The homes of a “Star Trek” actor, an Oscar-winning screenwriter and a tech billionaire were among the most expensive real estate sales in the greater Los Angeles area this past week.
$23 million — Santa Monica
In the 600 block of East Channel Road, the former marital home of author-screenwriter Victoria Foyt and film director Henry Jaglom sold for $23 million, one of the most expensive transactions historically for the Westside community.
Set behind walls and antique gates, the 3.3-acre compound known as Villa Ruchello was used as a location for the film “Beverly Hills Cop” as well as a short-term home for members of Fleetwood Mac and British singer-songwriter Lily Allen.
Some 14,000 square feet of space is divided between an eight-bedroom main house, a two-bedroom guest house and a two-bedroom gatehouse. There are 12.5 bathrooms in all.
Outdoors, park-like grounds contain mature trees, gardens and a swimming pool with a series of cabanas.
Billy Rose, Edward Fitz and Santiago Arana of The Agency were the listing agents. Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates Beverly Hills represented the buyer.
