    Eva Mendes is selling the Los Angeles starter home she owns with her ex-boyfriend George Gargurevich for $1,269,000!

    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.

    Their shared home is a dramatic and downright funky Mid Century home has 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 has 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 doesn’t live in this particular home – she owns a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home nearby that she purchased in April 2008 for $3.2M. Eva’s hunky boyfriend Ryan Gosling was spotted outside this particular home, squashing rumors that the duo were on the rocks.

      The estate of the late, great Dick Clark has just price-chopped his beloved Malibu hideaway by $250,000, bringing the price down from $3.25 million to $2,995,000.

      After two years on the Malibu housing market, this Flintstone-esque home atop a bluff got a price cut for the second time, as first reported by Curbed.  It came down $250,000 in the summer of 2013, and without a buyer in sight, the price has been reduced by a quarter million dollars once again.

      One of Malibu’s landmark properties, Clark’s stone home features unparalleled 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Boney Mountains, Serrano Valley, Los Angeles sunsets and sparkling city lights.

      This unusually imaginative architectural creation is nestled atop a mountain on eye-popping 22.89 acres and features 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, as well as breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Truly exceptional and one-of-a-kind from within and without – the architecture of this home seamlessly marries form and function. The interior space is extremely voluminous and features an expanse of glass to capture the views from every room of this home. Vaulted ceilings enhance the living room and dining room with its wood burning fireplace intimate seating areas. The master suite is at spacious and intimate. According to the listing agent, “this is art as architecture at it’s finest.”

      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.

        The lease is being represented by Ninkey Dalton of The Agency.

          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.

                  Ludacris just dropped $4.8 million on a spectacular modern home in the Hollywood Hills!

                  Property records show that this new home is a major upgrade for the actor and rapper, who sold a penthouse condo for $879,000 the very same week he bought his new multimillion-dollar home in the hills.

                  Ludacris took a serious hit on the condo he paid $1,030,000 for in 2007. After doing the math, it looks like Luda lost $151,000 on the sale.

                  Don’t cry for Ludacris, though. He’s now living in an incredible modern home with panoramic city views. With 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and nearly 6,000 square feet, he now has nearly every luxury amenity a buyer could dream of.

                  His new magnificent master bedroom suite comes complete with dual baths, huge dressing closets, a steam shower, soaking tub, fireplace, wet bar and private balconies with head-on views of the city, the Hollywood Sign and snow capped mountains.

                  The home is rounded out by an expansive home theater, infinity edge pool, volume ceilings, walls of glass, wine cellar, bar, separate maid’s quarters, two-car garage and off-street parking for up to seven additional cars.

                  In addition to his recent Hollywood Hills purchase and condo sale, Ludacris has a second penthouse condo for sale in the same building as his former condo and it’s listed for the very same price – $879,000. He also owns a grand $2.8 million property in Atlanta, Georgia.

                  Rande Gray of Keller Williams Hollywood Hills represented the seller and Maya Vander of Keller Williams Beverly Hills was Ludacris’ agent.
