Mid-Week Mash Up

Your Mama can't possibly discuss each and every celebrity related real estate matter. Fortunately for the children there are scads of other property gossips out there who fill in the gaps.


The ever-industrious kids at Curbed (via The Real Deal) reported yesterday that Broadway producer Hal Prince listed his rather theatrical Manhattan townhouse with an asking price of $22,000,000. He bought it not quite three years ago for $12,500,000 and—holy-moly—is it every a decorative doozy. We suggest y'all steel yourself with a stiff cocktail, super-sized nerve pill or some other mood-altering substance because—we are dead serious, puppies—this place is a cacophonous sight for sore eyes.


The long legged lady at Trulia Luxe Living snitched this week about chat show and game show host Meredith Vieira (The View, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) plumping up her property portfolio with the recent purchase of modestly-sized west coast abode. Miz V., who owns at least two east coast residences, coughed up $1,115,000 for the 1,783 square foot house in the hills above Hollywood that has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and distant views over Runyon Canyon of the iconic Hollywood sign.


There's a bit of scuttlebutt on the Philly Chit Chat blog (via Curbed Philadelphia) about country queen Taylor Swift building a big house in the seaside community of Sea Isle City, NJ,

We don't know a thing about such a thing but it wouldn't be a shocker given young Miss Swift has family in the area and her parents owned a place in nearby Stone Harbor they picked up in 1997 for $485,000 and sold in February 20005 for $2,425,000.


Gossip juggernaut TMZ revealed that Evander Holyfield has packed up and moved out of his monstrous 54,000 square foot mega-mansion on 234 acres outside Atlanta, GA. The property was recently sold in a foreclosure auction for $7,500,000. Oh dear.


Speaking of celebrity-related (near) foreclosures, the fine folks at Zillow let the cat out of the bag about former Partridge Family heart throb David Cassidy—a recent and weirdly churlish contestant on Celebrity Apprentice—has opted to surrender a 2,726 square foot condo in downtown Fort Lauderdale (FL) to the bank rather than go through the arduous process of foreclosure. Property records show he bought the 34th floor spread in early 2005 for $1,350,000.

Have no fear fans, Mister Cassidy—who still plies his brand of Showbiz fare in places like The Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ—is far from homeless. Property records we peeped reveal Mister (and third Missus) Cassidy also own a 7,000-ish square foot canal-front residence, also in Fort Lauderdale, purchased in February 2001 for $1,100,000.
