Hot Property: L.A.

Facinelli and ex-wife sell Toluca Lake home

 

Los Angeles Times

Peter Facinelli, 39, who plays doctors in the Twilight films and the Nurse Jackie television series, and his ex-wife, actress Jennie Garth, 41, have sold their home in Toluca Lake for $3.99 million. The buyer is The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady, 53.

The Paul Williams-designed traditional house, built in 1937, has a long Hollywood history. It was once the home of country singer and actor Tex Ritter and the childhood home of his son, the late actor John Ritter. Enlarged since Williams’ day and renovated, the house has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 8,416 square feet of living space.

There are formal living and dining rooms, a bar room, a game room, a kitchen fireplace, dual master bedroom suites, a gym, a media room and two offices.

The gated, nearly half-acre property contains a five-car garage, an outdoor kitchen and a pool.

Facinelli and Garth purchased the home in 2003 for $1.35 million, according to public records.

HOLMBY HILLS

Actors Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters have sold their latest house remodel in Holmby Hills for $24 million. The Roaring ‘20s Art Deco-style mansion was listed at $24.95 million.

The Reserve, which has a wine cellar, a theater, five fireplaces, six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 10,005 square feet of living space, was sold furnished and toothbrush ready. Among items included were a stocked bar and linens. The two-acre property features gates, a cobblestone driveway and a pool with spa.

Renner and Winters have been buying and redoing residential properties for more than a decade. The mansion is a showcase of Winters’ work, although property records show ownership was in a trust they have used jointly in the past.

The property was purchased in 2010 for $7 million, public records show.

PETTY’S HANGOUT

The Encino home where Tom Petty once lived and composed songs has been put up for sale by his ex-wife, Jane Petty, at $3.575 million.

The gated estate of less than an acre features a lagoon pool and waterfall spa. The 9,076 square feet of living space includes a two-story fireplace, a media room, a loft-like gym, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

An arson fire at the home in 1987 spared Petty’s basement studio, where he stored his guitars and master recordings, according to Los Angeles Times reports at the time.

Petty, 62, is the frontman for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

STYX GUITARIST

Styx guitarist and singer Tommy Shaw has sold his Hollywood Hills home to Swedish DJ Eric Prydz for $5.3 million.

The gated hilltop compound includes a two-story main house, two guesthouses, a free-form pool, a cascading spa fountain and a pavilion lounge on less than an acre.

Shaw, 59, has played with the bands Damn Yankees and Shaw Blades too, as well as done solo work. Prydz, 37, also is a Los Angeles-based producer.

Quaid listing

Actor Dennis Quaid, 59, listed a house in Pacific Palisades at $3.15 million Aug. 15 and already has a buyer.

He purchased the remodeled contemporary home for $3.1 million earlier this year, several months after he and Kimberly Quaid filed for divorce a second time.

The 3,421-square-foot home features an open floor plan, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. There is a saltwater pool, a spa and patio space.
