"Dancing With the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke and actor David Charvet have put their Malibu house up for sale at $12.5 million.
Designed to evoke the south of France, where Charvet was born, the chateau-style home is in the Serra Retreat neighborhood. An 18th century fountain and sculpture courtyard sit outside the 6,769-square-foot house, which is reached from a gated stone driveway. More than three-quarters of an acre includes extensive lawns, a 200-bush rose garden, an orchard, a pool and a cabana.
Burke, 39, was the dance show's Season 7 champion and started hosting the competition in 2010. Charvet, 39, played Matt Brody on "Baywatch" from 1992 to '95 and starred last year in the TV movie "The Perfect Teacher."
He bought the property in 1998 for $1,275,000 as a tear down and built the house from the ground up.
Susan Monus of Coldwell Banker, Malibu West, is the listing agent.
Host your own follies in Holmby Hills
A Holmby Hills estate once owned by Ziegfeld Follies headliner and radio star Fanny Brice has come on the market at $65 million. The owners are Richard King of King World Productions and his interior designer wife, Lauren.
Originally constructed in 1938, the Hollywood Regency-style mansion was rebuilt and expanded over more than five years. The 2-acre property also has a guesthouse, a swimming pool, a pool house/gym and a lighted tennis court. The 17,000-square-foot house has eight bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Brice owned the home from the year it was built until her death in 1951 at 59. She was played by Barbra Streisand in the Broadway musical and 1968 film "Funny Girl."
King World, a television syndication company that is now part of CBS, brought "Our Gang" and Merv Griffin's "Wheel of Fortune" to new generations of TV viewers.
The Kings bought the house in 2001 for $15 million, according to Times archives.
Loren Judd of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills North, is the listing agent.
Laker moves forward in house deal
Update: Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has sold his Manhattan Beach bachelor pad for $2.1 million.
The house was listed for $2,399,000 in 2009, a couple of months after Odom married Khloe Kardashian. It came back on the market in May at $2,199,999.
The custom Mediterranean, built in 2002, has a two-story foyer, a hand-carved wet bar, three stone fireplaces, an office and a three-car garage. The 4,181-square-foot house has five bedrooms — some used by Odom as closet space — and five bathrooms.
A stepped terrace off the back of the house leads to a built-in barbecue area, a gas fire pit and a swimming pool and spa.
The two-time NBA champion, 31, bought the house in 2006 for $2.7 million, public records show. The east Manhattan Beach location is near the Lakers' practice center and the airport.
