Helen Mirren is selling her luxurious $18.5 million eight-bedroom Hollywood mansion boasting a huge swimming pool, wood-paneled library and stunning views of Los Angeles after 30 years of living there

Helen Mirren is selling her luxurious $18.5 million eight-bedroom Hollywood mansion after

Located within six-and-a-half acres of sophisticated landscaping and mature trees and situated at the top of a winding drive, the 10,200 sq ft estate (top left) includes a guest house and a total of eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Built in 1911, the house has beautiful finishes from the era, including large rooms (top right, a dining room and bottom left, a bedroom), French doors opening onto the Hollywood hills, a paneled library (bottom right), hardwood floors and large fireboxes in the fireplaces. A particularly special room is the cozy bar, complete with stylish bar stools and a comfortable sofa and chairs for an intimate evening of lavish entertaining. It's easy to see why Oscar-winning British actress Mirren and her director husband (inset) have stayed put in the sprawling Hollywood home for so long, but they are now offering it for sale or for rent at $45,000 a month.

It saves on running if you just chugged a case of beer.

Steve McQueen’s $12 Million Malibu Beach House is Up For Sale

steve-mcqueens-malibu-beachhouse-2.jpg

If you’re going to talk “cool,” even today, decades after his untimely death, you have to bring Steve McQueen into the discussion. Lately, McQueen has been popping up more and more as items that once belonged to the actor have been going on sale or have been inspiring new products. In addition to his own sense of style, McQueen also had an impressive real estate portfolio, and one item from that list that is now up for sale is McQueen’s Malibu Beachhouse.

(...I know any car or motorcycle he ever owned will usually go for ten times their normal value when on auction, but I wonder if this house's value might also be heighten a bit too because of its association with him?)

Who wants to pay that much and have neighbors a few feet away from you? No thanks!

True, but this is how it is along the Malibu colony and where the rich can just walk out their back doors and onto the sands of the beach, ya know.

(...and is pretty much also this way along any beach city in L.A. County)

It's pretty much that way in all of So Cal (especially the closer you are to the water) unless you are uber-rich and live in the exclusive estate neighborhoods (like Mirren's estate above).

This is one of my favourites.  Oprah's cozy little cottage in Washington State that she bought in 2018 for $8M.  She only just sold the 43 acre estate for $14M.  

You can skip through the video timeline to get the idea.

If I pictured cozy and little, this is not what comes to my mind...

 Didn't have to check: I figured it was in Encino above the Boulevard!

There are eight bedrooms. Only a savage shares a bathroom with a person with whom they are not intimate.

A kitchen properly needs a half-bath attached so that the cook does not need to traipse through the house while covered with flour, blood or etc..

A house needs a half-bath on each floor so that guests do not need to barge through bedrooms.

It may be that that house should have more. It has been many years since I have read the figures but it sticks in my mind that houses should be designed so that facilities are never more than twenty steps away.

the obama celebrity home has 11 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms and plenty of white marble countertops.

man would I like a chunk of that.

Well, if you're that into marble, you might prefer Trump's tastefully restrained $100 million "celebrity home":

There's enough room for one magazine and me. And sometimes if I forget the toilet paper, believe me, that magazine has come in pretty handy.
