Celebrities yearning for a taste of early Hollywood glam turned to Santa Monica this week, picking up homes with ties to late actor William Holden and film star Kathryn Grayson. On the Eastside, an architecturally significant property and a home owned by actress Kirstie Alley came on the market.

Film producer Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann paid $14.5 million to acquire an 8,000-square-foot penthouse on Ocean Avenue. The unit lies in a 13-story building designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, and at one point, owned by Holden, who starred in “Sunset Boulevard.” The home boasts six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a 2,300-square-foot rooftop deck with hot tub, wet bar, fireplace, media room and gym. Skin entrepreneur Howard Murad and his wife, Loralee, sold the property. They last purchased the unit for $10.5 million in 2011.

Also in Santa Monica, a residence dubbed the “House of Rock” traded for $16 million. Personal injury lawyer and developer Otto L. Haselhoff bought the 11,000-square-foot home, built in 1926 for early film star Grayson. Elaine Culotti, the seller, bought the property in 2010 and later completed a full renovation. She included a state-of-the-art recording studio in the overhaul. The house earned the nickname “House of Rock” for the extravagant parties hosted at the site, often featuring musical performances.

Farther east, actress Kirstie Alley is shopping her Los Feliz home for $11.9 million. The one-acre estate includes six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a music room and library. Outside, a swimming pool and pool house complement the 8,620-square-foot home. Konstantine Valissarakos at Nourmand & Associates has the listing. Alley purchased the home for nearly $3 million in September 2000, property records show. The actress and spokesmodel is best known for her roles in “Cheers,” “Veronica’s Closet,” and “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.”

Also in Los Feliz, an architecturally significant home designed by Lloyd Wright — Frank Lloyd Wright’s son — hit the market for $4.3 million this week. That’s the same price it was being marketed for two years ago. The Mayan Revival-style property, dubbed Samuel-Navarro House, includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms within 2,700 square feet of space. Early film star Ramon Novarro and actress Diane Keaton both previously owned the home.
