Actress and author Michele Greene has sold her longtime home in the Hollywood Dell for $931,000.
The classic Spanish-style house, built in 1923, was restored and upgraded in 2004. Once home to director King Vidor and, later, actress Helen Hayes, the residence retains coved ceilings, arches, expansive windows with original glass and a Batchelder tile fireplace.
The 1,800-square-foot house includes an eat-in kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside are two patios, rose and vegetable gardens, and a roof deck.
Greene, who had a recurring role on "Brothers and Sisters" in 2009, starred on "L.A. Law" (1986-91) and "The Unit" (2006).
As an author in the young adult market, she has published novels with HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster. Her latest is "Keep Sweet."
Greene, 49, sold to relocate and write her next novel. Her house came on the market late last year at $1.05 million.
Rose Ware and Terry Canfield Schmidt of Prudential California's Pacific Design Center office were the listing agents. Linda Morrow Hadley and James R. Hutchison of Coldwell Banker's Hancock Park north office represented the buyer.
