Schwimmer sells his gated home in Hancock Park, Matt LeBlanc puts a Pacific Palisades house up for lease and Matthew Perry puts his Hollywood Hills West home back on the market.

The male cast members of “Friends” are keeping a score of Los Angeles real estate agents in Gucci loafers.

David Schwimmer, a.k.a. Ross Geller, sold his gated home in Hancock Park this summer for $8.865 million, public records show. He bought the 11,000-square-foot Mediterranean in 2001 for $5.5 million and listed it in November at $10.7 million.

The restored house, set on more than an acre on a palm-tree-lined street, was built in 1926 by Koerner & Gage, an architectural firm that also contributed to the design of the dome-topped Beverly Hills City Hall.

The main house includes a grand living room with 15-foot ceilings, a wood-paneled library, a den, a state-of-the-art screening room, a formal dining room, nine bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two powder rooms, five fireplaces, a wine cellar and a butler’s pantry. A detached guesthouse contains a bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen.

Mature trees and landscaping, a swimming pool, spa, north/south tennis court and a pavilion complete the grounds. There is a three-car garage.

Schwimmer, 45, directed the movie “Trust” (2010), as well as episodes of “Friends” and “Joey.” He has been on the series “Web Therapy” this year with “Friends” costar Lisa Kudrow and is in the thriller “The Iceman.” He plays half of a friendless couple in the off-Broadway show “Detroit.”

Magali Bergher of Westside Estate Agency and Arleen Ruby of Rodeo Realty in Beverly Hills were the listing agents.
