      Celebrity Switcheroo!

      Vince Vaughn has just been identified as the buyer of Kate Bosworth’s open and airy Los Angeles hideaway. First revealed by the Real Estalker, property records show that Vaughn is indeed the buyer of Bosworth’s hills spread.

      Vince and his wife splashed out $2,375,000 for the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, 2,890 Nichols Canyon home, which is a  little less than what Kate was hoping to get for it (original asking price was $2,499,000), but the blonde beauty has by no means sold at a loss to Vince. The ‘Blue Crush’ actress paid $2,100,000 when she purchased the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom place in 2005.

      Vaughn’s new private pad is set behind a discreet gate that leads you down a long drive to this contemporary home on over half an acre.

      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.

      Why would Vaughn buy from Bosworth, when he just snapped up two other properties in the last year? To add to his collection, of course! He currently owns a 12,000 square-foot penthouse in the historic Palmolive Building and another smaller apartment in the River North neighborhood of his hometown of Chicago, as well as two Los Angeles-area properties. The first is a $3,925,000 property in La Canada Flintridge, and the second is a Manhattan Beach mansion he bought for $6,447,000 from former USC football coach, Lane Kiffin.

        ‘American Pie’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ actor Jason Biggs has just listed his Mid-Century Modern home in the Hollywood Hills for $2,995,000.

        In a prime Sunset Strip location, the swank home has a semi-private drive and is walled and gated for the utmost privacy. The hillside locale highlights city-to-ocean views within this 2,756 square foot home, which Biggs purchased from Wonder Years actor Fred Savage in 2007 for $2,249,000.

        The main level provides generous open-concept living room, vaulted ceilings and abundant light with a great room, dining room and kitchen areas all opening up to both the view and the pool/terrace.

        The first floor is completed by a spacious office or den, a massive en-suite guest room and courtyard-access, a secured garage and a large dog run.

        Elsewhere inside, Biggs’ Master suite has the same explosive views, a luxe en-suite bath, and a sensational media/screening room with its own bath and state-of-the-art entertainment system.

        The reason for the move? Perhaps Jason and his wife, Jenny Mollen, are looking for a place that’s a bit more family-friendly. Married since 2008, the duo welcomed their first child, a boy named Sid, in February 2014.

            In a housing market that’s going up, up, up, actor Bruce Willis had a hard time selling his Beverly Hills mansion. Originally listed for $22 million in May 2013, Willis was forced to chop $2 million off the asking price of his sprawling, gated Beverly Hills hacienda in August 2013. With a $19,995,000 price tag, the gorgeous home continued to languish on the market.

            Until now.

            Property records show that Willis finally found a buyer at a much lower price. He sold the spread for $16.5 million on August 15, 2014.

            After so many years on the market, Willis must be thrilled that the deal is done, and he and wife Emma Hemming can fully enjoy East Coast life in their chic condo in New York City.

            Despite the lower sale price, Willis still made a profit over the $9 million he paid for the estate way back in June 2004, when he bought the pad from movie industry titan Alan Ladd Jr.

            The 1928 Spanish-style residence sits on about an acre acre of flat land in a prime section of lower Beverly Hillsand has 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms spread out over 10,379 square feet of interior space that also includes a state-of-the-art screening room, his & hers bathrooms and two staff rooms. Outside, a large pool, tennis courts and the surrounding areas are an entertainer’s paradise.

            Branden Williams of Hilton & Hyland represented both Willis and the buyer in the deal.

              ‘The 70′s Show’ actor Topher Grace has just put his Hollywood Hills hideaway on the market for $1,895,000.

              Topher bought the place in January 2006 for $1,275,000 from actor Jesse Metcalf.

              Tiny by Hollywood standards, the home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1,799 square feet.

              Described by his real estate agent as a “picturesque pied de terre,” the home sits on a private cul-de-sac off of Sunset Plaza. What it lacks in square footage and space, it makes up for in location, location, location!

              The single-level home has a great open floor plan, with hardwood floors and soft, natural night throughout.

              The gourmet kitchen has custom cabinetry, and the master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, plus a sumptuous bath.

              Tophers’s tiny pad has a seamless indoor/outdoor flow to a sparkling pool and  several lush outdoor spaces for lounging and entertaining.

              Topher joins his other ‘That 70′s Show’ cast mates, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, on the real estate merry-go-round. Ashton just sold his bachelor pad for $9.92 million, and Mila is asking nearly $4 million for her single gal spread.

                On-again, off-again, on-again couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have just added fuel to the fire of rumors about their rocky marriage by listing their shared Bedford, NY mansion for $8,100,000.

                Most celebrity real estate watchers know that when the ‘for-sale’ sign goes up in the front yard, the divorce lawyers are the next people who come knocking. With these two, who publicly split and then even more publicly reconciled, it can signal that it’s finally over for good between them, or that they’re ready for a fresh start in a brand new home.

                Whichever way they’re heading, they’re leaving behind the gorgeous mansion they purchased together in October 2010 for $5,075,000.

                Located down a long gated drive, Catherine and Michael’s for-sale home is a 5.7 acre brick colonial-style estate. Surrounded on three sides by  a  horse farm, the estate is quiet, private and serene.

                Generously proportioned, light-filled rooms capture the architectural details and ambiance of the 1930′s. In the thick of their separation in 2013, the home was completely renovated, wherein they added a glorious master closet suite, gym and sauna, finely crafted moldings, hardwood floors, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen and luxurious decor.

                The property also now features a brand new one-bedroom guest house with bath, kitchen and living room.

                The 5.7 acre grounds also feature sprawling lawns and a sparkling swimming pool.

                In addition to this property, Douglas and Zeta-Jones own homes on Central Park in New York City, in Swansea, UK, and in Bermuda, where they resided full-time for many years.

                Craig Siano of Siano & Co is their real estate agent.

                  Ashton Kutcher just sold his sleek Hollywood Hills bachelor pad for $9,925,000!

                  The ‘Two and a Half Men” actor bought the sleek hills pad two years ago, paying $8.455 million. In May 2014, it was rumored that he was quietly shopping it for $12,000,000.

                  In 2012, he rented the pad for a rumored $50,000 a month for a couple months before officially making it his. At the time that he bought, he was recently separated from now-ex-wife Demi Moore and needed a new place to call home. Shortly after moving into his bachelor pad, Kutcher stepped out with former ‘That 70′s Show” co-star Mila Kunis. Two years later, the duo are engaged and expecting their first child – a girl!

                  With all those life changes, Kutcher’s spectacular bachelor pad doesn’t exactly scream “family home.” It was rumored that Mila wanted to bring up baby in a more family-friendly home, and those rumors were confirmed when the duo snapped up a very family-friendly place in Beverly Hills for about $10,000,000.

                  With a new family home and a baby due any minute, it was time for Kutcher to part with his former party pad. In the same vein,  Mila just listed her single girl spread nearby, asking $3,995,000.

                  With their bachelor and bachelorette pad sell-offs in full swing, Kutcher’s glassy house had to go. The three-story home overlooks Lake Hollywood with fully retractable walls of glass. The floating dining room area opens to stunning views. The home also has a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, private screening room, bar area and gym/massage room. The striking master suite boasts ample use of glass and wood, magnificent views and a spa-like master bath. A variety of outdoor spaces include enclosed gardens, outdoor rooms, infinity pool, cantilevered decks and an open sky terrace.

                  Fun Fact: Justin Bieber, who recently sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian, was very, very interested in purchasing the home in 2011, but Ashton swooped in and bought it out from under him. The buyer remains unknown, but with Bieber’s current issues with his neighbors, this could have been a good buy for the young bad boy.
