    Bye, Bye, Brentwood!

    Reese Witherspoon has just sold the remainder of her massive Brentwood compound for $10,068,000.

    After listing the entire Brentwood property and an adjacent side lot for sale for a whopping $14 million in June 2014, Reese peeled off the smaller lot in a side deal, getting $3,550,000 for the lot (with a ‘teardown’ home) on September 11, 2014.

    Now, property records show that on October 14, 2014, Reese sold the larger part of the A-list compound, which includes a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 6,956 square foot Spanish-style estate, and adjacent lot tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard-gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

    Reese wanted out of the Brentwood compound now that she’s bought a brand-new Pacific Palisades home for $12.705 million and a stately fixer-upper in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

    When the estate first hit the market, Reese welcomed Vogue.com cameras into the home for a closer look. See Reese give you the full tour of her just-sold Brentwood home here.

      Reese Witherspoon is keeping her real estate agent busy!

      After listing her large Brentwood property and an adjacent side lot for sale for a whopping $14 million, Reese has peeled off the smaller lot in a side deal, getting $3,550,000 for the lot (with a ‘teardown’ home) she paid $3,000,000 for in December 2012. Property records show the deal closed on September 11, 2014.

      Before Reese bought it, the .66 acre parcel housed a charming 3,053 square foot cottage with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that had not been on the market in four decades. Located directly next door to two other lots Reese owned, she swooped in on the older home and made the property part of a larger, private compound. Perfectly sized and located right next door, this lot took her existing home from great…to totally A-list.

      With this sale, Reese is still asking $10.5 million for her California Spanish-style estate tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

      Reese has no need for the Brentwood compound, now that she’s bought a brand-new Pacific Palisades home for $12.705 million and a stately fixer-upper in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

        Heidi Klum Bidding Gorgeous Brentwood Estate “Auf Wiedersehen,” Asking $25 Million

        Supermodel and TV powerhouse, Heidi Klum, is saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to her stunning Brentwood estate. She just listed the 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 12,300 square foot property for $25 million. 

        According to listing details, the Italian-style villa, completed in 1999, has been given the Heidi makeover—a complete renovation that revived and refreshed a front-row oceanview estate in the premier guard-gated community in Brentwood, located off bucolic Mandeville Canyon. 

        Heidi recounts the first time she heard about the property, saying “when I first heard about this available property, I was a bit skeptical when I was told it had been empty for a long time. As a busy working mother with four young children, I was hoping to find a home that was essentially turnkey… I knew that homes that are unoccupied for any length of time do not always get the attention they need, and I wasn’t looking for a project.”

        However, the Emmy Award–winning executive producer and host of “Project Runway” and judge on “Germany’s Next Topmodel” and the top-rated “America’s Got Talent” tapped her creative skills to transform the estate into a warm family home.

        Heidi’s team of talented people worked extensively for over six months to replace every window, re-stain all the gorgeous woodwork, upgrade all the appliances and fixtures, design dream closets, build a master bath with views of the ocean and expand the garden.

        The time, energy and patience poured into the restoration paid off. Heidi says, “by the time we finished, the house was as incredible as its grounds and views. Sometimes I sit in the garden, drinking my coffee, looking at the Pacific, and really feel it is a little piece of Heaven. I think others will love the house as much as I have.”

        Set on 8.5 acres with approximately three prime acres of flat land, the grounds have an infinity-edge pool and spa, koi pond, formal rose garden, fountains, lawns, gazebos, rolling green for golf putting and driving, children’s playhouse and slide, secret gardens and hiking trails—all with unobstructed ocean views and complete privacy.

        A perfect Los Angeles escape.

          ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is looking to make a sweet real estate deal!

          Reese Witherspoon and her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, have quietly listed their sprawling Brentwood mansion for $14 million.

          Per property records and The Real Estalker, the three parcels that comprise the large estate were bought in December 2003 and December 2013 for just over $11 million, combined.

          A captivating and rare find, Witherspoon’s California Spanish-style estate is tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

          Unparalleled privacy, sprawling grounds, gorgeous gardens, richly detailed spaces, a perfect floor plan make for the ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle for any A-lister.

          Interior amenities include a double-height entry with sweeping staircase,  formal dining room with rich wood ceiling, and cozy library/den.

          A fabulous eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room open through French doors to expansive lawn, pool/spa, outdoor fireplace, sunken trampoline, children’s playground, vegetable garden and towering Eucalyptus trees.

          In total, Reese and Jim’s home has 5 bedrooms, each with private bath, including a sensational master suite with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, marble bath, two large closets, and a separate gym or office.

          Reese and her agent, David Offer, have structured the deal in two ways. The main residence is asking $10.5 million, but also available to be purchased separately is an adjacent 28,870 square foot (per assessor) parcel, which would bring the total lot size to over 1.3 acres and the total cost to $14 million.

          Reese is hoping this deal goes better than the sale of her former ranch in Ojai Reese originally had the place listed for $10 million, and price chopped it multiple times, until it finally sold for almost a million less than the $5.8 million she paid for it.

            Thrice is nice!

            Fleetwood Mac rocker Lindsey Buckingham has just picked up his third home in the swank Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood, paying $6,493,000 for a 6 bedroom home in need of some serious TLC.

            The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also owns two other high-priced homes in the same area. He paid $5.8M for one in December 2012 and $6.6M for the other, way back in December 2004.

            The third home to join Buckingham’s Brentwood property portfolio is a gracious two-story traditional home situated on a massive 27,000 square foot lot!

            While outdated by today’s standards, the property displays exquisite details and character of early 1940’s architecture. Interior features include three fireplaces, hardwood floors, crown moldings, and custom built-ins. French doors open to a sun-room that overlooks a gorgeous yard featuring a fountain, sparkling pool and scenic canyon views.

            Upstairs, you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, including a master suite with high ceilings and tons of closet space.

            Property records show that the deal closed on June 10, 2014. Now that it’s theirs, this private Brentwood gem is awaiting Lindsey and wife Kristen’s magic touch to bring it up to the standards befitting a music legend.

              Adjacent to the main house is a professional digital theater, where Stacey undoubtedly screened the latest Dreamworks flicks, a gorgeous full gym with bath, and exquisitely landscaped grounds.

                Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen just made an stunning offseason move – they listed their incredible custom-built Los Angeles estate for $50,000,000!, as first reported by TMZ.

                The genetically-gifted duo spent years waiting out the completion of this custom estate, making it’s ‘for-sale’ status a bit shocking. They unveiled the home’s beautiful interiors in the October 2013 issue of Architectural Digest and Tom said, “We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where we can enjoy being together.”

                While Brady is based in New England for much of the year, Gisele’s work takes her to Los Angeles frequently, and many assumed that the two would settle in this estate when Brady retired from football and awaited his Hall of Fame appointment.

                Alas, that won’t be happening.

                While we can’t know for sure why they’re selling, we can assume that the sale of the estate is a money-making move by the multi-millionaire couple, who picked up the vacant lot for $11,750,000 in August 2008 and sunk millions into its construction, which was completed in 2011.

                Tom and Gisele’s for-sale estate is undeniably incredible Richard Landry-designed European country estate on almost 4 acres. The French Chataeu-style home is covered in imported limestone, and every single element of the design and materials are top-notch.

                Offering stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and incredible canyon views, the home has 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms spread out over 13,890 square feet, all overlooking the most incredible infinity pool and spectacular lawns, gardens, and pathways.

                Despite selling this home, they won’t be without adequate shelter. In October 2013, Tom and Gisele spent $14 million on a chic NYC condo, and they’re also building a comparable estate in the Boston area.

                Kurt Rappaport and and Stephan Shapiro of the Westside Agency are representing the listing.

                  Property records show that Lake purchased the 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,226 square foot home on October 23, 2002 from famous “Friend” Courteney Cox for $5,600,000.

                  After living there for more than a decade, Lake listed it in July 2013 for $8,750,000, and it sold on January 24, 2014.

                  Nestled in a primo location in the heart of affluent Brentwood, the mini-estate has a roster of A-list Hollywood neighbors that includes Maria Shriver, Arianna Huffington, Lindsay Buckingham, Tobey Maguire and Betty White.

                  In addition to the famous faces living nearby, the home had a lot to offer the unknown buyer. Upon entering the house, an extraordinary great room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings and french doors gives way to an adjacent dining room and formal living room, all with perfect flow, one to the next. Upstairs, Lake’s former master bedroom suite has two fireplaces, a sitting area and radiant heated floors in the master bathroom.

                  The backyard goes beyond the ordinary, with a lush and private garden and an oversized outdoor covered living room next to a swimming pool and spa.

                    Michael Strahan is no stranger when it comes to high-end real estate. In October we reported that he relisted his TriBeCa loft for $2.25 million. And, in July we told you that he sold his Bel Air home for a $3M profit in an off-market deal. Now, rumor has it (thanks to our friend at Real Estalker) that the retired football star and co-host of Live! with Kelly and Michael, quietly purchased  a gorgeous $16 million mansion in Brentwood.

                    The 15,600 sq ft. home was built in 2013 and boasts 3 levels with 9 bedrooms and 14 baths and state of the art technology. The mansion has soaring ceilings and is equipped with the typical mansion-type amenities like a 59-foot long swimming pool and inset spa, home theater, gym, game room, wine cellar with full bar (cheers!) and an elevator so you can easily get to each level. Each master bath has its own walk-in closet and while you are lounging in the master wing you can enjoy a romantic fireplace.

                    When you step outside you are greeted with a lovely covered pool-side cabana with a grilling area to make any pool party epic.

                    We’ll have to wait and see if the rumor is shakes out, but it looks like 2014 is going to be another good year for Mr. Strahan.

                      $3,625,000

                      Actress Poppy Montgomery has just dropped $3.6 million on a brand new home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles!

                      The purchase comes on the heels of a $250,000 loss on the sale of her former home in Pacific Palisades, which she sold on April 16, 2013 for $2,881,500. She originally paid $3,133,530 for the home in January 2005.

                      Montgomery lost some real money on the sale of her former home before she swooped up a new, even more expensive home, but it’s not likely that she’s hurting for funds. The Australian-born actress is best known for playing FBI agent Samantha Spade on the CBS drama Without a Trace from 2002 to 2009 and for her latest role as Det. Carrie Wells on the CBS police drama Unforgettable

                      Montgomery gave birth to a baby girl named Violet in April 2013, just days after she sold her Pacific Palisades home.

                      With a new baby joining her family, Montgomery has put the loss behind her and has moved on to a stunning 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 3,089 square foot Spanish-style hacienda with mesmerizing views of the private vineyard and hills beyond.

                      Inside, a dramatic and glamorously chic great room with vaulted beamed ceilings and a large fireplace is the heart of the home. The adjacent kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and a large center island. Down the hall, two bedrooms and a library and an office complete the main floor. Upstairs, the private master has a fireplace, tree top views and a spa-like bath.

                      Outside, the home has partially-covered verandas, a lap pool and terraced lawns.

                      Property records show the deal was finalized on October 31, 2013. Mary Lu Tuthill of Coldwell Banker-Brentwood represented the sellers and Clifford Rowe of Teles Properties, Inc was Montgomery’s agent.
