Alan Thicke seeks a buyer (or renter) for Toluca Lake estate

Actor-composer Alan Thicke and his actress wife, Tanya, have listed their Toluca Lake compound for sale at $4.8 million or for lease at $13,500 a month, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

The Spanish Colonial, built in 1934, sits behind gates on a flat acre lot with a north-south lighted tennis court, an outdoor entertaining area and a swimming pool with a poolside kitchen and covered eating area. The living and media room has a carved wood-beam ceiling and a fireplace.

The master bedroom suite features a spa tub, a sauna, a balcony, a fireplace, a study and walk-in closets. The 8,656-square-foot house has five more bedrooms and six bathrooms, plus a second kitchen in a guest suite, another office and a gym.

Thicke, 63, bought the property in 1986 for $627,500, according to public records. Since playing patriarch Jason Seaver on "Growing Pains" (1985-92), he has appeared on "The Bold and the Beautiful" (2006-09) and in "RoboDoc" (2009). His compositions include theme songs for "Wheel of Fortune" (1975-83), "Diff'rent Strokes" (1978-86) and "The Facts of Life" (1979-88). He will make a guest appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" on Wednesday.

Laurence Young of Prudential California Realty, Beverly Hills, and Bill Taylor of Prudential, Encino, are the listing agents.
