At the same time Eve Plumb, better known as Jan from “The Brady Bunch,” was embedding herself in the hearts of middle sisters everywhere, the young actress also made like a Kardashian, ’60s-style, and bought herself a house.
Plumb was just 11 years old when she bought this 850-square-foot bungalow in Malibu for $55,300.
Her parents helped, and this summer Plumb made a splash by selling it for $3.9 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Take that, Marcia.
Plumb is hardly the only child celebrity to hear the siren call of real estate. Here’s a look at stars who bought homes when they were still teens.
Drew Barrymore (age 15)
Drew Barrymore did a lot of things younger than most, including emancipating herself from her parents and, at the tender age of 15, paying half a million dollars for a home between Beverly and Melrose.
She held onto it for more than a decade, and sold in 2001 to actor Edward Norton for $611,000.
The home, which measures 2,500 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, is near North Fairfax Avenue.
That wasn’t a hot address at the time, but in recent years it has become one of L.A.’s coolest strips for shopping and dining.
Miley Cyrus (age 16)
California home prices rose a tad between Drew’s teenage years and those of fellow wild child Miley Cyrus.
Still in her “Hannah Montana” days, Cyrus at Sweet Sixteen sank a whopping $3.4 million into a 4,000-square-foot home near her parents in Toluca Lake, CA. (She later deeded her home to her parents.)
Two years later, the singer paid $3.9 million for a sprawling, mid-century modern home in Studio City. Set on more than an acre with canyon views, it has 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths and a heated, saltwater pool out back.
Now she’s all grown up, but even twerking hasn’t changed Cyrus’ architectural taste. She recently paid $2.5 million for another mid-century modern home, this one just up the hill from Eve Plumb’s old digs in the ‘Bu.
Kylie Jenner (age 17)
Keeping up with her Kardashian sisters came easy to the youngest among them. At 17, Kylie Jenner paid $2.6 million for a home a block away from Kourtney and Khloe, and at 18 she listed it for $3.9 million. (At 19, she cut the price to $3.6 million.)
“It’s been extensively reimagined,” said listing agent Tomer Fridman of Ewing & Associates/Sotheby’s International Realty.
The nearly 5,000-square-foot new home is solar powered, with a movie room, a “glam room” and a master retreat with a spacious walk-in closet plus a shoe-and-purse closet.
The bathroom is where Jenner left her boldest calling card, with black subway tiles, a black-and-white clawfoot tub, and two vanities covered with mirrors.
Justin Bieber (age 18)
Speaking of the Kardashians, Khloe bought a home from Justin Bieber a couple weeks after he stopped being a teenager, in 2014.
Way back when he was 18, Bieber paid $6.5 million for the Calabasas mansion that boasts 10,000 square feet, 7 bedrooms and 8 baths.
This is the neighborhood where he was accused of egging a neighbor’s yard, and where former football star Keyshawn Johnson called the cops on Biebs for speeding.
Word is that Khloe, who paid $7.2 million for the place, was a welcome change.
Daniel Radcliffe (age 18)
Perhaps it’s time to lay aside any worries that the actor better known as Harry Potter has been typecast.
Aside from the fact that he’s starred in a slew of movies since laying down his wand, Daniel Radcliffe also owns not one, but two, multi-million-dollar Manhattan apartments that he bought before he could legally drink vodka.
He paid $4.3 million for an 1,800-square-foot Soho apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It’s registered to both him and his parents — and last year was listed as a rental for $19,000 a month. Take a look inside:
A few months after he bought in Soho, Radcliffe plunked down $4.9 million for a 2,400-square-foot place a short walk away and near the Hudson River.
No mere Muggle could do that.
