Last time momager Kris Jenner bought a home, it was to get her daughter, Kim Kardashian, and son-in-law, Kanye West, out of her Hidden Hills mansion. Then there was the $ 1.3-million condo she snagged for daughter Kendall Jenner a couple of years ago.

It’s hard to know who she has in mind with her latest, $ 2.285-million purchase, first reported by Trulia.

The 4-bedroom, 5-bath colonial is just 20 minutes from her Hidden Hills estate, in a gated community where many a Kardashian has lived before.

A dining room large enough for the whole family boasts high ceilings and French doors that open onto a romantic courtyard.

A spacious family room and formal living room each has its own fireplace, and the office has French doors leading to the front porch.

The master suite features a sitting room and a giant bathroom with a soaking tub, and the back yard is an entertainer’s paradise with a triple-waterfall pool, spa and bar area.

The listing agents were Tomer and Isidora Fridman of Ewing & Associates Sotheby’s International Real Estate.

Oprah Buys High-Tech Ski Getaway Complete With ‘Wine Mine’

Oprah Winfrey loves hanging out with her oak trees, and now she can commune among the evergreens at her new high-tech mansion in the Colorado ski town of Telluride.

The media mogul paid $ 14 million for a furnished mansion that belonged to businessman and African art collector Bob Wall, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 8,700-square-foot home has everything for the well-heeled ski enthusiast: a mud room, a seven-person hot tub and a faux mining car that connects the mansion with a nearby ski trail.

For winding down after a long day on the slopes, there’s a 56-foot-long “wine mine” traversed by an antique steel ore cart. (See it in the slide show below.)

The ore cart rides on old mine rails in a chilled, humidified room that has “sound effects like you’re moving through a mine shaft and lights that are computerized to flicker like a lantern would in a mine,” said listing agent T.D. Smith with Telluride Real Estate Corp., an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. The tunnel holds 1,600 bottles of wine.

The tech mogul who sold the 2001 home spent nearly five years having it designed and built, Smith said. “The home fits perfectly with its mountainous environment, with wonderfully clean, contemporary lines and an interior that just pops.”

Like any good tech exec, Wall included a host of smart features, including climate control and a weather station.

“He can water his indoor plants from San Francisco using his iPad,” Smith said.

A helicopter flew in the 35-foot-high outdoor tower for this home’s aerial fire pit, which has views of the surrounding woods and Colorado’s San Sophia Mountain Range.

The five-bedroom, 6.5-bath home has a sauna, a guesthouse and a turret-style tower with 360-degree views and an office, seating area and kitchenette.

It’s located on the slope side of Mountain Village, a community that’s connected to historic Telluride by road, but which is often reached by gondola instead.

Queen Elizabeth II Reportedly Buys an Apartment in NYC

Jun 25, 2015 by

Filed under: ,

ZillowThe Royal Family reportedly owns a unit on the 18th floor of a building designed by British architect Norman Foster.

By Streeteasy

What kind of pied-a-terre would an 89-year-old British monarch require to make New York City feel like an extension of the royal palace? According to The Real Deal, that would be an $ 8 million, three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment on the 18th floor at 50 United Nations Plaza.

Is it Buckingham Palace East? Well, no. The Norman Foster-designed building in Turtle Bay is far more sleek and modern, and there’s nary a beefeater standing sentry in this luxurious, secure and private building adjacent to the U.N.

With Buckingham Palace in need of serious renovation, Queen Elizabeth II might be plotting getaways beyond her current options including Windsor Castle, Balmoral Castle in Scotland and Sandringham House in Norfolk.

What drew the queen to this unit? It might have something to do with the 50-foot long dining room and grand foyer, suitable for large-scale entertaining. There’s also a private motor court and garden entry to the building. Last, but not least, the queen has tapped the shoulder of architect Foster before — when she knighted him back in 1990.

And if the queen winds up making only rare use of the place, perhaps she’ll allow her grandchildren and great-grandkids to use the pad the next time they’re in town to hang out with Jay Z and Beyonce at a Brooklyn Nets game.

Phil Collins Buys J.Lo’s Former Paradise in Miami Beach

Jun 21, 2015 by

Phil Collins just snagged a slice of tropical paradise that once belonged to Jennifer Lopez. The $ 33 million deal was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Built in 1929, the Mediterranean-style estate in Miami Beach includes 200 feet of waterfront on Biscayne Bay. The home measures 12,153 square feet and boasts seven bedrooms, 9.5 baths, and views of the Miami skyline.

J.Lo sold the home in 2005 to businessman Mark Gainor, who told the Journal he spent three years renovating it. Against all odds, he removed the roof and reconfigured the second floor, including creating a roughly 1,000-square-foot master suite.

He kept the exterior’s charming villa style, but remade the inside for contemporary living with an elevator, a giant wine cellar, custom walk-in closets and a three-car garage.

Built for privacy and entertainment, the gated, 1.2-acre spread features a royal palm forest, a pool and spa, a summer kitchen and a cabana, plus a large new dock with a boat lift and double jet-ski lift.

The listing agent for the sale to Collins was Nelson Gonzalez of EWM Realty International, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate.
