Jon Bon Jovi
New York penthouse - $42 million
Jon Bon Jovi has listed his Soho penthouse for $42 million, almost double the price of the next-highest priced home in the New York neighborhood. The 7,500-square-foot home is in a pre-war, landmark duplex condo in one of Manhattan’s hippest neighborhoods. The home has five bedrooms and 5.5 baths and features an impressive foyer, dining area and a modern chef’s kitchen. The penthouse also has 11-foot ceilings and three landscaped terraces.
Pacific Palisades, Calif., home - $14.999 million
“Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David has put his 1950s Pacific Palisades mansion on the market for $14.999 million. The seven-bedroom, 10-bath home is located on nearly an acre of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This Tudor-style home resembles something out of the English countryside, with a gated entrance, a long cobblestone pathway and a beautiful pool and guest house out back. The inside features beamed ceilings, wood and tile floors and brick and stone fireplaces.
Bel Air, Calif., home - $12 million
Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs has put her Balinese-style home in the Los Angeles community of Bel Air on the market for $12 million. Tiegs has owned the home for 17 years and hired “million dollar decorator” Martyn Lawrence Bullard to do the décor. The five-bedroom, 4.5 bath home features a main living area with dark wood floors, a vaulted ceiling and a kitchen with a farmer’s sink and butcher block island. Located on nearly an acre and a half, the kidney-shaped pool, fountains and lush plantings make this property feel like a tropical getaway in the middle of Los Angeles.
Carpinteria, Calif. - $7.25 million
Legendary film director Joel Schumacher, best known for the 1980s classic “St. Elmo’s Fire” and a trio of “Batman” movies, has his California retreat on the block for $7.25 million. This five-bedroom, 4.5 bath home about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles is all about privacy. The three-bedroom main house and secluded guest house are tucked away on five lush acres overlooking the surrounding hillsides and with distant views of the Pacific Ocean. Designed by Don Nulty and built in 2000, the house is pleasantly rustic and features Diego Rivera-style murals in the entrance hall.
