Hot Property: L.A.

Hawn, Russell bail out of Malibu house

 

Los Angeles Times

After a couple of years and price cuts, actors Goldie Hawn, 67, and Kurt Russell, 62, have closed up their longtime Malibu beach house, selling it for $9.5 million.

Entered through a gated courtyard, the Balinese-inspired house backs up to sand dunes and the ocean. The 4,200-square-foot house, built in 1978, was redesigned and renovated in 2005. There is a screening room, an office and a detached guesthouse. The master suite features floor-to-ceiling windows and a beachfront balcony for a total of four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

The property, which has been for sale or lease frequently since 1995, was listed two years ago at a high of $14.749 million.

New L.A. Laker Chris Kaman has parted with his house in Manhattan Beach for $4.2 million.

The Spanish-style house, built in 2006, features a rotunda entry, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a terrace and 5,442 square feet of living space on two stories.

The white stucco home with a red-tile roof has a three-car garage with wooden doors and sits on a 7,564-square-foot lot with a walled-in yard.

The former Dallas Mavericks center, who played for the Los Angeles Clippers for eight years, signed a $3.2-million, one-year agreement with the Lakers.

‘INTERN’ a HOMEOWNER

The newly renovated contemporary, built in 1977, features city views, a game room, a wine cellar, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and more than 3,700 square feet of living space. It sits on more than three-quarters of an acre.

THERE’S A POND

No doubt he’d like to meet the buyers.

Screenwriter Jim Herzfeld, of Meet the Fockers and Meet the Parents fame, has his home listed in Pasadena at $4.195 million.

The traditional-style house, built in 1999, has the distinction of sitting on close to an acre with a spring-fed pond. Not any easy amenity to come by in the Los Angeles area.

The home’s 6,600 square feet of living space includes dining, family and living rooms, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. There’s also a swimming pool.

Herzfeld bought the property in 1998 for $720,000, public records show.
