The Pacific Palisades home of late “The Simpsons” co-creator Sam Simon has sold for $12.5 million.

Simon, a writer, director and producer, died last year aged 59. The estate first came on the market last September for $18 million, the L.A. Times reported.

The Agency’s Billy Rose and Stephen Sigoloff were the listing agents. Loraine Silver of Partners Trust Santa Monica represented the buyer.

The 1.3-acre estate comprises two homes, the smaller of which was part of the postwar Case Study Program that lasted from the 1940s through the 1960s and encouraged experimentation in residential architecture and home design, the Times noted.

The main residence , a 8,959-square-foot bungalow that was completed in 2014, has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms and is built from a number of recycled materials. It features a theater, a wet bar, a foyer with a hand-blown glass chandelier, a floating staircase and a double-height living room. Outside, there is a stone deck and an infinity pool.

During his ownership, Simon hired design firm Marmol Radziner to renovate the property. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
