    Jake Gyllenhaal is selling his gated Hollywood Hills house for $3.5 million!

    Gyllenhaal has morphed into an A-list actor during his tenure in Hollywood, and off-screen, he’s a very popular choice for a semi-temporary boyfriend by many actresses and singers, including Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Rachel McAdams and others.

    When he’s not stepping out with the hottest young thing in Hollywood, Gyllenhaal holes up in this gated compound on almost two acres of land. Perfect for staying out of the limelight, the home is located down a private drive and has sensational panoramic views. Insiders even say they’re some of the best in L.A.

    The lushly-landscaped, estate-size lot has trails and a large, sprawling grassy yard.

    The one-story home itself may appeal to the geriatric set, but what it lacks in modern amenities and of-the-moment trends, it makes up for with charm, space and light throughout.

    The home also embraces the sprawling acreage and opens up to a large swimming pool and multiple entertaining areas.

    The Real Estalker first reported the listing and hinted that Jake may have been renting the place out for the last couple years and living elsewhere. He put down $2.5 million for the home in 2005 and has recently been spotted house-hunting in New York.

    Denny Kagasoff of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services holds the listing.

      Oh No, Dawg!  Former ‘American Idol’ judge, Randy Jackson, just lost a chunk of change on the sale of his Tarzana, CA home.

      Purchased by the Grammy-winning super-producer in May 2005 for $2,725,000, Jackson just sold the 5 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 5,878 square foot place for $1,900,000. That’s $825,000 less than what Jackson paid when he bought it. Ouch.

      He listed the gated estate for $2.199 million in June 2014, price chopped it to $1.99M, and then quickly found a buyer…but not one willing to pay full asking on the gated estate in the El Caballero area of Tarzana.

      The buyer got a bargain basement price on a large custom-built estate with a newer gourmet kitchen with high-end amenities, including granite countertops, stainless steel Viking appliances, a SubZero fridge/freezer.

      In the master suite, Jackson’s house had his/her bathrooms, with direct access to the spa. All five bedroom are over-sized, with their own en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.

      The exterior features a sparkling swimming pool and manicured, lush green lawn. Beyond the pool, the property also featured a stand-alone guest house with full kitchen and central air and heat.

      Kenneth Margolis of Soetheby’s International Realty was Jackson’s agent and Alan Parness of Rodeo Realty represented the buyer.

        Less than a month after becoming Mrs. Kennedy when she married Robert F. Kennedy Jr., actress Cheryl Hines has sold her estate in Bel Air for $3,105,000.

        Reminiscent of the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, Cheryl’s just-sold home is a Cape Cod-style stunner in upper Bel Air. The home has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3,756 square feet of living space. A formal entry gives way to an expansive one story home centered around a grassy backyard with sparkling pool and large brick patio.

        The center of the home features a great room with exposed wood-beamed ceilings and custom shelving and a den. Nearby, the kitchen has a large center-island with Viking appliances, abundant storage space, a walk-in pantry and built-in breakfast area. The formal dining room has wood floors and overlooks the grassy front yard.

        The master suite features a fireplace, beautiful bathroom with spa tub and large walk-in closet. French doors lead to the backyard, with coveted views of the canyon, city and ocean.

        The newest Mrs. Kennedy made a tidy profit on the deal. She bought the home for $2,350,000 in August 2010, and sold it for $755,000 more, just four years later! Now, that’s a great wedding present from the real estate market!

          ‘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.

            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 stunning interiors have hand-distressed wood floors and refurbished one-of-a-kind antique lighting. The main floor is comprised of a spacious living room and family room with floor-to-ceiling French doors that open to expansive covered balconies and the city below, perfect for al fresco dining and additional living space. The dining and breakfast room flow into a beautifully landscaped courtyard.

              Megan and Brian bought the home on December 18, 2009 for $2,942,500 and went on to furnished it in a funky, yet chic, vibe.

                According to gossip juggernaut TMZ, Kim and Kanye are in escrow on a gorgeous Hidden Hills, CA mansion.

                For the bargain price of $20 million, Kimye and Baby North will finally be moving out from mom Kris Jenner’s massive estate, but they won’t be going far. Mr and Mrs. West’s new digs are just 5 minutes away from the rest of the Kardashian clan.

                Brand new, gated and completely private, Kim and Kayne’s reported new home is a French Country-style home on 3 acres, with a vineyard.

                Their spectacular new estate has a stunning master suite with dual baths, stone fireplace, skylights, enormous custom closets (perfect for the fashionista duo), a mirrored dressing area, gym, steam shower, sauna, and a private patio with spa.

                      Jokester Adam Carolla has a serious proposition for you: buy his gated Malibu home for $4,499,000.

                      Located in the coveted Malibu area of Point Dume, Carolla’s newly-listed pad sits on one of the largest and flattest lots in Point Dume.

                      Just as you’d expect from a Malibu home, Carolla’s place has expansive ocean views with incredible, lush landscaping. The house itself is ho-hum by Hollywood standards, but it seems to suit the understated Carolla just fine. The main house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, with a 2 car garage.

                      A detached guest house includes a living room/kitchen combo, separate bedroom and full bath.

                      A beautiful pool and spa rounds out the very private and completely gated estate.

                      Property records show that Carolla paid $3.6 million for the home in 2007.

                      A bit of a property mogul, Carolla owns two additional LA-area homes. One in the Lake Hollywood area has its own in-house dive bar! He paid $1.63 million for it in 2003, and recently rented out it out for $13,500 a month. He also owns another spread in La Canada Flintridge, CA, that he bought for $2,965,000 in July 2013.
