Silver Lining to Goldie's Deal


GOLDIE HAWN, who plays a divorced mother/waitress/stripper in the movie "Crisscross," released earlier this month, has sold her Pacific Palisades home of quite a few years for about $2.5 million in cash.

Hawn also co-stars with Steve Martin in the upcoming film "Housesitter," due out in June.

Hawn, 46, gained fame in 1968 as the giggling airhead on TV's "Laugh In." She went on to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in the 1969 film "Cactus Flower" and then starred in "Butterflies Are Free" (1971), "Foul Play" (1978) and "Private Benjamin" (1980).

Last year she signed a $30-million, seven-picture deal with Disney.

She has lived with actor Kurt Russell since they appeared together in the 1983 comedy-drama "Swing Shift." They co-starred in "Overboard" (1987) after having a child together in 1986. Divorced twice, Hawn has two other children at home, by her second marriage to Bill Hudson of the Hudson Brothers comedy group.

Hawn and her family had outgrown the home she just sold, a source said.

The gated home has five bedrooms including maid's quarters and a master suite with an exercise room and a study, all in about 6,000 square feet, overlooking the ocean and the golf course of the Riviera Country Club.

Hawn bought a lot in the Palisades a couple of years ago and had a 10,000-square-foot home built there. She also has homes on Broad Beach in Malibu and in Old Snowmass, Colo., sources say.

Hawn's former Palisades home had been listed by Bonnie Black and Joyce Rey of Prudential Rodeo Realty. Neither was available for comment.

A Bel-Air home--owned at various times by Hustler publisher LARRY FLYNT, Sonny and Cher, and Tony Curtis--has been been purchased by a candy manufacturer for a bit less than $10 million.

The 12,000-square-foot Italian villa, on an acre, was built in the 1920s but has been refurbished many times.

It has four bedrooms, servants' quarters, a projection room and guest apartment. It also has an elevator; koi pond with a waterfall, and poolside surfaces that are heated so a swimmer's feet don't get cold.

It had been listed by Victoria Lockwood of Alvarez, Hyland & Young.

The price on country singer GLEN CAMPBELL'S former Hollywood Hills estate has been cut by nearly $3.5 million to $6.49 million.

Owned by the singer's ex-wife B. J. Campbell, the nine-bedroom, 11-bath home was designed and built by the couple about 20 years ago, shortly before they were divorced.

On nearly seven acres overlooking Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley, the contemporary, ranch-style home has tennis and volleyball courts, a putting green, vegetable gardens, a free-form swimming pool and spa, projection room, wine-tasting room and wine cellar.

The gated property also has a long private drive and parking for 40 cars.

"She is selling because her three children are grown now . . . and a 15,000-square-foot home is a bit too much house for her," said Elaine Spratt of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills office. Spratt shares the listing with Cookie Wilson MacKenzie (Flip Wilson's ex-wife) of Coldwell Banker, Simi Valley.

Glen Campbell lives in Phoenix with his fourth wife and their three children.

B. J. Campbell is a co-founder of LADIES (Life After Divorce Is Eventually Sane, a group of celebrities' ex-wives).

The Beverly Hills home of the the late EARL SCHEIB, the king of low-cost auto painting, has come on the market at $5.95 million.

Scheib, who died in February, has been described as "an icon of Southern California's car culture" because of the late-night TV commercials in which he promised to paint cars at rock-bottom prices. He had a chain of more than 200 paint shops in about 40 states.

His house was built in 1951, but he had rebuilt and redecorated it a couple of years ago. Scheib had owned the home since 1964.

The main house has three bedrooms, and there are also two guest houses on the 1.4-acre property, north of Sunset Boulevard. The master suite has a lanai overlooking the pool, hot house and gardens.

Scheib's wife died in 1984. The couple had three sons.

Ruth Hoffman of Mike Silverman & Associates has the listing.

VINCENT KLYN, who co-starred in the movies "Cyborg" (1989) and "Point Break" (1991), has purchased his first home--a four-bedroom contemporary with an ocean view in Malibu--for nearly its asking price of $599,000.

The Hawaiian-raised Klyn is an avid surfer and outdoorsman.

Allen Sarlo of Jon Douglas Co.'s Marina del Rey office represented Klyn, and Sara Grisanti of the firm's Malibu office had the listing.
