Brazilian supermodel and star quarterback of the New England Patriots
5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 13,890 square feet, pool, moat, gated
Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen just made an stunning offseason move – they listed their incredible custom-built Los Angeles estate for $50,000,000!, as first reported by TMZ.
The genetically-gifted duo spent years waiting out the completion of this custom estate, making it’s ‘for-sale’ status a bit shocking. They unveiled the home’s beautiful interiors in the October 2013 issue of Architectural Digest and Tom said, “We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where we can enjoy being together.”
While Brady is based in New England for much of the year, Gisele’s work takes her to Los Angeles frequently, and many assumed that the two would settle in this estate when Brady retired from football and awaited his Hall of Fame appointment.
Alas, that won’t be happening.
While we can’t know for sure why they’re selling, we can assume that the sale of the estate is a money-making move by the multi-millionaire couple, who picked up the vacant lot for $11,750,000 in August 2008 and sunk millions into its construction, which was completed in 2011.
Tom and Gisele’s for-sale estate is undeniably incredible Richard Landry-designed European country estate on almost 4 acres. The French Chataeu-style home is covered in imported limestone, and every single element of the design and materials are top-notch.
Offering stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and incredible canyon views, the home has 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms spread out over 13,890 square feet, all overlooking the most incredible infinity pool and spectacular lawns, gardens, and pathways.
Despite selling this home, they won’t be without adequate shelter. In October 2013, Tom and Gisele spent $14 million on a chic NYC condo, and they’re also building a comparable estate in the Boston area.

Los Angeles, CA
Married actress/actor duo who met on the set of "I Know What You Did Last Summer"
5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 7,620 square feet, pool, gym
Purchased for $2,450,000 by the unmarried duo in October 2001, they went on and made it official when they wed on September 1, 2002. Now more than 10 years and two kids later, the duo are still rock solid – but are looking for a change up when it comes to their living situation.
This longtime estate is located on Stonehenge lane, inside the prestigious 24 hour guard-gated community of Bel Air Crest.
Gellar and Prinze’s gated estate boasts privacy, grand scale rooms, an open floor plan and exquisite grounds.
The extraordinary gourmet kitchen, featuring beautiful cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and center island, overlooks the family room and sun-filled breakfast room. Nearby, the family room is complete with a drop down screen and projector, high ceilings, fireplace, and french doors that open to the patio area, with waterfalls, pool, spa, and BBQ.
The luxurious master suite features 15-foot ceilings, a fireplace, sitting area, secluded balcony, custom dual walk-in closets and dual baths – a recipe for a happy marriage! This estate also has a unique lower level with bonus room, guest quarters, sunroom and gym.
Freddie and Sarah Michelle sent celebrity real estate watchers into a tizzy when they purchased a Los Angeles home for $6.1 million in August 2013, only to put it BACK onto the market on March 5, 2014 with a price tag of $7,900,000. Whether they’re flipping – or just flip-flopping – is still TBD, as that home is no longer listed for sale.
Perhaps the duo decided to hold onto their newer home and list this longtime estate instead.
Cynthia Ambuehl of Partners Trust Brentwood holds the listing.
Manhattan Beach, CA
Comedic Actor with hits like Swingers, Wedding Crashers and The Break Up
6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 7,308 square feet, salt water pool, gated
First reported by the Los Angeles Times, the ‘Wedding Crashers’ and ‘Old School’ actor was identified as the buyer for Kiffin’s 7,308 square foot Craftman-style home, which sold on February 28, 2014. The pad has 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a world-class backyard that features a large salt water pool and spa, fire pit, guest house, outdoor kitchen, large, gated dog run and mature landscaping.
Inside the home, Vaughn will now be able to stare at soaring ceilings, a country-style kitchen with commercial-grade appliances and a large family room.
Kiffin was fired as head coach of the USC football program in September 2013, after the season started with an abysmal 3-2 record. A brutal blowout loss at Arizona State sealed his fate. He has since moved on to a role as offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
As for Vaughn, things couldn’t be better. He and his wife recently welcomed their second child and have been on a bit of a real estate roll as of late. Less than a year ago, they spent nearly $4 million for a home in La Canada Flintridge, and in July 2013, he put his Chicago apartment up for rent for $9,500 a month.
Hollywood Hills, CA
Teen heartthrob from "High School Musical," turned troubled (but recovering) adult actor
2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,424 square feet, pool, gated
She's an Academy Award-winning actress, turned Goop lifestyle goddess, and he's the frontman of Coldplay
4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, pool, beach access
Gwyneth Paltrow and her Coldplay rocker husband Chris Martin have just spent $14 million on a seaside escape in Malibu.
The famous (and incredibly rich) duo own a massive estate in London, a place in New York City and in 2012, they spent about $10 million for an equestrian estate in Los Angeles.
After enduring rumors for the past six months that Vanity Fair magazine was expected to publish a sensational and damaging ‘takedown’ piece about the actress, she undoubtedly needs a place to escape from the madness of life in the public eye – and this seaside escape is just the place.
Inside sources say they’ve already had design firm Windsor Smith into the home to ‘do it over’ and they’ve moved in.

Purple-haired daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, current host of E! Fashion Police
1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,250 square feet, views
After listing the home for $1,349,000 in February 2014, Osbourne found a buyer willing to pay just below asking price.
It’s been a year of big changes for Osbourne, and selling this home was part of her quest for a fresh start. The E! Fashion Police co-host just split from fiance Matthew Mosshart in January 2014, after meeting at Kate Moss’ 2011 wedding and dating for two years.
Now that Kelly’s newly single and in the midst of a booming career, she’s parted ways with the 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,250 square foot home she purchased on February 16, 2005. Property records show she paid $1,195,000 for the place 9 years ago.
Designed by Robert Byrd in 1952, Kelly’s former home is beautifully detailed throughout and completed updated. With oodles of windows, the home has wonderful light and views.
The kitchen is outfitted in the best appliances on the market and the adjacent living area and separate den open onto a lush private garden with chic entertaining areas.
Reports from summer 2013 say that Kelly hasn’t lived at this home in many months. She reportedly moved into Lindsey Lohan’s former Beverly Hills rental in April 2013, paying $10,400 a month!
Jonah Wilson of Hilton Hyland was Kelly’s listing agent and the deal closed on March 11, 2014.
Bel Air, CA
He's a retired tennis ace, she is an actress best known for her role in 'Billy Madison'
4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 5,100 square feet, pool
Tennis ace Pete Sampras and his gorgeous wife, actress Bridgette Wilson, just dropped $5,996,000 for the Bel Air estate recently owned by actor Albert Brooks.
Located on over 2 acres, featuring mature trees and lots of privacy, the property is accessed via a long, gated private drive. The 5,100 square foot home is entered through the dramatic living room, which features 20 foot high wood-paneled ceilings, skylights and massive glass walls that blur the distinction between the spacious home and the lush property surrounding it. The family-friendly home has 3 bedrooms (and a maid’s), and the master suite has its own sitting room and his-and-her baths and closets.
Outside there is a tennis court (naturally!) and a large grassy area that could play host to any number of events, either children’s birthday parties or warm summer evening cocktail parties. The highlight of the spacious yard is the pristine infinity pool that looks out over a perfect Los Angeles view.
Pete and Bridgette’s new home has a long and storied show business history, having been owned by Merv Griffin before being purchased by Brooks for $3,650,000 in 1992. Albert Brooks sold the home in 2012 for $6,275,000, after listing it for nearly $7 million. The new owners didn’t hold on to it for very long, and sold it to the Sampras family at a loss.
Pete, Bridgette and their two children most recently resided in a $5.6M mansion at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. They also owned a modern Thousand Oaks, CA estate that they were asking $19.95 million for. That estate sold in November 2013 for an undisclosed price.
Hollywood Hills, CA
Pop star and actor
Modern, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3,635 square feet
Property records show that the ‘Beautiful Soul’ singer spent $1,965,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,635 square foot home in the Hills with a sleek architectural design and spacious open floor plan.
Inside the home, huge windows and skylights allow natural light to pour into the gallery-like interior and glass doors open to a private pool and garden. The stylish master suite has a massive walk-in closet and a bathroom that is a work of art unto itself. A chic open kitchen has high-end appliances and a super functional design. Other amenities include garage parking for four cars (a rarity in the Hollywood Hills!), a temperature controlled wine room, an in-home sauna, and beautiful backyard with salt water pool, spa and illuminated garden area.
McCartney’s last foray in the real estate world was a doozie. In May 2010, he sold a 2-bedroom Los Angeles home he owned for a $177,000 loss!
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.’
Moe Abourched of MSM Luxury Estates is the listing agent.
