Famed producers asking for $15 million less for the 8+ acre estate
By Chad Winthrop
Famed television producer Norman Lear has relisted his 8.29-acre Brentwood estate for just under $40 million, $15 million less than the 2015 asking price for the property as a number of LA megamansions are lowering prices
Located at 1911 Westridge Road, the property includes an approximately 14,000-square-foot main house, a 3-bedroom guest house and a 35-car garage, according to the listing.
“This masterpiece is an exceptional gated estate sitting on 8.29 acres of impeccable grounds providing expansive ocean, city and canyon views throughout,” reads the listing from real estate agent Joshua Altman.
The estate was listed on October 24 as being listed in 2016 for $39.95 million and $55 million in 2015.
The listing comes as several other L.A. megamansions are lowering asking prices, such as designer Max Azria’s California estate, which was relisted recently for $10 million less than prior.
Lear, 97, behind works such as “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons” and “Sanford and Son.” He also worked on movies like “Stand by Me” and “Princess Bride”, bought the property in 1988 for $6.5 million, according to property records.
The main house has seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and four half bathrooms, according to the listing. A pool, spa, gym, and private tennis court are also part of the estate.
The formal living room has exposed ceiling beams and opens out onto an outdoor terrace. A chef’s kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar and a dining nook, and shares an open plan with the family room. There’s also a formal dining room, double-height library and study with cedar walls, according to the listing.
