Just a mere 24 hours before it was scheduled to hit the chopping block, Debbie Reynolds’ former studio found its next dancer.
The 19,000-square-foot property at 6514 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood sold Friday for $6.1 million to a local entity named Lankershim Hamlin, The Real Deal has learned. It listed for $6.15 million last month.
Reynold’s studio, along with a San Luis Obispo County ranch home, were scheduled to be auctioned Oct. 7-8 in Los Angeles as part of the Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds personal property collection at Profiles in History auction house.
The studio includes a lounge area, dressing rooms, showers and six separate rooms. It also has a large parking lot.
Michael Eisenberg of Keller Williams Beverly Hills represented the Reynolds family. Travis Zidek of Keller Williams Hollywood Hills represented the buyer.
Lankershim Hamlin, an entity tied to investor Alan Kleinman, intends to keep the dance studio remain intact until his future plans for the nearly one-acre site are finalized, Eisenberg said.
Reynolds was best known for her roles in “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” She passed away in December at 84, just one day after her daughter, “Star Wars” star Carrie Fisher, died at 60.
