SELLER: Hank Azaria
LOCATION: Beverly Hills (Post Office), CA
SIZE: 3,320 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Four-time Emmy winner Hank Azaria has put a home he owns deep in the Beverly Hills Post Office area up for sale with an asking price of $3.5 million. This is not, some of the children may recall, Mister Azaria’s first time at the rodeo with this particular property: Back in the late summer and fall of 2010 he unsuccessfully attempted to sell the property with a $3.6 million price tag and concurrently had it available for lease at $11,000 per month.
Property records show Mister Azaria purchased the property in August 2000 for exactly $2,000,000 and current digital marketing details put the shingled two-story residence at 3,320 square feet with four en suite bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and three stone fireplaces. The house sits behind gates and across a babbling brook — a bit of a crick, really — on .44 gated acres near the tail end of the same exceptionally narrow private canyon lane where Taylor Swift owns a multimillion dollar compound.
Listing details, which describe the house as a “Frank Lloyd Wright inspired, Prairie House architecture home,” note there are formal living and dining rooms, an office and an open-plan kitchen and family room that opens to a stone terrace that overlooks a grassy yard with dark bottomed swimming pool, raised spa and a vine-draped dining pergola.
Mister Azaria has been a busy real estate beaver the last year or two. In May 2013 he sold a Gerard Colcord-designed residence in the quietly ritzy Riviera area of Pacific Palisades for $6,223,500 and six or so weeks later unloaded a small house in the Hollywood Hills for $655,000. At the same time he dumped the Pacific Palisades property he also sold a large loft in New York City’s tourist swamped SoHo ‘hood to Meg Ryan for $8,000,000 and in April of this year he and his missus shelled out $9.225 million for a nine-room, park view apartment in a storied Central Park West building.
