An Inside Peek

Whether you are in the market or not, nothing is more voyeuristic than looking into homes for sale and even more so when the owner is a celebrity.

Sally Field's 5,964 square foot house in Malibu is on the market and can be yours for a mere 5.9 million. The house is complete with a horse paddock and tennis courts and with the recent cancellation of Brothers & Sisters, perhaps the price will come down:)

Featured in Architectural Digest last March, Jennifer Anniston's tranquil mid-century modern home in Beverly Hills takes zen to a new level. Designed by interior designer Stephen Shadley, the five bedroom- eight bathroom spread goes for a mere 42 million.

The 9,000 square foot house that Kiss From a Rose and Project Runway built (that would be singer Seal and model/tv/tycoon Heidi Klum) is available in Beverly Hills. Complete with the prerequisite swimming pools and added bonus of covered loggias, asking price is 6.9 million.

My personal favorite is singer Katy Perry's Christmas gift of a home (given by her then-boyfriend-now-husband Russell Brand). The Roman style estate is on the market for 3.395 million in Los Feliz and has over twenty sets of french doors. The exquisite exterior features a pool and a stone dining pergola along with a three car garage (used to store Perry's vast collection of costumes).

And last but not least, the former Pacific Palisades Mediterranean estate of the "Governator" and Maria Shriver (1986-1991) is on the market for 23.5 million and yes, this is the house where the infamous housekeeper was first hired. The 2.5 acre compound is complete with a large lawn for horse jumps, duck pond and seven bedrooms which could keep a even the most efficient housekeeper occupied for days.
