Celebrity Homes of the Week: Neil Diamond, Clint Eastwood, Mandy Moore, Ty Burrell, and Ricky Martin
Want your next real estate purchase to pack an extra-special punch? You’re in luck, with several celebs listing their one-of-a-kind pads for sale this week. From Clint Eastwood’s Spanish enclave to Ricky Martin’s Manhattan residence, check out the latest star studded homes trading hands.
Neil Diamond’s Whale of a Malibu Estate
(5 bed, 7 bath, 4,692 sq. ft., US$7.25 million)
BOUGHT: Sweet Caroline crooner Neil Diamond is returning to the Malibu area with the purchase of this ocean-side estate, located within the very exclusive Malibu Blue Whale Estate gated community. We’re sure he’ll enjoy this home’s stunning beach views, vaulted ceilings, spa and private infinity pool on his downtime – he’ll need a relaxing escape from his upcoming 50th Anniversary Tour, after all.
Clint Eastwood’s Spanish Pebble Beach Villa
(6 bed, 6.5 bath, 6,900 sq. ft., US$9.75 million)
FOR SALE: Looking for a home with all the flair of a Spanish monastery? The rustic “Hacienda Este Madera”, recently listed by actor Clint Eastwood, could be right up your alley. In addition to hand-carved wooden doors, clay tiles and fountain, the central courtyard is home to the statue featured in the Eastwood-directed Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We just hope she looks less creepy in the sunlight.
Mandy Moore’s Pasadena Purchase
(3 bed, 3 bath, 1.45 acres, US$2.56 million)
BOUGHT: The star of breakout TV hit This Is Us has come a long way from her start in early millennium bubblegum pop, plunking down $2.56 million for a mid-century-style Pasadena home. While it’s rumoured she plans to do some remodeling, its current state features some truly mod details, with wood and tiled flooring, indoor exposed fireplace, and palm-lined swimming pool. Don Draper would surely approve.
Ty Burrell’s Modern California Penthouse
(2 bed, 2 bath, 1,690 sq. ft., US$1.398,000)
FOR SALE: Everyone’s favourite Modern Family funny dad is looking to offload his Culver City condo, recently listing for just under $1.4 million. While this two-bed, two-bath unit isn’t exactly family-friendly, it does feature some gorgeous city and hill views, a 200-square-foot balcony, and open kitchen with caesarstone countertops.
Ricky Martin’s Upper East Side Condo
(4 bed, 4.5 bath, US$7.1 million)
FOR SALE: Singer Ricky Martin is looking to live La Vida Loca… somewhere other than New York City. The host of Australia’s The Voice recently slashed the price of his Upper East Side condo, which he first listed in October, down to $7.1 million from $8.4 million. But this swanky unit is hardly budget, featuring two master bedrooms and baths with six-foot tubs, walk-in closets, and kitchens outfitted with Italian Mulino Bianco marble. And with some truly lux amenities on site – including a top-notch fitness centre, pilates and yoga studios, squash courts, and game rooms – you’ll be looking as buff as Ricky in no time.
