Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Put Home on the Market in LA
By Melissa Allison
The upheaval in Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's life -- which includes rumors they're splitting up, the filming of her new reality show, "Candidly Nicole," and the purchase of a new home in Beverly Hills, according to Variety -- now includes a house on the market.
Richie and Madden, who paid $1.912 million for the place in 2009, are asking $3.495 million for the home in the Laurel Canyon enclave of Los Angeles.
Built in 1914, the home looks more like a cross between midcentury modern and California bohemian. Soaring ceilings plus lots of windows and skylights bring sunshine into the five-bedroom, five-bath home, which also features courtyard-style open spaces and dark, exposed beams. An attached guesthouse offers access to a backyard with eating and play areas alongside a lagoon-style pool, spa and waterfall.
The listing belongs to Thomas Atamian of Dilbeck Real Estate, who sold the home of Madden's brother, rocker Benji Madden, last year.
