Actor Ben Stiller and his wife have placed their compound in the Outpost Estates area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills for $12,500,000.
Credit where credit is due, and we have to give a lot of credit lately to the Real Estalker, who has been at the absolute top of "her" game, with tons and tons of scoops of A-list celebrities. Stiller is just one of many of those, and Your Mama yesterday broke the story (but really broke the story back on May 20, before Stiller's property even went on the market) of Stiller's listing of his longtime, three-property compound on Castilian Drive in Outpost Estates.
As Your Mama noted back in May, Stiller assembled three parcels to create his compound. In late 1999, he purchased the principal parcel and house -- a six-bedroom (and six-bath), 5,334-square-foot, Spanish-style house on a 0.29-acre (12,628-square-foot) lot -- for $1,825,000, according to public records. Then in 2001, Stiller paid $1,840,000 for a five-bedroom (and five-bath), 4,062-square-foot house that was built in 1930 and that sits on a 0.28-acre (12,197-square-foot) lot, according to public records. As part of that same 2001 transaction, Stiller also picked up *another* adjacent 0.29-acre (12,628-square-foot) lot (PIN # 5549-010-017) that was vacant, and on which he constructed a one-bedroom, 1,161-square-foot guest house in 2003.
So in all, Stiller's compound measures 86/100 of an acre, according to public records. Other features on the estate, according to the minimally written listing information, include lush landscaping and grounds "that rival the Beverly Hills Hotel" (that's one bold statement), two separate homes (one an authentic Spanish-style that was "meticulously restored" and the other a "stunning Mediterranean redefined with a contemporary point of view," a one-bedroom guest house, a pool, an outdoor dining/living area and a beautiful grassy yard, according to listing information. In all, the estate has 10 bedrooms and 11 baths, listing information says.

As Your Mama also noted, Stiller weirdly owns a 1,608-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Studio City area that he purchased in 2006 for $1,100,000. He also was reported to have been the buyer of a $10,000,000 duplex in Manhattan, which we wrote about last September.
We will keep you posted on if Stiller gets anywhere near his desired asking price for this compound (doubtful), and where he is off to -- including whether that might involve owning other property in the L.A. area or not. Stay tuned.
