Ricky Schroder was a child star who grew to fame on the hit TV show, Silver Spoons, where I was jealous of Schroder's toy train that could be ridden around the house. I always wanted one in my house but no luck till this day. If you dont know what I am talking about, check out the clip at 1:19.
The home measures 5 Beds/7 Baths on 9, 166 sqft on a total lot size of 0.43 acres built in 1987. It seems that Schroder's family purchased this home brand new in 1987 shortly after Silver Spoons ended with Schroder attending Calabasas high school for his senior year. The family later sold on December 7, 1989 for $2,816,000. The home today looks like a Vegas nightclub with neon lights throughout the house included near the pool, bar/billiards room, and an overall resort like feel. I am not sure and doubt that the house existed like this back when Schroder lived in it and was probably updated with the most recent owners. The listing description states:

After the Calabasas home, Schroder got married in 1992 and built a custom ranch house in Colorado on a 55,550 acre plot with his new wife. Then they got into the house flipping game and fixed and sold properties in Scottsdale, Arizona and Colorado. Then they moved back to California to live in Topanga in March 2005 with their last known transaction was the purchase of a Malibu home in 2007.
