Horror film producer Oren Koules has sold his four-bedroom house in the Beverly Hills, Calif. postal area (also known as the Beverly Hills Post Office or the BH PO), which actor Matthew Perry previously had owned, for $8,250,000, which is an amount far below Koules' $12,500,000 asking price.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Koules' sale price of the house, which is at 630 Clinton Place in the BH PO. Records show that Koules' Clinton Place Trust sold the house on February 6, with the deal being recorded on February 17. The buyer is something called Awila LLC.
We had exclusively written about the listing of Perry's former house (but not identifying Koules as the owner) back on October 19. Subsequent to that, the Los Angeles Times' Ann Brenoff wrote about Koules' listing of the house -- but did not identify it as having been Perry's former house!
Built in 1973, the house, which is in the Trousdale Estates area of the BH PO, measures either 8,036 square feet, according to listing information, or 6,910 square feet, according to public records. Either way, the house is described in listing information as being “Lautner-esque” (after architect John Lautner), and was described many years ago by the Los Angeles Times’ Ruth Ryon as having an “almost industrial” look.
Features in the rock, glass and steel house include five baths, three fireplaces, a Poliform kitchen, a family room, a two-story high living room, a master suite with a Poliform closet, and a 14-person, tiered screening room, according to listing information. We know that public records state that one parcel has a 6,910-square-foot house on it while the other has a 6,581-square-foot house on it; despite that description in public records, we have been told by those who know that there is just one house on the two parcels.
The 0.44-acre property (an 11,208-square-foot parcel and a 7,976-square-foot parcel) sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and has city-to-ocean views, an infinity pool and a spa, according to public records and listing information.
Koules (shown here with wife Shereen Arazm) also was the executive producer of TV's "Two and a Half Men" at one time.
