A 1937 estate in Holmby Hills owned by radio and TV host Art Linkletter in the 1950s, composer Henry Mancini in the 1990s and former Hollywood Park owner Marge Everett until 2005 has sold for $13.2 million.
The Georgian-style traditional house includes nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms in about 12,000 square feet. The gated two-story has a formal entry with a sweeping spiral staircase, a paneled library with a hidden door to the wine cellar, a 50-foot-long screening room and staff quarters. It sits on about three-quarters of an acre with a front motor court, a swimming pool, a spa and a two-bedroom guesthouse.
The 2,500-square-foot master bedroom wing contains a sitting room, his and hers bathrooms, four of the home's eight fireplaces, a sauna and a terrace overlooking the grounds.
The remodeled property originally came on the market in May 2008 at $27.5 million and previously sold in 2006 for $10.25 million, according to public records.
