        The youngest Jonas Brother is making big moves!

        21-year-old Nick Jonas, 1/3 of the now-defunct musical group The Jonas Brothers, has just splashed out $3.2 million on a secluded spanish-style compound above the Sunset Strip, as first reported by The Real Estalker.

        Set behind large gates on a private cul-de-sac, Jonas’ new home has panoramic views from Downtown to the ocean. Set on a promontory, this authentic Villa has both old world charm and every modern amenity. Recently renovated to capture seamless indoor/outdoor living, all public rooms open to the pool and  grounds. A dramatic living room with fireplace and spacious dining room are ideal for entertaining. The master suite has high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, and an adjacent master bath includes a steam shower and a large walk-in closet. Features of Jonas’ new estate include a gourmet kitchen, family room, and state-of-the-art security. An outdoor fireplace with seating and full guest house make this the perfect home for the youngest Jonas.

        Nick Jonas bought this home from Mike Myer’s ex-wife, Robin Ruzan, who had been trying to sell the home for two years.

        “The Jonas Brothers” crushed fans across the world with the news that they were disbanding after many years of making music together. They are each pursing individual projects, both personally and professionally. Nick Jonas had a small role on “Smash,” and also appeared this fall on “Hawaii Five-O.” When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Brother Kevin Jonas is expecting his first child (a girl!) with wife Danielle, and the duo are also selling their New Jersey mansion for $2.2 million. Joe Jonas hasn’t announced any major plans for the future.

        Her Madgesty has sold her massive castle in Beverly Hills!

        Madonna, the Queen of Pop, who publicly listed her Beverly  Hills estate for $22.5 million in January 2013, has snagged a mystery buyer who paid a reported $20 million.

        Before it came (and lingered on the market), Madonna’s posh pad had long been rumored to be a “pocket listing”–not officially on the MLS, but still for sale–for $28 million, but since the price wasn’t in ‘Vogue’ with buyers, Madonna was forced to try the public market at a lower price.

        After about 10 months on the market, Madonna has finally sold for $20 million – a nice profit of $8 million dollars more than the $12 million she paid in June 2003, when she bought the home from actress Sela Ward. ‘Take a Bow,’ Madonna – nice work!

        The whole time the home was on the market, only a single image showing the home’s ‘Borderline’ was available, so we never got to peep the interiors. We do know Madonna’s just-sold property starts with a 500-foot, gated, tree-lined drive that leads to an acre and a quarter of lushly landscaped grounds, offering total privacy for residents to ‘express themselves.’

        The recently remodeled house has all the finest details and amenities: nine bedrooms, two living/reception rooms, a two-story dining room, junior dining room, large kitchen with breakfast room/den, and a full size screening room and theater. As if that weren’t enough space to ‘Cherish,’ the property also has two offices, assistants offices, a gym, staff rooms, two guest houses, a north/south tennis court, and a resort-size pool. No detail was overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the house meticulously. It’s clear, by taking one look at her former home, that Madonna is a ‘Material Girl.’

        Madonna is no property ‘Virgin,’ as she also has homes in New York and London.

          After a second stint in rehab this summer, grown up teen hearthrob Zac Efron is seeking more Zen in his life, and he’s starting at home.

          Efron is currently under contract on a ‘majestic Zen Contemporary property’ in the Los Feliz area of LA. According to TMZ, the actor has found a place where he can get away from it all, and it will only cost him $3.995 million.

          Perfectly private, Efron’s new estate is set behind gates and situated down a long, private driveway. With spectacular city and ocean views from every room, the property has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in the main residence and a 1 bedroom, 1 bath separate guesthouse. Wood detailing and wide expanses of glass create a seamless blend of tranquility and peace…just what a post-rehab Efron needs right about now.

          Additional amenities include an open floor plan for entertaining, chef’s kitchen, spa-like master bath, gym, pool/spa with waterfall, wine cellar, full security and state-of-the-art electronic capabilities.

          While Efron waits for the ink to dry on this contract and for the deal to officially close, he can rest easy in his other Los Angeles mansion. He paid  $2,350,000 on Dec. 3, 2008 for a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,316 square foot home on Woodrow Wilson Drive in the Hollywood Hills.

                    Actress Julia Roberts and her husband Danny Moder have reportedly listed their stunning Kauai mansion for $17 million.

                    According to The Real Estalker, America’s sweetheart and her under-the-radar husband have swapped one stunning Hawaiian property for another and are now selling their former estate and trading up. Property records and media reports suggest that in November 2011, Roberts and Moder spent $13,375,000 to acquire the historic 3-acre beachfront Faye Estate on Hanalei Bay. With that new property in their portfolio, they are now selling another home nearby that they acquired in June 2009 for about $10 million.

                    Tucked away on the North Shore of Kauai, Roberts and Moder’s newly listed Hawaiian home is a ranch-style property nestled in the middle of paradise. Property records show that the newly remodeled home at 5-8192 Kuhio Hwy, Haena, HI spans three contiguous parcels that total 8.92 acres, with 400 feet of gorgeous ocean frontage.

                    The residence has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and over 1,800 square feet of living space. A separate guest cottage has another bedroom and bathroom.

                    Aside from seasonal swimming, surfing, windsurfing, and snorkeling activities in the nearby ocean waters, the home has large grassy lawns.
