As a young actress like Ariel Winter, you hope that people will come to recognize you for your body of work, and that you will enjoy a long and varied career full of awards and critical accolades. Ariel Winter has the career and the accolades, but a funky home life has meant that recognition has come for some very unpleasant reasons. The fifteen-year old actress has been acting since she was six, and first gained attention with a series of high profile recurring roles on such television shows as "So NoTORious" and "ER". She also played supporting roles in such films as "One Missed Call" and "Speed Racer". In addition, she has enjoyed a very prolific animation career, providing voice over work for such feature-length cartoons as, "Ice Age: The Meltdown", "Over the Hedge", "Horton Hears a Who!", and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs". She has also voiced the character of Gretchen, among other characters, on the popular cartoon series, "Phineas and Ferb", since 2007, and is currently the voice of Sofia on "Sofia the First". She has gained an even wider fan base over the last few years, appearing on the hit series, "Modern Family". With all of her success, it would stand to reason that she would be known for her series of acting successes. However, all of that success has been overshadowed by an ugly custody battle involving her mother. After allegations of abuse, she began living with her older sister, and an official trial is scheduled for the fall. Recently, she and her sister's family moved into a larger home.
Ariel Winter's house is 3, 636 square feet and has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The home houses Miss Winter's older sister and brother-in-law, and their two children, as well. Ariel Winter's house is two stories, and, in addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms, contains a kitchen with a breakfast nook, a private patio, and a large pool and backyard area. There is also a guest house with its own kitchen and living room. The home also features hardwood floors, high ceilings, and massive windows in almost everyone room. Ariel Winter's house cost $1.365 million. With the uncertainty of whether the court will award her mother or her sister custody, only time will tell whether investing in a larger house was a wise move or not.
