Actress Sharon Stone has sold a compound in the Beverly Crest area for $6.575 million.
The buyer is producer Lili Zanuck, widow of film producer Richard Zanuck.
Surrounded by walls and gated, the Mediterranean-style estate sits on 5 acres with pathways, bridges, waterfalls, fruit trees, a meditation garden, a swimming pool and a tennis court with viewing pavilion.
The main house, built in 1991, includes a paneled library, a wet bar in the living room and a master suite with dual bathrooms, dual dressing rooms and a terrace. The guest house contains a media room, a gym and two bedrooms, for a total of seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and four fireplaces. There is covered parking for about 14 cars.
Stone, 54, starred in the 1990s films "Total Recall," "Basic Instinct" and "Casino," for which she was nominated for an Academy Award. Her more recent work includes this year's thriller "Border Run," "The Burma Conspiracy" (2011) and appearances on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (2010). She will star in the upcoming films "Gods Behaving Badly" and "What About Love."
The actress bought the property in 2006 for $10.995 million and put it back on the market later that year at $12.5 million, according to the Multiple Listing Service. She has since leased out the estate. It was most recently priced at $7.5 million.
Zanuck, 58, shared a best picture Oscar with her late husband for "Driving Miss Daisy" (1989). Her other credits include "Cocoon" (1985) and "Reign of Fire" (2002).
Joe Babajian of Rodeo Realty, Beverly Hills, was the listing agent. Marisa Zanuck of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer. She is Lili Zanuck's daughter-in-law.
