Johnny Depp has put his fabulous downtown LA home on the market for a cool US$12.78 million ($16.75 million Canadian). This spectacular property was created out of five linked penthouse units, giving the star a one-of-a-kind, nine-bedroom home.

With Depp’s home on the market, we wondered what the roughly the same amount of dough might buy him here in Hollywood North. From opulent West Side houses to a multimillion-dollar downtown condo, we think we’ve found Johnny Depp the real estate equivalent of Willy Wonka’s golden ticket.
