Update: Emmy-winning composer Lee Holdridge, whose four decades of credits include such early work as collaborating on the score of the 1973 movie "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," has sold his Beverly Hills home for $2,175,000.
The English Tudor-style house, built in 1926, retains much of its '20s ambience with a turret-like brick entry, a circular stairway off the foyer, hardwood floors on the ground floor and two fireplaces. The two-story home, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 4,774 square feet, has a swimming pool. The living room, where Holdridge played his grand piano, overlooks the backyard.
The composer, 65, is downsizing to a contemporary rental in Brentwood with studio space.
He has been involved in TV shows and films including "Brothers at War" (2009), "I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life & Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal" (2007), "Splash" (1984) and "Mr. Mom" (1983). His Emmys include honors for his work on "One Life to Live" in 2005 and 2000 and "Beauty and the Beast" (1987).
The property, which Holdridge had owned for two decades, came on the market in late September at $3.2 million.
The listing agents were Gracee Arthur of Ewing & Associates, Sotheby's International Realty, and David Findley, then with Sotheby's International Realty, Brentwood, but now associated with Partners Trust Real Estate Brokerage & Acquisitions, Brentwood.
