Celebrity Real Estate: Maya Angelou and Tyler Posey



By Laura Vecsey

Maya Angelou’s Harlem Home For Sale

Maya Angelou, who passed away in 2014, bought a Harlem townhouse sight unseen in 2002 at the urging of her friends, singer/songwriters Valerie Ashford and Nick Simpson. The celebrated writer and activist then had the entire, five-story building remodeled and went on to spend many good times in her New York City oasis entertaining friends like Cicely Tyson and Oprah Winfrey.

Now Angelou’s family is ready to let the home go: They’ve listed it for sale for just over $5 million. The 6,500-square-foot home features 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, including two master suites. There’s also an elevator and two fireplaces. Harlem has a lot of history, but Angelou’s time in the historic part of New York could make this home extra special to some buyer.

No Place For a Wolf!

Tyler Posey of “Teen Wolf” fame has made a very human decision: He bought a $1.32 million mid-century home in Studio City in Los Angeles. The 2,318-square-foot home is a nice little spot for someone young in Hollywood. The home comes with an open kitchen, landscaped yard with lagoon-style pool.
