    From one mogul to another!

    CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves and his wife, TV personality Julie Chen, have just purchased a beachfront Malibu estate from Microsoft co-founder (and billionaire) Paul Allen, paying $28,800,000. The deal closed on April 2, 2014 – just in time for summer!

    The massive home has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 5,794 square feet, and sits on prime beachfront property on Malibu’s exclusive and coveted Carbon Beach. Allen purchased the home on June 9, 2010 for $25,067,500.

    Moonves’ house is next door to the John Lautner house formerly owned by Courteney Cox and David Arquette, which they sold to former Los Angeles Dodgers owners (and now divorced) Frank and Jamie McCourt on July 31, 2007 for $27,250,000.

    Leslie and Julie are upgrading their lives in Malibu, trading a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,014 square foot home on La Costa Beach for their new Carbon Beach digs. Their former Malibu estate is on the market with a $12,995,000 price tag.

    Moonves also owns a $14 million mansion in Beverly Hills and a condo in Pacific Palisades.

      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.
