It was a relatively quiet week on the celebrity home front as the summer got into full swing. The one exception was a new $22.5 million listing for a home owned by Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

The guitarist listed the Westside home for nearly quadruple what he paid for it. Buckingham bought the six-bedroom abode just five years ago for $5.8 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. The home has since been extensively renovated and redesigned, according to marketing materials. It sits on a nearly one acre-lot and comprises 7.75 bathrooms, a formal living, multiple dining rooms, a chef’s kitchen, a library and a screening room. David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties has the listing.

In Hancock Park, it’s nearly a scandal how many home Shonda Rhimes is buying. The prolific TV show creator just bought her fourth home in the Central Los Angeles neighborhood for $4.6 million. The English country manor-style abode comprises five bedrooms and spans nearly 5,000 square feet. It features a marble floored foyer, a dining room with coffered ceilings, a library and a fireplace in the master suite. Rhimes already owns a $1.7 million, two-family home just west of Hancock Park, as well as two other large nearby residences she purchased for $5.6 million and $8.8 million, according to Variety.

Meanwhile, fellow Hollywood powerhouse Paula Wagner — longtime former agent to Tom Cruise — scooped up a house for $7.4 million in Beverly Hills. Wagner and her husband, Rick Nicita, purchased the nearly 9,000-square-foot home from performance consultant Erik Bertrand Larssen and his wife, medical entrepreneur Louise Mohn, records show. An LLC attached to Mohn acquired the property for $4.2 million in 2008. Built in 1989, the property was first listed in January for $8.9 million. Vanessa Sandin of Hilton & Hyland had the listing.

The Bel Air estate of the late Harvey Korman sold this week to a developer for $13.9 million. The 6,600-square-foot Mediterranean-style abode on Stradella Road will likely be razed and replaced by a new William Hefner-designed mansion, according to listing details. Renderings for the new home show a 17,000-square-foot residence with nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Marc Noah and Victoria Risko of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing. Kate Farmanara of Exclusive Realty Inc. represented the buyer.

The runaway bride is settling in Point Dume. Julia Roberts, along with her husband Danny Moder, bought her third home in the tony Malibu neighborhood for $3.9 million. The 1,620-square-foot cottage, which has three bedrooms and one bathroom, was also marketed as a tear-down. Its best feature? Backyard access to the exclusive Riviera 1 beach. Roberts already owns a two-acre estate nearby in Point Dume, which she bought for $9.5 million in 2003, as well as a ranch-style house across the street that she acquired for $6.8 million last year. Coldwell Banker’s Chris Cortazzo and Lily Harfouche brokered the deal.
