From the article:
There’s a certain kind of luxury real estate in Los Angeles that passes from celebrity to celebrity. Take the Beverly Hills estate that Ryan Seacrest is in escrow to buy for $37 million from Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi. The gated compound in Coldwater Canyon includes a 9,200-square-foot main house, plus three guest houses, a swimming pool and koi ponds.
Perhaps its most valuable amenity: privacy. L.A. has ordinances that prevent new construction of high walls and hedges, which means there’s a limited inventory of homes that can keep prying eyes at a distance. The glitterati tend to trade them among one another.
Forbes just released its annual Celebrity 100 list, a ranking of America’s most powerful stars. With the help of Realtor.com, Trulia.com and others, we’ve investigated where these actors, singers and personalities bed down for the night. We included homes bought and sold in the past year as well as a few long-term nests of the stars. Perhaps not surprisingly, most are nestled in and around the Los Angeles area.
Many of the newest generation of Hollywood elite have been parking their newfound millions in property as well. Bieber Fever hit the real estate world recently when stories surfaced that Justin Bieber, No. 3 on the Celebrity 100, was angling to scoop up a Hollywood Hills lakefront Modern, crafted from glass, steel and concrete, for as much as $10.8 million. Turns out the home’s tenant, Ashton Kutcher (No. 51 on the Celeb 100), who had rented the 9,400-square foot home through tech startup Airbnb (in which he is an investor) following his split from Demi Moore, decided to beat his Punk’d partner to it. The “Two and a Half Men” star snapped up the hillside bungalow after the Biebs texted him while touring the house. “I had to buy the house because I thought he was going to buy it out from under me,” Kutcher jokingly admitted on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
That didn’t deter the 18-year old Canadian pop singer from buying something else however. Bieber is said to have recently settled on a 10,000-square foot Calabasas, Calif. home in the celeb-centric gated neighborhood, The Oaks, where the Kardashian clan resides and famous renters have included Britney Spears. Boasting six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two separate garages and an elevator, the home had been asking $6 million.
