    Kate Bosworth is selling her airy and Bohemian-esque Los Angeles home for $2,499,000!

    The blonde beauty, who had her breakout role in the surfer flick ‘Blue Crush,’ paid $2,100,000 when she purchased the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom place in 2005. 9 years and one brand new husband later (director Michael Polish), Bosworth is looking to sell and move on.

    Bosworth’s private pad is set behind a discreet gate that leads you down a long drive to this contemporary home on over half an acre.

    Inside and out, the home has incredible space for entertaining and casual living – and it’s decorated just as you’d expect from the fashionista actress, who has perfected the ‘minimalist chic’ look.

    The floor plan is open and flowing, with the dining and living areas seamlessly connected. In the heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen features professional appliances and huge windows that overlook the patio and views beyond.

    The home’s 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths include the upstairs master retreat with sitting area, two walk-in closets, spa-like bath with double Carrara marble vanity and a jetted tub.

    French doors leads to multiple outdoor areas, including a lap pool and an outdoor living room with incredible light and canyon views.

      Colombian-born ‘Modern Family’ actress Sofia Vergara has just scooped up an Italian-style villa in the heart of Beverly Hills, paying $10.6 million for a 7 bedrooom, 11 bathroom, 11,400 square foot estate.

      Vergara has plenty of dough to afford this lavish So Cal spread. According to Forbes, she is the highest paid actor on TV for the second year in a row, hauling in an incredible $30 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

      With all those dollars at her disposal, Vergara jumped into real estate and just closed on a gorgeous and grand 90210 estate.

      Her new home features a soaring entryway, a wood-paneled study, a spacious Chef’s kitchen with center island and breakfast nook, and a family room with French doors that open to an outdoor entertaining area.

      Upstairs, Sofia’s new master suite has a fireplace and separate his-and-hers baths and closets. Just down the hall, there are 2 guest bedrooms with en suite baths, and third large guest suite with balcony, en suite bath, walk-in closet and outdoor terrace with fireplace.

      On the third level, you’ll find a great bar for entertaining, a massive 3,000- bottle wine cellar and tasting room, movie theater/card room, as well as a gym with sauna (that could also be an 8th bedroom). The estate also features 2 maids rooms and a laundry room.

      Outside, the grounds feature a gorgeous pool, spa and meticulous landscaping.

      Vergara is currently engaged to Nick Loeb and they’re expected to tie the knot soon!

        Price

        $949,000

        Actress Melissa Joan Hart is proving that stars are “just like us” – they want a short commute!

        The  actress just spent $949,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home across the street from where she films her TV show ”Melissa & Joey.” Instead of battling Los Angeles‘ notoriously brutal traffic, the actress just needs to step out her front door and cross the street to get to work.

        Location, location, location!

        While the home is not typical celebrity digs (aka a giant, glamorous mansion), Hart’s new home has space inside and out, remodeled bathrooms, a large den, high ceilings, a large front yard, a cozy rear patio and seclusion from the street.

        The married mother of three boys also owns two additional homes, one near Lake Tahoe, and the other in Westport, Connecticut. In the past, she’s owned massive estates around Los Angeles.

        For this sale, Sigifredo Verano of Re/Max Town Center represented the seller, and Matt Epstein of Berkshire Hathaway HomeService represented Melissa Joan Hart.

          Kourtney Kardashian and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick have just sold their home in Calabasas!

          According to the Los Angeles Times, Kourtney and Scott found a buyer and made a deal for $2,975,000, which is less than their $3,499,000 asking price, but still a nice $1.2M more than the $1.7M that they paid for the 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,199 square foot Colonial-style abode in December 2010.

          Kourtney and interior designer Jeff Andrews spent months meticulously decorating the home in a style that Disick describes as “Alice in Wonderland meets Beetlejuice.”  The buyer was smitten with some of their decor choices, as the LA Times is also reporting that the buyer paid an additional $125,000 for select furnishings.

          Parting with the home will be tough for Kourtney, who told Domaine.com that she loves “every single thing about this house, but I’m excited to take on a new project.”

          She’s already found that next big project: she and Scott recently purchased retired NFL star Keyshawn Johnson’s estate just down the street, paying $8.495,000 to upgrade to the 8 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 11,746 square foot home.

          When Kourtney and Scott listed this just-sold home, they said it was because they needed more space. “Our family is bigger since we moved in,” Kourtney told Domaine.com. “I’d like to have a guest room and more space outside for the kids.” They’re definitely getting that coveted space in their new 1.86 acre property.

          Another bonus? A built-in babysitting nearby. Recently-divorced sister Khloe Kardashian just bought Justin Bieber’s house down the street!

            Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen List Custom LA Estate For $50 Million

            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.

              Actress Maggie Lawson is downsizing in Los Angeles!

              After listing her eco-friendly home for $2.2 million in January 2014, there’s now a ‘sale pending’ sign hanging out front of the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home, which Maggie and longtime boyfriend James Roday have lived in since 2011. Lawson and Roday decided to go decidedly smaller on their next home, and just closed on a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,419 square foot home for $1.1 million.

              Lawson decided to downsize her home life, but her career is in full bloom. She is best known for her role as Detective Juliet “Jules” O’Hara in the TV show Psych, and in 2014, she’ll be the lead in a show called “Save The Date,” about a newly single woman who drunkly leaves a deposit on a wedding venue and is tasked with finding the right man in time.

              Offscreen, Dawson is pretty sure she’s found the right house at the right time. Located in the same neighborhood as her former home, her smaller bungalow-style abode is a refurbished 1888 home that was relocated from Normandie in Los Feliz to Bronson Canyon as part of a project sponsored in the late 1920′s and early 1930′s by the Los Angeles Times and the Home Planning Bureau of LA. It was moved to be showcased as a shining example of what this restoration movement could do.

              Today, one might use words “repurposed” or “green” to describe the home, which light, bright and thoroughly modern. Inside, clean lines lead you from one room to another, and outside, there are plenty of distinct areas to entertain in and enjoy the California sunshine.

              Holly Purcell of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties represented the sellers and Margaret Arana of Nourmand & Associates was Lawson’s agent.

                ‘The Fast and the Furious’ actress Jordana Brewster is selling her stunning Hollywood home for $3,795,000.

                Property records show that the Brazilian-American actress paid $3,375,000 for the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2,868 square foot architectural stunner in March 2011.

                Long before Brewster called the place home, Ellen DeGeneres walked the halls of this house after she purchased it on June 11, 1999 for $1,700,000. In typical Ellen Degeneres fashion, she quickly grew tired of the home and and sold it on February 8, 2002 for $1,930,000. Ellen has since moved up in the real estate world and currently resides in a home called “the best home in Los Angeles” that she paid nearly $40 million for.

                Brewster’s for-sale home is a private and sophisticated architectural retreat in a prime Sunset Strip location. Situated all on one level, the wonderful open floor plan features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a den, and gorgeous screening room. Walls of glass open onto lush terraced gardens, and nearby, you’ll find a pool, spa, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area.

                Perfect for its multiple celebrity owners, this home is gated for maximum privacy.

                  Toni Braxton is proof that you can start anew!

                  Six months after the singer and star of the reality TV show, “Braxton Family Values,” emerged from her second bout with bankruptcy, she put down close to $3 million on a new Calabasas crib adjacent to Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian.

                  According to reports, Braxton is the proud new owner of a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,323 square foot home in the exclusive and celebrity-infested “The Oaks” neighborhood.

                  Braxton’s new purchase is a French-country inspired single-story home with a a private courtyard entry. Inside, gleaming wood floors, custom beam ceilings and built-in cabinetry accentuate the formal living area. Adjacent, a magnificent chef’s kitchen has Sub Zero and Wolf stainless appliances, granite counters and elaborate tile work and custom cabinetry. Toni’s new private master suite features a sitting area, dual walk-in closets and a bathroom with limestone floors, a spa tub, designer tile shower, water closet and vanity.

                  Outside, a lushly landscaped private yard includes a salt water pool, spa, loggia, multiple fountains and outdoor fireplace.

                  This new purchase is quite the financial accomplishment for Braxton, who claimed debts of about $50,000,000 when she first filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

                      Petite actress Christina Ricci, who’s recently started the “Riccing” trend of squeezing into small spaces, is now exiting another relatively small space – her 1,891 square foot Los Feliz bungalow.

                      Ricci just listed the chic, single story 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom home, located in the most desirable area of Los Feliz: “The Oaks.” She paid $1,505,000 for the place December 8, 2005. Now, she’s asking $1,695,000.

                      Located down a gated drive, the traditional-style home has an open floor plan, with living family rooms that sit adjacent to a dining room with French doors that opens to a covered patio, pool and terraced gardens.

                      The 2 bedrooms are both en-suites, and Ricci’s master bedroom also includes an attached sitting room/dressing room.

                      In April 2012, Christina put the property up for lease, asking $10,000 a month.
