Right about the time rumors began to leak in earnest that Charlie Sheen had contracted the HIV virus, which he confirmed to the world this morning on “The Today Show,” this property gossip heard through the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine that the 50-year-old Tinseltown scion and veteran sitcom star is planning to pare down his property portfolio and sell two of the three mansions he owns in the guard-gated and celebrity favored Mulholland Estates enclave in the Beverly Hills Post Office area. Details are admittedly slim but, so the scuttlebutt goes, Sheen plans to keep the 7,924-square-foot mansion he bought in April 2006 for $7.2 million and sell a 6,625-square-foot semi-Spanish villa he acquired up in October 2012 for $4.8 million from billionaire investor Tom Gores. He also plans to unload his 9,020-square-foot mock-Mediterranean with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms that he picked up in March 2011 for $6,999,999 from Hollywood mover and shaker Mike Medavoy. Until earlier this year, the mansion was occupied by his ex-wife Denise Richards while her Hidden Hills mansion, currently on the market at $7.749 million, was under renovation.
Some of the other high-profile peeps who own big and fancy pads in the Mulholland Estates development include Judith Light and Robert Desiderio, British pop star Robbie Williams, American pop icon Christina Aguilera, businesswoman and former “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Adrienne Maloof, and entrepreneurial hotel heiress Paris Hilton.
Sheen, a property gossip column regular who once raked in as much as $1.9 million per episode as the star of “Two and a Half Men” before he had a highly publicized meltdown in 2011 that got him axed from the wildly popular program, has owned a number of high-priced residences across Los Angeles including a three-bedroom condo in a luxury high-rise along the Wilshire Boulevard corridor near Westwood as well as a celeb-pedigreed estate in Encino he bought in June 2004 for $4.2 million from actress Katey Sagal and sold just about two years later for $6.62 million to television writer/producer Michael Jacobs. The estate, once owned by Al Jolson, was scooped up in 2011 by entertainment news reporter Leeza Gibbons who, in turn, sold it over the summer of 2015 for $5.77 million to its current owner, Jessica Simpson’s mother Tina Drew.
