Robert Duvall Sells One of Two West Hollywood Bungalows

Location:
West Hollywood, Calif.
Price:
$1.605 million
Size:
1,065 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus guesthouse with bath

Robert Duvall, known for his roles in “The Godfather” films and “Apocolypse Now,” sold one of two modest but hardly inexpensive homes he’s long maintained along the same street in the Norma Triangle neighborhood of West Hollywood, Calif., for $1.605 million. The 86-year-old actor, nominated for a total of seven Oscars and the winner of one, in 1984 for “Tender Mercies,” and his fourth wife, accomplished Argentine actress and director Luciana Pedraza, 41-years his junior, purchased the property in February 2008 for $1.125 million from documentary filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, wife of California’s current Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, who’d purchased the house about four years earlier for $840,000.

The renovated 1920s Spanish bungalow measures in at an apartment sized 1,065-square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are caramel-colored hardwood floors, high ceilings and a compact, efficiently arranged U-shaped kitchen that’s open to the combination living and dining room and fitted with eggshell-colored cabinetry, beige stone countertops and newer stainless steel appliances. One of the bedrooms has a small sitting area or office nook that looks out to the front courtyard plus an outside entrance and an en suite bathroom while the other sits adjacent to a hall bathroom with two closets that flank a small dressing area with glass sliders to the backyard. A detached one-car garage at the rear of the property has been converted to additional living space with dark hardwood floors, French doors, a long and slender bathroom and an unexpectedly large walk-in closet. Though the lot is unquestionably puny at just .07 of an acre, there are nonetheless a generous trio of brick-paved outdoor living and entertaining areas that include a walled and gated courtyard at the front of the house, a gated parking space for one car, a fenced patio outside the dining area along the side of the house and a courtyard-scaled backyard privatized by extraordinarily tall and carefully clipped hedges.

Duvall and Pedraza own another similarly sized home on the same street that was purchased in March 2005 for $975,000 — it is not currently for sale on the open market — and the couple’s extensive residential real estate holdings also include: a two-bedroom and two-bathroom residence inside the gates of the Palm Beach Polo & Country Club in Wellington, Fla., they acquired in October 2015 for $425,000; a two-bedroom and two-bathroom condo in a luxury complex along the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. snapped up in September 2006 for $1.095 million; and a 361-acre farm in The Plains, Va., that Duvall bought in 1994 for $3.65 million and that tax records show is anchored by a grand, 27-room mansion with 10 bedrooms and 9 full and four half bathrooms in 11,352-square-feet.
