Built in 1950 for real estate developer Sidney Brody and his wife, modernist art collector Frances Brody, the property was sold four years ago for close to $15 million to an investor-owner who spent three years restoring the Midcentury Modern home. Daytime talk show host DeGeneres bought the trophy home last winter for nearly $40 million.
Set on 2.3 acres, the house features the floor-to-ceiling glass walls typical of the Midcentury style and a central atrium/living room. There were nine bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms in 11,511 square feet of living space when the residence last appeared in the Multiple Listing Service.
A swimming pool, a pool house/guesthouse and a tennis court also are on the grounds.
Parker, 34, is a former Facebook president. The tech billionaire also is the co-founder of Plaxo, an online address book and social service.
