Prolific television producer and writer Norman Lear and his wife, Lyn, have relisted their estate in Brentwood for $39.95 million, or about $15 million less than what it was listed for last year.

The home was offered last year for $55 million, but with additional acreage and a three-bedroom house not included with the current offering.

Crowning a knoll of eight-plus acres, the Lears’ home of nearly three decades includes his home office and an often-used screening room. An entry hall, a two-story library, seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and four powder rooms also lie within approximately 14,000 square feet of living space.


There are also a pair of guesthouses, office facilities, security offices, a tennis court and a gym. A large covered patio opens to a swimming pool and spa. The garage can accommodate up to 35 cars.

Views from the compound take in the cityscape, mountains and ocean.

The property previously changed hands in 1988 for $6.5 million, public records show.

The 94-year-old Lear won multiple Emmy Awards for the groundbreaking sitcom “All in the Family” and has scores of credits including “The Jeffersons,” “One Day at a Time” and “Good Times.”

Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald of Coldwell Banker Previews International and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, are the co-listing agents.
