TV star who with a long run on hit show, ER
4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, views, pool, guesthouse
Eriq La Salle — best known to most of the world as Dr. Peter Benton on the hit TV Show “ER,” just banked some cash money on the sale of his longtime estate in Los Angeles. La Salle bought the Beverly Hills home at 1460 Laurel Way back in 1988, the same year he appeared in the Eddie Murphy movie “Coming to America,” for a mere $1.7 million, and he just closed on a deal to sell it to an unnamed buyer for $6 million.
He had originally asked an ambitious $7,950,000 when listed the home in January 2013. He eventually had to drop the price to $6,495,000 before he eventually snagged a buyer for $6 million even.
According to TMZ and sources close to the deal, Eriq is selling because he wants to downsize and doesn’t need a giant crib anymore.
The Tuscan-style home was entirely overhauled by La Salle in 2006 and has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 6,000 square feet, incredible 180-degree views, a pool, spa, and full guest house.
Inside, open living spaces feature a copper fireplace, formal dining room, gourmet chef’s eat-in kitchen, temperature controlled wine cellar, weight room, impressive wood paneled office, and floor-to-ceiling retractable walls of glass that create a seamless indoor/outdoor entertainer’s paradise. A Moroccan-inspired master suite takes up the entire top floor and includes a spa-like bathroom and adjacent lounging area. A 400-square-foot, private rooftop deck–with outdoor shower and hot tub–completes this remarkable property.

Orlando Bloom has just found a renter willing to pay $16,500 a month for the home famously burglarized by “The Bling Ring.” A gang of teenage thiefs broke into this home owned by Bloom, as well as the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and “The Hills” star Audrina Patridge, stealing millions of dollars worth of jewelry, clothing and art in 2008 and 2009.

Situated high up off the street, Bloom’s very private, gated compound totals 3/4 acres and features security cameras (naturally), lush gardens, a pool, swim machine and spa.

He's best known for playing Stefan Salvatore on Vampire Diaries and she's known for her TV work in Army Wives and One Tree Hill
3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 3,262 square feet
Just days after announcing their divorce, Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto have listed their shared Los Angeles home for $1,595,000.
He’s best known for playing hunky Stefan Salvatore on Vampire Diaries and she’s known for her TV work in Army Wives and One Tree Hill. The actors met in 2007 on the set of the film Killer Movie and later married in a private ceremony in New York City in April 2011.
US Weekly just announced that the duo are getting divorced after two years of marriage and via their reps, they said that they “have decided to amicably split and will continue to remain good friends.”
As with most divorces, the community property has to be split or sold, and in this case, Wesley and DeVitto are choosing to sell the home they purchased together on December 29, 2011 for $980,000 and move on with their separate lives.
One look at the place and you’ll wonder how anyone could be unhappy here. A fully restored 20′s Mediterranean Villa, Paul and Torrey’s home is perched above Beachwood Canyon and has a hedged perimeter for absolute privacy. The interior has a large rotunda entry, gorgeous vintage tile floors, a top-of-the-line kitchen, beamed ceilings and stone counters.
Upstairs, the large master retreat is separated from the 2 additional bedrooms, which share a vintage-style bathroom. Outside, French doors open to a large flagstone, canyon-view terrace with fountain and garden areas.

Mega-hot Hollywood actor, formerly married to Scarlett Johansson, currently married to Blake Lively
2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 1,789 square feet
Desperate to shed his former life in Los Angeles, Ryan Reynolds has just re-listed his home high above the Sunset Strip for $1,599,000. The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 6 years, Reynolds is ready to part with the place at a $116,000 loss so he can be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.
This isn’t the first time Reynolds has tried to end his relationship with this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.
It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an initial asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market, until today, where it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2 years later, market conditions are in Reynold’s favor and he’s much more likely to sell the home.
The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.
Annie Challis of Keller Williams is representing Reynolds as his listing agent.

4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 3,763 square feet, beachfront, private pool
Actor, comedian and former Saturday Night Live star David Spade has finally sold his beachfront Malibu home for $10,225,000! Spade thought the joke was on him as he waited for years and years to finally snag a buyer for the 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, 3,763 square foot home.
The former “Just Shoot Me” star bought the place on May 20, 2005 for $9,300,000 and just two years later, in 2007, the beachfront pad first popped onto the market with a $16,000,000 asking price . With no buyer coming a-knocking, Spade de-listed the Malibu home at 21606 Pacific Coast Highway and leased it out, eventually re-listeding it in December 2011 with a more realistic asking price of $13.5 million. It languished on the market for nearly two years until Spade closed a deal on June 13, 2013, selling the place for just $10,225,000 to a C-level executive from Netflix.
The just-sold home sits on a pristine stretch of La Costa Beach and has rare patio privacy and a beautiful pool on the backside of the property. The home has high ceilings, gorgeous wood floors and numerous doors opening to the incredible sandy coastline. Spade sunk some serious dough into the place over the years, giving it a newer bulkhead and foundation and high-end finishing touches.
While he’s no longer a Malibu resident, Spade still owns a $4 million home with a celebrity pedigree in the gated Trousdale Estates area of Beverly Hills. Both Eddie Murphy and Warren Beatty owned the home before Spade bought it on December 7, 2001.
