Aguilera Voices Her Love of Mulholland Estates
Singer Christina Aguilera has found a replacement for the Beverly Hills estate she recently sold for $13.5 million after two years on the market: It’s a $10 million Mediterranean-style home inside the famous Hollywood enclave of Mulholland Estates where the former judge for “The Voice” will be shacking up near the likes of Paris Hilton and Charlie Sheen.
Aguilera’s new 11,000-square foot home sports 6 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms and was good enough for former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof, who rented the place during her divorce and home sale.
If you want to know how to make Aguilera smile, it might be the saltwater pool that graces the double lot’s private backyard.
Law & Order & Real Estate
“Law & Order: SVU” star Christopher Meloni is flipping out. That is, he’s now looking to sell the 4-acre estate he just bought last August. The busy actor and long-time Connecticut resident just relisted the property on Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan for $4.75 million.
Meloni has given the place a Hollywood set designer makeover, gussying up the 5-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home with newly refinished floors, a custom home office and a few other upgrades. The property also includes a pool and large barn suitable for storing up to 6 cars.
Pulitzer Prize Price Drop
The estate of flowery and bold designer Lilly Pulitzer at South County Roadd in Palm Beach, Fla., just saw its list price get whacked from $11.5 million to $8.5 million.
Nicknamed “The Jungle,” the home has been on the market for two years, attracting no offers yet on the 1.4 acre, non-waterfront lot in the Estate Section of the posh ZIP code. With notice that the parcel could be sub-divided into two lots, there’s a chance that this old-money fashionista’s estate could get cut to shreds should the next owner decide to maximize the property’s value.
