Redfin Neighborhood Watch: Do You Want to Be Tom Hanks’ Neighbor?

Yesterday Matt Damon was the star of Redfin Neighborhood Watch – and today he told E! News he is grateful to live next to his buddy, Ben Affleck, saying, “I never looked up at the sky and asked for this life and I’m very lucky that I got it.” Ben lives just up the road on San Remo Drive, which gives their girls a chance to play together often.

Matt and Ben live next to another A-list star that made headlines today: Tom Hanks. Tom will soon go from Saving Private Ryan to Saving Mr. Banks, as today Disney announced the production of Saving Mr. Banks, the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to Mary Poppins. Hanks is set to play the role of Walt Disney, the first time the legend has ever been depicted in a movie. Filming will take place in Los Angeles, so it’s a good thing Tom owns a home in Pacific Palisades. If you’d like to live in this star-studded ‘hood, check out the listings below. Trust us – these are The ‘Burbs you want to be in!

This home has been on-and-off the market since the death of the former owner, Halloween producer Moustapha Akkad, who was killed in a terrorist attack in Jordan. The home boasts a formal living, dining and family room, which leads into a sunny atrium complete with a fire pit. With a pool and spa, built-in BBQ and gazebo, this is the perfect spot to entertain your A-List neighbors. The Mediterranean design, complete with crown moldings and marble flooring, makes the home feel like it was pulled straight out of The Davinci Code.

    What distinguishes the Redfin Neighborhood Watch category from Redfin Recos? Seems that those categories could be collapsed together. Just curious, and enjoying the posts regardless, since I grew up in L.A. (Also, it’s a tiny thing against the 225 posts currently in Uncategorized!)
