Arnold Schwarzenegger made a $65000 down payment on a house for his ex-housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena:Arnold Schwarzenegger made a $65,000 down payment on a house for his ex-housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena less than a year before he admitted to fathering her child. According to loan doents, Arnold made the "gift" payments in two installments from his own personal bank account one for $5,000 in April 2010 and one for $60,000 in May 2010. According to the docs, the money was used to secure a loan for Patty's house in Bakersfield, CA -- where she currently lives with Arnold's 13-year-old love child. The purchase price of the house was $268,000 -- so Arnold's down payment covered nearly a quarter of the total cost.
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.
Hines Ward NFL Dancing With the Stars Winner 12,000 sf 8 bedrooms 13 baths mansion for sale $7,500,000:Hines Ward, the NFL Pro Bowler Dancing With the Stars Winner architecture buff's mansion, listed his mansion for sale for $7,500,000. Ward achieved the "W Hotel" look he was striving for. And as far as size and scope, the house is standard-issue professional athlete: 12,000+ square feet, eight bedrooms, 13 baths, and two car garages (one with an apartment above, where Ward's mom currently lives). Reports of the home's location were understandably vague then; we now know it sits among the many other enormous houses on Sandy Springs' picturesque Riverside Drive. According to the listing, Ward has been in the house for less than four years. Given his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday, one wonders if this isn't the beginning of a career in real estate for one of Georgia's favorite Bulldogs.
