At age 15, Ariel Winter already has two hit TV shows under her belt, previously starring in "ER" and currently playing Alex Dunphy on ABC's very successful sitcom "Modern Family."

Although Winter plays a role in a more traditional family on TV, the young actress currently lives with her older sister, Shanelle Workman, who is her legal guardian. Workman, along with husband David Barry Gray, just bought a new home in Sherman Oaks for $1.365 million, according to public records.

Winter's family situation was regularly covered in the press a few months back, as her guardianship was debated in court. Things appear to have quieted down, with Winter still settled in with her sister and brother-in-law. Workman and Gray are both working actors as well; Gray recently starred as Todd Palin in HBO's "Game Change," and Workman spent time on the soap operas "One Life to Live" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."

The new Winter-Workman-Gray home is an East Coast traditional style, set back from the street on a gated lot. Built in 1939, the listing claims that the 3,636-square-foot home might have once been the home of silver screen star Mae West.

With five bedrooms and 4.5 baths, the house has plenty of room for Gray and Workman's two children, as well as Winter. Living spaces are generously sized with high ceilings, crown molding and original hardwood floors. The kitchen includes a breakfast room and exit to private patio. Outside, the "entertainer's yard," includes a pool, barbecue area, grassy yard and full guest unit with kitchen and living room.
