Every home is someone’s castle. But some are more regal than others. Here are a few extraordinary residential transactions our agents have been involved in recently:
Reality TV stars Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s two West Hollywood Hills homes were snapped up within two weeks of each other. The first was daughter Kelly’s 1961 contemporary, with 2,538 square feet of living space, which fetched $2 million. Next was daughter Aimee’s boxy contemporary next door, with 2,038 square feet, which went for $2.25 million. Both homes have backyard pools, spas, and two-car garages. Kirk Hoffman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ Beverly Hills office represented the buyer.
Whoever buys the top-floor penthouse at the 41-story Harbor Club in downtown San Diego also gets the keys to a custom Tesla Model S P85D, base sticker price $105,000. The owner, a tech entrepreneur, is tossing in the high-powered electric car to entice potential buyers from around the world. Asking price is $7,999,000, which includes $3 million in upgrades. The two-floor home offers 4,400 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, Inca-gold limestone flooring, hand-forged iron railings, zebra-wood cabinetry, and 360-degree views of the city. Listing agent is Gregg Neuman with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ San Diego Downtown Gaslamp office.
The former Pacific Palisades home of music producer Jerry Goldstein (“Hang on Sloopy,” “I Want Candy”) recorded a $10.4 million sale. The Cape Cod-inspired Traditional includes a theater room (of course), gym, 800-bottle wine cellar, and multiple fireplaces for those chilly Southern California nights. Seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms are spread throughout the 8,700-square-foot property on a half-acre lot. Jody Fine of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ Pacific Palisades office represented the buyer.
Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s custom-built Mediterranean home in Encino is for sale at a breathtaking $4.99 million. The gated, .42-acre property has the feel of a European hotel with a grand entrance, Hickory-wood floors, custom cabinetry, soaring ceilings, wrought-iron detailing, large entertaining rooms and dining room, and butler’s pantry. The 6,522 square feet of living space contains five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Marlene Geibelson of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ Encino office is listing agent.
