A onetime home of actress and singer Julie Andrews has sold in the Beverly Crest area for $5.15 million. The sellers are film producer Stacey Sher and musician Kerry Brown, who had listed the house in April for $5.795 million.
Originally designed by Wallace Neff and built in 1948, the home has since been remodeled. The 1.61-acre site includes a 7,800-square-foot main house, a 2,480-square-foot guesthouse, a separate building with a bathroom, a tennis court, a basketball court, a swimming pool and waterfalls.
The living space features beamed ceilings, stained-glass windows, brick, stonework, mahogany doors and six fireplaces. There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a screening room, a den and a gym in the main house.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom guesthouse contains living and dining rooms, a kitchen, a den, an office and recording studio space. Among artists who have recorded at the studio are Courtney Love, Ziggy Marley and the Strawberry Alarm Clock. It has also been the site of music recorded for the films "P.S. I Love You" (2007) and "Death to Smoochy" (2002).
