Soon-to-be Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher has sold the house that he (partially) built with his own two hands–it was on and off the market in just under five months. In 2004, Kutcher paid $1 million for the house high above the Sunset Strip and with help from dad undertook a major Duncan McIntosh-designed renovation. Instead of moving in, he married Demi Moore, and finally listed the house for sale in February, asking $2.6 million. He also opened it up for tours, with proceeds going to the Demi and Ashton Foundation to fight human trafficking, and announced that part of the agent’s commission would also go to the Foundation (round of applause for Hilton & Hyland’s Gary Gold). The four bedroom house closed escrow last week, with a final sale price of $2.35 million. It’ll be fun to see whether ousted Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen can do any better with his house in the Mulholland Estates, which he listed in May for $7.2 million. · Ashton Kutcher Selling Charity Tours of Hills House He Built Himself [Curbed LA]
