A private equity executive purchased a Holmby Hills estate which was owned by former movie studio executive Brad Grey for $68.8 million.

Bruce Karsh, co-founder of Los Angeles-based Oaktree Capital Management, acquired the five-bedroom home. It hit the market at $77.5 million in February.

The Howard Backen-designed residence on Carolwood Drive has two kitchens, a gym, swimming pool with hot tub and Pilates studio, Mansion Global reported. It was completed in 2016, a year before Grey, a former Paramount Pictures chairman, died of cancer.

Stephen Shapiro of Westside Estate Agency and Linda May of Hilton & Hyland shared the listing. May also represented the buyer.

Grey and his wife, Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, bought the property through a trust in 2010 for $18.5 million, property records show. After a few unsuccessful attempts at flipping, they ultimately decided to build on the land instead.

Karsh and his wife, Martha, an attorney and business owner, also own a property in Brentwood, purchased from Karsh’s business partner Howard Marks, for over $33 million. [MG] — Natalie Hoberman
