Actress Patricia Heaton, who stars in The Middle, and her husband, actor David Hunt, put their home in Hancock Park up for sale at $8.295 million, and in three weeks it was in escrow.
The Italianate Mediterranean-style estate was built in 1923. The architect was Pasadena-based Elmer Grey, who designed the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Pasadena Playhouse and the Huntington Art Gallery, among other landmarks.
Nearly 8,400 square feet of interior space features Malibu tile, murals, wrought-iron work, a library, a billiard room, seven fireplaces, six bedrooms, five bathrooms, two offices and a guesthouse/screening room. There is a four-car garage and a motor court.
The grounds of more than an acre include a wisteria-covered arbor, patios, a pool with a changing room and bathroom, a paddle tennis court and expansive lawns.
The couple is selling because they plan to downsize now that their family is grown. They bought the property in 2001 for $4.85 million, public records show.
Country musician Brad Paisley, 40, and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, 41, have listed a home in Pacific Palisades for $2.995 million.
The restored house, built in 1925, features a two-story living room with a fireplace, beamed ceilings and stained-glass windows. The 3,394-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is a detached garage with a bonus room, a lawn and citrus trees.
Lot for sale
Perhaps they had a change of heart. Actors Kurt Russell, 61, and Goldie Hawn, 67, have put a Pacific Palisades property they bought two years ago on the market at $6.5 million — minus the house.
The couple purchased the lot in early 2011 for $5.7 million, public records show, and razed the existing house and pool. The graded lot of more than a half-acre is level and has views of the Getty, Century City and the mountains.
Costas on move
NBC and Olympics sportscaster Bob Costas, 60, and his wife, Jill, have bought a house in a gated community in Newport Coast for $4.7 million.
The more than half-acre lot contains a main house, a guesthouse, a saltwater pool with spa, a cabana with a fireplace, a pool house with a kitchen and brick patios. There are four bedrooms, six bathrooms and 4,534 square feet of living space.
A home in Pacific Palisades that once belonged to President Ronald Reagan has sold for $5.211 million. The Midcentury-style house had been listed two months ago at $4.999 million. That’s a 4 percent presidential premium.
Set on close to two-thirds of an acre in the Riviera neighborhood, the single-story house features floor-to-ceiling windows, a den with a wet bar, a flagstone fireplace, an island in the kitchen, four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 4,764 square feet of living space. The house opens to a pool and patio with city and ocean views.
The property last sold in 1988 for $1.95 million, public records show.
Actor Scott Baio and his siblings have sold their mother’s Toluca Lake home for $3.15 million.
The 11,075-square-foot house sits on more than a half-acre of gated grounds. The expansive master suite includes a sitting room, two fireplaces, a gym, a sauna and an office. There are six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a 10-car garage.
The property was purchased in 1994 for $1.305 million, according to public records.
