Comedian and talk-show host Byron Allen has sold a midcentury modern he owned in the "bird streets" area of the Hollywood Hills for $6.25 million -- after more than two years on the market.
The four-bedroom, 3 1/2 -bathroom house has a swimming pool and views of downtown L.A., Century City and the ocean through walls of glass. The one-story, 3,562-square-foot home, built in 1965 and extensively remodeled, came on the market at $6,995,000 in 2007.
Allen, 48, hosted "Comics Unleashed" from 2006 to '08. His half-hour syndicated series, "Comics Unleashed With Byron Allen," was recently picked up by MyNetworkTV. He is chairman and chief executive of Entertainment Studios. The producer, director, actor and writer hosted "The Byron Allen Show" in 1989.
The very patient listing agents were Jeeb O'Reilly and Nancie Richards of Keller Williams Realty, Beverly Hills.
