The famous “Mommie Dearest” property in Holmby Hills has found a new family.

While the 6,055-square-foot home was reported to be under contract earlier this month, the final sale price just recorded at  $18.8 million —  about half of the original listing price of $35 million.

The property was the onetime home of Hollywood filmmaker Allan Dwan, who made more than 400 movies during his career including classics such as “Robin Hood” and “Heidi”, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The six-bedroom, five-bathroom home was first listed at $35 million in the summer of 2016 but subsequently chopped down to $19.9 million last month.

It was made famous by appearing in the classic film “Mommie Dearest,” a biographical depiction of Christina Crawford’s childhood with her allegedly abusive adoptive mother, Joan Crawford.

The pool and an adjacent pool house were used in the film.

Scenes from the TV show “Beverly Hills, 90210” were also shot on the property.

Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker and Sally Forster Jones of John Aaroe Group had the listing. David Parnes and James Harris of the Agency represented the buyer. [LAT]Subrina Hudson
