Celebrity Real Estate: Meryl Streep, Elizabeth Gilbert, Reggie Bush

By Laura Vecsey

Meryl’s Choice: Grand Dame of Film Selling in L.A.

Easy come, easy go for Meryl Streep. The Academy Award winner has listed the sleek Los Angeles modern home she bought last February. The plot twist? At a $6.75 million list price, Streep is seeking $2.25 million more than she paid for the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 3,500-square-foot place last year. It comes with all the same furnishings Streep acquired with the property in Feb. 2013. There’s only one direction from the most decorated American actress: No open houses.

Eat, Pray, Sell

Author Elizabeth Gilbert, whose “Eat, Pray, Love” memoir was a bestseller and hit movie, is selling her 1869 Italianate Victorian in Frenchtown, N.J.

Luckily, Gilbert’s writing skills have come in handy: She has penned her own listing description and is selling the place For Sale By Owner. The 4-bedroom, 3-bath residence is on the market for $999,000, and features a wine cellar, 1,400-square-foot library and gardens galore.

Reggie Bush Rushing for a Sale

Now that he’s in Detroit playing for the Lions, NFL running back Reggie Bush is making a big push to sell his Hollywood Hills home. The list price is $6 million for the modern abode that features a penthouse master suite, roof deck and pool.

The former University of Southern California star, who brought on a monstrous scandal at his alma mater, has had his place at 1501 Vistaview Terrace redecorated in order to attract a buyer.
