    Home Stats

    5,500 square feet, 4 bedrooms (plus maids quarters), 5.5 bathrooms, swimming pool

    Price

    $18,000,000

    According to reports, Courteney Cox and her ex-husband, David Arquette, have finally found a buyer for their under-the-radar Beverly Hills architectural estate

    Listed for $19.5M, the Real Estalker is reporting that the Mid-Century style home is in escrow for about $18 million bucks, and the rumored buyer is successful producer, songwriter and Grammy-winner, Dr. Luke. He’s also the same celebrity real estate aficionado that snapped up Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne‘s former Malibu beach house for $7.925M in 2012. 

    Timing is right for Courteney and David to make a deal on the estate they own together. Although they still amicably co-parent their 10-year-old daughter Coco together, the duo have been officially divorced since May 2013. Although the two remain “Friends,” Courteney just announced her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, and David has since moved on to girlfriend Christina Mclarty, with whom he has a young son named Charlie West

    After they separated, the estate spent two years unofficially on the market as a “pocket listing.” With no takers, the A. Quincy Jones-designed Beverly Hills estate hit the MLS in September 2013 for $19,500,000.

    The Wallace Ridge estate is nestled in the uber-private and high-priced gated Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills. In June 2004, in their happily married days, Cox and Arquette purchased the trophy property for $5,450,000. They had the single-story home completely restored by renowned architect Cory Buckner in 2006.

    The in-escrow estate is an approximately 5,500 square foot home on one level, with 4 bedrooms (plus maids rooms), 5.5 bathrooms, detached office and uniquely gorgeous circular swimming pool.

      Producer with such smash hits as Transformers, Pearl Harbor, Armageddon and more

      4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 7,919 square feet, pool

      Price

      $11,450,000

      Mega-producer Michael Bay just sold his blockbuster Los Angeles home for $11.45 million.

      The 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom home has nearly 8,000 square feet of living space, and is primely located in the celebrity enclave between Bel Air and the Holmby Hills in Los Angeles.

      Bay sold this estate because he recently completed construction on a brand new home that has been in the works since he purchased it in October 2009 for $10.9 million. To much outrage, he tore down an architecturally significant home to build an even bigger and more contemporary estate.

      The new home is designed by Oppenheim Architecture + Design, and according to the architects’ description of the project, Bay’s new mansion is nestled into a hillside, spans 30,000 square feet and features a large theater, movie prop museum, parking, spa and two master bedroom modules hovering above the main living quarters.

      Quite the project!

      While Bay transitioned into his new home, he was also working on selling his former home, which he purchased in 1999 for $5.16 million and originally listed in December 2013 for $13.5 million.

      The striking contemporary estate is off a long gated drive in prime Bel Air on a promontory w/ unobstructed views of the entire Los Angeles basin. Designed by the late architect Jack Warner, this extremely private home features clean, crisp lines, grand scale museum-like spaces, soaring ceilings, ideal indoor/outdoor flow and dramatic views from every room. A spacious central living room has a huge fireplace, a large formal dining room, and separate library/den that opens to a lush, private garden, pool & spa.

      Other amenities include a state-of-the-art theatre (naturally), wine cellar, and gorgeous wood & stone floors.

        3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2,868 square feet, pool, once owned by Ellen Degeneres

        Price

        $3,379,000

        ‘The Fast and the Furious’ actress Jordana Brewster is selling her stunning Hollywood home for $3,795,000.

        Property records show that the Brazilian-American actress paid $3,375,000 for the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2,868 square foot architectural stunner in March 2011.

        Long before Brewster called the place home, Ellen DeGeneres walked the halls of this house after she purchased it on June 11, 1999 for $1,700,000. In typical Ellen Degeneres fashion, she quickly grew tired of the home and and sold it on February 8, 2002 for $1,930,000. Ellen has since moved up in the real estate world and currently resides in a home called “the best home in Los Angeles” that she paid nearly $40 million for.

        Brewster’s for-sale home is a private and sophisticated architectural retreat in a prime Sunset Strip location. Situated all on one level, the wonderful open floor plan features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a den, and gorgeous screening room. Walls of glass open onto lush terraced gardens, and nearby, you’ll find a pool, spa, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area.

        Perfect for its multiple celebrity owners, this home is gated for maximum privacy.
