Charlie Chaplin, Robert Downey Both Called This Home
A realty "Twilight Zone" moment perhaps: This Spanish-style house was built in 1926
for Charlie Chaplin and later owned by actor Robert Downey Jr., who of course played him the 1992 movie "Chaplin" and, as Hollywood legend goes, bought the place to help get into character.
It's now on the market at $1.725 million -- and after one day went into escrow. Backup offers are being sought.
Totally restored and updated, the 2,728-square-foot house in the Hollywood Hills has the original beamed ceiling in the living room. The home has three bedrooms and a two-story master suite with dual bathrooms -- we suspect a later addition.
The home also was once owned by reality TV star Kelly Osbourne, daughter of Ozzie and Sharon, whose trademark is her frequently changed hair color.
The property is listed with the Altman brothers -- Josh and Matthew -- of Hilton & Hyland Realty, Beverly Hills.
