The multi-level house, designed by architect Ken Ungar, sits on a leafy corner lot where actor Anthony LaPaglia previously lived.

The new home was completed this year.

The purchase, made through a limited liability company, isn’t Westbrook’s first foray into L.A.’s Westside. Three years ago he made a splash in Beverly Crest, buying a renovated and expanded home from reality TV personality Scott Disick for $4.65 million.
