Tom Hanks sells Old Hollywood-vibe house in Pacific Palisades
Tom Hanks, producer, director and A-list actor, has cast off a house in Pacific Palisades for $5.025 million.
The Spanish-style villa, built in 1929, has an Old Hollywood ambiance. The interiors feature archways, frescoed ceilings, a library, a sky-lit kitchen, a sun room, a beauty salon, four bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms in 6,289 square feet of living space. The living room opens to a loggia and gardens.
The property sits behind hedges and a tall wall on nearly a third of an acre.
The house last sold for $1.9 million in 1988, according to public records.
Hanks, 57, won Oscars for his work in “Forrest Gump” (1994) and “Philadelphia” (1993) and received lead actor nominations for “Big” (1988), “Saving Private Ryan” (1998) and “Cast Away” (2000), which he also produced. Last year he starred in “Saving Mr. Banks” and “Captain Phillips.”
Hanks and wife Rita Wilson bought another Pacific Palisades estate from veteran producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall four years ago for more than $26 million. That 14,513-square-foot house, built in 1996, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Wilson, 57, appeared opposite Hanks in “Sleepless in Seattle” (1993). She has appeared on the current TV series “Girls” and “The Good Wife.” Her film work includes “Jingle All the Way” (1996), “Runaway Bride” (1999) and “It’s Complicated” (2009).
Mary Lu Tuthill and Kathleen Tuthill of Coldwell Banker’s Brentwood office were the listing agents. James Respondek of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
