Talent scouting powerhouse Kevin Huvane sold his Beverly Hills abode for $5.2 million Tuesday, just days after it hit the market for $4.95 million.

The buyer is a real estate attorney from Bel Air and his family, buyer’s broker Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates told The Real Deal.

The traditional-style residence sits on Ambassador Avenue — a quiet stretch of north of Sunset. It spans 4,139 square feet and contains four bedrooms and four bathrooms. 

“Houses like this don’t come in often at a relatively low price,” Maize said. “When they do, they’re gone very quickly.”

Huvane — who claimed to have felt, as a 16-year-old in the 1970s, Meryl Streep’s greatness when he saw her in Shakespeare in the Park — is the managing partner of the Creative Artists Agency. His rolodex of clients include the likes of Brad Pitt, Halle Berry and yes — Streep herself. He acquired the house in 1988 for $1.65 million, according to property records.

The listing agent was Ed Fitz from The Agency.
