Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Purchases Maui Property

Reported by the Wall Street Journal, Aerosmith lead singer and American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, bought an oceanfront home on the exclusive South Maui coast. Makena is also said to have other notable owners from the entertainment world such as Jennifer Aniston, and Clint Eastwood and Oprah, and from the financial luminaries including Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel.

Mr. Tyler's new abode is 2 bedroom / 3.5 bathroom Makena home on 1/4 acre, which was originally offered at $6.495M but sold for $4.8M (one of the best values in Makena real estate). Featuring over 3,000 square feet of interior space boasting a floor-to-ceiling aquarium, the interior is seemlessly paired with 1,400 square feet of covered outdoor living space, showcasing a very distinctive 'Old Hawaii' feel to it reminiscent of Hawaii's rich history. A salt-water pool overlooking the ocean provides the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining and relaxation. It also enjoys a very unique location on a promontory, surrounding the property on 3 sides by the ocean.

For the fortunate few qualified buyers who are interested in enjoying a life of luxury in the ultimate island setting, the Makena and Wailea real estate will offer among the best options in the world.

Jennifer Aniston Buys an Ultramodern L.A. Home

Looks like it's time to update the Celebrity Real Estate Heat Map: A-lister of A-listers Jennifer Aniston has reportedly scooped up new mansion for herself in Bel-Air, Calif.

The pristine 8,500-square-foot four-bedroom was designed in 1965 by noted Los Angeles modernist architect A. Quincy Jones; after first hitting the market for $29 million in 2008, the house was reduced to some $24 million, at which point Aniston swooped in and scored it for even less: $21 million.

And as if this lucky lady didn't already have enough of them, here are yet some more perks: more than three acres of land, views of the city and ocean, a pool, a guesthouse, a wine cellar, and—last but certainly not least—a vineyard. Let's not forget to look inside: those distinctly midcentury-feeling interiors boasts gleaming wood floors, full-wall expanses of glass, and some pretty stunningfireplace detail.

Aniston's had quite an impressive year in terms of real estate. The actress listed and then sold her spectacular Ohana estate, a Beverly Hills beaut that was once featured on the cover of Architectural Digest. She swiftly found another Beverly Hills estate in which to shack up with new beau Justin Theroux.
