The late-'30s Paul Williams-designed home belonged to "Father Knows Best" actress Jane Wyatt until her death. Gallin bought the house in 2007 for $7 million and remodeled and expanded it into a seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom home that blends Williams' traditional style with the contemporary architecture of Scott Mitchell. Among the signature Williams design elements is a two-story circular entryway with a sweeping staircase.
Gallin replaced Wyatt's terraced gardens with a flat yard and built three sets of retaining walls, one of which runs along the infinity pool.
The 12,000-square-foot mansion was originally listed at $32 million.
Kurt Rappaport, Westside Estate Agency, Beverly Hills, was the listing agent. Michael Libow of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills South, represented the buyer.
