Beyond the Big Screen: A Look Into Celebrity Homes
Dick Van Dyke | 1925
$40 Million – Malibu, California
Born as Richard Wayne Van Dyke in December 1925, Dick Van Dyke is a famed actor and comedian who is known for his charm and slapstick comedy. These very qualities he possesses enable The Dick Van Dyke Show to be aired for 6 years. Van Dyke used to run an advertising agency back in 1946 but failed; he decided to pursue acting, the career that would change his life, a year later.
Van Dyke takes credit as a member of the Merry Mutes, a group that performed pantomime acts. His earliest legitimate role was on Broadway in the musical The Girls Against the Boys which led him to bigger roles. With a career built on making people laugh, Van Dyke has amassed enough wealth to buy a $40 million estate in Malibu that boasts 26 rooms, a large outdoor swimming pool, and an exquisite sunroom.
