Celebrity Real Estate: Britney Spears, John Cusack, Ice-T, Kathleen Turner
By Laura Vecsey
Britney Spears Selling Home in Thousand Oaks
Her lip-syncin’ good show at Planet Hollywood in Vegas has kept Britney Spears in Sin City for the last few years, so it’s little wonder she’s taken some time to part with her Southern California mansion. She has listed the marble-laden estate for $8.995 million.
Located in the Lake Sherwood area of Thousand Oaks with views of the mountains, Spears’ 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom property boasts a Spanish architectural flavor and comes with a backyard fit for kids of all ages. But her children still have plenty of space to play. In October, the pop star and mother of two bought a $7.4 million, 21-acre estate, also in Thousand Oaks.
John Cusack Parting With Malibu Home
Chicago native John Cusack has owned a Malibu beach house since 1999, but the actor is looking for an out – any way he can. His beachfront home is listed both for sale and rent, at a respective $13.5 million or whopping $75,000-per-month.
By waiting a long time to sell, Cusack is sure to make a pretty profit from his California beach community home. The actor paid $2.1 million for the 4,300-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home 17 years ago.
Actor-Rapper Ice-T Lists Jersey Pad
With a new baby with wife Coco Austin and a new suburban home in Edgewater, NJ, Ice-T is looking to dispense with his New Jersey penthouse apartment. The Newark, NJ native is seeking $1.1 million for the 2-bedroom, 2-bath that shows off nice views of the Big Apple across the Hudson River.
Kathleen Turner Settles in Tribeca
A few months after selling her 3-bedroom, Upper West Side condo for $3.8 million, Kathleen Turner has found a new home in downtown NYC. The “Body Heat” actress and longtime theater star paid $2 million for her 2-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom loft. The 1899 building is a perfect NYC mix of old-school, cast-iron behemoth and sleek and slightly industrial chic interiors.
