      3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,732 square feet, views

      Price

      $1,278,630

      Gorgeous actress Eva Mendes just sold her Hollywood starter home for almost $10,000 over asking.

      Property records show that Ryan Gosling’s girlfriend just sold the home on April 21, 2014 for $1,278,630 – which is $9,630 more than the $1,269,000 she was asking for the place when it went on the market in March 2014.

      Eva Mendes isn’t the only name on the deed for this home - she actually owned it with her ex-boyfriend George Gargurevich. Eva and George bought the house for $584,000 on December 2, 2002, back when they were happily coupled up in what eventually became an 8-year romance that ended in 2010.

      While they never had their “happily ever after,” together, they made a pretty penny on this real estate investment.

      This just-sold home is a dramatic and downright funky Mid Century home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom and 1,732 square feet of tropical-inspired living space. Renovated over the course of the decade, the beautifully-designed living space is graced with explosive city views.  A true bohemian den, the home has “artful pockets of space for nomadic entertaining…and vintage wall paper, exquisite lighting and European fixtures.”

      Like many homes with views of Los Angeles, Mendes’ starter home was brimming with walls of glass that open to multiple outdoor decks. The outdoor gardens have fruit trees, chickens, raised vegetable boxes, an outdoor shower and a cedar hot tub.

      Eva hadn’t lived in this particular home in quite a while – she owns and occupies a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home nearby that she purchased in April 2008 for $3.2M. Eva’s hunky boyfriend Ryan Gosling has recently been spotted outside this particular home, squashing rumors that the duo were on the rocks.

      Recently, rumors have started circulating that Ryan and Eva are engaged.

       

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

        $790,000

        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.

          Actor Tim Curry has just sold his stunning Spanish-style home in Los Angeles for $3.2 million.

          ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ actor purchased the place from ‘Frasier’ star David Hyde Pierce in 2006, paying $2 million for the 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,365 square foot home at 4724 Cromwell Avenue.

          Under Curry’s ownership, the 1920′s era home underwent an extensive restoration that brought it up to the modern century, all while keeping the period details and charm of the private home that sits on park-like grounds.

          Tim Curry has had a successful acting career on the stage and screen, and in the realm of real estate, he seems to have the magic touch. Three of his former estates have gone on to be the homes of other massive celebrities. He sold a house in 2005 to Christina Ricci, another one that he owned is currently Colin Farrell’s Los Angeles home, and most notably, he owned the home at 2666 Aberdeen Avenue that Robert Pattinson just sold to Jim Parsons for $6,375,000.

            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 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.

                  Celine Dion has just price-chopped the crown jewel of her real estate holdings – a 5.5 acre, 17,000 square foot Florida estate with water park – by $10 million!

                  Originally listed in August 2013 for $72.5 million, Dion just dropped the sky-high price by 8 figures to lure a potential buyer. Now listed for $62.5 million, the Vegas-based Dion is hoping for a quick sale.

                  In 2005, Dion and her husband/manager René Angélil paid $12,525,000 for the home at 215 S. Beach Road. They proceeded to tear down a perfectly nice 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 8,579 square foot home to build this incredible Bahamian-inspired estate, which was completed in 2010.

                  Located in the exclusive Floridian inlet of Jupiter Island, and sitting right on the bank of the Atlantic Ocean, the property is comprised of the main residence and 5 individual pavilions including a double 4 bedroom guest house (for a total of 8 bedrooms); a tennis house with simulated golf range leading to the tennis court; a pool house with built-in grill and separate kitchen; and a cozy beach house with second floor sleeping loft and massage room. There are three separate pools on the property, one at the rear by the ocean, and two connecting pools at the front with an insane water park.

                  The main residence is an open-concept that takes full advantage of the ocean views. The main level features a formal living room, a large kitchen, family room and dining room, a ground floor bedroom suite with huge walk-in closet, bathroom and screened-in porch, a media room and a separate guest wing.

                  The second floor features two children’s bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms, children’s den and a spectacular master bedroom. The master suite has a wrap-around terrace overlooking the ocean and two separate decks, one with outdoor fireplace, the other with hot tub. As expected in a diva’s home, Dion’s house has a fabulous dressing room with tons of built-ins, a gorgeous ensuite bathroom and every woman’s dream: an enormous walk-in closet with separate fully-automated clothes and shoe racks.

                  Other  features include a 7,000 square foot fully-finished basement, pool house, staff quarters and elevator.

                  For $72 million, $62.5 million, Dion is offering the home fully furnished.

                    Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is finalizing the sale of his longtime Pacific Palisades estate, which was listed for $9,995,000. Sources close to the deal say the buyer is paying close to asking for the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 6,753 square foot estate that Gooding bought for $3.5 million in May 2000.

                    Nestled in the heart of Pacific Palisades, Cuba’s almost-sold Contemporary English estate is set  amidst mature trees on almost an acre of lush, park-like grounds, with complete privacy and seclusion.

                    Close to the Village and beach, Cuba’s estate has an open floor plan that includes a formal living room with wrap-around windows, and a dining room with wine cellar and butler’s pantry. A cook’s kitchen and family room combo has an adjacent mudroom/office. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art theatre, detached guest suite, 6+ car garage/gym and 2 laundry rooms.

                    Outside, resort-like grounds include a private drive, expansive lawn, lighted hockey rink and pool/spa.

                    Last year, Gooding made another real estate move, listing his starter home in Northridge, California for $729,000.
