Veteran actress and comedian Ruth Buzzi has sold her longtime Hollywood Hills home for $1,021,000 to film producer Daniel Dubiecki.
The 1937 Spanish-style house, with canyon and mountain views, sits on a cul-de-sac. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,893 square feet. There are fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, high ceilings, balconies and two decks.
The two-story home, which she had owned since 1976, came on the market at the end of December at $1.55 million.
Buzzi, 73, became a fixture on television in the late '60s with appearances on "The Monkees" (1967) and "The Steve Allen Comedy Hour" (1967) and in a part on "That Girl" (1967-68). She was in every episode of NBC's "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" (1967-73), where she honed her comedic role as a park-bench spinster, and was among many cast members to utter the line "Sock it to me." Among her more recent acting credits are the 2009 film "City of Shoulders and Noses," "Fallen Angels" (2006) and "Passions" (2003). She and husband Kent Perkins maintain a residence in Texas.
Dubiecki, 32, was executive producer of the offbeat comedy "Juno" (2007) and co-produced "Thank You for Smoking" (2005), films he worked on with Jason Reitman as part of their Hard C production company, which has since dissolved.
The listing agent was Aaron Montelongo of Sotheby's International Realty's Sunset office. Shayn Scott and Yawar Charlie of the same office represented the buyer.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
