Celebrities are among those rethinking their home "price points" this time of year.
-- Actor Kelsey Grammer has put his country English Traditional home on the Westside back on the market at a reduced $15.995 million. That's an 11% markdown from the May price of nearly $18 million.
The estate, built in 1980, features a media room, a gym, a wine cellar, three fireplaces, seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10,567 square feet of living space. There is a swimming pool, a four-car garage and a six-car motor court. The Times Mapping Database considers the neighborhood to be Beverly Crest.
Grammer and his now ex-wife, Camille, paid $13.7 million for the property in 2007, public records show.
-- Actor Beau Bridges and his wife, Wendy, listed their home in gated Hidden Hills two years ago for $3.25 million. The country English-style house returned to the market at $2.65 million, or 18.5% off.
Built in 1976, the house has a sunken den with a fireplace, a bar, a family room, a billiard area, an office with a wine closet, a sauna, six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a maid's room in about 7,000 square feet of living space. The yard, more than an acre, includes a swimming pool, a north-south tennis court and a greenhouse.
They still have plenty of price wiggle room. The pair paid $1.2 million for the place in 1988.
-- Sports agent, developer and rare-coin collector Dwight Manley listed a remodeled house in the Hollywood Hills two years ago at $4,995,000. After multiple price chops down to $2.495 million he found a buyer last week at $2.32 million. That's more than half off what he once hoped to get.
The Spanish-style home, built in 1923, has smart home technology, an oversized media room, three bedrooms and four bathrooms in about 3,000 square feet. The infinity pool features a waterfall.
