Celebrity Real Estate: Salma Hayek, Beyonce, Kylie Jenner
By Laura Vecsey
Rentals of the Rich & Famous
In Los Angeles, actress Salma Hayek has put her mid-century modern home in the Hollywood Hills up for rent. The fully-furnished abode has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is located in the exclusive Outpost Estates. The price: $11,000 per month. The views: lush grounds and a swimming pool, of course.
In the Hamptons, anyone who wants to live like Jay Z and Beyonce can have at it. All it will take is forking over $500,000 for the 25,000-square-foot mansion that the entertainment industry power couple shacked up in in 2012. The 11-acre spread is in Bridgehampton and features 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
In D.C., the buzz was all about the 8,000-square-foot brick Tudor where President Barack Obama and his family will rent after the 44th U.S. President leaves office in January. Obama had told reporters earlier this year that the First Family was going to stay in D.C. to allow Sasha time to graduate from high school. Well, they’ve apparently settled on a 9-bedroom is near Embassy Row and features an au pair suite. It also has enough driveway space for 10 cars – important for a former President and his Secret Service attache.
Kardashian Compound Grows in Calabasas
Word is that 18-year-old Kylie Jenner is the new owner of a 7,000-square-foot home in Calabasas, the Hidden Hills enclave where Kardashian family holes up. That’s nearly double the space of her “old” spread in the same nabe, but why should a young socialite have to scrimp on space? Kylie now has plenty of room to roam on her 3-acre property.
Alexander Wang Has Designs on New Home
Thirty-year-old designer phenom Alexander Wang has listed his dramatic loft in New York City. The Tribeca pad has hit the market at $3.75 million.
With dramatic big windows, high ceilings and a huge open living area, the 1-bedroom comes with – of course – a huge walk-in closet capable of holding the fashionista's best-selling clothes. Wang paid $2 million for the place in 2010, and had it remodeled in bold black and white decor featuring fur-covered furniture and Zebra-print rugs.
