Hugh Hefner, the 87-year-old playboy, bought a new Hollywood home for his playmate wife, Crystal Harris. The newlyweds are currently living in the Playboy mansion, but this $5 million home in Hollywood Hills was purchased as a second home for Crystal to ensure she had a place to stay if Hugh was away. This new home is just over 2 years old with sharp, ultra-modern features. Four bedrooms, five baths, a deluxe master suite, and a Bontempi kitchen combine for a total of nearly 6,000 square feet. Of course the home is paved with luxe touches ranging from Jerusalem stone walls to walnut floors and floating wood staircases. Outside features a white-glass infinity pool and spa, and architecturally landscaped grounds.
Another recent Hollywood purchase goes to Ashton Kutcher who purchased this $10.8 million dollar home in Los Angeles. The home was once rented by Justin Bieber, who was considering purchasing the home when Ashton Kutcher swept it out from under him. The architectural masterpiece is made entirely of glass, steel and stone. This contemporary style overlooks Lake Hollywood on a half-acre lot with spectacular views. Inside is five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, along with glass-floor bridges, floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple cantilevered rooms and balconies. As if that wasn’t enough, additional amenities include a private movie theatre, spa, gym, massage room, wet bar, and large infinity pool. Makes for quite the bachelor pad for Mr. Kutcher.
