A Look Into LA’s Celebrity Luxury Market

The past few months have been quite busy for the Los Angeles’ luxury home market and for the team at Westside Estate Agency. Day in and day out, our talented agents worked tirelessly to represent Hollywood’s elite, industry leaders, and LA residents of high-authority in buying and selling some of the most breathtaking properties throughout the southern, coastal region of California. As we enter into the final quarter of 2018’s luxury real estate market, let’s take a look at some of the Los Angeles luxury homes that recently made the news.

Joe Jonas’ Sherman Oaks Luxury Farmhouse

Back in August, Joe Jonas, former member of the Jonas Brothers and current leadman for DNCE, listed his Sherman Oaks home for a sumptuous $4.25 million. Better known as the Sutton House, this stunning farmhouse estate is 5,600 square feet featuring modern and rustic touches, four bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a home theater, and a separate guest house. Joe Jonas listed this luxurious home with WEA’s Carl Gambino. Currently on the market, the Sutton House offers potential buyers with ample privacy and is priced to sell!

Harald Belker’s Venice Home

Batmobile designer, Harald Belker, placed his stunning contemporary-style home on the market for $3.595 million at the beginning of September. Belker’s two-story home exudes a minimalist vibe with gorgeous Mahogany floors, an open floor plan, black granite countertops, and more. This lovely three bedroom home also features a studio apartment situated above the garage. The backyard offers ample excuses for entertaining with a stunning patio area, bordering hedges for privacy, and an exquisite solar-heated saltwater pool. WEA’s Brian Teacher holds the listing for this beautiful property.

 Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Newest Old Hollywood Property

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi recently invested in a $15 million Beverly Hills home that exudes Old Hollywood glamour. This stunning Hollywood Regency-style home was once owned by the late Marjorie Lord. With a few restorations, this hot property now features floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room, a covered patio, a swimming pool and spa, web-patterned wood ceilings, and so much more. WEA’s very own Kurt Rappaport represented both Ellen and Portia in this sumptuous sale.

The Godfather Estate

The famous LA estate featured in ‘The Godfather’ is back on the market for a staggering $135 million. Over the years, this opulent estate has seen plenty of fame, as it was once owned by William Randolph Hearst and hosted the Kennedys during their honeymoon. This breathtaking Spanish Colonial-style mansion features an Olympic-size pool, a tennis court, screening rooms, a commercial-grade kitchen, and can impressively accommodate more than 400 guests for a luxurious dinner. Kurt Rappaport is one of the listing agents associated with this spectacular property.

As we venture into the Q4 of the luxury real estate market, the team of agents at WEA are very excited to see what new properties, listings, and buyers we will have the pleasure of representing.
