A few days ago I had written a post regarding celebrities taking losses on the sales of their homes. The most recent victim is Madonna who sold her opulent New York City apartment for $16 million dollars when she had originally listed it for $23.5 million. Even though Madonna has not lived in the apartment located at 41 Central Park West she had lowered the price to $19.95 million but took a much lower offer for $16 million. She had originally purchased the 14 room Central Park Apartment back in the 1980’s.
Tom Hanks and Wife Rita Wilson have placed their 6,289 square foot house in the Pacific Palisades up for sale for $5.25 million dollars. The house, located at 956 Corsica Dr, Pacific Palisades was originally purchased by the Hollywood power couple at the time of their nuptials in 1988.
Jodie Foster has placed her home in the Hollywood Hills up for sale for $6.4 Million dollars. The luxury home located at 9219 Flicker Way, and based upon the MLS, this Spanish Villa is a refuge for those seeking the ultimate in privacy, security and style. A shaded walkway introduces this inspired home boasting 4 BD, 4 full BA, 2 half BA, office, and attached guest suite. A step-down LR immediately draws your attention, w/ a cathedral ceiling, French drs, FP, and Century City view. Off the FDR, a butler’s pantry leads to a center island KIT w/ stone counters, Viking stove & dual sinks. The lower level of the home is comprised of a BR/OFC suite and an impressive screening/family room w/ a rounded bay window & FP. The central courtyard pool & brick patio are shielded by a high-reaching hedge for utmost discretion. A luxurious master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closets, FP & sauna. Spacious second BRs enjoy charming balconies & verdant views.
Darren Criss of Glee fame, purchased a new home in Los Angeles for $1.2 million dollars. The house, originally built in 1950, the designer-inspired mid-century abode was all his as of November 2012, according to property records.
