…That prolific ack-tor and comedic hot-dogger Ben Stiller (Tropic Thunder, Night at the Museum, Zoolander, Meet the Parents and etc.) is getting ready to put his three property compound in the Outpost Estates area of Los Angeles on the market with an asking price somewhere around $12,500,000.

Records show Mister Stiller began piecing together his three parcel compound in November of 1999 when he paid paid $1,825,000 for a 5,334 square foot Spanish style house which records indicate as having 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Previous owners of the property, according to records, were ack-tor Lou Diamond Phillips and his then wife Julie Cypher who left him for rock star Melissa Etheridge and who after 12 years and a couple of kids kicked Miz Etheridge to the curb making the jaw-dropping claim that she is not nor never was a lesbian. Well alright then, I guess that even though it walks like a duck it very well may be a horse. Or a goat. Or whatever…

Anyhoo, we digress. In October of 2001 Mister Stiller and his newish bride Christine Taylor completed their compound when they bought an adjacent two-parcel property for $1,825,000. Records show one of the parcels had (and still has) a 4,062 square foot Spanish style residence with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The second parcel, which sits in between the two houses, was vacant at the time of the purchase but records show the Stillers added a motor court and a 1,161 square foot structure with automobile garaging and a single bathroom in 2003.

The Stiller’s day-core was done up in fine style by the folks at Roman and Williams who have also worked over homes for Kate Hudson and Gynnie Paltrow. Mister and Missus Stiller also allowed their Hollywood Hills home to be photographed for Elle Decor not too long ago, so we’re sure there are some snaps floating about the interweb, but honestly chickens, we’re running late and simply don’t have time to track them down right now. Sorry darlins.

Property records also show that in August of 2006 Mister Stiller picked up a 1,608 square foot casa on Canton Way in Studio City, CA for which he paid $1,100,000 and reports from September of 2008 reveal that Mister and Missus Stiller forked over a whopping $10,000,000 for dooplex digs on the Upper West Side of Manhattan which happens to be in the very same Riverside Drive building where his comedic legend parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara live.

Does this mean Mister Stiller might be giving up the California ghost and moving permanently back to the Upper West Side where he grew up? Your Mama certainly don’t know apples from carburetors, but time will tell hunnies, time will tell…
