    ‘American Pie’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ actor Jason Biggs has just listed his Mid-Century Modern home in the Hollywood Hills for $2,995,000.

    In a prime Sunset Strip location, the swank home has a semi-private drive and is walled and gated for the utmost privacy. The hillside locale highlights city-to-ocean views within this 2,756 square foot home, which Biggs purchased from Wonder Years actor Fred Savage in 2007 for $2,249,000.

    The main level provides generous open-concept living room, vaulted ceilings and abundant light with a great room, dining room and kitchen areas all opening up to both the view and the pool/terrace.

    The first floor is completed by a spacious office or den, a massive en-suite guest room and courtyard-access, a secured garage and a large dog run.

    Elsewhere inside, Biggs’ Master suite has the same explosive views, a luxe en-suite bath, and a sensational media/screening room with its own bath and state-of-the-art entertainment system.

    The reason for the move? Perhaps Jason and his wife, Jenny Mollen, are looking for a place that’s a bit more family-friendly. Married since 2008, the duo welcomed their first child, a boy named Sid, in February 2014.

    Peter Maurice of Rodeo Realty holds the listing.

        Celebrity Renters

        Stars, they’re just like us! In a world of insane, high-priced luxury real estate, many celebrities decide to go the rental route. Whether it’s for the long-term, or just during transitions – like divorce, a bi-coastal move, a lengthy vacation, a renovation project – and more, celebs are signing leases from coast-to-coast. Let’s take a peek inside the fabulous rentals of some of the biggest stars!

        Justin Bieber

        Justin Bieber’s Hollywood Hills Rental

        Ever since he was deemed the ‘world’s worst neighbor’ by anyone who’s ever lived next to him, Justin Bieber has been living the life of a renter. He sold his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and booked it to Atlanta for a couple months. The lure of the West Coast got ahold of him again, and he was back in no time, this time shacking up in two rented Beverly Hills condos. When the neighbors there had enough, he moved on…again. Now, Bieber is renting a $29,500 a-month Hollywood Hills mansion with its own nightclub, indoor gym, home theater and three bars.

        Paris Hilton

        The jet setting hotel heiress can never stay in one place for too long, which is why she likes to sign short-term leases. This summer, Paris signed on the dotted line for a $65,000 a-month Malibu beach rental, where she shacked up for the entire month of July. She threw an A-list 4th of July party and soaked up the sun, until August, when she was on the run again!

        Khloe, Kourtney and the entire family became renters in the world-famous Hamptons this summer, while they filmed their reality TV show “Khloe and Kourtney Take The Hamptons.” During their time there, they ‘took’ a lease on a $14 million waterfront mansion, where they spent gorgeous summer nights enjoying the peace and quiet of the 3 acre, 5 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom property.

        Speaking of Kardashians, Bruce Jenner, the family patriarch, became a renter in Malibu earlier this year. He and wife Kris Jenner very publicly decided to live apart, and Bruce booked it as fast as he could to the shores of Malibu, where he took up rented residence in a $14,500 a-month bachelor pad. The 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4,400 square foot beachfront home is Bruce’s place to get some R&R away from the madness that comes along with ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’

        Jennifer Aniston may not be a perma-renter, but she knows how to work her way around a lease when she needs to. The well-tressed ‘Friend’ bought a massive $21 million dollar mansion in Bel Air in January 2012, but quickly decided it needed a major overhaul. While the contractors and construction crews moved in, Jen and longtime fiance, Justin Theroux, rented a very Zen-inspired Beverly Hills mansion with a very un-Zen $40,000 a-month price tag. They shacked up there for at least a year, while they waited out the final touches on their Bel Air dream home.

        RiRi is the ultimate celebrity renter! The world-famous pop diva has rented at least four high-priced properties in her short time in the spotlight. According to reports, she’s currently shacking up in two bi-coastal rentals. The first is a penthouse in New York City, where she’s paying $39,000 a month for swanky Chinatown pad. Back on the West Coast, she left a stalker-riddled estate and moved into a massive rental atop the Hollywood Hills, where she has the views and privacy she needs. When she’s just in vacation mode, Rihanna goes the rental route as well. This past winter, she took up residence in the most expensive home in Aspen to celebrate her 26th birthday, instagramming the luxe vacation along the way. Back in her hometown island of Barbados, Rihanna rented a massive $20 million dollar oceanfront villa with her family. It’s good to be Rihanna!

          The Napa estate belonging to the late, great Robin Williams is still seeking a buyer.

          Appropriately named “Villa Sorriso,” which means “House of Smiles,” the massive estate was owned by a man who brought smiles to the face of millions of people in his lifetime, via his iconic roles in “Mork & Mindy,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Good Will Hunting,” and others.

          Listed for $29,900,000, Villa Sorriso is situated atop the Mayacamas Mountains between the world-famous Napa and Sonoma Valleys,  on approximately 653 acres. The property borders Sugarloaf Ridge Park, allowing access to thousands of adjoining acres.

          The main residence was built in 2003 from Portuguese limestone, and includes 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 5 half baths, a library, theatre, family room, elevator, climate controlled cellars for wine/art, 3 safe rooms and smart house technology.

          Exterior features include a private tower and bridge, 65-foot infinity pool, manicured lawns and sculpture gardens.

          Villa Sorriso is located at the end of a road, making it easily accessible, yet private. For those seeking a getaway, the home is close to Yountville and a very quick helicopter ride from Napa’s private airport.

          Williams first attempted to sell the estate for $35 million in 2012.

            Reese Witherspoon Buys A Stately Nashville Fixer-Upper

            Reese Witherspoon is taking on a project!

            The ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ actress just bought a second home in Nashville, paying $1,950,000 for an amazing, stately mansion that’s in a sad state of disrepair.

            Described as a “once in a generation opportunity,’ the home is a stately 1930’s era home on massive 6.5 acre Oak Hill lot that’s in need of some major, major TLC. The home, as it stands now, has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 3,855 square feet.

            Reese and Jim have some serious love for Tennessee. After all, they named their young son after the state. With a son named “Tennesee,” it’s no surprise that the showbiz duo are doubling down there. Reese already owns one Nashville mansion, which she picked up for $760,000 in 2005. She grew up in Nashville, and her parents still live nearby. Although she’s been a long time California girl, times, they may be a-changin’.

            Currently, Reese and Jim have their Brentwood, California mansion for-sale as an off-market deal. They’re asking $14 million for their 5-bedroom estate and an adjacent lot. They also used to own a place in Ojai, CA, but that sold at a loss late last year.

            This new Nashville buy isn’t really a shocking purchase for “America’s Sweetheart.” Reese has always had an affinity for revamping homes and making them her own. She completely redid her ranch in Ojai, CA when she first bought it, and all of her other homes have been upgraded and renovated to perfection.

            Her new Nashville mansion has great “bones” and oodles of charm. There’s a masculine wood-paneled library, amazing hardwood floors throughout, and traditional details that give the home a distinguished feel. Each window looks out upon a picturesque brook and sweeping views of the sprawling grounds.

              ‘The 70’s Show’ actor Topher Grace has just put his Hollywood Hills hideaway on the market for $1,895,000.

              Topher bought the place in January 2006 for $1,275,000 from actor Jesse Metcalf.

              Tiny by Hollywood standards, the home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1,799 square feet.

              Described by his real estate agent as a “picturesque pied de terre,” the home sits on a private cul-de-sac off of Sunset Plaza. What it lacks in square footage and space, it makes up for in location, location, location!

              The single-level home has a great open floor plan, with hardwood floors and soft, natural night throughout.

              The gourmet kitchen has custom cabinetry, and the master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, plus a sumptuous bath.

              Tophers’s tiny pad has a seamless indoor/outdoor flow to a sparkling pool and  several lush outdoor spaces for lounging and entertaining.

              Topher joins his other ‘That 70’s Show’ cast mates, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, on the real estate merry-go-round. Ashton just sold his bachelor pad for $9.92 million, and Mila is asking nearly $4 million for her single gal spread.

                Justin Bieber has a new crib – and it’s perfect for the young bad boy.

                Pop’s young prince has decamped from his rented Beverly Hills condos and moved into a sprawling Hollywood Hills home that has its own night club!

                Justin is taking advice from Miley Cyrus, who, on a appearance on Jay Leno, told him “you have a lot of money…buy a house with a night club.” Done and done.

                Seems like sound advice for Justin, who seems to run into trouble every time he leaves the house.

                Now Justin can party his heart out – at home. His new rental has an 80-foot long disco with bar, lights and sound system. If that wasn’t enough, the place has a fully-equipped gym, pool table, ping pong enclave and three bars. Three bars.

                The 16,000 square foot all-glass contemporary estate has 10 bedrooms, including two master suites with huge closets. The in-home movie theater has a 160-inch screen (where Justin was just spotted watching a movie with manager Scooter Braun and friends).

                A floating glass staircase (or elevator) takes Justin and his entourage from one level to the next. Outside, an amazing 80-foot-long pool has a four-foot high blue glass tile rendition of the famed Hollywood sign running the length of the pool.

                The house has a huge outdoor deck and three yards all suspended into the amazing city view.

                Justin famously clashed with his neighbors in Calabasas, finally selling the place to Khloe Kardashian and renting in Atlanta for a hot minute. He was back on the West Coast again, this time shacking up in two condo units in a brand new Beverly Hills building. He also pissed off every neighbor in that building, before moving to this glass party palace in the Hollywood Hills.

                The home is owned by developer Danny Fitzgerald, and was listed briefly for $8.9 million.

                  $21,500,000

                  Adding fuel to the fire of those divorce rumors, the New York Post is reporting that Beyonce was spotted touring a $21.5 million-dollar condo in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

                  A new home for her, Jay-Z and baby Blue Ivy? Not likely, since this 4,054 square-foot pad is nearly half the size of the luxurious TriBeCa condo the Carter family currently calls home.

                  According to the Post’s source, “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Additional sources also said that the fact that Jay-Z wasn’t there was a big red flag, since he “has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals.” 

                  While many people say it’s just a matter of when, not if, they will split, Beyonce may be getting her ducks in a row and finding a new home.

                  If it’s true and they’re no longer “Crazy in Love,” this New York City condo is definitely fit for “Queen B.”

                  The magnificent Penthouse offers unequalled panoramic city and river vistas on one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. Every inch of this immaculate duplex reflects superior craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail and ultra-refined finishes at every turn, with a backdrop of stretching views of the Empire State Building, Highline, Hudson River and more from floor-to-ceiling windows.

                  The custom-designed living space is complemented by a private 642 square foot, north-facing terrace that showcases stretching city sights. Completely renovated to perfection, this large, light-bathed 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath duplex penthouse was made for entertaining. With huge formal areas and the massive outdoor terrace accessible from both the grand living room and library, there is a  seamless flow for intimate barbecues and large-scale parties.

                  A top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen faces south and west and is equipped with a breakfast area, white Cararra marble, Arclinea Italian cabinetry, Boffi fixtures, premium appliances including a Viking range with a vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

                  Other highlights of this enviable residence are 9’2″ ceiling heights, charcoal granite and teak floors, teak wall panels and Venetian plaster walls, custom electronic shades throughout, stone tiles in the spa-like baths, a custom-designed staircase with an intricate bronze railing, and spacious laundry room with a full-size Miele washer and dryer, teak and stainless steel cabinetry.

                  The sprawling master bedroom retreat is the piece de resistance with its spectacular views, massive teak closet providing loads of luxury storage, and opulent master bath with ribbed marble walls and Boffi fixtures.

                  Perfect for Beyonce, the luxurious building has a 24-hour doorman and sits in a prized location, just minutes from West Chelsea’s best spots.

                    Ashton Kutcher just sold his sleek Hollywood Hills bachelor pad for $9,925,000!

                    The ‘Two and a Half Men” actor bought the sleek hills pad two years ago, paying $8.455 million. In May 2014, it was rumored that he was quietly shopping it for $12,000,000.

                    In 2012, he rented the pad for a rumored $50,000 a month for a couple months before officially making it his. At the time that he bought, he was recently separated from now-ex-wife Demi Moore and needed a new place to call home. Shortly after moving into his bachelor pad, Kutcher stepped out with former ‘That 70′s Show” co-star Mila Kunis. Two years later, the duo are engaged and expecting their first child – a girl!

                    With all those life changes, Kutcher’s spectacular bachelor pad doesn’t exactly scream “family home.” It was rumored that Mila wanted to bring up baby in a more family-friendly home, and those rumors were confirmed when the duo snapped up a very family-friendly place in Beverly Hills for about $10,000,000.

                    With a new family home and a baby due any minute, it was time for Kutcher to part with his former party pad. In the same vein,  Mila just listed her single girl spread nearby, asking $3,995,000.

                    With their bachelor and bachelorette pad sell-offs in full swing, Kutcher’s glassy house had to go. The three-story home overlooks Lake Hollywood with fully retractable walls of glass. The floating dining room area opens to stunning views. The home also has a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, private screening room, bar area and gym/massage room. The striking master suite boasts ample use of glass and wood, magnificent views and a spa-like master bath. A variety of outdoor spaces include enclosed gardens, outdoor rooms, infinity pool, cantilevered decks and an open sky terrace.

                    Fun Fact: Justin Bieber, who recently sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian, was very, very interested in purchasing the home in 2011, but Ashton swooped in and bought it out from under him. The buyer remains unknown, but with Bieber’s current issues with his neighbors, this could have been a good buy for the young bad boy.

                      NBA Baller Chris Bosh is showing us the literal meaning of the term now that his Pacific Palisades home has hit the market for $14,500,000, as first reported by the LA Times

                      The NBA star, who currently dribbles for the Miami Heat, is away from this home so frequently that it’s time to finally give it up. He’d hung on to it for a few years and had it for rent for $45,000 a month. With a life in gorgeous Miami and a $12,333,000 mansion on the water there, Chris and his wife no longer needed the to-die-for So Cal spread.

                      Chris’ for-sale place on the West Coast is a real palace in the Palisades. For a mere $14.5 million, you’ll get a wonderful ocean-view gated estate on approximately an acre-and-a-half. Secluded at the top of a knoll, the home has spectacular unobstructed views of the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and mountains. The outdoor area is punctuated with a resort-style infinity pool with swim up bar and lounge areas. A huge outdoor eating area features a full outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. There’s even an outdoor shower and large flat grassy area, perfect for extravagant entertaining. Inside, you’ll find a movie theatre, bar area with billiards, basically a total sports bar within the house.

                      The home is perfect for the CEO-type, with it’s ultra-luxurious office/library. Last but not least, the home has a huge master suite with dual master baths with huge walk-in closets and large ocean view balcony with spa off the master.

                      For those who need a little extra help around the (giant) house, the home comes with fully-equipped staff quarters.

                      Baller!
