    ‘American Pie’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ actor Jason Biggs has just listed his Mid-Century Modern home in the Hollywood Hills for $2,995,000.

    In a prime Sunset Strip location, the swank home has a semi-private drive and is walled and gated for the utmost privacy. The hillside locale highlights city-to-ocean views within this 2,756 square foot home, which Biggs purchased from Wonder Years actor Fred Savage in 2007 for $2,249,000.

    The main level provides generous open-concept living room, vaulted ceilings and abundant light with a great room, dining room and kitchen areas all opening up to both the view and the pool/terrace.

    The first floor is completed by a spacious office or den, a massive en-suite guest room and courtyard-access, a secured garage and a large dog run.

    Elsewhere inside, Biggs’ Master suite has the same explosive views, a luxe en-suite bath, and a sensational media/screening room with its own bath and state-of-the-art entertainment system.

    The reason for the move? Perhaps Jason and his wife, Jenny Mollen, are looking for a place that’s a bit more family-friendly. Married since 2008, the duo welcomed their first child, a boy named Sid, in February 2014.

    Peter Maurice of Rodeo Realty holds the listing.

      Singer, actor, songwriter and all-around Renaissance man Jesse McCartney has just dropped some of his hard-earned dough on a modern pad in the Hollywood Hills.

      Property records show that the ‘Beautiful Soul’ singer spent $1,965,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,635 square foot home in the Hills with a sleek architectural design and spacious open floor plan.

      Inside the home, huge windows and skylights allow natural light to pour into the gallery-like interior and glass doors open to a private pool and garden. The stylish master suite has a massive walk-in closet and a bathroom that is a work of art unto itself. A chic open kitchen has high-end appliances and a super functional design. Other amenities include garage parking for four cars (a rarity in the Hollywood Hills!), a temperature controlled wine room, an in-home sauna, and beautiful backyard with salt water pool, spa and illuminated garden area.

      McCartney’s last foray in the real estate world was a doozie. In May 2010, he sold a 2-bedroom Los Angeles home he owned for a $177,000 loss!

      In this latest deal, Greg Holcomb of Partners Trust Beverly Hills represented the seller and Elise Woroboff of Keller Williams Beverly Hills repped McCartney.

        Extremely private and perfect for the young star, Overstreet’s new single-story home offers fabulous indoor/outdoor flow for entertaining, plus a swank wrap-around deck for enjoying the stunning views of the City of Angles.

          Ludacris just dropped $4.8 million on a spectacular modern home in the Hollywood Hills!

          Property records show that this new home is a major upgrade for the actor and rapper, who sold a penthouse condo for $879,000 the very same week he bought his new multimillion-dollar home in the hills.

          Ludacris took a serious hit on the condo he paid $1,030,000 for in 2007. After doing the math, it looks like Luda lost $151,000 on the sale.

          Don’t cry for Ludacris, though. He’s now living in an incredible modern home with panoramic city views. With 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and nearly 6,000 square feet, he now has nearly every luxury amenity a buyer could dream of.

          His new magnificent master bedroom suite comes complete with dual baths, huge dressing closets, a steam shower, soaking tub, fireplace, wet bar and private balconies with head-on views of the city, the Hollywood Sign and snow capped mountains.

          The home is rounded out by an expansive home theater, infinity edge pool, volume ceilings, walls of glass, wine cellar, bar, separate maid’s quarters, two-car garage and off-street parking for up to seven additional cars.

          In addition to his recent Hollywood Hills purchase and condo sale, Ludacris has a second penthouse condo for sale in the same building as his former condo and it’s listed for the very same price – $879,000. He also owns a grand $2.8 million property in Atlanta, Georgia.

          Rande Gray of Keller Williams Hollywood Hills represented the seller and Maya Vander of Keller Williams Beverly Hills was Ludacris’ agent.

            Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has just dropped almost $5 million on an incredible mansion for his 27-year-old wife Crystal Harris. The 87-year-old Hefner is setting his young bride up for life, should he go to party in the big grotto in the sky in the near future.

            The home in the Hollywood Hills closed on April 18, 2013 for $4,995,000. Sleek and gorgeous, the home has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and is 5,917 square feet. While it’s no sprawling Playboy Mansion, Harris’ future home is a gated architectural home on an exclusive cul-de-sac. Inside, all the finest materials were used to craft a high tech smart home with an open, contemporary feel.

            Outside, a white glass infinity pool and spa and stone walls create a serene escape in the middle of the Hollywood Hills.

            According to TMZ, the couple is happily living at the Playboy Mansion, and they have no plans to move.  In fact, Hef and Harris are actually renters! Hugh doesn’t personally own the Playboy Mansion … it’s owned by Playboy Enterprises.

            Now, the duo have an escape from the constant madness that is the day-to-day at the Playboy Mansion and Harris has a place to call home forever.
