Soap star Aaron Lustig has bought a house in Sherman Oaks for $1 million. The ranch-style home was built in 1936 but recently renovated. Among newly refurbished parts of the house are the three bathrooms and the kitchen, which features a center island and stainless-steel appliances. The 2,100 square feet of living space includes a vaulted-ceiling living room with a fireplace, a study, an art studio and three bedrooms. The dining room and master bedroom have French doors opening to the yard. Next to the lawn is the saltwater swimming pool with a brick surround and motorized cover.
Tinseltown scion and budding entertainment industry multi-hyphenate Jamie Iovine — he’s a DJ, a former WWE producer, former proprietor of the bygone Meltdown Comics and now the co-creator of mobile shopping platform Ntwrk — has opted to put down some permanent residential roots in a very central part of L.A, in the form of a $2.5 million cottage that’s essentially all-new. Located smack-dab in the middle of Beverly Grove, the densely-populated neighborhood packed with a near-infinite array of trendy shopping and dining destinations, the new Iovine house is perhaps best described as a contemporary Spanish in style and was originally built in 1925, per tax records, though the place was given a radical overhaul last year spearheaded by a local developer. The listing boasts that the 2,500 sq. ft. structure is “almost a new construction” with “99% of the foundation rebuilt.” Gated and equipped with cameras for security, the house features a modern, open floorplan with hardwood floors and high ceilings. Inside, a slim foyer is overlooked by an oval skylight and bordered on the right by a living room with wrought iron chandelier, and on the left by a spacious office. The eat-in kitchen offers an attractive blend of dark grey cabinetry and off-white Carrara marble countertops, and opens directly to a formal dining area and family room. At the home’s rear, French doors access a tiny wooden patio that almost immediately dead-ends at the property’s sparkling pool, which is equipped with a waterfall feature and inset spa.

Tay Hasselhoff — David Hasselhoff's oldest daughter — has dabbled in everything from singing to philanthropy to reality TV. Now, the 29 year old has decided to hone in on one main passion: real estate. The former Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star appears on the new CNBC Prime show Listing Impossible, which premieres Wednesday, January 15. The eight-episode series follows power broker Aaron Kirman and his team as they try to fix up and sell multimillion-dollar properties for a roster of uber-wealthy clients. The twist: Kirman specializes in selling homes that have sat on the market for years because they're so highly customized to the current owners, they can't readily find a new one. In the exclusive clip from the premiere, above, Tay tries to help her Baywatch star dad sell his $3.6 million L.A. mansion. The up-and-coming realtor, who notes she's previously only used her first name professionally, struggles with whether or not she should start using her famous last name to her advantage. "Growing up, I've always been known as the girl that had the celebrity dad, so that's kind of why in real estate I've kind of shied away from using my full name," she says. Her boss, Kirman, however, tells her that he thinks she should start using her name, and her connections, to her advantage, saying, "If when I started I had a last name that was known, I would have used it all day long." As she grapples with her choice, Tay finds out what her dad is looking for in a new home, and determines her best method for selling his old one. "I'm really excited because my dad is actually going to be one of my clients," she says. In addition to Tay, David also shares daughter Hayley, 27, with ex-wife Pamela Bach. I'm just looking for something a little bit bigger," David tells Tay upon her arrival, adding that he's looking for something specific in a new house: "a massive driveway."
Bryan Singer, the embattled director behind films such as “The Usual Suspects” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” who faced multiple sexual misconduct accusations in the last few years, has sold his coastal retreat on Malibu’s Point Dume for $13.75 million. The deal closed on Christmas Eve, records show. Singer owned the estate for more than a decade, paying $8.5 million for the one-acre spread in 2010. In April, he listed it for $16.5 million before trimming the tag to $15.5 million over the summer. Two structures occupy the leafy grounds: a main house with a screening room and a guesthouse with a gym. A pair of flagstone patios are found outside; one overlooks the ocean, the other features tall bamboo and palm trees around a swimming pool and spa.
Developer Nile Niami once had grandeurs of listing his magnum opus, a 105,000-square-foot mega-mansion known as The One, for upwards of $500 million. Despite hitting the market for $160 million less than originally planned, the palatial estate could still become the most expensive home ever sold in the United States. The One holds another record for its sheer size. The quarter-mile-long Bel Air manse is the largest in the world, comprising 21 bedrooms, 42 bathrooms, a 30-vehicle showroom and five swimming pools. Extravagant extras include a four-lane bowling alley, 30-seat movie theater, hair and beauty salon, a 6,000-square-foot principal suite with dual dressing rooms, and a 10,000-square-foot sky deck complete with a putting green. Envisioned by Irish-born architect Paul McClean, who has designed spec mansions purchased by Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Calvin Klein, and the late Swedish DJ Avicii, The One is characterized by clean lines, water features, neutral colors and unobstructed views. McClean has collaborated with Niami on numerous projects over the last 12 years, from renovations in the Hollywood Hills to new-builds in the Bird Streets.
Touchdown! Brady-Bundchen Home Is Sold The second time proved a winner as the Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen suburban Boston mansion has sold.

Location: Beverly Hills, California Price: $10.995 million This five-bedroom Spanish Revival home in the heart of the Beverly Hills Flats neighborhood is tucked away behind privacy-affording trees and hedges, which also give the property a sense of being its own environment. “You first enter the property through a whimsical courtyard,” said listing agent Sammy Jallad of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass. “Inside, the home’s grandeur and character are apparent but it also has such an easy living energy to it.” The home’s entry hall is dominated by a sweeping staircase and an ornate wrought-iron chandelier and the formal living room features high ceilings, exposed wood beams, a fireplace and three striking industrial light fixtures, which were installed by a previous owner. The family room also has a fireplace and it adjoins a chef’s kitchen, complete with professional appliances, a walk-in pantry, a French ceramic backsplash and quartz countertops. “The kitchen is an entertainer’s delight,” Mr. Jallad said. “It’s large and very open and functional. It has two double French doors that lead you out to a stunning oasis of a backyard with a gorgeous pool and spa and a cute little gazebo area that is perfect for hosting parties.” While taking care to retain the house’s picturesque charm, the current owners replaced the home’s roof—originally built in 1999—and ensured its smart home capability. “They are very tech savvy so that was important to them,” Mr. Jallad said. “They redid all the electrical to accommodate all the technology that they brought in and also took care to make it all work with the home’s historical lighting fixtures. They kept the hardwood floors intact and all of the home’s distinctive details that really elevate the feel of the house.”
