    Fall Out Boy Bassist Pete Wentz has just sold his rocking pad in Studio City, CA, according to public records.

    Ashlee Simpson’s ex-husband is currently dating model Megan Kamper, and the two were are expecting a baby in the near future. The ‘Fall Out’ from the pregnancy announcement? Time to move!

    With a little one on the way, and a five-year-old son with Simpson, Wentz needed to a bigger home base, so he sold his Studio City abode just two short years after moving in.

    Wentz purchased the place on April 13, 2012 for $1,050,000. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, nearly 2,000 square-foot home is situated in the foothills amongst a forest of tall trees, waterfalls and exotic plantings. The property has been lovingly maintained and enhanced over the years and the interiors are filled with designer touches. The open-plan living, dining and kitchen have a wood burning fireplace and a wall of French doors open to a grand, Wisteria covered veranda. The convertible third bedroom or den also open up to the lush outdoor area. Upstairs is the master suite, office and guest bedroom and third bath. The custom baths feature vessel sinks, glass tiles, stone and custom cabinetry.

    Outside, lush grounds surround the house and meandering pathways take you to a tree shaded spa, Japanese tea house, children’s play house, waterfalls and architectural koi pond. The separate guest quarters and bath complete this amazing property. Hardwood floors, recessed interior lighting, extensive outdoor lighting, security cameras, built-in speakers and music are just a few of the many features that made this a great nest for Wentz for the last two years.

    When Wentz was still married to Simpson, the two lived in a pricey place in Beverly Hills.

    Thomans Atamain represented Wentz and Gregory Zmrukhtyan repped the sellers. Both work for Dilbeck Real Estate.

      Newly ‘out’ actress Ellen Page just sold her modest Studio City digs after snapping up Venus William’s former home in the Hollywood Hills for $1.701 million.

      With the purchase of Williams’ home, Page no longer needed the 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home she purchased back in 2011 for $885,000. She was asking $1,050,000 and sold for just below that: $1,041,409.

      Perched in a prime Studio City Hills location on a privacy-friendly dead-end street, Page’s just-sold bungalow is a rare turn-key Cape Cod Traditional Home.

      The sunny home features beamed ceilings, a brick fireplace, hardwood floors and multi-door access to a pool and outdoor dining area.

      A fully remodeled kitchen has cook’s appliances and a breakfast nook.

        Report: Courteney Cox & David Arquette Snag Buyer For Beverly Hills Architectural Gem

        Price

        $18,000,000

        According to reports, Courteney Cox and her ex-husband, David Arquette, have finally found a buyer for their under-the-radar Beverly Hills architectural estate

        Listed for $19.5M, the Real Estalker is reporting that the Mid-Century style home is in escrow for about $18 million bucks, and the rumored buyer is successful producer, songwriter and Grammy-winner, Dr. Luke. He’s also the same celebrity real estate aficionado that snapped up Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne‘s former Malibu beach house for $7.925M in 2012. 

        Timing is right for Courteney and David to make a deal on the estate they own together. Although they still amicably co-parent their 10-year-old daughter Coco together, the duo have been officially divorced since May 2013. Although the two remain “Friends,” Courteney just announced her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, and David has since moved on to girlfriend Christina Mclarty, with whom he has a young son named Charlie West

        After they separated, the estate spent two years unofficially on the market as a “pocket listing.” With no takers, the A. Quincy Jones-designed Beverly Hills estate hit the MLS in September 2013 for $19,500,000.

        The Wallace Ridge estate is nestled in the uber-private and high-priced gated Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills. In June 2004, in their happily married days, Cox and Arquette purchased the trophy property for $5,450,000. They had the single-story home completely restored by renowned architect Cory Buckner in 2006.

        The in-escrow estate is an approximately 5,500 square foot home on one level, with 4 bedrooms (plus maids rooms), 5.5 bathrooms, detached office and uniquely gorgeous circular swimming pool.

        Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland held the listing.

          Jim Parsons has just parted ways with his Los Feliz starter home, mere months after snapping up Robert Pattinson’s glittering estate for $6,375,000.

          Property records show that Parsons went out with a whimper, instead of ‘Bang,’ on his smaller, more modest house, selling the spread on June 20,2014 for $1,575,000. He had high hopes for more dough when he listed the place for $1,850,000 in January 2014. While he didn’t get full asking, he did rake in more than the $1,300,000 he paid for the place in April 2009. 

          Located just a few blocks away from his new, bigger home in the same Los Feliz neighborhoodParson’s just-sold starter home is a beautifully remodeled and immaculately decorated hillside home with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths and 2,827 square feet of living space spread out over two levels.

          The open floor plan features fireplaces in the living and dining rooms,  and a spacious cook’s kitchen.

          The lower-level features a den/office and a master suite with sitting room, large en-suite bathroom with spa tub and separate shower, and a huge walk-in closet.

          Outside, a charming private entry patio contains an outdoor fireplace.

          We suspect that Parsons and his fiance Todd Spiewak aren’t sweating the lower-than-hoped-for sale price as they nest nearby in their new, upgraded, A-list digs. Not ones to keep it all in one Los Feliz neighborhood, the engaged duo also spent $1.822 million for a NYC apartment near Gramercy Park in August 2013.

            After snapping up Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s former home in Tarzana, CA, newly married actress Kaley Cuoco Sweeting has just sold her former bachelorette pad in Sherman Oaks, CA for $2,565,000.

            According to property records and the Los Angeles Times, Kaley and her brand new professional tennis player husband, Ryan Sweeting, sold the home after listing it in March 2014 for $2,795,000.

            Built 10 years ago and located in a prime section of Sherman Oaks, the Tuscan-style estate has a open floor plan that feature bright and airy formal dining and living rooms – ideal for entertaining.

            The kitchen is a cook’s dream, with top-of-the-line appliances and a swank center island.

            The upstairs holds the master suite, with grand balcony and patio, amazing bath and a walk-in closet. The other 3 bedrooms upstairs are all en-suite, and Kaley converted the front suite into a salon/dressing room complete with every girl’s dream: built ins, shoe racks and a bathroom with a professional shampoo bowl and 2 private balconies.

            Outside, the home has an outdoor kitchen with an eat-at bar, a swimming pool and a spa.

              Three years after buying in Los Feliz, Jack Osbourne has sold the home for a nice profit.

              The famous rock ‘n’ roll offspring purchased the home in December 2011, for $2,820,000, just 4 months before he became a first-time dad. He and wife Lisa lived here for a few short years before flipping the home back on the open market in April 2014 with an asking price of $2.998 million. Just a month later, the home has closed for $3,200,000, which is $202,000 OVER the asking price.

              Listing details show that Osbourne’s meticulously restored Spanish-style home at 2220 N Berendo Street is a private oasis in the heart of prime Los Feliz, with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathroom and 4,810 square feet.

              Painstakingly renovated by the previous owners in 2011, Jack’s just-sold home is a buyer’s dream: effortlessly functional for today’s modern lifestyle, all while retaining the charm and character of its authentic 1926 Spanish architecture.

              Passing through a sunny courtyard, you’ll find charming details from the 1920′s era, including splashing fountains, and craftsmanship that is second to none. A stunning kitchen lies at the center of the home, which opens to a family room with soaring ceilings and French doors leading out to the central courtyard and pool.

              A spacious master suite is situated upstairs, along with 2 additional bedrooms, each with their own private bath. A separate guest house features vaulted beam ceilings, a full kitchen and separate bedroom.

              Perfect for any high-profile buyer, the home is walled and gated to ensure the utmost privacy and security.

                Zac Efron just closed the door on the last piece of his former life as a young Hollywood bad boy.

                After two stints in rehab and a skirmish down at LA’s (in)famous skid row, the seemingly reformed actor has just sold his former Hollywood Hills party pad for $2,775,000.

                Following a tumultuous time period in his life where he privately struggled with addiction, Efron sought out more Zen in his life, and he started at home. He moved out of this home after buying a ‘majestic Zen Contemporary’ property in Los Feliz in October 2013,  paying close to $4 million for the new home.

                The fresh start it provided him? Priceless!


                Efron listed the house that was the backdrop to a darker period in his life in March 2014, asking $2,850,000. Two months later, he got almost asking price for the home that was originally designed by Rodney Walker for the famed Case Study program. The home was eventually built using those plans after the program timeframe, and subsequently reinvented 50 years later.

                Efron’s just-sold home may be steeped in history, but it’s also a modern wonder. With 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, the home embodies the ideal California lifestyle in a primo location.

                Whole walls of glass open in every room for seamless indoor/outdoor flow and beautiful natural light. Situated up a gated drive on a flat lush lot, this home features heated concrete floors, a unique infinity pool with an ozone system and an open kitchen with a Wolf range and sub-zero appliances.

                Offering coveted seclusion and style, the home is the perfect ‘celebrity hideaway’ for the unknown buyer.

                Efron paid $2,350,000 for the home on December 3, 2008 and made a few bucks on the sale.

                  Gorgeous actress Eva Mendes just sold her Hollywood starter home for almost $10,000 over asking.

                  Property records show that Ryan Gosling’s girlfriend just sold the home on April 21, 2014 for $1,278,630 – which is $9,630 more than the $1,269,000 she was asking for the place when it went on the market in March 2014.

                  Eva Mendes isn’t the only name on the deed for this home - she actually owned it with her ex-boyfriend George Gargurevich. Eva and George bought the house for $584,000 on December 2, 2002, back when they were happily coupled up in what eventually became an 8-year romance that ended in 2010.

                  While they never had their “happily ever after,” together, they made a pretty penny on this real estate investment.

                  This just-sold home is a dramatic and downright funky Mid Century home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom and 1,732 square feet of tropical-inspired living space. Renovated over the course of the decade, the beautifully-designed living space is graced with explosive city views.  A true bohemian den, the home has “artful pockets of space for nomadic entertaining…and vintage wall paper, exquisite lighting and European fixtures.”

                  Like many homes with views of Los Angeles, Mendes’ starter home was brimming with walls of glass that open to multiple outdoor decks. The outdoor gardens have fruit trees, chickens, raised vegetable boxes, an outdoor shower and a cedar hot tub.

                  Eva hadn’t lived in this particular home in quite a while – she owns and occupies a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home nearby that she purchased in April 2008 for $3.2M. Eva’s hunky boyfriend Ryan Gosling has recently been spotted outside this particular home, squashing rumors that the duo were on the rocks.

                  Recently, rumors have started circulating that Ryan and Eva are engaged.

                    The massive home has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 5,794 square feet, and sits on prime beachfront property on Malibu’s exclusive and coveted Carbon Beach. Allen purchased the home on June 9, 2010 for $25,067,500.

                    Leslie and Julie are upgrading their lives in Malibu, trading a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,014 square foot home on La Costa Beach for their new Carbon Beach digs. Their former Malibu estate is on the market with a $12,995,000 price tag.

                    Moonves also owns a $14 million mansion in Beverly Hills and a condo in Pacific Palisades.
