Michael C. Hall of "Dexter" fame has bought a restored home in Los Feliz for $3.825 million.
The updated 1920s Spanish Colonial and guesthouse have killer views of the surrounding hillsides and cityscape. Features include archways, beam ceilings, wrought-iron work, French doors and wood floors. There are six bedrooms, six bathrooms and more than 5,600 square feet of living space. The gated grounds contain a swimming pool.
Hall, 42, has starred as the murder-minded main character on "Dexter" since 2006. Before that he was on HBO's funeral-home drama "Six Feet Under" (2001-05). The final season of "Dexter" starts at the end of the month. Hall will appear in "Kill Your Darlings," set for release in October.
The turnkey property previously sold a year ago for $2.09 million, public records show.
Konstantine Valissarakos of Sotheby's International Realty was the listing agent. Joshua Myler of the Agency in Beverly Hills represented the actor.
Singer buys in bulk
Singer Katy Perry has bought two adjacent homes in Hollywood Hills West for $11 million.
The compound, if that's how she intends to use the properties, has about four acres of land, two swimming pools and two guesthouses.
One property contains a Spanish-style house built in the 1950s with three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 3,884 square feet of living space.
The other is a Midcentury Modern-style glass-walled house with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,916 square feet of space.
Neither house was on the Multiple Listing Service.
Perry, 28, is set to release a new album this summer. Among her previous albums are "One of the Boys" (2008) and "Teenage Dream" (2010), which included five No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Gabor's estate gets a new owner
Zsa Zsa Gabor's longtime Bel-Air estate has sold for $11 million in a court-approved deal that will enable the ailing actress to remain in the home for three years.
The French Regency-style mansion, used as the setting of the Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra," sits on a one-acre-plus gated promontory with views of downtown Los Angeles, Santa Catalina Island and the ocean.
The 28-room home, built in 1955, has a formal sitting room with an antique French fireplace, an oversized dining room with city views, a butler's pantry off the kitchen, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in 8,878 square feet of living space.
Former residents include Howard Hughes and Elvis Presley. Gabor bought the house in 1973 for $280,000.
Her scores of TV and film appearances include a starring role in "Moulin Rouge" (1952) and guest appearances on "The Hollywood Squares" in the 1960s and '70s and "The New Hollywood Squares" in the '80s.
Roger Perry of Rodeo Realty was the sales agent. Janet Farzan of Janet Farzan Real Estate in Beverly Hills represented the buyer.
