LOS ANGELES — Fifth time’s a charm for actor Kevin Nealon. After five relists over the past three years, the “Saturday Night Live” alum and his wife, actress Susan Yeagley, have sold their home in Pacific Palisades for $4.85 million.
Found half a mile from the beach, the corner-lot property is anchored by a Georgian-inspired traditional house of 5,600 square feet. Plantation shutters and white-painted brick accents boost the home’s curb appeal. Living spaces awash in white oak floors, detailed millwork and paneled walls sit beyond the front door.
In three stories of living space are seven bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, formal and informal dining areas and a living room set beneath coffered ceilings. An indoor-outdoor family room adjoins a chef’s kitchen with a 12-foot center island.
Upstairs, the master suite expands to a spa bathroom and spacious deck with mountain views. On the lower level, an entertainment area opens to a gym, kitchenette and three bedrooms.
Mature trees surround a grassy back yard.
Nealon, 65, appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in the 1980s and ’90s and had a five-year stint on the show hosting the “Weekend Update” sketch. He currently stars in the sitcom “Man with a Plan,” and his past credits include shows “Weeds” and “Hiller and Diller.”
Yeagley, 48, has credits that include the sitcoms “Rules of Engagement” and “Parks and Recreation.” This year, she appeared on “Single Parents.”
Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown and her former husband, producer Stephen Belafonte, have sold their marital home in the Hollywood Hills for $5.55 million.
That’s about $3.45 million less than what the former couple, who divorced in 2017, sought when they first listed the four-story home two years ago at $8.995 million. They bought the place in 2014 for $4.34 million.
Built in 1928 and redesigned in 2016, the contemporary has more than 4,600 square feet of glitzy living space, including four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, Baccarat fixtures, high ceilings, custom lighting, a bar, a theater and a game room. As one might expect of a pop superstar, there’s also a recording studio.
The floor plan was reimagined to create open-concept spaces while maximizing natural light. The master suite spans the entire top floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows on each level take in city light and treetop views.
Outside, tall hedges and wood fencing conceal a swimming pool with a spa, an outdoor dining area and a built-in barbecue. A flat-screen television is anchored above the pool area.
Brown, 44, gained notice in the 1990s as a member of the Spice Girls and later released the solo albums “Hot” and “L.A. State of Mind.” She has served as a judge on such competition shows as “America’s Got Talent,” “The X Factor U.K.,” and “The X Factor Australia.”
Belafonte, 44, produced “Mel B: It’s a Scary World” (2010) for television. His film work includes “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call — New Orleans” (2009) and “Mutant Chronicles” (2008).
The longtime family home of the late Rose Marie, who co-starred in “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” has come on the market in the Chisholm Estates neighborhood of Van Nuys at $1.049 million.
The 1949 ranch classic, with many of the original features and decor from the era, is where Marie lived for nearly 70 years.
The actress-singer often entertained at the single-story house, hosting the likes of Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vincent Price and Van Dyke in the wood-paneled saloon, which features a custom bar. On one particular occasion, Ball and Arnaz performed a scene from their 1953 film “The Long, Long Trailer” in the home’s living room.
Mary Tyler Moore, Burl Ives, Betty White and Tim Conway were among other frequent guests.
The 2,856-square-foot house retains such charm points as wood-beamed ceilings, a natural stone fireplace and picture ledges. Rich wood flooring throughout is original. In the dining room, which sits off the eat-in kitchen, there’s a wood-burning brick hearth/barbecue and a bay window with built-in seating.
The master bedroom — one of four bedrooms and three bathrooms — features a fireplace and a dressing room. A corner picture window takes in a view of the leafy backyard.
The home sits on about a third of an acre and has a retro free-form swimming pool with a changing room and a small grove of fruit trees. Elsewhere is an attached two-car garage.
Marie, who died two years ago at 94, got her start in show business at just 3 years old when she took to the stage as child singer “Baby Rose Marie.” By the age of 5, she was a full-fledged radio star, appearing on NBC and her own radio show, which ran for five years.
After more than three decades of Hollywood work already behind her, she landed perhaps her most identifiable role as comedy writer Sally Rogers on “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” She later appeared as Myrna Gibbon on “The Doris Day Show” and was a panelist on “The Hollywood Squares” for more than a decade.
