Comedian and actor Richard Lewis has closed the door on his longtime home in Hollywood Hills West, selling the 1920s Mediterranean for $1.354 million.

The house has a long history of celebrity owners and tenants. Actor-singer Eddie Albert, actor-dancer Gene Nelson and prolific voice-over actor Charles Judels are among the notable residents to have lived in the house.

Lewis had owned the home since 1989, when he paid $720,000 for it, public records show.


The 2,508 square feet of white-walled living space includes a step-down living room with fireplace, a dining room and an updated kitchen. Glass doors off the living room area open to a canopy-topped patio. Another balcony with a fireplace sits off the media room.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master suite with a reading nook and a separate office. Views take in the surrounding treetops and city lights.

Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents. Ryan Grossman of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

The 69-year-old Lewis is known for his appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman” and the HBO sitcom “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” His film credits include the 1993 comedy “Robin Hood: Men in Tights.”
