Homes gossip: Goldie Hawn; Kurt Russell; Gary Numan
Goldie and Kurt leave the beach
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are determined to sell their Malibu beach house. The Hollywood couple have knocked £2.2 million off the asking price, putting it back on the market at £6.9 million. With magnificent sea views from the beachside balcony, the four-bedroom home also includes a cinema, bar, gym and a detached guest house.
Russell — who with Sacha Baron Cohen last week dropped out of the filming of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained — and his glamorous 66-year-old wife moved out of the home to live in an LA mansion a few blocks from daughter Kate Hudson, her beau Matt Bellamy and their baby boy.

It's a twister in Elephant & Castle
Architects Julian and Cari-Jane Hakes set up their first design studio in a spare student room. More than a decade later, the creative couple still like keeping things close to home.
Their apartment in the Jam Factory in Elephant & Castle doubles as a dynamic work space. With a rooftop offering views of the London skyline, they need not travel far for style inspiration.
The SE1 pad is also the hub of Julian’s shoe business. The director of Hakes Associates has ventured from buildings and bridges into the world of fabulous footwear. His architecturally inspired Mojito shoe design has been such a hit at the London, Paris and New York fashion weeks that it has received pre-orders from Lady Gaga and Katy Perry (pictured).
