    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.

      $3,379,000

      ‘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.

          Kourtney Kardashian has just unveiled the stunning and spunky decor inside her Calabasas, CA home on Domaine.com and dropped the bomb that the home is about to hit the market!

          The 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,199 square foot Colonial-style abode on Prado De Las Peras in Calabasas was purchased by Kardashian on December 3, 2010 for $1,700,000. Kourtney and interior designer Jeff Andrews have spent months meticulously decorating the home in a style that longtime boyfriend Scott Disick describes as “Alice in Wonderland meets Beetlejuice.

          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.”

          First on their list for their next home: 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.”

          Kourtney and Scott have already been spotted house hunting for their next ‘home sweet home.’ In September 2013, the duo were spotted checking out a 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 7,478 square feet estate in Hidden Hills with a price tag of $6,495,000!

            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.

              After a year of turmoil and scandal that resulted in divorce, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are officially selling their sprawling Tarzana home.

              According to the Los Angeles Times and  The Real Estalker, the home is now officially listed for sale for $5,499,000.

              In the months before the home went up for sale, news reports revealed that Lamar has been battling drug addiction and Khloe was trying to save him – and their four-year marriage. When all their efforts to rectify their marriage failed, Khloe filed for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

              Now, it’s time to split the marital assets – including this incredible mansion, which was purchased in both of their names before being transferred into a shared trust. Khloe and Lamar paid $3,950,000 for the spread in December 2009 –  shortly after they married in a quickie wedding ceremony after just a month of dating.

              If you have the cash money to buy the house where Khloe and Lamar spent happier days, you’ll be buying a guard-gated Mulholland Park custom-built home located at the end of a private enclave cul-de-sac. Huge grassy lawns and a dramatic entry courtyard make a great first impression as you pull up to the home. Inside, a dramatic entryway leads to luxe living spaces that include 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, stone floors, a theater.

              Outside, Khloe and Lamar’s Tarzana home has an outdoor kitchen with 2 refrigerators, a bbq bit, covered cabanas and a pool and spa.

              If the home looks familiar, it’s because they’ve filmed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and their spin-off “Khloe & Lamar” all over the property.

              Tomer and Isadora Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing. 

                Rumor ALERT: Retired Football Star Michael Strahan Reportedly Buys Brentwood Mansion

                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.

                  $17,350,000

                  Leonardo DiCaprio is now officially “departing” from his seven bedroom, six bathroom Malibu beachfront home.

                  ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ star just sold the stunning spread for $17.35 million. While it’s nothing to scoff at, the hunky actor got considerably less than the $23 million he initially asked when he first heaved the property on the market in November 2012.

                  We thought DiCaprio would “never let go” of his Cape Cod inspired home, as he listed it for lease with a $150,000-a-month price tag for the past two summer seasons and then officially re-listed it for sale for $18 million.

                  DiCaprio purchased his just-sold Malibu manse on October 9, 2002 for $6 million. The unique property is made up of three separate houses sitting on one large, coveted, 2,633 square-foot lot. A four-bedroom main house sits on the stunning Malibu ocean-front, and a two-bedroom detached guest house and third detached loft with gym, media room, seventh bedroom and office area follow behind. Completely renovated from head to toe, DiCaprio’s unique home also included private parking, maid quarters, gardens, lawns and private beach entry – making it one luxurious beachfront compound.

                  DiCaprio is shunning his West Coast life and  becoming an even larger fixture in New York City, where he just paid millions for a condo in a residential development that combines green and sustainable building practices with wellness and health-centric features for residents.

                      Well, that was fast.

                      Andie MacDowell has just sold the Marina Del Rey home she owned for a mere 9 months. Purchased by the ageless actress in February 2013 for $1,775,000, property records show MacDowell just sold the place on November 8, 2013 for $1,750,000 – a $25,000 loss.

                      Marketed with the very same listing photos as when she bought it, it’s unclear if the L’Oreal spokeswoman ever even moved into the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,998 square foot Cape Cod-style home on a corner lot in Marina Del Rey’s Silver Strand area.

                      Described as “modern and spacious with a loft-like interior,” the stark white home has soaring ceilings, skylights and large glass sliding doors, which illuminate the house with natural light and let the ocean breezes flow in. One of four bedrooms is tucked away, making it perfect for guest quarters. The other three  bedrooms are upstairs and include an oversized master with spiral staircase leading to an impressive double loft area and  master bath. Outside is a relaxing space with sparkling pool to lounge in on warm California days.

                      MacDowell bought this home in early 2013 after selling her longtime home in Asheville, North Carolina for a cool $3 million.
