Encontrarse con una celebridad no es inusual cuando se recorren las calles de Los Ángeles.

Con el paso del tiempo, lugares como Malibu y Pacific Palisades, han sido incluidos en la lista de zonas preferidas por las celebridades, atraídas por su magnífica ubicación, cercanía a la playa y sus impresionantes vistas. Esta situación ha sido muy bien aprovechada por empresarios del sector turístico, organizando recorridos guiados por las calles donde viven los artistas. Algunos de estos tours son:

Inside Supermodel Molly Sims’ Beverly Hills Home

Molly Sims recently told Lonny that she’d rather “buy a couch than a dress.”

5qwMrXcMKK8x

In the magazine’s profile of the famed supermodel, Sims describes her longtime love for design and her honing of a personal style she calls “a good balance between eclectic and conservative.”

GzN6b4xtvzYx

Sims and her husband Scott Stuber live in a colonial-style home in Beverly Hills, California, which Sims redecorated with help from interior designer Kishani Perera. Notable design choices includeChristopher Farr drapery, vases by En Soie, and tie-dye pillows by Perera, as well as baby furniture and accessories from 3 Sprouts, Aden + Ananis, and Rikshaw Designs. The couples boasts an impressive art collection that ranges from Slim Aarons photography to prints by Damien Hirst.

In addition to her California home, Sims has properties in Paris, Cabo San Lucas, the Hamptons, and Manhattan. “When I bought my apartment in New York, I couldn’t afford it, but I’ve never been able to afford anything I’ve bought,” the  author of the Everyday Supermodel told Lonny.

As far as her property collection goes, Sims is not quite through. She is quoted as saying that she and Stuber are “never done” buying homes, so we suspect that she’ll be adding to her cache of real estate gems once again very soon.

Channing Tatum Drops $6 Million for New Beverly Hills Digs

channingtatum_bhpo4-e1424462106264.jpg.pagespeed.ce.96xZmyTtsC

Word on the street is that Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum has just plunked down $6 million for a sweet new single-family in Beverly Hills.

The Magic Mike star—whose new oddball sci-fi flick with Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending, is reportedly a regrettable flop—bought the 4,853-square-foot, Cape Cod-style abode with his wife and former Step Up co-star Jenna Dewan-Tatum, via a trust from Mexican filmmaker Roberto Sneider.

The three-story residence—which Carrie Fisher (a.k.a. “Princess Leia”) once called home—showcases a spacious living-dining room combo with double-height ceilings and six baths, not to mention a black-and-white eat-in kitchen outfitted with marble countertops and custom-tile flooring.

To boot, there’s a trio of en suite guest rooms (one with a fireplace), and not one, but two master suites: one on the top level, and one on the main floor originally touted as a game room/den (perhaps a space reserved for baby Everly?).

Most of the rooms on the first level open to various terraces and decks that overlook the estate’s grounds (teeming with trees and shrubbery), which also house an amorphous swimming pool and spa, accompanied by a trellised, stacked-stone fireplace.

The haven is located in the well-to-do Post Office area, whose current A-list residents include Demi Moore and One Direction singer Harry Styles.

America’s Most Expensive Home Lists at $195 Million

1-FEAT-FRONT-702x468

By Elena Dimarco

A sprawling Beverly Hills estate, complete with its own vineyard, recently listed at $195 million, making it the country’s most expensive home.

The Mediterranean-style compound developed by Mohamed Hadid is called Palazzo di Amore (“Palace of Love”), a breathtaking villa nestled on 25 acres, possessing (practically) every architectural and design luxury known to humankind. The most stand-out feature of this marvelous property is “the combination of amenities,” said Joyce Rey in an interview with Haute Residence. She and Stacey Gottula are the listing agents.

“I have seen many of these [amenities] in other homes, but not all of them in one place,” she said. “It really is impressive.”

Besides the property’s triple-digit price tag, other jaw-dropping features are a private waterfall; gorgeous, twin-curving staircases; spacious-beyond-belief dining and living rooms that open onto the grounds; a chef’s kitchen with a commercial walk-in refrigerator; and views of the iconic Los Angeles canyons, city lights, and ocean. Outdoor recreational facilities include a swimming pool, spa, outdoor barbecue area, and tennis court. The six-building house can accommodate a high volume of guests, as it provides garage parking for 27 cars and has parking for up to 150 cars on-site.

The newest addition to the estate is a 15,000-square-foot entertainment complex that includes pristine pools lined with majestic, 70-year-old olive trees; a discotheque/ballroom with a state-of-the-art laser light system and revolving dance floor; a bowling alley; and a 50-seat theater with a dressing room for live stage shows (in addition to movie screenings).

The home’s stunning architecture is credited to Bob Ray Offenhauser, and Alberto Pinto is responsible for the outstanding design features, which incorporate rich textures, fabrics, and tiles, as well as exotic furnishings. Palazzo di Amore’s main residence is over 35,000 square feet; there are 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, and the master suite, alone, is 5,000 square feet. The home is well protected, having three sets of double gates, and a “security guard house.”

The home’s current owner is real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene, who bought the property in 2007 and has invested tens of millions to complete and expand it. He also had his wedding there, according to Joyce Rey. Joyce Rey and Stacey Gottula are no strangers to the real estate industry. The ladies set the national sales record in 2010 when they sold Le Belvedere, another Mohamed Hadid estate, in Bel Air for $72 million. Ms. Rey is also known for making the “highest sale ever” recorded in 1978, when she sold the former Sunny and Cher estate for $4.2 million (an astounding price at the time).

“It shows you the tremendous advantage of investing in residential real estate in the United States,” she said.

Jennifer Lawrence Buys Jessica Simpson’s Beverly Hills Abode for $7 Million

Jennifer Lawrence's new home

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence—who starred in The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle— has scooped up Jessica Simpson‘s Beverly Hills home for $7 million.

The five-bedroom, six-bath Hamptons-inspired traditional—whose former residents include Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Hogan, and Hollywood powerhouse Rick Yorn—was custom-built in 1991, and recently renovated by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. Simpson reportedly bought the Hidden Valley property in 2005 for $5.275 million.

The Kerry Joyce-designed house has crown and base moldings, high ceilings, and 5,500 square feet of living space, with a commercial-grade kitchen boasting a stainless steel sink and expansive wooden top.

The home’s charming dining room overlooks a garden, while its central living area boasts a fireplace and multiple sets of French doors, allowing for sweeping views of the outdoor grounds. The master suite—which opens up to a terrace—is fit for the Hollywood star, with its overstuffed, luxurious bed, opulent chandelier, cozy sitting area, and glamorous dressing table. The home also features a media room, where Lawrence can watch recordings of the Academy Awards.

Jennifer Lawrence—who recently suffered the embarrassment of having hundreds of suggestive photos leaked online—will surely appreciate the privacy of her beautiful new backyard and tree-lined lap pool. Another highlight of the enchanting outdoor space is a courtyard with ivy-laden walls, plantings between pavers, and a beautiful koi pond and fountain.

Action Film Star Bruce Willis Finally Unloads His Beverly Hills Manse for $16.5 Million

Screen-shot-2014-08-26-at-3.56.19-PM

After over a year on the market, “Die Hard” star Bruce Willis has finally unloaded his gated Benedict Canyon estate for $16.5 million.

Though close to 20% less than his original asking price of $22 million, the 59-year-old actor—known for starring in blockbuster hits such as “Pulp Fiction,” “The Fifth Element,” and “The Sixth Sense”—still stands to makes a significant profit off the sale, given that he acquired the 10,379-square-foot property in 2004 from producer Alan Ladd, Jr. for just $9 million.

The stunning eight-bedroom, 11-bath, Spanish-style residence sits on close to an acre of landscaped grounds alongside a tennis court, a large resort pool surrounded by a wooden deck, and a unique indoor courtyard and fountain.

Striking a balance between old world charm and modern convenience, the home’s well-appointed living space boasts a state-of-the-art screening room; a library; a chilled wine cellar; and a gourmet chef’s kitchen equipped with an eight-burner stove and a massive island in the center of the room, making it an ideal spot for entertaining.
