Actor Kyle Bornheimer has paid $1,250,000 for a three-bedroom house in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz area, and has sold a 1,196-square-foot house in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake area for its $739,000 asking price.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on both transactions, which were recorded in the last five weeks or so. Bornheimer may not yet be a household name, but he’s been a fixture in national commercials for years. And, he just landed the male lead in an upcoming CBS single-camera comedy pilot called “Worst Week.” In Los Feliz, records show that Bornheimer purchased his new two-story house from serial flipper Jeff Lewis, who first had listed the house for $1,525,000, then reduced it to $1,349,000 and then slashed it further to $1,295,000. (The market really is *that* tough in L.A. right now.) Built in 1929, Bornheimer’s new 1,989-square-foot house has three baths, Ann Sack tile, hardwood floors, original stained glass windows, a step-down living room with a fireplace, beamed ceilings, a built-in plasma TV, French doors, a formal dining room with beamed ceilings, and a high-end kitchen with a breakfast room, honed granite counters, custom cabinets and a Viking range, according to public records and listing information. Other features include a pool, a fountain, and new landscaping, all on a 0.74-acre lot, according to public records and listing information. Back when Lewis was trying to sell the house (i.e., long before Bornheimer bought it), our friends over at the Real Estalker wrote about it, correctly noting that Lewis had purchased the house in 2006 for $975,000.


The two-bedroom Craftsman-style house that Bornheimer sold is at 975 Sanborn Avenue in Los Angeles. Built in 1913, the house has one bath and original details, according to listing information. Outside on the 0.13-acre lot is a two-car garage, a workshop, a studio and fruit trees, according to public records and listing information.
