    Jamie Kennedy, the Los Angeles-based actor best known for his role as geeky Randy Meeks in the ‘Scream’ trilogy and a smattering of other roles, now has something else to scream about – he’s still trying to sell his stunning Los Feliz home.

    Back in July 2012, Kennedy listed his 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 2,400 square foot home for $1,900,000. More than a year later, it’s back on the market for $1,899,000 – just $1,000 less than he wanted last time around. Public records show that he purchased the super slick Los Feliz-neighborhood home on July 9, 2007 for $2,150,000.

    Kennedy’s for-sale home is private and gated, and according to the first listing, it has been “re-imagined & updated for today’s lifestyle” – which basically means it has been meticulously remodeled.

    Behind the gates and glassy exterior, the house flows seamlessly with all rooms in perfect proportion. The public rooms and master bedroom feature walls of glass and pocket doors that disappear, effectively blurring the lines between indoors and out. Once outside, a hip, hotel style entertaining space with built-in bar and dining area, hot tub, pool and cabana with bathroom and shower allow for incredible entertaining all year long.

    The chef’s kitchen is perfectly positioned for entertaining. A ‘true master bedroom suite‘ features a walk-in closet, fireplace, multimedia wall projection system and a luxurious spa bathroom. This house affords chic hotel-style living in the sought-after neighborhood of Los Feliz, minutes from Griffith Park, prized shopping and hip restaurants.

    Burt Bakman of Keller Williams now holds the listing.

      2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,911 square feet



      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.

        Ahmet Zappa, the actor, musician and famous progeny of legendary rock guitarist Frank Zappa, has listed his contemporary Hollywood Hills home for $1,175,000. The home made an appearance on the market in 2010, but it never found a buyer.

        Three years later, Zappa and his wife Angeleno Shanna Muldoon (sister of Patrick Muldoon) are still trying to sell their quintessential post-and-beam one-story home.

        Located on a quiet street in the Hollywood Hills, the home sits just above Runyon Canyon with southern exposure to optimize natural light and views of the city, mountains and Hollywood sign. Walls of glass merge the indoor and outdoor spaces.

        Interior details include maple hardwood floors throughout, a chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counters and spacious master suite with ample closet space. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,468 square feet of living space.

          2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 1,789 square feet



          Desperate to shed his former life in Los Angeles, Ryan Reynolds has just re-listed his home high above the Sunset Strip for $1,599,000. The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 6 years, Reynolds is ready to part with the place at a $116,000 loss so he can be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.

          This isn’t the first time Reynolds has tried to end his relationship with this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.

          It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an initial asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market, until today, where it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2 years later, market conditions are in Reynold’s favor and he’s much more likely to sell the home.

          The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.

          Annie Challis of Keller Williams is representing Reynolds as his listing agent.

            14,000 square-foot "Smart Home" with 3 levels, 7 bedrooms, 8 full, 3 partial bath



            NFL great Jerry Rice has recently re-listed his massive 14,000 square-foot Atherton, CA home for a reduced price of $10.5 million. According to property records, Rice first purchased the land in 2001 for just $2.1 million. After building on the property, he listed it for sale in 2007 for $22 million, then once again in July of this year for $13.88 million. After a few million in price cuts, this state-of-the-art mansion is tackling the real estate market yet again, seeking a new owner – preferably a tech savvy candidate that would take advantage of all its bells and whistles.

            Located in California’s Bay Area, this estate is a tech mogul’s dream come true. Made for a champion, the seven-bedroom, eight full, and three partial bath estate comes with a built-in elevator to access its three-levels, a seven-car-garage, and $2 million dollars worth of installed electronics, including a cutting edge security system and exquisite home theater. Sitting in one of the priciest zip codes in Silicon Valley, this estate is a tech hub within a tech hub. Fully equipped with automated smartphone capabilities, residents have the capability to remotely control various appliances and security via mobile, from anywhere in the world. After tearing down the original home in 2001, and building this “smart home” masterpiece, it seems Rice was looking to add tremendous property value. It’s no doubt he clearly went all….the….way.

            Versace limestone floors, an aquarium, gym, sauna, and Swarovski crystal accents glam up the property, offering stunning elegance throughout. To appeal to the inner chef in us all, the over-the-top gourmet kitchen includes the latest stainless appliances, a deep fryer, steamer, and pizza oven. The spectacular exterior grounds offer a large entertainment area with a massive pool, Jacuzzi tub,  outdoor built-in barbecue, gazebo with built-in heat lamps, and large grass area.

              Home Stats

              7,175 square feet of interior space and approximately 3,500 square feet of exterior space; 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

              Russell Simmon’s high-priced NYC penthouse has hip hopped back onto the market. According to the fine folks at Curbed, Simmons has re-listed the place for $11M. This particular penthouse has a storied past on the real estate market. It originally made an appearance with an $11M price tag and almost sold to none other than fellow hip hop impresario Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, but the deal fell through right after 9/11. When Simmons failed to sell to Diddy, the price fell to $8.2M. Without a buyer in sight, Simmons pulled the listing and presumably continued to live in the killer pad. 10 years and some extensive remodels later, the penthouse is back on the market for…$11M. The very same asking price as a decade ago.

              Simmon’s penthouse is dubbed the ‘Lady Liberty Penthouse.’ This Financial District duplex penthouse condo has 7,175 square feet of interior space and approximately 3,500 square feet of exterior space, making it the ultimate downtown residence. A private landing leads you to phenomenal entertaining areas, living room, dining room, screening room, huge chef’s kitchen with breakfast room, library w/gas fireplace, 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths and a powder room. Throughout, 12 foot ceilings create a sense of volume.

              In addition, there is a staff room with full bath, laundry room, closets galore – and that is just the lower level. Four exposures, barrel vaulted ceilings and handsome oak strip floors add to the uniqueness of Simmon’s property. The grand circular and architectural staircase takes you to the upper level which houses the sun flooded grand master suite, two huge setback terraces, a very cozy den, a kitchenette and much more.


                Pia Zadora’s Former Home Gets a Remodel and a $16 Million Price Bump

                Home Stats

                8 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 13,585 square feet



                The new owners of Pia Zadora’s longtime estate have placed the palatial Pacific Palisades home on the market for a whopping $26,000,000. According to public records, Zadora quietly sold the home to ABR Capital LLC in 2011 for slightly less than $5,000,000. Zadora was originally asking for $10,000,000 when she last put the home on the market in 2010.

                It’s a massive price increase that we felt was worth some investigating. Photos of the property in 2010, indicate a large home dominated by custom wood finish and a large outdoor area, that seems relatively uninspired.

                The new owners must be aiming for a super high-end ‘flip,’ as the home is now completely revamped. Today, interested buyers are greeted with a stunning, 13,585 square foot modern-looking home, ideally located with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Featuring 8 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, this home is built for comfort and for entertaining, and also features two guest houses.

                The new owners and their guests will seldom have to leave this exclusive estate due to a variety of features on the property, including a grand living room, a formal dining room with room for 20, 2 offices, playroom, game room, wine tasting room, sports court and gym.

                But the excitement isn’t all indoors. Glass walls disappear to seamlessly connect comfortable outdoor living and dining areas with the interior of the house. Throw in the salt water infinity pool and you start to get a sense of the considerable effort that was put into renovating the home.

                Ginger Glass of Coldwell Banker holds the listing.

                Update: We previously reported that Pia Zadora was the current seller of this home. After taking a closer look at property records, we discovered that she quietly sold this home in 2011 for just under $5 million. The new owners are the ones looking to mint some serious cash on this high-end ‘flip.’ We regret the error.
