Mansion Fit for a Supermodel
Tyra Banks is saying goodbye to her Beverly Hills home of 12 years and putting it on the market for $6.5 million. The Spanish Colonial, built in 1926, boasts four bedrooms and seven bathrooms across its 5,740 square feet of living space. Nestled on a 0.25-acre lot with overlooking views of Los Angeles, Banks' home is ideal for entertaining, with a sparkling backyard swimming pool, expansive green lawns, an outdoor kitchen and living room, a media room and a chef's kitchen. Banks purchased the property in June 2004 for $3.08 million. (Photos courtesy of Open House)
"Hello," Beverly Hills!
Adele is saying "hello" to 90210. The British singer recently purchased a Beverly Hills estate for $9.5 million, according to Zillow. The two-story gated four-bedroom, six-bathroom home is 6,600 square feet and houses an upstairs library, exposed white beams throughout and a large kitchen with a chandelier-adorned breakfast area. After putting in hours in the studio, the Grammy-winning singer can take a dip in the backyard swimming pool or spa and enjoy an outdoor meal under the light-strung gazebo.

Old-World Spanish Made for TV
TV actress Meredith Monroe, widely known for her role as Andie McPhee on Dawson's Creek, is listing her Sherman Oaks Spanish abode for $2.3 million. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, two-story villa sits on a 0.24-acre lot and is decorated with Spanish design throughout, including colorful tiles, a customized carved 8-foot Spanish door and exposed wood beams. To keep cool in the valley during the Southern California summer months, new residents can wade in the turquoise pool, sit under the waterside cabana or bring the fresh air indoors while lounging in the backyard pool house. Monroe purchased the home in October 2000 for $400,000. (Photos courtesy of Open House)
Hot Sale in Encino
98 Degrees bandmember Nick Lachey is saying goodbye to his Encino hideaway. Just one month after the musician listed his six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house that he shares with his wife, Vanessa, he scored a full-price sale on the 8,134-square-foot gated home for $3.99 million. Situated on a cul-de-sac, the 1981-built abode includes a living room, a theater room with stadium seating, a formal dining room, a butler's pantry, a chef's kitchen (equipped with Viking appliances) and a large backyard that has a grassy field, fire pit, pool cabana/guest unit and large swimming pool. He purchased the home in August 2011 for $2.85 million. (Photos courtesy of Open House and Zillow)
