    Jennifer Lawrence just took a cue from Jessica Simpson and purchased a gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion for $8.225 million.

    According to E! News, Lawrence bought the place from an unknown buyer who bought it from Simpson in October 2013 for $6.4 million.

    Lawrence isn’t just buying a new bachelorette pad, she’s buying a home with quite the Hollywood pedigree. Prior to Simpson and her family living here, Paul Hogan, Tom and Kathy Freston, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rick Yorn all called this gorgeous Beverly Hills property home.

    When Simpson sold, she and her family moved to the $11 million dollar Hidden Hills mansion she bought from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. She originally paid $5,275,000 for the 5-bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,500 square-foot in December 2005, right after she announced to the world that she and husband Nick Lachey were divorcing.

    Now that the stunning home belongs to Lawrence, she can settle in to the idyllic estate and weather the rigors of being a young, beautiful, A-list star.

    Built in 1991, the custom home is evocative of the stylish real estate found in the Hamptons and is located in one of the most private, guarded celebrity enclaves.

    The property is walled and gated, with a stone courtyard that leads to a koi pond. Inside, high ceilings punctuate the formal living room and dining room. A family-friendly, restaurant-style gourmet kitchen leads to the breakfast room then out to the stone courtyard. The media/family room opens out to the serene, private and secure park-like grounds and swimming pool.

    Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills in a private community, Lawrence also has some famous neighbors: Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher and their new daughter Wyatt recently moved in down the street. Talk about an A-list avenue!

      Celebrity Renters

      Stars, they’re just like us! In a world of insane, high-priced luxury real estate, many celebrities decide to go the rental route. Whether it’s for the long-term, or just during transitions – like divorce, a bi-coastal move, a lengthy vacation, a renovation project – and more, celebs are signing leases from coast-to-coast. Let’s take a peek inside the fabulous rentals of some of the biggest stars!

      Justin Bieber

      Ever since he was deemed the ‘world’s worst neighbor’ by anyone who’s ever lived next to him, Justin Bieber has been living the life of a renter. He sold his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and booked it to Atlanta for a couple months. The lure of the West Coast got ahold of him again, and he was back in no time, this time shacking up in two rented Beverly Hills condos. When the neighbors there had enough, he moved on…again. Now, Bieber is renting a $29,500 a-month Hollywood Hills mansion with its own nightclub, indoor gym, home theater and three bars.

      The jet setting hotel heiress can never stay in one place for too long, which is why she likes to sign short-term leases. This summer, Paris signed on the dotted line for a $65,000 a-month Malibu beach rental, where she shacked up for the entire month of July. She threw an A-list 4th of July party and soaked up the sun, until August, when she was on the run again!

      Khloe, Kourtney and the entire family became renters in the world-famous Hamptons this summer, while they filmed their reality TV show “Khloe and Kourtney Take The Hamptons.” During their time there, they ‘took’ a lease on a $14 million waterfront mansion, where they spent gorgeous summer nights enjoying the peace and quiet of the 3 acre, 5 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom property.

      Speaking of Kardashians, Bruce Jenner, the family patriarch, became a renter in Malibu earlier this year. He and wife Kris Jenner very publicly decided to live apart, and Bruce booked it as fast as he could to the shores of Malibu, where he took up rented residence in a $14,500 a-month bachelor pad. The 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4,400 square foot beachfront home is Bruce’s place to get some R&R away from the madness that comes along with ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’

      Jennifer Aniston may not be a perma-renter, but she knows how to work her way around a lease when she needs to. The well-tressed ‘Friend’ bought a massive $21 million dollar mansion in Bel Air in January 2012, but quickly decided it needed a major overhaul. While the contractors and construction crews moved in, Jen and longtime fiance, Justin Theroux, rented a very Zen-inspired Beverly Hills mansion with a very un-Zen $40,000 a-month price tag. They shacked up there for at least a year, while they waited out the final touches on their Bel Air dream home.

      RiRi is the ultimate celebrity renter! The world-famous pop diva has rented at least four high-priced properties in her short time in the spotlight. According to reports, she’s currently shacking up in two bi-coastal rentals. The first is a penthouse in New York City, where she’s paying $39,000 a month for swanky Chinatown pad. Back on the West Coast, she left a stalker-riddled estate and moved into a massive rental atop the Hollywood Hills, where she has the views and privacy she needs. When she’s just in vacation mode, Rihanna goes the rental route as well. This past winter, she took up residence in the most expensive home in Aspen to celebrate her 26th birthday, instagramming the luxe vacation along the way. Back in her hometown island of Barbados, Rihanna rented a massive $20 million dollar oceanfront villa with her family. It’s good to be Rihanna!

        Price

        $16,500,000

        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.

          This is where the prince of pop plays!

          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.

            Report: Courteney Cox & David Arquette Snag Buyer For Beverly Hills Architectural Gem

            $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.

              According to The Real Estalker and property records, Buffett’s deal closed on April 14, 2014, making him and his wife Jane the proud owners of a brand new California oasis.

              Fully renovated and re-interpreted by an accomplished designer, the home has a fantastic open floor plan with walls of glass opening to spectacular city and ocean views. Perfect for Jimmy and Jane, the home has an incredible master suite with his-and-hers baths and walk-in closets.

              The floor plan allows flow from the living room, family room, kitchen and dining and outdoors for entertaining. The gourmet chef’s kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and leads to a bright and secluded office.

              The house surrounds a salt water pool and spa, with views so spectacular, they could inspire a song!

              Buffett also owns multiple trophy properties in Palm Beach, FL, The Hamptons and the island paradise of St. Barths.

                    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.

                      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.
