The Anatomy of a Sale

Unfortunately for Patrick Dempsey, life’s changes mean he must part with the Frank Gehry-designed estate. The estate he bought six years ago is on the market for $14.5 million, while Dempsey has already moved to his new Venice Beach mini-compound.

The three-acre property in Malibu is the stuff made for Architectural Digest, which did indeed feature the corrugated metal home shaped as a rhomboid – a home and garden design Dempsey told the magazine he loved.

With ocean views and raised gardens, the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home features floors made of repurposed scaffolding, a concrete sink in the kitchen and a sculpture studio. There is a nice pool surrounded by recycled wood decking, a fire pit and pizza oven.

Keeping Up With All the Kardashian/Jenner Moves

The Kardashian Klan nest is getting emptier and emptier. Not only has Bruce Jenner moved out and onto a new chapter in life, daughter Kylie Jenner is showing it’s her turn, too.

So what if she’s only 17?

The little sister of Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and Kendall is under contract to buy a $2.7 million home in Calabasas, CA. Unlike Kendall, who moved into her own $1.4 million condo in Westwood, Kylie will be just a stone’s throw away from Kourtney and Khloe. Meanwhile, mom Kris Jenner and sister Kim live in nearby Hidden Hills.

Kylie’s new 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom digs are in The Oaks development and the house is a spectacular 4,800 square feet, not including a 3-car garage.

Strong Economic Data Boost Mortgage Rate Increase

Mortgage rates for 30-year fixed mortgages rose this week, with the current rate borrowers were quoted on Zillow Mortgages at 3.62 percent, up 6 basis points from this time last week.

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate rose early in the week, then hovered around 3.65 percent before returning to the current rate on Tuesday.

Additionally, the 15-year fixed mortgage rate this morning was 2.87 percent, and for 5/1 ARMs, the rate was 2.75 percent.

Score Another One for Matthew Perry

Former Friends star-turned-real-estate-flipper Matthew Perry has done it again, but at a discount. Perry recently sold his beach house for $10.65 million – a little off the original list price of $13.5 million. Perry bought the 4-bedroom. 6-bathroom, modern wonder known as “Pier House” in 2005 for $6.55 million. With views of the Malibu pier and an open concept that sees the kitchen and living area open onto an ocean-view deck and lap pool, the 5,500-square-foot California beauty is a pretty sweet way to take in the Malibu scene. Perry has bought and sold his share of cool L.A. homes, from the Sunset Strip to the Hollywood Hills.

Hollywood 90210 Star Lists in Another ZIP Code

Shannen Doherty maybe have gone “Off the Map” in her new Great American Country network show, but back in California she’s listed her Malibu home for $2.495 million. With ocean views and a lagoon-style swimming pool, the low-key rambler contains 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a chillaxing kitchen-living room set up that maximizes a fireplace and views of the Pacific Ocean.

Can Tobey Scale a Sale?

Tobey Maguire is looking to cast off his lovely plantation-style home in Brentwood for $10.25 million – about $2 million more than he paid talk show host Ricki Lake for the 6-bedroom, 5-bath spread. Designed by California architect John Byers in the 1940s, the 6,320-square-foot home includes an upstairs guest suite that overlooks the nearly one-acre property and has a private entrance.

Channing Tatum’s Oscar-Worthy Move

Jumping streets: That’s literally what Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are doing as they neighborhood hop from Laurel Canyon, where they still own a 1920s abode, to a brand new, family-friendly home in Beverly Hills.

The “Foxcatcher” actor and star of “21 Jump Street” and his lovely wife paid $6 million for a spot in L.A.’s 90210 ZIP code. The 4,853-square-foot Cape Cod has 6 bedrooms, 6 baths and sits on behind gates on a tree-lined acre and has a beautiful pool, spa and outdoor fireplace.

The Tuscan-style home has 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms all tucked behind a gate and tree-lined drive.

While Miley and her own millions moved into her own place when she was 18, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus followed suit and moved out, too. …

Lena Moving On Up

Lena Dunham is getting what she wants, and not just being the voice of her generation, or a voice of a generation. This time, the writer and producer of the series “Girls” and author of a new book “Not That Kind of Girl” has gotten a very big girl apartment in Brooklyn Heights.

The new condo cost a cool $4.89 million and sprawls 3,200 square feet, including 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. The luxury brownstone building comes with indoor parking and a roof deck to take in some pretty alternative views of Brooklyn.

Dunham’s new digs aren’t far from her old one-bedroom abode that she bought in 2012 for $500,000.

Banking On It

Tyra Banks is aiming for a new look. The supermodel and host/producer of “America’s Next Top Model” has listed her Manhattan apartment for $3.795 million. The Soho abode sits in a 1924 Beaux Arts building and has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and measures just a hair over 2,000 square feet. Banks paid $2.1 million for the apartment in 2005. …
