Louis CK’s Shelter Island summer retreat


I have a secret crush on Louis CK. And now that I have seen the new house he bought, even more.
It’s located on an actual island in the far end of Long Island, nestled between Gardiners Bay and the Shelter Island sound. It can only be reached by ferry, and is a good 3 hours drive from Manhattan. The location alone is worth it, but look at this house. It’s gorgeous!

He reportedly paid $2,440,000 for the 4,957 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 3.5 bathroom mansion. It looks like it was designed by a German architect who liked Tudor style and watched the Adam’s Family. And it somehow even looks Eastern European. But I love it; both inside and out.

Look at that amazing sun room! Or that vintage kitchen. I hope Louis won’t rip all that character out. He seems pretty mellow and down to earth so I wouldn’t be surprised if these characteristics are what attracted him to the property.

I want a private dock too 😦

Rachel Zoe’s got her work cut out for her in her new house


She sure has some styling to do! Celebrity fashion designer and stylist Rachel Zoe bought a new house, and boy does it need work!! A simple paint job is not going to cut it. This needs a lot of TLC, eye for detail and money… lots of money. And she had such a nice house!

Nate Berkus Chicago abode not selling well…


A little over a year after it was featured right here on Homevoyeurs.com, Mr Berkus further reduced the price of his Chicago apartment to $1,890,000. Still hefty, but considering its original asking price of $2,650,000, a pretty decent discount! I absolutely love the style of Nate Berkus, which was obvious from my post last year. For a high-profile designer, he changed very little since, as I do believe these are newer pictures. But when it’s right, it’s right, and boy is it ever.

Harrison Ford puts his Hollywood manse on the market


Hollywood buff Harrison Ford and his much younger (and thinner) wife Calista Flockhart, are selling their Hollywood home. The Country Colonial, designed by Beverly Hills favourite Gerard Colcord, was bought by Mr Ford and his ex-wife in 1983. I guess La Flockhart wanted to get rid of all the bad ex-wife vibes that lingered in the place, but I bet Mr Ford is sadly saying his goodbyes as the place is wonderful.

The house has a lot of charm and most likely he designed and fitted some of the many clever shelves and units. After all, before he went into acting, Harrison Ford was a carpenter and cabinet-maker. It was built in the 1950’s but looks as if it is much older and oozes character! And the views of Los Angeles are breath-taking. With al that smog maybe literally….

The actor and the old Mrs Ford bought the 7000+ square feet (700 m2) for around $1.000.000 which is peanuts now.  The house is on the market for $8.295.000 which means a healthy profit is in the cards. The happy couple need some extra cash as their new home has set them back $12.650.000…..

Brooke Shields sells off her NYC pied-a-terre


Classy model/actress/writer Brooke Shields and her equally successful hubby are selling of one of their properties. It’s a 2600 square feet which measures up to about 260 m2, but quite frankly, the floor plan begs to differ…It is nice enough though, and in a prime location in NYC’s trendy SoHo district. The property comes with three bedrooms, two full baths, ample storage space and my personal favorite; an elevator opening up into the actual apartment! How Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan Morell!

It was sold for $2.950.000

Floor plan porn…..


Look at this magnificent apartment. It’s the Penthouse of the mother of all real estate pearls; 15 Central Park West. To be fair, it’s ‘just’ the penthouse of the lower part. But it faces Central Park, and has terraces overlooking it on pretty much all sides. Hence it’s rather steep asking price of $88.000.000….. That means Greece couldn’t afford it.

$42.000.000 for Jennifer Aniston’s home


Yes, you read that right, and no, I didn’t put in a zero too many……..

Jennifer Aniston is selling her house in, where else, Beverly Hills California and listed it for a heart stopping 42 million dollars. For that you get a lot, but seriously.. $42.000.000? Is it honestly worth that much? Or does it help that Jen is the seller?

Jennifer Aniston's house in Beverly Hills

The house is massive, and has gorgeous views. It sits on nearly an acre of land and measures around 10,000 square feet with a total of 5 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms including the staff suite and expansive master bedroom suite with two spa like bathrooms. And to imagine that Miss Aniston is very very single. Maybe that’s why she is moving? 5 bedrooms and 7,5 bathrooms (a half bathroom in Americano speak means just a loo) might be pushing it a bit on your own?

Rumour has it, she is buying three new homes, all in NYC. They are now listed separately, but are adjacent so can be joined and remodeled into one big apartment.
