When one thinks of motor homes, this isn’t exactly what comes to mind. With $30,000 worth of leather, $100,000 – $125,000 worth of technology, a $20,000 bathroom and $100,000 granite countertops spanning over 1,200 square feet, you won’t find this luxurious two-storey mobile mansion at your neighborhood trailer park. If so, where because I’m moving in.
This place Will Smith calls home while on set is so sick it’s nicknamed “The Heat.” HGTV highlighted it on their series, Celebrity Motor Homes. The coolest part is when it expands to give even more room inside. If you like what you see, reportedly, you can rent it for a reasonable $9,000 a week. Check out all the wicked features and amenities in the video below.
It’s been a while since I featured a celebrity home and what better way to return than with an apartment so gorgeous it’s featured in Elle Decor. Cameron Diaz shows off her completely renovated Manhattan West Village apartment in the October 2013 issue. Just like the Bad Teacher actress, I have an affinity for shiny sparkly things. She credits it to her Cuban roots. LOL. “I’m surrounded by things that mean something to me. That’s what a home is,” she tells the publication.
Check out photos of her glamorous abode designed by esteemed interior designer Kelly Wearstler. If you watched Bravo’s Top Design, you’ll remember her on the judging panel and for her ever-changing hairstyles and impeccable style. “I’m really going to miss those four-hour-long meetings with Kelly. I got to look at, touch, and talk about beautiful things,” says Diaz. Hard life indeed ;)
Even though Joe Manganiello plays a werewolf on True Blood, he prefers his digs more modern than rustic in real life. The 36-year-old actor just purchased a new home in Los Angeles, specifically off Nichols Canyon. The home isn’t what I expected from Manganiello, but I assume he’ll add his own personal touches once he’s moved in. The pictures below reflect it being staged by the selling realtor and previous owner.
In a sign of the economy on the upswing, Joe paid 2 percent above asking price of $1.79 million, shelling out $1.826 million for the 1963 mid-century home which was updated to reflect more of a spa-like retreat. The 2,422 square foot house has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with a spacious outdoor space complete with fire pit and built-in barbecue. It’s a great place to entertain during those warm summer nights. Check out Joe’s new digs below.
Carlos Santana hit it big in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but the 65-year-old musician is a modern man. He just purchased a $6 million modern home down the street from his existing Summerlin South estate. This placed is jacked up and could easily fit on the Las Vegas Strip. The ultra-modern home is equipped with the latest in technology and features high ceilings. The place even has its own putting green. Check out Santana’s new digs below. It’s definitely an oasis in the Nevada desert.
In this week’s edition of celebrity real estate, I chose everyone’s favorite House Bunny, Anna Faris. The 36-year-old actress recently shelled out $3.3 million on a Hollywood Hills home with her husband Chris Pratt. With the happy couple moving to a new residence, they’ve put their previous home on the market.
Also located in the Hollywood Hills, Faris and Part have listed the 2,500 square feet home for $2.2 million. The mid-century house was purchased by Anna and her first husband, Ben Indra back in 2005 for $1.99 million. My favorite feature are the floor-to-ceiling windows that open to private gardens and pool with fire pits and fountain. I could relax there for hours. Check out their 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom abode below.
For the past few months, I’ve shared a different celebrity home each Saturday. Compared to ones I’ve previously featured, I was expecting a lot more when I read that Jim Carrey sold his Malibu home for $13.4 million. It’s nice, but given the price I was hoping for something jaw-dropping. Clearly, in this case it’s all about location, location, location. Homes along the Malibu coast are a hot commodity and go for a premium.
Carrey first listed the property for $18 million back in 2011. The Dumb and Dumber actor re-listed it last year for $13.95 million. With the attractive lower price, Carrey received close to his asking and sold for $13.4 million. Still a nice profit, considering he paid only $9.75 million back in 2002.
Compared to other Malibu mansions, it’s on the smaller side, so I’ve read. It measures in at just 2,866 square feet and boasts 3 bedrooms and 4 baths. The indoor space beautifully flows into an outdoor deck and patio all of which are facing the Pacific Ocean. Check out the 51-year-old actor’s recently sold abode below.
Adam Richard Wiles better known as Calvin Harris just shelled out $7 million for a gorgeous mansion in the Hollywood Hills. I should probably say resort instead of mansion. With its zen-like details and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking an infinity-edge pool, it looks like a five star spa resort. Where do I make a reservation? I could spend hours chatting with friends beside the stunning fire-pit lounge.
The Scottish DJ’s new abode has a main and guest house. The former measures in at 4,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms, a sleek chef’s kitchen and a modern living room. The guest house is a 2-storey structure with a separate street entrance. Check out this week’s featured celebrity home below.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Katy Perry unloading her medieval castle-looking home she purchased when she was married with Russell Brand. Even though it hasn’t sold as of yet, the 28-year-old singer has purchased new digs adding to her real estate empire. According to The Real Estalker, Perry bought three adjoining parcels of land for a total of $11.2 million. One of which houses a beautiful modern mid-century home.
Compared to her other property, this Hollywood Hills home is much more up my alley. It was built in 1953 and has a beautiful open floor plan. It’s not huge by any means and comes in at 2,916 square feet and boasts 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. My favorite feature is how the floor-to-ceiling windows can fully open to seamlessly connect the indoor living area with the gorgeous outdoor space. Check it out below. Hope you enjoy this week’s celebrity home.
