Music producer Richard Perry has officially beat it out of Beverly Hills, selling his home of six years for $8.535 million.
Perry bought the home six years ago for $7.2 million and had lived there with his former partner, actress Jane Fonda. The couple announced last year that they were ending their relationship of nearly a decade; Fonda has since decamped to Century City, where she bought a town home in a gated community for $5.45 million.
The gated contemporary home, built in 1961 and since renovated, was previously owned by late television director John Rich. It features clean lines, beamed ceilings and a glass-walled elevator. Large double-glazed windows take in leafy backyard views.
Within more than 7,500 square feet of interior is an updated kitchen, a large great room, four bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The lower level holds a recording studio, media room and dine-style wet bar. The master suite has a sitting room and an adjoining office.
A paver patio encloses a solar-heated swimming pool in the backyard. Elsewhere is a meditation garden, a fire pit and a lookout point for enjoying canyon to ocean views.
Perry, 75, is credited with scores of popular music hits during the 1960s and '70s and has won Producer of the Year awards from Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines. He has produced hit albums and singles for such artists as Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and the Pointer Sisters.
Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage were the listing agents. Jonathan Nash and Stephen Resnick of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, represented the buyer.
