Actress Brynn Thayer and her husband, award-winning manager-writer-producer David Steinberg, have sold their longtime Pacific Palisades home for $2,995,000.

The 3,300-square-foot post-and-beam house, built in 1972, has four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms and sits on a heavily treed lot of about a half-acre. There are three fireplaces in the gated four-story home, which has ocean views from the master bedroom suite. Outdoors, a terrace and patios provide additional space for entertaining.

Thayer, 59, whose more recent television roles included guest appearances on "Life in General" (2008), "Without a Trace" (2008) and "Crossing Jordan" (2006), is perhaps most often associated with her long-running role as attorney and Ben Matlock daughter Leanne McIntyre on "Matlock" (1991-94).

Steinberg has been involved in the careers of talents including Robin Williams and Billy Crystal. He won a Grammy for producing the "Robin Williams Live at the Met" album. He co-wrote the Oscar telecasts hosted by Crystal and won two Emmy Awards with Crystal for the work. He was the executive producer of the golf drama "The Greatest Game Ever Played" (2005) and worked on the 1995-98 ESPY Awards.

The pair had owned the home since the mid-90s and sold because they have moved to Bel-Air.

Steven Moritz of Sotheby's International Realty, Brentwood, had the listing.
