Celebrity Living for Under $1 Million

- — Besides large pools, high security and untouched gourmet kitchens, most celebrity homes have something else in common: a big price tag.

From Anderson Cooper's $3.79 million penthouse to Jennifer Aniston's $42 million former pad, celebrity real estate is nearly always priced in the high seven figures.

However, with some digging, we've found some recognizable stars whose homes are a little more modestly priced. Priced where mere mortals would have a shot at owning it. Maybe. These are all homes owned by stars that sold for under a million. Take a look:

John Krasinski

Purchased for: $1,050,010

Sold for: $880,000

When John Krasinski picked up this modest bungalow in 2006 for $1,050,000, he had a year under his belt playing sarcastic coworker Jim Halpert on TV's hit mockumentary, "The Office" Built in 1926, Krasinski's home is the perfect bachelor pad with just two bedrooms, two baths and a little over 1,200 square feet of living space. As Krasinski's role in "The Office" and his relationship with British actress Emily Blunt heated up, he listed the home on the West Hollywood real estate market for $945,000. Three years later the "Country English-style" home, pictured below, sold for a loss at $880,000.

 

Kaley Cuoco

Purchased for: $1,355,000

Sold for: $822,500

Here's another TV star who sold her digs for under $1 million. Kaley Cuoco's home in Sherman Oaks was first listed at $995,000 and eventually sold well under the listing price, even after a price cut. Cuoco, who stars on the Emmy-nominated comedy "The Big Bang Theory," bought the 3-bedroom, 2-bath Spanish home for $1,355,000 in 2005, after ending her role on ABC's "8 Simple Rules." The private home, below, features "park-like" grounds, hardwood floors and period details from its 1937 construction date.
