Celebrity Home of the Week: Sigrid Olsen's Home

Sorry for the late posting.  Today is such a terrible news day. One day after the mass shooting at Fort Hood, we now have another mass shooting, this time in Orlando. It's the kind of day to make us question why we do what we do.

First Lady of France Carla Bruni's Childhood Castle For Sale

Carla Bruni has many titles: wife of French President Nicholas Sarkozy, former singer/songwriter, former model, and current fashion icon who gave our First Lady Michelle Obama (shown with Bruni above) a run for her money at this year's G-20 summit.

Well she's also an Italian-born heiress who grew up in this castle in Italy, which happens to be for sale with an asking price of around $28 million (U.S. dollars):

It's grand of course! Still don't know if we'd ever want to live in a castle, though. See interior and exterior photos at PropGoLuxury. Hat tip to Luxuo for alerting us to it!

After checking out the photos, let us know if you'd want to live there!

Poppy Montgomery's Spanish Colonial Home

When we featured Enrique Murciano yesterday, we did not realize that CBS had just canceled his show, Without A Trace.  That's too bad.  Oh well, since we're already focused on that show, we figured we might as well take a look at the home of his co-star, Australian-born Poppy Montgomery.  And, as with Enrique's home, we were again pleasantly surprised!

EXCLUSIVE! Enrique Murciano Buys Home in Hollywood Hills

It took a hottie with Cuban roots like Enrique Murciano to say ENOUGH with the Spanish mediterranean homes!  This TV star of Without a Trace just bought a mid-century modern home in the Hollywood Hills.  He purchased the 4BR/3BA home in August for $1.6 million. 

It took a lot of digging, but we found the photos!!!

We love mid-century houses and think this one is a fabulous example of what makes them so great to live in.  Like most, this one is deceptively low-key.  The front is unassuming, yet the back has a little surprise!

Lamar Odom -- Back on the Market

TMZ is reporting that Lamar Odom has put his Manhattan Beach, California mansion on the market. He's asking $2.39 million. Guess he really is looking to get a new place with his new wife, Khloe Kardashian. Anyway, this one looks like a Spanish mediterranean--but we all know a real one when we see one. Just like we all know a real marriage when we see one too!

Charlie Sheen's House Up For Sale

Yup!  We're talking about another Spanish mediterranean style home! Okay, maybe it's more of an adobe style, but we love it.  This one is owned by Charlie Sheen and his wife, Brooke Meuller.  We first learned about it from one of our favorite blogs, Hooked on Houses.  The home is located in Los Feliz, California.  (Be sure to check out the homes of other Los Feliz celebs John Hamm and January Jones of AMC's Mad Men.) 

Charlie and Brooke are asking $3.7 million for their home.  It's absolutely gorgeous inside!  Here's a teaser:

Jackson Wanted to Be Fresh King of Bel Air

TMZ reported last week that before his death Michael Jackson was negotiating to purchase this 18,020 square foot 15BR/16.5BA home in Bel Air.  He apparently wanted to recreate Neverland.  Sadly, we believe that this ornate over-the-top mega mansion was more his style than the beautiful French country home located on Neverland Ranch.  Sigh.

For the rest of the story and to launch a video tour of the home, go to TMZ's site:
