Storyteller's home changes hands
The longtime family home of film director and producer Sydney Pollack and his wife, Claire, has sold in Pacific Palisades less than two months after it was listed at $7.85 million. The sales price was reported as $7,694,000 at BlockShopper.
Built in 1940 and '41 and designed by Wallace Neff, the 5,200-square-foot main house retains such signature Neff details as tall chimneys, thick walls, an oval dining room and French doors in many rooms leading to gardens. There are four bedrooms and 51/2 bathrooms.
Claire Pollack, who has an architecture degree, added windows and skylights, turned the attic into a screening room and built a two-story, 1,200-square-foot guesthouse that she used as an office. It contains a living room, one bedroom and 11/2 bathrooms.
The park-like site of more than three-quarters of an acre includes 50-year-old magnolia, ficus, birch and liquidambar trees, an herb garden, a gazebo, a sunken fire pit, an oval saltwater pool with spa and a koi pond outside what was Sydney Pollack's office.
Pollack, who died in 2008 at 73, won Academy Awards for directing and producing "Out of Africa" (1985). Among his dozens of other films were "The Firm" (1993), "Tootsie" (1982) and "The Way We Were" (1973).
