NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Celebrities looking to sell their mega-mansions are finding that the weak housing market is making that difficult even for the rich and famous. Here's a look at the Hollywood names who are putting their homes on the market as listed on Zillow. Hillary Duff
Mommy-to-be Hillary Duff has put up for sale the mansion that she purchased while starring in Disney's Lizzie McGuire with an asking price of $6.25 million. But according to The Real Estalker, Duff also attempted to sell the estate in 2010, listing it for $7 million the first time around. Real estate records reveal Duff bought the 9,277 square-foot house in Toluca Lake, Calif., in March 2004 for $3.5 million. According to the Zillow listing:
"Years in the making, this private estate features over 9,000 square-feet of the finest materials and custom finishes. Centered on a large courtyard with dramatic high ceilings, all public rooms are perfect for grand entertaining; modern industrial gourmet kitchen of stainless steel and wood, refined master suite with dual baths. Additional features include gym, billiard room, multiple offices and five large bedrooms. A pool and spa adjoining an outdoor living room complete this package. Hidden behind high walls and gates this is a rare opportunity to own one of the most prestigious properties in all Toluca Lake."If you put 20% down on the home with a 30-year-fixed loan, Duff's house would cost about $32,000 per month, according to Zillow estimates.
Dennis HopperDennis Hopper's Venice Beach, Calif., compound was relisted in July for $6.49 million, but the asking price was lowered by $500,000 shortly after. Hopper's property was originally listed in July 2010, shortly after his death, for $6.25 million, but the price was later reduced several times, to as low as $3.2 million. The listing was removed and the home received an extensive makeover.
"Reintroduction of legendary actor and artist Dennis Hopper's stunning compound with improvements just completed by original architect Brian Murphy, AIA. A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase five separate parcels totaling approximately 15,500 square-feet of land; featuring a 4,800 square-foot main house designed by Brian Murphy, AIA, and three, two-story condominiums designed by the legendary architect Frank Gehry. "A true oasis in the city, there is also a lushly landscaped yard, a 100-year-old guest cottage, a sparkling lap pool and a pool house. With its undulating aluminum and steel exterior, the main residence is an ode to the industrial look. "This property represents a truly rare find. It is an artist's dream come true, with its light-filled interiors and its artistic heritage. Close to both Abbot Kinney and Main Street, this property offers both a rich history and unlimited possibilities for a creative live and/or work space celebrating the very best of Venice."
FleaRed Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea had put his Malibu, Calif., home on the market for $4.8 million, but he reduced the asking price to $4 million in August. He first listed the property in 2008 for $2.8 million but removed it from the market shortly afterward.
"This indoor/outdoor ocean and canyon view home brings in the magical 2.4 acre setting of peaceful and serene Sycamore Meadows. High dramatic ceilings, cement floors, three bedrooms and an office/den, free form pool with outside fireplace, mature trees and landscape make this the perfect Malibu experience; beach access to Escondido Beach."
Wayne BradyWayne Brady, who gained celebrity status on Whose Line Is It Anyway, originally put his Sherman Oaks home on the market for $2.2 million, but the price was cut last week to $2 million. Brady purchased the five-bedroom, five-bath property in 2005 for $2.55 million.
"Spectacular celebrity view estate! Located South of the Boulevard, this amazing home features a grand entry which opens up to the living room with romantic fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. The sophisticated dining room has custom lighting and can accommodate a large crowd. The gourmet kitchen offers custom cabinets, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, eating area and walk-in pantry. The large master suite has cozy sitting area, built-in media center, customized walk-in closet and lavish spa style bathroom with whirlpool tub, oversized shower and dual sinks. Enjoy watching movies in the state of the art home theater. In addition, you'll find high ceilings, beautiful moldings and designer touches throughout."One of the more unique features of the home is the kids' treehouse in the backyard that has four rooms.
Brad PittBrad Pitt is finally selling his former bachelor pad. His Malibu home, which he purchased following his high-profile divorce from Jennifer Aniston, is on the market for $13.75 million. According to Real Estalker, the home has been on the real estate market as an $18 million pocket listing, but this is the first time it is an MLS listing.
"One of Malibu's most extraordinary coastline views awaits you from this architectural mid-century home on approximately 1.26 acres situated on the Encinal Bluffs. Enter the private gates and venture down a tree-lined drive, past the tennis court and lap pool to this amazing bluff-top home. This home was completely renovated several years ago and features: walls of glass that open to sweeping coastline views, dark bamboo flooring throughout, a modern stainless kitchen with walk-in refrigerator/freezer and top of the line appliances, breakfast area, family room, dining area, a spectacular master bedroom suite and three additional bedroom suites (two being used as offices)."Looking to expand? The home is approved for an additional two stories.
"The Santa Monica home is a classic 1920s Spanish-style bungalow with a wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floors as well as a Victorian-style front door and British brewery cast iron tiles in the foyer. Coved walls, a circular tower front entry and French doors add to the home's overall 1920s feel. The house's layout includes a large living room, dining room, large den, and additional office. Outside, there is a one-bed, one-bath guest house. Another office space is attached to a two-car garage."But the listing does note that the home may need some remodeling or updating. -- Reported by Jeanine Poggi in New York.
