelpiece for those 13.5 inch gold men.
