Ben Stiller is one of those Hollywood-types that manage to remain busy at all times. Whether he is writing a film or series, directing a project, producing someone else's project, or starring in a film, he is almost never still. To date, he has worked on over 50 films (more films than years he has been alive), and he seems to be a rather good box office draw, as his projects have made an average of $73 million per film. He dropped out of college to pursue a career in performance and comedy full-time, and booked his first professional role in the Broadway production of "House of Blue Leaves". He began writing, directing, and producing "mockumentary" style shorts around this time, and the success of some of his short films led to an offer from "Saturday Night Live". He chose to leave "SNL" after four episodes, to focus on short films, and was almost immediately offered his own show on MTV. Though his show's ratings were lackluster, the series went on to win an Emmy Award. He then shifted his focus to directing film, and the rest, is history. He has worked on a steady string of successful comedies, and recently turned his hand to producing web content with the Yahoo! series, "Burning Love", a spoof of "The Bachelor". He also decided to sell off his massive compound in the Hollywood Hills. The first, and larger, section of the compound, sold to action star, Jason Statham, in 2011 for $7.32 million. Mr. Stiller and his wife sold the smaller section in April 2012 for $2.6 million.
Ben Stiller's house in the Hollywood Hills, at least the smaller section, is 4,062 square feet and sits on roughly a 1/3 of an acre of land. The house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It has Spanish-styling with a twist. Ben Stiller's house has large French doors that open onto a wrap-around terrace. The terrace features seating that is built around trees that grow up through the terrace itself. There is also a swimming pool, lush greenery, high ceilings, stucco walls, red tile flooring, and lots of sunlight. Ben Stiller's house is truly gorgeous, and as he seems to be making a move to the East Coast, it will be interesting to see if he can find something to match the beauty of his former digs.
