Actress Mary Steenburgen and her 25-year-old director/writer/producer son, Charlie McDowell, have paid $550,000 for an 886-square-foot condominium unit in West Hollywood, Calif.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the mother-son duo's purchase of the one-bedroom condo unit in WeHo. Indeed, public records show that Steenburgen and McDowell, who is the son of Steenburgen's ex-husband, actor Malcolm McDowell, closed on the purchase of the unit on July 8 with the deed being recorded on August 5.

The unit has one bath and is in a building that was constructed in 1929, according to public records. We confess a soft spot for Charlie McDowell; he has two immensely talented parents and comes off in interviews as being extremely down-to-earth and likable -- which makes us wonder, what on earth is this guy doing in Hollywood? McDowell recently was revealed to be dating actress Kristen Chenoweth. He's shown here with his mom and his stepdad, actor Ted Danson. We have written many times about Steenburgen and Danson's various residences, most recently on July 30.
