Singer-actress Hilary Duff has sold her Toluca Lake estate for slightly less than its asking price of $6.25 million.
The buyers are designer Don Stanzione and Sheri Callan, who owns Callan Advertising, which focuses on the independent film industry.
The reinvented Mediterranean mansion, built in 1951, features a central courtyard, high ceilings, an industrial-style kitchen, a gym, a billiards room, multiple offices, art and dance studios, a bar, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and 9,277 square feet of living space. There is also a swimming pool and spa next to an outdoor living room on the nearly half-acre walled property.
Duff, 24, who had her own Disney Channel show during her teens, became a mother in March. Since the former teen idol starred in "Lizzie McGuire" (2001-4), she has appeared on "Gossip Girl" (2009). Her film work includes the "Cheaper by the Dozen" movies (2003 and 2005), "The Cinderella Story" (2004) and the 2012 comedy "She Wants Me." Among her albums are "Metamorphosis" (2003) and "Dignity" (2007). She also has launched several fashion lines and written a series of three young adult novels.
Public records show Duff bought the property in 2004 for $3.5 million. She married former pro ice hockey player Mike Comrie in 2010.
Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland was the listing agent. David Bailey of the Bailey Group at Keller Williams in Beverly Hills represented the buyer.
