WEA In The News: Television Executive Fred Silverman Lists L.A. Estate for $30 Million

The Brentwood property, which has a five-bedroom main house, guesthouse and pool house, has been Mr. Silverman’s primary home for over two decades.

 

Network television executive Fred Silverman is putting his longtime Los Angeles estate on the market for $30 million, according to listing agents Stephen Shapiro and Richard Ehrlich of Westside Estate Agency.

The Brentwood property has been Mr. Silverman’s home for over 20 years, Mr. Shapiro said. The 2.63-acre gated estate has a five-bedroom main house measuring about 8,000 square feet, plus a four-bedroom guesthouse which Mr. Silverman uses as an office, Mr. Shapiro said. There is also a swimming pool, pool house and a tennis court.

Mr. Silverman has been an executive at all three major networks, and was known for bringing popular shows like “Three’s Company” to television. In 1988 he purchased the main house, a ranch built in the early 1950s, then renovated and expanded it, Mr. Shapiro said. Then in 1998 Mr. Silverman bought an adjacent home that became the guesthouse. The pool house doubles as a screening room, with a drop-drown screen and a projector. There is also a large koi pond with over 100 fish, Mr. Shapiro said.

Mr. Silverman, 78, couldn’t be reached for comment. Mr. Shapiro said he is selling because he and his wife have purchased a smaller home in Pacific Palisades.
