This Hollywood Hills house, once so sad and shabby, has really bounced back and is now looking good enough for celeb attention. Leading man James Marsden (X-Men, 30 Rock) has just snapped up the wonderful midcentury house, by prolific architect Edward Fickett, in the architecturally gifted Nichols Canyon neighborhood. Built in 1959, the post-and-beam-style house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, concrete-slab floors, walls of glass, a fully updated kitchen, and a swimming pool and fire pit in the backyard, with no rear neighbors. Marsden paid $1.8 million.
