Celebrity Real Estate: Cher, Ben Stiller, Hope Solo
By Laura Vecsey
Tres, Tres Cher
When it comes to Hollywood divas, no one can really hold a candle to Cher. She has always done things big. Songs. Dresses. Hairstyles. Twitter put-downs. Now she can add real estate price whoppers to her legend, as her former estate has hit the market at $85 million.
Even in California, that is a large price tag, even for a 16-acre spread with a 20,000-square-foot main house and 7,000-square-foot Moroccan guest house. Eddie Murphy also once owned the place after Cher’s stint there back in the 1980s. Boy, if she could turn back time …
Stiller Buys in West Village
Native New Yorker Ben Stiller and his wife, actress Christine Taylor, have traded their Upper West Side co-op for a snazzy new condo on the West Village. The couple and their two kids are moving into the uber-hot building at 150 Charles Street, home to other celebrities like Jon Bon Jovi and model Irina Shayk.
The full-floor unit that spans approximately 3,400 square feet cost the mega-movie star $15.3 million. It’s loaded with a library, white marble kitchen counters and full-window views of the Hudson River.
Hope Solo Ready to Leave Home
After kicking it here for several years, U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo is moving on. Not from the soccer pitch, but from her home, which is located in Kirkland, WA, just across Lake Washington from Seattle.
With Solo and her teammates heading to Rio for the 2016 Olympic Games this August, the star is likely to snag a sale before she comes back to the U.S. – probably donning with another Olympic medal. The Seattle metro area real estate market is sizzling and Solo is asking $1.85 million for her 5,330-square-foot contemporary home.
Solo, 34, and her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, have lived in the home for several years, which the Solo called her sanctuary. And it's no wonder. In addition to 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a chef’s kitchen and master suite, the property sports an outdoor pool and sumptuous mountain and lake views.
