Actor Larry Hagman’s top-floor penthouse in Santa Monica has sold for $5 million. It was listed at the beginning of the year at $5.2 million.

The two-bedroom, three-bathroom pied-a-terre is in a 10-story building constructed in 1963 and includes 3,029 square feet of living space. The contemporary-style condo has three parking spaces and views of the ocean. Amenities include 24-hour security, a swimming pool and a gym.

Hagman, who died last year at 81, entertained generations of television viewers on “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-70) and “Dallas” (1978-91). He reprised his role as J.R. Ewing on the current TNT series.

The property last changed hands in 1996 for $1.45 million, public records show.


A sale is pending on the actor’s off-the-grid estate in Ojai. Priced at $6.495 million, the 43-acre mountaintop spread was listed at $11 million in 2009. The compound includes a guesthouse, a separate office, a swimming pool connected to two ponds, a helipad and an avocado grove.

Set behind iron gates, the 17,516-square-foot main house features murals, an indoor pool and spa, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

David Solomon and Anna Solomon of Prudential’s Brentwood office were the listing agents for the Santa Monica penthouse. Michael Caruso of Surterre Properties represented the buyer.

Andrea Cope of Prudential’s Brentwood office has the Ojai listing.
