Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

SELLER: Renée Zellweger LOCATION: Pomfret, CT PRICE: $1,500,000 SIZE: 3,400 square feet (approximately, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms YOUR MAMAS NOTES: While snacking on some dry toast backed up with a stiff, mid-day gin & tonic pick-me-up Your Mama received an unexpected press release that announces Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger has listed her rural retreat in puny and purdy Pomfret, CT on the market with an asking price of $1,500,000. Miz Zellweger has been a bright light in Tinseltown for quite some time and is best known perhaps for her roles in Cold Mountain, Jerry Maguire, Chicago, Nurse Betty and the Bridget Jones’s Diary franchise and for her long list of high-profile man-friends and who include Jim Carrey, George Clooney, Jack White, Kenny Chesney–to whom she was married for about 8 minutes–Luke Perry, John Krasinski, André Balazs, Dan Abrams and, for about 2 years until their March 2011 bust up, Bradley Cooper who People magazine named as “The Sexiest Man Alive” for 2011. Anyhoo, property records show the sinewy and squinty-eyed movie star procured her pastoral Pomfret property in November 2004 for $1,320,000. The press release we received reveals Miz Zellweger acquired the 39 acre farmlette, located in the northeastern corner of Connecticut about 3.5 hours by car from Midtown Manhattan, as a “vacation retreat.” She renovated, updated and upgraded the property’s primary structures, which include a vintage main house, separate guest house, and fully detached recreation barn while retaining respect and admiration for the age and integrity of the antique structures. The actress also spent handsomely on extensive landscaping improvement that include various gardens, terraces and dry-stone walls that look as if they pre-date the late-18th century spread. The main house, a quirky and humble but dignified Federal-style Colonial built around 1770, measures around 3,400 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms that include a commodious (if casual) master suite with vaulted ceiling with heavy, exposed rough-hewn beams, private en suite facility on a dressing area with, as per press release, “an extensive suite of closets.” Visibly aged and pleasantly worn wide plank wood floors–either original or reclaimed–spread throughout the main lounging and entertaining areas that spoke off around the center stair hall and include a cozy formal living room with fireplace and an army of 9-over-9 pane sash windows, a formal dining room with fireplace and antique crystal chandelier, and a ebony-paneled library also with fireplace plus floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. A fourth fireplace–this one with brick fireplace original built-in bread oven–warms the family room/media room and the well-equipped (and surprisingly over-sized) and natural light bright kitchen has custom white-painted cabinetry, butcher-block counter tops, high-grade commercial-style appliances, a massive center island lorded over by a heavy-duty pot rack laden with a cacophony of pots and pans that could easy ensnare a bouffant hair do and/or mentally incapacitate an elderly person if it were to fall unexpectedly from the white-painted wood-paneled ceiling. A sunny sun porch with pitched ceiling and original (or antique reclaimed) wide-plank wood floors looks out past the mature tree branches, through a mossy split-rail fence, down a gentle planted slope to a tree- and lawn-ringed amorphous swimming pool with wide flagstone coping. A separate guest house has a living room, bedroom, kitchenette and full bath while an antique barn located across the large gravel motor court from the main house has been re-purposed into an airy entertainment pavilion with soaring exposed wood vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors, a old-timey (but probably new-fanged) wood stove and hefty, rough-hewn posts that anchor the massive antique timbers that cross the interior of the capacious space. The high-profile but low-key Miz Zellweger has owned a number of other prominent properties that include a secluded ranch-style residence in the Hollywood Hills she bought in March 2000 for $1,875,000 from The Wallflowers front man Jakob Dylan and sold a few years later when she snatched up a 6,410 square foot mansion in a plum section of Los Angeles’ hoity toity Bel Air ‘hood that she owned only briefly and sold in July 2003 for $7,000,000 to Will & Grace alum Debra Messing. Most recently she sold a pair of rambling apartments–or a trio of contiguous units, depending on how one counts, that comprise about 5,000 square feet in a grand Beaux Arts townhouse building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for a combined $7,950,000. As far as we know Miz Zellweger still owns a charming farmhouse in East Hampton, NY she acquired in April 2003 for $2,150,000. In early 2010 there were scads of rumors and reports Miz Zellweger and her then man-beau Bradley Cooper picked up a contemporary house in the Rustic Canyon area of Pacific Palisades but to be honest children, we don’t know anything about this house at this point…meaning it’s not clear if it was purchased by Miz Zellweger, Mister Cooper or if they bought it together, which we sort of doubt. We have no inside intel about whether or not Miz Zellweger plans to continue to lighten her real estate load or if she’ll hang on to her house in the Hamptons. listing photos: Coldwell Banker Previews International Read the original: Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

2012 SAG Awards – Jewelry Forecast

2012 SAG Awards – Jewelry Forecast

At the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards, dazzling earrings lit up the Red Carpet. And if recent jewelry trends are any indicator, statement earrings will figure just as prominently on the ears of Hollywood leading ladies at this weekend’s 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Here are some luxurious looks from last year’s event that we wouldn’t mind seeing on the SAG Red Carpet again this year. Natalie Portman, left, and January Jones wore colored diamond earrings with grace at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards. The jewelry world is still buzzing about Natalie Portman’s stunning yellow diamond earrings. The drop earrings featured the best of Tiffany design: Magnificently cut fancy yellow pear-shaped diamonds totaling 27 carats, a crystal-clear white diamond at the earring’s base and a graceful platinum setting that magnified the rare color of the yellow diamonds. These $2 million stunners were by the far the most breathtaking jewelry statement at the 2011 SAG Awards. January Jones also chose colored diamonds to complete her look at the 2011 SAG Awards. Her 8 carat black diamond stud earrings from luxury designer Lorraine Schwartz were effortlessly rich. The dramatic pair added the perfect touch of nighttime glamour to January’s black and gold lace Caroline Herrera dress. Amy Adams chose earthy earrings from Kimberly McDonald to accent her white dress at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Our award for the night’s best modern earring look goes to Amy Adams. Her tribal-inspired earrings featured diamonds in a modern, uniquely shaped white gold setting. With an organic aesthetic and luxurious diamond borders, these Kimberly McDonald earrings added sophistication to Amy Adams’ white Hevre Leoux dress. And her ring was just as eclectically chic: With white diamonds encircling a geode, fire opal and baroque pearl, this piece made a glamorous, nature-inspired statement. A stunningly designed pair of earrings can elevate even the most beautiful Red Carpet look. We’re excited to see how Hollywood’s leading ladies accessorize at this weekend’s 2012 SAG Awards. Check back here on Monday for our recap of the night’s most exquisite jewelry. And remember: You don’t need to be at an awards show to make a Red Carpet statement. Diamond & Estate Trust’s premier collection of diamonds , colored diamonds , rubies , sapphires , emeralds, estate jewelry and signature pieces will help you find your inner luxury and sophistication.

Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

December 29, 2011
Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers. We’ve already covered Top Newcomers , Top Standbys , Best Dining Neighborhood , 2011 described in one word , and Biggest Dining Surprises . Now, Best Meals. Readers, please add your thoughts to the comments. [Scarpetta, Beverly Hills. Elizabeth Daniels ] Q: What was your single best meal of 2011? Lonny Pugh, LA editor, Urban Daddy : Scarpetta . It involved the spaghetti—one of those simple dishes that can’t possibly be as good as everybody says it is. But then it is. And then later you think it can’t possibly be as good as you remember. So you go back and have it again. And it still is. Stephane Bombet, owner, Picca: Gary Menes pop up dinner at Le Comptoir at Tiara Cafe. My favorite dish was his home made foie gras au torchon with balsamic vinegar and callery pears. Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly : A lovely three-hour lunch at Providence – Michael Cimarusti has quietly become the best chef in Los Angeles. Hadley Tomicki, LA editor, Grub Street : I’m still surprised I didn’t wake up at some point when Cimarusti, Ludo, Urasawa, and Zarate came together at Providence, but I’d have to say the kaiseki dinner I had at N/Naka , as I’ve rarely had such an emotional reaction to food. One side of the table was laughing in wonder, the other crying in joy. Lesley Barger Suter , dine editor, LAmag : I keep giving it love, but I’m going to have to say my first meal at Sotto : Bread with lardo, perfect pork meatballs, and that pizza, plus cannolis…all washed down with some amaro. Wolfgang Puck: I would say that my single best meal was at the Fat Duck outside of London if I exclude the meal that Tetsu made for me at Spago. Zach Brooks, Midtown Lunch : Do I have to choose between ink. and Son of a Gun … because I really don’t want to. Jeff Miller, LA editor, Thrillist : I was lucky enough to spend some major time in Las Vegas and got to eat at Bartolotta . Not only was it the best meal I ate all year, but that’s one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. Every single bite was perfect. Yassmin Sarmadi, restaurant owner, Church & State: Chef’s Tasting Menu at Patina – I have always enjoyed Patina, but had not been for some time. Hands down this was one of my best dining experiences in 2011! George Abou-Daoud, restaurateur, Bowery Street Enterprises : Chicharron en Verde followed by Espinoza de Cerdo en Guajillo in Mexico City—-amazing. Lindsay William-Ross, LAist : This is probably the hardest for me to answer, because I can’t just say one thing! I did get to sit down to an amazing meal in the private dining room of Osteria Mozza for a dinner honoring Ruth Reichl where the guests were some amazing local chefs and food writers, which was made only more surreal by the fact that I was high on cold medicine. But a lot of my greatest dining pleasures came while traveling, like the half-dozen fresh oysters I had at Seattle’s Pike Place Market, or the epic meals at Julian Serrano and Sage at the Aria in Vegas with some of my food writing girlfriends. The donuts from The Doughnut Plant in NYC my boyfriend and I ate while walking around the Lower East Side one very cold Sunday morning in March after we flew in on a red eye. A White Spot burger in Vancouver. Anytime I got to share a table with a loved one, or experience something while I traveled, well, that’s my best meal! Daniela Galarza, associate editor, Eater LA: In LA – Picca . Outside of LA – Pok Pok. Maggie Nemser, founder, Blackboard Eats : At Joe’s in Venice with Walter Manzke as the guest chef serving an unforgettable Millbrook Venison with Sauce Poivrade. Josh Lurie, Food GPS : That’s a tough call. My meaty meal at Snow’s BBQ, about an hour outside of Austin, was pretty spectacular. Sooke Harbour House, situated right on the water in a spectacular Vancouver Island setting, was stunning for multiple reasons, including the hyper-local food. Still, since this is Eater LA, let’s go with something that’s actually in Los Angeles. One of my most recent blowout meals in L.A. was at Sushi Gen , where we let a friend take the lead, and he proceeded to order an onslaught of pristine seafood, including toro, uni, mirugai (giant clam) and amaebi (sweet shrimp). Seriously, how could that not taste good? And of course the people were fun, so that always helps. Kat Odell, editor, Eater LA: I would probably have to go with the epic Krug dinner I had earlier this year at Urasawa . Can’t compete with Hiro’s sushi and 15 bottles of vintage Krug divided between 10 diners… also had a surprisingly fun/flavorful dinner at Miss Lily’s recently in NYC. · Year in Eater 2011 [~ELA~] Go here to read the rest: Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE

Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE

As expected , New York’s 1OAK unveils a Vegas version of itself at the Mirage Hotel this weekend. One of the most sought after (read: sold out) tickets in town for New Year’s, this 1OAK is not expected to be another blockbuster Vegas club. Instead, owners Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva told the Wall Street Journal that this location is “going to be more intimate, more exclusive. It’s 16,000 square feet, and a 1,600-person occupancy.” Most clubs in Vegas have at least a 5,000-person occupancy; New York’s 1OAK has an occupancy of 300. When asked about expansion, the partners discuss their strategy and emphasis on building a consistent experience, so that New Yorkers who frequent 1OAK in New York will also want to visit the Vegas location. Says Akiva, “We’re not just in night life—we’re in the hospitality business.” · 1OAK Owners Bring the 1OAK Experience To Las Vegas [~ENY~] · Inside Las Vegas’ 1Oak, On Target To Launch NYE [~ELA~] · 1Oak in Vegas Confirmed [~ELA~] Read more here: Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE
