    ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is looking to make a sweet real estate deal!

    Reese Witherspoon and her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, have quietly listed their sprawling Brentwood mansion for $14 million.

    Per property records and The Real Estalker, the three parcels that comprise the large estate were bought in December 2003 and December 2013 for just over $11 million, combined.

    A captivating and rare find, Witherspoon’s California Spanish-style estate is tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.

    Unparalleled privacy, sprawling grounds, gorgeous gardens, richly detailed spaces, a perfect floor plan make for the ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle for any A-lister.

    Interior amenities include a double-height entry with sweeping staircase,  formal dining room with rich wood ceiling, and cozy library/den.

    A fabulous eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room open through French doors to expansive lawn, pool/spa, outdoor fireplace, sunken trampoline, children’s playground, vegetable garden and towering Eucalyptus trees.

    In total, Reese and Jim’s home has 5 bedrooms, each with private bath, including a sensational master suite with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, marble bath, two large closets, and a separate gym or office.

    Reese and her agent, David Offer, have structured the deal in two ways. The main residence is asking $10.5 million, but also available to be purchased separately is an adjacent 28,870 square foot (per assessor) parcel, which would bring the total lot size to over 1.3 acres and the total cost to $14 million.

    Reese is hoping this deal goes better than the sale of her former ranch in Ojai Reese originally had the place listed for $10 million, and price chopped it multiple times, until it finally sold for almost a million less than the $5.8 million she paid for it.

      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.

        With a primary residence that’s just perfect for the “House of Harlow” designer and her family, it’s now time to cast off the residence that Madden bought on November 16, 2004 for $1,800,000.

        The gated two-level Spanish Colonial estate sits on a tree-lined street in northwestern Glendale. The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,281 square foot home has been meticulously restored to its 1930′s splendor.

        The home’s features include an oversized formal living room, a massive kitchen with center island and high-end touches, a formal dining room and gorgeous French doors throughout.

        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.

          Robert Pattinson has officially sold his Los Feliz hacienda-style home for $6.375 million!

          Pattinson first listed the property for $6,750,000 in October 2013, and property records show that the deal just closed on January 14, 2014.

          The ‘Twilight’ and ‘Water For Elephants’ leading man purchased the home for $6,275,000 on September 2, 2011, and proceeded to nest there with then-love and ‘Twilight’ co-star Kristen Stewart. Once it was revealed that Stewart cheated on Patitinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders, she was booted from the home and he also moved out shortly thereafter. Rumors swirled that the bad memories were enough to drive the Twilight hunk out of the spanish-style home and into a short-term Beverly Hills rental while he searched for a fresh start.

          One of the first private residences built in the Hills above Los Feliz, Pattinson’s uber-private walled and gated estate is an architecturally significant property with incomparable gardens. Sitting on a terraced 1.5 acre lot, the home  has 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms and incredible original details intermingled with state-of-the-art, updated systems. The outdoor grounds feature gardens, a lagoon pool and unmatched city views. It was once owned by basketball legend Kareem-Abdul Jabbar.

          David Gray of Partners Trust Beverly Hills represented Pattinson in the sale and Ronald Shore of Keller Williams Coastal Properties was the buyer’s agent.

          Update: the buyer was identified by the Los Angeles Times as actor Jim Parsons, who stars in “The Big Bang Theory.”

            It’s been a busy month for Fall Out Boy’s guitarist, Joe Trohman. He recently bought a beautiful mansion for $1.9 million in the Los Feliz Hills, and has his former home on the market for $869,000- all while rehearsing and performing at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!

            Trohman’s new digs boast 3,419 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, vaulted beam ceilings, and stunning city views.  This Spanish-style casa also is perfect for entertaining – with a brand new, large open kitchen with an attached eating area.

            Possibly the most appropriate home feature for this famous rocker is the bonus media room on the garden level that could also be used as a screening/sound room, where he and his band-mates can watch their performance of last night’s fashion show over and over again!

              The youngest Jonas Brother is making big moves!

              21-year-old Nick Jonas, 1/3 of the now-defunct musical group The Jonas Brothers, has just splashed out $3.2 million on a secluded spanish-style compound above the Sunset Strip, as first reported by The Real Estalker.

              Set behind large gates on a private cul-de-sac, Jonas’ new home has panoramic views from Downtown to the ocean. Set on a promontory, this authentic Villa has both old world charm and every modern amenity. Recently renovated to capture seamless indoor/outdoor living, all public rooms open to the pool and  grounds. A dramatic living room with fireplace and spacious dining room are ideal for entertaining. The master suite has high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, and an adjacent master bath includes a steam shower and a large walk-in closet. Features of Jonas’ new estate include a gourmet kitchen, family room, and state-of-the-art security. An outdoor fireplace with seating and full guest house make this the perfect home for the youngest Jonas.

              Nick Jonas bought this home from Mike Myer’s ex-wife, Robin Ruzan, who had been trying to sell the home for two years.

              “The Jonas Brothers” crushed fans across the world with the news that they were disbanding after many years of making music together. They are each pursing individual projects, both personally and professionally. Nick Jonas had a small role on “Smash,” and also appeared this fall on “Hawaii Five-O.” When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Brother Kevin Jonas is expecting his first child (a girl!) with wife Danielle, and the duo are also selling their New Jersey mansion for $2.2 million. Joe Jonas hasn’t announced any major plans for the future.
