Singer Katy Perry and her comedian-actor husband, Russell Brand, have listed their four-bedroom home
in the hip Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles for $3.395 million. The celebrity couple purchased the 1922 Mediterranean in 2009 for $3.25 million.
So is this just a case of reading their own press to the exclusion of news on the real estate page? Apparently Perry and Brand did some renovations (including installing a vintage pink refrigerator in the remodeled kitchen) that justify - at least in their own minds - asking more than they paid, even though the housing market has continued its drive south since their time of purchase.
One big thing in their favor: Los Feliz is hot, hot, hot. Other celebs who live there include "Black Swan's" Natalie Portman and Katie Heigl, who stars in "Grey's Anatomy."
The 4,706-square-foot home features a Roman-style pool, lots of marble, tall arched windows, hardwood floors and oodles of French doors, fireplaces and rolling lawns. It's an impressive home, with lots of high-end detail.
Perry and Brand added more mature trees and improved the landscaping to increase their privacy. It is not known whether the 25-foot tall tee-pee that Brand bought for his wife and installed in the yard is included in the sale. And what was once a three-car garage is a wardrobe styling room.
Perry and Brand bought a pied-a-terre in New York last year and, what with world tours (hers) and time spent on movie sets (his), they figured it was just time to sell their Los Angeles compound. Or at least try to.
Perry's albums include "One of the Boys" (2008) and "Teenage Dream" (2010). Brand was featured in the recently released remake of "Arthur." He also starred in "Get Him to the Greek" (2010) and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008).
