    Pop’s colorfully bold bad girl, Ke$ha, has just shocked everyone and bought a very vanilla Venice bungalow.

    The artist with the dollar sign in her name dropped $1.65 million of her own dollars for a pristine 1925 Spanish bungalow in a primo Venice Beach location.

    Who knew the edgy singer would be into vintage details? Her new home has oodles of them, including arched entryways and hardwood floors. The throwback details are combined with modern amenities, including an updated kitchen with Italian marble counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, a brand new master bath, dual paned windows and central AC.

    From a very romantic and feminine master suite, French doors lead to a secluded backyard, featuring an outdoor fireplace and arbor-covered hot tub.

    Ke$ha can now entertain to her heart’s desire on the side-to-back spanish-tiled patio and cook on the built-in outdoor kitchen.

    A one-car garage has been used as an artist studio/office by it’s previous owner.

    Kesha rose to fame in 2010 with the release of her first album, which spun out multiple number-one hits. She’s had a bumpy road in the last few years, including a stint in rehab. With the purchase of her new Venice retreat, she has a calm and serene place to call home.

    Matthew Irmas of Partner’s Trust Beverly Hills represented the sellers and Kesha’s real estate agent was Peter Lorimer of Peter Lorimer Group Estates.

      According to gossip juggernaut TMZ, Kim and Kanye are in escrow on a gorgeous Hidden Hills, CA mansion.

      For the bargain price of $20 million, Kimye and Baby North will finally be moving out from mom Kris Jenner’s massive estate, but they won’t be going far. Mr and Mrs. West’s new digs are just 5 minutes away from the rest of the Kardashian clan.

      Brand new, gated and completely private, Kim and Kayne’s reported new home is a French Country-style home on 3 acres, with a vineyard.

      Their spectacular new estate has a stunning master suite with dual baths, stone fireplace, skylights, enormous custom closets (perfect for the fashionista duo), a mirrored dressing area, gym, steam shower, sauna, and a private patio with spa. 

      The gourmet kitchen with three islands opens to spacious family room with volume ceilings. An elegant formal dining room has a fireplace and refrigerated wine storage. The massive home theater has upholstered walls and the game room has suede walls and a stone wet bar.

      It’s not just the inside that’s ridiculous and over-the-top.  Outside, private and lushly landscaped grounds include 2 swimming pools, 2 spas, 2 BBQ centers and a 1,050 square foot entertaining pavilion with fireplace & music, plus a secluded pool house with fireplace and bath, 3 bubbling fountains, “rock” speakers,  sports court  area, 2 vineyards, rose garden, mature trees, gatedcourtyard entry, and over an acre of lawns.

      Rumors flew this week that Kim and Kanye had pulled the plug on the massive remodel project on the Bel Air home they bought a little more than a year ago. After multiple revisions to the plan, they decided to stop construction on the reworked mansion and just start anew. With this new home, they’ve found a gorgeous, picture-perfect estate to call home. No revisions needed.

              Price

              This is where the prince of pop plays!

              Justin Bieber has settled into two swank Beverly Hills condos after selling his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and temporarily relocating to a rental in Atlanta.

              Now back on the West Coast and without a massive mansion to call home, 20-year-old Bieber has taken up residence in two condos in a brand new Beverly Hills condo building. Bieber is currently renting both the penthouse unit and a smaller condo directly underneath it, although the two units do not connect. According to TMZ, he needed the second unit for not only for more space for himself, but also his entourage.

              The Canadian crooner, who has been on a bit of an attempted (but failed) “image reboot” as of late, hasn’t won over any of his new neighbors, who have already complained of excessive noise, late-night partying and marijuana smells that seep into the shared hallways.

              After less than a month, Justin’s new neighbors are fed up. TMZ is also reporting that the condo has hired private security from the hours of 6pm and 8am, all to keep Bieber and his entourage in check and keep the peace around the building. Since Bieber’s just renting, the HOA is sending the bill for the security guards directly to the condo’s owners. Ouch.

              Bieber’s paying $16,000 a month for the penthouse unit and $11,000 a month for the 4th floor unit, for a grand total of $27,000 a month.

              Brand new and never lived in, the penthouse unit has a private rooftop deck and jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and top-of-the-line details throughout. The smaller unit has an additional 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

              If he keeps up his bad boy ways, no doubt Bieber will be on the move again soon.

                  Music legend Dolly Parton is selling her Dollywood Hollywood home, asking $1,395,000 for the Western-themed home that is said to be the former childhood residence of Natalie Wood.

                  While she spends most of her time in Music City, Dolly laid down $1,200,000 for the West Coast home in April 2007.

                  The gated mini-compound is just like Dolly – eclectic and whimsical!

                  Located in West Hollywood’s coveted Norma Triangle, the home has all kinds of charming details, including hardwood floors throughout, plantation shutters, skylight and hand painted accents.

                  One of the home’s two bedrooms has a walk-in closet, full bath and French doors leading to its own private landscaped deck.

                  Between the bedrooms, Dolly’s hideaway has a cozy den with fireplace that leads to French doors and the master bedroom which features two giant closets, built-ins with a pop-up TV, and French doors that lead to the large covered deck with built-in seating, BBQ, refrigerator and prep area.

                  The rear garden is totally private with an abundance of lush landscaping and total privacy, plus a separate climate controlled storage room. While the home is technically a 2 bedroom, the garage has been converted into adorable, private guest suite.

                  Ms. Parton is quite the real estate mogul. Property records show she has at least 15 other properties in her portfolio, mostly in Nashville, Brentwood and Sevierville, Tennessee.

                    Creedence Clearwater Revival rocker John Fogerty just sold his massive Beverly Hills estate for $18.6 million!

                    The home popped up as an off-market ‘pocket listing’ with a $23 million price tag in July 2013.

                    Nearly 9 months later, a buyer swooped in and made an offer significantly under asking, and the deal closed on March 21, 2014. While Fogerty didn’t exactly sell it for a song, it was $4.4 less than what he’d hope to sell it for.

                    Purchased by the “Proud Mary” rocker on November 20, 2002 for $2,900,000, the home at 2553 Summitridge Dr. had 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 13,476 square feet at the time he bought it. 10 years later, the home has undergone some extensive renovations that added an additional 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2,500 square feet to the residence.

                    Now, the home sits on 3 meticulously landscaped acres and features a gated entrance and circular motor court with fountain leading to the garage motor court. Inside,  16,000 square feet of living space includes 9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 2-story foyer with fireplace, double-barrel vaulted main hallway, formal living room with fireplace, formal dining room with wine room, gourmet kitchen, 2-story family room with fireplace, wood paneled library with fireplace, home theater, 2nd floor lounge with wet bar, 4+ car garage and more.

                    Outside, the property has an incredible entertainer’s yard with a covered loggia with fireplace, mosaic-tiled swimming pool with spa, expansive patio, children’s playground and outdoor dining and cooking areas. There is also a separate guest house with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen.

                    Fogerty has since moved on to a 7 bedroom, 13,053 square foot estate in Thousand Oaks, CA that he purchased for $9 million in May 2013.

                      $11,950,000

                      Songstress Sheryl Crow is singing a sad little tune after chopping $4 million off the asking price of her prized compound in Los Angeles.

                      After listing for the first time in 2012 and trying to (unsuccessfully) sell her Hollywood Hills home for $15,950,000, Crow’s compound was delisted in December 2013 and just came back on the market with a more down-to-earth ask of $11,950,000.

                      Set behind private gates, Crow’s Spanish-style compound sits atop a hill and is comprised of 3 houses that total more than 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres.  She purchased each home individually in and around 1998, and meticulously combined the properties over the next few years.

                      The main home is a remodeled and restored ‘Spanish Revival’ with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 2-story entryway, chef’s kitchen, library, wine cellar and music room.

                      A second home is a Craftsman built in 1909, and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and views of the vistas of Hollywood.

                      The third home on the 10 acre property is a cottage that dates back to 1885, complete with a oak-floored kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

                      The entire compound is tied together with canyon pathways, trails, a tee pee, campsite, playground, palapas and a resort-style infinity pool.

                      A true treasure in the heart of Hollywood.

                      Crow’s had a hard time in the real estate game in recent years. This home has sat on the market for months and months, and her equestrian property in College Grove, TN has also had a hard time finding a buyer, even after more than 2 years and nearly $2 million in price reductions.

                      The rest of her portfolio includes two off-market properties. One is a $3.6M estate in Nashville, Tennessee and the other is a beachfront escape in Florida.

                      The listing agent for her Los Angeles estate is Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.
