    The dancing and acting dynamo that is Julianne Hough has just bought herself a new place to kick up her feet.

    According to property records and The Real Estalker, Ms. Hough spent $1,943,575 for a house high in the Hollywood Hills that’s very reminiscent of her Nashville and country roots

    With charming rustic chic ambience, Julianne’s new abode has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 2,101 square feet of living space. Just like Julianne, the house is a knockout, and the views will take your breath away.

    Delivering exactly what a house high in the hills should have, the place has magnificent wrap-around views of city lights, far-reaching mountains and the famous Hollywood sign.

    Inside, the light and bright home has a large chef’s kitchen with center island and top-of-the-line appliances, a step-down living room, a great master suite with a sumptuous bath. With perfect indoor/outdoor flow, the home has a lanai that flows out to a massive lawn and pool area.

    Julianne famously dated Ryan Seacrest for 2+ years, and during their time together, she bunked up with him in the insane $37M compound he bought from Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. While it’s no Seacrest compound, Hough’s new bachelorette pad is a sweet spot for this rising star.

            Once Broke ‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Lena Headey Buys Sherman Oaks Fixer-Upper

            Nearly a year after ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Lena Headey claimed she had “less than $5″ in her bank account, the actress, who plays Queen Cersei on the hit show, has just purchased a dated fixer-upper in Sherman Oaks, CA for $790,000.

            Property records show the deal for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1,808 square foot home closed on April 4, 2014.

            In April 2013, Headey opened up about the reality of her financial situation in legal docs related to her 2012 divorce filing from husband Peter Loughran. In the docs, she was petitioning for half of the couple’s $46,000 2011 tax return, saying she needed the money asap to make ends meet for her and their 2 year-old son. The media reports were shocking, since many people figured she was well-compensated for her role as a main character on one of the most popular shows currently on TV.

            Her precarious financial situation was exacerbated when she sold her former home in Los Angeles‘ Laurel Canyon-area at a loss. That home was purchased by Headey and her ex-husband for $1,685,000 in June 2008 and sold for $1,349,000 in late 2012.

            Her new home isn’t much to look at (by Hollywood standards), but it does have potential. Located in one of the best neighborhoods Sherman Oaks has to offer, the traditional home has a mid-century modern twist and sits on a beautiful and quiet tree-lined street.

            Spacious, bright and airy, with a good floor plan and great ‘bones,’ Headey’s new home has a decent-sized kitchen that conveniently opens to the family room for easy entertaining.

            A large master suite has ample closets and a private bath.

            The backyard has a lovely pool, covered patio and gardens.

            Ben DI Benedetto of Keller Williams Studio City represented the sellers (who were the original owners) and Zoe Rudolph of John Aaroe Group was Headey’s real estate agent.

              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!

                  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.

                    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 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.
