Kat Von D inks deal for the house from “Cheaper by the Dozen”

Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D may seem to belong in a gothic castle or a rock star penthouse, but she’s just nabbed herself an unexpectedly wholesome new home.

According to Trulia, the inker and beauty mogul has just splashed out $6.5 million on a historic, three-story Victorian home in Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood. Oh, and it’s the home from the 2003 movie “Cheaper by the Dozen”, so naturally it comes with bedrooms aplenty — 11 in fact.

Built in 1890, and moved to its current spot in 1915, the 12,565-square-foot spread comes with 10 bathrooms, a formal living room, a library, a dining room with linen-fold paneling and stained-glass windows, quirky painted ceilings and murals, a hidden bar room with hand-carved walls and a secret exterior door, a large eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry, a pool, a two-bedroom carriage house located over the garage, and what looks like original details galore.
