Probst Buys Gene Autry’s Old Digs

Jeff Probst, host of Survivor, is apparently on the move. According to the Los Angeles Times, Probst laid out a cool $5 Mil for his new Studio City home. Was it worth it? Well, sounds like it to me!

[singlepic id=430 w=320 h=240 float=left]The home is a two story Monterey style home sitting on over three and a half acres. The home itself is about 8000 sq. feet (man that’s a lot of house to clean!) and has 5 bedrooms, 7 (yes, SEVEN) bathrooms, a media room for him to check is suave looks on Survivor, a breakfast room and, of course, a wet bar. There is also a swimming pool of course to cool off in during the very hot San Fernando Valley summer months, and a guest house in the back. The home was built back in 1949 (Most of the homes out in the San Fernando Valley were built around this time) and was placed on the market about a year ago starting price 6.9 million. Looks like Jeff knows how to haggle!

[singlepic id=429 w=320 h=240 float=right]Gene Autry, the former owner, was behind many of the songs we sing around the holidays… you know the staples… “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “Frosty The Snowman”, “Here Comes Santa Claus” and many others. He died about 13 years ago, in 1998. He not only has 5 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but he has his very own museum dedicated to Western Heritage, and the singing cowboy himself.
