Kim Kardashian 4,000 sf $3.4 M Beverly Hills villa :Kim Kardashian currently owns a nearly 4,000 square foot villa in the Beverly Hills Post Office area purchased, in February 2010 for $3,400,000 according to property records. It was here at the front gate of Kim Kardashian's 5 bedroom and 4.5 bathroom mansion where some creepy "fan" showed up with his luggage and attempted to persuade the Kim Kardashian's private security detail he was meant to move in to the mansion during the taping of whatever reality program Kim Kardashian was scheduled to begin taping. It was this that alerted Kim Kardashian to seek out a new mansion that offers a higher level of security and a greater degree of privacy. Last week all us celebrity property gossips went wild about a nearly 7,000 square foot Craftsman-style mansion in the star-studded and guard-gated Mulholland Estates community near Sherman Oaks, CA that was widely and incorrectly reported to have been leased by the recently married and quickly divorced Kim Kardashian for somewhere in the neighborhood of $40,000 a month. It wasn't long after our discussion of the Mulholland Estates mansion before we received a covert communique that Kim kardashian recently twice toured an 8,000-plus square foot mansion privately situated behind the elaborate gates of a small and swank enclave high in the rugged mountains above Beverly Hills.
Miley Cyrus purchased a five-bedroom home in Studio City California for $3.9 million dollars:Disney star and Queen of Teen Pop Miley Cyrus bought herself a nifty 5,173-square-foot Studio City house, spending $3.9 million. The mid-century style house that she just added to the collection was built in 1952 and occupies a lot of 1.15 acres -- all walled and gated. The home in the Los Angeles neighborhood is listed with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, but that likely includes an attached guest suite. The main house has a large master suite with a sitting room and fireplace, a spa bathroom with steam shower, walk-in closets and a wall of windows that open to a view patio. Just don't expect to be able to see anything from the street. The most stellar feature of Cyrus's new ranch-style home is its H-shaped floor plan which sprawls across the landscaped property, creating privacy and great views for each area. There's even a separate, yet connected, guest unit on the other side of the two-car garage. At the center of it all is an expansive living room with hardwood floors, which opens up via floor-to-ceiling windows to a beautifully landscaped backyard with breathtaking panoramic views of lush canyons and a solar-heated pool and modern pavilion for poolside, al fresco dining. It's got party written all over it. There is a double-sided fireplace that connects the dining room and family room and sliding glass doors in the dining room that lead to a deck and covered patio. Cyrus, who is all of 19 and best known for her role as the title character in the Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana," already owns a compound in nearby Toluca Lake, Calif., that she purchased in 2007 for about $5.8 million. She also reportedly bought and sold homes in Florida within the past year.
Rihanna’s Home: A $6.9 Million Home Gone Bad:Rihanna has had some ups and downs of late. While her music career has seemed to continue to ascend, unabated, and her fame has continued to spread like wildfire, including her first starring role in the big-budget summer film, “Battleship”, her personal life has seen its share of ugliness. From a much-publicized domestic violence incident with fellow singer Chris Brown, to rumors of multiple rebound relationships, to problems with her managers and creative team, the “behind-the-scenes” action in Rihanna’s life, has been rather tumultuous. Back in 2009, before things started to get funky, she purchased a $6.9 million home in Beverly Hills. The stunning house boasted lots of glass, high ceilings, wood floors, and had a chic, modern feel that seemed like a perfect match for the then 21-year old singing sensation. Then the problems began. First came the relationship ugliness, which, in a nod to terrifically crappy police work by the LAPD, was leaked to the press. Then her house started to fall apart. The 10,000 square foot home boasted eight bedrooms and ten bathrooms. Stunning views of the valley below, floor-to-ceiling windows, a huge backyard with a pool, a tiled terrace, a stunning open-plan kitchen with all new fixtures, and a media room, among many other luxury amenities, made the house seem like the ultimate rock-star pad. Then the water started coming in. A lot of water. Like, a lot, lot, lot of it. She recently put the seemingly possessed house on the market for a significant reduction in price, and has filed a lawsuit claiming that the she was told the home was in excellent condition when she purchased it, and was not aware of the structural problems. These problems include a balcony that slopes strangely, and basically drains any rainwater directly into the house. Nice. The home is now on the market for a mere $4.5 million and is listed as a “fixer-upper”.
