Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Quietly List BevHills Estate

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.
