Celebrity Living: Paris Hilton’s Sunset Strip home for sale

Granddaughter of hotelier Conrad Hilton, the former Sunset Strip-Hollywood Hills home of super-socialite heiress Paris Hilton is now on the market priced at $4.8 million (U.S.).

As the inventor of the concept of being famous for being famous and accidentally making sex tapes a popular vehicle for others to gain their foothold in the celebrity world, those who have looked deeper than Hilton’s party-girl image are fully aware that this gorgeous heiress is a workhorse when it comes to creating and promoting her brands, whether it be her perfume line, accessory stores, acting on television and in films, authoring her book Confessions of an Heiress, a New York Times best seller, recording albums or hiring out as a hot celebrity DJ. From tabloid fodder to highly successful entrepreneur, Hilton’s story has been from riches to more riches through her own hard work.

Hilton started her career as a model for Donald Trump’s agency, Trump Model Management, while still a teenager. Her looks, family connections and lifestyle amid the wealthiest social circles made her popularity soar when she was featured in tabloids and entertainment news.

When ex-boyfriend, poker player Rick Salomon, released a sex tape which he filmed during their affair, Hilton was devastated but shortly thereafter co-starred with her friend Nicole Richie in the hit television reality series The Simple Life, which ran for five seasons on Fox. It was during this time frame when Hilton lived in her Hollywood Hills home that is now for sale.

Though now living and operating out of Ibiza, Spain, Paris travels most of the year promoting her brands and doing DJ gigs. She occasionally returns to the U.S. to visit family. Now engaged to The Secret Circle star Chris Zylka, Hilton is currently planning her 2019 wedding. Her most recent estimated wealth was approximately $300 million, which the tabloids gleefully report has increased by several million dollars with the gift of her pricey engagement ring.

The house Hilton called home during the filming of her reality television series is a three-story, Spanish-style property overlooking Sunset Strip and sweeping views of the Los Angeles city lights. Built in 1926, the 3,064 sq. ft. house includes four bedrooms and four baths, formal living and dining rooms that open to a courtyard, and a large eat-in kitchen that opens to the backyard with high-low terraces, lawn, swimming pool, spa and firepit.

Old Hollywood-style glamour elements include dark wood floors, wood-beamed ceilings, pool cabanas and impressive chandeliers, which have always been hallmarks of star-studded California real estate. There is also a game room with pool table, a spacious media room, guest quarters, den and separate office.

The master suite is pure Hollywood sparkle. Hilton brought in her team of decorators for the house to turn it into a true heiress-style abode as they had done for her other homes. These same furnishings are included in the sale.

Hilton’s glamorous Hollywood Hills home and her original furnishings, where she lived during the five seasons of her television program The Simple Life are now for sale priced at $4.8 million (U.S.). Co-listing agents are Rebekah Schwartz Sklar and Hilton’s uncle, Mauricio Umansky of The Agency in Beverly Hills.

Jamie Dornan classic California home for sale

The star of Fifty Shades of Grey puts his classic mid-century modern California home on the market for over $3 million.

Northern Irish actor, Jamie Dornan, was best known for his lead role in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey and should be even better known around Tinsel Town for his flawless taste in picking good value in real estate.

Whether well guided or through good instincts, the house he chose in 2011 at the start of filming the television series Once Upon a Time and while filming Fifty Shades, is a classic California mid-century modern with extra design perks to make it ultra charming. Having now returned to his residence in Cotswolds, England, he has put his Hollywood house on the market for $3.195 million (U.S.).

Nestled in the Hollywood Hills among large shade trees at the end of Nichols Canyon Road, the 2,510-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath mid-century home was built in 1959 but underwent an extensive update prior to Dornan’s purchase.

Capitalizing on the pleasant year-round climate, the centre of the home has a large atrium flooding the interior rooms with sunlight and the sound of trickling water wafting from a small waterfall and Zen-like water pond with large stepping stones.

A peaceful retreat yet large and dramatic enough for entertaining, the home also opens to an outdoor terrace and deck with grass area, swimming pool, spa and firepit that is enclosed for privacy by a wall and towering foliage.

Rooms are large with ceiling-to-floor glass walls opening either to the atrium or outdoor entertainment area. There is a double-sided fireplace between the living room and dining room and one kitchen wall is against the glass wall of the atrium, making it feel as though one is cooking outside. The master suite has a walk-through closet and opens to the pool terrace.

Labeled “The Golden Torso” by The New York Times, Dornan became a wellknown male model appearing in campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Hugo Boss, Armani, Dior Homme and Calvin Klein, quickly parlaying his runway skills into television commercials. Vogue ranked Dornan one of the “25 Biggest Male Models of All Time.”

The path from modeling to acting was a natural for Dornan, who appeared in popular American, British and Northern Ireland television series and films. It wasn’t until his part as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy that his box office popularity soared off the charts.

Jamie Dornan’s mid-century modern enclave in the Hollywood Hills is now offered for sale, priced at $3.195 million. The listing agent is Jeff Kohl of The Agency, Beverly Hills, California.
