Everyone Knows His Name There
Actor Kelsey Grammer is back at it—trying to sell his home in the Beverly Crest area — this time for $17.999 million.
Priced at $19.9 million in 2008, the mansion is described as modern Traditional in style. The two-story house, built in 1980, features a central hall, media room, a library, a wine cellar and a service entrance. There are seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10,567 square feet of living space. A swimming pool, a six-car motor court and a four-car garage complete the grounds of more than three-quarters of an acre.
Grammer, 57, won four Emmys for his lead role in “Frasier” (1993-2004), a “Cheers” spin-off, and another in 2006 for voice work as Sideshow Bob on “The Simpsons.” More recently he has been executive producer of “Medium” and starred in the political drama “Boss.” He and his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh, were married last year and are expecting twins.
Public records show he bought the property in 2007 for $13.7 million.
Linkletter Estate Changes Hands
It’s the darndest thing. The Art Linkletter estate in Bel-Air has sold above asking price for $10.6 million.
Built in 1957, the 5,000-square-foot Midcentury Modern house includes two atriums, sculptural metal screens, pocket doors, two stone fireplaces and walls of glass. Carports and a motor court can accommodate about 20 cars.
There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The 4.6-acre city-view site contains a solar-heated swimming pool, a sports court and a lawn dotted with flagstone pathways.
Linkletter, who died two years ago at 97, hosted the long-running radio and television shows “People Are Funny” starting in the 1940s and “House Party,” which was renamed “The Art Linkletter Show.”
His interviews with children, which aired from 1952 to 1970, led to his 1957 bestseller, “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” and several sequels. His wife, Lois, died in October at 95. They were married for 75 years.
The property came on the market at $10.25 million in March for the first time in 40 years.
