      Celebrity Switcheroo!

      Vince Vaughn has just been identified as the buyer of Kate Bosworth’s open and airy Los Angeles hideaway. First revealed by the Real Estalker, property records show that Vaughn is indeed the buyer of Bosworth’s hills spread.

      Vince and his wife splashed out $2,375,000 for the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, 2,890 Nichols Canyon home, which is a  little less than what Kate was hoping to get for it (original asking price was $2,499,000), but the blonde beauty has by no means sold at a loss to Vince. The ‘Blue Crush’ actress paid $2,100,000 when she purchased the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom place in 2005.

      Vaughn’s new private pad is set behind a discreet gate that leads you down a long drive to this contemporary home on over half an acre.

      The floor plan is open and flowing, with the dining and living areas seamlessly connected. In the heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen features professional appliances and huge windows that overlook the patio and views beyond.

      The home’s 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths include the upstairs master retreat with sitting area, two walk-in closets, spa-like bath with double Carrara marble vanity and a jetted tub.

      French doors leads to multiple outdoor areas, including a lap pool and an outdoor living room with incredible light and canyon views.

      Why would Vaughn buy from Bosworth, when he just snapped up two other properties in the last year? To add to his collection, of course! He currently owns a 12,000 square-foot penthouse in the historic Palmolive Building and another smaller apartment in the River North neighborhood of his hometown of Chicago, as well as two Los Angeles-area properties. The first is a $3,925,000 property in La Canada Flintridge, and the second is a Manhattan Beach mansion he bought for $6,447,000 from former USC football coach, Lane Kiffin.

        ‘American Pie’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ actor Jason Biggs has just listed his Mid-Century Modern home in the Hollywood Hills for $2,995,000.

        In a prime Sunset Strip location, the swank home has a semi-private drive and is walled and gated for the utmost privacy. The hillside locale highlights city-to-ocean views within this 2,756 square foot home, which Biggs purchased from Wonder Years actor Fred Savage in 2007 for $2,249,000.

        The main level provides generous open-concept living room, vaulted ceilings and abundant light with a great room, dining room and kitchen areas all opening up to both the view and the pool/terrace.

        The first floor is completed by a spacious office or den, a massive en-suite guest room and courtyard-access, a secured garage and a large dog run.

        Elsewhere inside, Biggs’ Master suite has the same explosive views, a luxe en-suite bath, and a sensational media/screening room with its own bath and state-of-the-art entertainment system.

        The reason for the move? Perhaps Jason and his wife, Jenny Mollen, are looking for a place that’s a bit more family-friendly. Married since 2008, the duo welcomed their first child, a boy named Sid, in February 2014.

          Katie’s next phase in live will start inside a “Grand European Manor with contemporary flair,” situated on an expansive lot.

          Located atop a cul-de-sac and bordering pristine conservancy land, Holmes’ new home is an expansive main residence with a separate guest casita. Extensively customized with the finest finishes, the home’s features include a gourmet center island kitchen with professional appliances, dark distressed wood floors, and use of rare stones and marble accents.

          The open floor plan includes several entertaining courtyards, including one adjacent to the dramatic formal living and dining rooms. A grand foyer is accentuated by an open library/loft and Katie’s brand new master retreat has a sitting area and a large sun deck.

          Outside, resort-like grounds feature an oversized pool with sunken fire pit lounge area, several seating enclaves, a covered loggia, large grassy area, kitchenette, and sports court. Perfect for Suri as she grows!

            $16,500,000

            In a housing market that’s going up, up, up, actor Bruce Willis had a hard time selling his Beverly Hills mansion. Originally listed for $22 million in May 2013, Willis was forced to chop $2 million off the asking price of his sprawling, gated Beverly Hills hacienda in August 2013. With a $19,995,000 price tag, the gorgeous home continued to languish on the market.

            Until now.

            Property records show that Willis finally found a buyer at a much lower price. He sold the spread for $16.5 million on August 15, 2014.

            After so many years on the market, Willis must be thrilled that the deal is done, and he and wife Emma Hemming can fully enjoy East Coast life in their chic condo in New York City.

            Despite the lower sale price, Willis still made a profit over the $9 million he paid for the estate way back in June 2004, when he bought the pad from movie industry titan Alan Ladd Jr.

            The 1928 Spanish-style residence sits on about an acre acre of flat land in a prime section of lower Beverly Hillsand has 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms spread out over 10,379 square feet of interior space that also includes a state-of-the-art screening room, his & hers bathrooms and two staff rooms. Outside, a large pool, tennis courts and the surrounding areas are an entertainer’s paradise.

            Branden Williams of Hilton & Hyland represented both Willis and the buyer in the deal.

              Reese Witherspoon is taking on a project!

              The ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ actress just bought a second home in Nashville, paying $1,950,000 for an amazing, stately mansion that’s in a sad state of disrepair.

              Described as a “once in a generation opportunity,’ the home is a stately 1930′s era home on massive 6.5 acre Oak Hill lot that’s in need of some major, major TLC. The home, as it stands now, has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 3,855 square feet.

              Reese and Jim have some serious love for Tennessee. After all, they named their young son after the state. With a son named “Tennesee,” it’s no surprise that the showbiz duo are doubling down there. Reese already owns one Nashville mansion, which she picked up for $760,000 in 2005. She grew up in Nashville, and her parents still live nearby. Although she’s been a long time California girl, times, they may be a-changin’.

              Currently, Reese and Jim have their Brentwood, California mansion for-sale as an off-market deal. They’re asking $14 million for their 5-bedroom estate and an adjacent lot. They also used to own a place in Ojai, CA, but that sold at a loss late last year.

              This new Nashville buy isn’t really a shocking purchase for “America’s Sweetheart.” Reese has always had an affinity for revamping homes and making them her own. She completely redid her ranch in Ojai, CA when she first bought it, and all of her other homes have been upgraded and renovated to perfection.

              Her new Nashville mansion has great “bones” and oodles of charm. There’s a masculine wood-paneled library, amazing hardwood floors throughout, and traditional details that give the home a distinguished feel. Each window looks out upon a picturesque brook and sweeping views of the sprawling grounds.

                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!

                  $29,500 a month

                  Justin Bieber has a new crib – and it’s perfect for the young bad boy.

                  Pop’s young prince has decamped from his rented Beverly Hills condos and moved into a sprawling Hollywood Hills home that has its own night club!

                  Justin is taking advice from Miley Cyrus, who, on a appearance on Jay Leno, told him “you have a lot of money…buy a house with a night club.” Done and done.

                  Seems like sound advice for Justin, who seems to run into trouble every time he leaves the house.

                  Now Justin can party his heart out – at home. His new rental has an 80-foot long disco with bar, lights and sound system. If that wasn’t enough, the place has a fully-equipped gym, pool table, ping pong enclave and three bars. Three bars.

                  The 16,000 square foot all-glass contemporary estate has 10 bedrooms, including two master suites with huge closets. The in-home movie theater has a 160-inch screen (where Justin was just spotted watching a movie with manager Scooter Braun and friends).

                  A floating glass staircase (or elevator) takes Justin and his entourage from one level to the next. Outside, an amazing 80-foot-long pool has a four-foot high blue glass tile rendition of the famed Hollywood sign running the length of the pool.

                  The house has a huge outdoor deck and three yards all suspended into the amazing city view.

                  Justin famously clashed with his neighbors in Calabasas, finally selling the place to Khloe Kardashian and renting in Atlanta for a hot minute. He was back on the West Coast again, this time shacking up in two condo units in a brand new Beverly Hills building. He also pissed off every neighbor in that building, before moving to this glass party palace in the Hollywood Hills.

                  The home is owned by developer Danny Fitzgerald, and was listed briefly for $8.9 million.

                    Orlando Magic Guard Ben Gordon is bouncing out of the mansion he owns in the Detroit suburb of Rochester, MI.

                    Now on the market for $4,189,000, Gordon’s home sits on 1.7 acres and has 6 bedrooms, 6.25 bathrooms, 13,298 square feet, an indoor basketball court and a home gym. A necessity for cold Michigan winters, the home has a fully-finished lower level that’s been converted into a massive living and play area.

                    The fully-functioning indoor basketball court comes complete with a massive locker room and spa with plunge pools. Just like being at the arena, but in the comfort of your own home!

                    Fit for a serious NBA baller, the magnificent luxury estate is located within a private, gated community, surrounded by multi-million dollar estates.

                    Gordon set out of the path to greatness when he started his career with the Chicago Bulls. He became an unrestricted free-agent in the 2008-09 season. He signed a five-year, $55 million-dollar contract with the Detroit Pistons, which is when he picked up this incredible home. In June 2012, Gordon and a future first-round draft pick were traded to the Charlotte Bobcats (who are now known as the Charlotte Hornets), where he played until he was waived in March 2014. In July 2014, Gordon headed to sunny Florida, when he signed with the Orlando Magic for a reported two-year, $9 million contract.

                      On-again, off-again, on-again couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have just added fuel to the fire of rumors about their rocky marriage by listing their shared Bedford, NY mansion for $8,100,000.

                      Most celebrity real estate watchers know that when the ‘for-sale’ sign goes up in the front yard, the divorce lawyers are the next people who come knocking. With these two, who publicly split and then even more publicly reconciled, it can signal that it’s finally over for good between them, or that they’re ready for a fresh start in a brand new home.

                      Whichever way they’re heading, they’re leaving behind the gorgeous mansion they purchased together in October 2010 for $5,075,000.

                      Located down a long gated drive, Catherine and Michael’s for-sale home is a 5.7 acre brick colonial-style estate. Surrounded on three sides by  a  horse farm, the estate is quiet, private and serene.

                      Generously proportioned, light-filled rooms capture the architectural details and ambiance of the 1930′s. In the thick of their separation in 2013, the home was completely renovated, wherein they added a glorious master closet suite, gym and sauna, finely crafted moldings, hardwood floors, a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen and luxurious decor.

                      The property also now features a brand new one-bedroom guest house with bath, kitchen and living room.

                      The 5.7 acre grounds also feature sprawling lawns and a sparkling swimming pool.

                      In addition to this property, Douglas and Zeta-Jones own homes on Central Park in New York City, in Swansea, UK, and in Bermuda, where they resided full-time for many years.

                      Craig Siano of Siano & Co is their real estate agent.

                      The Los Angeles Times first reported on the listing.
