Nicole and Joel House Hunting Again.

Ever since pin thin Tinseltown princess Nicole Richie and her baby daddy Joel Madden popped out baby Harlow, they've been widely reported to be bunking down in Glendale, CA where the Good Charlotte front man owns a 3,281 square foot, 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom home on the same street as brother Benji...who in an only in Hollywood twist of romantic irony currently dates Miss Richie's childhood bestie and beastie, Paris Hilton. But that's another story for another blog...

In early June the young parents were spotted hunting for houses on the San Fernando Valley side of the Hollywood Hills and today the lovlies at E! Online whispered to the world that on Wednesday Mommy and Daddy also spent some time checking out a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom house on bizzy Benedict Canyon Road in the Bev Hills P.O. The 1,919 square foot Cape-Cod style crib carries and asking price of $1,649,000 and listing information shows the walled, gated and nearly paparazzi-proof property, includes a fully outfitted kitchen with a Viking brand (electric cook top) range and Carrara marble counter tops, pre-wired plasma televisions, dee-lishus dark wood floors, stark white walls, and a swimming pool surrounded by a flag stone terrace.

What Your Mama wants to know is if there is a closet that can be fitted and kitted out to handle Miss Richie's impressive collection of sensationally large sunglasses. Bug-eyed bee-hawtcha seems to be giving Miss Elton John a run for her money in the sunglasses department, yes she does.

Anyhoo, the couple clearly want new digs to raise up that baby, so stay tuned because Your Mama is sure that'll when they do decide to bite the mortgage bullet, all the world's real estate gossips will be there to wag their tongues and pick apart the details.

The one picture of the yard lends a very Hawaii-ish feel to it. Don't ask me how...it just does to me. What do the interiors look like? Only 3 bedrooms? Maybe a bit too small?

I like the BHPO house. $1.6 is a great price for a house that looks great. Love the pool and landscaping. Would love to see interiors but if it's walled and gated...sign me up!

The home they are looking at doesn't seem big enough. I have no idea why they would want anything smaller than his Glendale place. I don't see anything wrong with that place on Hillcrest Ave., so why don't they just stay there. 1,919 sq ft won't be able to contain those 2 egos and a child.

His brother's house is 4,291 sq ft on the same street.

Cute place with many desirable aspects. As for space, if need be there's potential to expand outward and/or build upward, so no biggie.

Why would anyone care about this or them?

Shannon, to answer your question, because it's real estate pornography, that's why.

England is about to TANK !!!!!!!!

they are overrun with fraud, for example how a woman who makes 200k a year is able to buy a 4MM apt complex is beyond me.

Good video, so I guess a witch hunt is on the way soon where thousands of solicitors, brokers, lenders will get sued, end up in jail or worse.

My solicitor friends are already talking about fleeing England with what they have.

You can fleece people by 30-50% and get away with it but 90% ?

not even the governments can cover that up, the losses are way to big to the common man and he is pissed.

All I can say to the idiots who got greedy and caused their clients to end up in the streets.

GOOD JOB !!!!

how is the new lexus, jaguar ?

there is no doubt that very soon the london high end market will drop by half, maybe more ? when more and more fraud comes out on the news.

This is worse than the US.

no wonder, it looks like quite a deal for beverly hills p.o. standards flat lot, pool, grassy yards, walled and gated... shit find me one for that price and sign me up...

The house is priced for "Tear Down".

I would question if the exterior of the house is structurally sound.

Did You Know? said...

the landscape of the place is perfect. very beautiful landscape. i will copy the design if i have my own house

I think the owner of the Benedict Canyon house is Beverly Clark, the wedding designer, wedding product seller, etc.

OK Average Joe what the fuck is your point? So something goes terribly wrong with a depressing terraced house in Leeds. Leeds is like talking about Pittsburgh,the only thing it's famous for is producing the assholes who blew up the London Underground!
THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CELEBRITY REAL ESTATE AND WE DON'T GIVE A FUCK.
Go back to your don't panic site,keep filling your studio apartment with cases of Albanian canned tuna from costco and stop trying to make us all join in your end of days porno scenario.

Wealthy parents are taking their Rolexes, Aston Martins and diamond rings to pawnbrokers to pay private school bills and holidays as the credit crunch continues to bite.

Rich professionals are using their valuable assets as a returnable deposit, or 'pledge', to secure a short-term, no-questions-asked loan.

One pawnbroker reported a "significant increase" in the number of high-value items being pledged in the last year and noted repeated visits from some professionals.

Average Joe, Do you ever stop and READ the crap you write before you post it???

"Wealthy parents are taking their Rolexes, Aston Martins and diamond rings to pawnbrokers to pay private school bills and holidays"

STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

1. Why on earth do you go on "holiday" if you are broke?

2. Why on earth would anyone take their Aston Martin to a pawn broker instead of just selling the damn thing as a used car? I know..I know..you are going to say they needed the money in 3 days..like you ALWAYS do in your made up dumb ass scenarios.

Americans don't go on holiday. They go on vacation. Maybe average joe is from the UK.

Well it just goes to show you how bad it is getting out there.

This is the time of the guilded age well the 2nd one anyway

Tom Joyner is talking about it right now on PBS.

and when Tom Joyner is talking about it on PBS the crash is closing in very fast.

A $175 burger in NY
properties that have sky rocketed up 1500 % ?

Mansions that are selling for over 300MM ?

we are all in for a rude awaking

remember when the conservatives start talking about it the problem is really here and it is a matter of weeks before a change will take place.

so_chic_darling said...

Anyone who is having to sell the Rolex or the Aston Martin should not have bought them in the first place, these are the people who were not rich but wanted to live rich,they took out second mortgages on homes to buy trinkets and trappings of the rich. So are we to feel sorry for them?No.
When I go home to my small town in England it seems like everyone now owns a new Mercedes or BMW. When I asked my mother about it she says "they don't own them the bank owns them".Listen to your mothers children.

average joe = dumb a** said...

"A $175 burger"
"we are all in for a rude awaking"

No, you are in for a rude awakening by the waiter shoving a bill up your butt without lube if you were stupid enough to pay $175 for a burger.

Glad you can see humor in it, "Ed" (aka Average Joe).

You know what ?

I will be back when the next disaster happens in the meantime this is from another blog, the next bubble is the oil bubble


Bubbles are funny.

Until they aren't.

Let's look again at oil, where total world demand rose by... wait for it... a whopping 0.9% (YES, THAT'S ZERO POINT NINE PERCENT) over the past year, while world liquids and crude production increased slightly more than 1%. And yet prices per bbl. rose over 80% in the past year, and 697% since 2001. Pets.oil anyone?
