Charlie Sheen HousesIt seems Charlie Sheen wants four of his children from two ex-wives living closer to him, so much so that he is willing to purchase homes for Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller in the gated Los Angeles community off Mulholland Drive.

That means selling the house he shared with Mueller. They put their 4,179-square-foot Mediterranean-style marital home on the market for $3.697 million, and the price has now dropped to $3.55 million.

While rumors have circulated about whether Mueller and Sheen have been spending time together, it's clear that he wants to remain close to the women in his life.

In most circumstances, having kids of divorce living nearby both parents is in the best interests of the children, say some family law attorneys who spoke with our friends at AOL Real Estate.

"When you have small children in elementary school, the closer they live to each parent the easier it is on the children," says marital and family law attorney Roberta Stanley, a partner at Brinkley Morgan in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
