    Songstress Nicole Scherzinger, best known as the frontwoman of the girl group ‘The Pussycat Dolls,’ is selling the Hollywood Hills home she bought from Daisy Fuentes in 2006.

    Scherzinger was at the top of her game a few years back, when the Pussycat Dolls were tearing up the charts. Since her days as a ‘Doll,’ she’s had some solo hits and a gig at the judges table on both the US and UK versions of the ‘X Factor.’

    Reports have emerged that she just quit her X factor gig, but things are about to get really busy and exciting for Nicole. Just this week, reports emerged that she and boyfriend, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, were engaged!

    On the home front back in Hollywood, Nicole is selling the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 4,014 square foot Hills estate she bought from Daisy Fuentes for $2,165,000. Now listed for $2,349,000, Scherzinger is likely to eek out a small profit if she can get full asking price for the home.

    The gorgeous Mediterranean-style home sits on a 1.5-acre knoll and has no immediate neighbors – perfect for a celebrity that craves a little time out of the spotlight.

    There are expansive views from every room, many outdoor living spaces and plenty of space for a potential pool.

    Inside, Nicole’s home has a 2-story living room with soaring ceilings, a spacious dining room, 3 gas/wood burning fireplaces, and a gourmet eat-in kitchen/great room combination with granite counters, stainless appliances and oodles of room for entertaining.

    The generous master suite features an over-sized closet, ample storage and a stunning marble bath with separate stall shower. Guest bedrooms are located upstairs, one has a large outdoor terrace. Downstairs is an additional bedroom, which could also be used as an office.

    This home offers outstanding seclusion and serenity within a star-studded neighborhood. Perhaps Nicole will keep the streak alive and sell to another celeb!

      Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen just made an stunning offseason move – they listed their incredible custom-built Los Angeles estate for $50,000,000!, as first reported by TMZ.

      The genetically-gifted duo spent years waiting out the completion of this custom estate, making it’s ‘for-sale’ status a bit shocking. They unveiled the home’s beautiful interiors in the October 2013 issue of Architectural Digest and Tom said, “We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where we can enjoy being together.”

      While Brady is based in New England for much of the year, Gisele’s work takes her to Los Angeles frequently, and many assumed that the two would settle in this estate when Brady retired from football and awaited his Hall of Fame appointment.

      Alas, that won’t be happening.

      While we can’t know for sure why they’re selling, we can assume that the sale of the estate is a money-making move by the multi-millionaire couple, who picked up the vacant lot for $11,750,000 in August 2008 and sunk millions into its construction, which was completed in 2011.

      Tom and Gisele’s for-sale estate is undeniably incredible Richard Landry-designed European country estate on almost 4 acres. The French Chataeu-style home is covered in imported limestone, and every single element of the design and materials are top-notch.

      Offering stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and incredible canyon views, the home has 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms spread out over 13,890 square feet, all overlooking the most incredible infinity pool and spectacular lawns, gardens, and pathways.

      Despite selling this home, they won’t be without adequate shelter. In October 2013, Tom and Gisele spent $14 million on a chic NYC condo, and they’re also building a comparable estate in the Boston area.

      Kurt Rappaport and and Stephan Shapiro of the Westside Agency are representing the listing.

        ‘Guy’s guy’ actor Vince Vaughn just helped out former USC football coach Lane Kiffin by taking his high-priced Manhattan Beach mansion off his hands, paying $6,447,000 for the place.

        First reported by the Los Angeles Times, the ‘Wedding Crashers’ and ‘Old School’ actor was identified as the buyer for Kiffin’s 7,308 square foot Craftman-style home, which sold on February 28, 2014. The pad has 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a world-class backyard that features a large salt water pool and spa, fire pit, guest house, outdoor kitchen, large, gated dog run and mature landscaping.

        Inside the home, Vaughn will now be able to stare at soaring ceilings, a country-style kitchen with commercial-grade appliances and a large family room.

        Kiffin was fired as head coach of the USC football program in September 2013, after the season started with an abysmal 3-2 record. A brutal blowout loss at Arizona State sealed his fate. He has since moved on to a role as offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

        As for Vaughn, things couldn’t be better. He and his wife recently welcomed their second child and have been on a bit of a real estate roll as of late. Less than a year ago, they spent nearly $4 million for a home in La Canada Flintridge, and in July 2013, he put his Chicago apartment up for rent for $9,500 a month.

          Zac Efron is shedding the last piece of his former life as a young Hollywood bad boy.

          After two stints in rehab, the reformed actor is selling his former Hollywood Hills party pad for $2,849,000. Following a tumultuous time period in his life, where he privately struggled with addiction, Efron is seeking more Zen in his life, and he’s starting at home. He moved out of this place after buying a ‘majestic Zen Contemporary’ property in Los Feliz in October 2013,  paying close to $4 million for the new home. The fresh start it provided him? Priceless!

          Now that Efron’s out of the house that was the backdrop to a darker period in his life, he’s selling the place.

          The home is a gorgeous gem and steeped in history. With 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, Efron’s former home embodies the ideal California lifestyle in a primo location.
          Whole walls of glass open in every room for seamless indoor/outdoor flow and beautiful natural light. Situated up a gated drive on a flat lush lot, this home features heated concrete floors, a unique infinity pool with an ozone system and an open kitchen with a Wolf range and sub-zero appliances.

          Offering coveted seclusion and style, the home is the perfect celebrity hideaway.

          Efron paid $2,350,000 for the home on December 3, 2008

            Kelly Osbourne, the purple-haired progeny of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has just sold her charming West Hollywood home for $1,300,000.

            After listing the home for $1,349,000 in February 2014, Osbourne found a buyer willing to pay just below asking price.

            It’s been a year of big changes for Osbourne, and selling this home was part of her quest for a fresh start. The E! Fashion Police co-host just split from fiance Matthew Mosshart in January 2014, after meeting at Kate Moss’ 2011 wedding and dating for two years.

            Now that Kelly’s newly single and in the midst of a booming career, she’s parted ways with the 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,250 square foot home she purchased on February 16, 2005. Property records show she paid $1,195,000 for the place 9 years ago.

            Designed by Robert Byrd in 1952, Kelly’s former home is beautifully detailed throughout and completed updated. With oodles of windows, the home has wonderful light and views.

            The kitchen is outfitted in the best appliances on the market and the adjacent living area and separate den open onto a lush private garden with chic entertaining areas.

            Reports from summer 2013 say that Kelly hasn’t lived at this home in many months. She reportedly moved into Lindsey Lohan’s former Beverly Hills rental in April 2013, paying $10,400 a month!

            Jonah Wilson of Hilton Hyland was Kelly’s listing agent and the deal closed on March 11, 2014.

              Tennis ace Pete Sampras and his gorgeous wife, actress Bridgette Wilson, just dropped $5,996,000 for the Bel Air estate recently owned by actor Albert Brooks.

              Located on over 2 acres, featuring mature trees and lots of privacy, the property is accessed via a long, gated private drive. The 5,100 square foot home is entered through the dramatic living room, which features 20 foot high wood-paneled ceilings, skylights and massive glass walls that blur the distinction between the spacious home and the lush property surrounding it. The family-friendly home has 3 bedrooms (and a maid’s), and the master suite has its own sitting room and his-and-her baths and closets.

              Outside there is a tennis court (naturally!) and a large grassy area that could play host to any number of events, either children’s birthday parties or warm summer evening cocktail parties. The highlight of the spacious yard is the pristine infinity pool that looks out over a perfect Los Angeles view.

              Pete and Bridgette’s new home has a long and storied show business history, having been owned by Merv Griffin before being purchased by Brooks for $3,650,000 in 1992. Albert Brooks sold the home in 2012 for $6,275,000, after listing it for nearly $7 million. The new owners didn’t hold on to it for very long, and sold it to the Sampras family at a loss.

              Pete, Bridgette and their two children most recently resided in a $5.6M mansion at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. They also owned a modern Thousand Oaks, CA estate that they were asking $19.95 million for. That estate sold in November 2013 for an undisclosed price.

              In their most recent real estate deal, Mauricio Umansky of The Agency represented the listing and Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson & Associates was Sampras and Wilson’s agent.

                Property records show that the ‘Beautiful Soul’ singer spent $1,965,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,635 square foot home in the Hills with a sleek architectural design and spacious open floor plan.

                Inside the home, huge windows and skylights allow natural light to pour into the gallery-like interior and glass doors open to a private pool and garden. The stylish master suite has a massive walk-in closet and a bathroom that is a work of art unto itself. A chic open kitchen has high-end appliances and a super functional design. Other amenities include garage parking for four cars (a rarity in the Hollywood Hills!), a temperature controlled wine room, an in-home sauna, and beautiful backyard with salt water pool, spa and illuminated garden area.

                McCartney’s last foray in the real estate world was a doozie. In May 2010, he sold a 2-bedroom Los Angeles home he owned for a $177,000 loss!

                  Khloe Kardashian just bought Justin Bieber’s Calabasas mansion!

                  According to an exclusive report from US Weekly, multiple sources have confirmed that the youngest Kardashian sister has just spent $7.2M on Bieber’s home in The Oaks, a gated community in Calabasas.

                  Khloe recently sold the Tarzana, CA home she shared with estranged husband Lamar Odom to ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress Kaley Cuoco and her new husband Ryan Sweeting. After many months of marital turmoil and a divorce filing in December 2013, Khloe was ready to move on from her former life with Lamar and into some brand new digs.

                  Before Khloe came a-knocking with some serious cash, Bieber purchased the sprawling home in 2012. He quietly (and secretly) put it on the market after some highly publicized and heated run-ins with his neighbors, including an egging incident that resulted in a police raid and a serious felony vandalism investigation.

                  Bieber has given up on the sleepy community of Calabasas and moved into a rented mansion in Atlanta, but the Kardashians are doubling down. Mom Kris Jenner lives in nearby Hidden Hills with sisters Kendall and Kylie, and older sister Kourtney recently upgraded her Calabasas living situation by buying retired NFL star Keyshawn Johnson’s home, which is just a couple doors down from the home Khloe just bought from the Biebs.

                  Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick also have their former Calabasas mansion on the market with a $3,999,000 price tag.

                    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.

                      Outside, the home has covered loggias for escaping the Florida sun, as well as a lounge pool and plenty of outdoor space for entertaining and enjoying the incredible weather. Sprawling lawns surround the property, and just beyond the green lawns lies 93 feet of beachfront sand and surf, which can be accessed via a private dune walkway.

                      First reported by the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Perricone paid $10 million for the home in 2009, which had been built on spec in 2007. He bought the home fully furnished in a navy and white pallet, and he is now offering the home fully furnished as well, since he doesn’t “want to be bothered with moving furniture.” Anyone who has ever moved houses can understand the feeling!

                      The WSJ also reported that Dr. Perricone said he is selling because his business has kept him busier than expected, leaving him little time to visit the house.”
