Tori Spelling is slumming it. The actress, who grew up in papa Aaron’s 100-plus-room Beverly Hills spread, just bought her first house—and it’s got a mere 14 rooms. Surrounded by flower gardens with lavender and English roses, the two-story dwelling has just three fireplaces, one library, one guest apartment, and a single jade green pool. (Jeeb Naiman-O’Reilly and Grace Lucero of Nelson Shelton had the listing.) Built in 1948, the secluded 3,500-square-foot roost sits above Sunset Strip — near Leonardo DiCaprio’s new lair — and features sweeping views of L.A. and the Pacific. —Tricia Johnson
