In Los Angeles this week, Toluca Lake took center stage with two home sales: one involved Kirsten Dunst and the other, a house formerly owned by a Disney heir. Meanwhile, a former Facebook executive listed his Silicon Valley mansion near the company’s Menlow Park HQ.

A home formerly owned by Roy E. Disney sold for $5.2 million, roughly $200,000 above asking price. Spanning 2,440 square feet, the property includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms, backyard and private boat dock. Other previous owners include horror film actor Boris Karloff and Oscar-winning composer Erich Korngold. Disney’s father — Roy Disney — co-founded Walt Disney Co. and was Walt Disney’s brother.

Nearby, actress Kirsten Dunst unloaded her home for $4.5 million after nine days on the market. The property originally listed for $4.7 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. There are five bedrooms, a patio with a pool and spa, and private dock. Dunst paid $2.6 million for the 4,333-square-foot pad.

In the exclusive Bel Air Crest neighborhood, married Olympians Gyorgy Nagy and Ildiko Szekeres spent $6.1 million to buy a 8,360-square-foot estate. The deal, which marks the most expensive home sale in the gated community so far this year, comes after the home lingered on the market for four years. Recently remodeled, the Mediterranean-style estate has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, tennis courts and swimming pool. Records show the sellers were Djahangir (John) and Victoria Charchian.

Up along the coast, a former Facebook executive listed his 13,000-square-foot mansion in Atherton for $35 million. Mike Murphy and his wife, Elaine, are selling the seven-bedroom, 11-bath mansion. It is being sold as two separate properties. The larger two-acre parcel, which includes the main house, guest house and pool, is being offered for $27 million, with the smaller one-acre plot with a tennis court listed for $8 million.
