Celebrity Real Estate: Ivanka Trump, Gwen Stefani, Emily Blunt
Obama Neighbors Now Include Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner
Well, partisan politics may divide people, but when it comes to the best places to live in Washington, D.C., birds of all feathers flock together.
Witness the new D.C. digs of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, which is located in the Kalorama neighborhood. This is the same residential part of the nation’s capital where the President Barack Obama will move to after Donald Trump takes over the White House.
Ivanka and Kushner, who has been named senior advisor to Trump, will live in a 1923 Colonial.
The 6,870-square-foot home sold for $5.5 million in December, but it was not clear whether Trump & Kushner were the buyers, or will just rent.
Given family ties to New York City, where Kushner, like his father-in-law is a real estate developer, it could be the couple will split time between D.C. and NYC. Either way, the stately home with 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and fireplaces galore is plenty of room for Kushner, Trump and their three young children.
Not-So-Sweet Escape For Gwen Stefani
They tried to keep it quiet and execute a split without a lot of publicity. In the end, Gwen Stefani and her ex, Gavin Rossdale, have decided to go public -- and list their house on the open market.
The high-profile but former couple have set the price for the 12,000-square-foot estate at $35 million. There’s no mistaking the Stefani touch on the place. The 7-bedroom, 11-bathroom modern mansion is mod, posh and glamorous.
In fact, the decor and furnishings reflect exactly the kind of style that made Stefani the fashion and cultural “IT” girl in addition to her fronting the band No Doubt.
The compound sports a 250-foot-long private driveway, tennis court, pool, spa and guesthouse. The listing comes a year or so after Stefani and Rossdale had shopped it off-market, hoping for a quick deal amongst the well-heeled Beverly Hills 90210 set.
Bye-Bye Ojai for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have been the leaders of the pack when it comes to real estate wheeling and dealing. Now that the star couple are the proud owners of a fabulous townhouse in Brooklyn, they had little need for their weekend home -- in California.
Luckily for the couple they have now divested of this 4,000-square-foot home in Ojai. They scored $4.25 million for the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home set on a 5-acre site of the Ojai Foothills Hotel.
The sale comes a year after Blunt and Krasinski sold one L.A. home near Mulholland Drive for $3.5 million and a $6.5 million home in Hollywood Hills purchased by Kendall Jenner.
