Cuba Gooding Jr. has sold his house in Pacific Palisades for $9,828,300. Yes, yes, someone showed him the money, to borrow his line from “Jerry Maguire.” The nearly one acre of grounds is set up for family fun. A sunken trampoline -- think user safety -- sits in the lawn, there's a swimming pool and the sports court can double as a lighted roller hockey rink or a basketball court. The contemporary English-style two-story house features French doors, five fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a media room, seven bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar and upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms - another great idea.

Joining this spring's bumper crop of L.A.-area mega estates for sale is Liongate, entering the fray priced at $65 million. Other Westside contenders include the $135-million Beverly House, Jamie McCourt's $55-million home and Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's $50-million moated residence. Although two lion statues still stand at one of the gates, the reworked 1938 mansion in Bel-Air has dropped the plural from its former Lionsgate name. Singer Kenny Rogers, who sold the estate in 1983 for $5.8 million, is credited with placing the lions outside the gate.

The first time Jack Latner's Hollywood Hills house was remodeled years ago, the big design move was an addition built literally around a spectacular 70-year-old sycamore tree: The trunk rose up from the floor and through the ceiling. “It was the best space in the house,” said Latner, 31, adding that guests naturally gravitated to the novel space. “But it was also my bedroom. I thought, 'Let's turn this room into the main feature of the house. This is where we are going to be spending most of our time.'” So for another remodel, Latner turned to Aaron Neubert , the Silver Lake architect who designed the first addition.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Ron Smith, a rare campaign strategist who worked both sides of the partisan aisle, managing races for some of California's most prominent politicians in a decades-long career, has died. He was 71 and suffered a blood infection. Smith, who was openly gay long before it was widely accepted, promoted candidates who shared his philosophy of fiscal conservatism and broad-mindedness on social issues. Most were Republicans, including several from Silicon Valley, among them former Reps.
