The famous faces on the property ladder

Anna Nicole Smith The sumptuous Hollywood mansion of the late Anna Nicole Smith has been put onto the market for $1.75m.

The house of the model-turned-actress, who died four years ago of an accidental overdose, is still under the control of Ms Smith’s estate.

Artwork of Anna – as well as some of her furniture – are still in the mansion.

The sprawling property, which featured in The Anna Nicole Smith Show, has five-bedrooms and six bathrooms as well as stunning panoramic views over the canyons and the city of LA.

Anna had the home completely refurbished after she bought it; installing hardwood floors, new tiling, a brand new kitchen and the walls were painted white throughout.

It’s a suitably starry home with 20ft ceilings, a fireplace and balconies which make the most of its lofty position above LA.

Views of the canyon can be enjoyed from the kitchen which has wooden units and granite worktops. Naturally Anna’s master bedroom suite is very luxurious with a marble floor and balconies on both sides.

Her daughter, five-year-old Dannielynn’s room is wall-to-wall pink with beautiful |curtains, carpet and furniture – the epitome of girlyness.

It is believed the house sale has been prompted to put money back into the estate to pay for Dannielynn’s care; she currently lives with her father Larry Birkhead.

Jenny Agutter

Actress Jenny Agutter is swapping life in London for a slower pace in Cornwall.

Now, she is selling her five-bedroom Georgian townhouse in Camberwell for £1.8m

The star, who was made famous in the film of The Railway Children, will be relocating to the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall where she has a home with husband Johan Tham, a Swedish hotelier.

Of the move, Jenny said: “I raised my son Jonathan here and I have many happy memories, so I’m reluctant to sell.

“But now he’s at university and we don’t need all |this space just the two |of us.”

Jack Bruce

Former Cream bass player Jack Bruce is to sell his Italian hideaway for £105,000.

He currently lives in a six-bedroom farmhouse near Halstead in Essex with his second wife, Margrit. And he has decided |to sell the Italian property as he is unable to visit these days following a liver transplant.

Jack said: “I’m reluctant to sell because it’s an absolutely gorgeous location. Monet stayed in the village and painted the arched bridge crossing the river Nervia near the castle. But it’s two years since I was last there.”
