    Reality TV superstar who left The Hills and parlayed fame into legitimate business ventures

    3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,233 square foot condo



    Lauren Conrad of “The Hills” fame has bought and sold in Los Angeles. She previously listed her (in)famous Hollywood Hills home featured on the non-defunct MTV reality show of the same name for $2,250,000. Lauren purchased the home for a very star-like sum of $2,360,000 in early 2008. When it went up for sale, she was already looking at a $100k+ loss. After a price chop that brought the home down to a $2,100,000 list price, it is finally under contract for a still TBD sum.

    Now that THAT particular Hills home is about to become as passé as her friendship with Heidi Montag, Lauren has bought a new bachelorette pad. On March 29, 2012, Conrad plunked down $1,350,000 for a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,233 square foot condo in another set of Los Angeles “Hills” – Beverly Hills to be exact.

    Conrad’s new home in the 90210 has a dramatic two-story living room, with the master and second bedroom on the main level. A “reverse floor plan,” upstairs has a large family room, an additional bedroom and deck that is yard-size. Her new home is described as a “one-of-a-kind penthouse” in a building with 24 hour security, a gorgeous shared pool, deck, entertainment room and gym.

    If Conrad’s stylish former home is any indicator, she likely has a decorator working around-the-clock to glam out her new pad!

        Are Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking for a new place to shack up together in New York City? The answer is yes, according to the New York Daily News. It has been reported that the genetically-blessed British couple checked out a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplex at 136 Baxter Street in SoHo last week. The apartment, which spans two entire floors, is currently for sale for $4,495,000.

        The duplex penthouse offers ultimate comfort and privacy with 2 entrances, a wood-burning fireplace, 10-foot timber beamed ceilings, red oak floors, original cast iron columns, exposed brick walls, and full length steel frame windows and over 600 square-feet of private outdoor space off the living room. The kitchen features Valcucine, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances with custom-designed limestone and hand-cut glass tile baths. The unit also has private storage.

        The New York Daily News’ inside source says the actor and the model stayed at the condo for “over 30 minutes and Statham even went up and down the stairs repeatedly to check out the view.” Statham was reportedly enamored with the condo’s privacy and bright, sun-soaked rooms. Whether he was enamored enough to make an offer is something we’ll just have to wait and see.

        Statham also purchased a West Coast abode from Ben Stiller last summer for $11,450,000.

            2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 3,000 square feet



            NBA baller Amar’e Stoudamire is selling his 8th floor Phoenix condo. Like the NBA lockout, the sale of this particular property has been difficult to sort out for the 6’10 New York Knicks star.  The Real Estalker has the full run-down of Stoudamire’s full real estate portfolio drama, but this particular Phoenix property has it’s own interesting backstory.

            The condo was first listed on the open market in February 2008, and was subsequently placed on and pulled off the market multiple times in the succeeding years. Not one to give up, Stoudamire put the property back on the market in June of this year, with an asking price of $1,375,000. The NBA player paid $1,775,000 for the condo, so even if he can get a slam-dunk buyer for the entire listing price, he still stands to lose $400,000.

            For a buyer that wants to take the condo off Stoudamire’s hands, they’ll be getting a luxury 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, 3,000 square feet unit on the 8th floor of the Esplanade Place. Built in 2003 and purchased by Stoudamire in 2004, the unit is upgraded with top-of-the-line finishes. It has a large, open great room and flowing floor plan. A gourmet, eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and granite countertops. The huge master bedroom has a sitting room and mountain views. A guest suite has a separate entrance for complete privacy. Esplanade Place is a full-service, luxury building that features a roof-top swimming pool, a clubroom/party room with catering kitchen to host large parties, a conference room and round-the-clock security.

                If you’ve recently caught NBC’s new Monday night series “The Playboy Club” you might have fallen in love with the lavish, sexy and mischievous ambiance that encompassed Chicago’s hottest nightclub in the 1960’s. The show, which centers on the first ever Playboy Club in the U.S., gives us a peak at the exclusive fun and furry Playboy bunnies that only those lucky “keyholders” could relish in.

                However, anyone who’s anyone must know the fun definitely did not start or stop at The Playboy Club. In those days, only a few privileged socialites were invited to the real party, just a hop, skip and a jump away at Hugh Hefner’s home – the original Playboy Mansion. While Hef’s current home in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles is known as “The Playboy Mansion,” there was another infamous home of his that came before.

                While you’ll have to use your imagination when it comes to what actually went on within the walls of this notorious building, you now have your chance to actually own and live within the memories of the once-famous abode. More than a decade after Mr. Hefner left Chicago for Los Angeles, this 72-room brick building was renovated and converted into luxury condominiums. Flash forward to 2011, a full-floor, 7,874 square foot condo is for sale for $6,700,000.

                The 4-bedroom, 5-bath single-family residence comes with lavish rooms of generous proportion with 4 fireplaces throughout, an elevator opening up to the foyer, an attached terrace and exquisite gourmet kitchen. The living room was originally the mansion’s 52 x 27, 20-foot high celiling ballroom and still contains the building’s original paneling.

                Now, if only walls could talk! Plush smoking jacket not included.
