$25 million — Beverly Hills
An English traditional-style home where L.K. Sidney, the early CBS producer and former vice president of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, once lived sold for $3.45 million less than the asking price of $28.45 million.
Sitting on more than an acre on Tower Road, the house was originally built in 1934 and later updated and expanded to its current 15,300 square feet by Jeff Vance of IDGroup. Among the features are a media room, an oversized chef’s kitchen and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
There are a total of eight bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, including a three-bedroom detached guesthouse.
Other former owners include filmmaker and music executive Freddy DeMann and film producer Gale Anne Hurd.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent. Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.
