The celebrity real estate news this week is that country singer Leann Rimes and actor Eddie Cibrian bought a home in Hidden Hills and Matthew Perry sold his modern Hollywood Hills home.
Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian snag deal on Hidden Hills home
The first person to break the news that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian bought a new home? Cibrian’s ex-wife and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville, who tweeted about the couple’s new “mansion” in early January.
Rimes didn’t respond on Twitter, but it turns out Glanville was right about the purchase. The Los Angeles Times reports that Rimes and Cibrian bought a new home in Hidden Hills for $3 million in late December 2012.
The $3 million price tag represents quite a deal for the couple. According to property records, the home was a short sale, first listed on the MLS for $6.195 million in 2009 and marketed at $4.2 million right before the home went off the market.
The Spanish-style estate was built in 2005 and measures 8,642 square feet with 8 bedrooms and 6 baths. Typical of most California estates, the home embraces indoor-outdoor living, with full windows, French doors leading to patios and plenty of outdoor seating. The 2-acre property also includes a pool and detached guesthouse, but don’t expect Glanville to be staying over anytime soon. Glanville and Cibrian divorced in 2009; soon after Cibrian and Rimes married, leaving no love lost between the pair.
Matthew Perry sells modern manse in Hollywood Hills
Matthew Perry may have retired from his day job on “Friends,” but he’s kept busy dabbling in real estate. After listing his West Hollywood apartment in August 2011, the actor purchased a home with ocean views on the Sunset Strip. Later that year, Perry listed his main Los Angeles residence for $5.69 million.
The home is dripping with luxury — from its sophisticated, modern design to glass walls and a home theater. The 4,100-square-foot estate also has exceptional city and canyon views.
Perry originally purchased the home for $4.47 million in 2008. The house was built in 1955 but reportedly underwent a renovation led by architect Scott Carty in the mid-’90s.
The Massachusetts native moved to L.A. at age 15, and his acting career grew from there. Perry has appeared in several hit films including “The Whole Nine Yards” and “Fools Rush In,” but his claim to fame is undoubtedly the 1990s TV comedy “Friends.”
While the Hollywood Hills West community won’t be seeing Perry in the neighborhood any time soon, the celeb can be seen appearing on NBC’s “Go On.”
