Peter Facinelli, who plays doctors in the "Twilight" films and the "Nurse Jackie" television series, and his ex-wife, actress Jennie Garth, have sold their home in Toluca Lake for $3.99 million. The buyer is "The Big Bang Theory" co-creator Bill Prady.

The Paul Williams-designed traditional house, built in 1937, has a long Hollywood history. It was once the home of country singer and actor Tex Ritter and the childhood home of his son, the late actor John Ritter. Enlarged since Williams' day and renovated, the house has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 8,416 square feet of living space.

There are formal living and dining rooms, a bar room, a game room, a kitchen fireplace, dual master bedroom suites, a gym, a media room and two offices.

The gated, nearly half-acre property contains a five-car garage, an outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool.


Facinelli, 39, has played "vegan" vampire and Cullen family leader Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the "Twilight" movie series since 2008. He plays good-looking Dr. Fitch Cooper on "Nurse Jackie" (2009-present).

Garth, 41, starred on "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990-2000) and reprised her role on "90210" (2008-10). She also starred on "What I Like About You" (2002-06) and will star in the TV movie "Home Again," to air this fall.

Prady, 53, is also an executive producer for "The Big Bang Theory," which started in 2007.

Facinelli and Garth purchased the home in 2003 for $1.35 million, according to public records.

Andrew Manning of Prudential California Realty, Sherman Oaks, and Garth's mother, Carolyn Garth of Sotheby's International Realty, Los Olivos, were the listing agents. Caroline Fleck of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills South office represented the buyer.

Actors sell estate in Holmby Hills

Actors Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters have sold their latest house remodel in Holmby Hills for $24 million. The Roaring '20s Art Deco-style mansion was listed at $24.95 million.

The Reserve, which has a wine cellar, a theater, five fireplaces, six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 10,005 square feet of living space, was sold furnished and toothbrush ready. Among items included were a stocked bar and linens. The two-acre property features gates, a cobblestone driveway and a swimming pool with spa.

Renner and Winters have been buying and redoing residential properties for more than a decade. The mansion is a showcase of Winters' work, although property records show ownership was in a trust they have used jointly in the past.

The property was purchased in 2010 for $7 million, public records show.

Renner, 42, was nominated for an Oscar for his work in "The Hurt Locker" (2008) and "The Town" (2010). He starred in "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" (2011), "The Avengers" (2012) and "The Bourne Legacy" (2012). His work this year includes "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters."

Rayni Romito and Branden Williams of Hilton & Hyland/Christie's International Real Estate were the listing agents. Barry Peele and Andrew Clark of Sotheby's International Realty represented the buyer.

Tom Petty's old hangout for sale

The Encino home where Tom Petty once lived and composed songs has been put up for sale by his ex-wife, Jane Petty, at $3.575 million.

The gated estate of less than an acre features a lagoon pool and waterfall spa. The 9,076 square feet of living space includes a two-story fireplace, a media room, a loft-like gym, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

An arson fire at the home in 1987 spared Petty's basement studio, where he stored his guitars and master recordings, according to Los Angeles Times reports at the time.

Petty, 62, is the frontman for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee continues to tour with the Heartbreakers, a group formed in 1976.

Nancy Sanborn of Prudential California Realty's Beverly Hills office and Andrew Manning of the Sherman Oaks office are the listing agents.

Styx guitarist replaced by DJ

Styx guitarist and singer Tommy Shaw has sold his Hollywood Hills home to Swedish DJ Eric Prydz for $5.3 million.

The gated hilltop compound includes a two-story main house, two guesthouses, a free-form swimming pool, a cascading spa fountain and a pavilion lounge on less than an acre.

Shaw, 59, has played with the bands Damn Yankees and Shaw Blades too, as well as done solo work. Prydz, 37, also is a Los Angeles-based producer.

Rose Ware and Terry Canfield Schmidt of Prudential California Realty's Beverly Hills office were the listing agents. Marcy Soufrine of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.

On-again, off-again homeowner

Actor Dennis Quaid listed a house in Pacific Palisades at $3.15 million Aug. 15 and already has a buyer.

He purchased the remodeled contemporary home for $3.1 million earlier this year, several months after he and Kimberly Quaid filed for divorce a second time.

The 3,421-square-foot home features an open floor plan, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. There is a saltwater swimming pool, a spa and patio space.

Quaid, 59, starred this year and last in the series "Vegas." His film work includes "Pandorum" (2009), "Vantage Point" (2008) and "The Day After Tomorrow" (2004).

Dan Urbach of Prudential California Realty's Pacific Palisades office is the listing agent.
