The parade of celebrity homes was a mostly short one this week. Apart from an $11 million sale in Holmby Hills, much of the activity happened in neighboring Southern California cities.
A property rich in Hollywood history traded for $11 million this week, after first hitting the market for $17 million in 2015. A trust belonging to Margaret Black sold the Holmby Hills estate to an unknown buyer. The two-story, 8,750-square-foot property on 1.1 acres has been home to Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow, Audrey Hepburn and David Niven, and most recently, actress Eva Gabor. She lived in the Paul Williams-designed house for almost 20 years, until her death in 1995. It includes a main house with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library, and a screening room. There is a pool, a pool house, greenhouse, and a tennis court.
The former home of actor Vince Vaughn is now on the market for $6.9 million, listing brokerage Nourmand & Associates announced recently. Located in Los Feliz, the 4,000-square-foot pad has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. There’s also a swimming pool, koi pond and pool house on the grounds. The property traded last May for $3.8 million to an LLC controlled by Erica and Renny Maslow, records show. Vaughn owned the home from 1999 to 2005, until he sold it to Hollywood producer Rene Echevarria. Konstantine Valissarakos of Nourmand & Associates is sharing the listing with Richard Yohon from Sotheby’s.
Jamie Foxx’s former party pad in Tarzana is on the market for $3.3 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. Spanning 6,000 square feet, the 1-acre property features a five-bedroom residence with a massive deck, a swimming pool and a detached gym. There’s also a basketball court donning the word “Foxxhole,” the entertainer’s comedy radio channel. The actor and singer owned the home from 1997 to 2008.
Over in Palm Springs, Fuze Beverage founder Lance Collins and his wife Linda Taylor paid $12 million to acquire a new home in the gated Madison Club. Spanning 11,300 square feet, the mansion includes seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The home was built by Bob Safai, founding partners of Beverly Hills brokerage Madison Partners, Variety reported. Amenities at the lavish estate include two swimming pools, Portuguese limestone walls and palm tree-lined backyard.
Olivia Newton-John also looked a bit outside L.A. this week, listing her 12-acre spread in Santa Barbara’s Santa Ynez Valley for $5.4 million. In addition to the four-bedroom home, the property includes a swimming pool and equestrian ranch. The singer-actress bought the home for about $4.7 million in 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported.
