1. Taylor Swift Lived Here
Taylor Swift didn’t make the move to Nashville until she was 14. Until then, she lived in Reading, Pennsylvania, in this “Grand 3-Story Classical Revival Home” for 10 years. Her childhood home recently went on the market again and just sold for $700,000. (In other Swift real estate news, she recently flipped a beach house in Hyannis Port.)
Katy Perry has been trying to sell the house she bought with Russell Brand in 2011 since the beginning of the year. She paid $6.5 million but recently lowered the asking price to $6.495. Check the listing for all the photos.
Remember that stunning Art Deco-style house Jeremy Renner remodeled with help from interior designer Kristoffer Winters? Their hard work paid off. Renner purchased it for $7 million and just sold it for $24. The listing described it as a home as “fit for a 21st century Howard Hughes.”
Speaking of Howard Hughes (or the actor who played him onscreen, anyway), DiCaprio has been renting this house on the beach for $75,000/month. You can buy it, though, if you can come up with about $18.9 million. That might sound like a lot, but he just lowered the price by over $4 million in June. So really, if you think about it, it’s a bargain!
I couldn’t figure out why so many people were suddenly searching for Olivia Newton-John’s house on my blog recently until I ran across an article reporting that a 42-year old landscaper killed himself on the property. So sad. You can see the house pics here. It’s still on the market for $5.9 m.
Did you see Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s house featured in Architectural Digest? It’s huge and has a koi-stocked moat so I was surprised by how charming and warm some of the rooms were. I especially like the kitchen.
