carolwood estate

The Carolwood Estate, which sits on the property once owned by Walt Disney, has been listed for $90 million.

The original home on the property, which was  sold to investor Gabriel Brener, had to be torn down due to asbestos concerns. The current structure, which measures 35,000 square feet, was finished in 2001.

The 8 bedroom, 17 bathroom home opens with a two-story oval foyer with plaster-veneered walls, crown molding, and statuary and verde jade marble flooring, according to the listing. A grand staircase off to the side leads to rows of suites used as children's rooms.

The three-level mansion features a wine cellar, a movie room, three bars, a library, a gym, eight bedrooms, 17 bathrooms and two safe rooms. Staff quarters are accessible from a service entrance at the garage. There is a swimming pool with a pool house, a tennis court and a putting green.

In the 1950s, Disney had a barn on the property, which held his projects, including a miniature steam train which lead to his plans of Disneyland. After the sale of the estate, the barn was dismantled and reassembled in Griffith Park, where it is now a museum.

lady gaga shopping for pa property

Just weeks after Lady Gaga told Ellen DeGeneres that she was far too busy traveling to purchase a real home, the songstress has been seen checking out a $1.7 million mansion in central Pennsylvania.

According to CBS 21 News, Gaga has been spotted viewing an Oak Hill Road home in the exclusive gated community of Bent Creek in Lancaster County.  The estate in question boasts 6,000 square feet and includes a three car garage.

Why would she be drawn to an area located 70 miles from Philadelphia?  It turns out her boyfriend Taylor Kinney lives in the area and she wants to have a place near The Vampire Diaries actor.

Lady G amassed $90 million between May 2010 and May 2011 according to Forbes.  She admits that she has a hard time spending her money and had to get falling-down drunk earlier this year before signing her income tax forms and presumably a hefty check to Uncle Sam.

Check out a video of the property below:
