Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez Slept Here Better Exterior

Where Desi Loved Lucy

“Lucy, I’m home!” You can almost hear that iconic television phrase wafting through the entry hall of this most classic of Beverly Hills mansions, which recently came on the market for a very reasonable (for the area) $6.985 million. It was the temporary love nest of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez back in the 1950’s, while they awaited another regal…

Notch's New House: Jay Z and Beyonce Almost Bought It

Update: This is now Notch’s new house. Minecraft founder Markus “Notch” Persson, made the winning bid for this outrageously luxurious Beverly Hills spec home. The asking price may have been $85 million, but Persson got it for a steal(?) at only $70 million. That’s pocket change for Persson who was recently bought out by Microsoft for $2.5…

1 Incredible New Pre-Fab Home Back Exterior

A Pretty Fabulous Pre-Fab Home

Sometimes the home I write about does not belong to a celebrity, it is the celebrity, as is the case with the new Blu Home model that was recently “placed” on a hillside lot on Kanan Road in Aguora Hills. It will cause you to rethink all the preconceptions you’ve ever had about pre-fab homes,…

Jackson Galaxy and the Amazing Cat Houses

Hollywood loves a good cat house, as we proved recently by absolutely packing the “Giving Shelter” event to raise funds for FixNation. Fifteen of L.A.’s top architects teamed up with My Cat From Hell‘s Jackson Galaxy to showcase some wildly creative cat shelters that I know my two kitty boyz would go crazy over. Coming…

Kim Kadashian and Kanye West Buy Hidden Hills Estate

Since I’m not a big Kardashian fan, I wouldn’t even be reporting on this if I hadn’t done a feature on this gorgeous Hidden Hills spec home more than a year ago. It’s been sitting empty for a long time, just waiting for the right buyer. At one time, Rupert Murdock, when he was considering…

We'll Miss Neil Patrick Harris Over in Sherman Oaks

It looks like singer/dancer/actor host Neil Patrick Harris and his family will be spending more time in their Harlem brownstone now, since they recently sold their traditional two-story home in the hills of Sherman Oaks. Long standing conventional wisdom about L.A.’s entertainment industry residents says that movie stars live south of Mulholland, and TV stars live north of Mulholland,…

Kesha Buys Bungalow Front Exterior

Kesha's Beach House Bliss

I’ve never paid much attention to pop star Kesha, but she recently closed a real estate deal that made me sit up and take notice. She bought a beautiful Spanish bungalow in Venice that is sweet, charming, and extremely well-designed. She did drop $1.65 million on it, which ain’t cheap (this is Venice, after all), but…

Buy the House That Jack Black Built

Buy the House That Jack Black Built

Who knew that comedic genius Jack Black had such good taste in architecture and design? The 1958 home that he and his wife, Tanya Haden, remodeled from top to bottom in 2006 is now on the market for  $2,899,000. That’s actually quite the reasonable price considering the home’s size, architectural integrity and location, just off Mulholland…

Jimmy Kimmel Lists Home With Amazing Taste (Who Knew?)

When you think of a home fit for talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, you might imagine the ultimate party pad with a state-of-the-art media room, beer tap, and perhaps a trampoline in the back yard, leftover from his Comedy Central The Man Show days. What you probably wouldn’t imagine is an uber-cool Hollywood Regency style…

Tiny Home of Mad Men's Vincent Kartheiser Bed Partially Elevated

Mad Men's Vincent Kartheiser Lists His Tiny House

The other day I was having a skinny vanilla latte with The Hollywood Reporter cultural editor and he asked me what was the most interesting property I’ve written about lately. I answered quickly: “I’m mad about “Pete’s” crafty little cottage in Hollywood.” It measures a mere 603 square feet, yet includes two baths, a walk-in closet,…
