    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.

    Ellen’s former master suite has a redone bath, generous walk-in closet, and direct access to yard and pool.

      3 bed, 2 bath, 1,506 square feet

      Price

      $1,250,000

      ‘Hunger Games’ hunk Josh Hutcherson has just snapped a new spread, paying $1.25 million for a gorgeous East Coast traditional in the Silver Trangle area of Studio City.

      The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property was extensively remodeled in 2011. Now, the swank home features dark wood floors, a vaulted beam ceiling, and a formal dining room with fireplace, overlooking a charming brick patio. Oh, la la.

      The cook’s kitchen has an uber-popular farmhouse-style sink, Carrara marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a center island.

      Small but mighty at just 1,506 square feet, the home has a master suite with two large closers and a master bedroom with additional Cararra marble counter tops, dual sinks and a stunning claw-foot tub.

      Outside, the landscaped and terraced yard includes a sparkling blue swimming pool and views of the hillside.

      This is an interesting purchase for the Hutcherson, since its not your typical celeb buy – it’s not gated and it sits directly on the street, offering little-to-no privacy to the Hunger Games star. It’s also a majorly different purchase from the super-private “tree house” home he bought in May 2012 for $2.5 million. That home is gated, tucked away in the hills and steeped in serious celeb history. Former owners included serial home buyer Ellen Degeneres and Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger. This new buy is likely to be an investment or for a family member.

      Lori Shelton of John Aaroe Group repped the seller, and Deedee Howard of The Agency was Hutcherson’s agent.

          3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, across the street from CBS studios

          Price

          $949,000

          Actress Melissa Joan Hart is proving that stars are “just like us” – they want a short commute!

          The  actress just spent $949,000 on a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home across the street from where she films her TV show “Melissa & Joey.” Instead of battling Los Angeles‘ notoriously brutal traffic, the actress just needs to step out her front door and cross the street to get to work.

          Location, location, location!

          While the home is not typical celebrity digs (aka a giant, glamorous mansion), Hart’s new home has space inside and out, remodeled bathrooms, a large den, high ceilings, a large front yard, a cozy rear patio and seclusion from the street.

          The married mother of three boys also owns two additional homes, one near Lake Tahoe, and the other in Westport, Connecticut. In the past, she’s owned massive estates around Los Angeles.

          For this sale, Sigifredo Verano of Re/Max Town Center represented the seller, and Matt Epstein of Berkshire Hathaway HomeService represented Melissa Joan Hart.

            The 3 bed, 3 bath Studio City charmer boasts a stone-lined salt water pool, spa, hardwood floors, and sits behind an idyllic white picket fence. The kitchen impresses with stainless steel appliances and a connected eating area, along with convenient outdoor access.

            A perfect escape, the master suite includes a stunning master bath with a step in shower and spa tub.

                Jasper Hale has a new home!

                Actor Jackson Rathbone, best known for his role as vampire Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga, has just dropped $1.2 million on a family-friendly home in Studio City with a recording studio! Rathbone found a home that’s the best of both worlds for his life as an actor, musician and dad. He and girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi welcomed a son in 2012, and when Rathbone is not acting, he’s making music or touring with his band, 100 Monkeys.

                Property records show that Rathbone closed on the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2,500 square foot Studio City home on August 7, 2013 and the seller was Erez Eisen from the band Infected Mushroom.

                Rathbone’s new home sits behind gates on a large 10,000 square foot lot and has a great floor plan. The property’s highlights include a tropical-feeling pool, outdoor dining space, and a recently built professional recording studio that includes the voice booth. Inside the home, beautiful hardwood floors run throughout, french windows are in each of the three bedrooms, and a sizable den could be converted to a 4th bedroom.

                Rathbone sold his former home at 2651 La Cuesta Dr. on July 22, 2013 for $1,750,000.

                    Jensen Ackles, the undeniably handsome actor who plays Dean Winchester on “Supernatural” has sold not one, but TWO homes in Los Angeles! By the looks of the property records, Ackles sold his starter home in Studio City on February 15th for $700,000. He purchased that home in 2003 for $645,000.

                    More notably, Jensen and his wife Danneel Harris also sold an impressive spread at 134 Stonehaven Way on March 19th for $3,000,000. They purchased the home for $2,435,000 in September 2009, just a few short months before they became engaged. The duo married in Texas in 2010 and in the beginning of 2013, they announced that they are expecting their first child together. Jensen and Danneel are following the classic Hollywood playbook of giving their expanding family a fresh start in a new high-priced home.

                    Their just-sold home had 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 3,554 square feet spread out over a dazzling compound. The main house was elegantly updated with the finest touches, including soaring ceilings, a formal living room with custom library loft and a large, professional chef’s kitchen.

                      $4,575,000

                      Zack Greinke‘s golden arm is making headlines yet again. This time, it’s not for landing the starting pitcher a massive $147 million six-year contract with the LA Dodgers. It’s also not for being the culprit behind last week’s Dodger vs. Padre fight- one of MLB’s biggest brawls this year which landed him on the disabled list for eight weeks with a broken collarbone.

                      Instead, Greinke’s arm is on the spotlight again for signing off on a snazzy piece of West Coast real estate – a $4.6 million dollar, newly constructed Studio City compound. The Florida-born right-hander can now watch that dramatic bench-clearing fiasco on repeat in the comfort of his fabulous new California haven while recovering from his “war” wound.

                      Surrounded by the famed LA communities of the Hollywood Hills, Beverly Crest, and Sherman Oaks, Studio City is a happening Southern California neighborhood with an average for-sale asking price of around $1.3 million. With LA’s  inventory and new construction numbers relatively low, this 2012 newly constructed, seven-bedroom, 10 bath retreat comes as a breath of fresh air. With California craftsmanship seen throughout, the gated, two-structure compound delivers a cabin-like aura with unique architecture, an open outdoor floor plan, a wrap around porch, and sleek hardwood floors.

                      Located at the foot of a hill, the beautifully landscaped grounds made up of trees and shrubs give the property plenty of privacy. A fire pit, water fall, walking bridge, spa and two-tiered pool also add to the tranquil ambiance creating a uniquely peaceful LA sanctuary.
