Cher owned this amazing home in Beverly Hills from 1980 to 1988, when she sold it to Eddie Murphy. It is now on the market for $85 million. Though the home isn’t listed yet, the Wall Street Journal reports that it sits on 16 acres, and has a Moroccan guest home, a barn, two rings for riding horses, a swimming pool and a tennis court.


Remember how the Obamas are renting a castle in DC once they leave the White House? Well the owner of said castle, Joe and Giovanna Lockhart, have to move somewhere to make room for the First family and now we know where! According to city records, the Lockharts have just paid $5.5 million for a pad at 415 Greenwich Street in Tribeca.


The home where the young wizard Harry Potter (aka Daniel Radcliffe) grew up on Sherbrooke Road in London has hit the market for £1.45 million, or about $2 million. According to the Daily Mail, Radcliffe lived in the home until the age of 12, a year after the first Harry Potter film came out.


Daren Metropoulos, son of billionaire Dean Metropoulos and a principal at investment firm Metropoulos & Co. and a co-owner of Hostess Brands (maker of Twinkies), has purchased the Playboy mansion for an undisclosed sum.


He penned some of the most enduring power ballads of the early 1980s – classics like “I Want to Know What Love Is” and “Waiting for a Girl Like You.” Foreigner guitarist and founding member Mick Jones continues to reap the fruits of that labor, having just bought a two-bedroom Soho co-op unit for $4.9 million. The apartment at the Soho Gallery Building at 420 West Broadway – also known as 94 Thompson Street – features direct elevator access, a fireplace and a landscaped terrace
