Nicole Richie and her Good Charlotte rocker husband, Joel Madden, are selling their ‘spare’ Los Angeles-area estate, asking $1,875,000.
The duo have two kids – and two homes – together. Their main residence is a 4 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom, 5,380 square foot pad elsewhere in Los Angeles that they purchased together in May 2009 for $1,912,000. That home has an incredible backyard for entertaining, and Ms. Richie showcased it in a recent Domaine Home feature.
With a primary residence that’s just perfect for the “House of Harlow” designer and her family, it’s now time to cast off the residence that Madden bought on November 16, 2004 for $1,800,000.
The gated two-level Spanish Colonial estate sits on a tree-lined street in northwestern Glendale. The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,281 square foot home has been meticulously restored to its 1930′s splendor.
The home’s features include an oversized formal living room, a massive kitchen with center island and high-end touches, a formal dining room and gorgeous French doors throughout.
Perfect for Southern California living, an outdoor Lanai has stylish drapery that provides added seclusion and is perfect for outdoor entertaining and dining.

Journalist, author and TV personality, anchor of 'Anderson Cooper 360'
6 beds, 5.5 bathrooms, 3,654 square feet on 2.4 acres with a pool
If you’re looking for the perfect “House in the Hamptons,” look no further than Anderson Cooper’s swank home, now for sale for $2,999,000.
Anderson was initially asking $150,000 for use of his 6 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom home from Memorial Day through Labor Day, but he changed his mind and pulled down the “for rent” sign.
No longer a rental summer, Anderson wants to sell the place off for good and he wants nearly $3 million.
A buyer bonus? Cooper owns the place next door, so you won’t just get new Hamptons digs, you’ll get a bonafide star neighbor.
Adding to the value of this gorgeous home, Cooper’s for-sale waterfront pad has some serious Hollywood lore – it’s the very same Hamptons compound where the late Budd Schulberg wrote the Academy Award-winning screenplay for the 1950′s Marlon Brando classic, “On the Waterfront.”
Privately located on Aspatuck Creek in the bucolic hamlet of Quiogue and just minutes from downtown Westhampton Beach, the 2.4 acre property was recently completely renovated and decorated by a well-known designer – Anderson’s mom, Gloria Vanderbilt!
The main house features a waterfront great room with built-ins, a brick fireplace, cedar vaulted ceiling and French doors leading to the waterfront patio. There’s also a cozy den with brick fireplace and 60-inch television, a white chef’s kitchen with honed granite counters, and a dining area where you can watch the swans glide by. With a vaulted ceiling with beams and skylights, large walk-in closet, and spacious bath, the master suite provides a special place to retreat. Three additional bedrooms offer space for guests and there’s also an additional apartment above the garage, complete with a living area, bedroom and full bath.
Outside, you’ll find park-like grounds, a 20×40 heated gunite pool with Jacuzzi, and a quaint pool house with full bath and sitting room (or spare sleeping quarters). This is the perfect spot to spend the summer in the Hamptons!

Beautiful latina actress currently coupled up with Ryan Gosling
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,732 square feet, views
Gorgeous actress Eva Mendes just sold her Hollywood starter home for almost $10,000 over asking.
Property records show that Ryan Gosling’s girlfriend just sold the home on April 21, 2014 for $1,278,630 – which is $9,630 more than the $1,269,000 she was asking for the place when it went on the market in March 2014.
Eva Mendes isn’t the only name on the deed for this home - she actually owned it with her ex-boyfriend George Gargurevich. Eva and George bought the house for $584,000 on December 2, 2002, back when they were happily coupled up in what eventually became an 8-year romance that ended in 2010.
While they never had their “happily ever after,” together, they made a pretty penny on this real estate investment.
This just-sold home is a dramatic and downright funky Mid Century home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom and 1,732 square feet of tropical-inspired living space. Renovated over the course of the decade, the beautifully-designed living space is graced with explosive city views. A true bohemian den, the home has “artful pockets of space for nomadic entertaining…and vintage wall paper, exquisite lighting and European fixtures.”
Like many homes with views of Los Angeles, Mendes’ starter home was brimming with walls of glass that open to multiple outdoor decks. The outdoor gardens have fruit trees, chickens, raised vegetable boxes, an outdoor shower and a cedar hot tub.
Eva hadn’t lived in this particular home in quite a while – she owns and occupies a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home nearby that she purchased in April 2008 for $3.2M. Eva’s hunky boyfriend Ryan Gosling has recently been spotted outside this particular home, squashing rumors that the duo were on the rocks.
Recently, rumors have started circulating that Ryan and Eva are engaged.
Sherman Oaks, CA
3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1,808 square feet, fixer-upper
Nearly a year after ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Lena Headey claimed she had “less than $5″ in her bank account, the actress, who plays Queen Cersei on the hit show, has just purchased a dated fixer-upper in Sherman Oaks, CA for $790,000.
Property records show the deal for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1,808 square foot home closed on April 4, 2014.
In April 2013, Headey opened up about the reality of her financial situation in legal docs related to her 2012 divorce filing from husband Peter Loughran. In the docs, she was petitioning for half of the couple’s $46,000 2011 tax return, saying she needed the money asap to make ends meet for her and their 2 year-old son. The media reports were shocking, since many people figured she was well-compensated for her role as a main character on one of the most popular shows currently on TV.
Her precarious financial situation was exacerbated when she sold her former home in Los Angeles‘ Laurel Canyon-area at a loss. That home was purchased by Headey and her ex-husband for $1,685,000 in June 2008 and sold for $1,349,000 in late 2012.
Her new home isn’t much to look at (by Hollywood standards), but it does have potential. Located in one of the best neighborhoods Sherman Oaks has to offer, the traditional home has a mid-century modern twist and sits on a beautiful and quiet tree-lined street.
Spacious, bright and airy, with a good floor plan and great ‘bones,’ Headey’s new home has a decent-sized kitchen that conveniently opens to the family room for easy entertaining.
A large master suite has ample closets and a private bath.
The backyard has a lovely pool, covered patio and gardens.

Gorgeous actress with breakout roles in Blue Crush, Superman Returns and 21
3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,890 square feet, lap pool
The blonde beauty, who had her breakout role in the surfer flick ‘Blue Crush,’ paid $2,100,000 when she purchased the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom place in 2005. 9 years and one brand new husband later (director Michael Polish), Bosworth is looking to sell and move on.
Bosworth’s private pad is set behind a discreet gate that leads you down a long drive to this contemporary home on over half an acre.
Inside and out, the home has incredible space for entertaining and casual living – and it’s decorated just as you’d expect from the fashionista actress, who has perfected the ‘minimalist chic’ look.
The floor plan is open and flowing, with the dining and living areas seamlessly connected. In the heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen features professional appliances and huge windows that overlook the patio and views beyond.
The home’s 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths include the upstairs master retreat with sitting area, two walk-in closets, spa-like bath with double Carrara marble vanity and a jetted tub.
French doors leads to multiple outdoor areas, including a lap pool and an outdoor living room with incredible light and canyon views.

'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' actor who has found success on the stage and screen
4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3,365 square feet, pool
Actor Tim Curry has just sold his stunning Spanish-style home in Los Angeles for $3.2 million.
‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ actor purchased the place from ‘Frasier’ star David Hyde Pierce in 2006, paying $2 million for the 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,365 square foot home at 4724 Cromwell Avenue.
Under Curry’s ownership, the 1920′s era home underwent an extensive restoration that brought it up to the modern century, all while keeping the period details and charm of the private home that sits on park-like grounds.
Tim Curry has had a successful acting career on the stage and screen, and in the realm of real estate, he seems to have the magic touch. Three of his former estates have gone on to be the homes of other massive celebrities. He sold a house in 2005 to Christina Ricci, another one that he owned is currently Colin Farrell’s Los Angeles home, and most notably, he owned the home at 2666 Aberdeen Avenue that Robert Pattinson just sold to Jim Parsons for $6,375,000.

CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves and his wife, TV personality Julie Chen, have just purchased a beachfront Malibu estate from Microsoft co-founder (and billionaire) Paul Allen, paying $28,800,000. The deal closed on April 2, 2014 – just in time for summer!

Colombian-born ‘Modern Family’ actress Sofia Vergara has just scooped up an Italian-style villa in the heart of Beverly Hills, paying $10.6 million for a 7 bedrooom, 11 bathroom, 11,400 square foot estate.
Vergara has plenty of dough to afford this lavish So Cal spread. According to Forbes, she is the highest paid actor on TV for the second year in a row, hauling in an incredible $30 million between June 2012 and June 2013.
With all those dollars at her disposal, Vergara jumped into real estate and just closed on a gorgeous and grand 90210 estate.
Her new home features a soaring entryway, a wood-paneled study, a spacious Chef’s kitchen with center island and breakfast nook, and a family room with French doors that open to an outdoor entertaining area.
Upstairs, Sofia’s new master suite has a fireplace and separate his-and-hers baths and closets. Just down the hall, there are 2 guest bedrooms with en suite baths, and third large guest suite with balcony, en suite bath, walk-in closet and outdoor terrace with fireplace.

Beverly Hills, CA
Creedence Clearwater Revival rocker and solo artist
9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 16,000 square feet, pool
The home popped up as an off-market ‘pocket listing’ with a $23 million price tag in July 2013.
Nearly 9 months later, a buyer swooped in and made an offer significantly under asking, and the deal closed on March 21, 2014. While Fogerty didn’t exactly sell it for a song, it was $4.4 less than what he’d hope to sell it for.
Purchased by the “Proud Mary” rocker on November 20, 2002 for $2,900,000, the home at 2553 Summitridge Dr. had 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 13,476 square feet at the time he bought it. 10 years later, the home has undergone some extensive renovations that added an additional 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2,500 square feet to the residence.
Now, the home sits on 3 meticulously landscaped acres and features a gated entrance and circular motor court with fountain leading to the garage motor court. Inside, 16,000 square feet of living space includes 9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 2-story foyer with fireplace, double-barrel vaulted main hallway, formal living room with fireplace, formal dining room with wine room, gourmet kitchen, 2-story family room with fireplace, wood paneled library with fireplace, home theater, 2nd floor lounge with wet bar, 4+ car garage and more.
Outside, the property has an incredible entertainer’s yard with a covered loggia with fireplace, mosaic-tiled swimming pool with spa, expansive patio, children’s playground and outdoor dining and cooking areas. There is also a separate guest house with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen.
Fogerty has since moved on to a 7 bedroom, 13,053 square foot estate in Thousand Oaks, CA that he purchased for $9 million in May 2013.

Singer who only wants to have some fun
3 homes totaling over 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres, resort-style pool
After listing for the first time in 2012 and trying to (unsuccessfully) sell her Hollywood Hills home for $15,950,000, Crow’s compound was delisted in December 2013 and just came back on the market with a more down-to-earth ask of $11,950,000.
Set behind private gates, Crow’s Spanish-style compound sits atop a hill and is comprised of 3 houses that total more than 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres. She purchased each home individually in and around 1998, and meticulously combined the properties over the next few years.
The main home is a remodeled and restored ‘Spanish Revival’ with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 2-story entryway, chef’s kitchen, library, wine cellar and music room.
A second home is a Craftsman built in 1909, and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and views of the vistas of Hollywood.
The third home on the 10 acre property is a cottage that dates back to 1885, complete with a oak-floored kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The entire compound is tied together with canyon pathways, trails, a tee pee, campsite, playground, palapas and a resort-style infinity pool.
A true treasure in the heart of Hollywood.
Crow’s had a hard time in the real estate game in recent years. This home has sat on the market for months and months, and her equestrian property in College Grove, TN has also had a hard time finding a buyer, even after more than 2 years and nearly $2 million in price reductions.
The rest of her portfolio includes two off-market properties. One is a $3.6M estate in Nashville, Tennessee and the other is a beachfront escape in Florida.
The listing agent for her Los Angeles estate is Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.
