William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman Buy House Next Door

BUYERS: Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy
LOCATION: Los Angles, CA
PRICE: $3,800,000
SIZE: 4,566 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Since the late 1990s Oscar-nominated celebrity couple Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and William H. Macy (Shameless) have shacked up in a big house on three contiguous hillside lots in the star-studded Outpost Estates section of Los Angeles.

According to our valiant informant Yolanda Yakketyak—and confirmed by Your Mama with property records—the couple recently dropped $3,800,000 to acquire the long, low and run-down residence next door that brings the size of their growing estate to almost 2.75 prime and private acres with sweeping views over Tinseltown. For 45 or so years, the property was owned by semi-shady music industry veteran Artie Ripp.

Set up a cracked driveway that sweeps up the hillside to a large motor court and three car garage, the existing single-story house sits on 1.1 mostly flat acres, measures 4,566 bedraggled square feet, according to listing information, and includes five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The grounds include a good-sized motor court, a semi-detached three car garage, broad flat lawns in both the front and back and a large swimming pool surrounded by a palm tree dotted terrace. ,

We really have no idea what sort of plans the Macy-Huffmans have for the house but listing photos show the interiors are dated, depressing and—let’s get real—a goddamn hot mess of the highest magnitude long in need of a smart architect and nice-gay or lady decorator.

Mister Macy and Miz Huffman also maintain a small residence new The Grove shopping center in L.A. and a remote estate outside of Basalt, CO near the celebrity wintertime playground of Aspen.
