Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Part Ways with Former Love Nest


Listed by Thomas Atamian, Dilbeck Real Estate

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden just unloaded their gorgeous abode for $1,837,500.

The actress and the “Good Charlotte” rock star scooped up the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home back in 2004 for $1.8 million. According to the listing, the gated two-level Spanish Colonial estate is located within the prestigious area of Northwest Glendale. The home has been restored to its original 1930s splendor, with an oversized formal living room, rich walnut hardwood floors, thick crown molding, and a fireplace outlined in custom Spanish tiles.

The couple must have especially enjoyed their time in the kitchen as it is fully equipped with an enormous island, granite countertops, custom cabinetry and high-end stainless steel appliances. Exposed wood beams and vaulted ceilings add to the dramatic effect. Three beautiful French doors lead from the kitchen to a secluded backyard retreat, complete with plenty of shade from the lush garden.

While Richie and Madden bid farewell to this fabulous property, they maintain ownership of their Laurel Canyon crib, which the couple snatched up in 2009 for $1.912 million. The gated compound has soaring ceilings, a full guest house and a pool. With four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and 5,380 square feet, their current home provides a bit more space than the one they just unloaded!
