Former U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher has placed his longtime, four-bedroom house in Beverly Hills, Calif. on the market for $3,259,000, and has paid an undisclosed amount for a 2,349-square-foot condominium unit in Los Angeles' Century City area that had been on the market for $1,950,000.  Christopher, 82, served as Secretary of State during President Bill Clinton's first term. The Los Angeles Times' 'Hot Property' feature, which recently has shifted under new columnist Ann Brenoff from a Sunday-only column to a Sunday column plus an ongoing-throughout-the-week, Internet-based column, broke the story of Christopher's transactions on Friday, April 11.  Indeed, records show that on March 26, Christopher listed his longtime, 3,428-square-foot house in Beverly Hills, which he has owned since 1976. The Connecticut farmhouse-style house has two addresses: 1299 Monte Cielo Court and 1701 Coldwater Canyon Drive in Beverly Hills, and it sits at the corner of those two streets. Built in 1935, Christopher's house has four full baths, one three-quarter bath, and a separate guest studio, according to public records and listing information. The one-story house has a pool, is set on huge lawns among specimen trees, and sits on a 0.41-acre parcel, according to public records and listing information.

Christopher is selling the house in Beverly Hills because he has purchased a new condo in L.A.'s Century City area, and that he will also continue to own his main home in Santa Barbara County, Calif. Our own search of public records shows that on January 23, Christopher and his wife, Marie, paid an undisclosed price for the condo, which is in the guard-gated Le Parc building at 10128 Empyrean Way in Century City.  Christopher's new, two-bedroom condo in Century City has two and a half baths, high ceilings, hardwood floors, crown moldings, a fireplace in the living room, and two walk-in closets in the master suite, according to listing information. Other features include a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, according to listing information. The Le Parc building was constructed in 1979, according to public records. Christopher's new unit in Century City had been on the market for $1,950,000. When the purchase price of his condo clears public records in the next few weeks, we'll print it here.
