Kevin Sorbo bought this five+ acre Bridgehampton property back in 2001 for $900,000. After building a massive, 12,500-square-foot, eight-bedroom home in 2004, the actor and his wife Sam Jenkins listed it for $10.5 million in 2012. It was taken off the market the following year, after which time it hit the rental market and gained its notorious reputation as the ultimate party pad, according to the Post. These “illegal” and ticketed bashes were often hosted for new product launches, but once Sorbo found out they went against town codes he presumably used some Herculean strength to put an end to it. Curbed Hamptons now reports that the sprawling residence is back on the market for the much-reduced price of $6.5 million.

Meg Ryan’s 4,100-square-foot apartment at 84 Mercer Street in Soho has been officially scooped up for $9.9M, LLNYC reveals. 6sqft previously reported that the actress had listed the full-floor home–which she bought from fellow actor Hank Azaria for $8 million in 2014–for $10.9 million back in February of this year. After a designer gut renovation and a spread in Architectural Digest, the three-bedroom home didn’t stay on the market long—it went into contract just three months after Ryan listed it.

A quirky studio designed by the interior designer Adam Tihany, praised as one of the greatest American interior architects by the New York Times, has hit the market for $350,000. The design has essentially remained unchanged since the apartment was featured in an early 1980s issue of Metropolitan Home, which compared the design to that of a luxury train car. According to the listing, this modest interior, packed with inventive storage, is an early example of Tihany’s world renowned hotel work (some of his commissions include the Mandarin Oriental in Vegas, the Beverly Hills Hotel, and two Four Seasons in Dubai). It’s located in the 16-unit Upper East Side co-op 223 East 78th Street, which has one more studio for sale asking $315,000.

Jon Bon Jovi hasn’t released a new album in quite some time, but one way he’s managed to stay in the spotlight is his real estate game. In 2015, he sold his Soho penthouse for $34 million, shortly thereafter picking up a sprawling duplex condo at new celeb-favorite 150 Charles Street for $13 million. Less than two months ago, he listed the West Village pad for $17.25 million, but he’s already gotten impatient, now offering the pad as part of a $29.5 million combo unit with the neighboring duplex according to Curbed.

This Hamptons beach cottage may not be super fashion-forward, but considering Stella McCartney’s tailored style and commitment to animal rights, it makes sense that the designer would opt for a more laid-back look. And if this fresh, summery aesthetic appeals to you, you’re in luck; the Observer reports that McCartney and her husband Alasdhair Willis, the creative director of Hunter boots, have listed the Napeague Bay house as a $30,000 a month rental (or $20,000 after the summer). The couple bought the property, along with the adjacent empty lot, for $1.7 million last August, opting for an Amagansett location not far from where Paul McCartney has owned a large estate since the ’90s.
