    Finally something to sing about!

    Songstress Sheryl Crow was singing a sad little tune after chopping $4 million off the asking price of her prized compound in Los Angeles earlier this year. Now, there’s a ‘sale pending’ sign hanging out front!

    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 came back on the market in April 2014 with a more down-to-earth ask of $11,950,000. At that new, lower price, a buyer finally emerged!

    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 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. She just recently took that house off that market.

    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.

      In a primo Santa Monica location, Brightman’s for-sale house is in an exceptional school district and close to beach and restaurants.

      Perhaps Sarah is getting rid of her worldy possessions as she prepares for her mission to space in 2015. According to media reports, Brightman will part of a three-person crew traveling to the international space station. From there, she be the first person to sing from space.

        Oh No, Dawg!  Former ‘American Idol’ judge, Randy Jackson, just lost a chunk of change on the sale of his Tarzana, CA home.

        Purchased by the Grammy-winning super-producer in May 2005 for $2,725,000, Jackson just sold the 5 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 5,878 square foot place for $1,900,000. That’s $825,000 less than what Jackson paid when he bought it. Ouch.

        He listed the gated estate for $2.199 million in June 2014, price chopped it to $1.99M, and then quickly found a buyer…but not one willing to pay full asking on the gated estate in the El Caballero area of Tarzana.

        The buyer got a bargain basement price on a large custom-built estate with a newer gourmet kitchen with high-end amenities, including granite countertops, stainless steel Viking appliances, a SubZero fridge/freezer.

        In the master suite, Jackson’s house had his/her bathrooms, with direct access to the spa. All five bedroom are over-sized, with their own en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.

        The exterior features a sparkling swimming pool and manicured, lush green lawn. Beyond the pool, the property also featured a stand-alone guest house with full kitchen and central air and heat.

          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.

            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.

              Fall Out Boy Bassist Pete Wentz has just sold his rocking pad in Studio City, CA, according to public records.

              Ashlee Simpson’s ex-husband is currently dating model Megan Kamper, and the two were are expecting a baby in the near future. The ‘Fall Out’ from the pregnancy announcement? Time to move!

              With a little one on the way, and a five-year-old son with Simpson, Wentz needed to a bigger home base, so he sold his Studio City abode just two short years after moving in.

              Wentz purchased the place on April 13, 2012 for $1,050,000. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, nearly 2,000 square-foot home is situated in the foothills amongst a forest of tall trees, waterfalls and exotic plantings. The property has been lovingly maintained and enhanced over the years and the interiors are filled with designer touches. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen have a wood burning fireplace and a wall of French doors open to a grand, Wisteria covered veranda. The convertible third bedroom or den also open up to the lush outdoor area. Upstairs is the master suite, office and guest bedroom and third bath. The custom baths feature vessel sinks, glass tiles, stone and custom cabinetry.

              Outside, lush grounds surround the house and meandering pathways take you to a tree shaded spa, Japanese tea house, children’s play house, waterfalls and architectural koi pond. The separate guest quarters and bath complete this amazing property. Hardwood floors, recessed interior lighting, extensive outdoor lighting, security cameras, built-in speakers and music are just a few of the many features that made this a great nest for Wentz for the last two years.

              When Wentz was still married to Simpson, the two lived in a pricey place in Beverly Hills.

              Thomans Atamain represented Wentz and Gregory Zmrukhtyan repped the sellers. Both work for Dilbeck Real Estate.

                    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.
