For $7.15 million you can live like Trump

- LAUREN BEALE

Master brander Donald Trump has sold his custom estate in Rancho Palos Verdes for $7.15 million.

Located at Trump National Golf Course, which he owns and operates, the 11,000-square-foot Mediterran­ean mansion features a game room with a bar that is a replica of the one at the course restaurant.

The five-bedroom, ninebathro­om home, built in 2010, has a great-room entry, marble flooring and wall-to-ceiling sliding doors that disappear from view. The kitchen covers 1,000 square feet — bigger than a typical two-bedroom condo being built in Langford these days. It’s even bigger than a typical three-bedroom single family home in the 1950s, before second bathrooms became the norm.

A wine room is enclosed behind glass, and off the master bedroom are a patio and fire pit. An infinity pool sits in the courtyard.

Trump, 65, is chairman and chief executive of his own real estate developmen­t company; founder of Trump Entertainm­ent Resorts; and star and producer of The Apprentice (2004 to present), on which contestant­s vie for a chance to work for him.

The New Yorker splits his time in Los Angeles between his home in Beverly Hills and his work in Rancho Palos Verdes, where he has completed five houses and sold three. The golf course community has lots for 75 homes.

He listed the mansion last year at $12 million.

Home once owned by the Psycho girl

The onetime Beverly Hills-area home of actress Janet Leigh is on the market at $3.75 million.

Built in 1976, the oceanview house is set on a promontory of almost a quarter hectare with a swimming pool and tennis court. The 4,432-square-foot house features high ceilings, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Leigh, who died in 2004 at age 77, starred in Touch of Evil (1958) and The Manchurian Candidate (1962) but is perhaps best remembered in film for her murder in the shower scene of Psycho (1960).

The property last changed hands in 2010 for $2.8 million.

Beverly Hills trophy home up for grabs

Former Yahoo Inc. Chief Executive Terry Semel and his wife, Jane, have listed their estate in Beverly Hills at $12.75 million.

The 1987 contempora­ry, designed by Robert Offenhause­r, features a twostorey entry with a skylight and floor-to-ceiling glass and iron doors. There are vaulted ceilings, gallery- size walls, four bedrooms, 6 1 ⁄ bathrooms and 8,800

2 square feet of living space. The master bedroom suite, with a sitting area, fireplace, dual bathrooms and dual dressing rooms, opens to a covered patio. A detached screening room includes a kitchen, shower, sauna and steam room.

On nearly a third of a hectare, the estate has a gated, circular driveway and a swimming pool.

Semel, 68, left Yahoo in 2007 after six years at the helm. He is also the former chairman of Warner Bros.

Musician T Bone Burnett has sold his Brentwood home for $2.75 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

The Cape Cod-inspired house, built in 1945, fea- tures four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,090 square feet of living space. French doors off the family room, which has a bar, open to a garden. There are a swimming pool and a spa.

The guitarist and record producer, 63, has worked with Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp and Elton John, among others. He has won multiple Grammys and last year shared an Oscar with Ryan Bingham for original song ( The Weary Kind) for the film Crazy Heart.

Ex-dodgers president hoping it’s a hit

Former Dodgers president Dennis Mannion has his estate in La Canada Flintridge up for sale at $3.3 million.

Set on 0.8 hectares, the Spanish-style house offers views of Pasadena, Glendale and Los Angeles. The 5,019-square-foot main house, built in 1960 and designed for entertaini­ng, features walls of glass, an oversize living room, a family room, an office, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

A two-room studio of 781 square feet includes a three-quarter bathroom. Among outdoor amenities are a swimming pool, a spa and a barbecue area with a fireplace.

Mannion, who started with the Dodgers in 2007 as executive vice-president, left the team a year ago. He is president of the Detroit Pistons and Palace Sports & Entertainm­ent.

Public records show he bought the property in 2009 for $3.1 million.

Hockey player closes up beach house

Two-time Stanley Cup winner Oleg Tverdovsky has sold his Manhattan Beach house for $2,065,000.

Built in 2006, the Spanish-style house opens to a wood-burning fireplace in the backyard.

Beams from a Virginia farmhouse more than 100 years old were used in the vaulted ceiling of the master bedroom. The 3,350square-foot home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The Ukrainian-born defenceman, 35, played with the Los Angeles Kings and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, among other National Hockey League teams. He now plays in the internatio­nal Kontinenta­l Hockey League.

Public records show he bought the property in 2007 for $2.49 million. He also owns a house in Bel-air, purchased last year for $5.4 million.
