Actors Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, who are in the process of divorcing, have begun to unload their real estate assets. The estranged couple recently sold a home for $2.6 million in an off-market deal and put another on the market for $1.299 million.
On the sale side, Fox and Green parted ways with their ranch-style house in Toluca Lake that was originally part of an estate owned by crooner Bing Crosby.
Built in 1936 and remodeled in 2008, the home features raised ceilings with exposed beams, rows of skylights, a library and a rec room. A wall fireplace divides the open-plan living room and kitchen, which has a center island topped with Australian opal granite. The master suite has his-and-hers bathrooms, a pair of walk-in closets and a lofted bonus area. There are four bedrooms and six bedrooms in 6,710 square feet of living space.
Outdoors, mature oaks and olive trees fill the one-acre setting. A saltwater swimming pool, a spa, a fire pit and a 563-square-foot pool house with a kitchen are within the grounds.
They bought the house two years ago for $3.35 million, records show.
For sale in Sherman Oaks is a 2,500-square-foot home owned by the couple since 2012. The single-story Traditional has an open-plan great room, kitchen and dining area. A den/office, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room complete the floor plan.
A stacked-stone outdoor fireplace, a koi pond and a waterfall highlight the grounds.
Fox, 29, is known for the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action films. She will reprise her role as April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, due out in June.
Green, 42, starred in the original Beverly Hills, 90210 series. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Anger Management and Desperate Housewives are among his other TV credits.
MACKIE SELLING HIS HOME IN THE HILLS
Renowned fashion designer Bob Mackie has put his home of more than a decade in Hollywood Hills West on the market for $2.175 million. The ranch-style house on a corner lot was built in 1962 and has five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in more than 3,400 square feet of living space.
The home features a living room with a midcentury-style rock fireplace, a formal dining room with built-in shelves and an office. A burnt orange backsplash and island countertop lend pops of color to the eat-in kitchen. One of two master suites has adjacent built-in bookshelves, a sitting area and French doors that open to a trellis-topped sitting area.
A patio patterned in herringbone brick, a swimming pool and drought-tolerant landscaping make up the one-third-acre grounds.
Mackie, 75, is a nine-time Emmy winner and three-time Oscar nominee who dressed such stars as Cher, Bette Midler, Judy Garland and Joan Rivers. He designed costumes for Carol Burnett on The Carol Burnett Show during its entire run, as well as its spinoff Mama’s Family.
He bought the house in 2005 for $1.695 million, records show.
A JONAS MOVES INTO THE HILLS
Homes, girlfriends, groups, wet bars — there’s no keeping up with Joe Jonas these days. The actor-singer of Jonas Brothers and DNCE fame has leased a home in Hollywood Hills West for $40,000 a month.
The Midcentury Modern house, built in 1962 and recently restored, retains its original vibe with a facade done in decorative concrete blocks, walls of floor-to-ceiling glass and a circular living room with a hidden wet bar. Other features include a two-way fireplace and a chef’s kitchen with a chrome-topped island. The master suite features a circular bathroom and soaking tub, for a total of three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 3,323 square feet.
A swimming pool, a raised deck and landscaping are within grounds of close to an acre. Expansive views take in the downtown cityscape.
Formerly owned by record producer Neil Norman, the house sold two years ago for $1.85 million. It is currently listed for sale at $4.595 million.
The 26-year-old musician formed the pop rock group DNCE last year and has released one extended play album, SWAAY. He previously fronted the Jonas Brothers, a band that included his brothers Nick and Kevin.
BREAKING EVEN AND THEN SOME
Emmy-winning actress Anna Gunn of Breaking Bad fame has sold her home in Hollywood Hills for $2 million.
The remodeled Midcentury Modern house, built in 1965, captures Southern California’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle with an atrium courtyard, a lounging deck and a black-bottom swimming pool and spa. Sliding glass doors bring the outside in.
Within the 2,447 square feet of open-plan space is a living/dining room with a corner fireplace, an updated kitchen with a center island and a family/media room with wall-to-wall bookshelves. High ceilings and walls of glass highlight the interior details.
The master suite has a walk-in closet and French doors that open to the pool. In all, there are five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a powder room.
Hedged by mature trees, the one-third-acre grounds contain patios, gardens and lawn. Views take in the Hollywood sign and surrounding areas.
Gunn, 47, twice won Emmys for her supporting role as Skyler White on Breaking Bad. Among her other television credits are Deadwood, Criminal Minds and the miniseries Gracepoint.
She bought the house more than a decade ago for $1.775 million.
DESERT DIGS WITH AN OSCAR PEDIGREE
A former home of Edith Head, the Oscar-winning costume designer, has come on the market in Palm Springs for $849,000. Found near the storied Movie Colony neighborhood, the updated 1950s Hacienda-style house is distinguished by its rustic Saltillo-tiled floors, beamed ceilings and an arched front entry.
Within the 2,200 square feet of space are open-area living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen, a breakfast area and an office/bonus room. Large picture windows invite natural light, and a fireplace with artistic tile adds a splash of color. Wood-framed glass doors bring the outdoors inside. The master suite has a tiled spa and a fireplace. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Outdoors, privacy hedges and mountain views form the backdrop for a blue-tiled swimming pool with a spa and waterfall feature. A covered patio, citrus trees, fountains and drought-tolerant landscaping complete the setting.
The house changed hands five years ago for $570,000 and in 2007 for $500,000. In 1977, it sold for $58,000, records show.
