Guitarist Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction and "Ink Master" fame has put his Hollywood loft up for sale at $899,000.

The 1,570-square-foot unit features black glass-beaded wallpaper in the entry, 15-foot ceilings, blackout curtains and views of the Capitol Records building and the Hollywood sign.

"It was one big space," said decorator Heidi Toll, who worked with Navarro to design the loft. So they carved out rooms within the open-plan space by using different finishes and features.

"He was very artistic and into the process," Toll said. "He travels so much he likes simple hotel-like rooms. But obviously we had to fit it to his personality, which is very much a rock star."

A broken-mirror backsplash sets off the sleek kitchen, which has stainless-steel appliances and black-quartz counters. A light fixture in the dining area is made of orbs hung from the ceiling to evoke stars.

Offered in the sale is Navarro's white patent-leather upholstered platform bed, which was custom designed for the room.

The black-walled bathroom has a red ceiling. A large makeup mirror spans the space above the double sinks.

The loft is in the Broadway Hollywood, a former department store built in the late 1920s. The building has a doorman, a 24-hour valet, a fitness center, and a swimming pool with cabanas and a fireplace.

The tattooed rocker, 46, is the host of Spike TV's "Ink Master" competition show and has been part of such musical groups as the on-again/off-again Jane's Addiction, Deconstruction and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

He bought the property in 2007 for $1.04 million, public records show.

Skyler Hynes of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.

Actress ready for seller role

Actress Victoria Tennant has listed her home in Bel-Air for sale at $6.995 million.

The traditional-style house, built in 1949, sits behind gates on close to three-quarters of an acre with a brick patio, a swimming pool, gardens and mature trees.

Decorated by Kathryn Ireland, the home features a formal dining room, a library, a country kitchen, an office, a downstairs family room, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The master suite includes dual bathrooms, a fireplace and an office or nursery space.

Tennant, 63, has scores of acting credits including the 1994 TV series "Snowy River" and the mini-series "War and Remembrance" (1988-89) and "The Winds of War." She starred in two Steve Martin films, "All of Me" (1984) and "L.A. Story" (1991), and was married to Martin from 1986 to 1994.

Last year she was in the movies "Cold Turkey" and "Louder Than Words." Tennant will be in the romantic comedy "The List" later this year.

Juliette Hohnen of Hilton & Hyland / Christie's International Real Estate is the listing agent.

Palos Verdes resale is a slam dunk

Sasha Vujacic, the former Lakers guard, has sold an ocean-view house in Palos Verdes Estates for $2.6 million.

Called La Casa Moderna, the Midcentury Modern-style, glass-and-wood house was built in 1966. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in views of the coastline, the ocean and Santa Catalina Island.

The open-plan main floor of the 3,455-square-foot house combines the living room, den, dining room and kitchen and opens to a balcony. Appointments include crystal light fixtures, remote-controlled window coverings and Venetian-style plaster. There are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and a fourth bathroom.

A waterfall fountain cascades toward the swimming pool on the quarter-acre-plus site.

The two-time NBA champion, 30, played with the Lakers from 2004 to 2010, moved to the New Jersey Nets and then to Anadolu Efes in Turkey. After signing a 10-day contract this year with the Clippers, he joined Reyer Venezia Mestre in Italy. His family operates S&G Estate, a winery and olive oil operation, in Paso Robles, Calif.

He bought the Palos Verdes Estates property two years ago for $1.38 million, public records show.

Ornella Green of Re/Max Estate Properties was the listing agent. Karina Pacific of NWRE Brokers represented the buyer.

A villa of mythical proportions

Kevin Sorbo, known for his portrayal of Hercules and other muscular heroes, and his wife, actress Sam Jenkins, have listed their estate in Westlake Village at $4.5 million.

The remodeled Mediterranean villa sits behind gates on 1.5 acres with a detached gym/pool house, a swimming pool set up for water volleyball, a spa, a covered entertainment area, an outdoor fireplace and a putting green. There's an expansive flat lawn suitable for javelin and discus throwing.

Features of the elegant 7,556-square-foot home include a home theater with two tiers of seating, a game room, a den, two offices, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

Former model Sorbo, 55, has starred as hunks in "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" (1995-99) and "Andromeda" (2002-05). He has scores of film and television credits for acting as well as producing. Sorbo will star in the upcoming films "Forgiven" and "Beyond the Game."

Jenkins, 47, also was a model and played Serena on "Hercules."

The couple bought the property in 2008 for $3.2 million, public records show.

Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olson & Associates will do the heavy lifting on selling the home.

Producer's estate sees some action

Michael Bay, the "Transformers" film series producer, has sold his estate in Bel-Air for $11.45 million.

The three-story, clean-lined contemporary was designed by the late Jack Warner, whose architectural firm worked on the Bel-Air Country Club. The 7,919-square-foot, museum-like house features high ceilings, a family room with a bar, a library, a home theater, a wine cellar, four fireplaces, four bedrooms and six bathrooms.

The nearly 1-acre promontory has views that take in the Los Angeles Basin, Mt. Baldy and Santa Monica Bay. The site includes a swimming pool and mature trees.

Bay, 49, has produced and/or directed a host of action films, including "Pain & Gain" (2013), "Pearl Harbor" (2001) and "Armageddon" (1998).

His fright flicks include "Friday the 13th" (2009), "The Amityville Horror" (2005) and two "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" films (2003 and 2006). Among upcoming films are "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

Bay bought the house in 1999 for $5.16 million, public records show.
