The house isn’t actually up in the trees, though. It’s located on a property in the Hollywood Hills that has so many trees that Ellen DeGeneres (who owned the place until she sold it to Ledger in 2005 for about $2 million) famously called the home a “tree house.” The house has almost 1,00 square feet of indoor living space and over 2,000 square feet of densely wooded outdoor space.
The property was sold for $2.5 million after Ledger died in 2008. It’s been on and off the market a few times since then, so perhaps some of the Ledger magic is gone at this point.
The most recent listing of the 2-bed, 2-bath property was at $2.99 million, but Hutcherson may have gotten a bit of a deal.
Check out some photos of the place below. The coolest feature is probably the outdoor deck with a large movie screen.
