Celebrities were breaking out the cardboard boxes this week, jumping from one ’hood to another.
Kardashian sibling and model Kendall Jenner strutted right out of Hollywood Hills. The oldest Jenner sold her Midcentury house on Marmont Avenue for $6.9 million. The 4,824-square-foot home has six bedrooms and five bathrooms with a rooftop patio, swimming pool and fire pit. Jenner bought the home from celebrity couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt last year of $6.5 million.
Not to be outdone by her older sister, Kylie Jenner sold off her second home in the past two months for $5.3 million. The 5,150-square-foot home in Hidden Hills has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There’s a wet bar, outdoor swimming pool with a spa, pool house and covered patio surrounding the home. Jenner paid $4.5 million for the property in June 2016, according to property records. She sold her two-story home in Calabasas for $3.2 million in July. Tomer Fridman of Compass had the listing. Sharon Staples of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.
But Hollywood Hills and Hidden Hills are not the only Hills that are alive with the sound of cha-ching. Beverly Hills is getting celebrity action thanks to Tyler Perry. The director and actor, known for playing the gun-toting grandma in the comedy “Madea’s Family Reunion,” dropped $14.5 million on a 17,245-square-foot mansion. The estate has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with a motor court for more than 30 cars. It also has a koi pond and stream that flows through the home. Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, along with Mauricio Umansky and Ninkey Dalton of the Agency held the listing. Josh and Matthew Altman of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
Meanwhile, actor and comedian Ray Romano is soaking up the Venice sun at his new digs. The “Everybody Loves Raymond” star spent $2.1 million on a 1,863-square-foot home in Venice, paying $110,000 over its asking price of $1.9 million. The “modern farmhouse” has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a separate den. French doors in the master bedroom lead to a deck and a grassy backyard. Mark Kitching of Partners Trust had the listing. Susan Roth of Teles Properties represented the buyer.
Stuck between the celebs who have bought and sold a home this week is David Arquette. The actor and producer has listed his swanky mobile home in Malibu with an asking price of $1.8 million. It has a monthly HOA fee of $2,248. The renovated pad has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a wraparound deck offering views of the ocean and coastline. The gated mobile home park also has a swimming pool, saunas, tennis court and clubhouse. Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland has the listing.
