    NBA Baller Chris Bosh is showing us the literal meaning of the term now that his Pacific Palisades home has hit the market for $14,500,000, as first reported by the LA Times

    The NBA star, who currently dribbles for the Miami Heat, is away from this home so frequently that it’s time to finally give it up. He’d hung on to it for a few years and had it for rent for $45,000 a month. With a life in gorgeous Miami and a $12,333,000 mansion on the water there, Chris and his wife no longer needed the to-die-for So Cal spread.

    Chris’ for-sale place on the West Coast is a real palace in the Palisades. For a mere $14.5 million, you’ll get a wonderful ocean-view gated estate on approximately an acre-and-a-half. Secluded at the top of a knoll, the home has spectacular unobstructed views of the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and mountains. The outdoor area is punctuated with a resort-style infinity pool with swim up bar and lounge areas. A huge outdoor eating area features a full outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. There’s even an outdoor shower and large flat grassy area, perfect for extravagant entertaining. Inside, you’ll find a movie theatre, bar area with billiards, basically a total sports bar within the house.

    The home is perfect for the CEO-type, with it’s ultra-luxurious office/library. Last but not least, the home has a huge master suite with dual master baths with huge walk-in closets and large ocean view balcony with spa off the master.

    For those who need a little extra help around the (giant) house, the home comes with fully-equipped staff quarters.

    Baller!

      Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is finalizing the sale of his longtime Pacific Palisades estate, which was listed for $9,995,000. Sources close to the deal say the buyer is paying close to asking for the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 6,753 square foot estate that Gooding bought for $3.5 million in May 2000.

      Nestled in the heart of Pacific Palisades, Cuba’s almost-sold Contemporary English estate is set  amidst mature trees on almost an acre of lush, park-like grounds, with complete privacy and seclusion.

      Close to the Village and beach, Cuba’s estate has an open floor plan that includes a formal living room with wrap-around windows, and a dining room with wine cellar and butler’s pantry. A cook’s kitchen and family room combo has an adjacent mudroom/office. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art theatre, detached guest suite, 6+ car garage/gym and 2 laundry rooms.

      Outside, resort-like grounds include a private drive, expansive lawn, lighted hockey rink and pool/spa.

      Last year, Gooding made another real estate move, listing his starter home in Northridge, California for $729,000.

        $14,995,000

        After moving out of her massive mansion due to stalkers and burglars, Rihanna’s former Pacific Palisades home is officially on the market with a $14,995,000 price tag!

        The Barbados-born beauty moved into the home in December 2012, and her Southern California paradise quickly became a nightmare. After just a few short months in the home, trespassers, stalkers and attempted burglars have all been arrested at or near the property, prompting RiRi to flee the urban oasis for her own safety. In the most extreme case, a 27-year-old man was arrested on the property after showing up multiple times, claiming to be her “future husband.”

        The globetrottering Grammy winner has since had ‘her people’ move her belongings out of the home and into another undisclosed location, freeing up her former home for new residents. It was for rent in November 2013 for $65,000 a month!

        Reports say she’s since decamped to a penthouse in New York City. She also reportedly purchased a $22 million villa in her native Barbados earlier this year.

        Built in 2010, the estate is nestled in the hills of Los Angeles, and features a neutral-to-warm color scheme throughout, with sandy walls and dark wood and tile flooring from head to toe. The home exudes a strong modern-Caribbean influence, offering simple architecture and sleek finishes, with a slight twist. Reminiscent of a tropical villa, almost every room comes complete with walls opening to the backyard allowing for plenty of natural light and easy access to the pool and spa. A super-modern kitchen offers 14-foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and a full bar. In addition to the pool and spa, the outdoor entertaining area offers a 6,000-square-foot garden area with outdoor BBQ, bar, and sundeck.

          Oscar-winning actor Matt Damon has just price chopped his waterfront Miami mansion by $1 million dollars.

          Originally listed for $20 million, Damon’s Miami home sat on the market for nearly 8 months before he cut a solid mil from the asking price in hopes that the new, improved $18,999,0000 price tag will entice a buyer.

          The historic house, dubbed “Maravilla,” was built in 1935 and sits on a rare double lot with an incredible 170 feet of bay frontage and unobstructed bay views.

          Inside, 7 bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms sprawl out over 12,705 square feet of living space. Highlights include a theater room, wine cellar, custom office, oversized living room, a gourmet kitchen and a spa-like bath and private terrace overlooking the water.

          The pool house has a full outdoor summer kitchen for entertaining and the property is rounded out by a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom guesthouse adjacent to the sparkling pool.

          Damon, his wife Lucinda and their children currently live on the West Coast in a massive $15 Million Pacific Palisades mansion.

              Poppy Montgomery Buys New Home For $3.6 Million After Losing $250K On Former Home

              Brentwood, CA

              Most Known For

              Montgomery played FBI agent Samantha Spade on the CBS drama Without a Trace from 2002 to 2009 and currently stars in the police drama Unforgettable

              Price

              $3,625,000

              Actress Poppy Montgomery has just dropped $3.6 million on a brand new home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles!

              The purchase comes on the heels of a $250,000 loss on the sale of her former home in Pacific Palisades, which she sold on April 16, 2013 for $2,881,500. She originally paid $3,133,530 for the home in January 2005.

              Montgomery lost some real money on the sale of her former home before she swooped up a new, even more expensive home, but it’s not likely that she’s hurting for funds. The Australian-born actress is best known for playing FBI agent Samantha Spade on the CBS drama Without a Trace from 2002 to 2009 and for her latest role as Det. Carrie Wells on the CBS police drama Unforgettable

              Montgomery gave birth to a baby girl named Violet in April 2013, just days after she sold her Pacific Palisades home.

              With a new baby joining her family, Montgomery has put the loss behind her and has moved on to a stunning 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 3,089 square foot Spanish-style hacienda with mesmerizing views of the private vineyard and hills beyond.

              Inside, a dramatic and glamorously chic great room with vaulted beamed ceilings and a large fireplace is the heart of the home. The adjacent kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and a large center island. Down the hall, two bedrooms and a library and an office complete the main floor. Upstairs, the private master has a fireplace, tree top views and a spa-like bath.

              Outside, the home has partially-covered verandas, a lap pool and terraced lawns.

              Property records show the deal was finalized on October 31, 2013. Mary Lu Tuthill of Coldwell Banker-Brentwood represented the sellers and Clifford Rowe of Teles Properties, Inc was Montgomery’s agent.

                Larry David‘s home selling hopes are getting a little “Curbed.”

                The Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator/actor has just chopped $2,004,000 off the price of his tudor-style, fairytale-esque home in Pacific Palisades. Originally listed for $14,999,000 in March 2013, David’s been unable to find a buyer and just reduced the price significantly to bait a buyer.

                Gated and private, David’s estate features 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and more than 10,000 square feet. The living room, family room, dining room and kitchen all feature fireplaces.  The master suite has an adjacent large deck to sit and enjoy the ocean views. An office, gym and playroom round out the additional rooms in this incredible estate. A large separate guesthouse with fireplace has views of the sparkling pool and views beyond!

                David has been divorced from his high-profile environmental activist ex-wife Laurie since 2007.

                  Tom Hanks and wife of 25 years, Rita Wilson, are shedding one of the houses from their “Big” property portfolio for $5.22 million. Purchased by the A-list duo for $1.9 million when they were first married in 1988, the home has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and is 6,289 square feet. The gorgeous but rather boring and monochromatic house has large living spaces, a library and even a private beauty salon.

                  Two years back, Hanks and Wilson made real estate headlines when they paid $26 million for another Pacific Palisades mansion that could easily be mistaken for Los Angeles‘ famous hilltop Getty Museum.

                  Hanks and Wilson’s other property holdings include yet another Pacific Palisades mansion they picked up in January 2010 for $1.45 million and a beachfront Malibu Colony spread they’ve owned since the early 1990′s.

                    Jennifer Love Hewitt is looking to spend her summer partying in her modern new abode in Pacific Palisades. First revealed by the incomparable Real Estalker and property records show that Miss Hewitt paid $3,250,000 on April 25, 2013. Prior to buying this stunning architectural gem in April, J Love sold a home in Toluca Lake that was the primary residence of her recently deceased mother. Jennifer lived just down the street and likely needed a change of scenery after her mom passed away.

                    She’s finding it in her hip and sexy retreat in Pacific Palisades, which was redone in 2007 and designed by well-regarded  architect Melinda Gray.

                    Outside, the home has a private, sparkling spa-style pool surrounded by bamboo, as well as a fire pit, fireplace, flat screen, lounging area and more.

                    Inside, Hewitt’s new home has hardwood floors and an open floor plan that gives it that soothing organic and urban feel. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms spread out over 2,872 square feet.
