Ten months after his death, Willie Garson’s California home is on the market. While Garson is best known for strutting his stuff on the streets of Manhattan as Stanford Blatch, the late actor made his home in California. 

Garson’s home, located in Valley Village, California, is cute and quaint with a fair bit of personality. It isn’t a sprawling estate. Instead, Garson’s former abode boasts three bedrooms, and three bathrooms stretched across just over 1,600 square feet. The ample backyard offers a pool with a spa and a small pool house. According to the New York Post, the home was built in the 1920s. 

Garson purchased the residence in 2005 for just over $1 million. Sotheby’s International Realty listed the house for $1.7 million. Valley Village is located just 12 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
