Two Totally Different But Equally Cool Celebrity Homes Just Hit The Market

Two Totally Different But Equally Cool Celebrity Homes Just Hit The Market

Los Angeles is a city full of celebrities.  Since many are young and cool (suppose this is debatable depending on the celebrity) plus have a lot of money, you would expect that their homes would be as cool as they are.  Two new listings just hit the market recently that are definitely both "wow" homes.  Like the Owner's, the homes and their locations couldn't be more different, but they are both equally amazing in different ways.

Jennifer Aniston's Rumored To Be New Bel-Air Mid-Century Estate

Last night the real estate side of the internet was a buzz about the rumored purchase of this A. Quincy Jones designed (1965) estate in Bel-Air by none other then A-list celebrity and mid-century home aficionado, Ms. Jennifer Aniston. The property is still showing "active" on the MLS, but multiple websites, including TMZ, LA Curbed, and The Real Estalker are reporting that it is a done deal. If correct, Ms. Aniston has impeccable taste in real estate, as you will remember she just recently sold a Hal Levitt designed mid-century home in the Trousdale Estates for in the $37-$38M range.

I recently sold a house in Bel-Air (in a completely different tax bracket) and posted a blog giving readers a picture sneak peak behind the gates. I had this house in there, as what may possibly be my dream house, as I used to drive by it on the way to my appointments at my listing. I had a great virtual tour of this home in that post, but took it out, as it had the address of the home in the URL, and thought it would be wise to protect Ms. Aniston's privacy.

This particular property has been on and off the market since it was listed in '08 for $29,000,000. It was re-listed for $24,900,000 just before the 2011 Holiday's. It is on over 3 acres of real estate with ponds, meandering walkways, a guest house, and views out to the ocean. Did I mention it even has it's own vineyard! It is all about timing and finding that one buyer, as there aren't many people overall with the bank account that Ms. Aniston has. The sites are reporting that she picked it up in the $21,000,000 range. A fine deal for her. Also, congrats to the real estate agent's involved in a massive sale like this. Oh to dream of the commissions, ha.

Enjoy your new home Jen!
