‘Full House’ creator gets $20.2 million for spec house, and other top sales

A pricey trade between limited liability companies, a TV producer’s score above the Sunset Strip and the sale of a Hollywood director’s former home were among the high-water transactions recorded through the middle of November.

Here’s a larger look at the deals closed between Nov. 13-26.

$16.1 million — Santa Monica

Sandra Brass, the daughter of late Houston-based businessman Sanford Brass, sold an updated contemporary in the 2100 block of La Mesa Drive for $6.9 million less than the original asking price of $23 million.

Built for film director Herbert Ross, whose credits include the 1984 film “Footloose,” the 9,296-square-foot house was recently renovated and features walls of glass and a large central skylight that floods the interiors in natural light. A theater with seating for 20, a climate-controlled wine cellar and separate guest wings also lie within the home.

Walls of glass slide to reveal a lounge area with swimming pool, a sitting area and a fire pit. Views take in the greens and fairways of the Riviera Country Club golf course.

The home was listed at $16.5 million prior to the sale, records show.

Sandra Miller of Engel & Volkers was the listing agent. Richard Ehrlich of Westside Estate Agency represented the buyer.
