Katherine Heigl lists Los Feliz home for sale
Rom-com queen Katherine Heigl has listed her Los Feliz home for $2.659 million. She shares the house with husband Josh Kelley and their two daughters.
According to property records, Heigl bought the home at 2226 N Berendo St, Los Angeles, CA 90027 for $2.55 million on the heels of her marriage to country singer Kelley in 2007. Heigl is best-known for playing Dr. Izzie Stevens on “Grey’s Anatomy” as well as her roles in the movies “Knocked Up,” “27 Dresses” and “Life as We Know It.”
Described as a “warm Southern colonial,” Heigl’s home has a gracious entry marked by white columns and a red door. Lush landscaping surrounds the home, and like many California properties, the home has plenty of indoor and outdoor living spaces, including a deck, patio and pool area with cabana.
The listing is held by Los Angeles real estate agent Dorothy Carter of Keller Williams Realty.
Pharrell Williams’ Miami apartment listed at $16.8 million
Hip-hop Renaissance man Pharrell Williams once described how living in his Miami penthouse was like living in a reverse fishbowl. He could look out below and see everything happening, but no one could see him. Well, now it looks like Williams wants a new perspective.
The producer/singer/writer/fashionista has listed his 9,000-square-foot penthouse duplex at 2127 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33129 for $16.8 million. The 39-year-old artist bought the place in 2007 for $12.5 million.
The apartment features stunning 360-degree views of south Florida’s big city and Biscayne Bay and has 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, terraces everywhere and its own swimming pool. Judging from pictures taken for the The Selby blog back in 2010, a lot of Williams’ incredible modern art and furniture collection has been set aside for staging purposes, but it’s clear the creatively gifted Williams made excellent use of the monstrous loft-like space to showcase his art collection, including pieces by Keith Haring.
It’s not clear exactly where the talented Mr. Williams is heading next, but while his apartment is being shopped around in Miami, he’s criss-crossing the globe to promote his new book, “Pharrell: The Places and Spaces I’ve Been,” by art house publisher Rizzoli.
P. Diddy, Usher’s Malibu rental for sale
What makes a home worth a $16.75 million price tag? Having superstars rent the place out is usually a good place to start.
This Malibu home was rented by both Usher and P. Diddy, reports the L.A. Times, although not at the same time. Sitting on 80 feet of prime beach frontage, the home was newly renovated with all the star-worthy amenities, including two master suites, sauna and a wine cellar that holds 462 bottles.
The 5,653-square-foot home looks more Cape Cod than So Cal, with gray shingles and a white picket fence. The home has 6 bedrooms and an additional detached two-story, 1-bedroom guest house.
