    Gorgeous, globe-trotting couple Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger, have just sold their Los Angeles pied-a-terre for over asking!

    In a deal that closed on September 30, 2014, Jackson and Kruger banked $1,488,000 for the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home they were asking $1,450,000 for.

    Purchased in 2009 for 1,315,000, the barely-used mini-compound was the West Coast home base for the long-term duo, who split time between New York, Paris…and wherever else their glamorous careers take them.

    It’s no shock that Kruger, who is a fashion industry darling and a frequent face on “best dressed” lists, owned a home described as “chic.”

    Located on a prime street in the Hollywood Hills, the just-sold property is walled and gated for the utmost privacy. In the main house, an open floor plan showcases a living room with a brick fireplace, elegant formal dining room with built-in shelving, and a den/media room. Calming white walls, dark oak floors and large windows punctuate these spaces.

    The gourmet kitchen features a La Canche range, butcher block center-island, exposed wood shelving and a farmhouse sink that overlooks the garden.

    The European inspired master suite has newly-refinished poured concrete floors, a fireplace and a walk-in closet. The adjacent master bath has an extra-large shower with wishbone marble floors. French doors lead to the large terrace, with views of Hollywood. The second bedroom has a door to the terrace and an adjacent remodeled bathroom.

    Downstairs, the home has coveted guest quarters that contain its own kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living area. A true guest oasis, it can be accessed through the main house or a separate entrance.

    Adam Sires of Nourmand & Associates represented Josh and Diane in the sale, and his colleague Sherri Rogers, also of Nourmand & Associates, represented the buyer.

      ‘The 70’s Show’ actor Topher Grace has just put his Hollywood Hills hideaway on the market for $1,895,000.

      Topher bought the place in January 2006 for $1,275,000 from actor Jesse Metcalf.

      Tiny by Hollywood standards, the home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1,799 square feet.

      Described by his real estate agent as a “picturesque pied de terre,” the home sits on a private cul-de-sac off of Sunset Plaza. What it lacks in square footage and space, it makes up for in location, location, location!

      The single-level home has a great open floor plan, with hardwood floors and soft, natural night throughout.

      The gourmet kitchen has custom cabinetry, and the master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, plus a sumptuous bath.

      Tophers’s tiny pad has a seamless indoor/outdoor flow to a sparkling pool and  several lush outdoor spaces for lounging and entertaining.

      Topher joins his other ‘That 70’s Show’ cast mates, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, on the real estate merry-go-round. Ashton just sold his bachelor pad for $9.92 million, and Mila is asking nearly $4 million for her single gal spread.

        Former star football player and current “Live! with Kelly and Michael” talk show host Michael Strahan has just relisted his TriBeCa loft.

        Purchased in 2008 for $1.66 million, Strahan tried to give the space the heave-ho in 2010, putting it back on the market for $1.85 million.

        According to his listing agent Frances Katzen of Douglas Elliman and Curbed NY, Strahan had used the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,911 square-foot loft as a pied-a-terre and had plans to renovate but never quite got around to it. Instead, he leased the apartment out to a tenant when it failed to sell in 2010.

        In a stronger market, Strahan is giving a potential sale another go, putting the place back on the market for $2.25 million.

        Sans interior renovations, nothing seems to have changed inside the place except the decor. See what it looked like last time it was listed by checking out the former listing photos here.

        Earlier this summer, Strahan made a $3 million profit on a “teardown” home in Bel Air that he flipped a year after purchasing it. He intended to make renovations and turn it into his West Coast dream home, but changed his mind and sold it for a major profit.

          New York City

          Most Known For

          Award-winning actress, famous for her role on "Mad About You"

          Home Stats

          2,000 square-feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

          Price

          $2,750,000

          Oscar-winning actress Helen Hunt is selling her New York City apartment for $2,750,000, according to the Wall Street Journal. Hunt has her primary residence in the 90049 area code of Los Angeles, but like most Hollywood folks, Hunt is semi-bicoastal for projects and events and has a pied-a-terre to lay her head when she’s on the East Coast. Hunt purchased this part-time home in 2006 for $2,400,000 and is looking to gain a nice little profit of $300,000 on its eventual sale.

          Hunt’s 2,000 square-foot pad was originally a six-room layout that was reconfigured into a full 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with stunning eat-in-kitchen. You enter this apartment from a semi-private elevator landing into an elegant central foyer which seamlessly integrates large scale entertaining and living spaces. Renovations and upgrades include a large kitchen with professional-grade appliances, hideaway office areas, abundant built-in storage, restored herringbone floors, crown moldings, and decorative fireplaces, with antique lighting throughout. The apartment is bathed in sunlight all day from three exposure points and enjoys excellent cross-ventilation. This architecturally distinctive prewar cooperative was built in 1915 and has 35 units, a live-in superintendent, porter staff, and 24 hour doorman. It is located on the quietest end of 86th Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive, with very little commercial traffic, steps from beautiful Riverside Park, and in close proximity to mass transportation and Broadway’s commercial conveniences.
