Selena Gomez giving up her starter home in the Valley

Building amenities include a 75-foot-long swimming pool, a fitness center and concierge service.

Dunleavy, 60, coached the Lakers, who train at the El Segundo complex, from 1990 to '92 and was interviewed for the position again in 2012 after Mike Brown was fired.

He bought the condo two years ago for $4.5 million, according to public records.

Bachir Oueida of Nelson Shelton & Associates was the listing agent. Steven Levine and Jennifer Levine of Hilton & Hyland/Christie's International Real Estate represented the buyer.

Ranch has a lyrical past

Bernie Taupin, the famed lyricist for singer Elton John, has listed his 28-acre ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley for sale at $5.95 million.

Called Roundup Valley Ranch, the property centers on a Mediterranean-style house with views of the surrounding mountains. Set on a knoll amid oak trees, the 5,000-square-foot main house opens to a courtyard with a fountain.

A great room connects to a bar and entertainment area. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The kitchen features an island, granite and Jerusalem stone counters, a pizza oven and a walk-in pantry.

The detached guesthouse/studio was originally designed as an indoor handball court. Later, it was transformed to a recording studio where albums were cut. Today it functions as an art studio with a gym and has an upstairs office with a bathroom.

Another house on the site overlooks a pond, waterfall and the equestrian area, which has a covered arena, a 10-stall barn and storage buildings. There's a swimming pool and plenty of pastureland.

Taupin, 63, wrote the words for such hits as "Your Song," "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." He had a lifelong dream of living on a working ranch and in 1992 bought the property, where he has raised horses.

Carey Kendall of Village Properties is the listing agent.

Newlywed ditching her former home

Alexandra Hedison, who married actress Jodie Foster in April, listed her Hollywood Hills West home for sale at $2.75 million and within two weeks it was in escrow.

The actress-photographer left her design mark on the 1956 home, rebuilding and updating it with new wiring, plumbing, roof and windows, a security system and other improvements.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom house is boomerang-shaped, with nearly every room looking out on a central swimming pool with canyon and city views. Clerestory windows and sliding glass doors flood the house with light.

Two fireplaces, terrazzo flooring and multiple patios are other home features.

Hedison, 44, is an accomplished photographer whose works have been displayed around the world. Her acting credits include "The L Word" (2006-09), "Prey" (1998) and "L.A. Firefighters" (1996-97).
