Recently in celebrity real estate news, actor Ryan Reynolds is trying to dump his Hollywood Hills home again and Richard Gere listed his Hamptons home for a whopping $65 million.
Ryan Reynolds relists in Hollywood Hills
Third time is the charm, at least that is what Ryan Reynolds is hoping. The actor has stuck his Hollywood Hills home on the market for the third time and at a lower price of $1.599 million, and perhaps this time the residence will attract a buyer.
Reynolds bought the home in the celebrity-entrenched neighborhood of Outpost Estates for $1.715 million before his marriage to actress Scarlett Johansson. The two didn’t live there but in the mid-century “Wong House,” which they sold after divorcing for $3.5 million. While Reynolds and Johansson were married, Reynolds tried to sell the home, first listing it in 2009 — not the hottest year for real estate. Reynolds ended up couching the listing until 2011, relisting the home with a sticker of $1.69 million.
Then life got busy for Reynolds: He quietly married another beautiful starlet, Blake Lively, and delisted the home. The two have a home in Bedford, NY, and Reynolds is trying again to dump his former place at 2416 Carman Crest Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068.
With just 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, the home is not a typical over-the-top celeb estate. Measuring only 1,789 square feet, the home does have upgrades, including hardwood floors, solar heating, a tank-less water heater and private, landscaped garden.
Richard Gere is hoping for $65 million for his Hamptons manse
Richard Gere’s heart may be taken, but for a cool $65 million you can have the next best thing — his Strongheart Manor estate.
Property records indicate that the 63-year-old actor is unloading the estate, located at an undisclosed address in North Haven, NY. The private 6-acre estate with panoramic waterfront views is undeniably one of the most breathtaking spots in all of Long Island. Dock permits allow you to house vessels of your choice, ready to sail on the open waters.
The 12,000-square-foot, 12-bedroom, 12-bath mansion boasts vintage East Coast luxury and modern furnishes. Built in 1902, it has a charm reminiscent of Gere’s famous character in “Pretty Woman” — calm but persistent.
Factor in the sprawling lawns, blooming gardens, outdoor fireplace pavilion and balconies with unbeatable views. The neutral-shaded interior of the home holds an appeal that chooses to speak quietly rather than brag. The spacious gourmet kitchen is suitable for whipping up dishes for any household event, from a Sunday brunch to a birthday gala.
Since its initial construction, the estate has been renovated and expanded into the opulent property it is today. A notable feature is the tranquil teahouse that sits beside a waterfront pond.
In addition to the Strongheart Manor house, 3 single and separate lots house 2 additional guesthouses, perfect for accommodating friends and family during a weekend retreat.
The listing is held by Linda Haugevik of Sotheby’s International Realty.
