Jason Bateman and family have a new place to call home!
The actor just snapped up Ernest Borgnine's Beverly Hills estate, which was placed on the market for $3.4 million following his death at age 95 last year, for $3 million!
The former residence of the beloved Hollywood actor was designed by architect LG Scherer and is located on a half-acre lot above Mulholland Drive. The English country-style house boasts 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, hardwood floors, French doors, beamed ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, heated pool, and a guest house complete with a kitchen and living room.
"It was his place of comfort and seclusion, where lots of people came to visit him. [It was] a who's who of Hollywood that came," agent Billy Rose said of the place that Borgnine called home for over six decades.
The property was a "pocket listing," which means Rose had a listing agreement with the seller, but the pad was not entered into a multi-listing system. The seller was the Oscar winner's fifth wife Tova Traesnaes.
For a place that offers views of the whole San Fernando Valley and has Hollywood history, we'd say this was a steal!
