Go Inside Nicole Richie And Joel Madden’s $2M Hollywood Hills Retreat

From The Simple Life to the extravagant life, Nicole Richie has come a long way. And making it up the Hollywood food chain means one thing… buying some fancy digs.

In this edition of real estate rewind, back in 2009, Paris Hilton’s former BFF and her rocker hubby Joel Madden  plunked down nearly $2 million on this Hollywood Hills compound.

The musically-inclined pair purchased the cool lodge-like pad as they were growing their family with baby No. 2, Sparrow James. And in true form, the abode is just as stylish as his fashion icon mom.

With 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a full guest house and 5,380 square feet, of course, the Maddens bought one of the largest lots in the celeb-rich Laurel Canyon nabe.

Described as an Aspen lodge-meets-tropical paradise, we can see why. The wood-paneled walls, high beamed ceilings, sky domes, intricate stone work, detailed bricks and plenty of sunlight complement the renovated contemporary design with the lush green backdrop.

And as an added bonus — there’s a theater, lagoon-like pool, wall of towering trees for privacy, and Key West-style patio cantina for hanging with the kids or those nights when mommy and daddy want to chill out with their plethora of Hollywood pals.
