Drew Barrymore came through the fire and came out on top. The child of famous thespians, she grew up around show business, and was already a bona fide star by the time she was seven. Her high-profile early roles in films like "E.T. The Extra-terrestrial", "Firestarter", and "Irreconcilable Differences", made her a media darling, and ended her childhood quickly. She was often in the company of people who were much older than she was, and her parents were anything but stable influences. She began smoking and drinking while still in elementary school, and had graduated to cocaine by the time she was in eighth grade. Two stints in rehab, a suicide attempt, and a successful request for emancipation from her parents, defined her teen years, and it was not until she was in her early 20s that she began to settle down. Since then, she has starred in a string of hit movies, many of which she has produced with her own production company, Flower Films. These projects include, "The Wedding Singer", "Riding in Cars with Boys", "Never Been Kissed", "Charlie's Angels" and its sequel, "50 First Dates", "Fever Pitch", and "He's Just Not That Into You". She recently had her first child with her husband of one year, Will Kopelman, and it seems that the decision to grow her immediate family has resulted in a decision to move, as well. The successful actress and producer recently listed her home in California.
Drew Barrymore's house in Montecito, California is 6,258 square feet. The six bedroom, seven and a half bathroom home is nestled on just over 2 acres of land. The property also features stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, a large, sunny, eat-in kitchen, and multiple fireplaces. There is also a long wrap-around porch attached to Drew Barrymore's house, along with a guesthouse with two floors, a laundry room, a terrace, fruit trees all around the property, and a garage that can hold up to four cars. The home is on the market for $7.5 million, just under $2 million more than she paid for it in 2010. Will the fact that it is Drew Barrymore's house be enough to justify the increase in price? We'll have to wait and see.
