Celebrity Homes of the Week: Chris Rock, The Weeknd, Trent Reznor, Ryan Seacrest, Cyndi Lauper

This week in celebrity real estate – some of your favourite artists are pulling up their roots, and selling off parts of their decades-long real estate portfolios. From Chris Rock’s SNL-era apartment to Cyndi Lauper’s Connecticut country house, here are the star-studded homes changing hands this week.

Chris Rock’s Brooklyn Carriage House

(2 – 3 bed, 3,300 sq. ft., US$3.25 million)

FOR SALE: Comic legend Chris Rock has long had roots in New York, dating back to the 90’s and his days on Saturday Night Live – but it appears he’s looking to make a move following his recent marital split. As a result, he’s listed this stunning early 20th century carriage house, located in uber-hip Brooklyn. This 3,300 square-foot space features a gorgeous brick and beam interior, vintage hardwood, stained glass door detailing, and 23-foot exposed-beam ceilings in the master suite and living area. A two-car garage and roomy terrace with built-in barbeque round out this historic property – this listing is nothing to laugh at!

The Weeknd’s Slick LA Pad

(9 bed, 11 bath, 13,000 sq. ft., US$18 million)

BOUGHT: The Weeknd is officially heading for the hills, scooping up this gargantuan Los Angeles property – and you won’t be able to feel your face when you find out how big it is. With a whopping 13,000 square feet, nine bedrooms and a guesthouse – plus neighbours like fellow Torontonian artist Drake and the Kardashians – he’ll be able to throw one heck of a party.  Featuring a light, airy interior and rich hardwood, this luxury pad is outfitted with the usual bells and whistles such as a wine cellar, home theatre, and music lounge.

Trent Reznor’s Rockin’ Beverly Hills Mansion

(5 bed, 4 bath, 4,317 sq. ft., US$5.75 million)

FOR SALE: Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is trying his luck at selling off his Beverly Hills estate – the second time it’s been listed since 2007. This very private, gated property includes some truly stunning features, from the infinity edge pool with canyon views, to the two-storey living room, gourmet kitchen, and luxurious stone master bath.

Ryan Seacrest’s Upper East Side Apartment

(7 bed, 8 bath, 11,000 sq. ft., $75,000 / month)

RENTED: Permanent TV fixture Ryan Seacrest is moving to Manhattan for his latest gig hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan, and he’ll be crashing in a truly spectacular inner-city apartment – and at a very roomy 11,000 square feet over six storeys, we don’t think he’ll feel at all cramped. Located in the Upper East Side’s gilded Lenox Hill, this rental – which Seacrest could permanently make his own for $1,275,906 – has a high-speed elevator, 30-foot high vertical garden, wine cellar, and glossy white marble finishes.

Cyndi Lauper’s Connecticut Country Colonial

(3 bed, 3.5 bath, 3,885 sq. ft., US$1.25 million)

FOR SALE: Turns out, Connecticut’s not all that fun – 80’s musical icon Cyndi Lauper and husband Dave Thornton have put this majestic French Country colonial back on the market for just over a mil and a quarter. Full of exquisite 19th-century-inspired details such as hand-stencilled walls, fixtures sourced from England, stone fireplace, and vaulted ceilings, we’re sure its new owners will enjoy visiting, time after time.
