The Sweetgreen CEO picked up the Trousdale Estates residence from movie producer Roger Birnbaum. Birnbaum—who once served as the CEO at MGM—first listed the L.A.-area property last year for $34 million, a somewhat optimistic ask.

The grand midcentury modern estate was designed by architect Hal Levitt and built in 1958. Dubbed the Skouras Residence, the 8,000 square-footer has since undergone a series of high-end updates over the past decades. Interior designer Kelly Wearstler and her husband bought the home in the 2000s, and styled it to taste.

The open-concept main living area boasts a massive art piece of a fireplace crafted from marble. The unique fixture blends beautifully with original but refinished parquet flooring, and is the centerpiece of the home.

The living room flows seamlessly to the large formal dining room that is flooded with natural light from a seemingly endless series of windows, and glass doors that open onto the shaded outdoor dining area. The backyard is ideal for entertaining with a lush lawn and a swimming pool.

Tom Brady’s Brookline Mansion is on the Market for $39.5 Million

The Brookline property of Tom Brady and wife Giselle Bundchen is on sale for $39.5 million. The mansion was custom built for the Patriot’s star in 2015, and is stacked with amenities fit for a champion.

Over five acres of rolling fields and gardens sits their 9,716 square foot mansion. Guests drive up the circular driveway, and enter through the stunning foyer. From the foyer, guests can make their way through five bedrooms, five bathrooms/two half bathrooms, a wine room, a chef’s kitchen, a spa, a host of bright, gorgeous sitting rooms, and of course a full gym. Directly outside the home is an organic herb and vegetable garden, and a marvelous pool on the other side.

A short walk from the main home is a modern yet barn-inspired guest house. This zen addition includes a yoga studio, a full bath, and a sleeping loft.

The property also features a three-car garage, although the stoned carport is able to fit 20 additional vehicles for any events (or Super Bowl celebrations) the hosts might be throwing.

Directly adjacent to Brady’s land is the 9th hole of The Country Club.

All of this sweeping space and serenity still sits only five miles from Back Bay, making it the perfect getaway for a Bostonian at heart.

Ellen DeGeneres Sells Her California Beach House for $23M

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia di Rossi are no strangers to the ins and outs of buying and selling real estate, especially in the greater Los Angeles area.

So it’s no surprise the couple was able to sell this property significantly more than they bought it for. The couple picked up the Carpinteria beach house  in 2017 for $18.5 million. After living there for just over two years, they listed it in June and closed at $23 million—just a mil shy of ask. The home was on the open market for less than three weeks when the deal was sealed.

They did put some money into it, with a limited update that brought the home into a more contemporary era and improved the home’s feeling of transparency. The plank floors remain, but gone is the honey; most of the original glass remains, but the series windows that strongly associated the house with its c. 1980 vintage also vanished.

The house is fit to be a billionaire’s beach getaway, and features a master suite designed for two, although there are four bedrooms overall. It was cosmetics mogul Jamie Kern Lima who was entranced enough by the house and its remarkably quiet seaside setting to pony up the considerable funds to call it a home away from home.

But there’s something to be said about the modern multi-level home. It displays some amazing style and plenty of luxurious features. Best of all and it boasts incredible city and ocean views.

one-direction-star-harry-styles-unloads-l-a-home-for-6m2

Natural light is key to this home, as white walls and big windows can be found throughout the architecture. The central living area is a spacious open-concept great room with an entire wall of retractable glass panels for optimal indoor-outdoor living.

Even with all the impressive indoor spaces, the home’s best feature might be its outdoor living areas: rooftop terrace, and patio with a covered lounge and a swimming pool with spa.

Jackie O’s sprawling Martha’s Vineyard estate has listed for $65 million! The former wife of John F. Kennedy purchased the 340 acre property in 1979, and passed it down to the current owner, her daughter Caroline Kennedy.

Known as “Red Gate Farm,” the stunning oceanfront land includes more than a mile of Atlantic beachfront.

The LA Villa of Boxing Legend Sugar Ray Leonard Lists for $52 Million.

This summer’s increasingly hot real estate market looks to add another huge listing as boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard has placed his Los Angeles villa on the market for $51.99 million. This seven-bedroom Italian-style home sits in Los Angeles’ Palisades Riviera, spanning two acres of luxurious amenities.

The main residence is a 16,773 square-foot that boasts a span of luxury details. Designed personally for the Leonard family by renowned architect Richard Landry, the property immediately wows visitors with an entrance into a grand motor court, showing off an ivy-covered façade behind double gates.

The splendor only continues inside with the formal foyer that leads into the grand center hall. Beamed ceilings lead the guest through oversized living rooms, master bedrooms, and formal dining rooms.

A stone fireplace frames the master suite, and expands into a pair of balconies overlooking the sprawling greens. Further main-home luxuries include a solarium, six fireplaces, a center island chef’s kitchen, stone floors imported from Jerusalem, and a wide range of European-made furnishings.

As for the grounds, a number of additional structures dot the verdant lawns.

Joe Montana’s 500 Acre Ranch is Still on The Market

Joe Montana’s Napa Valley retreat is back on the market, with a substantial price cut. The legendary quarterback first listed the Calistoga estate in the late 2000s, asking nearly fifty million. The villa now sits at $28.9 million.

The house was constructed over half a decade in the late 1990’s and finished in 2003. Inspired by travels in the Mediterranean, the main house reflects French and Italian influences, and cites religious architecture from the area. It uses an abundance of other reclaimed materials from France as well—fireplaces, ironwork, mantels, marble floors, and the gates that mark the entrance to the property among them.

The interiors work with a huge amount of detail—with 9,700 square feet to fill, the designers packed in quite a few surprises. Stucco, limestone, groin vaults, carved stone are all featured on a tour of the heavily stylized residence. There are only three bedrooms in the house, so common living space is abundant throughout the property. Include is a fantastic 3,500-bottle wine cellar.

The property exterior is as stylized, and in many ways comes off as more spectacular and authentic. The Napa landscape makes an ideal canvas to engineer a lengthy series of Provençal gardens, while a pool with fountain jets, a secluded spa, and walkways support a most convincingly romantic conceit…complete with olive trees and grape vines. An extravagant guest house, stables, an indoor equestrian arena help fill out the 503 acres of grounds.

The property joins another property in the area also owned by Mr. Montana: an 87-acre horse ranch that is being offered for $3.1 million.

Frank Lloyd Wright Home Hits the Market FSBO

A Frank Lloyd Wright home just went on the market for $1.2 million. It is only one of three Frank Lloyd Wright homes remaining in New Jersey, built in 1951.

The property was formerly purchased in 2016 for $999,000. Surprisingly, the home was just put on the market as for sale by owner (FSBO). An unusual move for a historic home because of the many problems that may arise that come with older homes.
