Seems like the rich and famous are craving a change in scenery these days — judging by the handful of celebrity listings that hit the market this week. Matthew Perry, however, was one step ahead. Chandler Bing plopped down a cool $20 million for a bangin’ new pad in Century City.

Perry, who recently listed his Hollywood Hills West home, bought a 9,318-square-foot penthouse in the Century, the luxe condo tower at 1 W. Century Drive — also home to Candy Spelling. The 42-story building was developed by Related Companies and designed by Robert A. M. Stern.

The four-bedroom condo features floor-to-ceiling windows, 7.25 bathrooms, two fireplaces in the living room and a formal dining room that can seat up to 25 people, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Bachir Oueida of Douglas Elliman had the listing agent. Perry was represented by Greg Holcomb of Partners Trust.

Meanwhile, America’s childhood crush wants to move out of Sherman Oaks. “Saved by the Bell” actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played the role of preppy Zack Morris, recently put his Sherman Oaks home up for rent for $13,500 per month. The 5,200-square-foot French Country abode has five bedrooms, a formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, five bathrooms and an additional two rooms. Craig Strong of John Aaroe Group has the listing.

Over in Brentwood, John McVie is ready to go his own way. The Fleetwood Mac bassist has listed his home for $2.9 million. The Spanish-style house spans 2,200 square feet and contains two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a glass studio that could double as a guest house, designed by Lise Claiborne Matthews. Marcie Hartley of Hilton & Hyland has the listing.

Natasha Bedingfield also awaits an unwritten future for her Los Feliz home, which recently hit the market for $4.75 million. The “Unwritten” singer is seeking a cool $1 million profit on the 4,800-square-foot home, which she acquired for $3.75 million in 2015. Built in the 1950s, the house features a media room, theater, multiple entertainment areas, six bathrooms and views of the Griffith Observatory. Andrew Mortaza of the Agency has the listing.

Finally, “Telenovela” actress Alex Meneses is eager to sell in Encino — so eager, in fact, that she’s ready to take on a $1.25 million loss on the Spanish Colonial Villa. The actress purchased it for $8 million in 2006, but it’s now on the market for only $6.75 million. Menseses’ agent, Lynne Weiss of Coldwell Banker, said the price cut was due to inflated pre-recession prices. Spanning 7,800 square feet, the gated spread features a formal dining room, master suite with sitting room, children’s playroom, wine cellar, two-bedroom guest house, three kitchens, and five fireplaces.
