Celebrity couple Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann have spent $14.5 million to acquire an 8,000-square-foot penthouse tied to the late actor William Holden.

The 13-story building on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, and at one point, owned by Holden, the Los Angeles Times reported. The “Sunset Boulevard” actor also lived in one of the units until his death in 1981.

The home boasts six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There’s also a 2,300-square-foot rooftop deck with hot tub, wet bar, fireplace, media room and a gym. Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean surround the condo.

Howard Murad, a dermatologist and beauty entrepreneur, and his wife, Loralee, sold the property. They last purchased the unit for $10.5 million in 2011, property records show.

They listed the home for sale for $15 million in early October. Rochelle Maize at Nourmand & Associates had the listing.

Apatow is best known for his hit comedic films, including “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Knocked Up,” which featured his wife, Mann. She also has a leading role in “Welcome to Marwen,” which is scheduled for release later this year. [LAT]Natalie Hoberman
