The sale price has cleared public records for the 5,717-square-foot mansion in a gated area of Beverly Hills, Calif. that singer Paul Anka sold on March 22: $5,800,000.



At the same time, in a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report that Anka, 65, has paid $3,962,000 to purchase a 5,736-square-foot house in Thousand Oaks/Lake Sherwood, Calif., according to public records.

Back in January, we reported that Anka had listed his three-bedroom, Mediterranean-style house, at 3367 Clerendon Road in the Mulholland Estates area of the Beverly Hills postal region, listed for $5.995 million, shortly after the Real Estalker had written on the listing. In April, the Real Estalker reported that Anka had sold the Mulholland Estates house to Lisa Gores, the ex-wife of private equity billionaire Alec Gores. Public records subsequently revealed that ex-spouses Lisa Gores and Alec Gores both had purchased Anka's house, although the amount wasn't disclosed, and the name Alexa Gores appeared on the deed as well.

Now, in a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report that Anka sold the Mulholland Estates house to the Gores family for $5,800,000, according to public records. The sale was recorded on April 6.

Anka purchased the house in January 2005 for $3.5 million, according to public records, and he subsequently renovated it.

As for Anka's new home, the five-bedroom house at 2674 Stafford Road that he purchased in February 2007 (the purchase wasn't recorded until April 6) has five and a half baths and has views of the Sherwood Golf clubhouse, according to listing information. Features in Anka's new house, which sits on five-plus acres, include a sound/speaker system throughout, marble upgrades, a marble mosaic in the foyer, crystal chandeliers and a long, private, newer driveway, according to listing information. Plans also have been approved for a pool, pavilion, outdoor fireplace, koi pond and hillside terraced seating, according to listing information. The house had been listed for $4.1 million.
