Celebrity Homes For Sale in Hollywood and New York

The mansion Michael Jackson died in isn’t the only famous house currently on the market (for nearly $29 million). From Christie Brinkley’s Hamptons hideaway to Penelope Cruz’s Sunset Strip bachelorette pad, check out hot V.I.P. properties.

Michael Jackson

Asking price: $28,995,000

Location: Holmby Hills, California

If Neverland Ranch isn’t your thing, you can opt for the King of Pop’s more formal, 17,171-square-foot French chateau in the posh Los Angeles suburb of Holmby Hills. The property boasts seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, and 12 fireplaces, according to the listing. Built in 2002, the Richard Landry-designed abode also includes a theater, a wine cellar (and accompanying tasting room), an art studio, an elevator, and a gym with a spa. Plus, the new owner could possibly be haunted by Jackson himself since this was the home where the musical icon died last June. And according to public records via the Los Angeles Times, the CEO of Ed Hardy is the current owner. What more could a buyer ask for than a home of a singing legend and someone with a fondness for bedazzled tiger t-shirts?

Andrew Lloyd Webber

Asking Price: $19 million

Location: Midtown East, New York

Occupying the 59th and 60th floors of Manhattan’s iconic Trump Tower, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom lair spans 5,300 square feet and boasts “breathtaking vistas of Central Park from almost every room, as well as southern and western views that stretch as far as the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River,” according to its listing. The views from the famous composer’s apartment are astounding, reports The Telegraph. The eat-in kitchen has a window that overlooks Central Park’s ice skating rink during Christmastime and the master bedroom features “enthralling three-directional views” as well. There’s also a wet bar, wine cellar, and a “grand seating area” in the limestone master bath. We can only imagine the memories the Cats used that for.

Truman Capote

Asking Price: $18 million

Location: Brooklyn Heights, New York

With a hefty price tag of $18 million, Truman Capote’s former home is the most expensive listing ever for a Brooklyn abode.

Yes, this 9,000-square-foot, 11-bedroom and seven-and-a-half-bathroom Greek-Revival four-bay townhouse is the borough’s crown real estate jewel. With 11 fireplaces, a three-story elliptical mahogany staircase, and back porch and garden straight out of Gone with the Wind, “It's like living in a country estate in the middle of New York City,” Karen Heyman, the Sotheby's broker selling the property, told the New York Daily News. “It takes your breath away the minute you walk in.”

Cue visions of Brinkley reenacting her famous scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation now.

Uma Thurman

Stretching 25 lengthy feet along a beautiful, tree-lined Greenwich Village street, Uma Thurman’s gigantic five-floor, seven-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom townhouse is truly a sight to behold.

In late 2007, they pressed their luck and tried for $11,995,000. Now that the price has come back (closer) to earth and they’ve dropped their real estate agent, the ball’s in your court.

Asking Price: $7.5 million

Location: Greenwich Village, New York

The apartment of actress/model/singer Milla Jovovich also includes a roof deck with an outdoor shower, a fourth floor kitchenette (in case you get the late night munchies and don’t want to stumble to the first floor), and a front door that opens to a foyer/antechamber, which ensures nosy neighbors and/or delivery men won’t cramp your style. But if you want to live like this Resident Evil star, you better act fast—rocker Courtney Love recently rented the townhouse (listed at $24,500 per month) and plans on making it permanent. The Hole frontwoman tweeted this week, “MILLA I LOVE YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LEASING ME THE HOUSE WICH I KNOW IM GOING TO BUY, U ARE A GODDESS SUCCESS!YAY!”

Designed in a Renaissance style, the apartment is accented with oak trim and mahogany floors and also boasts high ceilings. But the best part of this space is that it will put you in the backyard of one of the titans of mobster movies: Robert De Niro.

Location: Toluca Lake, California

Twilight star Peter Facinelli and Beverly Hills 90210 actress Jennie Garth are putting their 8,416-sqaure-foot Toluca Lake home up for sale. According to the listing, the six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom house comes with a little Hollywood history: it was once owned by country singer-turned-actor Tex Ritter and was thus also the childhood home of the late actor-comedian John Ritter. The property also comes with a safe room, a gym, an outdoor kitchen, a swimming pool and spa (pavilion included). And lastly, it’s gated—presumably to keep out all the screaming Twi-hards looking for Robert Pattinson—but great for a non-vampire seeking privacy as well.

Freddie Mercury

Asking Price: $4,350,000

Location: Midtown East, New York

With its elegant beige décor and custom maple floors, you’d never guess that this pristine, 43rd floor apartment was once owned by none other than Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. But the flamboyant rockstar did once call this Midtown Manhattan co-op his pied-à-terre. Granted, all signs of Mercury—who installed floor-to-ceiling mirrors and silvery satin walls—are gone from the apartment, Curbed.com reports. The current owner tamed the residence after purchasing it from the late singer’s estate in 1992. Nevertheless, it still has vistas that will make “Fat Bottomed Girls”—or guys—go wild, boasting unobstructed views of New York City’s seven bridges, the Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building, according to the listing.

Asking Price: $3.9 million

Location: Malibu, California

Here’s your chance to live like James Bond.

Plus, Brosnan’s master bathroom actually comes equipped with a fireplace—the perfect way to woo a Bond Girl.

Penelope Cruz

Asking Price: $3,695,000

Location: Los Angeles, California

On the heels of her recent marriage to her Vicky Cristina Barcelona co-star Javier Bardem, Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz is unloading her Sunset Strip-area bachelorette pad. Described as “Balinese modern,” according to The Real Estalker, the exotic, one-story house has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, as well as bamboo floors, skylights, dining/breakfast areas, a pool, and, last but not least, an outdoor bed on the lawn… for those muy caliente nights, of course.

Jason Lee

Asking Price: $3,250,000

Location: Los Feliz, California

He may play a redneck on TV, but the home of My Name Is Earl star Jason Lee is a far cry from the trailer park. The Frank Lloyd Wright-esque property in the Los Angeles suburb of Los Feliz includes a 2,205-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a pool house and an office/studio space. Best of all, each of the three bedrooms opens up to terraces and patios that surround the house, which has gorgeous views of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory. The home, The Real Estalker notes, has a Hollywood history—in 2007, Lee bought it from three-time Grammy winning R&B artist Robert Cray for $100,000 more than he’s asking. Sounds like a steal.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher

Asking Price: $2.9 million

Location: Laurel Canyon, California

Surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and mere steps to the beach, this Mediterranean-style Laurel Canyon hideaway is a far cry from Sacha Baron Cohen’s famous character Borat’s run-down Kazakh village. With three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and a total 12,489 square feet of property, the comedian and actress’ gorgeous retreat offers plenty of comfort. Wide balconies deliver breathtaking mountain and ocean vistas, while the master bedroom is joined by a seating area and swanky bathroom with a fireplace and claw-foot bathtub, according to the listing. Survey says? Very nice!

Rue McClanahan

Asking Price: $2,250,000

Location: Midtown East, New York

Here’s your chance to live like the late Golden Girls star in this unique New York City co-op. The high-ceilinged, three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment overlooks private tennis courts and also features its own beautifully landscaped backyard, providing an oasis in the heart of bustling Midtown Manhattan. The property also reveals McClanahan’s fun decorative style—the door to the main office bears the sculpture of a naked woman and there’s a secret door in the pantry disguised as a spice rack that leads to a bathroom, Curbed.com reports. That Blanche—such a crafty one.
