Read on to see how the young actress rose to success and achieved so much, including home ownership.

Ashley Benson Hollywood Home

On November 2012, at age of 22, Ashley Benson purchased a stunning home in Hollywood Hills for $2.2 million. Her French Normandy-style property was built in 1938. With 3,085 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, the home is relatively small in comparison to other homes in the area. What it lacks in space, it makes up with amenities. The gated 2-story home features a wood-paneled library, a fireplace in the dining room, an updated kitchen with marble counters, coffered ceilings, a new pool and a spa in her home (LA Times). Ashley’s home has a long list of former celebrity owners. The home was purchased from screenwriter-director Dan Harris, and was previously owned by Australian pop star Kylie Minogue and British singer Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics (80s music duo with Annie Lennox).

Ashley would fall in love with the historic homes in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. Whether she went with a French Normandy, Victorian or Georgian-style home, her 1930s-40s historic home would boast coffered ceilings, majestic crown moldings, and multiple fireplaces with stately mantles. Baltimore’s Anton North neighborhood is an ideal location for a city girl like Ashley – to keep her close to the city’s hot spots, restaurants, and nightlife.
