Joining this spring's bumper crop of L.A.-area mega estates for sale is Liongate, entering the fray priced at $65 million. Other Westside contenders include the $135-million Beverly House, Jamie McCourt's $55-million home and Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's $50-million moated residence. Although two lion statues still stand at one of the gates, the reworked 1938 mansion in Bel-Air has dropped the plural from its former Lionsgate name. Singer Kenny Rogers, who sold the estate in 1983 for $5.8 million, is credited with placing the lions outside the gate.

Cuba Gooding Jr. has sold his house in Pacific Palisades for $9,828,300. Yes, yes, someone showed him the money, to borrow his line from “Jerry Maguire.” The nearly one acre of grounds is set up for family fun. A sunken trampoline -- think user safety -- sits in the lawn, there's a swimming pool and the sports court can double as a lighted roller hockey rink or a basketball court. The contemporary English-style two-story house features French doors, five fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a media room, seven bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar and upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms - another great idea.

Elvis slept here. A Midcentury Modern home in Palm Springs that was once leased to the "King of Rock 'n' Roll" Elvis Presley is up for sale at $9.5 million. Billed as his “honeymoon retreat,” the 1960 house is also notable for its unusual shape. The residence  consists of four circle-shaped living spaces on three levels. Curved walls of stone, a round kitchen island and a circular fireplace in the center of the living room echo the structural shape. Expanses of glass take in views of the Santa Rosa Mountains and Coachella Valley.

The first time Jack Latner's Hollywood Hills house was remodeled years ago, the big design move was an addition built literally around a spectacular 70-year-old sycamore tree: The trunk rose up from the floor and through the ceiling. “It was the best space in the house,” said Latner, 31, adding that guests naturally gravitated to the novel space. “But it was also my bedroom. I thought, 'Let's turn this room into the main feature of the house. This is where we are going to be spending most of our time.'” So for another remodel, Latner turned to Aaron Neubert , the Silver Lake architect who designed the first addition.

To attend the preview party for the $28.2-million Hollywood Hills compound flipped by actor-turned-developer Brad Blumenthal and his business partner Leo Hauser this summer you needed that valuable Tinseltown commodity: an invitation. Think movie previews and red-carpet events. Nothing draws interest quite like exclusivity in this town. Here's my insider experience: Turning onto a side street off Sunset Strip I left my car with the valet service and was greeted by about a half-dozen young men in suits with matching iPads bearing the name “The Agency.” One of these real estate agents, whose company is marketing the estate for sale, checked me off the guest list,  and I moved to the driveway where a trio of Lamborghinis from a local dealer caught the eyes of passersby.
