(MCT)—It has been a busy real estate year for former “Friends” cast mates. Actors Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry have both sold places. Now actor-director David Schwimmer has put his home in Hancock Park on the market at $10.7 million.
The roughly 11,000-square-foot gated Mediterranean sits on slightly more than an acre. The house was built in 1926 by architectural firm Koerner&Gage, which also contributed to the design of Beverly Hills City Hall.
The restored main home features nine bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a den, a state-of-the-art screening room, a formal dining room, two powder rooms, five fireplaces and a butler area.
The backyard includes a swimming pool, spa, north/south tennis court and a pavilion. The detached loft-style guesthouse contains a bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Schwimmer, 45, played Ross Geller on the comedy series “Friends” (1994-2004). Each member of the six-person cast was paid $1 million an episode in the show’s two final seasons. More recently, Schwimmer directed the movie “Trust” (2010).
The Multiple Listing Service shows that the house previously sold in 2001 for $5.5 million.
Where a Teenage Steve McQueen Hung Out
A triplex in Silver Lake that was once home to a teenage Steve McQueen is listed for $599,900.
The updated Spanish-style building, constructed in 1923, contains three one-bedroom units in 1,660 square feet on two levels. The landscaped property is walled and gated with a lawn and deck. There is also a storage room, wine cellar and laundry.
McQueen, who died in 1980 at 50, was known for his tough-guy persona. The box-office star appeared in such films as “The Magnificent Seven” (1960), “The Great Escape” (1963), “Bullitt” (1968), “Papillon” (1973) and “The Towering Inferno” (1974).
Last month, the then bank-owned building sold for $360,000. McQueen lived there in the 1940s, according to the biography “Steve McQueen: The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon.”
Place with a Past in the Hollywood Dell
Actress and author Michele Greene has sold her longtime home in the Hollywood Dell for $931,000.
The classic Spanish-style house, built in 1923, was restored and upgraded in 2004. Once home to director King Vidor, and later actress Helen Hayes, the residence retains coved ceilings, arches, expansive windows with original glass and a Batchelder tile fireplace.
The 1,800-square-foot house includes an eat-in kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside are two patios, rose and vegetable gardens, and a roof deck.
Greene, who had a recurring role on “Brothers and Sisters” in 2009, starred on “L.A. Law” (1986-91) and “The Unit” (2006).
As an author in the young adult market, she has published novels with HarperCollins and Simon&Schuster. Her latest is “Keep Sweet.”
Greene, 49, sold to relocate and write her next novel. Her house came on the market late last year at $1.05 million.
