Ronald Reagan Slept/Showered/Swam… LIVED Here (Sold for $5.2m) (Photo Gallery!)

15, 2013 2:52pm

A presidential property with views out the wazoo in the Pacific Palisades just went under the hammer for $5.2 million, a sum just over its asking price. Occupying rare space by going for a sale price above listing, the phenomenon might be explained by a meteor shower in Russia, or by the fact that the 4BR/4BA mid-century modern property was once owned by popular prez Ronald Reagan! Check out the photos of the prez's former pad. And imagine the man floating back and forth in his pool, gazing out over the spread of the city from the Pacific Ocean to the Getty Museum, and perhaps sipping on an old-fashioned as the buzz of LA laid at his feet.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters star and two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (The Hurt LockerThe TownMission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) is a serious house-flipper.

Glen Campbell’s Country Music Malibu Mansion Sells for $4.45m (Photo Gallery)

16, 2012 11:30am

Country superstar Glen Campbell had his Malibu mansion customized a few years ago with travertine floors and African mahogany cabinetry, the place brimming with luxurious largesse including a dramatic theater room, billiard room, office, 8-person spa, outdoor dining area with full kitchen, ocean views, and proximity to Point Dume. The house has about 6,500 square feet of living space for just four bedrooms. The listing comes with somewhat of a heavy mind, knowing that Campbell performed the last show of his farewell tour last month (in Napa), a tour precipitated by a diagnosis that the country music legend has Alzheimer's disease. Check out the pics of the house where the Rhinestone Cowboy called California home.

A theater, pool, tennis court, guest house, 10 bedrooms, 10'ish bathrooms, views over the Coachella Valley and Joshua Tree National Park, library and 23 acres of 'space' seems like a lot to give up in this world, but that's exactly what Gucci heiress Patricia Gucci is doing - putting her 11,000 square foot mini-palace on the market for $9 million and moving to "the continent." The 49-year-old is the granddaughter of (yes, it's his real name) Guccio Gucci, founder of the now ubiquitous house of fashion. We bet she's got cool sunglasses.
