This week we have the Los Angeles home of screen legend Marlene Dietrich, a posh Manhattan pad from the owner of the Houston Rockets and the Hamptons mansion featured in the film “Grey Gardens.”

The Los Angeles home of screen legend Marlene Dietrich has hit the market in Los Angeles for $6.5 million. This gorgeous Spanish Colonial-style house was built for entertaining and dazzled Dietrich’s many famous friends over the years.

The 6,167-square-foot house sits on a half-acre lot. Each room on the main floor opens up onto the outdoor area. Dramatic arches frame lush seating areas, while beamed cathedral ceilings make the spacious interior rooms of the house seem even more grandiose.

Features include terracotta floors, stained glass windows and six fireplaces.

Houston Rockets owner and self-made billionaire Leslie Alexander has listed his impressive pad in Manhattan for $21.5 million.  

The 4,545-square-foot apartment includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a powder room. It also features panoramic views of Central Park and the city skyline.

The full floor residence contains an entry foyer decorated with a signature Baccarat chandelier.

The spacious living and dining area connects with a chef’s kitchen with Miele and Subzero appliances. The corner master bedroom suite includes a bedroom-sized dressing room and a white marble master bathroom with soaking tub and radiant heated floors.

There are three guest bedrooms, each with en-suite marble bathrooms that are designed by world renowned interior designer Tony Ingrao.

Grey Gardens, the once derelict East Hampton home of society outcasts that inspired one of the highest-regarded documentaries of all time is now selling for $17.995 million.

The seller is the journalist Sally Quinn, who bought the 6,000-square-foot, traditional shingle-style summer home in 1979.

Quinn and her husband, the late Washington Post Executive Editor Ben Bradlee, bought the property just a few years after the film about two society recluses, known as “Big Edie” and “Little Edie,” made their house famous.

The couple originally bought the house for just $220,000 from Edith “Little Edie” Beale, the first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and poured another $600,000 into making it livable again. They also added a pool and a tennis court.

The light-filled home, originally built in 1897, is filled with sunny nooks and crannies that add to the old world charm.

Today the main house has nine bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. There’s also a small cottage on the grounds where Bradlee reportedly wrote one of his books.
