The roughly 11,000-square-foot gated Mediterranean sits on slightly more than an acre. The house was built in 1926 by architectural firm Koerner & Gage. Along with John Austin and Frederick M. Ashley, they also designed Beverly Hills City Hall.
The restored main home features nine bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wood-paneled library, a den, a state-of-the-art screening room, a formal dining room, two powder rooms, five fireplaces and a butler area.
The backyard includes a swimming pool, spa, north/south tennis court and a pavilion. The detached loft-style guesthouse contains a bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Schwimmer, 45, played Ross Geller on the comedy series "Friends" (1994-2004). Last year, he directed the movie "Trust."
Public records show the house previously sold in 2001 for $5.6 million.
Magali Bergher of Westside Estate Agency and Arleen Ruby of Rodeo Realty in Beverly Hills are the listing agents.
