Actor Hank Azaria has paid exactly $10,000,000 to purchase a seven-bedroom, 8,434-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Bel-Air area.
As we continue clearing our cupboard of items that others have written about recently but that we have not yet discussed, we wanted to weigh in on Azaria's purchase in March of his new traditional-style home. Our friends over at the Real Estalker broke the story back on April 2 of the transaction, although Your Mama had not at that time yet sussed out Azaria's exact purchase price. Then, the folks over at Blockshopper reported the other day on the deal, noting that Azaria picked up his place for exactly $10 million.
Built in 1932, Azaria's new house has 10 baths, a master suite with a coffered ceiling and a large deck, four upstairs bedroom suites, a chef's kitchen with Carrera marble, a formal dining room, a paneled office, a large living room with lots of light, and a new addition with a family room, a craft room, a gym below and two additional bedrooms, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.72-acre (31,468-square-foot) property include city to ocean views, a grassy lawn, a pool, and lushly landscaped grounds, according to public records and listing information.
The house had been on the market for $13,975,000. Records show that Azaria purchased it through his Eig Trust, with the money manager whose name is on the deed being that of Jeff Lane. Eagle-eyed readers of ours will note that Lane has represented many celebrities over the years, including Kelsey Grammer (see Grammer post below) and Azaria's ex, Helen Hunt. The seller is not a celebrity.
As the Real Estalker noted, Azaria owns two other properties in the Los Angeles area: an 1,108-square-foot house in the Hollywood Dell area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills that he owns through his Mew Trust; and a 3,320-square-foot house in Beverly Hills (which that is right across the street from a house that has become a millstone around actress Sharon Stone's neck; Stone bought it in early 2006 for $10,995,000, never occupied it, and soon after tried to sell it, to no success). Azaria owns the Beverly Hills house through his Eig Trust.
