    A new home for Holmes!

    Katie Holmes has left her life in New York City and moved back to California.

    According to a report by TMZ and property records, Katie dropped $3,795,000 on a 6 bedroom, 6.5 bath, 6,200 square foot mansion in the celebrity-infested LA suburb of Calabasas.

    TMZ says that Katie’s high-tailing it back to California to be nearer to Hollywood, so she can get her career back on track. Ex-husband Tom Cruise must be thrilled – he’s got a massive estate in Beverly Hills, and this moves brings daughter Suri closer.

    Katie’s next phase in live will start inside a “Grand European Manor with contemporary flair,” situated on an expansive lot.

    Located atop a cul-de-sac and bordering pristine conservancy land, Holmes’ new home is an expansive main residence with a separate guest casita. Extensively customized with the finest finishes, the home’s features include a gourmet center island kitchen with professional appliances, dark distressed wood floors, and use of rare stones and marble accents.

    The open floor plan includes several entertaining courtyards, including one adjacent to the dramatic formal living and dining rooms. A grand foyer is accentuated by an open library/loft and Katie’s brand new master retreat has a sitting area and a large sun deck.

    Outside, resort-like grounds feature an oversized pool with sunken fire pit lounge area, several seating enclaves, a covered loggia, large grassy area, kitchenette, and sports court. Perfect for Suri as she grows!

      Beyonce

      New York, NY

      Most Known For

      International superstar singer, married to Jay-Z; Former member of Destiny's Child

      Home Stats

      5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 4,054 square feet, views, doorman, private terrace

      Price

      $21,500,000

      Adding fuel to the fire of those divorce rumors, the New York Post is reporting that Beyonce was spotted touring a $21.5 million-dollar condo in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

      A new home for her, Jay-Z and baby Blue Ivy? Not likely, since this 4,054 square-foot pad is nearly half the size of the luxurious TriBeCa condo the Carter family currently calls home.

      According to the Post’s source, “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Additional sources also said that the fact that Jay-Z wasn’t there was a big red flag, since he “has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals.” 

      While many people say it’s just a matter of when, not if, they will split, Beyonce may be getting her ducks in a row and finding a new home.

      If it’s true and they’re no longer “Crazy in Love,” this New York City condo is definitely fit for “Queen B.”

      The magnificent Penthouse offers unequalled panoramic city and river vistas on one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. Every inch of this immaculate duplex reflects superior craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail and ultra-refined finishes at every turn, with a backdrop of stretching views of the Empire State Building, Highline, Hudson River and more from floor-to-ceiling windows.

      The custom-designed living space is complemented by a private 642 square foot, north-facing terrace that showcases stretching city sights. Completely renovated to perfection, this large, light-bathed 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath duplex penthouse was made for entertaining. With huge formal areas and the massive outdoor terrace accessible from both the grand living room and library, there is a  seamless flow for intimate barbecues and large-scale parties.

      A top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen faces south and west and is equipped with a breakfast area, white Cararra marble, Arclinea Italian cabinetry, Boffi fixtures, premium appliances including a Viking range with a vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

      Other highlights of this enviable residence are 9’2″ ceiling heights, charcoal granite and teak floors, teak wall panels and Venetian plaster walls, custom electronic shades throughout, stone tiles in the spa-like baths, a custom-designed staircase with an intricate bronze railing, and spacious laundry room with a full-size Miele washer and dryer, teak and stainless steel cabinetry.

      The sprawling master bedroom retreat is the piece de resistance with its spectacular views, massive teak closet providing loads of luxury storage, and opulent master bath with ribbed marble walls and Boffi fixtures.

      Perfect for Beyonce, the luxurious building has a 24-hour doorman and sits in a prized location, just minutes from West Chelsea’s best spots. 

      Will she or won’t she? Only time will tell.

        Mila Kunis is patiently waiting the arrival of her daughter with Ashton Kutcher, and while they wait for baby, she’s putting one part of her former life behind her. She just listed her bachelorette pad in the Hollywood Hills for $3,995,000.

        Mila had been cohabiting with Ashton in his glassy mansion for months, and just after they found out they were expecting, they bought a gorgeous Beverly Hills estate to bring up baby in.

        Mila’s single-girl spread was purchased by Mila on September 15, 2008 for $2,885,000. The home is an elegant Mediterranean compound with unparalleled views of Los Angeles.

        Seated on a private cul de sac, Mila’s beautiful compound has been completely redone from top to bottom, with no expense overlooked. With high ceilings, open floor plan and breathtaking panoramic views from every room, the 4,900 square foot, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home is ideal for entertaining.

        Custom and state-of-the-art, the house includes a Crestron security system, a high-end eight-seat home movie theater, spectacular sound system, and integrated entertainment enclave.

        The chef’s kitchen features subzero appliances and flows to an indoor/outdoor living room with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open to a cabana and seating area and expansive woodview-deck and pool/hot tub.

        Aside from her Beverly Hills estate with Kutcher, Kunis owns a condo in West Hollywood.

          $1,943,575

          The dancing and acting dynamo that is Julianne Hough has just bought herself a new place to kick up her feet.

          According to property records and The Real Estalker, Ms. Hough spent $1,943,575 for a house high in the Hollywood Hills that’s very reminiscent of her Nashville and country roots

          With charming rustic chic ambience, Julianne’s new abode has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 2,101 square feet of living space. Just like Julianne, the house is a knockout, and the views will take your breath away.

          Delivering exactly what a house high in the hills should have, the place has magnificent wrap-around views of city lights, far-reaching mountains and the famous Hollywood sign.

          Inside, the light and bright home has a large chef’s kitchen with center island and top-of-the-line appliances, a step-down living room, a great master suite with a sumptuous bath. With perfect indoor/outdoor flow, the home has a lanai that flows out to a massive lawn and pool area.

          Julianne famously dated Ryan Seacrest for 2+ years, and during their time together, she bunked up with him in the insane $37M compound he bought from Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. While it’s no Seacrest compound, Hough’s new bachelorette pad is a sweet spot for this rising star.

            Live in Christina Augilera’s Former Bachelorette Pad

            Golden pipes, a messy personal life and a comeback on The Voice

            Home Stats

            6,500+ square feet, 4 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms

            Price

            $29,000 a month

            Back in August 2011, Christina Augilera was finally able to sell her former bachelorette pad to an unknown buyer for an interesting sum of $4,653,815. Now, that same buyer has decided to rent out the home for $29,000 a month.

            The home has spectacular architectural with stunning jetliner views from downtown to the ocean. This completely renovated home is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. Just minutes to Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills, the  6,500+ square foot home offer views from every room. Walls of glass open to large pool and 12 person spa with an outdoor fireplace. Ms. A’s former home also has a professional screening room and recording studio. The lavish master suite boasts 2 fireplaces and immense double closet over looking the entire city.

            When Aguilera was trying to sell this Devlin Drive home, she found out quickly that it wasn’t the easiest piece of property to move. It went through rounds and rounds of price cuts until Ms. Aguilera found herself selling the 4 bedroom, 7 bathroom home off for almost $350,000 less than the $5,000,000 she paid for it in 2003.

            The Devlin Drive home is perched high in the hills, and is the pad Christina occupied prior to her ill-fated marriage to music executive Jordan Bratman. As husband and wife, Christina and Jordan moved on to purchase a love nest and family home that was none other than the former home of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. Any one with a penchant for reality TV (and a killer memory) will recognize the home as the one where the Prince of Darkness and his brood filmed the popular MTV show “The Osbournes.” Since the Aguilera/Bratman divorce in 2011, that home has been on the market for $13,500,000 and still hasn’t found a buyer who wants a high-priced home with that much Tinseltown street cred.
