    ‘90210’ actor Jason Priestley has just sold his house in the 91602 (Toluca Lake, that is) for a $140,000 loss.

    The 90’s star who played Brandon Walsh in the cult TV hit ‘Beverly Hills 90210,’ paid $2,140,000 for this 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom,  3,266 square foot estate in May 2007, just two months before he and his wife Naomi welcome their first child.

    Now, just as he is about to release his memoir, property records show that the actor has sold off the home for $2 million, losing $140,000 on the deal. He first listed the property for $2.1 million in 2011 before taking it off the market and relisting it for $2,099,000 in February 2014.

    Priestley’s just-sold home in the heart of Toluca Lake has a spacious foyer with a dramatic staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The living room features a stone fireplace and French doors, and nearby, an oversized family room features built-ins, and opens to the gorgeous formal dining room and the covered patio. The gourmet kitchen has an island, lots of cabinet space, a walk-in pantry, and breakfast area.

    The master bedroom oasis has a fireplace, cathedral ceilings and walk-in closet. The private master bath has a stand-alone tub and glass steam shower. The second floor also features two bedrooms with en suite baths, and an office area with custom cabinets.

    The backyard is perfect for entertaining with covered patio, landscaped gardens and gorgeous pool and spa.

    Craig Strong of the John Aaroe Group represented both Priestley and the buyer in this deal.

      Just weeks after welcoming their first child, a daughter named Hazel, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have bought a new nest in Los Angeles.

      According to property records, the married actor duo closed on the home on April 23rd and paid $2,750,000 for a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,483 square foot remodeled, walled compound on a double lot.

      In true Southern California style, this house is all about windows and the stunning outdoor areas. A massive pool and spa is surrounded by stone patios, a covered lanai, flat lawn and garden.

      From the inside looking out, Emily and John’s new home has stunning canyon and city views. Other indoor amenities include a large cook’s kitchen with center island and breakfast bar that connects to the open-flow dining and living room areas.

      This property is John and Emily’s third home. They also own a weekend home in Ojai, CA that they bought in June 2012 for $2.15 million. Nearby in Los Angeles, they have a home in West Hollywood that they bought in 2009 for $1.857 million. That house is in the heart of Hollywood and Jimmy Kimmel lives right across the street!

      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.

        Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is finalizing the sale of his longtime Pacific Palisades estate, which was listed for $9,995,000. Sources close to the deal say the buyer is paying close to asking for the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 6,753 square foot estate that Gooding bought for $3.5 million in May 2000.

        Nestled in the heart of Pacific Palisades, Cuba’s almost-sold Contemporary English estate is set  amidst mature trees on almost an acre of lush, park-like grounds, with complete privacy and seclusion.

        Close to the Village and beach, Cuba’s estate has an open floor plan that includes a formal living room with wrap-around windows, and a dining room with wine cellar and butler’s pantry. A cook’s kitchen and family room combo has an adjacent mudroom/office. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art theatre, detached guest suite, 6+ car garage/gym and 2 laundry rooms.

        Outside, resort-like grounds include a private drive, expansive lawn, lighted hockey rink and pool/spa.

        Last year, Gooding made another real estate move, listing his starter home in Northridge, California for $729,000.

          The married actress/actor duo of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have just listed their longtime estate in Los Angeles for $5,499,000.

          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.

            ‘Guy’s guy’ actor Vince Vaughn just helped out former USC football coach Lane Kiffin by taking his high-priced Manhattan Beach mansion off his hands, paying $6,447,000 for the place.

            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.

              Zac Efron is shedding the last piece of his former life as a young Hollywood bad boy.

              After two stints in rehab, the reformed actor is selling his former Hollywood Hills party pad for $2,849,000. Following a tumultuous time period in his life, where he privately struggled with addiction, Efron is seeking more Zen in his life, and he’s starting at home. He moved out of this place after buying a ‘majestic Zen Contemporary’ property in Los Feliz in October 2013,  paying close to $4 million for the new home. The fresh start it provided him? Priceless!

              Now that Efron’s out of the house that was the backdrop to a darker period in his life, he’s selling the place.

              The home is a gorgeous gem and steeped in history. With 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, Efron’s former home embodies the ideal California lifestyle in a primo location.
              Whole walls of glass open in every room for seamless indoor/outdoor flow and beautiful natural light. Situated up a gated drive on a flat lush lot, this home features heated concrete floors, a unique infinity pool with an ozone system and an open kitchen with a Wolf range and sub-zero appliances.

              Offering coveted seclusion and style, the home is the perfect celebrity hideaway.

              Efron paid $2,350,000 for the home on December 3, 2008

                Singer, actor, songwriter and all-around Renaissance man Jesse McCartney has just dropped some of his hard-earned dough on a modern pad in the Hollywood Hills.

                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.

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!

                  Actor Ryan Reynolds has just sold his home high above the Sunset Strip for $1,405,000 – a loss of $310,000.

                  The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 7 years, Reynolds listed the place for sale, so he could close that chapter of his life and be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.

                  Not unlike a messy breakup, it took a considerable amount of time for Ryan to be fully untangled from this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.

                  It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market until July 2013, when it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2.5 years and another $100,000 price chop later, market conditions worked in Reynold’s favor and he was able to find a buyer willing to pay $1,405,000, and the deal closed on January 4, 2014.

                  The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.

                  Annie Challis of Keller Williams represented Reynolds as his listing agent.

                    Always dreamed of having your own in-house dive bar? Well, you’re in luck, because comedian Adam Carolla is now leasing out his funky and unconventional Spanish-style home in Hollywood for $13,500 a month!

                    Located at 3052 Lake Hollywood Drive, Carolla purchased the 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,757 square foot place on April 18, 2003 for $1,630,000.

                    One of the first homes in the Lake Hollywood area, Carolla’s for-lease abode was built in 1928 and later restored with traditional Spanish-style elements, including arched doorways, leaded glass windows, hand-carved wood beams, chandeliers, tile floors and large courtyards for entertaining.

                    While it may look like any other Spanish-style home in the neighborhood from the outside, inside, Carolla’s house is anything but ordinary. Downstairs, the house features a large, custom-built entertainment room, complete with a full dive bar and pool table, looking into the pool with glass-view port-holes.

                    Not stopping there, the house’s custom-built garage is enormous, with room for 10 cars and a hoist. There is also private parking on the grounds for an additional 10-12 cars.

                    Carolla and his wife Lynette own this high-priced property, but live full-time in nearby La Canada Flintridge, in a home they bought in the summer of 2013 for $2,965,000. Like anyone in LA who’s had any sort of financial success, the Carolla’s also have a Malibu home. They paid $3.6 million for that beach pad in 2007.

                    Have $13,500 a month to drop on a party pad? Rent Adam Carolla’s house by contacting listing agent Tom Otero of Rodeo Realty.
