        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.

          Report: Courteney Cox & David Arquette Snag Buyer For Beverly Hills Architectural Gem

          Price

          $18,000,000

          According to reports, Courteney Cox and her ex-husband, David Arquette, have finally found a buyer for their under-the-radar Beverly Hills architectural estate

          Listed for $19.5M, the Real Estalker is reporting that the Mid-Century style home is in escrow for about $18 million bucks, and the rumored buyer is successful producer, songwriter and Grammy-winner, Dr. Luke. He’s also the same celebrity real estate aficionado that snapped up Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne‘s former Malibu beach house for $7.925M in 2012. 

          Timing is right for Courteney and David to make a deal on the estate they own together. Although they still amicably co-parent their 10-year-old daughter Coco together, the duo have been officially divorced since May 2013. Although the two remain “Friends,” Courteney just announced her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, and David has since moved on to girlfriend Christina Mclarty, with whom he has a young son named Charlie West

          After they separated, the estate spent two years unofficially on the market as a “pocket listing.” With no takers, the A. Quincy Jones-designed Beverly Hills estate hit the MLS in September 2013 for $19,500,000.

          The Wallace Ridge estate is nestled in the uber-private and high-priced gated Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills. In June 2004, in their happily married days, Cox and Arquette purchased the trophy property for $5,450,000. They had the single-story home completely restored by renowned architect Cory Buckner in 2006.

          The in-escrow estate is an approximately 5,500 square foot home on one level, with 4 bedrooms (plus maids rooms), 5.5 bathrooms, detached office and uniquely gorgeous circular swimming pool.

            Heidi Klum Bidding Gorgeous Brentwood Estate “Auf Wiedersehen,” Asking $25 Million

            $25,000,000

            Supermodel and TV powerhouse, Heidi Klum, is saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to her stunning Brentwood estate. She just listed the 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 12,300 square foot property for $25 million. 

            According to listing details, the Italian-style villa, completed in 1999, has been given the Heidi makeover—a complete renovation that revived and refreshed a front-row oceanview estate in the premier guard-gated community in Brentwood, located off bucolic Mandeville Canyon. 

            Heidi recounts the first time she heard about the property, saying “when I first heard about this available property, I was a bit skeptical when I was told it had been empty for a long time. As a busy working mother with four young children, I was hoping to find a home that was essentially turnkey… I knew that homes that are unoccupied for any length of time do not always get the attention they need, and I wasn’t looking for a project.”

            However, the Emmy Award–winning executive producer and host of “Project Runway” and judge on “Germany’s Next Topmodel” and the top-rated “America’s Got Talent” tapped her creative skills to transform the estate into a warm family home.

            Heidi’s team of talented people worked extensively for over six months to replace every window, re-stain all the gorgeous woodwork, upgrade all the appliances and fixtures, design dream closets, build a master bath with views of the ocean and expand the garden.

            The time, energy and patience poured into the restoration paid off. Heidi says, “by the time we finished, the house was as incredible as its grounds and views. Sometimes I sit in the garden, drinking my coffee, looking at the Pacific, and really feel it is a little piece of Heaven. I think others will love the house as much as I have.”

            Set on 8.5 acres with approximately three prime acres of flat land, the grounds have an infinity-edge pool and spa, koi pond, formal rose garden, fountains, lawns, gazebos, rolling green for golf putting and driving, children’s playhouse and slide, secret gardens and hiking trails—all with unobstructed ocean views and complete privacy.

            A perfect Los Angeles escape.

              ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is looking to make a sweet real estate deal!

              Reese Witherspoon and her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, have quietly listed their sprawling Brentwood mansion for $14 million.

              Per property records and The Real Estalker, the three parcels that comprise the large estate were bought in December 2003 and December 2013 for just over $11 million, combined.

              A captivating and rare find, Witherspoon’s California Spanish-style estate is tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

              Unparalleled privacy, sprawling grounds, gorgeous gardens, richly detailed spaces, a perfect floor plan make for the ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle for any A-lister.

              Interior amenities include a double-height entry with sweeping staircase,  formal dining room with rich wood ceiling, and cozy library/den.

              A fabulous eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room open through French doors to expansive lawn, pool/spa, outdoor fireplace, sunken trampoline, children’s playground, vegetable garden and towering Eucalyptus trees.

              In total, Reese and Jim’s home has 5 bedrooms, each with private bath, including a sensational master suite with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, marble bath, two large closets, and a separate gym or office.

              Reese and her agent, David Offer, have structured the deal in two ways. The main residence is asking $10.5 million, but also available to be purchased separately is an adjacent 28,870 square foot (per assessor) parcel, which would bring the total lot size to over 1.3 acres and the total cost to $14 million.

              Reese is hoping this deal goes better than the sale of her former ranch in Ojai Reese originally had the place listed for $10 million, and price chopped it multiple times, until it finally sold for almost a million less than the $5.8 million she paid for it.

                Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox are on the move!

                The married duo welcomed their second son, Bohdi Ransom,  earlier this year and decided to make a change on the home front. They recently listed their Los Feliz mansion for $3,995,000, and bought a new place in Toluca Lake, CA, paying $3,350,000 for the 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 6,710 square foot home that was Bing Crosby’s original Carriage House.

                Property records show that they swooped up the one acre property on June 10, 2014.

                The private estate has a 100 foot curving driveway that leads you between gorgeous century old oak trees and olive trees to a contemporary ranch house.

                Remodeled in 2008, the 6,710 square foot, one-story home has exquisite architectural details.

                The main room is spacious, with exposed beams and quartz slate floors. The kitchen has an Australian opal granite island that offers seating. An adjacent formal dining room has a Brazilian cherry hardwood floor and a gorgeous nearby library has ample shelf space and an electric skylight.

                The recreation room is ideal for indoor activity – perhaps a home gym for the gorgeous duo or a play room for their boys.

                Brian and Megan’s new master suite includes a 600 square foot 2nd story loft and separate his-and-hers dressing rooms and bathrooms.

                The back yard features a saline pool and jacuzzi, and a fire pit. An added bonus, a spacious 563 square foot pool house has its own kitchen and bathroom.

                Lots of room for this growing family!

                    Fleetwood Mac rocker Lindsey Buckingham has just picked up his third home in the swank Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood, paying $6,493,000 for a 6 bedroom home in need of some serious TLC.

                    The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also owns two other high-priced homes in the same area. He paid $5.8M for one in December 2012 and $6.6M for the other, way back in December 2004.

                    While outdated by today’s standards, the property displays exquisite details and character of early 1940′s architecture. Interior features include three fireplaces, hardwood floors, crown moldings, and custom built-ins. French doors open to a sun-room that overlooks a gorgeous yard featuring a fountain, sparkling pool and scenic canyon views.

                    Property records show that the deal closed on June 10, 2014. Now that it’s theirs, this private Brentwood gem is awaiting Lindsey and wife Kristen’s magic touch to bring it up to the standards befitting a music legend.

                      Now’s your chance!

                      Mike Love, an original member of the iconic music group ‘The Beach Boys,’ has just relisted his spectacular Tuscan-style estate in Pebble Beach, CA for $5,790,000. 

                      While the home is stunning, with hard-to-part-with ocean views, Love has had a hard time finding a buyer. According to the Wall Street Journal, Love originally listed the ‘Surfer’ spread in 2009 for $7.9M. It came off the market and then remerged in June 2012, when it was seeking a buyer at a lower list price of $5.995M.

                      Built in 2003, the 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom home sits on a coveted acre of land in scenic Pebble Beach, the seaside community famous for its incredible golf course and to-die-for coastline. Expansive and sprawling over four levels, the home has an elevator, wine cellar and tasting room, a game room, a gym and a screening room. Additionally, the home has a guest apartment with a separate kitchen.

                      In 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Loves are selling the home because their children are no longer in school in Pebble Beach. “It is a lifestyle change,”  Jacqueline Love, Mike’s wife, said at the time. The couple has an obvious affinity for vacation towns, as their primary residence is in Incline Village, near world famous Lake Tahoe.

                      Steve & Noel Beutel of Sotheby’s International Realty-Rancho continue to hold the listing.
