buckinghamNo word on where Fleetwood Mac rocker Lindsey Buckingham is heading to next, but he and his wife have turned into quite the real estate investors — and their latest home, a true celebrity compound in Brentwood, California, is now up for grabs.

Realtor.com reports that Buckingham and his interior designer wife Kristen bought a 1.2-acre double lot for $6.6 million in 2004, and have listed the custom home they built and decorated for $29.5 million. Several years ago, the two bought a $5.8 million lot and built a spec home, and eventually sold it for $19 million.

This latest listing is very private, sitting behind double gates and tons of lush landscaping. Inside, the main home is full of Old-World, European touches, without feeling stuffy. (more…)

Rock ‘n’ roll like the best of them in a custom-fitted geodesic dome! Best known for its famed owner, guitarist Nicky Panicci, it has been masterfully restored into one of the most unique properties to ever hit Eagle Rock — or the country for that matter. And the iconic rocker compound could be yours to the tune of $1.699 million.

Living here means owning not one, but two expansive structures on a rare half-acre lot.

In addition to the main house and separate garage, a second accessory dome dwelling, built in the 1980s, sits at the top of the lot. This is the perfect place to escape the city and soak up the mountain views.

This is what it looks like to live on Legends Lane! Arnold Palmer’s custom-built Craftsman in Unity Township, Pennsylvania, is up for grabs and it could be yours for under $1 million. The stunning woodland retreat backs to Arnold Palmer Drive and offers a glimpse into the legend’s lifestyle.

Ideally perched at the end of a private road, on a 0.58-acre lot sits the four-bedroom, three-full-and-two-half bathroom estate. Lushly landscaped and enveloped by nature, the home offers rustic warmth and elegance. The listing agent calls it a “custom-built, craftsman home unlike any other.”

SpellingWhen Aaron and Candy Spelling built The Manor, their lavish 14-bedroom, 56,500-square-foot estate in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills, they ticked off a lot of neighbors.

“The Spellings were generally unpopular among their Mapleton Drive neighbors, who watched the French chateau-style mansion slowly take shape over two years, at an estimated cost of $12 million,” Realtor.com explained a few years ago when current owner (and British heiress) Petra Ecclestone bought the home at age 22. “At the time, they described dealing with heavy construction equipment and throngs of curious onlookers.”

In fact, one neighbor filed an injunction against the Spellings that sought to limit the number of construction trucks that came to the property and to require reimbursement for any damage to neighbors’ property.

Before the Spellings began building, they had to tear down the home of another Hollywood legend — Bing Crosby, who lived in a 15,000 square foot (what a shack, right?) mansion from 1943 to 1964.

Ecclestone bought the home in 2011, and briefly placed it on the market in 2016 for $200 million. It was listed again seven days ago for $160 million. (more…)

Game of ThronesAre you the ultimate “Game of Thrones” fan? Are you sure? Because maybe you can’t lay claim to that unless you pony up $656,452 for the castle in Northern Ireland that has served the series as Riverrun Castle, the ancestral home of Catelyn Stark.

Gosford Castle — or, you know, Riverrun, was of course also the site of the Red Wedding from the HBO show’s third season as well.

But even if you’re not a Game of Thrones fan, the history behind the castle and the income property potential might also sway you toward opening up your bank account. (more…)

Strait“I still have my home in San Antone
When I greet my neighbor with a ‘hi y’all’
I’m wealthy as a king upon a throne
You can have your mansion or your cottage small
I’ll just take my home in San Antone”

Or, you know, not. Seems George Strait is putting his San Antonio Santa Fe-style abode on the market — and if you’re looking for plenty of room to roam and some pretty plush living, this estate in The Dominion might just be the luxury property you’re looking for.

How do we know? Well, there’s the 12.2 secluded acres that come with the property at 10 Davenport, the one-of-a-kind design by the late Bill Tull, 14 hand-sculpted fireplaces, stained glass windows, Saguaro cactus rib shutters, custom long leaf yellow pine hardwood floors, and a custom-designed copper bar top, for starters.

bing crosbyIt’s been decades since the late Bing Crosby moved to the remote Elko, Nevada, but his presence still looms large in the town — and his ranch there is now up for sale.

Crosby purchased property there in the 1940s with the idea that it would become a respite for his family, remote enough to be able to shed the expectations that came with being a famous movie star and singer. He would end up owning seven ranches in the area around the town, which is about 400 miles from Las Vegas.

His Lawson Ranch property is up for sale for $7.28 million — and while that might seem like a premium, it includes a working cattle ranch, a private airstrip and hangar, and a six-bedroom main house that serves as a working bed and breakfast currently. There are additional buildings that serve as living quarters for guests and staff as well.

The original homestead from the 1860s is also still on the site, and has been preserved.

AspenWhile the house itself may look a bit different from when John Denver and his wife Annie bought it in the 1970s, the Aspen estate still has the views that inspired him to write “Starwood in Aspen.”

The local couple that bought the home in 2016 put the home on the market last month, after doing extensive remodeling, telling the Denver Business Journal that they installed new floors, and replaced the windows and the roof. They took pains to save the fireplaces, stained-glass work, copper sinks and fixtures, and the cabinetry, which was refinished and, in places, repurposed.

Denver purchased the home, and expanded it while he lived there. (more…)
