      Sale Pending Sign Hanging Outside Katy Perry’s Hollywood Mansion

      Finally!

      After many months on the market, multiple price chops, and a few failed deals, it looks like Katy Perry has finally snagged a buyer for the Hollywood mansion she bought during her marriage to ex-husband Russell Brand.

      Purchased by the songstress on June 24, 2011 for $6,500,000, Perry intended to make the 3-acre estate compound near the famed Chateau Marmont her and then-husband Russell Brand‘s marital love nest. Amid rumors of an impending divorce and before the moving vans could even get in the front gates, the duo split for good – and the home remained vacant.

      Shortly thereafter, Perry made her unlucky love nest a “pocket listing” and was trying to sell it without officially listing the home for sale. Perhaps she was asking too much money or people just didn’t want the bad juju associated with the home, but Perry couldn’t find her buyer. She officially listed it April 2013 and has been desperate to part with it ever since.

      Despite having a red-hot new love life with crooner John Mayer, Perry was still without a buyer for her marital home. She discounted the home twice, in hopes that a lower price will entice someone to make an offer.

      Now, the home is listed as “pending” and the deal is expected to close soon.

      The home, dubbed “Park Hill,” was built in 1921 and is comprised of a significant Mediterranean residence with two-story grand entry that continues into two-story living room overlooking all of Los Angeles and the city’s dramatic skyline. The property has a separate two-story guest house that was formerly a caretaker’s apartment on the lower level and a Carriage House on the second level for auto storage.

      In 2004, another guest house was built and could be used as a private residence, as it comes complete with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The lushly landscaped backyard has a lagoon-style pool with waterfall and small bridges. Adding to the allure of this property, the home neighbors Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Storer House.

      Perry has since moved on to a two-home compound that she purchased for $11 million and Russell Brand recently spent $2.2 million on a hilltop bachelor pad.

        The original home, pictured here, isn’t much to look at. Gated and down a long driveway, it has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,436 square feet on more than a half an acre, with those incredible Los Angeles views.

        Altman told Trulia Luxe Living that the place is a teardown and that in the coming months, he is planning to “knock it down and build a 7,500 square foot modern with sick views.” When completed, the new home will be valued around $9 million.

        Eugene Jeffries of Coldwell Banker represented the seller and naturally, Josh Altman represented himself in the transaction.

Offering stunning, close-up views of the world-famous Hollywood sign, a home in this price range with these features stands out significantly among competing Los Angeles listings.

                The home features an open layout, gorgeous hardwood flooring and a custom remodeled interior. Fully equipped with wiring for a Smart Home system, this property has the potential of being navigated from anywhere in the world, just by using your smart phone. Various windows, skylights and two-level exterior decks offer plenty of natural light throughout with stunning views of the Hollywood hills and world-famous Hollywood sign. A selling point for any Hollywood recording artists, the home features a professionally designed recording studio, which also has potential to be converted to a home theater.

                Street level features include a cozy living room, a dining area, master suite with fireplace and large kitchen with Center Island, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The lower level includes two extra bedrooms, full bath, studio, and custom laundry area.

                    $11,000,000

                    Hollywood’s very own Renaissance Man, Ryan Seacrest, has just sold his former Los Angeles home for $11M clams. According to TMZ and public records, that’s about $500K less than he paid when he bought the home from Kevin Costner back in 2006 and way, way, WAY less than the $37M+ he paid for Ellen Degeneres and Portia di Rossi’s Beverly Hills compound.

                    For “the hardest working man in Hollywood,” times have really changed since he first bought this here home in 2006. In the past 6 years, Ryan’s star has risen in showbiz, as have his numerous paychecks from gigs like E! News, American Idol, his role as an executive producer for the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise, his radio show and much, much more. That much pure Hollywood gold has translated into some real real estate dreams coming true for Seacrest.

                    While his former pad was posh by anyone’s standards, Seacrest needed to flex some of that Hollywood muscle and make a statement that he had arrived. There is no better way to do that in tinsletown than buying a massive, majorly expensive piece of property. We know his new place is spectacular, but what do we know about his dearly departed home?

                    Let’s dig in to the details: The Hollywood estate was affectionately dubbed ‘Casa di Pace’ (House of Peace). The 8,000 square foot bachelor pad of peace features 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a guest house, tennis court, swimming pool and a massive, 4,500 bottle wine cellar. Originally built in 1974, the home sits behind gates on nearly almost an acre of prime Hollywood hilltop with canyon and city view.

                    The home was once “Idol-ized” by Americans when it graced the pages of Architectural Digest in January 2008.

                    Super agent to the stars, Kurt Rappaport, represented Seacrest in the sale.

Ellen and Portia needed a new place to call home after selling their spectacular compound to the busiest man in Hollywood, Ryan Seacrest.

                      Degeneres and de Rossi closed on their new home on Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills on May 18, 2012, and Cort quickly decamped to a stunning new home just up the road in the 90120.

According to public records, he paid $10,450,483 and closed on the deal on June 5, 2012.
