March 11, 2011 — -- With no TV show to tape, Charlie Sheen spends his days livestreaming, tweeting and talking up a storm his Beverly Hills bachelor pad. As it happens, all that noise aside, it's not a bad place to be.

Room to chill? But of course: 7,924 square feet. Security to keep out scorned ex-wives, girlfriends and porn stars? Naturally, there's a gate.

Famous neighbors/potential party pals? Plenty: Paris Hilton, Avril Lavigne and Tom Jones, to name a few. (Sheen and Jones crooning "It's Not Unusual?" There's something worth putting on UStream.)

Shortly before Sheen went off the rails, toured his neighborhood with Josh Altman of "Million Dollar Listing," Bravo's reality TV series about coveted homes and the people who sell them. Two bachelor pads a stone's throw away from Sheen's $7.2 million Mulholland Drive mansion show that a single guy with money to burn can live very, very well.

Down the Hollywood Hills from Sheen's home sits Sunset Plaza, a gated community like his own. Out of six mansions, one boasts more than the rest: With 6,000 square feet, four bedrooms, five and a half baths, a multiplex-quality theater and a terrace with an infinity pool overlooking all of Los Angeles, Altman called it a dream celebrity hideaway.

"This place is perfect for a bachelor, a Hollywood hotshot," he said. "It's a modern, sexy, movie star-type of home."

As the saying goes, in real estate, it's all about location, location, location. Sunset Plaza's is ideal for people who like to party.

"The young stars love it because it's close to all the clubs, bars and restaurants," he said. "At the same time, there's privacy: No one can just walk up to your door."

The biggest selling point of this home, though, is the master bedroom, whose two glass walls offer views that make waking up a pleasure, even after an all-night rager.

"In my opinion, it's the sexiest master bedroom in the all of the city," Altman said. "I look at $20 million houses, $30 million houses and this is literally a priceless master bedroom."

Rihanna, Lil Wayne and Matthew Perry all considered buying before the real estate investor who currently owns the home settled down last year.

Now, it's on the market for $6.25 million, or a little more than $1,000 per square foot. In this neck of the woods, unlike the majority of America, the recession hardly hit the housing market.
