Paul Reubens’ Mid-Century Home in L.A. Available for $5M

The whimsical midcentury home that once housed the fantastical world of Pee-wee Herman has just hit the real estate market for the first time in nearly four decades. Actor and comedian Paul Reubens, best known for his bow-tied man-child character Pee-wee Herman and the wildly popular children’s television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, purchased the 2,921 square-foot Los Angeles abode back in 1985 for $415,000. Reubens passed away in 2023 at the age of 70 after a battle with cancer.

This one-of-a-kind trophy property, tucked away at the end of a private road in the celeb-studded neighborhood of Los Feliz, is now listed at $4,995,000. The home sits on approximately 1.4 acres and offers complete privacy and 360-degree views of the surrounding canyons and landmarks like the Griffith Observatory and Hollywood sign.

The single-story midcentury ranch-style house contains three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a retro-fabulous kitchen with vintage wallpaper and a built-in breakfast nook. With its abundant windows, tranquil grounds, and celebrity association, this secluded hideaway represents a truly unique slice of Tinseltown history. The next owner will have the chance to add their own chapter to the storybook charm and whimsy of the playhouse that Pee-wee built.
