Actor Christopher Lloyd sells Montecito home

Actor Christopher Lloyd, known to moviegoers as quirky scientist Dr. Emmett Brown in the “Back to the Future” sci-fi trilogy, has sold his house in Montecito for $5.1 million.

Lloyd built the Umbria-inspired home after the house he had on the 5-acre site was destroyed in a 2008 wildfire. The single-level house, which has ocean and mountain views, features a double-island kitchen, four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and 4,600 square feet of living space. There is a swimming pool, a spa, gardens, fountains, an expansive lawn and a boccie ball court.

The Emmy winner, 74, played driver Jim Ignatowski in the sitcom “Taxi” (1978-83) and Uncle Fester in the “Addams Family” movies. He starred last year in the films “Excuse Me for Living” and “Dorothy and the Witches of Oz.”

Lisa Loiacono of Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent.
