Kat Von D’s ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ movie mansion on sale for $15M

Steve Martin not included. Tattoo artist Kat Von D has listed her Victorian LA mansion — which also happens to be the set of the 2003 flick “Cheaper by the Dozen” — for a cool $15 million. While the over 12,000-square-foot property looked warm and familial in the movie adaptation, listing photos show that Von D, 39, has transformed the space into a chic horror movie set with a personal touch, TMZ first reported. The lush landscaping significantly mutes any real nightmare vibes, but the blood-red outdoor swimming pool and brick work — not to mention statues and a multitude of peaked roofs — give even the marketing photos Draculean energy. Interested buyers will get a lot more to work with than a vampire aesthetic, though: The three-story main home has 11 beds, eight full baths and is located in Los Angeles proper. It was built in 1896, giving it plenty of years to accumulate actual ghosts in addition to spooky decor. A separate carriage house on the property also features two bedrooms and a bathroom over a garage. In total, the gated home includes seven fireplaces. “The traditional floor plan offers a grand salon that seamlessly flows to the library/den and formal living room/sitting room,” the listing noted, adding that the dining room is lined with paneling and leaded stained-glass windows. The gardens and pool area can be accessed through numerous exits, as well as a secret door hidden inside a bar. On the top floor, there is another living space that doubles as a theater with a stage featuring the original footlights, with a bar, kitchenette and a “dramatic turret side room.” The modern multizone HVAC system was “painstakingly installed” so as not to disturb the original wood and plasterwork.
