    3 homes totaling over 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres, resort-style pool

    Price

    $11,950,000

    Songstress Sheryl Crow is singing a sad little tune after chopping $4 million off the asking price of her prized compound in Los Angeles.

    After listing for the first time in 2012 and trying to (unsuccessfully) sell her Hollywood Hills home for $15,950,000, Crow’s compound was delisted in December 2013 and just came back on the market with a more down-to-earth ask of $11,950,000.

    Set behind private gates, Crow’s Spanish-style compound sits atop a hill and is comprised of 3 houses that total more than 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres.  She purchased each home individually in and around 1998, and meticulously combined the properties over the next few years.

    The main home is a remodeled and restored ‘Spanish Revival’ with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 2-story entryway, chef’s kitchen, library, wine cellar and music room.

    A second home is a Craftsman built in 1909, and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and views of the vistas of Hollywood.

    The third home on the 10 acre property is a cottage that dates back to 1885, complete with a oak-floored kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

    The entire compound is tied together with canyon pathways, trails, a tee pee, campsite, playground, palapas and a resort-style infinity pool.

    A true treasure in the heart of Hollywood.

    Crow’s had a hard time in the real estate game in recent years. This home has sat on the market for months and months, and her equestrian property in College Grove, TN has also had a hard time finding a buyer, even after more than 2 years and nearly $2 million in price reductions.

    The rest of her portfolio includes two off-market properties. One is a $3.6M estate in Nashville, Tennessee and the other is a beachfront escape in Florida.

    The listing agent for her Los Angeles estate is Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.

      Sprawling, multi-acre ranches and farms fit for a celebrity

      Price

      Multi Millions

      It’s not all sprawling mansions, sky-high penthouses or luxury pied-a-terres for the rich and famous – sometimes they like to spend a little time out on the ranch. Far, far away from the craziness of Hollywood or the hectic hustle and bustle of New York City, celebs crave a little downtime underneath the stars and away from the smog. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve put together a list of 5 stellar celeb-owned ranches:

      Whoopi Goldberg’s Marlboro Vermont Colonial Ranch & Farm

      On 745 acres, the Whoopi Goldberg-owned Robinson-Winchester Farm was completely renovated and remodeled in 2004 to exceptional standards. No expense was spared in the renovations from the beautiful 1790 colonial home to the multiple out buildings and barns and the 2 bedroom bunkhouse.The property features a tremendous equestrian facility and 15 miles of groomed woodland trails and 67+ acres of open pasture. The private estate also comes with conserved land.

      Dennis Quaid Selling Sprawling Emigrant, Montana Estate for $14M

      On 418 acres in Emigrant, Montana, Dennis Quaid’s ranch is on the market for $14,000,000. Located in the Paradise Valley of Southwest Montana, this ranch has it all: prime fishing for approximately 2 miles on both sides of Six Mile Creek and two ponds, horseback riding on the ranch and in the National Forest adjoining the ranch. Incredible views abound from a private and beautiful owners’ residence. The property features a 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom main home, as well as 4 guest houses, a ranch manager’s home and horse facilities.

      Carole King Lists Robinson Bar Ranch in Stanley, Idaho for $16M

      It isn’t often that a property this unique comes up for sale. The deeded property base and improvements provide security and comfort in the midst of a truly wild area managed by the USFS. The ranch is easily accessible by car and within a 20-minute drive to Stanley, Idaho and an hour-and-a-quarter drive to Sun Valley. The listing claims that “when you close the ranch gate behind you, the clock is turned back to another time and the incredible soul of this place will change your life.”

      Bill Gates’ Florida Equestrian Rental

      While we can’t exactly qualify this property as a down-home ranch, it makes the list for it’s sprawling land and incredible luxury equestrian facilities. Currently on the market for $12,999,000, this Wellington, Florida home is the current winter rental residence of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. According to reports, Gates is ponying up $600,000 a month to rent the property while his daughter is in town competing in the Winter Equestrian Festival, a five-month-long event. While occupying the property, the Gates family will enjoy an ultra-luxry main residence and a state-of-the-art barn.

      Sheryl Crow’s Tennessee Ranch

      Sheryl Crow has been trying to sell her College Grove, Tennessee ranch since 2010. The home had a recent status change to “off-the-market,” which hopefully means Ms. Crow was able to send the property out to pasture and onto a new owner. Luxe Living recently wrote about how she had been trying to unload the equestrian estate named Cross Creek Farm since early 2010, to no success. She even put the pastoral palace up for auction in November of 2010 with a minimum bid of $1,000,000. The auction was a flop, and the home toiled on the open market for months with a $4,500,000 price tag – a 40% price cut from its original list price. The hard-to-sell property is no eye-sore – it’s actually a beautiful 150-acre estate that includes a full equestrian facility with a 14 stall barn and indoor riding arena.
