Pee-wee Herman's real life playhouse

The home of Paul Reubens, the man behind Pee-wee Herman who died last summer, is now on the market, and it looks absolutely stunning. Link to an article on is here.

The 1957 midcentury modern house in Los Feliz, CA has 360-degree views of Los Angeles, and is listed for $4,995,000.

Reubens' projects, in particular his TV show Pee-wee's Playhouse and first movie Pee-wee's Big Adventure, have always had such a strong aesthetic component, it shouldn't be a surprise that he has such great taste.
