Hot Property: Comic Kathy Griffin seeks a Bel-Air sale

Kathy Griffin is staging a sale in Bel-Air, putting her gated Mediterranean mansion on the market for $15.995 million. That’s about $5.5 million more than she paid for it four years ago.

The Emmy-winning comedian kept things mostly the same during her stay, as the 13,377-square-foot home features grand living spaces with dramatic beams, pocketing doors and a host of balconies. The largest of the balconies extends from the primary suite, adding 1,100 square feet of space overlooking the surrounding mountains.

A gated driveway approaches the property, leading to a two-story entry with oval windows and wrought-iron accents. From there, arched doorways give way to common spaces such as a formal dining room, a dual-island kitchen and a family room with a wet bar.

Other amenities include a bonus room, wine cellar, movie theater and an office with a fireplace. Eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms complete the floor plan, which

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Buy New Beverly Hills Home for $17.5M

About a month after listing their stylish Beverly Hills pad for $24 million, the celebrity couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have upsized to a brand-new abode in the 90210 for $17.5 million.

The musician and the model have selected a larger, custom-built “design-forward” masterpiece, which was recently completed. And they haven’t strayed too far—their new digs are about 4 miles away from the home they’re selling.

The roomier new place, better suited to the needs of their growing family, is located on a private knoll in Beverly Hills.

Developed by JB Builders, the new construction initially landed on

Director Anthony Russo lists Culbertson House for $6.25 million

Anthony Russo is on a selling streak. A month after shedding his Los Feliz Cape Cod for $3.3 million, the Marvel director is asking $6.25 million for his historic home in Pasadena.

Russo — who’s best known for directing four Marvel movies with his brother Joe — paid $5.8 million for the property two years ago. The listing comes about a year after he made a major upgrade, dropping $15.58 million on Pasadena’s Palladian-inspired Arden Villa.

This home is a bit humbler, but it’s still seeped in history with a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Known as the Culbertson House, it was built 109 years ago by Charles and Henry Greene, the famed brother architects behind the nearby Craftsman masterpiece known as the Gamble House.
