Celebrity Real Estate: Charlie Sheen, Katie Couric, Stockard Channing
By Laura Vecsey
Charlie Sheen’s Former Home for Sale
Prior to his announcement that he was HIV positive, Charlie Sheen liked to think of himself as #winning. But given the circumstances around one of the Los Angeles homes Sheen recently sold, the hard-partying actor may have to reconsider his hashtag choices.
That’s because the Mediterranean-style home in Beverly Hills that Sheen sold for $6.6 million in December is back on the market as the new owner looks to make big bucks flipping his home. At $2.6 million more, the new price for the mansion is $9.2 million.
With high real estate prices still holding steady in hot markets like L.A., maybe Sheen ought to take a look at the price he has on another 90210 home, which the actor has listed for $6.1 million. Given his recent track record, second thoughts could be in order for the list price of this 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom property.
Katie Couric Makes News
She may not be quite as ubiquitous as Global News Anchor at Yahoo, but Katie Couric’s $10 million salary can still foot some real estate bills. She and her husband of two years, John Molner, have just bought a new condo on the Upper East Side.
The sleek new pad cost $12.23 million and spans a generous 4,000 square feet. It’s also not far from the Park Avenue apartment where Couric had lived since the early 1990s with her first husband, who passed away from colon cancer, and her two daughters. But a fresh start is what the TV personality will get in her majestic new NYC digs.
‘Rizzo’ Selling Her L.A. Area Home
“Grease” is always the word when it comes to enduring entertainment. Now Tony-award winning Stockard Channing, who first brought Rizzo to life in the classic film and on Broadway, is looking to dump her Hollywood Hills home for $1.895 million.
Channing bought the 1950 mid-century house above Laurel Canyon in 2003, but her career continues to keep her hopping, including her work in “The Good Wife,’’ which keeps her in New York.
