Neve Campbell, who stars in the Robert Altman-directed ballet film "The Company," has put her Brentwood home on the market at just under $3.7 million. She's moving because the house is larger than her needs.
It is Cape Cod-style and has four bedrooms plus a den and 6 1/2 bathrooms in about 5,500 square feet. The home is on nearly 1 1/2 acres with ocean, canyon and city views.
Situated behind gates, the house, built in the '40s, also has a brick-enclosed sunroom, a media room and a dance studio with a bath. The grounds have a pool, spa and motor court.
Campbell has owned the home for about five years. Before listing it, she was considering moving to New York. The actress, 30, is from Canada.
She co-starred on the TV series "Party of Five" (Fox, 1994-2000) and in such movies as the "Scream" trilogy (1996, 1997, 2000) and "Wild Things" (1998).
Before coming to Hollywood, she planned to become a classical ballet dancer. That led her to star in and produce "The Company," a collage of stories about a ballet troupe. The Robert Altman film was made with the cooperation of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago. It had a limited release on Christmas Day and opened in general release this weekend.
Susan Gitlin of Prudential John Aaroe, Brentwood, and Brad Rubin of the firm's Sherman Oaks office have the listing.
The going rate for legend and lore
Pickfair, the legendary honeymoon home of actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, has come on the market at $39.5 million. Current owners businessman Meshulam Riklis and actress Pia Zadora rebuilt most of the Beverly Hills estate after they bought it in 1988 for just under $7 million from L.A. Laker owner Jerry Buss. It is on 2 1/4 acres.
Pickford had subdivided the original 15-acre estate over the years, and her last husband, the late actor Buddy Rogers, further reduced the size of the property when he sold the house to Buss for $5.4 million after the actress died in 1979.
Riklis oversaw a major refurbishing and expansion, keeping as much as he could from the Pickford-Fairbanks days during Hollywood's golden era. After architect Wallace Neff redesigned a hunting lodge to become Pickfair in 1932, the famous couple entertained royally and royalty, creating a suite -- still there -- for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
Riklis also preserved a pub room and its original bar, where Fairbanks hoisted a few.
The 26,000-square-foot home has a ballroom-sized living room, a disco, a film theater, a master suite plus four family bedroom suites, a small theater with a stage, a three-bedroom apartment, a staff wing with offices, a guesthouse, a pool, four two-car garages and subterranean parking for 10 cars.
Barbara Duskin of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills North, has the listing.
A Duck to water in Newport Beach
Jean-Sebastien Giguere, goaltender with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, has purchased a home in Newport Beach for close to $2 million.
The Canadian goalie, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy last year as the playoffs' most valuable player even though his team lost in the Stanley Cup finals, bought a newly built house with five bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in about 4,500 square feet.
The Mediterranean-style home features some built-in, wood-carved furnishings. The house also has a courtyard with fountains.
After the Stanley Cup finals last year, the Ducks re-signed Giguere, 26, in a deal worth nearly $5 million a year for four years. He had earned $900,000 the previous season.
Keith Randle and Rich Meaney at Strada Properties in Newport Beach had the listing on the house Giguere purchased, sources said.
Second chance to live like a prince
A Beverly Hills-area home extensively renovated in the 1990s by former owner Prince Jefri Bolkiah, brother of the sultan of Brunei, has come on the market again at $19.5 million.
The businessman who now owns the estate listed it at the same price in 2002, but then took it off the market for a number of months.
The 20,000-square-foot home, on a 2-plus-acre promontory with city-to-ocean views, has 11 bedroom suites, including two masters and a five-bedroom guesthouse.
The residence also has a media room, office, grand entry, two waterfalls, a meditation area, pool and spa.
The prince gutted the home, originally built in 1982, and replaced the interiors with marble marquetry and exotic woods. He left it up to the businessman, however, to finish the job.
Elaine Young and Gail Landry of Century 21, Elaine Young Real Estate in Beverly Hills share the listing with Jeannie Valvo at Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills.
Net exec wired into Griffith estate
Marco Pennette, producer of such TV series as "All About the Andersons" and "I'm With Her," and his partner, producer Steven Rabiner, have sold the Griffith family estate for close to its $3.2-million asking price.
The walled and gated compound, on the edge of Griffith Park, was built about 1925 for Van Griffith, son of Col. Griffith J. Griffith, who gave the city more than 200 acres of land for Griffith Park. Van Griffith was one of the early presidents of the Los Feliz Improvement Assn.
The Mediterranean-style home, on nearly an acre, includes a main house, a carriage house and a pool with a large entertainment area.
The buyer is a principal of a Chicago-based Internet company. Pennette also was a producer and creator of the '90s sitcom "Caroline in the City."
Chris Laib and Ron McGee, both of Prudential John Aaroe in Los Feliz, had the listing. Bennett Carr, of the firm's Beverly Hills office, represented the buyer.
