Bob Newhart just sold his house in Bel Air for $14.5 million.

Located in the neighborhood’s formidable East Gate enclave, the 1.4-acre estate had hopped on and off the market for nearly three years, Variety reported. The legendary actor and writer had bought the property in 1990 for $4.2 million.

Built in the 1940s, the French Country-style residence has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The 9,169-square-foot property features a center hall, a formal dining room, multiple fireplaces and a wet bar in the family room. The outdoor space includes a shady loggia, dining patio, swimming pool, spa and al fresco poolside cabana with a guest apartment.

Neighbors in the Platinum Triangle include Rick Hilton and local developer Beny Alagem.
