A Little Monday Mish Mash

The long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Listings spilled the celebrity real estate beans about how professional baseballer Barry Bonds sold his 17,000-ish square foot mock-Med mansion inside the guarded gates of the (in)famous Beverly Park development in Beverly Hills* for $22 million, a bit more than 10% less than the $25 million he originally wanted.

*Beverly Park is, more specifically, in the Beverly Hills Post Office and not in Beverly Hills proper, fact we're sure some of the children will be sure to remind us in short order and with no uncertain terms.


Long divorced Tinseltowners Larry and Laurie David sold their once happy marital compound in Pacific Palisades, according to celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ, for $12 million. Mister David, in case an of y'all are curious, long ago moved to another house in Pac Pal and ex-Missus David moved to a house she custom built nearby.


The kids at Curbed reported that Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan slapped a $2.795 million price tag on a cacophonously decorated house in L.A.'s Beachwood Canyon.


Recently engaged Reality t.v. star Lauren Conrad recently listed a six bedroom house she owns in Laguna Beach, CA for $2.795 and picked up a new, cliff-top spread for $8.5 million. (Yes, children, we too were cowed with surprise that this gal in her late 20s can afford an $8.5 million house. However, hunties, turns out she's not just young but very rich and currently also owns a Beverly Hills penthouse  and a multi-million dollar house in Brentwood, too. Who knew? Anyways...)


The hardworking property gossips at Luxury Listings NYC were the first to reveal that Rolling Stone Keith Richards and his downright gorgeous wife, Patti Hansen, picked up a $10.5 million duplex penthouse co-op on lower Fifth Avenue in New York City. To be honest, children, this property gossip would seriously consider giving up a limb or a lung to own this place.


The veteran property gossip at the L.A. Times reported, among other tidbits, that actor Jared Padalecki of the t.v. series Supernatural, sold his 1920s Spanish style house in Studio City (CA) for $2.4 million.


Even though pop music darling du jour Pharrell Williams recently re-listed his Miami Beach penthouse for $10.999 million—up from $10.9 million according to the folks at Zillow—it's still painfully below the $12.525 million he paid for the glassy, 9,000 square foot aerie back in 2007. It's also more than six million clams less than the in hindsight wildly optimistic $16.8 million price tag he slapped on the place back in November 2012.

Patti Richards may not have to give up a lung or limb to acquire the place, but she has to climb into bed with Keith at the end of the day. As our Mama Dearest might say, think about that for a moment.

Let's see...

Bonds -- Time wounds all heels;

David -- Disney goes suburban;

Keenan -- "'s creepy & it's kooky, mysterious & spooky..."

Conrad -- surprising such a well-heeled young lady settled for such a shitty looking ring;

Richards -- My Left Nut;

Padalecki -- Quite charming, really;

Williams -- another coat of lipstick on the pig.

Who bought the Bonds horror?

Is that house to the north of it which usually goes as Reba McEntire's house actually hers?

Or is it perhaps Avi Arad's?

David Hoberman, the film and television producer, co-creator of Monk, is selling his ugly-looking house in Pacific Palisades.

Not sure if it has anything to do with how much real estate she buys, but Lauren Conrad's parents were loaded before she showed up on the teevee.

Hi Mama, any updates on if sold and who bought Owlwood, Fleur de Lys and Singleton manse?

The Singleton mansion is still marked as "pending" by Redfin...

Hasn't the deal been finalized by now?

I, too, am interested in those three properties, Ad Guy.

What can be written about Keith Richards that can't be said with a photo of him. Wild man with one shoe tip chronically scuffed and those crazy feathers and beads. Gotta love 'em.

I stumbled on some pics / floor plan. Adore that alfresco terrace off the kitchen. Cheerful and bright. Love that picture hanging system.
