Angelic abode!
2 BR, 2.5 BTH home in the Hollywood Hills
Price: Nearly $1.3 million

Brooding TV vampire David Boreanaz (Angel) has found a new place to spend his nights. The WB heartthrob recently bought a 1,768-square-foot home in L.A.’s Sunset Strip area from actress Claudia Christian (Babylon 5). The Cape Cod-style domicile sits on nearly a third of an acre, and is described by brokers as ”a Connecticut farmhouse.” Built in 1936, the compound features a swimming pool as well as guest, hobby, and pool houses. Plus, the pad puts him in the same swanky hood as Mark Wahlberg and producer Joel Silver — in case he wants to invite some of his neighbors over for a bite.
