Talk-show host Larry King and his wife, Shawn Southwick, reportedly have agreed to buy a Beverly Hills house that had been on the market for close to $12 million. The deal hasn’t closed yet, so it’s unclear whether the five-bedroom, Tuscan-style house at 707 N. Hillcrest Road, which had been listed for $11,995,000, truly will become theirs. Built in 1989, the private and gated house has 9,596 square feet, nine baths and a pool, all on half-acre lot, according to public records. The house’s current owner paid $6,995,000 in 2004 to buy it, according to public records. Today’s Wall Street Journal is reporting that the house had been listed for less than two weeks before King decided to buy the house, which also has a two-bedroom guesthouse, a skylit foyer and a master suite with a sitting room and twin bathrooms, the paper reported. The Journal reported that the deal is set to close later this month. Take a look here at a cached thumbnail sketch of the house. The photo shows only the house’s kitchen. If King’s potential new street sounds familiar, that’s because actress Jennifer Aniston also bought on Hillcrest recently, paying $13.5 million in October for her new house up the street at 1004 N. Hillcrest Road.
