A two-bedroom, Mediterranean-style house in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills that jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty once owned – and that actress Angelina Jolie reportedly took a look at last summer – has sold for an undisclosed price after having been listed for $2,000,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of the house, which is at 1840 Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles. Records show that the deal closed on April 29 and was recorded with Los Angeles County on May 12. The buyer is an accessories designer who has celebrity clients but who herself is not a celebrity. Ponty sold the house in 1996 for $275,000 to the person who just sold it. We wrote about the listing back on March 23. A published report in London’s Daily Star last August 15 had reported that Jolie had taken a look at the house. Reports at that time hnoted that Angelina was househunting alone after being furious that her beau, Brad Pitt, had purchased a bachelor pad in Berlin, Germany, less than six miles from the mansion that they own in Berlin. Built in 1922 (according to public records) or 1923 (according to listing information), the house measures 1,617 square feet (according to public records) or 2,800 square feet according to listing information). Features in the completely furnished and newly remodeled home include two baths, a rock pool, a sauna, a whirlpool, waterfalls, hot outdoor showers, an outdoor entertainment area, a workout and massage pavilion, and lush palm and fruit gardens, all on a 0.25-acre property, according to public records and listing information. As always, we’ll provide the sale price once it becomes available in the next few weeks. Check out the property website – complete with music – here.
