    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.

        After dropping $40 million on Tom Brady and Gisele’s insane French Chateau-style mansion, Dr. Dre just listed his former home in the ‘Bird Streets’ of the Hollywood Hills for $35 million.

        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.

        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.

            Report: Ashton Kutcher Quietly Shopping Bachelor Pad For $12 Million

            Rumor Alert!

            According to multiple reports, including the Los Angeles Times, actor Ashton Kutcher is quietly shopping his sleek Hollywood Hills bachelor pad for $12 million.

            The ‘Two and a Half Men” actor bought the sleek hills pad two years ago, paying $8.455 million. 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 current (albeit spectacular) pad doesn’t exactly scream “family home.” It’s been rumored that Mila wanted to bring up baby in a more family-friendly home, thus why this home is now being quietly floated as an off-market listing.

            For a buyer looking for a bachelor pad-style home with every bell and whistle, this could be the perfect buy. 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.

            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. Without a home on the West Coast, this could Bieber’s second chance to own this killer pad.

              Just weeks after welcoming their first child, a daughter named Hazel, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have bought a new nest in Los Angeles.

              According to property records, the married actor duo closed on the home on April 23rd and paid $2,750,000 for a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,483 square foot remodeled, walled compound on a double lot.

              In true Southern California style, this house is all about windows and the stunning outdoor areas. A massive pool and spa is surrounded by stone patios, a covered lanai, flat lawn and garden.

              From the inside looking out, Emily and John’s new home has stunning canyon and city views. Other indoor amenities include a large cook’s kitchen with center island and breakfast bar that connects to the open-flow dining and living room areas.

              John and Emily’s new master suite features a luxurious bathroom and walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms and two baths are in a separate wing – plenty of room for baby Hazel and any future siblings!

              This property is John and Emily’s third home. They also own a weekend home in Ojai, CA that they bought in June 2012 for $2.15 million. Nearby in Los Angeles, they have a home in West Hollywood that they bought in 2009 for $1.857 million. That house is in the heart of Hollywood and Jimmy Kimmel lives right across the street!

                Detroit Lions star running back (and Kim Kardashian ex) Reggie Bush is selling his striking modern estate above the Sunset Strip for $6 miliion.

                Bush has been based in Los Angeles since his days at USC, where he was a star player and All-American. He even took home the highly-coveted Heisman Trophy, which he later voluntarily forfeited, after the NCAA uncovered misdeeds by the USC football program.

                Despite the college-era drama, Bush has gone on to a rock solid NFL career, playing with the New Orleans  Saints, where he brought home a 2010 Super Bowl championship.

                After a stint in 2012 with the Miami Dolphins, Bush is now based in Detroit with his fiance, Lilit Avagyan, and their new daughter.

                Back on the West Coast, Bush is selling the bachelor/party pad he picked up in 2007 for $4,700,000. He tried to part with the house in 2009, asking $5,099,000 for the blinged-out, hyper-personalized house. Five years and about 200 gallons of beige paint later, the colorless house has a higher asking price and a new look.

                Remodeled with the highest of quality finishes, the house features a killer chef’s kitchen, a state-of-the-art theater, an elevator connecting all three levels and a second story library/ loft.

                The grounds include a pool and spa, custom wood decks, BBQ center, professional landscaping and a lower level dog run.

                  Actress, comedienne and all around funny girl, Nicole Sullivan, is selling her beautiful gated estate in Los Angeles.

                  The ‘MadTV’ actress is asking $1,699,000 for her 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,444 square foot estate with a guest house and pool.

                  What’s not funny – she’s listing at a loss. She purchased the place in January 2007 for $1,810,000, so unless she gets way over asking for the estate, she’s going to lose some money on the deal.

                  Located at 3001 Passmore Drive in the hills of LA, Sullivan, her husband Jason Packham and their two sons called this French Country estate on a 30,000 square foot lot ‘home sweet home.’

                  The remodeled main house still retains vintage detailing from the 1920′s and boasts five bedrooms, all on one floor.

                  A converted ‘Chauffer’s quarters’ with a separate entrance is the perfect office or study.

                  Outside, meandering paths lead through rolling and flat lawns, mature lush gardens, organic planter boxes, and stone patios.

                  The pool area is adjoined by a covered cabana, perfect for al fresco dining and days spent outdoors with friends and family.

                  Perfect for visitors, in-laws, etc, a  separate 1 bedroom/ 1 bathroom guest house has views and enjoys complete privacy.

                  Sullivan also has another, smaller LA-area home that she bought in 2000 for $465,000.

                  Boni Bryant of Sotheby’s holds the impressive listing.

                    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.

                      Songstress Nicole Scherzinger, best known as the frontwoman of the girl group ‘The Pussycat Dolls,’ is selling the Hollywood Hills home she bought from Daisy Fuentes in 2006.

                      Scherzinger was at the top of her game a few years back, when the Pussycat Dolls were tearing up the charts. Since her days as a ‘Doll,’ she’s had some solo hits and a gig at the judges table on both the US and UK versions of the ‘X Factor.’

                      Reports have emerged that she just quit her X factor gig, but things are about to get really busy and exciting for Nicole. Just this week, reports emerged that she and boyfriend, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, were engaged!

                      On the home front back in Hollywood, Nicole is selling the 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 4,014 square foot Hills estate she bought from Daisy Fuentes for $2,165,000. Now listed for $2,349,000, Scherzinger is likely to eek out a small profit if she can get full asking price for the home.

                      The gorgeous Mediterranean-style home sits on a 1.5-acre knoll and has no immediate neighbors – perfect for a celebrity that craves a little time out of the spotlight.

                      There are expansive views from every room, many outdoor living spaces and plenty of space for a potential pool.

                      Inside, Nicole’s home has a 2-story living room with soaring ceilings, a spacious dining room, 3 gas/wood burning fireplaces, and a gourmet eat-in kitchen/great room combination with granite counters, stainless appliances and oodles of room for entertaining.

                      The generous master suite features an over-sized closet, ample storage and a stunning marble bath with separate stall shower. Guest bedrooms are located upstairs, one has a large outdoor terrace. Downstairs is an additional bedroom, which could also be used as an office.

                      This home offers outstanding seclusion and serenity within a star-studded neighborhood. Perhaps Nicole will keep the streak alive and sell to another celeb!

                      Enzo Ricciardelli of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
