Oscar Spotlight: The Homes of Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling seems to have it all, so it’s good to be among celebrities. He’s paired with Eva Mendes, he’s got the dream job, his “Hey Girl” is memed worldwide, he gained a 30 million dollar fortune with The Notebook & Murder by Numbers, and he’s currently driving a Prius. (Wait, what?)

Gosling starred in the romantic musical La La Land in 2016, and for his performance, he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and received another nomination. 

Ryan Gosling’s career

Ryan Thomas Gosling was born in 1980, and it didn’t take long for his looks and talent to gain him attention. He started his career on the Mickey Mouse Club, did a stint on Afraid of the Dark, and then moved on to Goosebumps.

A 2006 Oscar nominee for his role in Half Nelson came shortly after he catapulted to fame in 2004 for his role in The Notebook, and he was nominated in 2007 for a Golden Globe Award for his performance in Lars and the Real Girl. 2010 brought the insanely popular Blue Valentine and another Golden Globe nominee, which was followed up by three blockbuster roles in 2011; Crazy Stupid Love, The Ides of March, and Drive.

Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River was a disappointment, but he rebounded with the critically acclaimed The Big Short (hello Golden Globe win at last!) and followed up with La-La Land. Further acclaimed performances are his debut in the science fiction film Blade Runner 2049 in 2017 as well as the American biographical drama First Man in 2018.

Gosling is more than just a pretty face – he’s got singing chops, too. His band released their self-titled album Dead Man’s Bones in 2009 and ended up touring North America the same year. Also, through the years Gosling has been a very strong advocate for peace and raising awareness in some of the conflict areas of Africa. He is a strong supporter of PETA, Invisible Children, and the Enough Project and for more than a decade now he has traveled in Uganda, Chad, and Eastern Congo to raise awareness about the conflict in these regions.

How does the heartthrob, former Disney child star, and musician from Cornwall, Ontario, Canada spend his money?  A lot of it goes in and out of real estate.

The residences of Ryan Gosling

Gosling previously resided in New York City with his mixed-breed dog, George. He co-owns Tagine, a Moroccan restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. He bought the restaurant on an impulse; said that he spent “all [his] money” on it, and spent a year doing the renovation work himself. He still oversees the restaurant’s menus.

For a time Ryan rented the famous Ridgewood house in the Buckhead area of Atlanta; it also housed Liam Hemsworth at one point. The home is a hot spot for actors, musicians, and other celebrities and is often used for film shoots and music video locations.

Eva’s home in LA

Ryan lived for some time with Mendes in the actress’s LA home in Los Feliz. Where else would you expect to see famous celebrities such as Ryan and Eva if not in Los Angeles, the city that holds some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. A city that has just turned 239 years old on  September 4, 2020 deserves a happy birthday, LA and another notorious couple amongst it’s ranks.

 The flamboyant home from Los Feliz was owned by Eva Mendes, but it shortly became the home of Ryan Gosling after he moved in with her. This impressive home boasts a bohemian style design with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cedar hot tub, an outdoor shower and an “entertaining deck”.

Gosling loved to spend his time on the lounge where he would often play the piano or just lay back and relax. The chicken coop is another addition to the house and this is where Gosling gets his organic eggs. An outdoor eat overlooking the beautiful scenery of Los Feliz is a nice addition to the home, and the love for art can be noticed as soon as you encounter some of the outdoor art they own. Edgy carpets, retro kitchen, modern bathrooms, and a stunning LA view are what the actors get to enjoy on a daily basis.

However, in 2014 his wife sold this impressive home for a staggering 1.27 million. Originally she bought the home with former flame George Gaurgurevich, but later acquired a larger home in the neighborhood and let the modern deco mansion go – it sold for more than asking price.

Gosling’s current residence

The couple currently owns a place in Los Feliz, where they try to stay out of the spotlight, although Ryan can be seen ducking in and out of his favorite haunts for lunch or having breakfast with daughter Esmerelda at the duo’s prime breakfast spot, Little Dom’s Deli. 

Gosling and Mendes like to rent out lavish places for a weekend or a month at a time-most recently, the couple spent her birthday at Frank Sinatra’s former elegant house in Palm Springs enjoying the luxury in a city known as “The Playground for Stars.”

In April 2020 the couple were spotted in San Marino, a region that is located about 30 minutes away from downtown LA. They were spotted out shopping with their daughters, however, it wasn’t your standard visit to shops, but in fact, they were viewing a house located in the San Marino area.

While the Gosling families homes were not as many or as impressive as Denzel Washington’s homes or Meryl Streep’s Mansions for that matter, they were on the lookout for something really special this time around.

This impressive $8 million dollar mansion has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three en-suites. The home also features a couple of living rooms, outdoor living spaces, and a gourmet kitchen. Not to mention the fact that the home comes with a gym, wine cellar, swimming pool, library, spa, and other amenities to complement their lavish lifestyle, things you don’t find in your average house. 

There is no saying yet of whether Ryan Gosling lives in San Marino yet, but since he and his partner Eva Mendes are scoping out for a new home, it might be a good indication of the fact that they will be moving soon.

In the meantime, people are shifting their attention to another celebrity that is rumored to have bought Ryan Gosling’s home from the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Did Pharrell just buy Ryan Gosling’s house?

Ryan Gosling indeed managed to deliver a stunning performance in the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. However, many were also impressed by Ryan Gosling’s glass-and-steel home present in the movie. The eye-catching property received a lot of attention lately from the media as it switched owners, and another celebrity managed to get his hands on the property.

Obviously, this impressive property was used as a prop, and Ryan Gosling didn’t own it in real life. However, recent news might indicate that the exact property featured in the movie is now the home to the famous singer Pharrell Williams. With so many paparazzi and median roaming around, there is no surprise that the property and it’s owner are no longer a secret.

The real-life Skyline Residence, home to the Grammy-award singer, is a beautiful sight for sore eyes, and here are some details about the luxurious property. The glass wall is probably one of the most catchy features as you can see the grand interior design from the outside and the breathtaking LA skyline from the inside. The kitchen features Terrazzo floors, a spacious island, and quartz countertops all of which fit the standards of a world-renowned actor and a Grammy award singer. Windows in the kitchen are just as large as the one featured in the living room, if not bigger, making the most out of the view.

A glass-door in the kitchen leads straight to the poolside, and the modernist compound features a separate guest house with multiple bedrooms that are just as luxurious. The master bedroom might lack privacy, but it makes up for it in style, with floating shelves, fur finishes, and sleek wall sconces for a luxurious vibe.

The entryway features a flight of stairs that open up to the glowing main house, and the scant outdoor space features an outdoor theater worthy of a superstar. When Pharell is not in the mood for a movie, he can use this space to enjoy a cozy evening as the modular section can quickly turn into an outdoor lounge. Ever wondered why the infinity-edge pool never made an appearance in the movie? We don’t know either, but it is a great place to relax and soak up the LA sun.

Variety suggests that the home was sold in 2009 at a price of about $5.9 million, and it came on the market in January at the cost of $9 million. Pharrell managed to bring the price down by a fair bit, snagging the deal at $7.14 million. 

The glass-and-steel home of Ryan Gosling from the movie, managed to stir a lot of attention especially when the media found out that it was sold. Furthermore, the home was bought by the renowned singer Pharrell Williams, who managed to snag a really good deal for it. 

Even Though, the home wasn’t actually belonging to Ryan Gosling, we do know that he and his wife Eva are out there on the market searching for their dream home. No one knows what’s it going to be this time but we can only guess that the star couple is aiming for a home fit for two celebrities.
