    Adding fuel to the fire of those divorce rumors, the New York Post is reporting that Beyonce was spotted touring a $21.5 million-dollar condo in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

    A new home for her, Jay-Z and baby Blue Ivy? Not likely, since this 4,054 square-foot pad is nearly half the size of the luxurious TriBeCa condo the Carter family currently calls home.

    According to the Post’s source, “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Additional sources also said that the fact that Jay-Z wasn’t there was a big red flag, since he “has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals.” 

    While many people say it’s just a matter of when, not if, they will split, Beyonce may be getting her ducks in a row and finding a new home.

    If it’s true and they’re no longer “Crazy in Love,” this New York City condo is definitely fit for “Queen B.”

    The magnificent Penthouse offers unequalled panoramic city and river vistas on one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. Every inch of this immaculate duplex reflects superior craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail and ultra-refined finishes at every turn, with a backdrop of stretching views of the Empire State Building, Highline, Hudson River and more from floor-to-ceiling windows.

    The custom-designed living space is complemented by a private 642 square foot, north-facing terrace that showcases stretching city sights. Completely renovated to perfection, this large, light-bathed 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath duplex penthouse was made for entertaining. With huge formal areas and the massive outdoor terrace accessible from both the grand living room and library, there is a  seamless flow for intimate barbecues and large-scale parties.

    A top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen faces south and west and is equipped with a breakfast area, white Cararra marble, Arclinea Italian cabinetry, Boffi fixtures, premium appliances including a Viking range with a vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

    Other highlights of this enviable residence are 9’2″ ceiling heights, charcoal granite and teak floors, teak wall panels and Venetian plaster walls, custom electronic shades throughout, stone tiles in the spa-like baths, a custom-designed staircase with an intricate bronze railing, and spacious laundry room with a full-size Miele washer and dryer, teak and stainless steel cabinetry.

    The sprawling master bedroom retreat is the piece de resistance with its spectacular views, massive teak closet providing loads of luxury storage, and opulent master bath with ribbed marble walls and Boffi fixtures.

    Perfect for Beyonce, the luxurious building has a 24-hour doorman and sits in a prized location, just minutes from West Chelsea’s best spots. 

    Will she or won’t she? Only time will tell.

      Sold! Ashton Kutcher Sells Glassy Hollywood Bachelor Pad For $9.925 Million

      Ashton Kutcher

      Most Known For

      'That 70's Show' and 'Two and a Half Men' star who is expecting a baby with fiance Mila Kunis

      Three stories, 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 9,385 square feet

      Price

      $9,925,000

      Ashton Kutcher just sold his sleek Hollywood Hills bachelor pad for $9,925,000!

      The ‘Two and a Half Men” actor bought the sleek hills pad two years ago, paying $8.455 million. In May 2014, it was rumored that he was quietly shopping it for $12,000,000.

      In 2012, he rented the pad for a rumored $50,000 a month for a couple months before officially making it his. At the time that he bought, he was recently separated from now-ex-wife Demi Moore and needed a new place to call home. Shortly after moving into his bachelor pad, Kutcher stepped out with former ‘That 70′s Show” co-star Mila Kunis. Two years later, the duo are engaged and expecting their first child – a girl!

      With all those life changes, Kutcher’s spectacular bachelor pad doesn’t exactly scream “family home.” It was rumored that Mila wanted to bring up baby in a more family-friendly home, and those rumors were confirmed when the duo snapped up a very family-friendly place in Beverly Hills for about $10,000,000.

      With a new family home and a baby due any minute, it was time for Kutcher to part with his former party pad. In the same vein,  Mila just listed her single girl spread nearby, asking $3,995,000.

      With their bachelor and bachelorette pad sell-offs in full swing, Kutcher’s glassy house had to go. The three-story home overlooks Lake Hollywood with fully retractable walls of glass. The floating dining room area opens to stunning views. The home also has a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, private screening room, bar area and gym/massage room. The striking master suite boasts ample use of glass and wood, magnificent views and a spa-like master bath. A variety of outdoor spaces include enclosed gardens, outdoor rooms, infinity pool, cantilevered decks and an open sky terrace.

      Fun Fact: Justin Bieber, who recently sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian, was very, very interested in purchasing the home in 2011, but Ashton swooped in and bought it out from under him. The buyer remains unknown, but with Bieber’s current issues with his neighbors, this could have been a good buy for the young bad boy.

        Mila Kunis is patiently waiting the arrival of her daughter with Ashton Kutcher, and while they wait for baby, she’s putting one part of her former life behind her. She just listed her bachelorette pad in the Hollywood Hills for $3,995,000.

        Mila had been cohabiting with Ashton in his glassy mansion for months, and just after they found out they were expecting, they bought a gorgeous Beverly Hills estate to bring up baby in.

        Mila’s single-girl spread was purchased by Mila on September 15, 2008 for $2,885,000. The home is an elegant Mediterranean compound with unparalleled views of Los Angeles.

        Seated on a private cul de sac, Mila’s beautiful compound has been completely redone from top to bottom, with no expense overlooked. With high ceilings, open floor plan and breathtaking panoramic views from every room, the 4,900 square foot, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home is ideal for entertaining.

        Custom and state-of-the-art, the house includes a Crestron security system, a high-end eight-seat home movie theater, spectacular sound system, and integrated entertainment enclave.

        The chef’s kitchen features subzero appliances and flows to an indoor/outdoor living room with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open to a cabana and seating area and expansive woodview-deck and pool/hot tub.

        Aside from her Beverly Hills estate with Kutcher, Kunis owns a condo in West Hollywood.

                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.

                  Supermodel and TV powerhouse, Heidi Klum, is saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to her stunning Brentwood estate. She just listed the 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 12,300 square foot property for $25 million. 

                  According to listing details, the Italian-style villa, completed in 1999, has been given the Heidi makeover—a complete renovation that revived and refreshed a front-row oceanview estate in the premier guard-gated community in Brentwood, located off bucolic Mandeville Canyon. 

                  Heidi recounts the first time she heard about the property, saying “when I first heard about this available property, I was a bit skeptical when I was told it had been empty for a long time. As a busy working mother with four young children, I was hoping to find a home that was essentially turnkey… I knew that homes that are unoccupied for any length of time do not always get the attention they need, and I wasn’t looking for a project.”

                  However, the Emmy Award–winning executive producer and host of “Project Runway” and judge on “Germany’s Next Topmodel” and the top-rated “America’s Got Talent” tapped her creative skills to transform the estate into a warm family home.

                  Heidi’s team of talented people worked extensively for over six months to replace every window, re-stain all the gorgeous woodwork, upgrade all the appliances and fixtures, design dream closets, build a master bath with views of the ocean and expand the garden.

                  The time, energy and patience poured into the restoration paid off. Heidi says, “by the time we finished, the house was as incredible as its grounds and views. Sometimes I sit in the garden, drinking my coffee, looking at the Pacific, and really feel it is a little piece of Heaven. I think others will love the house as much as I have.”

                  Set on 8.5 acres with approximately three prime acres of flat land, the grounds have an infinity-edge pool and spa, koi pond, formal rose garden, fountains, lawns, gazebos, rolling green for golf putting and driving, children’s playhouse and slide, secret gardens and hiking trails—all with unobstructed ocean views and complete privacy.

                  A perfect Los Angeles escape.

                    The dancing and acting dynamo that is Julianne Hough has just bought herself a new place to kick up her feet.

                    According to property records and The Real Estalker, Ms. Hough spent $1,943,575 for a house high in the Hollywood Hills that’s very reminiscent of her Nashville and country roots

                    With charming rustic chic ambience, Julianne’s new abode has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 2,101 square feet of living space. Just like Julianne, the house is a knockout, and the views will take your breath away.

                    Delivering exactly what a house high in the hills should have, the place has magnificent wrap-around views of city lights, far-reaching mountains and the famous Hollywood sign.

                    Inside, the light and bright home has a large chef’s kitchen with center island and top-of-the-line appliances, a step-down living room, a great master suite with a sumptuous bath. With perfect indoor/outdoor flow, the home has a lanai that flows out to a massive lawn and pool area.

                    Julianne famously dated Ryan Seacrest for 2+ years, and during their time together, she bunked up with him in the insane $37M compound he bought from Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. While it’s no Seacrest compound, Hough’s new bachelorette pad is a sweet spot for this rising star.

                      The rapper, producer and headphone mogul just inked a deal with Apple to sell the company he started with music industry legend Jimmy Iovine for $3 billion.

                      With all that extra cash, the already ballin mogul is now a certified billionaire with money to burn.

                      With the purchase of Tom and Gisele’s mansion, Dr. Dre is moving on to the ‘Next Episode’ and selling his 6 bedroom, 9 bathroom, 9,696 square foot home for $35 million.

                      Dre purchased the home on December 21, 2011 for $15,400,000.

                      According to the listing, Dre’s for-sale estate is “without question, the best View estate in the city.” Perched atop a promontory and gated at the end of a cul-de-sac, this home has a jetliner 300 degree vista with lights sparkling from downtown to the Pacific Ocean. With a flat, expansive, grassy yard, infinity edge pool – all overlooking the most striking views and setting in Los Angeles. Completely rebuilt in 2001, the sprawling home features a library/media, den, guest house, and wine cellar, all in total serenity and privacy.

                      LA super agent Kurt Rappaport of the Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.
