The youngest Kardashian sister
Khloe recently sold the Tarzana, CA home she shared with estranged husband Lamar Odom to ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress Kaley Cuoco and her new husband Ryan Sweeting. After many months of marital turmoil and a divorce filing in December 2013, Khloe was ready to move on from her former life with Lamar and into some brand new digs.
Before Khloe came a-knocking with some serious cash, Bieber purchased the sprawling home in 2012. He quietly (and secretly) put it on the market after some highly publicized and heated run-ins with his neighbors, including an egging incident that resulted in a police raid and a serious felony vandalism investigation.
Bieber has given up on the sleepy community of Calabasas and moved into a rented mansion in Atlanta, but the Kardashians are doubling down. Mom Kris Jenner lives in nearby Hidden Hills with sisters Kendall and Kylie, and older sister Kourtney recently upgraded her Calabasas living situation by buying retired NFL star Keyshawn Johnson’s home, which is just a couple doors down from the home Khloe just bought from the Biebs.

The exterior of the "Jenner House" on Keeping Up With The Kardashians
7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 7,043 square feet
Not quite real!
One of the many secrets of the reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ has just emerged! According to TMZ, the exterior of the home that appears multiple times in each episode as the “Jenner House” has just hit the market for $6.25 M. As a result, the millions of viewers who watch the Kardashians every Sunday are just now realizing that the home they thought belonged to the famous family is just a façade for reality TV. While it’s made to appear as the home that Kris,
Bruce, Kendall, Kylie, Kim, Kanye and North all live in in the affluent community of Calabasas, CA, the home is a fake that’s actually located in Studio City.
The Kardashian/Jenner’s actual home is 20 miles away in Hidden Hills, CA in a 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 8,860 square foot home they purchased on March 9, 2010 for $4,000,000 and a fake home is used for security and privacy reasons – mainly to keep the throngs of Kardashian–obsessed fans from crawling around outside the home trying to catch a peek of the famous family.
Newly listed, this home in Studio City, CA has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 7,049 square feet and a sprawling backyard with in-ground pool. The interior photos are a stark difference from the black, white and glam décor that Kris Jenner favors for her massive family compound.
This sale will be one to watch, as the new owners will have the rights to pull their home’s image from the show. In that case, the Kardashians will need to find a new ‘real estate reality.’

Eva doesn’t live in this particular home – she owns a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home nearby that she purchased in April 2008 for $3.2M. Eva’s hunky boyfriend Ryan Gosling was spotted outside this particular home, squashing rumors that the duo were on the rocks.

Beverly Hills, CA
A long, beloved run as Rachel on Friends and a breakout star in feature films
5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 6,249 square feet, Hal Levitt-designed exteriors, pool
For $9.9 million, you can own the Beverly Hills home that Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux shacked up in for a year and a half while they renovated their $21 million-dollar home in nearby Bel Air.
Aniston and then-boyfriend Justin Theroux moved into the super-swanky Asian Zen rental in May 2012, while they waited out the extensive (and costly) renovations on the Bel Air home Jen bought in January 2012.
When Jen and Justin signed the lease, the home was for-sale for $11,500,000, and Aniston scooped up the temporary digs as a $40,000 a month rental. Jen and Justin recently moved into their freshly-completed home and now this Asian contemporary home is back on the market with a lower $9.9 million price tag.
The home has 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and clocks in at about 6,500 square-feet. Hal Levitt-designed exteriors have been masterfully updated as part of a meticulous renovation – perfect for a modern architecture buff like Aniston.
The home not only looks sleek and modern, it’s actually built and wired with the latest RTI Smart Home technology and comes complete with a state-of-the-art home theater/entertainment system. The dramatic entryway is honed basalt and suspended above cascading water features, and leads to an impressive hand-carved front door.

Interiors include a stone-lined temperature controlled wine room, a bar with custom cabinetry, walnut shelving and LED glass lighting installation.

Actress best known for her role as Detective Juliet "Jules" O'Hara in the TV show Psych
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,419 square feet
Actress Maggie Lawson is downsizing in Los Angeles!
After listing her eco-friendly home for $2.2 million in January 2014, there’s now a ‘sale pending’ sign hanging out front of the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home, which Maggie and longtime boyfriend James Roday have lived in since 2011. Lawson and Roday decided to go decidedly smaller on their next home, and just closed on a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,419 square foot home for $1.1 million.
Lawson decided to downsize her home life, but her career is in full bloom. She is best known for her role as Detective Juliet “Jules” O’Hara in the TV show Psych, and in 2014, she’ll be the lead in a show called “Save The Date,” about a newly single woman who drunkly leaves a deposit on a wedding venue and is tasked with finding the right man in time.
Offscreen, Dawson is pretty sure she’s found the right house at the right time. Located in the same neighborhood as her former home, her smaller bungalow-style abode is a refurbished 1888 home that was relocated from Normandie in Los Feliz to Bronson Canyon as part of a project sponsored in the late 1920′s and early 1930′s by the Los Angeles Times and the Home Planning Bureau of LA. It was moved to be showcased as a shining example of what this restoration movement could do.
Today, one might use words “repurposed” or “green” to describe the home, which light, bright and thoroughly modern. Inside, clean lines lead you from one room to another, and outside, there are plenty of distinct areas to entertain in and enjoy the California sunshine.
Holly Purcell of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties represented the sellers and Margaret Arana of Nourmand & Associates was Lawson’s agent.

Mega-successful dermatologist with an eponymous line of skincare
2.3 acres, 14,000 square feet, five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, beachfront, pool
Located in the uber-exclusive and private John’s Island gated community, the wealthy dermatologist is saying goodbye to an incredible 14,000 square foot home with 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 partial bathrooms on 2.3 acres of oceanfront land.
Outside, the home has covered loggias for escaping the Florida sun, as well as a lounge pool and plenty of outdoor space for entertaining and enjoying the incredible weather. Sprawling lawns surround the property, and just beyond the green lawns lies 93 feet of beachfront sand and surf, which can be accessed via a private dune walkway.
First reported by the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Perricone paid $10 million for the home in 2009, which had been built on spec in 2007. He bought the home fully furnished in a navy and white pallet, and he is now offering the home fully furnished as well, since he doesn’t “want to be bothered with moving furniture.” Anyone who has ever moved houses can understand the feeling!
The WSJ also reported that “Dr. Perricone said he is selling because his business has kept him busier than expected, leaving him little time to visit the house.”

New York, NY
Newscorp chairman and legendary businessman
6,850 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bedrooms
As first reported by the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal, he is purchasing the top four floors of the chic One Madison building – the very same NYC condo building where Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen just bought a place for $14 million.
According to WSJ’s report, Murdoch bought floors 57 to 60, which total 10,160 square feet, from the developer, Related Companies. His purchase includes two units: a 6,850-square-foot triplex penthouse that had been on the market for $50 million (and toured by multiple A-list celebs, millionaires and billionaires), and a three-bedroom apartment on the floor below that had been listed for $16.5 million. Murdoch’s two One Madison apartments are unconnected, but could easily be combined, according to a representative from the developer.
The penthouse has five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a 586 square foot outdoor wraparound terrace. It also has an internal elevator. Rupert will be able to put his own personal touches on the place before he moves in – he bought it in ‘raw condition’ and will install his own finishes and decor.
Prior to this incredible purchase, Murdoch resided in a Fifth Avenue penthouse that he paid $44 million for in 2005. He and his wife of 13 years, Wendi Deng, recently divorced and she is keeping that residence as a part of the divorce settlement.
Right as the news of his divorce was coming to light, Murdoch purchased a 13-acre winery estate in Bel Air, CA for $28.8 million.

Nurturing comedy careers at The Comedy Store, and giving birth to Pauly Shore
5,448-square-foot European Villa with six-bedrooms, five-bathrooms and a pool; Former home of 1940s singer/movie star Dorothy Lamour
Listed by the downsizing octogenarian for $5.8 million in August 2013, the deal just closed for an even $5 million on February 7, 2014.
Mitzi Shore is known by many in the funny business as the maker and breaker of comedy careers. From the 1970s to the 1990s, Mitzi nurtured the budding starts of many well-known comedians and late night talk show hosts, including David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Chelsea Handler, Richard Pryor, and Robin Williams.
Reports suggest that Shore sold the home because she’s in declining health and looking to cut back on her holdings. Mitzi has already handed off the day-to-day management of her famous comedy club to her family — which has resulted in a pretty scandalous and un-funny lawsuit between her two sons.
When Mitzi listed the home last summer, it was the first time that the legendary Old Hollywood estate has been on the market since she bought it 40 years ago. Prior to Shore’s long-term residency in the estate, the villa in the Hollywood Hills was once home to 1940′s-era singer/movie star Dorothy Lamour.
Built in 1936, this ivy-covered European Villa includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and sits on one of the largest flat lots in the area — a rare and desirable asset for homes located in the Hollywood Hills. While loaded with character and charm on the outside, the home will need a lot of TLC on the inside. According to the listing description, this home needs “to be fully restored/rebuilt.”
Kurt Rappaport of the Westside Estate Agency represented both the buyer and the seller on this deal.
