Kelly Osbourne Is Leaving The Bird Streets

FORBES March 2015

It looks like Kelly Osbourne is leaving this home with the same speed she left E!’s Fashion Police.
The daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and The Talk star Sharon Osbourne has just listed her home in the coveted “Bird Streets” of Hollywood for $1.999 million. The turnaround time? Less than a year after Kelly purchased in December 2014, reported by Realestalker.
The three-bed, three-bath spread is a contemporary stunner in the Hollywood Hills, complete with a sparkling pool, spa, and two car garage. Floor-to-ceiling windows really play into that whole “sun-soaked” vibe, as does the lush green gardens behind the house. Located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, the 2538-square-foot home is perfect for any Los Angeleno looking to avoid the paparazzi.
And according to the listing, the home is actually one half of a pair of homes that prospective buyers can snatch up as a bundle; the second house, which is also up for sale, belongs to Kelly’s sister, Aimee Osbourne. (You may remember her as the one who never participated in the family’s reality show.)
Aimee also listed her unfinished home at $1.999 million, which is a loss from the $2.350 million price tag she paid in 2007 when she purchased it from Grey’s Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw. (Hey, it’s Hollywood. If one mansion is great, then two is even better.)
Word is that the “seller’s plans have changed and the project halted.” No word on what those plans exactly are, but judging from the photos, it looks like she decided to ditch this pad mid-construction. And, as the listing reveals, these homes are priced to move quickly.
It’s possible that the ‘ol switcheroo has something to do with Osbourne’s abrupt departure from her role as co-host on Fashion Police after the recent scandal that ensued when co-host Giuliana Rancic made comments about singer Zendaya’s dreadlocks.
In March of last year, Kelly sold her West Hollywood cottage for $1.3 million after breaking up with her then-fiancé.

Jodie Foster Lists Renovated Bird Streets Home

Forbes June 2013

It comes to no surprise that the uber-private Jodie Foster owns in a super-private home. But like most stars, she couldn’t escape the headlines, even in the Hollywood Hills home.
Foster was set to play the lead in “Double Jeopardy” when, according to People magazine, producer Leonard Goldberg got a note saying she was dropping out of the movie “for medical reasons.” Foster offered no further explanation at the time.

But word quickly spread that she was pregnant with her first son, Charlie, raising questions about paternity and conception. Fortunately, Foster had an escape from the paparazzi at the Spanish villa she had just purchased, which could be discretely accessed from a rear-gated driveway.

Although it’s privacy was undoubtedly appealing to the star for some time, Foster recently listed the home,, located at 9219 Flicker Way, Los Angeles, CA 90069, for $6.399 million.
The home, located in the distinguished Bird Streets, has 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half-baths and an attached guest suite — plenty of room for her new baby and girlfriend at the time, Cydney Bernard.

“The Silence of the Lambs” star reportedly updated part of the home soon after she bought it in 1997, while maintaining its 1930s Spanish style. Overhead beams, brick patios and a backyard pool are a few highlights, as well as a large media screening/kids’ play room.

With her second son, Christopher “Kit” Foster, entering the teenage years, Foster isn’t an empty nester quite yet. Last year she bought a new Beverly Hills home for $11.75 million, which will likely become her new primary residence.
