    Actress Yvonne Strahovski, best known for her roles on ‘Dexter’ and ‘Chuck,’ is seeking a buyer for her Mid-Century architectural home.

    Nestled on a tree-studden hillside in Los Angeles, Strahovski has completely overhauled the Post & Beam home since she bought it for $859,000 in August 2009. Brand new to the Los Angeles housing market, Strahovski is asking $1,119,000 for the updated home that sits at the end of a long, semi-private drive.

    The loft-style home has an open concept, where the living, dining and kitchen all flow seamlessly into one another. With an open floor plan and glass walls, the home is flooded with sunlight. High ceilings, wide-plank wood floors and the extensive use of stone and stainless steel create a modern aesthetic.

    Just beyond the floor-to-ceiling glass, the home has a private patio and garden area. Below the main floor, the property also has a permitted guest suite with a 1/2 bath, which is perfect for visitors or a gym or home office.

    Property records also show that she paid $2,125,000 in March 2012 for a 4 bed, 4 bath, 4,142 square foot Beverly Hills property.

      3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 3,262 square feet

      Just days after announcing their divorce, Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto have listed their shared Los Angeles home for $1,595,000.

      He’s best known for playing hunky Stefan Salvatore on Vampire Diaries and she’s known for her TV work in Army Wives and One Tree Hill. The actors met in 2007 on the set of the film Killer Movie and later married in a private ceremony in New York City in April 2011.

      US Weekly just announced that the duo are getting divorced after two years of marriage and via their reps, they said that they “have decided to amicably split and will continue to remain good friends.”

      As with most divorces, the community property has to be split or sold, and in this case, Wesley and DeVitto are choosing to sell the home they purchased together on December 29, 2011 for $980,000 and move on with their separate lives.

      One look at the place and you’ll wonder how anyone could be unhappy here. A fully restored 20′s Mediterranean Villa, Paul and Torrey’s home is perched above Beachwood Canyon and has a hedged perimeter for absolute privacy. The interior has a large rotunda entry, gorgeous vintage tile floors, a top-of-the-line kitchen, beamed ceilings and stone counters.

      Upstairs, the large master retreat is separated from the 2 additional bedrooms, which share a vintage-style bathroom. Outside, French doors open to a large flagstone, canyon-view terrace with fountain and garden areas.

        Keyshawn Johnson Tries To Speed Away From Justin Bieber with a Price Cut On Calabasas Mansion

        Price

        $8,495,000

        Former NFL star wide receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson is selling his sprawling Calabasas, CA estate for $8,495,000 - and he’s getting aggressive with the price chops to get away from his neighbor – none other than pop megastar Justin Bieber.

        Keyshawn definitely isn’t a “Bielber” and actually has a much-publicized feud with Justin, who peeds uncontrollably in his white Ferrari through their residential neighborhood while young children play in the streets.

        Johnson is sick and tired of living near Bieber, so he’s chopping the price of the home to move the sale along. Originally listed and then delisted in 2011, Johnson’s home popped back onto the market for December 2012 for $10.5 million. As Johnson’s issues with Bieber started to escalate, the asking price on his home started to drop. By February 2013, he’d chopped another $1.6 million off asking, but still couldn’t find a buyer. With his unruly neighbor continuing to cause him grief, Johnson decided to reduce the price yet again – slicing $400k off – bringing the home to its current asking price of $8.495 million.

        Unruly pop star neighbor aside, Johnson’s house is a custom gem in the celebrity-infested Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas. Nestled inside the gated “Estates at the Oaks” community, Johnson’s for-sale home sits on a huge 1.86 acre lot that boasts views and privacy. Inside, 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms are also joined by a chef’s kitchen, game room, spa, sauna, elevator and theater.

        The grounds of the estate include covered patios with an outdoor fireplace, sunken basketball/sports court, a pool with spa and expansive rolling lawns.

        Don’t mind living near the Biebs? Go ahead and put Johnson out of his misery and make an offer!

          Just A Year After Buying In Bel Air, Michael Strahan Sells For A $3 Million Profit

          FOX NFL Analyst, Former Super Bowl Champ, Current Co-Host of "LIVE! With Kelly and Michael"

          Price

          $11,000,000

          Michael Strahan is the man.

          Not only is his post-NFL career at an all-time high after he snagged the co-hosting duties on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” when Regis Philbin retired, he also just sold his Bel Air home for a $3M profit in an off-market deal.

          But here’s the kicker. He made the massive profit by doing NOTHING. You read that right – nothing!

          According to a source close to the deal, Strahan found a buyer willing to pay $11M for the the home he bought for $7.9M in May 2012. The ink is drying on the contracts and sale is about to close, and according to sources, the home’s an outdated “teardown” that will need to be completely rebuilt, but because it’s on an acre of land in a killer Bel Air location, it was worth the higher price.

          The Trulia Price Monitor shows that asking prices in Los Angeles are up 19.2%, and even higher in primo locations like Bel Air and Beverly Hills, so all Michael had to do was ride the market up and make some serious coin along the way.

          While Strahan enjoys life in New York and pockets the $3M profit, the unknown buyer is picking up a 5 bedroom, 6.5 bath estate on an acre of land. Built in 1926, the “teardown” features Mediterranean influences throughout, with courtyard entry, glass walls, theater and bar. Additionally, the home includes a gym, sauna, detached guesthouse and swimming pool.

          While it all sounds lovely, word is that the home’s new buyer will actually tear it down and put up a newer home on the prime piece of land.

            Chuck Norris is selling his house in Dallas.

            The first two “Chuck Norris Facts” are absurdly false and part of the internet meme that made Chuck Norris a household name to a new generation in 2005, and the last statement is definitely true – Chuck Norris has just put his Dallas, Texas home on the market for $1.2 million.

            The roundhouse-kicking martial arts legend and star of the hit TV show, Walker, Texas Ranger, is selling his gorgeous 7,362 square foot ranch home in the Northwood Hills neighborhood of Dallas. The home was built in 1975 and has since been renovated and expanded to feature 4 oversized bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 half baths, a large media room, a home gym with a Chuck Norris Total Gym (naturally), large patio off a sparkling pool, 3 car garage, and an 884 square foot detached studio.

            The property is registered in Chuck’s legal name – Carlos Ray Norris.

Without a buyer in sight, she took the home off the market and then relisted it in May 2013 for $4,750,000 – exactly what she paid for the estate. A buyer came knocking shortly thereafter, and Walsh finally sold the estate for $4,675,000.  While she didn’t take a massive loss on the stunning Spanish-style Los Feliz property, she did lose at least $75,000. Property records show the deal closed on June, 20, 2013.

                      The unknown buyer just purchased themselves a residence that features a large kitchen and family room that opens through French doors to beautiful garden with a spa, swimming pool and outdoor entertaining spaces. The main house is almost 6,000 square feet and has 4 bedrooms upstairs, each with en suite baths. In true Hollywood fashion, one bedroom is now a to-die-for walk-in closet. The gracious master suite has a fireplace, as does the den and the grand scale living room. The estate offers complete privacy and a circular drive way. A large 3-room guesthouse consists of 2 offices, a Pilates studio/gym and an updated bath.
