A compound fit for the King
A gated compound once owned by rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley and wife Priscilla has come on the market in Beverly Hills for lease at $25,000 a month.
The French Regency-style estate, built in 1958, sits on a 1.18-acre promontory with city-to-ocean views in the Trousdale Estates area. Recently remodeled, the 5,367-square-foot house has new flooring, a new kitchen and laundry room, and a resurfaced pool and spa. Floor-to-ceiling windows and walls of glass lend an indoor-outdoor feel to the four-bedroom, five-bathroom home with attached guesthouse.
Handwritten tributes from fans of the King adorn the property's entry gate.
Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills, has the listing.
Taking their act to Valley Village
Actor Corbin Bernsen and his wife, actress and interior designer Amanda Pays, have purchased a 1936 Tudor in Valley Village for $900,000.
The home, which was on the market for the first time in more than 60 years, is in need of a complete renovation.
Corbin and Pays, who try to bring back old homes' original grandeur, plan to do the same with this house. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has 2,415 square feet of living space and sits on a quarter-acre corner lot.
Although Bernsen, 56, is often remembered for his years on "L.A. Law" (1986-94), he has more recently appeared on "The Young and the Restless" (2004-10) and starred on the TV comedy "Psych" since 2006. Pays, 51, has appeared on "The Flash" (1990-91), "Nip/Tuck" (2006) and "Psych" (2008).
Michael J. Okun with Prudential California Realty, Studio City, had the listing. Kelly Sutherland with Coldwell Banker represented the Bernsen and Pays.
