Norman Lear relists Brentwood manse for $40M

“All in the Family” producer Norman Lear is taking a new approach to selling his house.

He listed the Brentwood mansion again, asking just under $40 million.

Unlike his initial $55 million ask last year — which was subsequently dropped to $49 million — the offering this time doesn’t include the three-bedroom guesthouse and sits on 8.3 acres, rather than 10 acres, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 14,000-square-foot property contains seven bedrooms, a tennis court, a screening room, staff offices and a garage that fits 28 cars. Lear’s biggest point of pride in the house, however, is his study, which is designed with cherry wood accents to look like a cigar box.

Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald of Coldwell Banker Previews International and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland have the listing.

Now 94 years old, Lear acquired the home in the late 1980s with his wife. The couple said they decided to sell in recent years because they no longer need such a large home now that their children are grown. If they don’t find an ideal property, they will move into the three-bedroom guesthouse that was for sale in the earlier listing.

“We’re very nice people,” he told the Journal. “That should be your headline — very nice people sell home in Brentwood.” [WSJ]Cathaleen Chen
