Breaking: KABC's David Ono buys in Toluca Lake

Los Angeles ABC news anchor David Ono is joining the Toluca Lake neighborhood. The co-anchor for ABC7 Eyewitness News recently closed the deal on a $2.125 million four-bedroom, three-bath home that once belonged to famous jazz trumpeter Manny Klein and American pop group Karmin. Ono's purchase of the mini estate includes a 2,378 square-foot main house, a 2,000-square-foot one bed, two bath guesthouse (which also has its own address), and a small town that includes a bank, store and cafe facade complete with sidewalks and street lamps. Outdoors, the journalist can soak in the Southern California sunshine in the 40-foot swimming pool, or unwind by the koi fishpond, read in the separate pool house or enjoy a meal by the backyard BBQ and dining area.

Classic Manhattan with a side of Gramercy Park

Uma Thurman's Manhattan duplex has hit the market for a chic $6.25 million. The Kill Bill actress' 2,800-square-foot limestone-and-brick prewar co-op has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, Trulia reports. But aside from the library, chef's kitchen, Herringbone dark wood floors and three walk-in closets that might woo buyers into owning the light-filled space, perhaps the most idyllic inclusion of the property purchase is access to the highly-exclusive nearby Gramercy Park. Not only does the homeowner have granted entry into the quaint park, but the duplex boasts a Juliet balcony that spans views overlooking the green city oasis. 

Rockin' out California cabin-style

Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden relinquished ownership of his California cabin in Los Angeles' Nichols Canyon when fellow rockstar Chris Cester purchased it from him for $1.55 million, Zillow reports. The Australian drummer, who plays to the beat of band Jet, bought the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, which sits on a half-acre of woods, from recently married Madden. The tucked-away abode boasts a skylit great room, high ceilings and an expanse of windows throughout, as well as a large, paved outdoor terrace and a stream on the estate.
