This week, the stars buying and selling homes are nothing short of legendary. From beloved romance author Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills ranch, to Johnny Cash’s storied Tennessee lake lot, take a look at the luxury real estate exchanging hands.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s Tribeca Penthouse
(4 bed, 4 bath, 5,375 sq. ft., US$20 million)
BOUGHT: Curly-haired crooner Justin Timberlake, along with wife Jessica Biel, has just bought a loft in Tribeca, and it’s no smurfing joke. With over 5,000 square feet of living space, and featuring high ceilings, glossy walnut white oak and marble finishings, and a private key-turn elevator, this is one luxurious duplex. It’s also located in the same “paparazzi proof” building – a converted 19th century factory – that Harry Styles just bought in. Other star studded neighbours include Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, as well as Jennifer Lawrence, who reportedly rents out her unit for a pretty penny.
Jackie Collins’ Beverly Hills Ranch Home
(4 bed, 4.5 bath, 4,150 sq. ft., US$4.95 million)
FOR SALE: The family of late romance author Jackie Collins has just listed the last of her enviable estate – a picturesque ranch-style home nestled in Beverly Hills. Situated on a 0.89-acre lot, and featuring a gated entry and beautiful, park-like grounds, it’s easy to fall in love with this property. Inside features classic touches like high vaulted ceilings, master suite with fireplace, and master bath with spa tub and steam shower. It appears the Collins clan is in a selling mood – sister Joan put her Hollywood condo on the market just last week.
Johnny Cash’s Lakeside Tennessee Property
(4.5-acre lot, US$3.95 million)
FOR SALE: The storied lakeside property that was once home to Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash – and the site of many a legendary musical meetup – is now on the market, for slightly more than a song. The 4.5-acre lot includes direct lake access with dock, two-car garage, guardhouse and pool, as well as a one-bed, one-bath renovated cottage apartment that June used to use as a dressing room. The property does need a little TLC – remnants of the main house, which burnt down in 2007, still need to be cleared – and the seller is reportedly only considering offers from music lovers intent on preserving the property.
Beverly D’Angelo’s Spanish Hacienda
(5 bed, 4 bath, 4,045 sq. ft., US$2.8 million)
FOR SALE: Actress Beverly D’Angelo, best known for her role as Ellen Griswold in the National Lampoon movies, is looking to offload her lovely 1920’s-era Spanish hacienda. Located in Beverly Hills, this five-bed, four bath home has a lovely, sun-lit open interior with rustic vaulted ceiling beams and rich hardwood throughout. A covered porch leads to a brick-tiled courtyard with fountain, while the heavily treed lot provides lots of privacy when taking a dip in the pool. It’s certainly a step up from the Griswold family home, which actually still stands on a North Hollywood Warner Brothers lot.
