    Bye, Bye Bird Streets!

    Jodie Foster just sold her Hollywood Hills mansion in the famed Bird Streets after struggling to find a buyer. She listed the spread for $6.4 million in June 2013 and it languished on the market for more than a year. It took a couple price chops to get the deal done. Property records show the deal closed on October 6, 2014 for $4,995,000.

    Foster purchased the home in 1995 from model Cheryl Tiegs. With a distinguished address and oodles of famous neighbors, Foster’s Spanish Villa was the ultimate celebrity hideaway for the notoriously private actress.

    The home has 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, an office and an attached guest suite. Adjacent to a formal dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to a stunning kitchen. A luxurious master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closets, fireplace and sauna.

    Outside, the central courtyard pool and brick patio are shielded by a high-reaching hedge for the utmost seclusion – a must for the notoriously private Foster, who had never openly discussed her private life in the public until she outed herself in an emotional speech while accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.

    In other real estate moves, Jodie sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $8.3 million in January 2012 and purchased a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 3,752 square foot home in Beverly Hills for  $11,750,000 on June 25, 2012.

      After dropping $40 million on Tom Brady and Gisele’s insane French Chateau-style mansion, Dr. Dre just listed his former home in the ‘Bird Streets’ of the Hollywood Hills for $35 million.

      The rapper, producer and headphone mogul just inked a deal with Apple to sell the company he started with music industry legend Jimmy Iovine for $3 billion.

      With all that extra cash, the already ballin mogul is now a certified billionaire with money to burn.

      Dre’s first splurge? A major mansion upgrade.

      With the purchase of Tom and Gisele’s mansion, Dr. Dre is moving on to the ‘Next Episode’ and selling his 6 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 9,696 square foot home for $35 million.

      Dre purchased the home on December 21, 2011 for $15,400,000.

      According to the listing, Dre’s for-sale estate is “without question, the best View estate in the city.” Perched atop a promontory and gated at the end of a cul-de-sac, this home has a jetliner 300 degree vista with lights sparkling from downtown to the Pacific Ocean. With a flat, expansive, grassy yard, infinity edge pool – all overlooking the most striking views and setting in Los Angeles. Completely rebuilt in 2001, the sprawling home features a library/media, den, guest house, and wine cellar, all in total serenity and privacy.

      LA super agent Kurt Rappaport of the Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.

                  $4,599,000

                  Now for sale in Los Angeles – a piece of rock and roll history: 1567 Blue Jay Way. Known best for inspiring George Harrison‘s song “Blue Jay Way“, this property is in a class of its own. The home can only be reached from downtown Los Angeles via a complicated street route, difficult to navigate on a foggy night — thus creating the backdrop for the opening lines of the song: There’s a fog upon L.A., and my friends have lost their way.”

                  Now, someone with deep pockets (and perhaps a penchant for music history) can find their way home. Home to the exact property that inspired this famous Beatles song on the Magical Mystery Tour album, to be precise. Harrison rented the home in August 1967 and was inspired to write the song after an evening where The Beatles’ publicist Derek Taylor was late arriving back to the estate.

                  With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4,116 square feet and a pedigree that money can not buy, the sellers are asking $4,599,000. 1567 Blue Jay Way has amazing views, massive walls for art, glass sliding doors that expose house to courtyard with large outdoor space that includes a wrap around patio, fire pit, pool and spa. A massive open floor plan with high ceilings offers tons of lights and the ideal indoor/outdoor living for Los Angeles. It’s well-suited for parties and entertaining. The home also includes a gorgeous screening room, touch screen surround throughout and a 2 car garage with direct entrance. The grand entrance is just the beginning of what this home has to offer in the sought after bird streets. This home in celebrity row is close to all things important in Los Angeles: The Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills and Century City are just minutes away.
