Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and his wife, Holly, have put a house in gated Mulholland Estates up for sale at $10.75 million.
Although the Multiple Listing Service considers the community in the 90210 ZIP Code to be the Beverly Hills Post Office area, The Times' Mapping L.A. database shows the mansion sits within Sherman Oaks.
The Mediterranean, custom built in 1992, features a family room with exposed beams, a paneled library, two bars, five fireplaces, a screening room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 11,107 square feet. Arched glass doors in an enclosed loggia lead to the lawn, a saltwater swimming pool with spa, a bathhouse and a gazebo on the more than three-quarters of an acre of grounds.
Billionaire Gores and his Beverly Hills-based private equity firm, Platinum Equity, became the owners last year of Palace Sports and Entertainment, which includes the Pistons.
The couple paid $4.595 million for the property in 1999, public records show. They own a house on Grosse Ile, Mich., south of Detroit, and other Westside properties.
Christine Martin, Samira Gores and Tiffany Martin of Hilton & Hyland are the listing agents.
All part of his new normal
Whether or not a $6.5-million offer was music to "Glee" co-creator and writer Ryan Murphy's ears, he has let his Malibu beach house go for that amount. Murphy bought the contemporary Mediterranean last year for $6,562,500.
Entered through a courtyard with a koi pond, the nearly 2,100-square-foot view home along the ocean includes two fireplaces, three en suite bedrooms and a powder room. The beachfront deck features a cabana, a spa, an outdoor shower and a fire pit.
Murphy, 46, co-created "American Horror Story" (2011-present) and this year's comedy "The New Normal." The "Nip/Tuck" creator wrote and directed the movie "Eat Pray Love" (2010).
Ann Eysenring of Partners Trust in Beverly Hills was the listing agent. Linda Kanner of PreVue Properties represented the buyer.
A cliffhanger for Venice home
Director-producer Renny Harlin has listed his house in Venice at $1.999 million.
The three-level home features an open floor plan, radiant-heated polished concrete floors, balconies, two master bedrooms with fireplaces, another bedroom, an office and 21/2 bathrooms in 2,756 square feet of living space.
Harlin, 53, has worked on such films as "Die Hard 2" (1990), "Cliffhanger" (1993) and "Deep Blue Sea" (1999). On television, he has directed episodes of "White Collar" (2012) and "Burn Notice" (2011-12). He is an ex-husband of Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis.
Harlin paid $1.7 million for the property in 2004, public records show. He has been leasing it out.
Jennifer Hughes of Bulldog Realtors is the listing agent.
