Sitcom Star Puts Multi-Million Dollar Bachelor Pad on the Market
Okay, the super sporty property is more of a 'Bachelor Estate' than a 'Bachelor Pad,' but "That '70s Show"’s Wilmer Valderrama is ready to move on.
Wilmer Valderama, the sitcom star who used the small fortune he made starring on That '70s Show to invest in real estate, has put his last, biggest and most expensive property on the market. It’s a six-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, three-structure compound on a 2.2 acre lot in Tarzana. He’s asking $3.495 million for it.
It’s really the grounds that distinguish the property. They include vast lawns, mature trees, a beach-entry pool and spa with a waterfall grotto and water slide (reportedly worth $300,000), plus a professional, fully lighted tennis and basketball court in addition to a regulation sand volleyball court with a sand-misting system.
This consummate sports-loving bachelor pad is befitting the actor who loves to throw parties, and has been reported to have dated everyone from Jennifer Love Hewitt to Demi Lovato, with Ashlee Simpson, Lindsay Lohan and Mandy Moore in between.
In addition to squiring hot young actresses, Valderrama has been busy with recurring roles on TV shows such as Suburgatory, Raising Hope, Awake, Wizards of Waverly Place and Royal Pains, as well as films including Fast Food Nation and Larry Crowne.
When not on the set, he’s been kicking back in the approximately 5,000-square-foot main house, which has three large bedrooms, two with fireplaces. This house also features a four-car, collector's-style garage and rooftop deck with a barbecue.

The other buildings on the property include a 1,700-square-foot, two-bedroom guesthouse and a 2,300-square-foot multi-purpose structure which includes an office, conference room/lounge, a game room and a home fitness room. There are also several utility/storage buildings.
Property records show that Valderrama bought the compound in June 2005 for $3,525,000, from action star Chuck Norris. The current asking price of $3.495 million indicates that he’s willing to take a $30,000 loss. Within the last month it seems he took a $209,000 loss for an Encino ranch house he bought for $1,099,000 in 2006 then sold $890,000. Perhaps he’s just tired of landlord/property manager duties. They can be distracting.
Andrew Manning of Prudential California Reality is representing the property. It’s “truly a magnificent private compound,” he says. “Perfect for a multi-family situation or anyone looking to escape to the good life.”
