    The dancing and acting dynamo that is Julianne Hough has just bought herself a new place to kick up her feet.

    According to property records and The Real Estalker, Ms. Hough spent $1,943,575 for a house high in the Hollywood Hills that’s very reminiscent of her Nashville and country roots

    With charming rustic chic ambience, Julianne’s new abode has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 2,101 square feet of living space. Just like Julianne, the house is a knockout, and the views will take your breath away.

    Delivering exactly what a house high in the hills should have, the place has magnificent wrap-around views of city lights, far-reaching mountains and the famous Hollywood sign.

    Inside, the light and bright home has a large chef’s kitchen with center island and top-of-the-line appliances, a step-down living room, a great master suite with a sumptuous bath. With perfect indoor/outdoor flow, the home has a lanai that flows out to a massive lawn and pool area.

    Julianne famously dated Ryan Seacrest for 2+ years, and during their time together, she bunked up with him in the insane $37M compound he bought from Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. While it’s no Seacrest compound, Hough’s new bachelorette pad is a sweet spot for this rising star.

      After her high-profile split from Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough reportedly has a new “Safe Haven“: a $3 million mansion purchased by Ryan as a parting gift when their two year relationship came to an end in March. According to our source, Ryan pulled a move similar to his American Idol costar Simon Cowell, who gave his ex-fiance a high dollar mansion in the wake of their split. Details on Hough’s new home are still under wraps, but the “Dancing With The Stars” dancer and budding movie star reportedly decamped to the new gift mansion shortly after moving out of the $37 million-dollar compound she shared with Ryan for the past year. Their former love nest was purchased from Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi in May 2012 and seemed to signal to the world that Seacrest was finally ready to settle down and build a family life with Hough.

      Reports on their breakup cite his hectic schedule and inability to kick his workaholic ways as the main impetus for their split. He must have loved her in a major way though, since he allegedly spent some serious coin on her new bachelorette pad.

      While Hough was mid break-up and likely closing on her new Los Angeles home, she found the time to list and sell her Nashville condo. Located at 900 20th Avenue in the heart of Nashville, Hough paid $649,000 for the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,829 square foot condo in 2009. She relocated primarily to Los Angeles in the past couple years, and likely had the property leased out to a tenant. Property records do show that she managed to dance out of the property and make a pretty penny. She sold the condo on January 7, 2013 for $900,000.

        Seacrest Sells! Hollywood Renaissance Man Sells Former Pad for $11M

        Hollywood’s very own Renaissance Man, Ryan Seacrest, has just sold his former Los Angeles home for $11M clams. According to TMZ and public records, that’s about $500K less than he paid when he bought the home from Kevin Costner back in 2006 and way, way, WAY less than the $37M+ he paid for Ellen Degeneres and Portia di Rossi’s Beverly Hills compound.

        For “the hardest working man in Hollywood,” times have really changed since he first bought this here home in 2006. In the past 6 years, Ryan’s star has risen in showbiz, as have his numerous paychecks from gigs like E! News, American Idol, his role as an executive producer for the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise, his radio show and much, much more. That much pure Hollywood gold has translated into some real real estate dreams coming true for Seacrest.

        While his former pad was posh by anyone’s standards, Seacrest needed to flex some of that Hollywood muscle and make a statement that he had arrived. There is no better way to do that in tinsletown than buying a massive, majorly expensive piece of property. We know his new place is spectacular, but what do we know about his dearly departed home?

        Let’s dig in to the details: The Hollywood estate was affectionately dubbed ‘Casa di Pace’ (House of Peace). The 8,000 square foot bachelor pad of peace features 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a guest house, tennis court, swimming pool and a massive, 4,500 bottle wine cellar. Originally built in 1974, the home sits behind gates on nearly almost an acre of prime Hollywood hilltop with canyon and city view.

        The home was once “Idol-ized” by Americans when it graced the pages of Architectural Digest in January 2008.

        Super agent to the stars, Kurt Rappaport, represented Seacrest in the sale.


          Ryan Seacrest Makes a Deal With Ellen Degeneres for $37M Compound

          According to gossip machine TMZ, Hollywood’s hardest-working businessman Ryan Seacrest has officially swooped in on Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s former Beverly Hills digs for $37M. DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi first listed the property back in October 2011 and shortly thereafter moved into Brad Pitt’s more private bachelor pad. Hollywood sure does keep it in the family!

          Seacrest is currently searching for a new owner for his former Los Angeles estate, which is listed for $11.985 million.

          The multi-talented Seacrest has completely taken over Hollywood since his American Idol hosting debut in 2002. He is currently an on-air personality for two Los Angeles radio shows, an executive producer for eight television reality shows -most notably heading the Kardashian television take over,- a host on the ever-popular E! News, and touching young children’s lives daily with The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. If that wasn’t enough, Seacrest has also just recently signed back on to host American Idol Season 12, as well as taken on a spot on the Today Show as a guest correspondent.

          It’s no wonder Ryan can afford to buy this ginormous 2.87 acre compound!

          The full property consists of a main house, two additional guest cottages and an extra three-bedroom house. The entire 15,000 square foot property was featured on Architectural Digest in November 2011 and gives a great sneak peak at the history behind its evolution. According to the article, Degeneres purchased the main home fully furnished from Will & Grace cocreator Max Mutchnick after falling in love with it when invited over for an American Idol viewing party – how ironic is that!

          Degeneres and de Rossi added their own flare to the residence by purchasing the two neighboring properties, installing a koi pond, scattering dozens of trees for privacy, and toning down the formal décor to give the reclaimed-wood floors and wooden beams a more relax feel. It is unknown if Seacrest purchased the compound fully furnished but by the look and sound of it, various LA talents have made their artistic marks on it, so we hope he was able to keep as-is!
