Whether it's as sellers or landlords, actor-director Warren Beatty and his wife, actress Annette Bening, are up for new roles. They have listed their ivy-clad home in Beverly Crest for $6.995 million.
The house, built in 1992, had been for rent last year at $27,500 a month and is still available for lease at $19,995 a month.
The Mediterranean-style mansion of 10,594 square feet includes a media room, a library, a gym, an office, maid's quarters, six family bedrooms and eight bathrooms in two stories. The acre-plus site contains a separate guesthouse, a swimming pool with spa, mature trees and expansive lawns.
Beatty, 75, is known for his leading roles in "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967), "Dick Tracy" (1990) and "Bulworth" (1998). He won an Oscar for directing "Reds" (1981) and received the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 2000.
Bening, 54, was nominated for Oscars for her work in "The Grifters" (1990), "American Beauty" (1999), "Being Julia" (2004) and "The Kids Are All Right" (2010).

An enterprise of his own

Sales price is 'practically perfect'
Singer and actress Julie Andrews has sold her house in Brentwood for $2.705 million — slightly above what she was asking.
Andrews owned the traditional-style home with her late husband, director and screenwriter Blake Edwards. Less than a month after coming on the market at $2.649 million in April, the tidy white home with gray shutters was in escrow.
Features include a family room and living room with French doors opening to a garden and a formal dining room with a cathedral ceiling. An artist's studio with a bathroom sits above the garage for a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The lot, which is less than a quarter acre, is surrounded by tall hedges and is gated. There is a swimming pool and spa.
Andrews, 76, starred in musicals including "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot." She won a lead actress Oscar for "Mary Poppins" (1964) and starred in "The Sound of Music" (1965), "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (1967), "Victor Victoria" (1982) and the "Princess Diaries" films in 2001 and 2004. Last year she received a Grammy Award for lifetime achievement.
Edwards, who died in 2010 at 88, received an honorary Oscar in 2004 for his work including "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961), "The Great Race" (1965) and the "Pink Panther" films.
Public records show the property was purchased in 1989 for $1.2 million.
Gary Glass of Prudential California Realty in Brentwood was the listing agent. Jody Fine of Prudential's Palisades office represented the buyer.
A spot to watch the bay
Former "Baywatch" babe Pamela Anderson is looking for a renter with $50,000 a month to spare for her place in a gated community in Malibu.
The teak-sided house, built in 1959, is entered through a gated courtyard planted with lavender and olive trees. Some 2,750 square feet of living space includes an open plan living room and kitchen, a home theater and furnishings such as a baby grand piano. There are three bedrooms, 21/2 bathrooms and a sauna. Outdoor amenities include a rooftop deck and a swimming pool.
Anderson, 45, also starred in the series "Stacked" (2005-06) and "V.I.P." (1998-2002).

Hoping flip clicks with a buyer
Celebrity and fashion photographer Mark Liddell has listed a house in the Hollywood Hills West area at $2.325 million.

The house has 2,652 square feet of living space including a living room, family room, formal dining room, a kitchen with breakfast area and two master suites for a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Glendale home could be a hit
The former Casey Stengel estate, built for the baseball legend in 1925, is on the market in Glendale at $2.41 million.
The Mediterranean-style house of about 4,600 square feet sits on nearly an acre with a pool house, a swimming pool, a tennis court and a fruit orchard. The main house features a foyer with a staircase, a living room with a barrel ceiling, five bedrooms and five bathrooms. There is a separate maid's quarters off the garage.
The Major League Baseball outfielder went on to manage the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Boston Braves, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets before retiring in 1965. Stengel was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame the next year. He lived at the Glendale house until his death in 1975 at 85.
The estate was bought in probate in 1978 from the Stengel family by veterinarian James C. Davis, who owned Davis Animal Hospital in Valley Village from 1964 to 2000. His celebrity clients included Cher, Henry Winkler and Marlon Brando.
