Hilary Swank's home is a Spanish-Mediterranean-style estate.

Hilary Swank's home is more than a million dollar baby. The Pacific Palisades home is listed for $9.495 million.

The Academy Award-winning actress bought the property at 439 Paseo Miramar, Pacific Palisades, California 90272 in 2007 for $5.8 million, according to property records. She then reworked and restored the 1928 Mediterranean-style home with Marc Appleton & Associates and designer Mark Zeff.

Measuring 6,722 square feet on a about a third-of-an-acre, Swank's home is, in a word, swank. Dark beamed ceilings, hardwood floors and wrought-iron details fill the 6-bed, 7-bath home. The master suit features a walk-in closet, enormous bathroom and attached terrace. Additional home amenities include the necessary home theater, gym, guest room and pool.

The listing is held by real estate agent Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates Realtors.

P-Diddy's apartment just hit the New York City real estate market for $8.5 million. Although originally a 3-bedroom apartment, Diddy has customized the place to be an entertainer's dream with just one bedroom and huge media and piano room.

The man born as Sean Combs has gone by a variety of monikers, including Puff Daddy, but each name change did nothing to alter his success. The 42-year-old music producer, rapper and businessman is one of the richest faces in hip-hop, earning $45 million a year, according to Forbes.

According to public property records, Diddy bought the Midtown condo located at 230 W 56th St #66-A, New York, New York 10019 in 2005 for $3.82 million.

Listed by Prudential Douglas Elliman real estate agent Rick Kelly, Diddy's modern apartment has some other celebrity neighbors, including spiritual guru Deepak Chopra. It was the former home of James Bond actor Daniel Craig. Only one photo was made available for the listing.

Tatum O'Neal, who entered rehab again in August after a drug arrest in June, has once again listed her New York City condominium for sale.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment at 175 E. Broadway, New York, New York, 10002 has been on and off the market since 2008 and was re-listed for $1.645 million. Situated in the Lower East Side real estate market, the 1,435-square-foot unit is part of the prewar loft conversion building called The Forward Building.

Along with access to lower Manhattan, the apartment features an original ornate plaster ceiling, extra storage in the building's basement, an elevator with direct access to the street, and a 24-hour doorman.

According to the New York Post, O'Neal has rented the apartment out in recent years after she relocated to Los Angeles. She bought the unit in 2006 for $1.425 million and first listed it in June 2008 for $1.675 million.
