Several new and interesting homes have come on the market recently. Here is a look at a few of what the market has to offer.
Home with Brady Bunch Connections Placed on Market
A four-bedroom home in Beverly Hills that was once owned by Sherwood Schwartz of The Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island fame has been put on the market for $11.995 million. Built in 1969 and originally designed by architects Donald Park and Wallace Benton, the single-story, flat-roofed home has been completely renovated since Schwartz called it his home.
The home was previously on the market as early as last summer, having sold for $250,000 more than the asking price at $7.2 million. Since then, the home has undergone numerous upgrades, including the addition of a glassed-in wine cellar capable of holding more than 200 bottles, oak floors and Italian marble. The master bedroom boasts an office while outdoor features include a pool, spa, fire pit and three cabanas.
Home Designed by Stephen Kanner For Sale in Pacific Palisades
A four-bedroom home designed by architect Stephen Kanner has been placed on the market for $8.2 million. Situated in the hills of Pacific Palisades, the home is conveniently located near the Pacific Coast Highway. Constructed in 2012, the 5,950-square-foot home features floor-to-ceiling glass windows, sliding doors, a sizeable home theater, a fitness room and a sunken living room. Outside features include a lap pool, a spa and a fire pit.
James G. Pulliam Home Available
Constructed in 1963, a Midcentury Modern home in the Hollywood Hills has been put on the market for $2.75 million. Situated just west of the Rose Bowl and designed by architect James G. Pulliam, who was influential in the modernist movement in California, the 3,990-square-foot home features floor-to-ceiling windows. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is situated on an elegantly landscaped half-acre lot. Other features include a wine cellar, wood paneling, a floating staircase and a two-car garage.
Playboy Mansion to be Sold to Wealthy Neighbor
Following low-ball offers made by Larry Flynt and other interested parties, the Playboy Mansion has remained on the market. According to recent reports, the mansion’s wealthy neighbor, Daren Metropoulos, is in contract to buy the property for an undisclosed amount. Metropolous reportedly purchased a home from Hugh Hefner in 2009 for $18 million and is willing to agree to the odd requirement that has been placed on the house – Hefner has to be allowed to live in the house for the rest of his days.
The mansion, which was originally built in 1927 for Arthur Letts Jr, was placed on the market for $200 million. Playboy and Hefner purchased the property in 1971 for $1.05 million, making it the largest real estate transaction in the history of the city at the time. Metropolous reportedly has plans to eventually join the two properties into one 7.3-acre compound. The 20,000-square-foot mansion has 20 rooms, 12 of which are bedrooms, and sits on 5 acres. Other features include a four-bedroom guesthouse with a solarium and a swimming pool/grotto area. The property also comes complete with a zoo permit.
