  1. Paris Hilton's Hollywood Hideaway For Sale

    Paris Hilton is ready to move out of the Hollywood Hills. She will list her 3,000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom mansion for $4.25 million today.

    "I think it's time for her to move to a gated community," says Mauricio Umansky, Hilton's uncle and broker at Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's Great Estates. "Something that's more secure and more private."

    Those security and privacy concerns are easy to understand following the media circus that engulfed Hilton outside her current home during her legal troubles in June, when she was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless-driving case. After serving five days, she was reassigned to house arrest, but a day was later ordered back to jail. She then completed 23 days of her 45-day sentence.

    Built in the 1920s, the four-story Spanish-style home above the Sunset Strip embodies classic old-Hollywood luxury with its high wood-beam ceilings, archways and poolside cabanas. On an A-list block with views spanning across Los Angeles, the house is a few doors down from film star Cameron Diaz's mansion.

    Hilton, who paid just under $3 million for the house in December 2004, has renovated some parts without altering the original French Baroque features associated with vintage silver-screen Hollywood style.

    Keeping with the period, high, dark wood ceilings contrast with white walls and match deep-stained wood floors. Crystal chandeliers and old mirrors reflect those tones and the ample sunlight that floods the house. These are signature components of the Baroque architectural and artistic style which uses frames, windows and reflections to create a feeling of multiple perspectives by calling attention to space otherwise out of view.

    Like any good Los Angeles mansion, there is a screening room and a pool patio equipped with poolside heaters for the few days when the SoCal weather is less than perfect.
