Sheen mansion snapped up by 'Big Bang' actor

Gawker reports that “Big Bang Theory” star Simon Helberg and former “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen now have more in common than CBS: Helberg just purchased Charlie’s old digs.

The renovated L.A. mansion has been on the market since 2009, when Charlie and then-wife Brooke Mueller listed it for nearly $3.7 million.

Real estate blog The Real Estalker reports that Helberg and wife Jocelyn Towne paid just $2.9 million for the Mediterranean-style abode last month.

The 4,179 square feet, walled and gated house features four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It also boasts a pool, multiple fireplaces, sun porch, library and entertainment systems. (Goddesses not included - this isn’t the notorious so-called “Sober Valley Lodge.”)

The mansion is located in the star-studded Los Feliz neighborhood, and shouldn’t be confused with Sheen’s recent dwellings; that’s in Sherman Oaks. And according to Radar Online, Charlie’s moving out of the Warlock Lair and into another home in the same gated community.

    You'd think these celebrities would realize how fleeting fame is and plan accordingly. Instead, they continue to spend as if their income will continue to rise year after year.

      Agreed. One hit tv show and he assumes he'll have a career when it is done? He should be saving his money, not spending it all on property taxes.

      It's always been fancy. I question why anyone lets ME live there.

    Went to the pics of the house– awesome place. He got a great estate. May not be a "mansion" but this home is a real beauty. I had to think for a bit about who the guy was when I saw the pic, doesn't look a lot like his Howard character. Nice looking guy. In this mansion he'll definitely have room for his grand piano- he is a gifted pianist– and no, according to the other articles, Sheen NEVER lived here. His wife bought it as an investment and lived there for a while after they separated. But no indication Sheen ever lived there.

      You need to look up the definition of 'has-been' in the dictionary, friend.

    Not criticizing Charlie, but how can you NOT be in the most awesome house ever when you make nearly 2 million a show?

    My house is a little over 1,000sq ft less, 7 acres and can't see my neighbor's. Has a pool and a 350 acre pond/lake in the back. Only paid $320,000, I think I got the better deal.

      Thanks! I was thinking of the episode where Teddy died in Charlie's bed and the CSI team came into his room with a blacklight . . . That was a very funny episode.

    That hous NEVER belonged to Charlie. It belongs to an LLC operated by his ex-wife, her friend, and mother. It was NEVER community property nor had anything to do with Charlie and was NOT where he went crazy and had his bimbos. So this headline is totally wrong. But I guess, puttin that info out there wouldn't have gotten the story any clicks.

    ...and the home came with an added bonus of a kilo of cocaine, oozing from the walls.

    Get a Hazmat crew out there for a thorough scrub-down before you move in – and a drug-sniffing dog so you don't get busted with a forgotten stash one day.

    At the least it will be a good real estate investment. the history of the house will help in the resale of it. Hope he gets some enjoyment out of it. If only the the walls could talk!! : )
