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.

Ashton Kutcher finally ready to commit?


He’s been with Demi for ages, and aren’t they marriedeven? Yet Ashton Kutcher only now decided to put his one time bachelor pad on the market. Maybe they used it as their pied-a-terre away from lovely Idaho where Demi bought a ranch after her divorce from Bruce. Whatever the reason; I have pictures.

Way back when Ashton was in That 70’s show he put down $1,690,000 on a Tudor style manse in, where else, Beverly Hills. The size a modest 4000+ square feet. It is here where the Bush sisters Jenna and Anna or Emma or the other one at least were caught blazin’ up a doobey which caused a bit of a stir Washington side.

The house has 6 bedrooms and 6,5 bathrooms, which I feel is quite a lot for a single guy in his twenties. Also, it actually looks like someone was not sure to go for Mountain resort chic, Knights in armour fancy, English tudor, or Early 60’s housing associations-esque. I mean, I am just not sure about the brown tiles in the stairway….

surprisingly modest for such a sought after zip
