Actor Tim Curry has just sold his stunning Spanish-style home in Los Angeles for $3.2 million.

‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ actor purchased the place from ‘Frasier’ star David Hyde Pierce in 2006, paying $2 million for the 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,365 square foot home at 4724 Cromwell Avenue.

Under Curry’s ownership, the 1920′s era home underwent an extensive restoration that brought it up to the modern century, all while keeping the period details and charm of the private home that sits on park-like grounds.

Tim Curry has had a successful acting career on the stage and screen, and in the realm of real estate, he seems to have the magic touch. Three of his former estates have gone on to be the homes of other massive celebrities. He sold a house in 2005 to Christina Ricci, another one that he owned is currently Colin Farrell’s Los Angeles home, and most notably, he owned the home at 2666 Aberdeen Avenue that Robert Pattinson just sold to Jim Parsons for $6,375,000.

 

    Baseball Legend Barry Bonds Just Sold His Beverly Hills Mansion For $22 Million!

    MLB star with the home run record and a tarnished reputation due to doping allegations

    Retired MLB slugger Barry Bonds just hit it out of the (Beverly) Park!

    The controversial home run king sold his massive Tuscan-inspired pad in the ultra-fancy Beverly Park area of Beverly Hills for $22 million. Property records show the deal closed on March 5, 2014 – 14 months after Bonds put the incredible estate up to bat for $25 million.

    Inside sources say he had his eye on that initial $25 million list price for two reasons. First – and most importantly – he’d make an insane profit, considering he spent $8.7 million for the house in 2002. Secondly, Bonds gave the Mediterranean stunner a $25M price tag as an homage to his former jersey number – 25, which he considers to be his lucky number.

    Lucky or not to him, it wasn’t the number buyers were willing to pay for the 1.85 acre, seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom manse. He price-chopped the home to $23.5M in December 2013 and finally signed a contract with a buyer at $22 million.

    Bond’s just-sold estate was a faux Tuscan villa in the heart of Los Angeles’s most desirable area. Fully renovated, Bonds added 30-ft soaring ceilings in the grand entry foyer, gorgeous hand-painted Trompe L’oeil murals, and Venetian plaster throughout. The home boasts over 17,000 square feet of living space and unparalleled California living.

    Outside, the grounds feature over 2,000 square feet of spacious loggias, a pool and cabana, and 2-story guest house.

    Love him or hate him – there’s no in between – Barry Bonds is one of the biggest sports characters of the last two decades. Rocketing to superstardom in Pittsburgh and helping make a forlorn franchise a regular in the playoffs while winning his first league MVP award, Bonds made it clear he had all the tools to become one of the greats. He took his talents back to Northern California in 1993, where he was born and raised, to play for the San Francisco Giants and resurrected that franchise while winning 6 additional MVP awards (4 in a row at one point), leading the team to the World Series in 2002, and cementing his place in baseball history. Of course, this was before the BALCO scandal and perjury investigation which has cast a shadow over Bonds’ mountain of accomplishments to the chagrin of some and the delight of others.

      Two-time World Series Champion Barry Zito has just tossed his West Hollywood home on the market for $4,375,000!

      Zito was just cut loose from the San Francisco Giants when his $126 million dollar contract expired after seven up-and-down years. Without a mound to stand on, Zito has turned his focus back to his bulging real estate portfolio, which includes this for-sale home, a massive property in the Sunset Plaza area of Los Angeles, and a San Francisco-area home that’s currently for rent for $28,500 a month.

      A shrewd real estate investor, Zito knows a great house when he sees one. Zito’s West Hollywood gem sits on one of the most private and quiet Bird Streets above Sunset Blvd and is newly remodeled. And those views!  Zito’s place has the kind of views usually available only to the most elevated lots far above Sunset Blvd, but unlike those high-in-the-sky properties, this house is only about 3-5 mins away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

      Listing agent Sharon Hills of Kobeissi Properties, gave us some inside intel on Zito’s property, saying, “he never lived here, but purchased it because of its location in the prestigious Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills, and the incredible views.”

      The views range all the way from the LA skyline to the ocean and can be seen perfectly though the many walls of glass. Soaring ceilings and an open concept floor plan create a dramatic and spacious environment and most rooms open directly to outdoor terraces, perfect for entertaining.

      According to the listing, which was first spotted by the Los Angeles Times, all bedrooms have their own bathroom, and the master suite sprawls across the entire top floor. A rarity in the Hollywood Hills, this home has an abundance of street parking and a designated turn around for easy access.

        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.

              Glee starlet Naya Rivera is flipping her home in Beverly Hills, asking $2.1 million for a home she paid $1.475 million for on April 4, 2012. If she gets her full asking price, Naya is set to make $625,000 for less than a year’s ownership, minus what she paid to remodel this stunner. This kind of return isn’t common in every market, but in this celebrity-infested Beverly Hills neighborhood, buyers will pay big bucks for the 90210 zip code.

              Rivera is making her house flip a family affair – she’s employed her mother Yolanda Rivera as the listing agent on the home, which hit the market in mid-March and already has “sale pending” sign hanging out front. Nice work, mom!

              Rivera’s almost-sold home is on a cul de sac and has been remodeled. It features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and is a spacious 3,300 square feet.  The home includes a formal living area and dining room overlooking the courtyard and pool. The library includes a wet bar with its own kegerator! The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a built-in sauna and steam room. The backyard includes a completely remodeled salt water pool, jacuzzi and fire pit.

              Rivera is decamping to a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 4,186 square foot East Coast traditional estate in Los Feliz that property records show she purchased on April 15, 2013 for $2,600,000.

                SNL alum Chris Parnell, who is also known for his role as Dr. Leo Spaceman on NBC‘s Emmy Award-winning comedy series 30 Rock and his co-starring gig as Fred Shay on the ABC sitcom Suburgatory, has just purchased new home in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Property records show the actor/comedian closed on the deal on March 15, 2013 and paid $1,700,000 for a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,482 square foot home.

                Common for the neighborhood, Parnell’s home is a 1920′s Spanish Revival home that got a modern day makeover. Prior to Parnell’s purchase, the home was majorly overhauled. The integrity of the basic structure and character of the house was maintained while the interior was expanded and reconfigured to incorporate the prior owner’s extensive library and art collection. The resulting floor plan organized all the rooms around a new central atrium with a large oculus and surround by an arcade of book shelves.

                Outside, a drought tolerant California native landscape was designed using the existing mature trees on the property. Inside, features include: custom lighting with graphic eye controls, whole house filtration system, wood and limestone floors, kitchen and bathroom fixtures from Waterworks, Viking appliances and a 14 panel photovolactic solar system.

                This isn’t the first home Parnell has purchased in this hip and happening Los Angeles neighborhood. He also owns another property on Silver Lake Blvd that he purchased on November 20, 2007 for $620,000. That 1,360 square-foot home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. With this new Parnell purchase, it’s likely we’ll see his older, smaller home pop up on the open market soon!

                  Pamela Anderson, the iconic sex symbol who etched herself into the American psyche by donning the famous red Baywatch swimsuit, is slightly underwater when it comes to her finances. For months and months, the blonde bombshell has been plagued with negative news stories about unpaid taxes and out-of-control spending on her home remodel. And despite being a household name, Pam is now doing what any other American in her situation must do –  downsize! The blonde beauty often rented out her longtime Malibu Colony home, but now, the property that was once her sanctuary is a money pit, and she’s officially put it on the market for $7,750,000. Property records show that she purchased the home on December 29, 2000, for $1,800,000. There’s no telling how much Pam poured into the home’s construction and multiple remodels over the years, but with the listing price almost $6 million more than what she paid for it, here’s hoping she’ll make a profit so she can put her financial woes behind her.

                  Pam’s amazing home is within walking distance from all things Malibu. Finely crafted, the teak-sided home is perfect for enjoying quiet beach days, while still being close to the action. According to listing information, you “enter through the front Barb Wire stone gate, cross the small courtyard of olive trees and lavender, and push open the ultra-wide swinging glass door, and find yourself in an open living room and kitchen design with a top-of-the-line home theater and black baby grand piano.”

                  Philip Vertoch was the home’s architect and Josh Chryssanthou and Pamela Anderson herself are responsible for the design.
