November has been a busy month for celebrity real estate in Los Angeles. Here you can take a closer look at a select and exclusive group of celebrity real estate deals including the purchases, sales, and listings of Johnny Depp, Eva Longoria, Kathy Griffin, Halle Berry, and many more.

James Franco sells cute Spanish-style duplex in Silver Lake for $1.35M
Actor, director, and screenwriter James Franco has found a buyer for his Silver Lake duplex after just a couple of months on the market, the Los Angeles Times reports. The property sold for $1.35 million—$401,000 over its $949,000 list price, and nearly double what he paid for the dwelling. The Spanish-style property dates back to 1923, when it was rumored to have been commissioned as a vacation home by early Hollywood filmmaker D.W. Griffith (best known for his “disgustingly racist yet titanically original” Birth of a Nation).

Comedian and onetime television host Kathy Griffin has finally found a buyer for the extravagant Hollywood Hills mansion she listed a little over a year ago. Variety reports that Griffin is selling the home for just under $4.5 million—well below the $5.495 million price tag attached to the house when it first appeared on the market.

Stockard Channing Re-Lists Above L.A.’s Laurel Canyon

With two Emmys, plus a dozen more nominations, and a Tony, plus half of a dozen more nominations, not to mention an Oscar nomination in 1993 for the film “Six Degrees of Separation,” a role she originated on Broadway to great acclaim, Channing has owned the property since the fall of 2003 when she picked it up for $1.075 million.

Property Brother Drew Scott buys in Windsor Square
The TV star and his fiancé, Linda Phan, paid $2.3 million earlier this year for a very on-brand residence (it’s a homey fixer upper built in 1921). Now, listing agent Bruce Walker of Rodeo Realty says that the couple has already begun renovating the property—with the work likely to be detailed in future Property Brothers episodes. Just under 3,500 square feet in size, the home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, plus an additional 967-square-foot space on the third floor. Interior features include hardwood floors, crown moldings, a dining room, breakfast room, and butler’s pantry, and an original Batchelder tile fireplace.

Elvis Presley’s Palm Springs honeymoon house is looking for a buyer
One of the most iconic modern residences in Palm Springs is back on the market. Dubbed the “House of Tomorrow” by Look Magazine in 1962, the house is most famous as the spot where Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned five years later, following a quick and secretive Las Vegas wedding. (Elvis purportedly carried Priscilla over the threshold singing the “Hawaiian Wedding Song” from Blue Hawaii). Designed by prolific architect William Krisel, the house was built for Robert Alexander, of the Alexander Construction Company. The legendary firm built more than 2,000 modern-style Southern California residences during the 1950s and ’60s, but it folded in 1965 after founders Robert and George Alexander died in a plane crash.

‘House of Cards’ Actress Molly Parker’s Echo Park Bungalow on the Market
Commune-raised Canadian actress Molly Parker, nominated for a 2016 Emmy for her role as ruthlessly ambitious Congresswoman Jackie Sharp on “House of Cards,” has listed her cute-as-a-button 1920s Spanish-style bungalow perched above the street in L.A.’s hipster-chic and increasingly expensive Echo Park area for a whisper less than $900,000. The former “Deadwood” actress, set to appear in “Lost in Space,” a reprise of the 1960s TV series of the same name, purchased the approximately 1,300-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom bungalow in 2004 for just a smidgen less than $580,000.
