    From one hot young star to another!

    Selena Gomez just sold her Tarzana, CA ‘starter home,’ to rapper Iggy Azalea and her LA Laker beau, Nick Young. Together, the duo paid $3,450,000 for the stunning 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 6,630 square foot compound.

    Gomez, a Disney star, turned rehab-attending Justin Bieber off-and-on girlfriend, made changes on the home front. In March 2014, she paid $3.69 million for a gated mansion in Calabasas – the very same LA suburb where Justin Bieber terrorized his neighbors before subsequently selling his sprawling pad to none other than Khloe Kardashian.

    Now that she’s nestled into her Calabasas spread, Gomez sold the home she’s lived in since July 2011, when she paid $2,175,000 for the pad. Under Gomez’s ownership, the multi-winged house has gotten some upgrades, additions and remodels…thus the much-higher price that Iggy and Nick paid to move into a picture-perfect, turn-key home.

    Iggy and Nick’s new spot is a gorgeous and luxurious ‘compound’ on an entire acre. A lavish upstairs guest suite has its own separate entrance, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two walk-in closets, and is encircled by a balcony that overlooks the entire grounds.

    The newly-built downstairs media room has a bar that opens to the outdoor BBQ and firepit lounge area – perfect for parties!

    Outside, there’s a pool, spa, shaded outdoor pergola, Bocce Ball court, fruit tree orchard, full basketball court with lights (perfect for the Lakers star), plus additional room for a full tennis court.

      Los Angeles Clippers head coach Glenn Anton “Doc” Rivers has just snapped up a $8.2 million dollar nest in the bird streets of the Hollywood Hills.

      Before he took the helm of the Clippers, Rivers was a former player who was best known for his defense during his time in the NBA. Commendably, he’s been able to navigate the turmoil and ownership changes within the Clippers organization during his two year tenure as head coach.

      On his home court, Rivers is making some new plays. According to the Los Angeles Times, Rivers put his condominium unit at the Westwood ‘Beverly West’ high-rise on the market in September, before purchasing this spectacular compound in Hollywood Hills West.

      A rare one-story home with 4 large bedrooms, the Hamptons-style compound has 4.5 bathroom and spectacular ocean and city views.

      The remodeled luxury home has a designer gourmet kitchen, high ceilings and a top-notch floor plan that has all public rooms opening to the amazing back yard, where outdoor entertaining is possible all year round.

      As a part of the extensive remodel, there is a multi-million dollar separate steel and glass guest house with full bath. The backyard also includes a swimmers pool and infinity spa.

      Built in 1961, the house was last sold for $5.4 million in 2007 to owners who remodeled the property extensively.



        Christina Ricci Sells At A Loss In Los Angeles

        2 bed, 3 bath, 1,891 square feet, pool



        Petite actress Christina Ricci, who started the “Riccing” trend of squeezing into small spaces last year, has now exited another relatively small space – her 1,891 square foot Los Feliz bungalow – for a much smaller-than-expected price!

        Ricci just sold the bungalow for $1,370,000. That’s $135,000 less than the $1,505,000 she paid for the place December 8, 2005.

        In April 2012, Christina put the property up for lease, asking $10,000 a month. Finally, tired of playing landlord, she listed the chic, single-story 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in January 2014, asking $1,695,000. Located in the most desirable area of Los Feliz: “The Oaks,” the home had many lookers, but no takers for months and months.

        But what’s not to love? Located down a gated drive, the traditional-style home has an open floor plan, with living family rooms that sit adjacent to a dining room with French doors that opens to a covered patio, pool and terraced gardens.

        The 2 bedrooms are both en-suites, and Ricci’s master bedroom also includes an attached sitting room/dressing room.

        Ricci and her husband, James Heerdegan, recently welcomed their first child into the world, no doubt prompting the need for a house with a bit more space.

        Adam Sires of Nourmand & Associates was her listing agent and the deal closed on November 4, 2014.

          Reese Witherspoon has just sold the remainder of her massive Brentwood compound for $10,068,000.

          After listing the entire Brentwood property and an adjacent side lot for sale for a whopping $14 million in June 2014, Reese peeled off the smaller lot in a side deal, getting $3,550,000 for the lot (with a ‘teardown’ home) on September 11, 2014.

          Now, property records show that on October 14, 2014, Reese sold the larger part of the A-list compound, which includes a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 6,956 square foot Spanish-style estate, and adjacent lot tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard-gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

          Reese wanted out of the Brentwood compound now that she’s bought a brand-new Pacific Palisades home for $12.705 million and a stately fixer-upper in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

          When the estate first hit the market, Reese welcomed Vogue.com cameras into the home for a closer look. See Reese give you the full tour of her just-sold Brentwood home here.

            Bruce Willis just bought a stunning, picturesque home in Bedford, New York for $9 million!

            The actor and his wife, Emma Heming, were spotted looking at properties in the area, as first reported by the local Poughkeepsie Journal. Property records show that they closed on a new home on August 29, 2014.

            Located within driving distance to New York City, Bedford has become a veritable hotbed for celebrity buyers who want a country escape. Willis’ new neighbors include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, who sold one home in the area and just bought another. Other familiar faces in the town include Martha Stewart, as well as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who have shunned the Hollywood life and made the tucked-away enclave their full-time home.

            Willis and his wife’s new country home is a beautiful and sophisticated shingle-style home set atop 14 acres of one of Bedford highest points, where they have breathtaking 180 degree western views across the Croton Reservoir to the Highlands of the Hudson.

            The residence is over 8,000 square feet of meticulously crafted interior living space of unsurpassed quality. Large, elegantly-scaled rooms all have huge windows and high ceilings.

            A country estate with a modern twist, the home has state-of-the-art video, sound, lighting and security systems, as well as a 1,500 bottle climate-controlled wine cellar.

            Outside, mature gardens and wonderful outdoor entertaining areas make it a true oasis. The property has a fabulous large swimming pool with heated cabana and outdoor shower. Beyond the gardens, the home has a synthetic surface tennis court and garages for four cars.

            When Willis was married to Demi Moore, he frequently escaped to Idaho, where he owned a $15 million-dollar lakefront ranch in Hailey, ID. In his new life with his new wife and two young daughters, Willis is spending his time on the East Coast. He and Heming recently sold their Beverly Hills mansion and doubled down on their live in New York, both in the city and now in this elegant country retreat!

                Bye, Bye Bird Streets!

                Jodie Foster just sold her Hollywood Hills mansion in the famed Bird Streets after struggling to find a buyer. She listed the spread for $6.4 million in June 2013 and it languished on the market for more than a year. It took a couple price chops to get the deal done. Property records show the deal closed on October 6, 2014 for $4,995,000.

                Foster purchased the home in 1995 from model Cheryl Tiegs. With a distinguished address and oodles of famous neighbors, Foster’s Spanish Villa was the ultimate celebrity hideaway for the notoriously private actress.

                The home has 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, an office and an attached guest suite. Adjacent to a formal dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to a stunning kitchen. A luxurious master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closets, fireplace and sauna.

                Outside, the central courtyard pool and brick patio are shielded by a high-reaching hedge for the utmost seclusion – a must for the notoriously private Foster, who had never openly discussed her private life in the public until she outed herself in an emotional speech while accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.

                In other real estate moves, Jodie sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $8.3 million in January 2012 and purchased a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 3,752 square foot home in Beverly Hills for  $11,750,000 on June 25, 2012.
