Actor Jason Connery, who is the son of famed actor Sean Connery, has paid $1,547,000 for a 3,834-square-foot house in the Beachwood Canyon area of Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills.

 

In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the purchase by Connery. The son of Sean Connery and Diane Cilento, Jason Connery, 44, is lesser known but has appeared in several dozen movies and TV series. An unmarried dad who has been divorced since 2002 from actress Mia "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" Sara, the London-born Connery lives in Los Angeles because that's where his ex-wife lives and because he and Sara are working to stay involved with their son Dashiel, he has said in past news interviews.

Built in 1928, Connery's new house has four bedrooms and three baths, according to public records. The house sits on a very small, less than 0.1-acre parcel, according to public records.

The house, which Connery purchased with a woman who is a Hollywood producer, did not appear to have been on the market. As a result, there is little information available online about his new house. However, the house is in an area with at least some measure of celebrity cache, since actor Danny Masterson, best known for his role on "That '70s" Show," is trying to sell the 2,567-square-foot house that he owns that is literally next door to Connery's new house. We wrote about Masterson's house on May 7.

Connery also owns a cottage in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland, according to news accounts.
