    Always dreamed of having your own in-house dive bar? Well, you’re in luck, because comedian Adam Carolla is now leasing out his funky and unconventional Spanish-style home in Hollywood for $13,500 a month!

    Located at 3052 Lake Hollywood Drive, Carolla purchased the 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,757 square foot place on April 18, 2003 for $1,630,000.

    One of the first homes in the Lake Hollywood area, Carolla’s for-lease abode was built in 1928 and later restored with traditional Spanish-style elements, including arched doorways, leaded glass windows, hand-carved wood beams, chandeliers, tile floors and large courtyards for entertaining.

    While it may look like any other Spanish-style home in the neighborhood from the outside, inside, Carolla’s house is anything but ordinary. Downstairs, the house features a large, custom-built entertainment room, complete with a full dive bar and pool table, looking into the pool with glass-view port-holes.

    Not stopping there, the house’s custom-built garage is enormous, with room for 10 cars and a hoist. There is also private parking on the grounds for an additional 10-12 cars.

    Carolla and his wife Lynette own this high-priced property, but live full-time in nearby La Canada Flintridge, in a home they bought in the summer of 2013 for $2,965,000. Like anyone in LA who’s had any sort of financial success, the Carolla’s also have a Malibu home. They paid $3.6 million for that beach pad in 2007.

    Have $13,500 a month to drop on a party pad? Rent Adam Carolla’s house by contacting listing agent Tom Otero of Rodeo Realty.

          British bad boy actor/comedian Russell Brand has just splashed out $2.224 million on a hilltop bachelor pad.

          According to the Los Angeles Times, Brand’s new pad hilltop home was once owned by the great Laurence Olivier. The residence is 4,800 square foot, multi-story mansion high in the Hollywood Hills. Built in 1926 and designed by architect Selden Price, the home is nestled into a steep hillside and has incredible panoramic city views.

          Fully restored by the previous owner, the gothic-feeling estate has voluminous spaces and dramatic flying buttress arched ceilings and doorways. The entry level is comprised of a spacious living room, an outdoor dining terrace over-looking the canyon and city below, a formal dining room and kitchen with high-quality finishes. Down one flight of stairs, Brand’s lower level includes a master suite, 2 guest bedrooms and an office, all of which open to the incredible views. Walk down yet another level and you’ll find a state-of-the-art screening room, studio apartment with separate entrance and a sprawling outdoor deck and yard over-looking the view – perfect for entertaining!

          Brand’s new purchase is his first big real estate move after splitting from ex-wife Katy Perry. While Brand is skating into a new place in the Hills, Perry is having a heck of a time selling their former love nest, which was just price-chopped a second time, bringing the asking price to more than half a million less than what she paid for it in 2011. But don’t cry for Katy – she’s since upgraded to a $11.2 million-dollar Hollywood compound.

            The late, great Bob Hope‘s incredible Toluca Lake estate has just hit the market for the first time ever!

            The home at 10346 Moorpark St, is a former walnut orchard where Bob and Delores Hope built their dream mansion in 1939. Bob Hope died in 2003 at the age of 100 and his widow Dolores Hope died in 2011 at 102 years old.

            The walled, gated and private Toluca Lake compound consists of 4 parcels totaling 5.16 acres. The original English Traditional main home was designed by architect Robert Finkelhor and then remodeled in the 1950′s by architect John Elgin Woolf. The home is 14,876 square feet and includes an indoor pool and spa. A formal reception and foyer leads to a vast formal living room with walls of glass overlooking the grounds.

            The residence also includes an office, family room, bar, billiard room, formal dining room, family dining room and chef’s kitchen. Upstairs, you’ll find 4 bedroom suites and a remarkable master wing with his and hers bedrooms, bathrooms, closets and a shared study.

            The 5+ acre grounds feature an outdoor pool, patios, motorcourts, sprawling lawns with 1-hole golf course, pristine gardens. Also on that property is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom guesthouse and a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom staff quarters.

              Chris Rock wants to be your landlord! The actor and comedian is looking for a tenant for his Brooklyn, NY townhome and you can move right in – if you have $7,950 a month to drop on the rental.

Now, similar-sized homes in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn are selling for more than a million dollars!

              If you want to be Rock’s tenant and you got that kind of dough, you’ll be living in a limestone and brick townhouse with beautiful original details and modern amenities. The ground floor contains a two-car garage and a private apartment, ideal as guest quarters, with a large living room, a bedroom and a bathroom with a glass shower.

The top floor features a breathtaking master bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet, a master bathroom with double sinks and an oversized terrace.

              It’s clear from the listing photos that Rock and his family aren’t living full-time in this home, but they’re not too far away. They have a massive spread in the fancy schmancy town of Alpine, New Jersey, which is just a short drive from New York City.

                  SNL alum Chris Parnell, who is also known for his role as Dr. Leo Spaceman on NBC‘s Emmy Award-winning comedy series 30 Rock and his co-starring gig as Fred Shay on the ABC sitcom Suburgatory, has just purchased new home in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Property records show the actor/comedian closed on the deal on March 15, 2013 and paid $1,700,000 for a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,482 square foot home.

                  Common for the neighborhood, Parnell’s home is a 1920′s Spanish Revival home that got a modern day makeover. Prior to Parnell’s purchase, the home was majorly overhauled. The integrity of the basic structure and character of the house was maintained while the interior was expanded and reconfigured to incorporate the prior owner’s extensive library and art collection. The resulting floor plan organized all the rooms around a new central atrium with a large oculus and surround by an arcade of book shelves.

                  Outside, a drought tolerant California native landscape was designed using the existing mature trees on the property. Inside, features include: custom lighting with graphic eye controls, whole house filtration system, wood and limestone floors, kitchen and bathroom fixtures from Waterworks, Viking appliances and a 14 panel photovolactic solar system.

                  This isn’t the first home Parnell has purchased in this hip and happening Los Angeles neighborhood. He also owns another property on Silver Lake Blvd that he purchased on November 20, 2007 for $620,000. That 1,360 square-foot home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. With this new Parnell purchase, it’s likely we’ll see his older, smaller home pop up on the open market soon!

                    Funny lady Tracey Ullman has just taken on a brand new mortgage when she bought a seriously beautiful home in Los Angeles for $2,566,000! Ullman, who has been entertaining the world since the early 1980′s, gained major notoriety for roles in shows like her namesakes, “The Tracey Ullman Show” and “Tracey Takes On…,” as well as “Ally McBeal” and innumerable others.

                    Her stunning new retreat is just minutes from the famed Sunset Strip and behind a walled gated entry. The estate is a private and unassuming ‘post and beam’ architectural that comes alive through the courtyard entry. Dramatic and modern style with warm wood tones keep it cozy and inviting, yet, the two story glass windows in the living room have sweeping views from the Getty, canyons, mountains and city below – making it an undeniable showstopper estate. There are three bedrooms, including a great master with an indoor/outdoor bathroom.

                    Additionally, there is is a large great room off the kitchen, a formal dining room and a TV room and fire pit. Living spaces all flow to outdoor spaces including a huge patio. Ullman’s new house has been published in both the LA Times and California interiors and was refurbished by celebrity and White House designer Michael Smith as his personal residence.

                    While her new place is rather impressive, Ullman still owns a prime Palisades Riviera home that she bought on September 8, 1988 for $1,800,000. That home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 5,574 square feet. Three years ago, she briefly put that home up for sale for over $5 million before quickly taking it off the market.

The hilltop Los Angeles home has four-bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms spread out over 4,205 square feet.

                      The home is a private, gated 1923 Tudor home. Hardwick bought the home directly from the designer, who, according to listing information, spent 3 years renovating the home. The changes were inspired by the Florentine villa “Torre di Bellosguardo.” Sitting on a 11,500 square-foot lot, the home has landscaped grounds, stone walls and stairs leading to a terraced garden. As expected from a house in the Hollywood Hills, Hardwick’s new place has spectacular canyon and head-on panoramic Downtown-to-Long-Beach views. Inside the home, details abound, including Venetian plaster walls and hand forged wrought iron balconies throughout. The master bath has an original reglazed clawfoot tub, steam shower, dual vanities and Grohe fixtures. In the kitchen, you’ll find vaulted ceilings, marble countertops, Viking stainless appliances, 100 year old reclaimed wood cabinetry and mosaic Italian tiles. An original log cabin on ground floor now serves as a studio. The property has room for a pool too!
