Glee Star Lea Michelle’s Peaceful Brentwood Bungalow Oasis

Tucked away in the rustic-luxe area of Mandeville Canyon, the 3,164-square-foot home offers ample privacy without sacrificing a convenient commute to Los Angeles.

Bright, airy, and spacious, the two-story living room is steeped in historic charm, featuring the home's original wooden mantel, beamed ceilings, and open brick staircase.

Located in a seaside town 45 minutes south of Dublin, the five-bedroom residence features cozy rooms that spill out onto a lushly landscaped lawn. The floors, which are run throughout the rest of the home, were salvaged and refinished on-site.

The five-bedroom estate was originally designed in 1934 by iconic architect Wallace Neff, who helped define the Southern Californian home with his Spanish and Mediterranean touches.

Masterfully styled by acclaimed interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, this one-bedroom apartment is located in a classic 19th-century brownstone and blends historic architecture with chic, contemporary design.

The open floor plan features a whitewashed interior, beamed wood ceilings, splashes of hardwood, and a freestanding vintage fire drum fireplace sourced by Wilson’s wife Coco.

The three-bedroom clapboard main house is placed in an idyllic setting on the property. The large, Colonial-style home utilizes a center hall plan common in many homes of its era.

Beautifully illuminated with natural light, the living room is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, which is surrounded with ceramic tiles handmade by artist Kim Dickey.

This four-bedroom, three-bath property that the Duchess of Sussex once called home features 2,262 square feet of sun-filled interior space.

The pool and the pool deck were redone in the renovation. Updates introduced a semicircular bench with a railing at the perimeter, a hot tub, a wood-clad sauna, and a cold plunge pool.

A narrow, window-lit hallway winds its way from the front door to the home’s open living space. The entryway features custom floor lighting and hidden storage along the left-hand wall.

The lush tropical backyard features multiple cozy entertaining spaces.

The open living room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. The corner location also looks out onto the wrap-around terrace and views of the Jersey City and downtown Manhattan skylines.

The expansive backyard features a raised swimming pool and large lawn. A covered patio off of the living room and another one around the pool provide space for relaxing or entertaining.

Situated in the medieval town of Cetona, Italy, Villa La Vagnola was built in 1750 and sits on an expansive 27-acre estate. For 33 years, it has served as a retreat for legendary fashion designer Valentino Garavani and his lifetime partner Giancarlo Giammetti.

The famous Laurel Canyon abode was once owned by the late actor Heath Ledger and Ellen DeGeneres.

The home was built in 2010 by Santa Barbara–based architect Don Nulty and Feng shui master David Cho. A striking example of classic, East Coast–inspired American architecture, the residence boasts exquisite custom detailing and chic, modern comforts.

Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows invite natural light into the penthouse throughout the day and frame dramatic views as the sun goes down.

This distinctive residence in Pasadena, California, has had its share of stardom since being built by Buff, Straub, & Hensman in 1957. Once owned by the musician Beck and carefully updated by its current owners, the expansive residence is a stunning example of post-and-beam architecture. 

The one-of-a-kind, 20,000-square-foot property features breathtaking views of the scenic surroundings—and if these walls could talk, they would tell many glamorous tales of the golden age of Hollywood.
