Producer Gavin Polone Buys Beverly Hills Ranch House (EXCLUSIVE)

We first heard word from tireless real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak — and property records confirm — that talent agent turned eight-time Emmy-nominated television producer Gavin Polone shelled out $1.95 million in an off-market deal for a mid-century ranch house near the end of a discreet and whisper quiet cul-de-sac in the upper reaches of Coldwater Canyon Drive in the Beverly Hills Post Office area. Curiously enough, the single-story house is right next door to a similarly sized mid-century ranch house the notoriously brash and politically outspoken “Curb Your Enthusiasm” producer purchased earlier this year for $1.87 million.

The new purchase, at approximately 2,700 square feet, is described in online marketing materials as a “three bedroom, three bathroom fixer.” It includes a wall-to-wall-carpeted formal living room with a pitched ceiling, a fireplace set into a smooth paneled wall, and a long bank of nearly floor-to-ceiling glass sliders. Wrapped in once elegant but now campy butterscotch-brocade wallpaper, the formal dining room links through to the eat-in kitchen, which has original cabinetry and lemon-yellow ceramic-tile countertops. A separate den features a massive stone fireplace, a bank of built-in bookcases, and sliding glass doors. These lead to a deep loggia that runs along the rear of the house and looks out to a somewhat small but lushly landscaped backyard nestled into the base of a steep slope.

It’s unclear what plans the producer has for the side-by-side properties, given that he already owns a much more expansive and luxurious 2.3-plus-acre estate that’s privately perched on a high ridge near the top of the Trousdale Estates neighborhood in Beverly Hills. Polone acquired the multi-parcel, gated estate in three separate transactions in the late 1990s and unsuccessfully attempted to sell back in 2012 at $15.9 million. He additionally owns an updated 1960s home in the mountains above Sherman Oaks, acquired in 2009 for $1.12 million.

Both buyer and seller of the Beverly Hills home were represented by Mauricio Umansky and Ben Belack at The Agency.
