When you bring up the 1990s, a lot of things spring to mind: Fads like the Scrunchie and Tickle Me Elmo, the music of artists like Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer, dances like the Macarena, catchphrases like “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up,” and iconic movies and TV shows like “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and “Saved By the Bell”.
But one thing that may not spring to mind is the novelty real estate belonging to some of the most notable ’90s stars.
In this article, we’re highlighting 5 properties owned by some of the biggest celebrities of that decade — and if you don’t like any of them, then you can just “talk to the hand”.
Now let’s take a look at these homes!
Name of ’90s Star: Jerry Seinfeld
Noteworthy ’90s Role: Jerry on “Seinfeld”

Name of ’90s Star: Pamela Anderson
Noteworthy ’90s Role: C.J. Parker on “Baywatch”
Location: Malibu, CA
Price: $20,000 a week, or $75,000 a month
Notable Information: Located in celebrity haven Malibu Colony, this green home was inspired by Pam’s favorite architect, Lautner, and features a saltwater pool with swim-up wet bar, access to Surfrider Beach, and even iPad control over all the home’s tech.

Noteworthy ’90s Role: Ross Geller on “Friends”

Price: $10.7 million
Bathrooms: 7 (6 full, 1 partial)
Square Footage: 11,000

Name of ’90s Star: Courteney Cox
Noteworthy ’90s Roles: Monica Geller on “Friends”; Gale Weathers in the “Scream” movies
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Price: $2.05 million
Notable Information: Located on the 25th floor of Sierra Towers and previously owned by a number of other celebrities (such as Cox’s former co-star on “Friends,” Matthew Perry), this full-service building sports amenities like a 24-hour front desk, security, and valet service.
Name of ’90s Star: Jason Priestley
Noteworthy ’90s Role: Brandon Walsh on “Beverly Hills, 90210”
Location: Toluca Lake, CA
Price: $2.1 million
Square Footage: 3,266
Notable Information: Built in 1990 and remodeled in 2005, this home was put on the market but didn’t sell, thus it was then removed; is it possible that potential buyers were turned off by the listing photos, which depict some questionable art choices such as “a large painting of French bulldog smoking a cigar and a reproduction of the Grant Wood painting ‘American Gothic,’ with the woman smoking a cigar”?
