Keeping up with the Jenners
Reality show costars and father-daughter combo Bruce Jenner and Kylie Jenner are no easier to keep up with than the rest of the Kardashian clan when it comes to home buying.
First, former track and field champ Bruce Jenner bought a house in Malibu in an off-market deal for $3.575 million.
Then Kylie Jenner bought a Mediterranean-style home in the gated Calabasas community where her mother and sisters live for $2.6 million.
Bruce Jenner’s renovated contemporary, built in 2010, sits on 11 acres with 360-degree canyon, mountain and ocean views. The mountaintop retreat has glass pocket doors, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and radiant heated floors.
The 3,500 square feet of designer-done living space, with interiors by James Hernandez Interior Design, include a bar, a garage apartment, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
A swimming pool and spa take in views of the Pacific Ocean.
His daughter’s 4,851-square-foot, two-story place, built in 2006, has living, family and dining rooms, two-built-in entertainment centers, a library/study, a breakfast bar, a bonus room, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. There’s also a courtyard and a three-car garage.
Outdoor amenities include a covered patio with a 26-foot-long dining table, a barbecue center and a swimming pool with a spa.
Bruce Jenner, 65, was a 1976 gold medalist in the Olympic Games in Montreal. He has appeared in recent years on the reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as well as the series’ spinoffs. He and costar Kris Jenner, Kylie’s mother, were recently divorced.
Kylie Jenner, who will turn 18 in August, has largely grown up on the family reality series, which centers on the lives of household members. She and sister Kendall Jenner will be featured in an upcoming mobile game.
Marc Shevin and Rory Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties were the listing agents of the Calabasas house. Tomer Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty represented Kylie Jenner.
A spread to croon over
A onetime retreat of entertainer Bing Crosby is on the market in Rancho Mirage at $5 million.
Sitting on nearly 1.4 acres, the Midcentury Modern house has 10-foot-tall front doors that open to a sprawling 6,700 square feet on a single story.
Living and family rooms, a den and a home theater are among living spaces. The kitchen features hand-carved Moroccan doors.
An attached two-bedroom guest suite has a kitchen, a living area and a separate entrance. There’s a 1,400-square-foot master suite for a total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
Sliding glass doors at the back of the house open to views of the Coachella Valley. The outdoor swimming pool was a popular Hollywood party spot during Crosby’s ownership.
The property last sold in 2005 for $2.625 million.
Crosby, who died in 1977 at 74, won a lead actor Oscar for “Going My Way” (1944). He was paired with Bob Hope in the “Road to” movies from 1940 to 1962.
As a singer he recorded more than three dozen No. 1 hits, including the chart-topping “White Christmas.”
Marc Lange and Carl Blea of HOM Sotheby’s International Realty are the listing agents.
A scene worth investigating
Emily Proctor of “CSI: Miami” has listed a house in Santa Monica for $3.995 million.
She put her interior designer skills on display in the Mediterranean-style home, which has a formal entry, cathedral ceilings, a dining room with a bay window, a den, an office with built-ins, French doors, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master suite features a sitting room and a balcony.
Part of the garage has been converted into a music studio. The 1986 home has 4,460 square feet of living space.
A swimming pool with a spa, patio and mature landscaping complete the grounds.
Proctor, 46, starred on “CSI: Miami” from 2002 to 2012. She has also been on “The West Wing” and “White Collar.”
Alexandra Pfeifer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties is the listing agent.
Upcoming stop on his (home) tour
Singer-songwriter John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame has sold a rental house in the Beverly Crest area for $1.475 million.
He also recently sold a home in Scottsdale, Ariz., for $322,000 and bought a 1.38-acre view property to build on in a neighboring resort community.
The Traditional-style single-story home in the 90210 ZIP Code is set on a three-quarter-acre knoll and surrounded by mature trees. The updated house, built in 1961, features vaulted beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace and skylights.
The 1,920 square feet of living space include formal dining and living rooms, a breakfast area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. French doors open to a brick patio and the backyard.
Fogerty, 69, was the lead singer and guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival. The rock band, which formed in the late 1960s and had such hits as “Proud Mary” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame more than two decades ago.
His “1969" world tour this year includes a summer stop at the Hollywood Bowl.
Fogerty later turned to a solo career, where he found continued success. His most recent solo album, “Wrote a Song for Everyone,” was released two years ago.
He bought the property in 2008 for $1.385 million and had leased it out in recent years at $5,400 a month.
Mark Wollman of Hilton & Hyland/Christie’s International Real Estate was the listing agent in Beverly Crest. The sale closed outside the Multiple Listing Service.
