Tracey Ullman Takes On Selling Brentwood Residence

SELLER: Tracey Ullman
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $3,499,000
SIZE: 3,013 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Less than a year after she lost her hairdresser turned producer husband Allan McKeown last December, shape-shifting English-born comedienne Tracey Ullman has put her contemporary house in L.A.’s Brentwood ‘hood up for sale with an asking price of $3,499,000. Property records show the six-time Emmy winner and her late husband only purchased the mid-60s residence — listing details describe it as an “unassuming Post and Beam architectural” in February 2013 for $2.566 million.

The house, perched on a steep hillside about as deep and high in the mountains above Brentwood as there are houses, has a bit of an interesting pedigree. In 1996 former Ronald Reagan Chief of Staff Fred Ryan, Jr. sold the property for an unknown amount to A-list decorator Michael Smith. Mister Smith, who did up the Oval office for President Obama, renovated the house as his personal residence and sold it in 2002 for $1.81 million to movie industry exec Jeff Robinov who, in turn, sold in June 2006 for $2.85 million.

Current listing details show the 3,013-square-foot house sits on nearly half an acre of mostly sloped property and has three bedrooms and 3 bathrooms including a master suite and bathroom with huge windows that look in to a tiny private courtyard. A walled, gated and olive tree shaded entry courtyard has water and sculptural features. Mexican pavers run throughout the cleverly integrated multi-level living spaces that include a double-height living room with two towering walls of windows, a cave-like media lounge with fireplace and an extra long dining room.

The tile floors continue in to the simply designed but expensively equipped kitchen with commercial style stainless steel appliances and a butcher block topped doublewide center island. The kitchen is open to a family room area with fireplace and a breakfast area that opens to a glass-railed deck that hangs over the canyon. The back of house wraps around and opens to a concrete terrace that quickly gives way to a long and slender infinity edged swimming pool with inset spa. Like the deck off the kitchen, a second glass-railed deck outside the living room allows for an oblique view of the entire Getty complex.

Previous to owning the Brentwood home that’s now for sale, Miz Ullman and her late husband owned a Spanish style mini-mansion in the quietly ritzy Riviera area of Pacific Palisades that they purchased in the late 1990s for $1.8 million and sold in April 2013 for $4.55 million to a high-end house flipping investment concern that gave the place a quick spiff and sold it in May (2014) for $7,855 million.
