Prolific film and television producer Brian Grazer has bought an estate in Santa Monica.
The 10,000-plus-square-foot Spanish-style house, built in 1990, has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, according to the Los Angeles County Office of the Assessor. Title documents show that the house sold in December.
The property was not listed on the Multiple Listing Service and the sales price has yet to appear on public records, but area real estate agents estimated the price at $16 million. The lot of less than 2 acres also has a swimming pool.
Grazer put his 6,000-square-foot Malibu beach house up for sale in May at $19.5 million, but the listing was withdrawn at the end of the year. Withdrawals of high-profile homes sometimes indicate a deal has been struck and the seller intends to close without the sale being reported on the MLS. It can take weeks or even months for sales prices to appear in public records. The three-story Mediterranean-style home with a swimming pool, features a gym, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
Grazer, 60, co-founded Imagine Entertainment with Ron Howard. He will produce the 84th Annual Academy Awards next month. Last year he produced five films including "J. Edgar" and "Tower Heist" as well as episodes of "Friday Night Lights" and "Lie to Me."
The Oscar-winning producer was unavailable for comment, his publicist said.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
