David Hyde Pierce $ 6,300,000 New York Home:David Hyde Pierce picked up an ocean front property in Amagansett, NY in mid-May of 2010 for $6,300,000. Lo-ward have mercy butter balls, we should all be so damn lucky as to be essentially unemployed and still able to spend six and some million smackers on a beach house that will likely be used, at best, 6 months of the year. Misters Hyde Pierce and Hargrove join the wealthy masses who schlep out to the Hamptons each summer weekend for a bit of rest and relaxation and end up tearing their hair out over the drama and hysterics required just to buy a damn lobster roll at Loaves and Fishes in Sagaponack or a burrito at La Fondita in East Hampton. Fortunately for Misters Hyde Pierce and Hargrove, their new digs are just a hop, skip and a jump€“or a not entirely safe bike ride€“from one of Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter's favorites summer lunch locales, the road side Clam Bar at Napeague where all good things come deep fried and the waiter people always bring our long bodied bitches Linda and Beverly cool bowls of water. Mister Hyde Pierce is most widely known, of course, for his long running role as the mincing, fussy, and annoyingly persnickety psychiatrist Dr. Niles Crane on the once popular now defunct sitcom program Frasier. In addition to earning him boo-coo bucks, Mister Hyde Pierce's role also earned him numerous accolades including 5 Golden Globe nominations, 2 Screen Actors Guild awards (plus another 10 nominations), and 4 Emmys (plus another 7 nominations). A quick look-see at Mister Hyde Pierce's resume on the IMDB shows that he really didn't do much before Frasier and hasn't done much since Frasier ended in 2004 after 11 successful seasons. Your Mama imagines that well educated Mister Hyde Pierce€“he graduated with a double major from Yale€“has nary a financial need to do a damn thing but sun his buns on the back deck of his new house in Amagansett for the rest of his life iffin he doesn't want to. Such are the beauty of residual checks that will keep fattening Mister Hyde Pierce's bank accounts as long as reruns of Frasier are played day and night on every half cocked cable channel on the boob toob. Mister Hargrove, who hasn't worked on anything in the business of show that appears on his IMDB resume since 2003, wrote and produced several sitcoms and pilot programs including Caroline in the City, Titus, and Wanda at Large. Listing information Your Mama was able to tease out of the interweb shows the gay guys' very 1970s contemporary crib is nestled into the gorgeous and rolling dunes of Amagansett on a .67 acre parcel with 110-feet of pristine and prime ocean frontage. Listing information also shows the single story dwelling, surrounded by naturalistic, no maintenance shrubbery and vegetation, measures more than 4,000 square feet and includes 3 bedrooms and 4 full poopers. While there's little more pleasant€“and enviable€“to Your Mama then an decoratively under-done beach house where guests will not be whispered about or lambasted by the hosts for dragging sea salt and sand into the living room, Misters Hyde Pierce and Hargrove's new beach hut could use a wee bit o' updating and upgrading. The living/dining room, anchored at one end by a fireplace, is an amazingly voluminous space with an unobstructed ocean view and a sharply pitched and vaulted ceiling that resembles a big, upside down boat. A long row of floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that blur the edge between indoors and out wraps around the back wall and open to a wide, sunbathing deck that runs the length of the back of the house. A covered dining deck makes a lovely open-air shelter from the elements that can include scorching sunshine and downpours from the dramatic thunderstorms that rush in during the summertime. A sandy path winds through the rugged, windswept dunes to the beach.
Kristen Stewart’s Home: A $6 Million Mansion Simply Because She’s Bella:The property that overlooks the Stone Canyon Reservoir is 2,604 square foot and is made up of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a pool, spa, gazebo, laundry room, a large living room, a massive kitchen, stunning windows that take up entire walls in every room, a 1,440 square foot guesthouse with two bedrooms and an additional bath, a terrace, a wrap around deck on the second floor, a media room, high ceilings, and hardwood floors. The property originally sold for $2.95 million and they rented it for $22,500 per month. After moving out, it went back on the market for $5.995 million. Apparently, the new price, is the “Twilight” inflation rate. The double-edged sword of fame must be quite familiar to Kristen Stewart. Though she has been appearing in movies since she was a child, and had already earned rave reviews for her work in projects like, “Panic Room” and “Speak”, it was not until she was cast as Bella Swan in the “Twilight” franchise, that she became a total superstar. Though the quality of her performance as Bella has divided fans and critics wildly, there is no denying that the role has made her a household name and drastically changed her life. Professionally, it has meant that she can take on more interesting roles, like her recent performances in “The Runaways” and “Welcome to the Rileys”. Now that the series has completed filming, she has already generated buzz with upcoming roles in such projects as “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “On the Road”. Personally, it has meant that she and her costar/boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, very rarely get any downtime or privacy. They are relentlessly scrutinized, reported on, blogged about, and interviewed, and fans follow their every move. So, it would only make sense that the two actors would look for someplace out of the public eye to live. For a few months last summer, the two actors rented a Bel Air mansion tucked away in the hills that was nearly impossible to get to unless you went up the clearly visible winding driveway, or scaled a rather steep flower-covered reservoir face. They put the house back on the market during the winter, and it went on sale for double the price for which it was originally listed.
Hollywood famous focker sold his massive Hollywood estate : Ben Stiller meets Jason Statham:Ben Stiller’s house in the Hollywood Hills, at least the smaller section, is 4,062 square feet and sits on roughly a 1/3 of an acre of land. The house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It has Spanish-styling with a twist. Ben Stiller’s house has large French doors that open onto a wrap-around terrace. The terrace features seating that is built around trees that grow up through the terrace itself. There is also a swimming pool, lush greenery, high ceilings, stucco walls, red tile flooring, and lots of sunlight. Ben Stiller’s house is truly gorgeous, and as he seems to be making a move to the East Coast, it will be interesting to see if he can find something to match the beauty of his former digs. Ben Stiller is one of those Hollywood-types that manage to remain busy at all times. Whether he is writing a film or series, directing a project, producing someone else’s project, or starring in a film, he is almost never still. To date, he has worked on over 50 films (more films than years he has been alive), and he seems to be a rather good box office draw, as his projects have made an average of $73 million per film. He dropped out of college to pursue a career in performance and comedy full-time, and booked his first professional role in the Broadway production of “House of Blue Leaves”. He began writing, directing, and producing “mockumentary” style shorts around this time, and the success of some of his short films led to an offer from “Saturday Night Live”. He chose to leave “SNL” after four episodes, to focus on short films, and was almost immediately offered his own show on MTV. Though his show’s ratings were lackluster, the series went on to win an Emmy Award. He then shifted his focus to directing film, and the rest, is history. He has worked on a steady string of successful comedies, and recently turned his hand to producing web content with the Yahoo! series, “Burning Love”, a spoof of “The Bachelor”. He also decided to sell off his massive compound in the Hollywood Hills. The first, and larger, section of the compound, sold to action star, Jason Statham, in 2011 for $7.32 million. Mr. Stiller and his wife sold the smaller section in April 2012 for $2.6 million.
