CAROL BURNETT, who stars in NBC's weekly comedy anthology "Carol & Company," is having a home built for herself, a few doors down from her current residence in Century City.
Burnett, whose variety series "The Carol Burnett Show" aired from 1967 to 1979, appeared in the movies "Annie," "The Four Seasons" and "Pete 'n' Tillie." Her published memoirs "One More Time" are being developed into a movie script.
Her new home, worth in the $3-million range, is expected to be ready for occupancy in January or February, sources say.
It will be a 5,800-square-foot townhouse with three bedrooms, five full baths and two powder rooms. The master suite will be 1,630 square feet in size and have his-and-her baths.
There also will be a library and a study with a bath in the two-story, hacienda-style unit, which is being built around a central courtyard and will have wood exposed beams and a large veranda.
The actress/comedian will move from her 5,500-square-foot detached condo, which she bought two years ago for about $2 million. It was a model in the same project as her new home, the gated Century Woods Estates, developed by Watt Luxury Housing.
Burnett's new home is in the newest and final phase of the 13.5-acre project, which began with 48 condos in 1982.
There will be 35 homes in the last phase, all designed around private courtyards, said Herbert Schulman, director of sales. Schulman would not discuss Burnett's purchase or those of 23 other buyers but noted that the sales price averages $3 million.
ROBERT BOYETT--co-producer with Tom Miller of the ABC sitcoms "Full House," "The Hogan Family" and "Perfect Strangers"--is paying $3.5 million to $4 million for a 7,000-square-foot unit across the street from Burnett's, other sources said.
And TED MANN, of the Mann's theater chain, and his wife, actress RHONDA FLEMING, have bought two lots in the new section, for construction of a townhouse and a private pool, the sources added. The Manns have owned two condos at Century Woods for some time.
ALAN MARSHALL, British producer of the new movie "Jacob's Ladder," and his wife, Carol, have been living in hotels when they've been in Los Angeles, but they wanted some roots here, so they just paid about $1 million for a house on a quiet, tree-lined street in Beverly Hills, sources say.
Their new home has four bedrooms and three baths in about 3,000 square feet.
Built in the '20s or '30s, the house is Country English in style and has a swimming pool. She liked the quaint look of the home because she is an antique collector, sources said.
Marshall wanted to buy a home here because he plans to make more movies here, the sources added. Besides "Jacob's Ladder," he produced the movies "Midnight Express," "Fame" and "Angel Heart."
The Marshalls also have homes in Spain and England.
Gloria Jennings and Mark Hess of Fred Sands' Beverly Center office represented the Marshalls in the purchase.
Dethroned real estate king MIKE GLICKMAN'S Encino mansion has a court-accepted bid on it, subject to his creditors' approval, of $2.4 million.
The most recent asking price was $2,495,000, reduced from $2,995,000.
Insurance executive Ron Katz and his wife, Doris, made the bid, according to public records. During the next three weeks, Glickman's creditors will be notified of the offer, and if there are no overbids, the deal is expected to be completed.
The mansion was listed in June when Glickman, then the San Fernando Valley's biggest real estate broker, filed for personal and corporate bankruptcy liquidation.
His mansion is a 10,000-square-footer behind gates with four bedrooms plus maid's quarters, a pink exterior, marble interior, spas, saunas, a pool, pool house, tennis court and ballroom-size living room.
Michael McCall of White House Properties, Woodland Hills, has the listing, and Alfie and Myrna Shanfeld of Jon Douglas Co.'s Encino office represent the Katzes.
A champagne reception last week marked the first official public showing of a new Beverly Hills mansion that's on the market at $33 million and has a dining room that will comfortably seat 50 over a glass floor looking down into an indoor swimming pool.
"It's now finished enough to see the grandioseness of it," said Dale Meyerhoff, who shares the listing with Sonia Demerdjian and Val Safarik of Prudential Rodeo Realty.
The 40,000-square-foot house, which overlooks Coldwater Canyon Park, has a disco, library, staff quarters, two gyms, steam rooms and spas.
The home also has a two-lane bowling alley, which Meyerhoff says is "the only two-lane one in Beverly Hills that is certified for tournament play;" a north/south tennis court and a motor court with space for 50 parked cars.
Called "The Crown of Beverly Hills," the house is owned by commercial builder/developer ALEXANDER COLER, 77, who was quoted a year ago as saying, "The architect (Alec Dugally) who designed this house thought this would be a nice crowning point to my career."
Coler was a partner of C-D Investment Co., once one of the state's largest commercial developers. Among the properties that C-D owned and developed were the Anaheim Hilton Hotel and the Beaudry Center, two high-rise office buildings at 3rd Street along the Harbor Freeway.
Naftali Deutsch, the other C-D partner, also built an imposing house, the same size, next door to Coler's. That house was completed a couple of years ago.
