Today's edition of "Which celebrity's house is this?" involves the 10,144-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades area, which sold the week between Christmas and New Year's Day for exactly $16,000,000.
The buyer was something called the Anything Trust, and while the Lodi, Calif.-based money manager whose name appears on the deed, Paul Booth, isn't a name that we normally see on celebrities' deeds, the mansion's purchase price and the fact that a whimsically named trust was used to purchase it suggest to us that the buyer may well have been a celebrity.
The mansion had been listed for the exact amount -- $16,000,000 -- that it sold for. Records show that the house, which was built in 1942, sold on December 27. The deal was recorded on January 3.
Features in the seven-bedroom mansion include 10 baths (or 11 baths, according to listing information), a library, an oval dining room, two powder rooms and a family room that opens to a chef's kitchen, according to public records and listing information. Outside on the 0.8-acre property are a swimming pool and a spa with a separate changing area and bath, according to public records and listing information.
Unfortunately, no photos of the mansion are available. Check out an online listing sheet for the house -- with text only -- here.
The previous buyer had paid $9,500,000 for the house, back in mid-2004, according to public records.
