Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Quietly List BevHills Estate

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Mansion

It was Our Fairy Godmother in Beverly Hills who reached out via digital missive to let us know that word on the Platinum Triangle real estate street is Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are about to sell their longtime Beverly Hills estate in a hush-hush off-market deal for somewhere in the neighborhood of $24 million. The (alleged) buyer was identified to this property gossip as a mansion-flipping couple who late last year unloaded a freshly rehabbed Holmby Hills estate for a tetch under $30 million.

The DeVito-Perlman spread is not listed on the open market, so we didn’t turn up any publicly accessible marketing materials. However, digital listing details from back in 2007 and 2008, when the couple had the estate on the open market with an asking price of just under $32 million, show the nearly 15,000-square-foot French Country-style mansion was originally built in the 1930s, and designed by noted architect Wallace Neff. At least half a dozen en suite bedrooms and seven bathrooms are joined by staff quarters, a 35mm screening room and an extensive office suite. The gated and fully landscaped grounds cover about two acres, and feature stone terraces, mature gardens, a complete guesthouse and both outdoor and indoor swimming pools.
Next door is the turreted mansion Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston bought from philanthropic media heiress Wallis Annenberg in 2001, and sold in 2006 for $22.5 million to hedge fund founder Jon Brooks. Some of the other deluxe domiciles in the immediate vicinity are owned by Hollywood luminaries including David Geffen, Brad Grey and Simon Fuller, whose sleeky renovated mansion is listed on the open market with a newly reduced asking price of $18.5 million.

The DeVito-Perlmans’ property portfolio also includes a small bungalow a few blocks off Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and, since at least the late 1990s, a multi-residence compound on Malibu’s celebrity-lined and rapidly eroding Broad Beach.

    Ummm… seems some of Hollywood’s elite liberals are bailing out of Californication real estate.

    I wonder which over-seas tax haven The Boss, the Perlman-DeVito’s and others selling pricey “homes” will move their money (and ex-pat status?) to presently?

    Perhaps this rag will follow their money and travels abroad… in the coming months and report back?

      Indeed…………. It would be refreshing to find out where these righteous hypocritical liberals who endlessly make disparaging remark against conservatives and wealth are hiding, I mean “investing” their few pennies, the poor dears. At least they keep promoting socialism all the while getting a few alms,,,,,,,,,,

    • Phillip Themholes says:

      That’s a pretty stupid remark that bares no resemblance to the facts at hand. Property values in California are blowing up and Americans with means are buying here. Keep listening to Rush Limbaugh and see just how stupid you end up.

    I saw Danny Devito twice in “One Flew Over The Cookoo’s Nest” off-Broadway in 1973. He as one of the crazy people in the looney bin & he didn’t speak a word. Willian Devane played McMurphy.

    I hope the divorce is not back on. I for one was happy when they called it off before.

  4. Mark says:

    This is probably the only Wallace Neff house I would demolish. It would even be better if the Annenberg–Pitt/Aniston–Brooks mansion’s grounds could be expanded to include this property. Somehow the alignment would be the problem.

    Or, alternatively, Brad Grey could extend his grounds. I’m still waiting for the renderings of his house to pop up online.
