Actor Kelsey Grammer’s highly fluid housing situation, which we discussed in detail on June 26, has a new chapter to it, with the actor’s Fossil II Trust having purchased a 10,567-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles’ Holmby Hills neighborhood for an undisclosed amount.  On June 26, we wrote about Grammer and his wife selling their mansion in L.A.’s Bel-Air area to actress Salma Hayek—a rumor that we had seen on the Internet for several days prior and which also had been reported that morning in the New York Post. Our post on June 26 also contained what we believe is the definitive list of the homes that the peripatetic Grammer and his wife have purchased and sold over the years. However, it’s now clear that our list lacked one sale—their purchase of the mansion at 261 Baroda Drive from baking-soda heir Michael Armand Hammer and his wife, Dru Ann. The Grammers’ purchase, records show, had closed on May 11 and been recorded on June 22, but the public-records databases that we use did not register that purchase until sometime after June 26. We should note that the first reports of the Grammers buying the mansion at 261 Baroda appeared later on on June 26, when our friends over at the Real Estalker were the first ones to mention that they had heard rumors that Grammer and his wife Camille were “getting ready to close on yet another pricy property…on Baroda Drive in the Holmby Hills.” Little did any of us know at that time that the sale had already closed, just four days prior! Built in 1980 for composer Henry Mancini, the Grammers’ new five-bedroom house in the Holmby Hills is behind gates and has six baths and a tennis court, according to public records and past articles in the Los Angeles Times. It was listed by Mancini’s widow in 1994 for $5.5 million and sold the following year for $3.5 million to then-Disney executive Dennis Hightower, who sold it in 1998 to something called the Rue Baroda Property Trust. The Hammers purchased it from that trust in 2003 for $5,950,000, according to public records. One thing we’re still a bit puzzled by, however, is that on October 15, 2006, the Los Angeles Times’ Ruth Ryon reported that investor Michael Hahn had paid $10.5 million for the house that Grammer now owns, and that Hahn and John Bersci were planning to renovate and rebuild the mansion into something that they would list for $22 million. Public records, however, don’t bear this out. They plainly show that Hammer directly sold the mansion to the Grammers’ Fossil II Trust, and that there were no deals in between. We’d certainly be interested in anyone’s input on this. The Real Estalker, have you any thoughts? To take a look back at our detailed list of the properties that Grammer and his wife have owned (some of which they still own), go here. Of course, you’ll now have to add the Baroda Drive property to the mix as well. And when we get the exact amount that the couple paid for the Holmby Hills mansion, we’ll provide it for you here.
