Benji Madden buys hardwood lover’s dream home
If you’re a nature lover, you’ll probably be jealous of Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden’s new Los Angeles bungalow. Located near a lush canyon with plenty of trails for hiking, biking and hanging out, this 2,183-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is chock full of hardwood-style elements. From hardwood floors and ceilings to wood-framed doors, wooden beams, beautiful cabinets and a big open living area, Madden’s new pad is rustic yet stylish.
Kanye West lists bachelor pad for sale
Everyone’s favorite bad-boy rapper is moving on up, selling his 4,214-square-foot Hollywood Hills crib to move into a luxurious Bel Air mansion with sweetie Kim Kardashian. For only $3.4 million, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom home, complete with stunning skyline views, could be yours. As they say, however, with more money comes more problems, and West’s problem in this instance is that the average home price in the area is only $2.54 million. West tried in vain to sell the pad in 2010 for more than $4 million, so we can only hope that he closes the sale this time around.
John Legend sells NYC condo for big profit
About to move in with fiancée/swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, singer John Legend has just sold his East Village pad for $2.675 million, a price to make a Long Island real estate attorney see stars. He purchased the 1,359-square-foot home for just under $2 million when the housing market was at its worst in 2009, netting him a profit of more than $700,000. The place is well worth the money, however, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls to look out over the majestic NYC skyline. It also rocks a rooftop deck and swimming pool for some of the best parties and romantic evenings we can imagine.
