It was a listing affair this week in the world of celebrity real estate.
In classic 90210 fashion, Ann Rutherford’s former estate, known as the Rutherford House for its longtime resident, hit the market with a hefty $39.9 million price tag. The property — originally built for former Mayor Edward Dentzel — spans 10,400 square feet and comes equipped with five bedrooms, ten bathrooms and a billiards room. Chinese wallpaper dating back 200 years lines the breakfast room. Mortgage millionaire Mark Cohen and his wife bought the property in 2013, and renovated it to its current state. Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency shares the trophy piece with Linda May and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland.
Know any music lovers with cash on hand? A home fitted with a full recording studio, owned by world-travelling DJ and producer Steve Angello, listed this week for $5.5 million. The former Swedish House Mafia member purchased the 6,000-square-foot pad in the Hollywood Hills for $3.9 million. Four bedrooms, five bathrooms and swimming pool grace the property. Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland has the listing.
Nearby in the hipster hills of Los Feliz, actress Connie Britton recovered from the death of her “Nashville” character with the purchase of a Paul Williams-designed, ivy-covered villa for $3.1 million. The 1926-built home features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, fruit trees and a swimming pool. Before heading to Tennessee, Britton was known as the iconic “Tami Taylor” from “Friday Night Lights” and for her role in cult classic “American Horror Story.” Roberta Collins of Keller Williams and John Galich of Rodeo Realty brokered the sale.
Meanwhile, Restoration Hardware exec Gary Friedman — known for schmoozing with celebs from Ashton Kusher to Gwyneth Paltrow — nabbed some extra pocket money from the sale of his well-decorated estate. The interior design guru sold his home on N. Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills for $11.33 million. Kurt Rappaport (once again) had that one.
Up in the Valley, actress and model Denise Richards seems to be stuck in the doghouse (literally). The animal rights lover-turned-advocate put her home back on the market for just under $6 million — the third price chop the home has seen in just over two years, the Los Angeles Times reported. The 8,300-square-foot pad includes a lagoon-style pool, grotto and a dog hotel with a built-in kennel and washing station. Dog lovers can contact Mark and Rory Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway for that one.
