A five-bedroom, 5,676-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills that child actor and radio host Danny Bonaduce once owned has sold for $1,381,000 after once having been listed for $2,599,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of the house at 2651 La Cuesta Drive, which is off Nichols Canyon. The house is yet another in a long tale of celebrity-linked, apparently foreclosed-upon houses (and we thank our friends over at the Real Estalker for the other day noting pop singer Ryan Cabrera's recent listing in a short sale for $1.1 million of his house in the Hills and his recent notice of default; we previously had written about the house when it was up for $1.699 million but had not known of Ryan's problems!).
However, Danny Bonaduce's association with the property at 2651 La Cuesta is long gone. He owned the Mediterranean-style house from the time he paid $985,000 for it in 1999 until he sold it in late 2002 for $1,275,000, according to public records. The person who purchased it from Bonaduce tried selling it in 2007 for at least $2,899,000 (and maybe $2,995,000) and later was reduced to $2,599,000. The house at some point then went to a short sale with an asking price of $1,995,000, as this website notes. Eventually, however, the owner appears to have lost the house to a bank, apparently in a foreclosure, and the Bank of New York then took title to it.
Built in 1995, the house has four and a half baths, views of the canyon, city and ocean, wrap-around balconies on three floors, a lofted entry with 25-foot-plus ceilings, a step-down living and dining room, and a gourmet kitchen, according to listing information. Other features include a media room/game room, maid’s or guests’ quarters with an elevator, and a private master suite with its own sitting room/library, fireplace, dual walk-in closets and an extra large bathroom, according to listing information. The house sits on a 0.17-acre (7,410-square-foot) lot, according to public records.
On June 1, a non-celebrity couple paid $1,381,000 to purchase the house from the Bank of New York, according to public records. The deal was recorded on June 30.
