    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.

    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.

          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!

Truly exceptional and one-of-a-kind from within and without – the architecture of this home seamlessly marries form and function.

                Clark’s Malibu retreat offers seclusion, privacy and serenity, but it still just minutes from the beach. Before his death at age 82 in April 2012, Dick and his wife Kari used this home as a weekend getaway.

                  If you ever wanted two of Hollywood’s most talented actors as your landlords – here’s your chance. The married Academy Award-nominated duo of William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are looking for someone to lease their Los Angeles home for $20,000 a month.

                  Purchased by Macy and Huffman for $3,800,000 in December 2012, the home has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4,566 square feet, a pool and amazing Los Angeles views. Another bonus? You’d could drop your rent check over the fence, because this for-lease place is right next door to the home William and Felicity have lived in since 1998.

                  Up a very private road, perched on a grassy flat pad with tree-top views, this single level mid-century-style home is the epitome of California living – casual and enticing. The focal point of every room is the sprawling backyard, sparkling swimming pool and panoramic views of Los Angeles. With 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and an attached guest suite, there is plenty of room for entertaining friends.

                  Macy and Huffman took great care to maintain the original characteristics of the home while undergoing a massive renovation that includes a shiny new kitchen, new bathrooms, a screening room, a separate office suite, a new sauna and spa, and contemporary bamboo and cork floors.

                    Two-time World Series Champion Barry Zito has just tossed his West Hollywood home on the market for $4,375,000!

                    Zito was just cut loose from the San Francisco Giants when his $126 million dollar contract expired after seven up-and-down years. Without a mound to stand on, Zito has turned his focus back to his bulging real estate portfolio, which includes this for-sale home, a massive property in the Sunset Plaza area of Los Angeles, and a San Francisco-area home that’s currently for rent for $28,500 a month.

                    A shrewd real estate investor, Zito knows a great house when he sees one. Zito’s West Hollywood gem sits on one of the most private and quiet Bird Streets above Sunset Blvd and is newly remodeled. And those views!  Zito’s place has the kind of views usually available only to the most elevated lots far above Sunset Blvd, but unlike those high-in-the-sky properties, this house is only about 3-5 mins away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

                    Listing agent Sharon Hills of Kobeissi Properties, gave us some inside intel on Zito’s property, saying, “he never lived here, but purchased it because of its location in the prestigious Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills, and the incredible views.”

                    The views range all the way from the LA skyline to the ocean and can be seen perfectly though the many walls of glass. Soaring ceilings and an open concept floor plan create a dramatic and spacious environment and most rooms open directly to outdoor terraces, perfect for entertaining.

                    According to the listing, which was first spotted by the Los Angeles Times, all bedrooms have their own bathroom, and the master suite sprawls across the entire top floor. A rarity in the Hollywood Hills, this home has an abundance of street parking and a designated turn around for easy access.

                      Superhero actor Chris Evans has just listed his rather ‘Fantastic’ home in the Hollywood Hills for $1,450,000.

                      Located at 2971 Briar Knoll Drive, the hunky ‘Avengers’ actor paid $1,260,000 in March 2007 for the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,386 square foot pad.

                      Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, Evan’s for-sale home has an open and spacious living room and dining room with hardwood floors throughout, vaulted beamed ceilings and tree top views. A gourmet kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and the master suite has french doors leading to a private deck with seating area, private spa, and luscious landscaping.

                      Those looking to spot Evans at the open house will be disappointed, since the actor hasn’t called this place home for almost a year. In April 2013, he decamped to a 3 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 4,599 square foot Mid-Century ranch-style pad nearby that he purchased for $3,520,000.

                      Evans will reappear on the silver screen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, set to be released in April 2014. In 2015, he’ll appear in the highly-anticipated sequel to the The Avengers, titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, where Evans will reprise his role as Captain America.
