    Backstreet (bad) Boy A.J. McLean has just relisted his Mediterranean mansion in Los Angeles - at a major loss. 

    McLean paid $2,458,000 for the spot in September 2006, and now, he’s asking just $1,795,000 for the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom spot. A potential loss of that size can’t be music to the former boy bander’s ears. He tried to recoup some of the money he paid for the place when he first listed the home in April 2012 for $1,999,999. With no buyers in sight, McLean and his new wife, Rochelle Karidis, pulled the home off the market for a bit. 

    Now, the home is back! 

    An “oasis” located on the most prestigious, privately owned and tree-lined street in The Oaks, the house has over 3,000 square feet of open living space. There’s a large formal living room, and a dining room with built-ins. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, a built-in wine refrigerator and plenty of space atop the island.

    Creatively planned, the home’s indoor/outdoor flow is perfect for entertaining. The home is highlighted by a gorgeous backyard with gas fireplace, built-in BBQ, and a magical water fountain. Lush landscaping throughout the property creates the ultimate in home privacy.

        She’s asking $3,499,000 for the 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 4,792 square foot home. The ‘Unwritten’ singer wrote a check for $2,300,000 when she bought the place back in July 2009.

          Jim Parsons has just parted ways with his Los Feliz starter home, mere months after snapping up Robert Pattinson’s glittering estate for $6,375,000.

          Property records show that Parsons went out with a whimper, instead of ‘Bang,’ on his smaller, more modest house, selling the spread on June 20,2014 for $1,575,000. He had high hopes for more dough when he listed the place for $1,850,000 in January 2014. While he didn’t get full asking, he did rake in more than the $1,300,000 he paid for the place in April 2009. 

          Located just a few blocks away from his new, bigger home in the same Los Feliz neighborhoodParson’s just-sold starter home is a beautifully remodeled and immaculately decorated hillside home with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths and 2,827 square feet of living space spread out over two levels.

          The open floor plan features fireplaces in the living and dining rooms,  and a spacious cook’s kitchen.

          The lower-level features a den/office and a master suite with sitting room, large en-suite bathroom with spa tub and separate shower, and a huge walk-in closet.

          Outside, a charming private entry patio contains an outdoor fireplace.

          We suspect that Parsons and his fiance Todd Spiewak aren’t sweating the lower-than-hoped-for sale price as they nest nearby in their new, upgraded, A-list digs. Not ones to keep it all in one Los Feliz neighborhood, the engaged duo also spent $1.822 million for a NYC apartment near Gramercy Park in August 2013.

            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!

He and wife Lisa lived here for a few short years before flipping the home back on the open market in April 2014 with an asking price of $2.998 million. Just a month later, the home has closed for $3,200,000, which is $202,000 OVER the asking price.

                Passing through a sunny courtyard, you’ll find charming details from the 1920’s era, including splashing fountains, and craftsmanship that is second to none. A stunning kitchen lies at the center of the home, which opens to a family room with soaring ceilings and French doors leading out to the central courtyard and pool.

                  Actor Tim Curry has just sold his stunning Spanish-style home in Los Angeles for $3.2 million.

                  ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ actor purchased the place from ‘Frasier’ star David Hyde Pierce in 2006, paying $2 million for the 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,365 square foot home at 4724 Cromwell Avenue.

                  Under Curry’s ownership, the 1920’s era home underwent an extensive restoration that brought it up to the modern century, all while keeping the period details and charm of the private home that sits on park-like grounds.

                  Tim Curry has had a successful acting career on the stage and screen, and in the realm of real estate, he seems to have the magic touch. Three of his former estates have gone on to be the homes of other massive celebrities. He sold a house in 2005 to Christina Ricci, another one that he owned is currently Colin Farrell’s Los Angeles home, and most notably, he owned the home at 2666 Aberdeen Avenue that Robert Pattinson just sold to Jim Parsons for $6,375,000.

                    Petite actress Christina Ricci, who’s recently started the “Riccing” trend of squeezing into small spaces, is now exiting another relatively small space – her 1,891 square foot Los Feliz bungalow.

                    Ricci just listed the chic, single story 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom home, located in the most desirable area of Los Feliz: “The Oaks.” She paid $1,505,000 for the place December 8, 2005. Now, she’s asking $1,695,000.

                    Located down a gated drive, the traditional-style home has an open floor plan, with living family rooms that sit adjacent to a dining room with French doors that opens to a covered patio, pool and terraced gardens.

                    The 2 bedrooms are both en-suites, and Ricci’s master bedroom also includes an attached sitting room/dressing room.

                    In April 2012, Christina put the property up for lease, asking $10,000 a month.
