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).

Sher, who turns 50 Nov. 30, is working on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." Her production credits include "Pulp Fiction" (1994), "Erin Brockovich" (2000) — for which she shared an Oscar nomination — and the series "Reno 911!" (2004-09).

Kerry, who turns 49 Dec. 5, has played drums with the groups Catherine, the Smashing Pumpkins and Spirits in the Sky. His music editor and production credits include "Along Came Polly" (2004) and the series "Jessica Simpson: The Price of Beauty" (2010).

Rick Chimienti of Prudential's Beverly Hills office was the listing agent. Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills South office represented the buyer.
