Actress Tallulah Willis Lists Her 1920s Hollywood Hills Home for $1.9M

By Kathryn M. 

Tucked away on a large corner lot in a coveted Los Angeles enclave, the charming residence features bright living spaces and a dreamy backyard oasis.

Actress Tallulah Willis is cutting ties with her sun-drenched home in Los Angeles. The youngest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore—who is newly engaged to her partner, Dillon Buss—acquired the three-bedroom residence in 2017 for $1,530,000. After treating the home to a stylish revamp, Tallulah is now parting ways with the dwelling, which she lovingly referred to as “a space made a home” in a recent Instagram post.

Built in 1924, the Spanish-style house sits on a spacious corner lot in the city’s sought-after Hollywood Dell neighborhood. Upon arrival, the formal entryway opens to a spacious living room with arched ceilings, original built-ins, and a double-sided central fireplace. Skylights and expansive picture windows flood the space with an abundance of natural light.

Steps away from the living room, an open-concept chef’s kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances and a central island. Vibrant orange countertops pop against the surrounding white color palette. Large glass doors connect the space to the private backyard, which includes several open-air gathering areas situated across various well-landscaped tiers.

Midcentury Modern Home of ‘Spongebob SquarePants’ Creator Sells in Bidding War to Billionaire

By James McClain

Well, that didn’t take long. Only a month after it first popped up for sale, the stunningly preserved San Marino home of the late Stephen Hillenburg has sold for about $5.1 million in an all-cash deal — an almost unbelievable $1.1 million more than the $4 million asking price and more than double what the “Spongebob SquarePants” creator paid for the place in 2006.

Records reveal the ferocious bidding war’s winner is Hong Kong-born billionaire Gerald Chan, a naturalized U.S. citizen who made his fortune in shopping malls and other real estate holdings in Hong Kong and Mainland China, and in private equity and venture capital investment stateside. In 2014, Chan and his brother Ronnie — who are together worth $2 billion, per Forbes — donated $350 million to Harvard University, the largest single donation in the school’s history up to that point.

DPP Shred Event 2021

Our annual DPP Shred Event is something we look forward to every year as a fun way to connect with clients and help the environment as well. Last weekend, our socially-distanced Shred Event took place at several DPP office locations. DPP staff, agents and their clients gathered as massive paper-shredding trucks arrived at our Pasadena, Glendora, Monrovia and Sierra Madre locations. And all together shredded a whopping 28,940 pounds of paper! That’s a significant amount of paper waste which will now be recycled and reused – nearly 14 and a half tons to be exact. The event was a definite success and we were happy to help our DPP family and clients get a head start on their spring cleaning.
