Actor Dylan McDermott has reduced the asking price of his 4,000-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Brentwood area from $11,000,000 to $8,995,000.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the price chop by McDermott. We exclusively wrote about McDermott's listing of the house back on August 3. The new price is effective January 21, according to the MLS.

As we noted in August, McDermott purchased the four-bedroom house in 1999 for $3,940,000 from actress Melanie Griffith and actor Antonio Banderas, who themselves had bought it in January 1997 from actress Michelle Pfeiffer and uber-TV show creator David E. Kelley.

Built in 1920, McDermott's Rockingham Avenue house has three baths, a two-story vaulted living room with a carved balcony, a den, and a second-story "muse" room, according to public records and listing information. Other features include original beams, stenciled walls, deep-set doorways, three fireplaces, a family room, and an eat-in Thomas Callaway kitchen, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.68-acre (29,447-square-foot) lot include a pool/spa area that overlooks the Riviera hills, a courtyard and fountain, and a 250-year-old oak tree, according to public records and listing information. The house is one of the first homes ever built in Brentwood, according to listing information.
