Tug the Ear and Off to Santa Fe


The Holmby Hills home was bought by a local businessman who plans to refurbish it and live there with his family, sources say. The 7,500-square-foot English Country-style house was built in the 1920s by Broadway and Bullock's department store founder Arthur Letts for his sister. Letts had built himself a nearby house, now the Playboy Mansion. Hazen had owned her house, on 2.3 acres along a fairway of the Los Angeles Country Club, for 30 years.

Raymond Bekeris of John Bruce Nelson & Associates represented the buyer; Bruce Nelson, of the same firm, and Beth Styne, of the Prudential-Douglas Co. in Beverly Hills, represented the seller.

The house he bought has four bedrooms, maid's quarters and a guest house in 6,000 square feet. The gated Mediterranean-style home was built in 1988.
