Good ”Friends” make good neighbors. David Schwimmer — who has been house hunting for more than a year — finally has someplace to call a second home. The actor purchased the most expensive home in L.A.’s trendy Hancock Park. (No word on whether he plans to sell his Hollywood Hills home of six years.) Built in 1926, the 11,300 square foot residence is big enough to accommodate all of his Friends — and then some. In addition to the master wing, which has its own sitting room, separate dressing room, and two fireplaces, the main house boasts seven guest suites. And there’s much more: a formal living room with 15 foot ceilings, a media room with a fireplace, a formal dining room with a butler’s pantry, and a billiards room. The spectacular abode sits on about an acre of land and features a separate guest house, tennis court, garden, and pool. Now here’s a guy you can buddy up to!
