New director at Oscar winner's home
Update: A Brentwood home designed by Roland Coate for Academy Award-winning director William A. Wellman has sold for $7.5 million. The Connecticut farmhouse-style compound had come on the market in February at $10 million.
Reached by a long driveway that created the feel of a country lane, the two-story house sits on 3 acres of meadows and woods with a pool, a pool house, a putting green, a horse corral and walking paths. The compound, built in 1942, was the scene of parties and family gatherings. There are seven bedrooms and 91/2 bathrooms in 6,295 square feet of living space.
Wellman, who died in 1975 at age 79, directed the silent film "Wings" (1927), which won the first best picture Oscar. He won a best original story Oscar for "A Star is Born" (1937).
Mary Lu Tuthill and Kathleen Tuthill of Coldwell Banker, Brentwood, had the listing. Kathleen Tuthill represented the buyer.
