Update: Campanile Restaurant owner and chef Mark Peel has sold his Windsor Square house for $3.25 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service. It was most recently listed at $3,299,000.
Peel, who was head chef of Spago when it opened in 1982, paid about $3.1 million for the Mediterranean last year. The 1920 house had been extensively remodeled. The master bedroom suite opens to a canopied terrace, and the new garage has been plumbed for conversion to a guesthouse. The family room has many built-ins and features surround sound.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home has 3,966 square feet and a kitchen befitting a chef of Peel's caliber. Peel, cofounder of La Brea Bakery, is also the author of several cookbooks.
Daphne Brogdon, Peel's wife and co-seller of the house, hosts the TV Guide Channel's weekly series "The Fashion Team." She also created CoolMom.com.
Sue Carr of Coldwell Banker Hancock Park South office and Janet Loveland of Coldwell Banker Hancock Park North office co-listed the property. Lisa Hutchins of Coldwell Banker Hancock Park North represented the buyer.
