House of Gucci
Her grandfather Guccio Gucci started the famous Italian fashion brand and her father Aldo Gucci took it worldwide, but now Patricia Gucci is looking to make a splash with her own Coachella Valley house. Literally.
The Gucci heiress has listed her exclusive, 23-acre retreat located just outside of Palm Desert, Calif., for $9 million. The 11,000-square-foot home includes 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a screening room, tennis court and pool.
Deejay in Da House
Sam Ronson is no stranger to fame. Her brother Mark Ronson is the uber producer who brought the world Amy Winehouse’s fabulous disc “Back To Black.” And her most famous girlfriend was Lindsay Lohan, with whom Ronson garnered more than her fair share of tabloid fodder and paparazzi attention.
Well, luckily for Ronson, there’s not a lot of extra room at the new Santa Monica bungalow she just bought for herself. The record-spinning hipster paid $810,000 for a remodeled, but small place to hang her pork-pie hats.
Annie Leibovitz Movin’ On Up
It’s hard to imagine why Annie Leibovitz would want to depart from the magnificent work/living arrangement she has created in her 10,000-square-foot townhouse in the heart of New York City's West Village. But three years after the iconic image maker battled money problems, it appears Leibovitz is indeed moving on.
Or, at least, up.
Her three girls attend a school uptown, so the Rolling Stone/Vanity Fair photographer has listed her Greenwich Street townhouse for $33 million. It’s a big-ticket item, but Leibovitz’s home is actually three separate dwellings that have been combined into a main residence, studio and guest quarters, complete with a courtyard. The whole place is picture perfect.
