Actress and author Victoria Rowell has put her Hollywood Hills home up for sale at $2.599 million.
The Beachwood Canyon-area house of nearly 4,400 square feet sits on more than a quarter-acre lot with a swimming pool. Built in 1923, the four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom Mediterranean features terraces; city, canyon and mountain views; and Italian-style gardens with mature trees and privacy hedges. The house includes a library, a media room, a family room, an updated kitchen and a breakfast room.
Rowell, 52, is known by soap fans for her long-running stint on the "The Young and the Restless" (1990-2007). She also costarred on "Diagnosis Murder" (1993-2002). She wrote "The Women Who Raised Me," a memoir about growing up in foster care, and "Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva: A Novel," which is under consideration for a prime-time series.
Rowell is selling her longtime home to be in New York and Atlanta with her husband of nearly two years, visual artist Radcliffe Bailey.
Gary Bergevin of Prudential California Realty in Los Feliz is the listing agent.
Buyer falls under home's spell
The home of the late Sol Saks, creator of the sitcom "Bewitched," has been sold in Sherman Oaks for $1.2 million.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom mid-century house of nearly 2,900 square feet sits on a flat half-acre lot with mature landscaping.
Saks, who died in April at 100, wrote the pilot script for "Bewitched," collecting royalties for the series that ran from 1964 to 1972 but never writing another episode. Other writing credits include the screenplay for "Walk, Don't Run" (1966) and for the series "Mr. Adams and Eve" (1957-58).
Philip Feldman with Nelson Shelton & Associates of Beverly Hills had the listing. Matt Fonda of Coldwell Banker Studio City represented the buyer.
