The Wrap: Celebrity homes edition: Damon Wayans, Chris Hemsworth and more

Billionaire Ted Waitt's home sale made the cut

Damon Wayans Sr., the actor, comedian and member of the Wayans family troupe, just bought a 4,876-square-foot pad in Hancock Park for $5.4 million. The television star’s new abode formerly belonged to screenwriter-producer Gene Stupnitsky, known for “Bad Teacher” and the American version of “The Office.”

The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom residence includes a separate studio apartment above the two-car garage and a pool-side gym. The property was built in the 1940s. [Variety]


Meanwhile five miles north, Gateway Inc. co-founder and billionaire Ted Waitt sold one of his homes in the Bird Streets of Hollywood Hills West for $17.9 million to Latvian film producer Boris Teterev. One of the wealthiest self-made entrepreneurs in America, Waitt has another Bird Streets property in Doheny Estates, which he purchased for $20.5 million three years ago. His 6,200-square-foot new pad has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wet bar built against a large aquarium and an infinity-edge pool.[LAT]

It looks like Chris Hemsworth is getting out of L.A. for good. The actor has sold both his Point Dume pad in Malibu and his smaller Santa Monica condo — banking $7 million for the former and $1.3 for the latter. He saw a pretty hefty profit for both, having spent $4.8 for the 6,800-square-foot Malibu residence and $820,000 for other. The actor is moving back to Australia to raise his three kids. [TMZ]

In Manhattan Beach, Fox Sports’ college football analyst Joel Klatt has listed his three-bedroom home for $1.7 million. Although the 1,557-square-feet classic California-style pad doesn’t boast much space, its proximity to the beach makes up for it. [Realtor] — Cathaleen Chen
