A BBC executive has sold a 2,191-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills (which comedian Carol Leifer once owned) for $2,050,000, and we have reason to believe that the buyer is a celebrity.
We exclusively wrote about this house, at 2955 Briar Knoll Drive in the Hills, back on July 13 when it was on the market for $2,150,000. This past week, the folks over at Blockshopper beat us to the punch in writing about this sale (although they had no idea who the buyer is either)..
Records show that the BBC exec, Paul Telegdy (who purchased the house from Leifer in 2006 for $1,800,000), sold the house on August 26 (deal recorded on September 16) for $2,050,000. We suspect that the buyer is a celebrity, since the buyer is shown as being a trust named the West Park Trust, and the trustee's name on the deed, Wayne Kamemoto, is a longtime business manager for celebrities. Readers, any thoughts on who might be the individual behind the West Park Trust?
Built in 1941, the house, which was billed by its listing agent as the "stunning family home of Senior TV Executive," has four baths, a large open floor plan, hardwood floors throughout, a living room/dining room with a fireplace, a veranda with city and canyon views, and a master suite with a marble spa-like bathroom, walk-in closets, surround sound, a fireplace and French door access to an English garden, according to public records and listing information. Outside on the 0.31-acre (13,416-square-foot) property are a gated driveway and a double garage, according to public records and listing information. The house at 2955 Briar Knoll is just one of three different houses in the same Hollywood Hills neighborhood that Leifer once owned, as we have written in more detail in the past.
