Last year, Cyrus plunked down the very grown-up sum of $3.9 million for a mid-century modern Studio City house, according to NBC New York. The private, gated and walled property features a double-sided fireplace and sliding glass doors leading out to the deck and patio.

At 22, country pop singer/musician Taylor Swift has already been quite active in real estate. According to The Real Estalker blog, she bought a penthouse duplex in Nashville’s The Adelicia in 2009. Last year she bought a house in Nashville for her family, and just months later it went back on the market.
Swift picked this one up in spring 2011 for $3.975 million, according to Realtor.com. Built in 1941, this feminine and gracious traditional home manages to reflect its current owner. An unidentified source told the New York Post that Swift bought this house so she wouldn’t have to stay in hotels when she was in L.A.

This modern house could be the ultimate fan headquarters for a die-hard Twihard. For a few months, it was rented by “Twilight” stars and real-life couple Robert Pattinson, 25, and Kristen Stewart, 21, and it went on the market around the premiere of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” for just under $6 million, according to the listing on Realtor.com.
With its Southern California location, its fabulous views of Canyon Reservoir, its abundance of natural light and its pool and patio, it’s easier to picture buff, shirtless teen werewolves living here than pale, sparkling vampires. Whatever their reasons for choosing it, the famously private couple continue to remain mum.

The star of “Gossip Girl” picked up this new home last fall (these photos were taken prior to her purchase). It was a big year for the 25-year-old actress, who was also battling her mother with a lawsuit and countersuit.
The single-story home was built in 1948 but has been updated with features demanded by modern buyers: a current kitchen with a breakfast bar, and the addition of a steam shower and walk-in closets.
