Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Goes On A $1.2M Texas-Size Tour Of TV History

9 Jul

Chuck Norris is karate-chopping his way through the real estate market maze and Million Dollar Listing New York‘s Ryan Serhant is taking us along for the mansion-packed adventure.

And if this home looks familiar, it had its own starring role on Norris’s long-running series Walker, Texas Ranger – and for $1.2 million you can own the Texas-size tidbit of TV history.

This sprawling 7,362 square-foot spread is actually owned by Norris’s brother Aaron and now that it’s completely renovated it needs a new owner with some deep pockets.

Because everything is bigger in Texas, it only seems fitting that this Mediterranean-ranch style manse was also expanded to 4 oversized bedrooms, a whopping 9 bathrooms, large media room, even bigger poolside patio, 3-car garage, full gym, and an extra 884 square-foot detached studio to practice those crane-kicking moves.

Even more importantly, can you spot the ’90s TV memorabilia on the wall?

Let Ryan Serhant take you on a tour of TV history in the CB! video above.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Takes A Tour Inside Christina Aguilera’s $10M Beverly Hills Mansion

28 Jun

What do a Grammy-winning diva and a tiger-blooded warlock have in common? A swanky zip code.

Christina Aguilera just splashed out some serious dough for a home in the 90210 nabe right next to non-other than “winner” Charlie Sheen himself. But don’t worry, this isn’t (another) celebrity cry for help, it just so happens that Xtina’s new $10.75M Beverly Hills mansion (she used her power of persuasion and negotiation to knock off $750k) is near some big names like Sheen, Paris Hilton, and guitar legend Slash.

The exclusive gated community known as Mulholland Estates is a popular spot for some pricey pads, with its state-of-the-art security systems and ultra-secluded privacy. And the home itself is just as glam as one would expect from the over-the-top songstress. Coming in at over 11,000 square-feet, the massive Mediterranean digs come with 6 bedrooms and 9 baths and sit on a jaw-dropping 36,414-square feet of land (that leaves over 25,000 square-feet alone for outside entertaining).

Designed by Hablinski Manion, the grander-than-life abode with exposed beam ceilings, formal living and dining room, wood paneled library, 2 bars, screening room (so Paris can come over to watch some of her memorable music videos), gourmet kitchen, and enclosed loggia (basically a really fancy walkway). Upstairs is just as posh with a master suite and fireplace, office, large terrace (with yet another fireplace), and spa.

Outside, the newly-svelte platinum blonde can take a dip with her beau Matt Rutler in the saltwater pool and kick up her Louboutins in the bath house and gazebo.

Aside from all of these awesome too-good-to-be-true amenities, the manse is pretty much foolproof when it comes to paps and party crashers trying to live it up in style with her infamous neighbors.

Where can we get an invite to the block party?

Let Ryan take you on a tour of Christina’s new digs in the Realty Byte video above.

Ryan’s Realty Byte: Chelsea Handler’s Ex Love Nest Hits Market For $3.95 Million

30 Apr

Moving on from a guy can be hard, but moving on from a guy and moving out of a beachside penthouse… now that’s a recipe for real estate revenge.

Back in 2008, funny gal Chelsea Handler and her-then boyfriend, former E! Networks CEO Ted Harbert, bought a swanky 3,319 square-foot pad in Marina del Rey, Calif. for $3.7 million. But like all good things, they must come to an end. So after they broke it off in 2010, the late night queen also bid farewell to her high-rise home, which is now up for sale for a cool $3.95 million.

With a 400 square-foot wrap around terrace, full wet bar (which the Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea author must have thoroughly enjoyed), 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and over-the-top amenities (not to mention a 100-gallon fish tank), the place is an adult-friendly party pad.

But if boasting panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and private balconies don’t make the price tag worth it, the A-list abode also comes equipped with on touch fog-out glass showers, a touch screen controller for all lights, blinds AND TVS, iPod adaptors in every room, and a custom built kitchen.

And if the outspoken, fun-loving Chelsea Lately host wanted to enjoy a little bit more out of pretty posh digs, she could use the Azzurra High Rise’s amenities which cover everything from concierge, rooftop sky-lounge, 2 spas, pool, and fitness center.

Now back to that sweet revenge. When you move on from something so chic, how do you let your ex know you’ve seriously moved on? By moving up, of course. Just after the break-up she splashed out $5.9 million on a Bel Air mansion. The completely renovated 28,009 square-foot estate comes with 6 bedrooms, 7 baths, huge living room, 2 family rooms, gourmet kitchen, and gym. Oh, and a 50-foot pool and everyone needs an outside kitchen and panic room (just in case any exes make those unannounced visits.) Not to mention she now conveniently lives thisclose to her BFF Jennifer Aniston.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Peeks Inside Cameron Diaz’s Decadent NYC Digs

1 Mar

This is Ryan Serhant‘s dream come true.

Cameron Diaz has made him the happiest man in the world.

Thanks to ELLE D cor we can all get a glimpse of the big screen beauty’s boudoir and this real estate reality star is thanking his lucky stars.

And like we all expected, Diaz’s domain doesn’t disappoint.

Her NYC pad has famed designer Kelly Wearstler working her magic throughout the 2,400-square-foot prewar apartment, done up in luxe hues of burnished metals and rich minerals.

And this place is everything the always designer-clad Diaz is about – sexy and bold – with a dash of decorative surprises like pink onyx, tons of brass, drawers lined in raw black silk, hammered metal on the back of the doors, and an emerald green kitchen.

Those four-hour long meetings with Wearstler were worth it for the The Other Woman star: “I’m surrounded by things that mean something to me,” Diaz told the mag. “That’s what a home is.”

Let’s go inside her decadent digs in the Realty Byte video above.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Tours Ellen Degeneres’s $13 Million Cali Ranch

21 Nov

It was only two months ago that Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi plunked down $26 million big ones for a seaside Montecito, Calif. spread.

So obviously they don’t need a measly $13 million mansion now that they’ve upgraded.

The real estate savvy pair, who besides their chicly cropped manes, are known for flipping properties and for $12.995M the lucky new owner will call this 8-bedroom and 10.5 bath estate home just 45 minutes outside of L.A.

The couple’s Hidden Valley Ranch (not the salad dressing) is a stunning 26-acre equestrian compound and a nature’s lover’s paradise. But this isn’t your typical ranch.

The imaginative retreat consists of 8 farmhouse cottages all with their own vintage and contemporary style mixing 20th-century designs by Jean Prouv and Arne Jacobsen with industrial furnishings, old portraits and fencing masks for a cozy, comfortable setting by decorator Jay Holman and designer Cliff Fong.

Other over-the-top features include an updated windmill, tree house and, yes, a yoga pavilion.

Perfect for entertaining their plethora of celeb friends, there’s the “Art” and “Romantic” barns that have separate kitchens and loads of space to use as a workshop or office area.

And for more outdoors fun, there are walking trails, a fenced in tennis court and basketball hoop.

It wouldn’t be a ranch without some horses, so you’ll find state-of-the-art facilities with six double-sized stables, hay barn, stable lounge, radiant floor heat, new dressage and jumping arenas and an adjoining judges’ stand.

The carefully executed landscaping, that took the talk show host one year to revamp, also comes with environmentally conscious amenities from over 100 newly planted trees along the main road to the use of recycled materials in construction and d cor.

Let Million Dollar Listing’s Ryan Serhant take you on a personal tour across the stunning 26-acres in the CB! video above.
