Zac Efron puts Hollywood Hills West home up for sale

Zac Efron has put his chic home in Hollywood Hills West up for sale at $2.849 million.

Originally designed for the Case Study Program by Rodney Walker, the home was eventually built in 1947 and has been updated with an industrial vibe.

The actor-singer apparently has an eye for Midcentury Modern homes. He bought a Hollywood Hills house built in 1964 last fall for $3.995 million.

Features of the home Efron is selling include walls of glass, two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,424 square feet of living space. The concrete floors in the open-concept house are heated.

There also is an infinity-edge swimming pool on the nearly third of an acre lot.

The property last changed hands in 2008 for $2.35 million.

Efron, 26, became a teen heartthrob in the films "High School Musical" and "Hairspray," as well as the TV series "Summerland." He starred this year in "That Awkward Moment" and will be in "Neighbors," set for May release. He was a presenter this year at the 86th Academy Awards.

Kathrin Nicholson of the Agency in Beverly Hills is the listing agent.

McCourt moving her home base?

Jamie McCourt has put her Westside estate on the market at $55 million.

The former Dodgers chief executive and co-owner bought the property a decade ago with her then-husband Frank McCourt for close to its $25 million asking price, according to Times archives.

The compound, built in 1931, sits on 2.6 acres behind gates at the end of a several-hundred-foot-long driveway. Designed for grand-scale entertaining, the contemporary European-style villa features a step-down living room, a commercial kitchen, an art studio, an atrium, a bar, a billiard room, a home theater, a library/study, a dance studio and a wine cellar.

Besides the main house are a guesthouse, a staff apartment and a pool house. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in 20,637 square feet of living space.

The indoor swimming pool has a spa as well as steam and massage rooms.

The Times Mapping Database considers the community to be Westwood, while the Multiple Listing Service references it as Holmby Hills. The estate is near the Playboy Mansion.

McCourt, 60, bought a 22-acre vineyard estate in Napa in the fall for $11.25 million.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent.
