Survivor: Jeff Probst Buys Gene Autry’s House

April 25, 2011 10:00 AM by Ryan Haidet

Just like Survivor switches locations for different seasons, host Jeff Probst is making a move of his own to a new address.  He recently bought a house in Studio City, California, for $5 million.  But it’s not just any house.  It’s the one that was once owned by Gene Autry.  How big is Probst’s new digs?  What other elements are features of the property?  Read on for more details…

According to the Los Angeles Times, the two-story Monterey-style home sits on 3.68 acres.  It is approximately 8,000 square feet with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a media room, breakfast room and a wet bar.  The property also features a guesthouse and an outdoor swimming pool.  The home, which was built in 1949, was placed on the market about a year ago at a price tag of $6.9 million.

Autry, the former owner, was behind the well-known song “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.”  He is also known for two other holiday hits — “Frosty The Snowman” and “Here Comes Santa Claus.”  The singer/actor has five different stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — one in each of the five categories.  He died at the age of 91 in 1998.

Probst has hosted Survivor for 22 seasons.  Two more editions have been ordered by CBS and will film this summer in undisclosed locations.

Survivor: Redemption Island continues on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m.  The two-hour finale and live one-hour reunion show arrive on Sunday, May 15.
