Celebrity Real Estate: Dave Grohl, Amy Irving, Betsey Johnson
By Laura Vecsey
Dave Grohl’s Cali Beach House Gets Price Drop
Proof that he’s eager to make a deal, Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl has shaved a couple of bucks off his Oxnard beach house. The current list price is now $2.995 million. The 3,000-square-foot home sits a few sandy steps from the ocean and is big enough (4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and tons of decking) to hang 10 with some fellow surfer dudes. Grohl may need a day to catch a few waves near his well-appointed surfer’s den.
Amy Irving Downsizing in Her Adopted Hometown
Amy Irving was born in California, but after her starring role in “Crossing Delancey,” the actress always seemed to have a bit of New Yorker deep within. Now the 62-year-old star of screen and stage has decided to part with her sprawling apartment at 50 Central Park West.
The 3,200-square-foot residence in the prestigious Prasada building is for sale for $11.5 million. Irving, who famously received a $100 million divorce settlement from Steven Spielberg, has lived in the building since 2005.
Betsey Johnson Heads West
Wild and crazy fashion designer Betsey Johnson was an accidental tourist when she first visited the Hamptons more than 40 years ago. As a pal of Pop Art kingpin Andy Warhol, Johnson was an art groupie who went out to the East End of Long Island for some kind of event, only to wind up doing something improbable: She decided to buy a traditional-style home in East Hampton.
Now the septuagenarian has listed the long-loved property for $1.75 million, as she plans to spend time in Malibu near her daughter and grandkids. The 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home was listed for as much as $2.2 million earlier this year. The only real clue that the home is owned by an eclectic designer?
