The homes of film stars, a cloth­ing mogul and the cre­ator of “Gilligan’s Is­land” were among the top residential real es­tate sales in the greater Los An­ge­les area last week. $15,947,000 — Han­cock Park

Ac­tors Me­lanie Grif­fith and An­to­nio Ban­deras set a price record for the area with the sale of their mar­i­tal home in the 600 block of South Muir­field Road. At slightly less than $15.95 mil­lion, the sale bests the pre­vi­ous high-wa­ter mark held by an 11,336square-foot home in the 300 block of South Hud­son Av­enue that sold last year for $11 mil­lion. De­signed by Hoover Dam ar­chi­tect Gor­don B. Kaufmann, the Ital­ian Re­vival-style home fea­tures hand-sten­ciled cof­fered ceil­ings, a twos­tory ban­quet hall, an el­e­va­tor, a record­ing stu­dio, 13 bed­rooms and 11 bath­rooms within 15,110 square feet of space. Grif­fith and Ban­deras, who are es­tranged, bought the main house in 1999 for $4.2 mil­lion and in 2000 paid $1.3 mil­lion for an ad­ja­cent lot to cre­ate the 1.5-acre prop­erty. Brett Lawyer of Hil­ton & Hy­land, an af­fil­i­ate of Christie’s In­ter­na­tional Real Es­tate, was the list­ing agent. Jonah Wil­son, also with Hil­ton & Hy­land, rep­re­sented the buyer.

Set be­hind gates in the 1200 block of Tower Road, the up­dated 1930s villa in­cludes an up­dated kitchen with cus­tom cab­i­netry, a den with a half-moon-shaped win­dow and a glass-en­closed wine cel­lar. A cen­tral court­yard, a swimming pool, a mo­tor court and for­mal gar­dens make up the more than half-an-acre site. Stephen Shapiro and Max Shapiro of West­side Es­tate Agency were the list­ing agents. Gre­gory Dean of Dean Co. rep­re­sented the buyer.

Bardt, who sat on the board of di­rec­tors for the Los An­ge­les Dodgers for three decades, sold in about three weeks. It went for $9.6 mil­lion, or $220,000 more than the ask­ing price. Built in 1925, the up­dated Tra­di­tion­al­style home on nearly half an acre has a two-story en­try, an of­fice, for­mal liv­ing and din­ing rooms, six bed­rooms and six bath­rooms within 6,173 square feet of space.

Carl­ton sold for $8.525 mil­lion, one of the high­est home sale prices his­tor­i­cally in the area. Built in 2009, the grand Mediter­ranean home is distin­guished by 10-foot arched glass doors, wrought iron de­tails and a grand hall­way set be­neath a domed sky­light. A court­yard with a spa, a for­mal gar­den and a cov­ered pa­tio make up the grounds, which front a 120-foot stretch of wa­ter­way. Sean Stanfield of HOM Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty had the list­ing. Spencer Sny­der of Na­tion­wide Real Es­tate Ex­ecs rep­re­sented the buyer.

$7.2 mil­lion — Bev­erly Hills

The long­time Trous­dalearea home of late tele­vi­sion writer and pro­ducer Sher­wood Schwartz, cre­ator of “Gilligan’s Is­land” and “The Brady Bunch,” sold for $7.2 mil­lion, or $250,000 more than the ask­ing price. De­signed by ar­chi­tects Don­ald Park and Wal­lace Ben­ton and built in 1969, the 5,500square-foot house is high­lighted by a free-flow­ing floor plan with sky­lights, in­door planters and orig­i­nal ter­razzo floors. Walls of glass win­dows and slid­ing doors take in panoramic views. Lo­cated in the 1800 block of Carla Ridge, the home came on the mar­ket in May for the first time in 43 years and was un­der con­tract to sell in three days. In the early 1970s, it went for $275,000.
