Celebrity House of the Week: James Franco's Hollywood Chateau

Listen up, all you James Franco-philes out there!  The sexy star seen in Milk, Pineapple Express, and the Spider-Man flicks has placed his gorgeous chateau on the Sunset Strip up for sale.  This right-sized 3BR/3.5BA house has 4,000 sq. ft. and comes with city views.  The asking price for this Hollywood beauty (No, not him!) is $3,695,000.

The master bedroom study above offers a glimpse of the city views as well as the type of decor and architectural details found throughout the house.   We'll show you the master bedroom in a little bit.

There are plenty of other wonderful lounging areas too.  Perhaps even too many!  Here are a couple:

The kitchen and dining areas are also nice:

But we like the bathrooms even better:

Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Houses, Part III

Soon-to-be Baby Mama Kourtney Kardashian came home Saturday night to find out her Calabasas, CA, home had been burglarized.  More than $100,000 worth of watches and jewelry were reportedly stolen, including vintage jewelry left to her by her deceased dad (famed attorney Robert Kardashian), a Cartier watch valued at $30,000, and a Rolex watch belonging to her boyfriend/Baby Daddy Scott Disick.

Kourtney was partying in Vegas the night before at her sister Kim's birthday bash, but was already back in town before the burglary occurred.  She went out for an early dinner with her Baby Daddy-to-be and discovered the burglary upon her return.

Kourtney lives in a 2200+ sq. ft., 2BR/3BA townhouse condo in this gated community (below):

So we wanna know WHO LEFT THE GATE OPEN?!!  Or was this an inside job?

Whatever the case may be, we're sorry for Kourtney that it happened.

UPDATE:  TMZ just ran a story questioning whether it was an inside job.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Houses, Part II

By now, everyone knows that Khloe Kardashian managed to snag herself a baller just like her sister Kim.  Sham or not, Khloe got her man -- NBA Lakers star Lamar Odom -- to "put a ring on it."  They were married (even if not legally) nearly a month ago and continued to haggle over the prenup.  Yesterday, TMZ reported that they finally reached a deal.  We hear from multiple sources that Khloe gets a $5 million house, $500K for every year they stay married, and $25K per month in general support.

Khloe also gets a bunch of other cash to support her clothing/makeup habit, but who are we kidding?  We only care about what kind of house she's going to get!

Khloe and Lamar are reportedly in the market for a home between 8,000 and 10,000 sq. ft., with a pool and basketball court. We don't know if that's enough space, considering they'll probably be living in separate wings.  Maybe they should just ask Bill and Hillary Clinton, who apparently only recently figured out that they need a bigger house!

Anyway, thanks to TMZ, we know that Khloe and her mom went house hunting in Bel Air only days before the wedding.  The house they looked at (below) was listed for $5,999,900--nearly a million dollars over her budget. 

Actually, after looking at the photos, we think it's pretty nice for a generic new Spanish mediterranean. 

But unless the price comes way down or Lamar is feeling extra generous, we guess Khloe will have to strike it off her list!

Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Houses, Part I

While we were on vacay last week, we missed a couple of stories about the Kardashian sisters, the socialites best known for starring in their former hit reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

First up is the most famous of the sisters, the curvaceous Kim Kardashian.  Earlier this month, Real Estalker and other sources reported that she recently listed her 3 bedroom/2.5 bath 1,750 sq. ft. condo in West Hollywood for just under $1.1 million.   We have since heard that she has reunited with her ex-boyfriend NFL star Reggie Bush and that they plan to purchase a home together.

As for the condo, looks like it was pretty generic and she tried really hard to spice it up:

Weird thing is, we found features we really LOVED and ones we really HATED in virtually every room!  Like, we loved the gold-leaf ceiling in the dining room, but then the furniture (especially those chairs!) didn't seem to measure up. 

We also loved the tufted headboard and bench, and the giant mirrored high boy and nightstands in the bedroom (bottom, left).  But we couldn't figure out why she needed a mirrored wall behind the headboard.  The pale colors reflected over and over again merely made the room look washed out.

We appreciate other personal touches like the wallpaper and black ceiling in the powder room, and we'd love to get our hands on that 4-panel Buddha-like wall-hanging in her living room (top left photo).

The bottom line is, Kim is a 29yo celebrity-for-no-reason (other than her bodacious butt!) and she's having fun living on her own in L.A--for a least a little while longer.  Her condo looks both stylish and regular at the same time.  We like that.

Let us know if you think she should have done a better job decorating her condo.

Next up Khloe Kardashian.

King of Comedy Steve Harvey's King-Sized Mansion Up For Sale

Funnyman, actor, radio host, author, and GMA correspondent Steve Harvey has placed his Plano, Texas, mansion up for sale.  His monster home (below) can be yours for only $3.5 million.  This is down from an earlier asking price of $3.95 million. 

Of course, you'd need to find the front door first.  Doesn't this look like two separate homes joined together at the center?  Well, it is!  It turns out that the home on the left is actually his two-story guest house.
