Update: A childhood home of Oscar-winning actress and singer Judy Garland, who played Dorothy in the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz," has sold in Bel-Air for $5.2 million.
The 1938 two-story house, with dormer windows and white columns set against a red-brick clad veranda, was designed by Wallace Neff. It went into escrow a week after coming on the market at $5.5 million and closed in two weeks.
On more than 21/2 acres, the 5,500-square-foot house has five bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms. A swimming pool, cabanas and a writer's cottage sit in the backyard.
Hugh Evans of Partners Trust, Brentwood, and Cory Weiss of Partners Trust, Beverly Hills, were the listing agents. Evans also represented the buyer.
