Now found in West Hollywood
When Harold Perrineau’s character, Michael, sailed off in last season’s finale of “Lost,” the actor knew it was time to leave Hawaii, where the hit ABC series is filmed.
So Perrineau and his wife, actress-model Brittany Robinson Perrineau, purchased a home in West Hollywood for close to its $2.4-million asking price.
Their mainland residence has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There is a main house and a detached, two-story guesthouse. The Spanish-style compound, built in 1929, has city views. It also has open-beam trusses, a formal dining room, a family room/media area, and an outdoor entertainment area with a pool and spa.
Perrineau, 38, played Augustus Hill in “Oz,” Mercutio in Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of “Romeo + Juliet” and Link in “The Matrix Reloaded.” Brittany Perrineau played one of Sawyer’s (Josh Holloway) girlfriends in an episode of “Lost.”
Darren Winston of Coldwell Banker, Sunset, had the listing; Tom Scrocco and Randy Isaacs, of the same office, represented the buyers.
Enough bang-bang for model’s bucks?
Leave it to a supermodel-actress to pay one of the highest prices anyone can remember for a home in Topanga Canyon.
Angela Lindvall, 27, has earned the distinction with her purchase of a 7 1/2 -acre equestrian-zoned property for $4,550,000.
What she gets for that sum is a main house with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a media room, plus a detached guesthouse with two one-bedroom apartments, each with a living room, kitchen and private deck. The 5,400-square-foot, Mediterranean-style compound, built in 1975, also has a pool, horse barn, corrals, riding ring and maid’s quarters.
The property has some entertainment industry neighbors -- actor Rick Schroder and his wife, Andrea, and jazz bassist Stanley Clarke.
Lindvall purchased the house from cinematographer Thomas Kloss and his wife, Ina. Kloss has shot numerous videos for such artists as Will Smith, Madonna, Faith Hill and Jennifer Lopez. He also works on commercials and has had many assignments in Europe. The Klosses, both from Austria, hope to spend more time there and plan to keep a smaller home in the Topanga area.
Lindvall was discovered by a scout while she was modeling in a Midwest fashion show at age 14. She has appeared in print ads for Chanel and Gucci, posed for the covers of Vogue and Elle magazines and appeared with Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer in two films. She appeared in the films “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” “DKNY Road Stories,” “New York Stories” and “CQ.”
Sarah Pearson of Elite Properties represented Lindvall in her home purchase; Gary Harryman and Mariline Feron of Pritchett-Rapf & Associates, Malibu, represented the sellers.
Hockey goalie makes his move
Steve Shields, a professional hockey player, has put his Manhattan Beach town house on the market at about $1.8 million. The town home sits seven houses from the sand and has ocean views.
The unit, built in 2001, has three bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, double-paned windows, surround sound, a two-car garage, covered guest parking and an outdoor shower, for use when returning from the beach. It also has bamboo floors, a balcony and a deck.
Shields, 34, is a 6-foot-3, 215-pound goalie who was signed as a free agent by the Chicago Wolves in 2005. He played earlier for the Boston Bruins, who signed him to a two-year deal for a base salary of $1.2 million. This year, he underwent knee surgery, keeping him out of the lineup, although he was signed by the Atlanta Thrashers in October.
Pam Smith of South Bay Brokers, Manhattan Beach, has the listing.
Announcing a change of address
Jimmy Hodson, a movie trailer and TV promo voice-over actor, and his wife, Sonya Dunn Hodson, have sold their Mediterranean-style Pacific Palisades home for its $2.3-million asking price.
The Hodsons bought the home in 1999 from TV’s “Bionic Woman,” Lindsay Wagner. The previous owner was a member of Herb Alpert’s family, which remodeled the house, adding the second story in the early 1990s. The house was built in 1929.
The Hodsons have moved to a gated community in Westlake Village, where they bought a five-bedroom, 4,600-square-foot house with room for Jimmy Hodson’s home recording studio. The house, built by Vintage homes in 2003, sold for about $2.1 million.
Susan Wales of Palisades Realty represented the Hodsons in their real estate transactions; Minoo Asgary of Re/Max on the Boulevard, Westlake Village, had the listing there.
