Just like actors are replaced after a few seasons on television shows, the house on the 2008-2011 reality show, “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” has seen its last season. While the couple, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, purchased the property in 2008 for $2.945 million, they sold the property for $2.5 million in December and moved into their new Malibu house they purchased this fall. Many of the avid fans of the program were sad to see the home leave the program since it was one of the best actors and solid characters on the show.
The new $2.4 million home is in Malibu and offers far less room for the couple with a growing family. While it has 1.75 acres for expansion that has organic gardens and native landscaping, the square footage of the living quarters dropped from 6,718 square feet to 2,052 to 2300 square feet, depending on where you gather your facts.
Some sources show the new home at 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths while others show 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. Either way, the couple lost a minimum of 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the move. It’s difficult to say why the two downsized, but maybe the 1953 property held other features, that caught the reality queen’s interest.
The age of the home is also under debate with several sources listing it as built in 1953 and others noting its conception as the 1960s. All sources agree that the home resides at Dume Drive in Malibu and that it has vaulted ceilings in the living room, custom sliding doors to the deck and bamboo floors.
Pictures of the kitchen reveal avocado cabinets with some of the countertops granite-like and others of butcher’s block. While the listing information show the home remodeled, the colors and design in the kitchen smacks of the 1960s.
Perhaps that’s why Tori loved it. It might remind her of “Paw paws” home or other near and dear relative who was a decade behind in décor. Others think it might be dozed in the future for a larger more glamorous structure befitting the reality star she is.
