Seeing green: Jane Fonda and Richard Perry seek $13 million for eco-friendly home
Music producer Richard Perry and actress Jane Fonda are readying for a scene change in Beverly Hills, listing their eco-friendly home of five years for sale at $12.999 million.
Tucked behind gates in the Trousdale Estates area, the four-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom house boasts clean lines, open-plan spaces and a glass elevator that services each floor. Beyond the eco-friendly double-glazed windows, motorized shades and bamboo floors, the home’s environmental features include photovoltaic electric panels and a solar-heated swimming pool.
Other details include an updated kitchen with bi-folding doors that open to a terrace. An adjoining breakfast area has a fireplace feature built into the window.
Downstairs: a recording studio, a media room and a diner-style wet bar. A wall of gold records pays homage to Perry’s scores of hits.
A covered patio, a meditation garden and a viewing area lie within the nearly three-quarter-acre setting. Views extend from the canyon to the ocean.
The contemporary-style home, built in 1961 and completely renovated, was previously owned by Emmy-winning television director John Rich, who died in 2012 at 86. Perry paid $7.3 million for the home that year.
Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald of Coldwell Banker Previews International hold the listing.
Fonda, 79, won Oscars in 1972 for “Klute” and in 1979 for “Coming Home.” She currently appears on the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie.”
Perry, 74, has produced albums for such stars as Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and the Pointer Sisters. He and Fonda started dating eight years ago.
It’s no Wisteria Lane
Actress and producer Eva Longoria, who gained fame on the series “Desperate Housewives,” has sold a home in Hollywood Hills for slightly more than $1.374 million.
The pink-hued Mediterranean-villa-style house sits up from the street and is entered through a gated courtyard.
Within the 2,011 square feet of living space are a formal entry, living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen and a bonus room. A circular breakfast nook adjoins the kitchen and takes in a view of the city lights through sets of arched windows.
The second-floor master suite has French doors that open to a terrace/sleeping porch. There are three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
Longoria bought the house more than a decade ago for $1.15 million, records show. Jan Horn of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent. Samanta Figure McMillin of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.
Longoria, 41, shared a pair of Screen Actors Guild Awards for “Desperate Housewives.” Her other television credits include “The Young and the Restless,” “Dragnet” and “Telenovela.”
More recently she served as an executive producer for the Lifetime series “Devious Maids.”
TV actor offers modern space
Actor Ty Burrell, who plays fictional real estate agent Phil Dunphy on the show “Modern Family,” has put his penthouse in Culver City up for sale at $1.398 million.
Found within Culver Centrale, a mixed-use development, the corner unit features custom fabric wallpaper, an updated kitchen with an island and balconies off the living room and master bedroom. Tall sliding glass doors take in city and mountain views.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master bath with his and hers vanities and a soaking tub, in 1,690 square feet of space. Two side-by-side parking spaces also come with the unit.
Whereas Dunphy might list the unit himself on the series, pocketing a nice commission/discount in the process, Burrell has tapped Redfin agent Isabel Velez to sell the property. He’s still getting a bit of a deal, though; Redfin will charge a 1.5% commission at closing, close to half the L.A.-area average.
Burrell, 49, has won a pair of Emmys for his role on “Modern Family.” His other credits include TV series “Out of Practice” and “Back to You” as well as the films “The Incredible Hulk” (2008) and “Finding Dory” (2016).
He bought the penthouse seven years ago for $865,000, records show.
Animator heads in a new direction
Film and television animation director Rich Moore, whose credits include “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Zootopia,” has bought a home in the Whitley Heights area of Hollywood Hills West for $2.11 million.
The Mediterranean-style house, built in 1998, sits in a small, gated enclave with a Moroccan-tiled swimming pool and spa, lawns and an attached two-car garage.
Inside, the 3,500 square feet of living space includes a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, a country-style kitchen, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Arched doorways, coved and beamed ceilings and hand-painted tiles are among the interior details.
Balconies off several of the bedrooms take in views of the Hollywood sign and downtown L.A.
The property was listed at $1.995 million prior to the sale, records show. It previously changed hands more than a decade ago for $1.1 million.
Tim Swan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. Michele Downing of Partners Trust Real Estate represented the buyer.
Moore, 53, won Emmy awards for his work on the animated series “The Simpsons” and “Futurama.” He is co-directing the sequel to “Wreck-It Ralph.”
Sparring for a sale in Big Bear
A Big Bear retreat where boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya and mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz once trained has sold for $1.575 million.
The wooded compound was designed by De La Hoya, who acquired the multi-parcel property in the late 1990s. The boxer eventually sold the retreat to Ortiz in 2007 for $2.1 million. More recently, the property changed hands two years ago for $1.5 million.
Surrounded by tall pines on more than an acre, the compound includes a pair of log-cabin-style homes that combine to offer five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in nearly 7,200 square feet of interior space.
Both structures feature knotty-pine paneling, stone fireplaces and antler chandeliers. Walls of windows and sets of skylights invite natural light while bringing views of the grounds inside.
Outdoors, there’s a putting green, as well as a footbridge that crosses over a running stream. A detached garage once used as a gym has parking for as many as four cars.
Robert Angilella of RE/MAX Big Bear was the listing agent. Willie Wheaton of Will Wheaton Real Estate represented the buyer.
