A Westside compound that "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had been leasing for the last several months has come on the market at $5.995 million.
Built in the 1990s, the west-facing property encompasses almost half an acre and overlooks Stone Canyon Reservoir and Bel-Air.
The main house features an open-plan living and dining room, a den, four bedrooms and 31/2 bathrooms. The recently renovated guesthouse contains an additional bedroom and 11/2 bathrooms. A pool, a spa and a dining pavilion are outdoors.
Pattinson, 25, and Stewart, 21, have starred in the "Twilight Saga" series of films since the original "Twilight" vampire romance movie in 2008. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1," which opened last month, was the No. 1 film at the box office over the five-day Thanksgiving period, according to an estimate from distributor Summit Entertainment. "Breaking Dawn — Part 2" is set for release next year.

Moving a short drive away?
Professional golfer Fred Couples has listed his second home in La Quinta at $4.195 million.
The Spanish-style villa has a courtyard with a fountain. The nearly half-acre site has mountain views, a swimming pool with a spa and a fire pit. Interior features include limestone and wood floors, arched windows, a great room with an oversized stone fireplace, a wine room and two master suites with stone fireplaces and terraces. There are four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms. The roughly 5,200-square-foot house is being sold furnished.
Among community amenities are two fitness centers, a swimming pool and a private golf course designed by Tom Fazio.

He is selling because he plans to build a custom home in the same development. Public records show Couples bought the property in 2009 for $3,047,500.

A change of venue for TV judge
