“High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale has graduated from her Los Angeles home. She and her husband, Christopher French, have listed their abode in the Los Feliz neighborhood for $5,795,000, Variety reports.

If the couple secure a sale at that amount, they’ll be singing a happy tune. They purchased the place for $4.1 million in 2019.

Built in 1923 but since updated, the Mediterranean villa is described as a “reimagined” space with designer finishes, which retains its original character.

The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home features European oak floors and lime-washed walls, for an Old World-style warmth. Other details include bold wallpaper prints in the entry, multiple fireplaces, and handsome light fixtures.

The actress has posted photos of her eye-catching home on her Instagram account, including this appealing pic of her gorgeous kitchen.

“I never thought how nice it is to have a fireplace in your kitchen,” Tisdale wrote. “We use it morning and night, especially since it’s the coldest around that time. Old homes with new charm.”

With 4,214 square feet, the layout includes a living area with fireplace, dining room, as well as the stylish kitchen with a breakfast nook, and clearly, a working fireplace. Upstairs, the four large bedrooms with views and bathrooms include a master bedroom that opens to a private deck.

Outside, the grounds, on one-third of an acre, offer privacy and lush landscaping. A covered seating area has space for dining and lounging. The pool includes a sundeck.

The property also comes with a garage and a two-story guesthouse with a spacious living room, powder room, updated kitchen, and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs. This appears to be where the creative couple have set up a recording studio.

Tisdale has popped up on the real estate scene before. In 2016, she and French placed their Studio City home on the market for around $2.66 million, after owning it for just about a year.

The two reportedly sold the five-bedroom spread with a resort style backyard to Haylie Duff, who has since sold it.

The couple last owned a historic Hollywood Hills house purchased for about $2.66 million in 2017, which they sold at a profit two years later, Variety reported.

When not flipping real estate, the former Disney star has appeared in many movies, such as “Grounded for Life,” “Scary Movie 5,” and “Bring It On: In It to Win It.”

Most recently, she starred in a CBS sitcom, “Carol’s Second Act.” In 2019, the singer released her third studio album, “Symptoms.” The busy star is also a panelist on the Fox competition show “Masked Dancer.”

French is the frontman of the band Annie Automatic.

Anthony Paradise with Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.

Candice Bergen Selling Her East Hampton Country House for $18M

Actress Candice Bergen and her husband, real estate magnate Marshall Rose, have placed their longtime Hamptons home on the market for $18 million, according to Variety.

The Emmy winner decided to list the award-winning home that she and Rose renovated together after they married in 2000.

The home was featured in Architectural Digest, which noted that the original architect, Jaquelin T. Robertson of Cooper, Robertson Partners, returned to make “substantial changes” to the home in the early 2000s to reflect the couple’s more casual lifestyle.

It was a delicate undertaking. Rose had built the home with his first wife, Jill, who died in 1996. Bergen’s first husband, the French director Louis Malle, died in 1995.

Bergen and Rose embarked on a respectful renovation.

“It was a beautifully thought-out house,” Bergen told Architectural Digest. “And it was a delicate challenge to respect its history but reinterpret it as ours.”

In 2004, the East Hampton spread was updated to reflect what the two wanted: a year-round retreat from their Manhattan apartment.

The classic shingle-style Hamptons home has 4,500 square feet of living space, including six bedrooms and 6.5 baths.

A sunroom has since been enclosed for a breakfast and sitting room, and the kitchen was remodeled.

The second level features a sitting area on the landing, and the master suite is spacious enough to include a sitting area with a sofa and chairs.

The 1.8-acre property features landscaped grounds, gardens, a lawn, and a pool. There’s also a separate guesthouse.

Bergen and Rose also own an apartment in Manhattan. Bergen, 74, has a long and storied career both in movies and TV. She is best known for her star turns in “Murphy Brown” and “Boston Legal.”

Most recently, the actress starred in the film “Let Them All Talk,” with Meryl Streep, Dianne Wiest, and Lucas Hedges.

Edward R. Petrie with Compass holds the listing.

‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Reportedly Buys Bel-Air Mansion for $27.5M

The host of the “Daily Show,” Trevor Noah, has picked up another purchase in Bel-Air, the L.A. Times reported. 

The comedian has shown that he has seriously expensive taste in real estate, splashing out a whopping $27.5 million on a luxury mansion in the swanky Los Angeles neighborhood. The deal closed at the end of the year, realtor.com® records show.

The contemporary mansion had been on the market for as much as $36 million in 2018, but the price was reduced over the years. It was first cut to $32.5 million and landed at $29.5 million in 2020, before Noah scooped it up for an even lower amount.

If the transaction seems familiar, it’s because it isn’t his first foray into the Bel-Air market. In 2019, the stand-up star purchased a posh pad in the same area for $20.5 million. He then flipped that mansion for $21.7 million in August. He has now jumped back into the real estate game with an even pricier property. 

Designed by the architect Mark Rios and built in 2014, the home spans 11,000 square feet and offers indoor-outdoor living, with city and ocean views. 

The roomy floor plan includes six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and three powder rooms, in a residence surrounded by gardens and pathways. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living area lead out to a pool. The main level layout also features a chef’s kitchen, formal dining room, and den.

Upstairs, the master suite features dual bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes. Another four en suite bedrooms, office, or staff quarters complete the second floor.

Other luxe amenities include a gym, spa, office, lounge, third-floor screening room with rooftop terrace, and a separate guest suite with a game room.

The property is also equipped with an elevator and Crestron automation, as well as a security office and motor court.

Noah, 36, has hosted the “Daily Show” since 2015. He has been delivering a stripped-down show from his Manhattan condo since the coronavirus pandemic.

The show, now dubbed “The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah,” features him wearing a seemingly limitless wardrobe of hoodies in varying shades. He picked up the Hell’s Kitchen penthouse for $10 million in 2017.

The South African has been sharing his good fortune, and has reportedly been paying the salaries of 25 of his crew himself, since they were put on furlough when the in-studio production was halted.

It seems he can afford it. Forbes ranked the Emmy-award winning entertainer as the fourth highest-paid comedian in 2019, with a reported income of $28 million, mainly for his stand-up shows. His memoir, “Born a Crime,” was a critically heralded New York Times bestseller.

Linda May with Hilton & Hyland represented the seller. Jonah Wilson with Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.
