This week in celeb real estate: Philanthropists unload mansion for $40M, Jeremy Piven lists bi-coastal properties.. And more
UPDATED on Feb. 11, 2019, at 8:42 a.m.: Aside from one pricey trade in the upscale Bel Air, this week proved to be a relatively slow week in the effervescent celebrity real estate market in Los Angeles. Actors also looked for trades in other parts of the country, such as Northern California and New York.
Philanthropist Alexandra Dwek sold her Georgian-style mansion in Bel Air for $40 million to H. Ross Perot Jr., the billionaire son of businessman and former presidential candidate Ross Perot. The Bellagio Road property which sits on 1.4 acres, is home to a 7,000-square-foot house with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Property records say it was built in 1942 and significantly renovated in 1980. The property last sold in 2011 for $16.6 million. Dwek is the founder of Friends With Causes, a network of philanthropists that hosts dinners and other events to organize donations to various causes.
After perching $2.2 million for a Laurel Canyon home in 2017, Jeremy Piven is looking to shed some of his pricier real estate holdings. The actor listed a duplex in Manhattan just a few days after selling 4,400-square-foot pad in Malibu. The oceanfront home sold for $6.6 million, nearly 40 percent less than its original asking price of $10.5 million. It includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms across three stories. In New York, the former “Entourage” star is selling a Tribeca penthouse for $7.7 million.
Also in Malibu, “Brady Bunch” star Barry Williams listed his house on the market for sale for $6.4 million. The Malibu Cove Colony, which features three bedrooms and four bathrooms, spans 2,800 square feet. It also includes expansive views of the Pacific, the Los Angeles Times reported. In addition to the hit sitcom, Williams starred in “The Brady Bunch Variety Hour,” “The Brady Girls Get Married” and “A Very Brady Christmas.”
Hollywood star Robert Redford sold his house in the wine country three months after listing it. The country house sold for $7 million, about half a million less than he and his wife, artist Sibylle Szaggars, originally asked for. Sitting atop a 10-acre spread in St. Helena, the 5,300-square-foot property includes a European style country house with a detached artist studio, workshop, outdoor patios, swimming pool and redwood hot tub. Redford is best known for “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “All the President’s Men,” and “The Natural.”
Singer Joe Jonas is looking to sell his farmhouse home in Sherman Oaks. The Jonas Brothers star is seeking $3.7 million for the pad — the same price he bought it for three years ago. Located on Ventura Boulevard, the 5,600-square-foot two-story home includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a movie theater and swimming pool, the Los Angeles Times reported.
