<img src="http://www.bergproperties.com/images/exclusive.jpg" alt="" />A vacant, 2.08-acre lot in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades area that once was owned by actor Michael Keaton and that subsequently was owned by TV executive Lloyd Braun has sold for $7,800,000. <img height=175 src='http://www.bergproperties.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/evans-lot-ii.jpg' alt='evans-lot-ii.jpg' /><img height=175 src='http://www.bergproperties.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/evans-lot-i.jpg' alt='evans-lot-i.jpg' /> In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of the parcel at 14221 Evans Road in Pacific Palisades, which closed on January 29 and which was recorded on February 5. The buyers, a married couple from Santa Monica, are not celebrities. The lot had been on the market at one time for $13,495,000, and later for $9,750,000. Most recently, the tract had been for sale for $8,495,000. The property also appears to <a href="http://www.dreamhomesmagazine.com/Home123222.html">have been on the market</a> at one time for $17,500,000, including the construction cost of the home. The lot has a storied history. Actor Michael Keaton owned the lot from 1996 until 2002 through his Spooky Dunbar Trust but never constructed a house on it. Keaton’s trust sold the lot in December 2002 for $3,650,000 to Braun, a TV executive whom Jerry Seinfeld spoofed in his sitcom by giving a hapless character on the show the exact same name. Braun was the seller in the January 29 transaction. Features on the lot include mature towering trees, a charming creek and a bridge, according to listing information, the most recent of which is <a href="http://www.luxuryrealestate.com/743063">here</a>. The lot also included plans and permits for a 15,000-square-foot home designed by Richard Landry, according to listing information. Also, the lot is located on Evans Road, an ultra-exclusive, private street in Pacific Palisades – so private, in fact, that the houses on the street often are mistakenly identified as being on Sunset Boulevard (i.e., many public documents incorrectly will interchangeably identify this lot as having the address of 14221 W. Sunset Boulevard). And how exclusive is the street? It’s so exclusive that the onetime Keaton and Braun lot that just sold is just two doors down from California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s onetime, 5.28-acre, four-lot compound, at 14203, 14209 and 14215 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road. The Governator’s onetime compound had consisted of four separate, contiguous properties: --A 4,177-square-foot house on a 1.37-acre parcel at 14203 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road. Schwarzenegger had purchased that house in 2001 for an undisclosed amount, and sold it in April 2004 for $2,537,525, according to public records. --A vacant, 1.29-acre lot at 14205 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road that Schwarzenegger had purchased from actor Daniel J. Travanti in May 1995 for exactly $2,000,000, according to public records. He sold the lot, which had had a house on it when Travanti had owned it, in 2004 as part of the sale of the house next door at 14209 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road (see next bullet point below). --A 7,654-square-foot house on a 1.38-acre parcel at 14209 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road that Schwarzenegger . The governor-actor sold this property – and the vacant lot next door – to celebrated golfer Denis Watson and his lawyer wife Susan Loggans in 2004 for $7,950,000, according to public records. <a href="http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1217041arnold1.html">Loggans famously had sued</a> the governor in late 2004 for allegedly having hid damage to the estate’s pool and tennis court, as well as mold problems in the house’s screening room. Loggans long has had that house (along with the adjacent lot at 14205 that we reference above) on the market for $23,000,000. Check out an online listing sheet for that house <a href="http://guests.themls.com/profile_page.cfm?mls=07-208681">here</a>. --And a 5,713-square-foot house on a 1.24-acre parcel at 14215 W. Sunset Boulevard / Evans Road. Schwarzenegger sold the house at 14215 in mid-2004 for $4,150,000, according to public records. For those wondering, Gov. Schwarzenegger’s current L.A.-area home is a seven-bedroom, 14,500-square-foot mansion on 9.403 acres at 12989 Chalon Road in Los Angeles’ Brentwood area, just off Mandeville Canyon Road, which the Governator he purchased in 2002 for $4,863,000, according to public records.
