Thursday Pick Up Sticks

So snitched the long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living, new parents John Krasinski and Emily Blunt dropped $2.575 million on a walled, gated and recently refreshed contemporary crib on a double lot high above Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles, CA, in which to bring up baby. They already own a gated home above the Sunset Strip and a weekend getaway in Ojai.

The property gossip lady at the L.A. Times reports today that pop star Pink sold her former home in Sherman Oaks, CA, for $3.218 million. As far as Your Mama knows the Pink-Hart family—she's married to off-road truck racer Carey Hart and they have one small child—reside in Malibu where in the fall of 2011 they paid $11,850,000 for a spacious gated abode in the Point Dume area.

According to peeps at The New York Post Fashion designer Derek Lam and his partner in business and life, Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann‚ sold their sophisticated, three bedroom New York City duplex for $5.25 million, quite a bit less than the $6 million they originally wanted. (Fun tidbit: Rihanna rented in the building but no longer does.)

In other low-profile celebrity real estate news, the Observer let the cat out of the bag about actress Heather Matazzaro listing her dollhouse-sized Midtown Manhattan studio apartment for $315,000.

Your Mama dissed and discussed Detroit Lion Reggie Bush's triple-story party house high above L.A.'s Sunset Strip back in late 2009 when it was listed for $5,099,000. It's since had a makeover—or a make-under, depending on how one looks at it—and, we first read in the L.A. Times, was re-listed for exactly $6,000,000.

The long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living also revealed earlier this week that comedic actress Nicole Sullivan—she starred on MadTV and later popped up on the regular as a dim-witted dog walker on the sitcom King of Queens—listed her quirky mini-estate in the Hollywood Hills for $1.699 million, a bit less than the $1.81 million she paid for it seven years ago.

In case you missed it, British blues musician Joe Cocker listed his 243-acre ranch in Telluride, CO, with it's downright baronial mansion with an asking price of $7.85 million.

As has already been reported far and wide, Orlando Bloom sold his house in L.A.'s Outpost Estates—the one made famous after it was burgled by the infamous Bling Ring—in an off-market deal for $3.9 million.

Comical that he's titled this estate "Mad Dog Ranch". It took one second to recognize it to his first (?) LP, "Mad Dogs and Englishmen". (Caught that live, front row center!) Does anyone recall this one:
