Your favourite celebs are seeking a fresh start this week, and moving some truly impressive real estate to do it – from Orlando Bloom’s post-Katy Perry pad to Sting’s change of Manhattan scenery, here are the luxurious star-studded homes exchanging hands this week.
Sting’s Central Park-Facing Penthouse
(4 bed, 5,417 sq. ft., US$56 million)
FOR SALE: British rock legend Sting and wife actress Trudie Styler, are moving up from one NYC penthouse to another. Of course, we use that term rather loosely, as it’s hard to top this truly spectacular, two-storey unit which boasts 10-foot ceilings, 360-degree Manhattan and Central Park views, and a roomy flagstone terrace in one of the city’s most coveted condos. Every detail screams luxury, from the rich wood-paneled office, all-white kitchen, and statement spiral staircase. You’ll need Fields of Gold to swing this purchase, though, at a whopping list price of $56 million.
Orlando Bloom’s Beverly Hills Abode
(4 bed, 4 bath, 4,000 sq. ft., US$7 million)
BOUGHT: Fresh off his breakup from Katy Perry, everyone’s favourite medieval elf has snapped up a gorgeously modern home in Beverly Hills. A mid-century masterpiece recently redesigned by famous architect Miguel Angel Aragones, this home features a sleek white aesthetic, shown off by a custom lighting system. In addition to the typical luxe goodies like a media room, pool, and amazing views, the master suite also opens into a private courtyard with outdoor shower. Hope it’s paparazzi-proof!
Lauren Conrad’s Pacific Palisade Estate
(5 bed, 5,900 sq. ft., US$4,995 million)
SOLD: Lifestyle guru and designer Lauren Conrad – best known as one of the OG cast members of teen reality shows Laguana Beach and The Hills – has finally sold her Pacific Palisades mansion, after first listing it in January of last year. This Spanish-style property – fully remodeled by Conrad herself – is full of chic details such as a subway-tiled bath with deep freestanding tub, outdoor pool and spa with waterfall, vaulted cielings, chef’s kitchen, and two outdoor patio spaces and built-in BBQ. Conrad listed the home, which is just part of her impressive So-Cal portfolio, with hubby William Tell after announcing the pregnancy of her first child.
