TV writers sell onetime haunt of Katharine Hepburn, Boris Karloff

“Joey” creators Scott Silveri and his wife, Shana Goldberg-Meehan, have sold a Beverly Crest home with its own storyline for $7.4 million.

The history-rich property, which has been owned and occupied by such acting greats as Katharine Hepburn and Boris Karloff, came on the market last month at $7.395 million. Hepburn, who won Oscars for four movies including “On Golden Pond,” lived in the house before it was purchased by Karloff, known for his portrayal of the monster in the 1930s “Frankenstein” films.

Eric Burdon of ’60s rock band “The Animals” later lived in the home.


The 1927 Hacienda-style house has white masonry walls, tile floors, colorful tile accents and beamed ceilings. There are fireplaces in the dining, living and family rooms as well as the library and master bedroom.

A den, a bar, an office, a wine cellar, five bedrooms and six bathrooms are also within the 4,984 square feet of interiors.

The one-acre site, in the Coldwater Canyon area, includes patios, a courtyard with a pizza oven and a swimming pool.

Edward Fitz of The Agency was the listing agent. Kennon Earl of Keller Williams represented the buyer.
