People Magazine just named Channing Tatum the Sexiest Man Alive for 2012! The Magic Mike star struts his stuff around the Hollywood Hills, where he owns a 2,538 square foot home that he purchased in 2008 for $2.6 million. The home sits on a private lot surrounded by lush foliage, creating a quiet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. It features a curved teak staircase, wraparound terraces and 12-foot pitched wood and beam ceilings that give it the feel of a Balinese tree house.
The home is a fitting location for this stud muffin, considering Channing’s efforts to raise money for rainforest preservation. It is located on Hermits Glen, in an area famous for the “hermit of Laurel Canyon,” Frederick Shaw, a nudist who often walked around his property naked. Let’s hope Channing keeps up the tradition.
If you’d like to experience the magic of living next to the sexiest man alive, there are several homes in the neighborhood that are currently for sale; check out the listings below! Which one is your favorite?

This post-and-beam-style abode has the same jungle vibe as Channing’s home; perhaps you two can share decorating tips! According to Redfin Agent Simone Poingsett, the master bedroom “is located on the first floor at the back of the house and has its own private balcony and access to the upper side patio. The backyard is very spacious, tranquil and beautifully landscaped. The whole property is very private.” Perhaps Tatum will offer to teach you a few dance moves on the spacious and private grounds.
