Charlie Sheen wants Brooke Mueller to move back into her Beverly Hills home.

The 'Anger Management' star - who has been locked in a bitter custody war with Brooke over four-year-old twins Bob and Max - previously announced he intended to sell the Mulholland Estates mansion, which he bought for her and is situated close to his own home, but he has now relented as he wants to keep the boys nearby when she regains custody of them.

A source told RadarOnline.com: ''Charlie now wants Brooke to move back into the house after she regains custody of the boys.

''It's important to Charlie that the boys be in the same neighbourhood and close by. So, he is no longer threatening to sell the house. Brooke stays in the house during her custodial visits with the twins and she is looking forward to moving back in.''

Charlie previously wanted to sell the $4.8 million house - where the twins are currently living with their uncle Scott Mueller - and it was expected Brooke would be out the house before the end of last year.

A source previously said: ''Charlie knows someone that is extremely interested in buying the house. He hasn't formally listed the house for sale, because he is hoping to just do a private sale, without having the bother of putting it on the market.

''Brooke might be out of the house by the end of the year. If Charlie's potential buyer backs out, he will formally list it. The house will likely sell very quickly because inventory is extremely low, and Mulholland Estates is a very desirable place to live.''

Brooke - who has been to rehab 20 times - lost custody of the twins in May last year when she was put under involuntary psychiatric hold, stemming from an alleged drug overdose.

Bob and Max were being looked after by another of Charlie's ex-wives, Denise Richards, until they displayed violent behaviour to her own children, and were placed in the care of Brooke's brother Scott.

Charlie - who married Brooke in 2008 before divorcing her in 2011 - also has a grown-up daughter Cassandra from a previous relationship and daughters Sam, nine, and Lola, eight, with Denise. He recently got engaged to girlfriend Brett Rossi.
