    “American Pie” screenwriter Adam Herz is selling his custom Los Angeles home for $3,995,000.

    Rich and successful after “American Pie” became a hit film franchise, Herz’s road to Hollywood started when he wrote his first screenplay, originally titled East Great Falls High,  over a winter ski vacation in 1998. It was based on his high school years in East Grand Rapids, Michigan. It sold for a reported $650,000 in 1999 and became the film American Pie.

    15 years and 8 “American Pie” titles later, Herz is sitting pretty in Hollywood and living the life in an incredible Sunset Plaza home that just hit the market for nearly $4 million.

    Decorated by Peter Dunham and published in Elle Decor, Herz’s contemporary home has amazing views upon entry.

      Ahmet Zappa, the actor, musician and famous progeny of legendary rock guitarist Frank Zappa, has listed his contemporary Hollywood Hills home for $1,175,000. The home made an appearance on the market in 2010, but it never found a buyer.

      Three years later, Zappa and his wife Angeleno Shanna Muldoon (sister of Patrick Muldoon) are still trying to sell their quintessential post-and-beam one-story home.

      Located on a quiet street in the Hollywood Hills, the home sits just above Runyon Canyon with southern exposure to optimize natural light and views of the city, mountains and Hollywood sign. Walls of glass merge the indoor and outdoor spaces.

      Interior details include maple hardwood floors throughout, a chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counters and spacious master suite with ample closet space. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,468 square feet of living space.

        If you’ve been “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” you no doubt recognize Bruce Jenner’s son Brandon and his wife Leah, who joined the crazy Kardashian crew for latest season of the must-watch reality show.

        Brandon is the son of Bruce Jenner, a former gold-medal Olympian and Mr. Kris Jenner, and Leah is the daughter of Eagles musician Don Felder. Together, Brandon and Leah have a musical duo aptly named “Brandon & Leah.”

        We’ve been “keeping up” on Brandon and Leah and we’ve just learned via property records that the duo purchased a rundown Malibu teardown for $1,455,000 on July 16, 2013. Touted as a “Malibu dream lot property,” Brandon and Leah’s new home is an amazing 2 acre property located in secluded Ramirez Canyon with scenic views.

        A drive up a country road leads you to the property’s original 1,900 square foot cottage surrounded by a brick patio with lovely gardens and rustic fire pit. While the existing home isn’t impressive by celebrity standards, the lot has great existing landscaping and breaktaking ocean views, making it the primo spot for the Jenners to build their dream home.

        Michelle Cohan of Rodeo Realty represented the sellers and Gayle Pritchett of Pritchett-Rapf & Assoc. represented Brandon and Leah in the purchase.

Features include an open floor plan, a spacious master suite, sizable custom windows, 3 fireplaces, 2 balconies with stellar views, 2 patios, a terraced backyard, high ceilings in the living room, a custom kitchen, hardwood floors, a separate laundry room and finished large bonus space.

The duo’s 2012-2013 divorce got nasty, with her hubby suing her for allegedly hiding assets and substantial funds from her acting gigs.

The home is held in both of their names and media reports on their divorce settlement say they’re splitting the proceeds from the sale.

              Eriq La Salle — best known to most of the world as Dr. Peter Benton on the hit TV Show “ER,” just banked some cash money on the sale of his longtime estate in Los Angeles. La Salle bought the Beverly Hills home at 1460 Laurel Way back in 1988, the same year he appeared in the Eddie Murphy movie “Coming to America,” for a mere $1.7 million, and he just closed on a deal to sell it to an unnamed buyer for $6 million.

              He had originally asked an ambitious $7,950,000 when listed the home in January 2013. He eventually had to drop the price to $6,495,000 before he eventually snagged a buyer for $6 million even.

              According to TMZ and sources close to the deal, Eriq is selling because he wants to downsize and doesn’t need a giant crib anymore.

              The Tuscan-style home was entirely overhauled by La Salle in 2006 and has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 6,000 square feet, incredible 180-degree views, a pool, spa, and full guest house.

              Inside, open living spaces feature a copper fireplace, formal dining room, gourmet chef’s eat-in kitchen, temperature controlled wine cellar, weight room, impressive wood paneled office, and floor-to-ceiling retractable walls of glass that create a seamless indoor/outdoor entertainer’s paradise. A Moroccan-inspired master suite takes up the entire top floor and includes a spa-like bathroom and adjacent lounging area. A 400-square-foot, private rooftop deck–with outdoor shower and hot tub–completes this remarkable property.

                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.

                  2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 1,789 square feet



                  Desperate to shed his former life in Los Angeles, Ryan Reynolds has just re-listed his home high above the Sunset Strip for $1,599,000. The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 6 years, Reynolds is ready to part with the place at a $116,000 loss so he can be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.

                  This isn’t the first time Reynolds has tried to end his relationship with this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.

                  It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an initial asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market, until today, where it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2 years later, market conditions are in Reynold’s favor and he’s much more likely to sell the home.

                  The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.

                  Annie Challis of Keller Williams is representing Reynolds as his listing agent.
