Celebrity Real Estate Roundup: Billy Bob Lists and More
By Laura Vecsey
Billy Bob Thornton Leaving Longtime Beverly Hills House
Turns out that Billy Bob Thornton’s relationship with the Beverly Hills house he shared with Angelina Jolie lasted longer than their marriage.
On Oct. 8, the “Sling Blade” screenwriter/actor/blues musician listed his Spanish hacienda for sale. The list price for the sprawling, 11,000-square-foot Beverly Hills home is $9.995 million. Thornton and Jolie bought the place in 2000 for $3.75 million, and Thornton stayed on after the couple’s split in 2003.
Given that Thornton won’t make Connie Angland, his new longtime lady friend and mother of his daughter, Bella, his sixth wife, that means the Beverly Hills home -- complete with 9 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a pool, library and two-story living room -- has been one of his most steady and enduring relationships.
Take My House, Please
The perpetually sarcastic Albert Brooks could play the lead in this one:
Successful Hollywood actor and critically acclaimed writer who owns Merv Griffin’s old home has tough luck the first time he tries to sell the private compound, so he takes it off the market for three months only to relist the house for the same $6.995 million price.
That’s right. Brooks is once again trying to sell the very nice home he bought from entertainment guru Griffin back in 1993. The private Bel Air estate sits quietly off a private driveway in Los Angeles.
Listed by Billy Rose of The Agency, the property is being marketed as a “modernist ski lodge or modernist Balinese pavilion.” The home has soaring, 20-foot ceilings and large, exposed posts. It sits on 2 acres and comes with a tennis court and swimming pool.
The Real Tenant of Beverly Hills
Taylor Armstrong’s saga on the reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is being given another dose of reality, this time about tenants’ rights.
The owners of the house that she’s renting have decided to sell. Listed for $3.695 million, the owners would prefer that Armstrong and her daughter leave now that the home is listed in the Bel Air real estate market.
According to TMZ, Armstrong, whose husband Russell took his life after a financial scandal while she was forced to lean on her “RHOBH” co-stars, has no intention of hurrying out of the home she’s lived in since 2008.
