    $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.

      After moving out of her massive mansion due to stalkers and burglars, Rihanna’s former Pacific Palisades home is officially on the market with a $14,995,000 price tag!

      The Barbados-born beauty moved into the home in December 2012, and her Southern California paradise quickly became a nightmare. After just a few short months in the home, trespassers, stalkers and attempted burglars have all been arrested at or near the property, prompting RiRi to flee the urban oasis for her own safety. In the most extreme case, a 27-year-old man was arrested on the property after showing up multiple times, claiming to be her “future husband.”

      The globetrottering Grammy winner has since had ‘her people’ move her belongings out of the home and into another undisclosed location, freeing up her former home for new residents. It was for rent in November 2013 for $65,000 a month!

      Reports say she’s since decamped to a penthouse in New York City. She also reportedly purchased a $22 million villa in her native Barbados earlier this year.

      Built in 2010, the estate is nestled in the hills of Los Angeles, and features a neutral-to-warm color scheme throughout, with sandy walls and dark wood and tile flooring from head to toe. The home exudes a strong modern-Caribbean influence, offering simple architecture and sleek finishes, with a slight twist. Reminiscent of a tropical villa, almost every room comes complete with walls opening to the backyard allowing for plenty of natural light and easy access to the pool and spa. A super-modern kitchen offers 14-foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and a full bar. In addition to the pool and spa, the outdoor entertaining area offers a 6,000-square-foot garden area with outdoor BBQ, bar, and sundeck.

        Erica Packer has just spent $13.5 million on a dazzling mansion in Bel Air!

        The Australian singer and model is known around the world as the ex-wife of gaming billionaire, and one of Australia’s richest men, James Packer. After their fall 2013 divorce (and a rumored $100 million settlement), Erica is closing the book on her six-year marriage in style and is stepping out on her own by creating a new life for her and her three children in the US.

        It was recently reported that Packer was renting a stunning Beverly Hills home for $100,000 a month. While she was working on securing an amazing rental, she also had her eye on a permanent place to put down roots, and found it in a 6-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom, 10,534 square foot gated estate in lower Bel Air. Originally listed for $14,950,000, Packer paid $13,500,000 and the deal closed on March 10, 2014.

        Reminiscent of an Italian Villa, Erica’s new estate has an elegant sandstone foyer, a spacious formal living room with fireplace, arched ceilings and gorgeous French doors. Additional public rooms on the main floor include an office or den, a huge climate-controlled wine room, formal dining room, and extraordinary gourmet kitchen with adjoining family room. Also on the main level is a mud room/craft room and a maid’s suite.

        The second floor offers 4 family bedrooms, a media room, laundry room, and luxurious private master suite with private terrace, his and her baths and custom walk-in closets.

        The outdoor grounds offer great space for both grand entertaining and relaxation, including a custom pool, spa, large stone patios and spacious pool house.

        Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker represented the listing and Rayni Romito of Hilton & Hyland was Packer’s listing agent.

          Songstress Nicole Scherzinger, best known as the frontwoman of the girl group ‘The Pussycat Dolls,’ is selling the Hollywood Hills home she bought from Daisy Fuentes in 2006.

          Scherzinger was at the top of her game a few years back, when the Pussycat Dolls were tearing up the charts. Since her days as a ‘Doll,’ she’s had some solo hits and a gig at the judges table on both the US and UK versions of the ‘X Factor.’

          Reports have emerged that she just quit her X factor gig, but things are about to get really busy and exciting for Nicole. Just this week, reports emerged that she and boyfriend, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, were engaged!

          On the home front back in Hollywood, Nicole is selling the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 4,014 square foot Hills estate she bought from Daisy Fuentes for $2,165,000. Now listed for $2,349,000, Scherzinger is likely to eek out a small profit if she can get full asking price for the home.

          The gorgeous Mediterranean-style home sits on a 1.5-acre knoll and has no immediate neighbors – perfect for a celebrity that craves a little time out of the spotlight.

          There are expansive views from every room, many outdoor living spaces and plenty of space for a potential pool.

          Inside, Nicole’s home has a 2-story living room with soaring ceilings, a spacious dining room, 3 gas/wood burning fireplaces, and a gourmet eat-in kitchen/great room combination with granite counters, stainless appliances and oodles of room for entertaining.

          The generous master suite features an over-sized closet, ample storage and a stunning marble bath with separate stall shower. Guest bedrooms are located upstairs, one has a large outdoor terrace. Downstairs is an additional bedroom, which could also be used as an office.

          This home offers outstanding seclusion and serenity within a star-studded neighborhood. Perhaps Nicole will keep the streak alive and sell to another celeb!

          Enzo Ricciardelli of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.

            Pop diva Mariah Carey and her TV host husband Nick Cannon are selling their Bel Air mansion for nearly $13 million!

            Just listed and first reported by The Real Estalker, the home at 3130 Antelo Road is a gated Hamptons-style estate on an acre of land in primo Bel Air, CA. Carey and Cannon purchased the 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 11,750 square foot pad on April 2, 2009 for $6,975,000.

            If you’re wondering why Mariah and Nick are asking nearly double what they paid for it, it’s because the estate has been meticulously renovated to bring it up their “Glitter-y” standards. Now, the estate has a grand formal entryway, a master suite comparable to the penthouse in the finest hotels, a formal dining room with a fireplace and breathtaking views, an enormous kitchen and an incredible “Aspen” room that Nick and Mariah use as a den, but can easily accommodate parties of several hundred of your closest friends.

            Other A-list amenities inside include a movie theater, basketball court and gym. Outside, the estate has a sprawling backyard with a pool, putting green, and parking for more than 20 cars.

            According to property records, the couple still own an oceanfront compound on Windermere Island in the Bahamas and a massive New York City triplex.

              Toni Braxton is proof that you can start anew!

              Six months after the singer and star of the reality TV show, “Braxton Family Values,” emerged from her second bout with bankruptcy, she put down close to $3 million on a new Calabasas crib adjacent to Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian.

              According to reports, Braxton is the proud new owner of a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5,323 square foot home in the exclusive and celebrity-infested “The Oaks” neighborhood.

              Braxton’s new purchase is a French-country inspired single-story home with a a private courtyard entry. Inside, gleaming wood floors, custom beam ceilings and built-in cabinetry accentuate the formal living area. Adjacent, a magnificent chef’s kitchen has Sub Zero and Wolf stainless appliances, granite counters and elaborate tile work and custom cabinetry. Toni’s new private master suite features a sitting area, dual walk-in closets and a bathroom with limestone floors, a spa tub, designer tile shower, water closet and vanity.

              Outside, a lushly landscaped private yard includes a salt water pool, spa, loggia, multiple fountains and outdoor fireplace.

              This new purchase is quite the financial accomplishment for Braxton, who claimed debts of about $50,000,000 when she first filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

                  Finally!

                  After many months on the market, multiple price chops, and a few failed deals, it looks like Katy Perry has finally snagged a buyer for the Hollywood mansion she bought during her marriage to ex-husband Russell Brand.

                  Purchased by the songstress on June 24, 2011 for $6,500,000, Perry intended to make the 3-acre estate compound near the famed Chateau Marmont her and then-husband Russell Brand‘s marital love nest. Amid rumors of an impending divorce and before the moving vans could even get in the front gates, the duo split for good – and the home remained vacant.

                  Shortly thereafter, Perry made her unlucky love nest a “pocket listing” and was trying to sell it without officially listing the home for sale. Perhaps she was asking too much money or people just didn’t want the bad juju associated with the home, but Perry couldn’t find her buyer. She officially listed it April 2013 and has been desperate to part with it ever since.

                  Despite having a red-hot new love life with crooner John Mayer, Perry was still without a buyer for her marital home. She discounted the home twice, in hopes that a lower price will entice someone to make an offer.

                  Now, the home is listed as “pending” and the deal is expected to close soon.

                  The home, dubbed “Park Hill,” was built in 1921 and is comprised of a significant Mediterranean residence with two-story grand entry that continues into two-story living room overlooking all of Los Angeles and the city’s dramatic skyline. The property has a separate two-story guest house that was formerly a caretaker’s apartment on the lower level and a Carriage House on the second level for auto storage.

                  In 2004, another guest house was built and could be used as a private residence, as it comes complete with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The lushly landscaped backyard has a lagoon-style pool with waterfall and small bridges. Adding to the allure of this property, the home neighbors Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Storer House.

                  Perry has since moved on to a two-home compound that she purchased for $11 million and Russell Brand recently spent $2.2 million on a hilltop bachelor pad.

                  Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties is the listing agent.

                    Glee crooner Chris Colfer has something to sing about – he just sold his home in the Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles for $945,000.

                    Purchased on March 3, 2011 for $860,000, property records show that the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 2,462 square foot home just sold on December 5, 2013. He originally listed it in September 2013 with the overly optimistic asking price of $1,150,000.

                    Colfer’s just-sold home is a newly-remodeled Contemporary style home located in the prestigious Hollywood Hills. The three-level home has gorgeous views from every room – a must in the Hills. The ultra chic kitchen comes complete with stainless steel appliances, a cooks island, wine fridge and oversize walk-in pantry. Perfect for entertaining, the home has an awesome lounge area adjacent to the kitchen that’s complete with fireplace, balconies and beautiful canyon views.

                    Upstairs, you’ll find the 3 bedrooms, including a luxurious Master which overlooks the canyon and features a huge walk-in closet and spa-like bath with amazing downtown views.

                    Listing photos show the home with bare bones furnishings and staged furniture, and that’s because Colfer is long gone. He may have just sold this month, but in August 2013, he splashed out $1.6 million for another home on a cul-de-sac nearby in the Hollywood Hills, where he’s been nesting ever since.

                      Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump is selling his rocking Hollywood view home for $2,275,000!

                      Stump gained notoriety as the lead singer, guitarist and composer for the massively popular rock band Fall Out Boy, which also includes Ashlee Simpson’s ex-husband Pete Wentz. When Fall Out Boy went on hiatus a few years back, Stump did his own thing and released two critically-aclaimed solo albums and even produced albums for other artists, including Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes.

                      In 2013, Fall Out Boy announced the end of their musical hiatus and released a brand new album that debuted at #1 on the charts, and quickly followed on to that album with a second release.

                      With an incredible musical comeback and more hits, Stump may be celebrating his success by upgrading his digs! He just listed the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 2,509 square foot home he bought on April 2, 2008 for $1,975,000.

                      With views of the city, ocean, Lake Hollywood, vineyards and the iconic Hollywood sign, this renovated home with a custom, soundproofed recording studio is a fabulous private, gated enclave for any rockstar.

                      The home features a sun-drenched open floor plan and chef’s stainless kitchen with bamboo cabinets, an entertainer’s island, French sliding doors, a stone-etched fireplace, custom corner study and a large outdoor area ideal for dining under the stars.  The floating stairs of exotic Tigerwood lead to a serene Master suite with a private balcony for stargazing. Walk-in closets, wood floors, and a beautiful master bath create the perfect retreat. The rest of the home includes 2 additional bedrooms, a second bath, custom glass gates, solar panels, a new metal roof, 2 car garage and security system.

                      Jodi Rubin of Sotheby’s holds the listing.
