Call it a closing act for Slash in Beverly Hills. The top hat-wearing rocker and his wife, Perla Hudson, have put their Tuscan-inspired villa on the market for $10.995 million.

The one-of-a-kind residence in the guard-gated Mulholland Estates lives up to its owner’s rock star status with alligator print wallpaper, cheetah print rugs and crystal chandeliers fashioned as pirate ships.

Clad in black ceilings, walls and carpet, a lower-level lounge features a nightclub, a DJ booth, a wet bar and a screening room with stadium seating. A separate recording studio has a bathroom and private patio.

The home also features a two-story entry, public areas with patterned wall treatments and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Formal living and dining rooms, a family room with a wet bar, a maid’s suite, a kitchen with two center islands, seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms are within the 11,000 square feet of living space.

Outdoors, the landscaped grounds center on a swimming pool and spa, set off by canyon and valley views. A large outdoor living room with a fireplace, a skate ramp and an organic vegetable garden complete the three-quarter of an acre setting.

Slash and Hudson, who are in the process of divorcing, paid $7.3 million for the home in 2009.

Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, rose to fame as a lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and later co-founded the supergroup Velvet Revolver. Hudson is the creator of a lifestyle channel on YouTube.


Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have bought a house in Bel-Air for $13.995 million.

The neo-classical Mediterranean, which overlooks the second green of the Bel-Air Country Club, was once owned by the late tough-guy actor Charles Bronson and his second wife, English actress and singer Jill Ireland.

The 12,000 square feet of living space is entered through a vaulted two-story foyer with a sweeping, wrought-iron staircase. High coffered ceilings grace the living room and bar room. Steps lead down to the family room. The wine room can hold about 5,000 bottles. The master suite has a sitting room, dual bathrooms and dual closets for a total of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The 1929 house sits on nearly three-quarters of an acre. The park-like grounds contain tiered gardens, mature trees, an outdoor pavilion and an enclosed patio with a saltwater pool and spa.

Loughlin, 50, gained fame on the late 1980s and early ’90s sitcom Full House and more recently was in the series 90210 and When the Heart Calls. She’ll star in the 2016 reboot series Fuller House. Giannulli, 52, founded the worldwide clothing line bearing his first name.

They sold their Beverly Hills home of five years in April for $18,246,500 in an off-market deal, public records show.

Bronson and Ireland purchased the Bel-Air residence after their 1968 wedding. The house last sold two decades ago for $3.573 million.


Actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have sold their marital home, a 1925 mansions, in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood for $15.947 million. Griffith and Banderas combined two properties to create the 1.5-acre site.

The Italian Revival-style home draws the eye up with its hand-stenciled coffered ceilings, vaulted beams and wood-paneled ceilings. Grand spaces that hearken back to the days of gracious living include the two-story banquet hall. There’s also a two-story kitchen.

A paneled library, a recording studio, a gym, an elevator, four fireplaces, 13 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms are also within the 15,110 square feet of living space on three stories. Multiple balconies bring in views of the gardens.

A stone driveway, expansive lawns, rose and vegetable garden and a courtyard swimming pool complete the grounds.

Griffith, 57, appears in the 2015 films Out of Days and Facing the Wind. She starred in Crazy in Alabama (1999), Lolita (1997) and Working Girl (1988).

Banderas, 54, is known for such films as Desperado (1995) and Once Upon a Time in Mexico” (2003). He will star in several films this year including Altamira and The 33. His recent sci-fi film Automata co-starred Griffith.

The actors bought the main property for $4.2 million in 1999, public records show, and in 2000 spent $1.3 million for an adjacent lot. Griffith filed for a divorce last year.


Actors and home renovators Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters have sold their latest project in Hollywood Hills for $4.3 million.

Built in 1926, the traditional-style house was once home to early filmmaker Preston Sturges, who helped define the screwball comedy genre in the 1930s and won an original screenplay Oscar for The Great McGinty in 1940.

Renovated and restored, the two-story home features an 1,800-square-foot great room with the original copper-topped bar and a fireplace — a nod to its Old Hollywood grandeur. A family room, an updated kitchen and a formal living room with a marble-lined fireplace are included in the 7,000 square feet of living space.

It has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, while a detached guesthouse adds another kitchen, a dining area and three bedroom en suites in 1,200 square feet.

Outdoors, a rooftop terrace takes in views of the cityscape and landscaped grounds with a fountain feature.

Renner, 44, is known for his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel cinematic universe. Among his other film credits are American Hustle (2013), The Bourne Legacy (2012) and The Hurt Locker (2008). Renner will reprise his role as William Brandt in Mission: Impossible —Rogue Nation, due out in August.

Winters, 41, runs an interior design firm that bears his name. As an actor, he has appeared in The Hurt Locker as well as the 2010 film Fair Game.
