Billy Joel’s Home: A $15 Million Mansion Now For Sale:Singer and songwriter Billy Joel has done fairly well for himself over a career spanning almost 50 years in the music industry. But maybe things aren’t going as well as they seem for Mr. Joel – unless he has another reason for selling his palatial Miami estate for just under $15 million. There’s no word yet on exactly why Joel is deciding to move out – maybe it was an altercation with his neighbors Cher or Lil Wayne? Anyway, Joel bought the house back in 2006 for $13.5 million, so at least he isn’t taking a loss. Here are some pictures of the 8,881 square-foot mansion, right on the ocean. Maybe you want to put in a bid?
Where is the island house from The Thomas Crown Pierce Brosnan Rene Russo Affair?:Do you remember the 1999 Pierce Brosnan, Rene Russo art-heist movie The Thomas Crown Affair? Thomas Crown is the most badass rich guy in movie history. Some day my dream is to basically recreate his entire life, complete with a private jet, Bentley, mansion in New York City, a ton of cool expensive toys and perhaps most importantly, an absolutely amazing Caribbean island getaway. I’ve always wondered where the Thomas Crown Affair island house was located. The Thomas Crown Affair island house is located on the French Caribbean Island of Martinique. The house is located in the southeastern area of Martinique within the district of Le Vauclina directly above the Baie du Vauclin and overlooking the island “ile Petite Grenade”. The house’s long, winding driveway shoots off of a dirt road called Anse Maroquet. The house’s exact longitude and latitude is 14.568032,-60.829931. Just cut and paste “14.568032,-60.829931″ into Google or Bing maps and you will be taken directly to the house. Not much is known about the owners of the house. The property has apparently been owned by the same wealthy family for over 5 generations. The family is one of the original people to settle on the island in the 17th century. Ever since the release of the movie, local real estate and travel agents have been bombarded with requests to rent the property but so far none have been accommodated.
Jennifer Aniston $21 million Bel Air CA home: A-List actress Jennifer Aniston reportedly paid $21 million for this ultramodern Bel Air, CA home 18 images Looks like it's time to update the Celebrity Real Estate Heat Map: A-lister of A-listers Jennifer Aniston has reportedly scooped up new mansion for herself in Bel-Air, Calif. The pristine 8,500-square-foot four-bedroom was designed in 1965 by noted Los Angeles modernist architect A. Quincy Jones; after first hitting the market for $29 million in 2008, the house was reduced to some $24 million, at which point Aniston swooped in and scored it for even less: $21 million. The pool looks elegant and modern in keeping with home's overall style. And as if this lucky lady didn't already have enough of them, here are yet some more perks: more than three acres of land, views of the city and ocean, a pool, a guesthouse, acellar, andlast but certainly not leasta vineyard. Let's not forget to look inside: those distinctly midcentury-feeling interiors boasts gleaming wood floors, full-wall expanses of glass, and some pretty stunning fireplace detail. The living room comes with a lovely view of west Los Angeles. Aniston's had quite an impressive year in terms of real estate. The actress listed and then sold her spectacular Ohana estate, a Beverly Hills beaut that was once featured on the cover of Architectural Digest. She swiftly found another Beverly Hills estate in which to shack up with new beau Justin Theroux. Let's not forget her East Coast accommodations, either: her new SoCal new pad is located just a plane ride away from her nest overlooking Gramercy Park. In short: life looks pretty fine when you're her.
