Beau Bridges and his wife, Wendy, have sold their home in gated Hidden Hills for $2.4 million – twice what they originally paid.
The sale was a while in the making, however. They first listed the country English-style house for sale in 2010 at $3.25 million and later turned to leasing.
Designed by architect Marshall Lewis and built in 1976, the ivy-covered house has a sunken den with a fireplace, a bar, a family room, a billiard area, an office, an ample wine cellar, a sauna, six bedrooms and six bathrooms in about 6,800 square feet of living space. A spiral staircase leads to loft space.
The ambience under the wood shake roof is cozy and relaxed. An atrium breakfast room takes in the views of mature trees. Skylights and wood beams complete the picture.
French doors open off the dining room to a patio. The yard, more than an acre, includes a swimming pool with a spa, a north-south tennis court, fruit trees and a greenhouse.
The Emmy-winning Bridges, 72, will be in the films “Underdogs,” “Tumbledown” and “San Patricios,” all due for release this year. He has starred on the series “The Millers” since last year. He was on “Masters of Sex” (2013), two "Stargate" series and "Harts of the West" (1993-94).
The couple bought the home in 1988 for $1.2 million.
Dana Olmes and Jeffery Biebuyck of Ewing Sotheby’s International Real Estate handled the transaction.
