‘DWTS’ alum Frankie Muniz sells his 1930s hacienda in Arizona for $3.2 million

Actor, musician and recent “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Frankie Muniz has sold his home in Phoenix for $3.2 million.

Set behind walls and gates in the Biltmore area, the Andalusian hacienda-style house dates to 1935.

Original floors, hand-finished walls and beamed ceilings are among features of the 5,300-square-foot house, which has been restored and modernized. Updates include a farmhouse-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and floating shelves.

The master suite comprises his and hers bathrooms, a relaxation room and a boutique-inspired closet. Guest suites are equipped with separate sitting areas. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms.


Outdoor entertaining areas include vine-wrapped and trellis-topped patios, Roman and prayer gardens and a loggia that opens to the swimming pool. Also within two-plus-acres of grounds is a bocce ball court, lawns and mature landscaping.

There’s also a five-car garage.

Monica Monson and Barry Van Patten of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty were the listing agents. Kevin Cieszkowski of HomeSmart represented the buyer.

Muniz, 32, is known for playing the character Malcolm on the long-running sitcom “Malcolm in the Middle.” He has film credits that include “Big Fat Liar” (2002), “Agent Cody Banks” (2003) and “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” (2015).

Away from the screen, Muniz has dabbled in race car driving and music. He and dance partner Witney Carson finished third on the most recent season of the competition show “Dancing With the Stars.”
