Old Hollywood was the epitome of glamor. The Golden Age stars from the '20s to the '50s captured the world's imagination with their palatial residences, decadent party pads, and secluded ranches. Their way of living seemed unattainable to mere mortals, as befitted entities most often perceived as silver shadows on a movie screen.

In truth, the homes of the stars aren't always out of reach - though it admittedly depends on what your definition of "in reach" is. It's true that star homes are unlikely to be as cheap as some historical figures' houses, but prices in the $1-$3 million range are not uncommon, putting them within the grasp of folks who are merely "well off," not ultra-rich.

As for the rest of us? Well, we'll always have Google Street View - at least, as long as the hedges aren't too high.
