    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.

      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.

        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.

          If you’re looking for a warm place to ride out the cold winter months, look no further than supermodel Cindy Crawford’s beachfront Malibu home, now available to rent for $19,500 a month.

          Crawford and her nightlife entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber purchased the beachfront home on April 1998 for $1,850,000. It has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2,413 square feet. Located in a private and serene location, the home is down a private road right, conveniently off the Pacific Coast Highway

          Offered fully furnished, the beach front rental has panoramic ocean views and the front doors open right onto the sand. Offered as a long term rental, the home will cost you $19,000 a month and will skyrocket to $45,000 in the peak summer months of June, July and August.

          Rent this place and you might see your landlords all the time. Cindy, Rande and their two kids live just down the road in Malibu in a 6 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 10,071 square foot beachfront mansion.

            9 Months After Buying, Andie MacDowell Sells Marina Del Rey Home At A Loss

            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.

             

              Billionaire Elon Musk Buys His Neighbor’s Home in Bel Air For $6.75 Million

              Billionaire business mogul Elon Musk has just paid $6.75 million for his across-the-street neighbor’s home in ritzy Bel Air, California.

              Musk, who has amassed billions via Tesla, SpaceX and PayPal, currently lives across the street in a home he purchased on January 1, 2013 for $17,000,000. His current home has 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and has 20,248 square feet of interior living space and incredible outdoor spaces.

              According to property records, his brand new purchase, just a few hundred feet away, was purchased on October 24, 2013 for $6,750,000.  The ranch-style home is substantially smaller than his existing abode, with just 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and 2,756 square feet, with an oval pool and private guest cottage. The home was the longtime residence of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” actor Gene Wilder, who lived there from 1976-2007.

              What it lacks in size, Musk’s new property makes up for in opportunity. The home is the perfect location to develop a dream property. It sits on a one acre promontory overlooking a beautiful stream, mature trees and the white sand traps of the 13th green and 14th fairway of the prestigious Bel-Air Country Club Golf Course.  The lot is elevated, allowing for distant city views.

              Musk currently lives in an incredible estate that he previously rented for three years before he officially purchased it January 2013. It’s likely he’ll either capitalize on the opportunity presented by the new home and build an even more over-the-top mansion, or he’ll raze the existing home and create even better views and privacy for his current home.

              He’s not the first billionaire to buy their neighbor’s homes. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer both recently paid millions of dollars for adjacent and nearby properties to ensure privacy.

              With a net worth of $6.7 billion, Musk has the purchasing power to gobble up all the pricey estates for miles and miles.

              Musk has made headlines recently when he unveiled plans for the Hyperloop, a rapid-speed train that claims to be able to transport passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes.

              Report: Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer Spends $11.2 Million For Funeral Home Near Her Suburban Home

              Just in time for Halloween, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer is the proud new owner of a funeral home in Palo Alto, CA.

              According to reports by The Silicon Valley Business Journal and Palo Alto Weekly, Mayer bought the property that houses Roller & Hapgood & Tinney, Palo Alto‘s oldest funeral home for $11.2 million. The funeral home is set to close its doors on October 31st, and the land on which it sits is currently zoned “planned community,” and a 2012 Palo Alto city report identified the funeral-home property as a potential site for up to 21 residences.

              No one knows exactly what Mayer plans to do with the property, but the deal does resemble the buying spree Mark Zuckerberg just went on in Palo Alto. Zuckerberg bought the three homes adjacent to his main residence to protect his privacy and to stop a developer from marketing a home as being “next door to Mark Zuckerberg. Mayer may be taking a similar approach, as her Palo Alto residence is just a short block from her new purchase.

              Standard with high-profile buyers, Mayer’s name isn’t directly associated with the purchase. County transfer tax records show a blind LLC paid $11.2 million for the site and the deal closed on Oct. 7th.

                Reality TV star and Kardashian step-brother Brody Jenner has just dropped $1,895,000 on a quaint and quiet Malibu hideaway.

                According to property records, Bruce Jenner‘s son closed on the 3 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, 1,517 square foot home on October 11, 2013.

                With his new Malibu digs, Brody is now neighbors with his brother Brandon and his wife Leah, who recently dropped $1.455 million on a rundown Malibu teardown that they will likely rebuild into their dream home. Their dad isn’t that far away either! After secretly splitting from Kardashian Momager and matriarch Kris Jenner earlier this year, Brody’s dad Bruce Jenner also became a Malibu resident when he rented a beachfront Malibu home for $14,500 a month after moving out of the Kardashian compound in Calabasas.

                Brody’s new Malibu home is a rare gem and came onto the market for the very first time this summer. Very private, the 4+ acre home also has a guest house and is set among the oaks and on a running creek. The existing home is an updated rustic cottage with hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces, ocean view and plenty of usable land to potentially expand the home. In a unique Malibu location, Jenner’s new property has land and plenty of room for horses, but is just seconds to the beach.

                Her Madgesty has sold her massive castle in Beverly Hills!

                Madonna, the Queen of Pop, who publicly listed her Beverly  Hills estate for $22.5 million in January 2013, has snagged a mystery buyer who paid a reported $20 million.

                Before it came (and lingered on the market), Madonna’s posh pad had long been rumored to be a “pocket listing”–not officially on the MLS, but still for sale–for $28 million, but since the price wasn’t in ‘Vogue’ with buyers, Madonna was forced to try the public market at a lower price.

                After about 10 months on the market, Madonna has finally sold for $20 million – a nice profit of $8 million dollars more than the $12 million she paid in June 2003, when she bought the home from actress Sela Ward. ‘Take a Bow,’ Madonna – nice work!

                The whole time the home was on the market, only a single image showing the home’s ‘Borderline’ was available, so we never got to peep the interiors. We do know Madonna’s just-sold property starts with a 500-foot, gated, tree-lined drive that leads to an acre and a quarter of lushly landscaped grounds, offering total privacy for residents to ‘express themselves.’

                The recently remodeled house has all the finest details and amenities: nine bedrooms, two living/reception rooms, a two-story dining room, junior dining room, large kitchen with breakfast room/den, and a full size screening room and theater. As if that weren’t enough space to ‘Cherish,’ the property also has two offices, assistants offices, a gym, staff rooms, two guest houses, a north/south tennis court, and a resort-size pool. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the house meticulously. It’s clear, by taking one look at her former home, that Madonna is a ‘Material Girl.’

                Madonna is no property ‘Virgin,’ as she also has homes in New York and London.

                  $6,400,000

                  Months after decamping to the $11 million dollar Hidden Hills mansion she bought from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Jessica Simpson has finally sold her former home in Beverly Hills for $6.4 million.

                  Listed by the former reality TV “Newlywed,” turned billion-dollar fashion designer for $7,995,000 in May 2013, the home finally found a buyer for about $1.5 million less than asking price. It’s still a tidy profit from the $5,275,000 she originally paid in December 2005.  Simpson purchased the 5-bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,500 square-foot estate right after she announced to the world that she and husband Nick Lachey were divorcing.

                  Simpson’s, fiance Eric Johnson and baby girl Maxwell had been living as one happy family in the home for the past few years, but with the new addition of a new baby boy, Ace Knute, the family of four was ready to sell the estate off and nest in their new Hidden Hills home.

                  Built in 1991, the custom home is evocative of the stylish real estate found in the Hamptons and is located in one of the most private, guarded celebrity enclaves. Simpson tapped celebrity decorator Rachel Ashwell to do the home up in her trademark “Shabby Chic” style.

                  The property is walled and gated, with a stone courtyard that leads to a koi pond. Inside, high ceilings punctuate the formal living room and dining room. A family-friendly, restaurant-style gourmet kitchen leads to the breakfast room then out to the stone courtyard. The media/family room opens out to the serene, private and secure park-like grounds and swimming pool.

                  The home also has quite the Hollywood pedigree. Prior to Simpson and her family living here, Paul Hogan, Tom and Kathy Freston, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rick Yorn all called this gorgeous Beverly Hills property home.
