Actor Matthew Perry has decided to say adios to his Los Angeles home, putting it on the market for $13.5 million Friday.⠀

Perry, 47, best known for his role as Chandler Bing in NBC’s long-running sitcom “Friends,” bought the three-bedroom, five-bathroom residence in 2011 through a trust for $8.65 million, according to property records.⠀

Located in Bird Streets, a popular showbiz enclave in Hollywood Hills, this custom home features walls of glass wrapping around the 10,628-square-foot living space, looking out onto downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean in the distance, according to the listing with Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen of The Partners Trust.⠀

There is a “premiere-worthy” screening room on the lower level, befitting the needs of an actor.⠀

Outdoor entertainment space includes an infinity pool with a cascading wall of water, covered sitting areas and fire pits.

A century-old sprawling country estate in Hillsborough, California, that had been lingering on the market since 2013 and was once listed for $100 million, has found a buyer six weeks after taking a huge price cut.⠀

The 47-acre European-style property, located halfway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, entered into contract last week, with an asking price of $29.85 million, according to listing records.⠀

The sale is still pending, so the final sales price and buyers haven’t been made public yet.⠀

The estate first came onto the market for $100 million in 2013. The asking price was later dropped to $34.9 million in October 2016. The last listing this May represented a 70% discount from the original ask.⠀

The property is one of the largest on the San Francisco Peninsula, and includes hiking trails, a reservoir and city views, Mary Gullixson—who is handling the listing with her son, Brent Gullixson—told Mansion Global in a previous interview.⠀

Known as Guignécourt, the mega-manse was built in 1912 by a member of French nobility, Count Christian de Guigné, who landed in California and married Mary Katherine Parrott, whose father, John Parrott, made a fortune in the Gold Rush era.⠀

De Guigné hired Bliss & Faville, architects behind the historic upscale St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, to build the 16,660-square-foot main house, which has 10 bedrooms, nine-and-a-half bathrooms.

There are not many properties like this one that still exists in California, said Erik Gregersen, of the Santa Barbara Land Trust, in the promotional video for this sprawling ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley, surrounded by an unusually large parcel of approximately 4,700 acres of land.⠀

If you were to ride the fence line along the property on a horse, it would take from six in the morning to six at night, said owner Fred Steck, formerly of Goldman Sachs, who bought the land in 1999, building a Mexican colonial mansion, and magnificent equestrian facilities, on it in an effort to fulfill his childhood dream of being a cowboy.⠀

The house, designed by renowned ranch architect David L. Leavengood, took four years to construct at great expense. It is not easy to build something in such a remote area, said agent Georgina Jacobson, a sales associate affiliated with the Newport Beach office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.⠀

The floors and beams use reclaimed wood, making the home, though large, “warm and inviting so it doesn’t feel cavernous,” Ms. Jacobson said. There are large outdoor entertaining areas with an outdoor fireplace in hand-cut Oklahoma stone to entertain guests and throw parties, while the gourmet kitchen can serve many people, with restaurant-grade appliances. This includes a Lacanche French range cooker, Miele dishwashers, copper sinks, SubZero fridge and freezer, a butler’s pantry and pizza oven. #ListingOfTheDay

Overlooking the Hudson River and the new Tappan Zee Bridge, River Palace, a.k.a. Palazzo Mare, takes drama to a new level. “The house offers a living experience,” said Laura Lavergne of @douglaselliman. “Every room, every inch has a history, a story to tell.”⠀

This home’s multiple terraces and stone walls on the waterfront façade are all inspired by a Venetian-style palazzo. A sunroom with a custom-designed wet bar opens out onto the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. Between the pool, the expansive views of the Hudson, and the home’s private beach, everything is built around being near the water. "Seeing the house from the water,“ accessible from the private dock, "is really something incredible,” Ms. Lavergne said.⠀

The foyer leads to a soaring great room, with 27-foot ceilings and panoramic views of the water. Every room of this unusual, waterfront home has a theme. Some parts of the living room, for example, use glass flooring, rather than wood, and there is even an aquarium in the floor. The current owner worked with a lighting architect to maximize the sense of play that characterizes the home.⠀

Filled with art and high-end furniture—with many pieces from the 1920s and 30s—, “the house is like a museum,,” said Ms. Lavergne. The furniture, she estimated, is worth around $200,000 and some may be available for sale. One closet, keeping with the home’s themed-room schema, is completely done in a 1920s style down to the chandelier, jewelry case, and floor-to-ceiling cabinets, which all allow the owner a unique way to show off their clothes as a collection of their own. #ListingOfTheDay

Fundo Reñihué, the longtime home of the late conservationist and clothing entrepreneur Doug Tompkins, is now on the market for $10.5 million. Reñihué farm is a sprawling piece of property in the rugged Patagonia region of Chile that measures 1,750 acres.⠀

Tompkins, the founder of the North Face and Esprit clothing brands, died at the age of 72 in 2015 after a kayaking accident on General Carrera Lake in Patagonia. He and his wife, Kris, the longtime CEO of the clothing company Patagonia, bought this property in 1991 and have spent decades improving and restoring it.⠀

“This property is ideal for a buyer looking for peace, relaxation, nature and comfort,” said Yolanda Tejeda, the International Business Manager of @chilesir, which is handling the sale.⠀

Sparsely populated Patagonia, in Chile’s far southern reaches, is an eco-tourist’s dream. Fly-fishing, sea kayaking, riding, biking, and bird watching are just a few of the recreational opportunities available at Reñihué farm.⠀

Two organic gardens and three woodstove-heated greenhouses provide fresh vegetables for farm residents and guests. Production also includes honey and organic berries. ⠀

Hundreds of sheep and cattle graze on restored pastures and produce wool and meat for market. Much of the farm’s acreage features Valdivian rainforest, providing a safe haven for a wide variety of bird and animal species.⠀

There are numerous conservation easements in the area, Ms. Tejeda said, “the most important being Pumalin Park—by far the most important and diverse conservation effort in Latin America.” #ListingOfTheDay

When rock musician and producer Dave Stewart lived in this four-bedroom flat in Covent Garden in the late 1990s and early 2000s, it was at the epicenter of the London creative scene.⠀

Stewart is best known as the co-founder of the Eurythmics with Annie Lenox, whose hits included the iconic “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”⠀

In Stewart’s day, the current reception room of the duplex penthouse was a rollicking studio, with many songs written and recorded by famous guests like Gwen Stefani, Sinead O’Connor and Joe Strummer of The Clash, according to @tavistockbow, the real estate brokerage handling the sale.⠀

This is the first time in more than a decade that the flat has been on the market. The apartment, which is on the fourth and fifth floors, has three very private terraces with terrific views of the West End.⠀

“It’s the terraces that really make it so unique,” said Hannah Read of Tavistock Bow.⠀

“You’ve got a huge amount of terrace space, which is really rare in this area,” she said. “The current owners have decked them out with lots of different areas–architectural grasses, planters and decks. ⠀

The Fielding Court apartment overlooks the iconic Seven Dials, a junction that joins seven roads in Covent Garden, and is surrounded by restaurants, theaters, shops and independent boutiques.⠀

“You’ve got amazing views down into the Seven Dials roundabout,” Ms. Read said. “You’re up high looking down on everything, on the hustle and bustle down there.” #ListingOfTheDay

Overlooking Lake Washington, this classic waterfront estate in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood hearkens back to the best of the Roaring Twenties in a city known for its laid-back modernity. “This is one of the trophy homes in all of Laurelhurst,” said listing agent Terry Allen of Coldwell Banker Bain of the almost acre wide property.⠀

Designed by noted Seattle architect Arthur Loveless in the late 1920s, the classic Tudor home’s exterior is a tasteful combination of striking gables, multi-toned shingles and deep red brick accentuated by perfectly manicured foliage and a lush green lawn.⠀

The home’s stone archway graciously greets visitors into a tasteful interior: luxurious tile and vibrant wood below, subtle colors and wood-paneling on the sides, exposed wood beams and remarkable chandeliers above. As one might expect of such a luxurious estate, built in the early 20th century for a prominent Seattle banking family, the home features an oversized living and dining room ideal for entertaining, in addition to a ballroom with an 18-foot ceiling on the lower level.⠀

Keeping the home’s original period in mind, the present owners have made recent seamless additions that blend with the estate’s historical style. #ListingOfTheDay

If walls could talk, this penthouse apartment on Italy’s Lake Como would tell a great music story. The duplex apartment is owned by Muse frontman Matt Bellamy and it is where he composed the Grammy award-winning album “Resistance.”⠀

Housed in an 1820s villa in Moltrasio, a sought-after village on the west coast of the lake, the British rock star has owned the property for the past 10 years. The album, which won a Grammy for Best Rock Album in 2011, was recorded in the property’s recording studio, according to listing agent Diego Antinolo of @sothebysrealtyitaly.⠀

But Mr. Bellamy is not the only famous person to have written music here. It is also where the Italian opera composer Vincenzo Bellini Vincenzo wrote “La Straniera,” and found inspiration for one of his most famous works, “La Sonnambula.” He lived in the property in the 1830s, according to Mr. Antinolo.⠀

On a hill that runs down to the glittering emerald waters of Lake Como, with views of the majestic hills beyond, it isn’t hard to see why the property has inspired such creativity. ⠀

Along with the spectacular views, the property has been refurbished from top to bottom by Mr. Bellamy, making it the ideal place to find creative inspiration as well as relax and recharge.⠀

“It’s a very creative and inspiring place,” Mr. Antinolo said. “The views of the lake are wonderful.” #ListingOfTheDay

Nantucket is known for its scenic shore, classic lighthouses and old-world atmosphere, highlighted by the largest concentration of pre-Civil War homes in the United States, spread throughout the intimate island getaway. Yet, the charming simplicity evoked by the island’s relaxed pace doesn’t mean it is lacking in modern amenities–– far from it, in fact, as Acklandia, the compound on Pocomo Road demonstrates.⠀

“Acklandia is the ultimate waterfront compound with dramatic 300-degree views of Nantucket Harbor, iconic Great Point Lighthouse and Nantucket Town on the horizon,” said co-listing agent Bernadette Meyer of @maurypeoplesothebys.⠀

Ideal for entertaining and large family gatherings, Ms. Meyer added that the massive compound also includes “an entertainment pavilion with a commercial kitchen, 3,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a pool, tennis court, workout room, car storage, guest quarters, staff quarters, and private beach stairs.”⠀

Visually, the home is a treat too. Designed in a classic revival shingle style, the property features a cascade of tonally muted shingles on the exterior and summery colors alongside exposed wood beams throughout the wide-open interiors. Add to all this the large windows and massive deck opening up to the surrounding, painterly vista, and you have the perfect summer getaway. #ListingOfTheDay

During the first two weeks of sales in May, four of the seven luxury condos in the new boutique development known as 152 Elizabeth Street, went into contract. The building— Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s first in New York and outside Asia— won’t be finished until the fall, said Debra LaChance of @compass.⠀

"They are just buying off the model," Ms. LaChance said. "This is such an unusual development, the likes of which have never been seen in New York City."⠀

And this particular model unit, 2E, is the only one that’s finished and available for showings. Working with Mr. Ando, designer and architect Michael Gabellini designed and curated this home as well as the interiors for the entire building.⠀

The apartments "are replete with craftsmanship that you typically only see in private homes," Ms. LaChance said.⠀

"People are buying them as a collector’s item, as a piece of art. We’re selling seven individual pieces of art." #ListingOfTheDay

This classic Palladian Georgian mansion, set on the banks of River Suir, with its own fishing rights and its own lake, is steeped in history both centuries old and modern.⠀

The house was built by Colonel John Bagwell MP in about 1785. the Bagwells were a wealthy and influential family in South Tipperary from the 18th to 20th centuries, and John Bagwell a senator in the new Irish Free State. In 1923, during the Irish Civil War, the house suffered an arson attack by anti-Treaty IRA forces and the damage can still be seen today in scorch marks on the stable doors. ⠀

The Bagwell family rebuilt the central block of the house in 1925, though many original Georgian rooms and features were undamaged and remain unchanged. The house was kept in the Bagwell family until the 1970s when the current owner bought it. He is selling it to downsize.⠀

The mansion, known as Marlfield House, is set on 31 acres and extends to 22,640 square feet, including five reception rooms and 14 bedrooms. The central block is set over four floors, the first and second have been divided into luxury apartments, but the ground floor and basement retain their original form. The apartments are created with stud partitions and careful thought has been given to maintaining the integrity of ceiling cornices, said David Ashmore, agent for @irelandsothebysrealty. Therefore, this could easily be reversed, subject to planning permission, and the house restored to its Georgian form, with the addition perhaps of some extra bathrooms. #ListingOfTheDay
