John Leguizamo's Venice Apartment For $949,000

Actor John Leguizamo is selling his Venice penthouse for an asking price of $949,000.

Leguizamo has been in films such as Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet, and lends his voice to the character Sid the sloth in the Ice Age series. The Emmy winner is currently performing his hit show Ghetto Klown on Broadway. He has plans to then take the show on a tour of the USA and South America, reports, which is perhaps why he has decided to part ways with this LA residence.

The 1,399 square-foot penthouse was built in 1989 and remodeled in October 2010. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a fireplace, barbecue and elevator access. A charming spiral staircase connects the large loft space with the step-down living room, which has two-story windows and vaulted ceilings. The residence has terraces off the living room, master bedroom, and loft, which offer city and ocean views. While the kitchen cabinets and the wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedrooms are admittedly not the most stylish, it's refreshing to see a celeb house that doesn't drip with ostentation.

The condo is in a building that has a pool, spa, and a grass yard. Best of all, it's only two blocks from the beach.
