    Justin Bieber has settled into two swank Beverly Hills condos after selling his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and temporarily relocating to a rental in Atlanta.

    Now back on the West Coast and without a massive mansion to call home, 20-year-old Bieber has taken up residence in two condos in a brand new Beverly Hills condo building. Bieber is currently renting both the penthouse unit and a smaller condo directly underneath it, although the two units do not connect. According to TMZ, he needed the second unit for not only for more space for himself, but also his entourage.

    The Canadian crooner, who has been on a bit of an attempted (but failed) “image reboot” as of late, hasn’t won over any of his new neighbors, who have already complained of excessive noise, late-night partying and marijuana smells that seep into the shared hallways.

    After less than a month, Justin’s new neighbors are fed up. TMZ is also reporting that the condo has hired private security from the hours of 6pm and 8am, all to keep Bieber and his entourage in check and keep the peace around the building. Since Bieber’s just renting, the HOA is sending the bill for the security guards directly to the condo’s owners. Ouch.

    Bieber’s paying $16,000 a month for the penthouse unit and $11,000 a month for the 4th floor unit, for a grand total of $27,000 a month.

    Brand new and never lived in, the penthouse unit has a private rooftop deck and jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and top-of-the-line details throughout. The smaller unit has an additional 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

    If he keeps up his bad boy ways, no doubt Bieber will be on the move again soon.

      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.

      Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland held the listing.

          ’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.

              Creedence Clearwater Revival rocker John Fogerty just sold his massive Beverly Hills estate for $18.6 million!

              The home popped up as an off-market ‘pocket listing’ with a $23 million price tag in July 2013.

              Nearly 9 months later, a buyer swooped in and made an offer significantly under asking, and the deal closed on March 21, 2014. While Fogerty didn’t exactly sell it for a song, it was $4.4 less than what he’d hope to sell it for.

              Purchased by the “Proud Mary” rocker on November 20, 2002 for $2,900,000, the home at 2553 Summitridge Dr. had 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 13,476 square feet at the time he bought it. 10 years later, the home has undergone some extensive renovations that added an additional 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2,500 square feet to the residence.

              Now, the home sits on 3 meticulously landscaped acres and features a gated entrance and circular motor court with fountain leading to the garage motor court. Inside,  16,000 square feet of living space includes 9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 2-story foyer with fireplace, double-barrel vaulted main hallway, formal living room with fireplace, formal dining room with wine room, gourmet kitchen, 2-story family room with fireplace, wood paneled library with fireplace, home theater, 2nd floor lounge with wet bar, 4+ car garage and more.

              Outside, the property has an incredible entertainer’s yard with a covered loggia with fireplace, mosaic-tiled swimming pool with spa, expansive patio, children’s playground and outdoor dining and cooking areas. There is also a separate guest house with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen.

              Fogerty has since moved on to a 7 bedroom, 13,053 square foot estate in Thousand Oaks, CA that he purchased for $9 million in May 2013.

                $9,900,000

                For $9.9 million, you can own the Beverly Hills home that Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux shacked up in for a year and a half while they renovated their $21 million-dollar home in nearby Bel Air.

                Aniston and then-boyfriend Justin Theroux moved into the super-swanky Asian Zen rental in May 2012, while they waited out the extensive (and costly) renovations on the Bel Air home Jen bought in January 2012.

                When Jen and Justin signed the lease, the home was for-sale for $11,500,000, and Aniston scooped up the temporary digs as a $40,000 a month rental. Jen and Justin recently moved into their freshly-completed home and now this Asian contemporary home is back on the market with a lower $9.9 million price tag.

                The home has 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and clocks in at about 6,500 square-feet. Hal Levitt-designed exteriors have been masterfully updated as part of a meticulous renovation – perfect for a modern architecture buff like Aniston.

                The home not only looks sleek and modern, it’s actually built and wired with the latest RTI Smart Home technology and comes complete with a state-of-the-art home theater/entertainment system.  The dramatic entryway is honed basalt and suspended above cascading water features, and leads to an impressive hand-carved front door. Interiors and exteriors offer the best of California living, including ocean and city views, an entertainer-friendly layout with Lynx outdoor cooking area, a stunning zero-edge pool and spa.

                Interiors include a stone-lined temperature controlled wine room, a bar with custom cabinetry, walnut shelving and LED glass lighting installation. A Bulthaup kitchen features a stunning “Monobloc” stainless steel island, floating appliance cubes, warm bronze and striped walnut cabinetry, and appliances by Miele and Leibherr. The master suite comes complete with custom walnut closets, his-and-hers baths featuring book-matched Calcutta Borghini marble, Ann Sacks tiles, heated flooring, steam shower, and private outdoor shower.

                Wes Earley of John Aaroe Group represents the listing.

                  Retired San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds has just slashed the price of his Beverly Hills mansion by $1.5 million.

                  When Bonds listed the incredible estate for $25 million dollars 11 months ago, he had his eye on that $25 million list price for two reasons. First – and most importantly – he’d make an insane profit, considering he spent $8.7 million for the house in 2002. Secondly, Bonds gave the Mediterranean stunner a $25M price tag as an homage to his former jersey number – 25, which he considers to be his lucky number.

                  Lucky or not to him, it wasn’t the number buyers were willing to pay for the 1.85 acre, seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom manse.

                  Now listed for a lower, but equally impressive $23.5 million, Bond’s estate seeks a buyer who wants to live in a faux Tuscan villa in the heart of Los Angeles. Fully renovated, attention to detail is apparent throughout, from the 30-ft soaring ceilings in the grand entry foyer, to the gorgeous hand-painted Trompe L’oeil murals and the usage of Venetian plaster throughout. The home boasts over 17,000 square feet of living space and unparalleled California living.

                  Outside, the grounds feature over 2,000 square feet of spacious loggias, a pool and cabana, and 2-story guest house.

                    Report: Charlie Sheen Selling The Home He Bought For Estranged Ex-Wife Brooke Mueller

                    Amid a nasty (and we mean NASTY) custody battle, TMZ is reporting that Charlie Sheen is trying to quickly sell the Beverly Hills mansion he bought as a primary residence for his ex-wife Brooke Mueller and their twin boys, Bob and Max.

                    Located just around the corner from his mansion in the gated, upscale neighborhood of Mulholland Estates, Brooke’s 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 6,625 square foot home was purchased by Sheen on October 23, 2012 from billionaire Tom Gores for $4,800,000. According to TMZ’s report, Sheen wants to sell the home quickly and for exactly what he paid for it, because terms of his divorce from Mueller specify that any profit made on the residence must be split evenly. So if he sells for zero profit, he owes her nothing.

                    Isn’t love grand?

                    The home is a total stunner, especially at that $4.8M price point – it’s Spanish-style villa on expansive, private grounds. The home centers around a formal living room that then opens to a library/den, dining room, theater, gourmet kitchen and family room. Brooke’s master suite has a separate sitting room, dual fireplaces and multiple walk-in closets. Outside, the spacious backyard has a large pool/spa and built-in bbq.

                    When everything was amicable between Charlie and Brooke, this home was the perfect spot for her and the boys to live – because Dad was just around the corner. Charlie actually owns two more mansions in Mulholland Estates – a 6 bed, 9 bath home he paid $6,999,999 for on March 31, 2011 and a 5 bed, 7 bath estate he picked up on April 28, 2006 for $7,200,000.

                    While Charlie’s not with his real estate agent, it’s likely he’s with his lawyer. He and Brooke’s heated custody battle rages on.

                    Her Madgesty has sold her massive castle in Beverly Hills!

                    Madonna, the Queen of Pop, who publicly listed her Beverly  Hills estate for $22.5 million in January 2013, has snagged a mystery buyer who paid a reported $20 million.

                    Before it came (and lingered on the market), Madonna’s posh pad had long been rumored to be a “pocket listing”–not officially on the MLS, but still for sale–for $28 million, but since the price wasn’t in ‘Vogue’ with buyers, Madonna was forced to try the public market at a lower price.

                    After about 10 months on the market, Madonna has finally sold for $20 million – a nice profit of $8 million dollars more than the $12 million she paid in June 2003, when she bought the home from actress Sela Ward. ‘Take a Bow,’ Madonna – nice work!

                    The whole time the home was on the market, only a single image showing the home’s ‘Borderline’ was available, so we never got to peep the interiors. We do know Madonna’s just-sold property starts with a 500-foot, gated, tree-lined drive that leads to an acre and a quarter of lushly landscaped grounds, offering total privacy for residents to ‘express themselves.’

                    The recently remodeled house has all the finest details and amenities: nine bedrooms, two living/reception rooms, a two-story dining room, junior dining room, large kitchen with breakfast room/den, and a full size screening room and theater. As if that weren’t enough space to ‘Cherish,’ the property also has two offices, assistants offices, a gym, staff rooms, two guest houses, a north/south tennis court, and a resort-size pool. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the house meticulously. It’s clear, by taking one look at her former home, that Madonna is a ‘Material Girl.’

                    Madonna is no property ‘Virgin,’ as she also has homes in New York and London.
