Beverly Hills Home
Jodie Foster listed her quaint Cape-Cod style ranch house for $9.975 million through David Kramer and Jeffrey Hyland of Hilton & Hyland. She had bought the house which was built in 1949 and remodeled in 2005 for $8.1 million from the famous plastic surgeon, Norman Leaf. It is reported that she finally sold the same for $8.3 million.
Location: The ivy-covered house is located in prime property area at Beverly Hills. It is just two blocks away from the popular Beverly Hills Hotel in California.
Accommodation: The house is almost a mini-palace when it comes to its accommodation facilities. It can provide luxurious housing for at least 14 occupants with its 7 large bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The main house has a living space of 5,484 square feet. In the premises, there is also a 2-bedroom guesthouse which can be let out to guests.
Features: The house is generous in its luxury and features. It sits pretty on nearly 1 acre of prime real estate. The glorious outdoors have a scenic and nature-surrounded swimming pool. There is also a championship quality tennis court. The main house has a brick-paved patio which leads to the natural outdoor kitchen. The large family room has a huge fireplace with intricate detailing. A wet bar, a library, a mirrored exercise room and a media room are facilities within the home itself. The house building is studded with multiple windows and includes skylights too. The bathrooms are marble-floored and will surely floor any user! Elegant fashion has been brought to the interiors via the floor-to-ceiling wood paneling.
Neighborhood: Beverly Hills is a very plush neighborhood and a galaxy of stars and celebrities stay there. The number exceeds 300 and includes names like Sylvester Stallone and Priscilla Preisley.
Foster was recently photographed getting behind the wheels of her silver white Toyota Prius. The hybrid SUV utilizes a combination of an 1800cc 2ZR-FXE petrol engine along with a 650 V electric motor to power itself. The petrol engine delivers an output of 98HP which allied with 35HP of peak power supplied by the electrical batteries makes for 135HP of maximum output. The seat covers are made of high end leather. Other user friendly facilities include adaptive cruise control, a solar-powered ventilation system, an automatic air conditioner, iPod integration, and head-up display.
The beaches of Hawaii have always held a charm over tourists, especially the celebrities. Almost every celebrity worth his/her name has vacationed at least once in Hawaii. Jodie Foster is no exception as she played around in the warm beautiful waters. She was accompanied by her sons who joined her in tubing and swimming in the ocean. They were all there for Easter Sunday as the actress was spotted wearing a tee sporting the words "Hur Ley".
Location: The most recent among the American states, Hawaii is located out in the central Pacific Ocean. It is the northernmost group of islands belonging to Polynesia.
Accommodation: There is plenty of room for people of all budgets to stay at Hawaii. A general tip would be to avoid the main island of Hawaii and stay at the other islands, Maui or O'ahu which will be cheaper. For instance, Marriott Kauai offers a rate of about $100 per day while Kahala resort will cost you $500 for the same. There are inns, hotels, cottages, resorts and villas on offer.
Main Attractions: If the face of the whole planet is searched, it would be difficult to find another place which is as scenic and beautiful as Hawaii. The paradise of nature offers a host of activities for tourists, visitors and residents alike, irrespective of their interests. For the lovers of history, there is the tour of Pearl Harbor with visits to the museum and monument. Whale and dolphin watching offer excitement while rounds of Golf on the picturesque courses will be relaxation. Renting a car on the island and going around will be a rich experience. Island hopping is not a bad option either! Traditional dining of seafood will be a memorable experience as will the shopping be! Since Hawaii is home to several volcanoes, trekking, exploring and watching them in itself would be a great pastime.
