    Erica Packer has just spent $13.5 million on a dazzling mansion in Bel Air!

    The Australian singer and model is known around the world as the ex-wife of gaming billionaire, and one of Australia’s richest men, James Packer. After their fall 2013 divorce (and a rumored $100 million settlement), Erica is closing the book on her six-year marriage in style and is stepping out on her own by creating a new life for her and her three children in the US.

    It was recently reported that Packer was renting a stunning Beverly Hills home for $100,000 a month. While she was working on securing an amazing rental, she also had her eye on a permanent place to put down roots, and found it in a 6-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom, 10,534 square foot gated estate in lower Bel Air. Originally listed for $14,950,000, Packer paid $13,500,000 and the deal closed on March 10, 2014.

    Reminiscent of an Italian Villa, Erica’s new estate has an elegant sandstone foyer, a spacious formal living room with fireplace, arched ceilings and gorgeous French doors. Additional public rooms on the main floor include an office or den, a huge climate-controlled wine room, formal dining room, and extraordinary gourmet kitchen with adjoining family room. Also on the main level is a mud room/craft room and a maid’s suite.

    The second floor offers 4 family bedrooms, a media room, laundry room, and luxurious private master suite with private terrace, his and her baths and custom walk-in closets.

    The outdoor grounds offer great space for both grand entertaining and relaxation, including a custom pool, spa, large stone patios and spacious pool house.

    Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker represented the listing and Rayni Romito of Hilton & Hyland was Packer’s listing agent.

            A 22,000 square foot estate on the West Coast isn’t enough for the genetically gifted married duo of supermodel Gisele Bundchen and star quarterback Tom Brady. Now, the NY Post reports that the hot couple are on the hunt for a new place to call home in New York City. Just this week, Gisele was spotted checking out an $11,495,000 duplex in the new Walker Tower luxury development at 212 W. 18th Street.

            The supermodel, sans husband Tom, toured a 3-bedroom, 2,800-square-foot condo that includes a 400-square-foot terrace and stellar views of the Empire State Building. Brady wasn’t touring the home with Gisele this week because the Patriots just started their organized team activities in Boston. He is pulling his weight though, as he just signed a lucrative contract extension that will help pay for this pricey pad.

            The Post reported that sources close to the couple say the gorgeous duo are shopping the city’s real estate listings and are looking to spend between $9 and $12 million dollars for their Big Apple abode.

            Will it be this stunner? We’ll have to wait and see…

                Are Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking for a new place to shack up together in New York City? The answer is yes, according to the New York Daily News. It has been reported that the genetically-blessed British couple checked out a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplex at 136 Baxter Street in SoHo last week. The apartment, which spans two entire floors, is currently for sale for $4,495,000.

                The duplex penthouse offers ultimate comfort and privacy with 2 entrances, a wood-burning fireplace, 10-foot timber beamed ceilings, red oak floors, original cast iron columns, exposed brick walls, and full length steel frame windows and over 600 square-feet of private outdoor space off the living room. The kitchen features Valcucine, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances with custom-designed limestone and hand-cut glass tile baths. The unit also has private storage.

                The New York Daily News’ inside source says the actor and the model stayed at the condo for “over 30 minutes and Statham even went up and down the stairs repeatedly to check out the view.” Statham was reportedly enamored with the condo’s privacy and bright, sun-soaked rooms. Whether he was enamored enough to make an offer is something we’ll just have to wait and see.

                Statham also purchased a West Coast abode from Ben Stiller last summer for $11,450,000.
