Celebrity television star Kelsey Grammer and his ex-wife put their home on the market, and the widow of the late television star Michael Landon sold her Malibu home this week. Music mogul Dr. Dre also put his Woodland Hills manor on the market. And for something a little different: Real estate billionaire Richard Lewis bought a very pricey condominium in Beverly West. And though it isn’t celebrity-tied — as yet — spec home developer Ardie Tavangarian sold his newly built home for $75 million. 

The former estate of actor Kelsey Grammer and his ex-wife, Camille, is back on the market for $20 million. The main home spans 6,650 square feet and includes seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a kitchen designed by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, wine cellar and two-story ballroom. Outside, the 4.8-acre grounds feature gardens, a pond, tennis court, equestrian facilities and a fruit orchard. The former couple bought the home in 1997 for $4.5 million. They sold it in 2015 for $13 million, following the divorce. 

A real estate billionaire has just bought one of the most expensive condos in L.A. Richard Lewis, president of the California division at the Lewis Group of Companies, spent $21 million for a 7,957-square-foot penthouse at the Beverly West Residences. As part of the deal, Lewis and his wife, Federica Lewis, also gave their half-floor unit at the building back to the developer, Emaar Properties. They had paid $5 million for that space in 2012. Their new pad comes fully furnished and includes three bedrooms. 

The widow of “Little House on the Prairie” star Michael Landon has sold an oceanfront home in Malibu for $15.7 million, nearly double what she paid for it four years ago. Cindy Landon listed the 6,900-square-foot home last year for $18 million. It has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, plus beach access. The buyer was a “well-known entertainer,” but her son and listing agent, Sean Landon of the Agency, declined to name the person.

Music mogul Dr. Dre has put his 16,200-square-foot residence on the market. The mansion-manor, in a gated community in Woodland Hills, is listed for $5.25 million. Dr. Dre, who famously grew up in Compton, purchased the home in 1999 — the year he released “2001” — for $2.35 million. It’s been extensively renovated since and includes eight bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a movie theater and 150-gallon fish tank.
