Christopher Meloni, with $31M net worth, puts 'haunted' Hollywood Hills house on the market for $6.5M
The house was once the on-and-off home of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. In the past year, a strong rumor has been doing the rounds that the house is haunted after multiple previous owners complained of strange occurrences
Christopher Meloni has put his supposedly haunted Hollywood Hills house on the market for $6.495M. Christopher and his wife of a quarter-century, interior designer Sherman Williams, have decorated the foyer with a massive Buddha since moving into the home.
The 'Oz' star, according to Celeb Worth, is worth a whopping $31.2 Million, with yearly earnings amounting to $5.2 Million. According to TheRichest, he earns a total of $395,000 for each episode on 'Law & Order: SVU'.
Christopher purchased the sprawling five-bedroom estate for $5.25M, according to a Variety report. The house was once the on-and-off home of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. In the past year, a strong rumor has been doing the rounds that the house is haunted after multiple previous owners complained of strange occurrences.
'The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet' ran on ABC from 1952 to 1966. Apart from residing in the house, the Nelsons also used it for exterior shots of their TV home on their iconic sitcom.
The Interior scenes of their house were shot on a soundstage, but the sets were made specifically to resemble rooms in the Nelsons' actual home. Nine years after the show ended, Ozzie died in bed at the Hollywood Hills house.
Three post-Nelson owners complained of paranormal experiences in the house to their realtor Billy Rose, according to the Los Angeles Times in 2013.
Instances like an unexplainable rose fragrance suddenly emanating in some rooms to locked doors mysteriously thrown wide open were reported, claimed Billy. Later owners also would say that Ozzie's toy train set that remained in the house as a legacy piece long after his death would randomly turn on at night.
The speculation about ghosts became very strong after a point and Billy took on a full-disclosure stance with prospective buyers. "I would always make a disclosure that there was a legend that the house was haunted," said Billy.
One owner even reportedly hired a medium and supposedly confirmed that the ghosts in the house were copacetic with new residents.
Originally built in 1916, the home contains seven bathrooms as well as a poolside guest house in the luxurious backyard. The yard is lush with greenery but the pool and a guest house are located in a massive sunken patio laid with throwback chic red brick tile.
Christopher's 5,283-square-foot property features a maid's room downstairs and four ensuite bedrooms upstairs including the one Ozzie died in. A long stone-tiled driveway stretches in front of the garage and has been fitted with a basketball hoop so residents can get that extra bit of exercise.
