HOLLYWOOD (Variety) — Recently married “Glee” star Darren Criss, legally hitched to longtime girlfriend Mia Sweir in mid-February, has celebrated his upwardly mobile career with the slightly more than $3 million purchase of a family-sized home in a celeb-packed neighborhood in the leafy, low-key foothills above Hollywood.

All but invisible behind an huge hedge and fortified behind imposing gates, the extensively renovated, mansard-roofed residence doesn’t adhere to any discernible architectural vernacular — let’s call it a transitional contemporary — and measures in at almost 4,700 square feet with three ample bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

BEVERLY HILLS (Seattle Times) — The 93-year-old hideaway tucked into the Beverly Hills area has enjoyed a full life. Past residents include Katharine Hepburn and Boris Karloff, who transformed the one-acre estate into a verdant retreat full of terraced gardens, rolling lawns, eucalyptus hedges, orchards and a rose garden.

Now, Goldwyn and Klein are readying the storied estate for a new chapter, putting it up for sale after five years of ownership for $8.995 million.

Built in 1927, the Spanish-style hacienda counts Katharine Hepburn and Borlis Karloff as former residents. The landscaped grounds center on a 5,000-square-foot hacienda brimming with Spanish style.
