In Montecito, actor Rob Lowe and his wife Sheryl Berkoff put a 3.4-acre property on the market for $47 million. The residence, built in 2009, features a 10,000-square-foot main house with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. There’s also a guest house, pool house, koi pond and tennis court. The couple reportedly found a buyer willing to $42 million in 2013, but that deal apparently fell through. Lowe’s acting highlights include the television hit “Parks and Recreation” and cult favorite “Wayne’s World.”

The former home of Barbara Sinatra, Frank Sinatra’s late wife, hit the market this week as a $110,000-per-month rental. Located on Malibu’s highly desired Broad Beach, the 5,900-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Amenities at the property include a swimming pool, spa, wet bar, elevator, hair salon and steam room. Sinatra, who died last year, was married to the legendary singer for 22 years. She wrote a memoir, “Lady Blue Eyes: My Life with Frank,” chronicling her life with the legendary singer.

In La Crescenta, north of Glendale, Red Hot Chilli Peppers bassist Flea paid $4.25 million for a modern-style compound consisting of two separate homes. The seller were artists Lari Pittman and Roy Dowell. The older home, designed by architect Richard Neutra, features two bedrooms and one bathroom. The smaller home, designed by Michael Maltzman, has one bedroom and one-and-a-half bathrooms, Variety reported. Barry Sloane and Marc Silver at Sotheby’s International Realty represented the artist couple.

In Malibu, the former home of “The Wizard of Oz” actress Judy Garland sold for $3.5 million to television producer Cynthia Harrison-Wallach and her husband, Lewis Wallach, who heads a real estate investment firm, Professional Financial Investors. The oceanfront property, which sold off-market, features two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, the Los Angeles Times reported. The 1,800-square-foot home was originally owned by film director Vincente Minnelli, Garland’s second husband. Jory Burton and Heather Shorr, both of Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the buyers in the sale. Russell Grether and Tony Mark of Compass had the listing.
