Kat Von D’s ‘Cheaper By the Dozen’ Movie Mansion Up for Sale for $15 Million

Steve Martin not included.

Tattoo artist Kat Von D has put her Victorian Los Angeles mansion – which also happens to be the setting for the 2003 film “Cheaper By the Dozen” – up for sale for a whopping $15 million.

While the 12,000+ square foot property looked cozy and family-friendly in the film adaptation, photos in the listing show Von D, 39, transformed the space into a horror movie set chic with a personal touch, TMZ first reported.

The lush landscaping greatly dampens any real nightmare vibe, but the blood-red outdoor pool and brickwork — not to mention the statues and a slew of peaked roofs — give even the marketing photos a drastic energy.

Interested buyers will have a lot more to work with than a vampire aesthetic, however: the three-story main house has 11 beds, 8½ baths and is located in Los Angeles proper. It was built in 1896, which gave it many years to accumulate real ghosts in addition to spooky decor.

There is a separate car shed on the property.

A separate shed on the property also includes two bedrooms and a bathroom above a garage. In total, the closed house has seven chimneys.

“The traditional floor plan provides a large living room that seamlessly extends to the library/den and formal parlor/lounge,” the listing reads, adding that the dining room is lined with wainscoting and leaded stained glass. .

The gardens and swimming pool are accessible by numerous exits, as well as a secret door hidden inside a bar.

On the top floor there is another living space which doubles as a theatre, its stage with the original railings, with a bar and kitchenette and a “turret side drama room”.

The modern multi-zone HVAC system has been “carefully installed” so as not to disturb the original wood and plaster.
