A mas­sive man­sion for wrestler known as ‘The Miz’

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Real Estate - By Neal J. Leitereg and Jack Flemming

Michael Mizanin, the former World Wrestling En­ter­tain­ment cham­pion who per­forms un­der the name “The Miz,” and his wife, pro­fes­sional wrestler Maryse Mizanin, have slammed down $6.4 mil­lion on an English manor-style home in West­lake Vil­lage.

A gated en­try opens to the stone-clad res­i­dence,

which sits on more than an acre with a cus­tom swim­ming pool and spa, for­mal gar­dens and ex­pan­sive lawns.

In­side, the 10,400 square feet of liv­ing space in­cludes a two-story en­try, a den with a wet bar, a pan­eled game room and a movie theater, six be­d­rooms, eight bath­rooms and two pow­der rooms.

Artis­tic wall­pa­per, elab­o­rate fire­place man­tels and in­laid wood floors set

a re­splen­dent tone in the grand liv­ing and din­ing rooms.

The kitchen is out­fit­ted with a dec­o­ra­tive tile back­splash, cof­fered ceil­ings and com­mer­cial-grade ap­pli­ances. A cir­cu­lar break­fast nook sits off the kitchen. There’s also a wine cel­lar.

Large ter­races, an out­door din­ing area, a built-in bar­be­cue and a cus­tom swim­ming pool ex­tend the liv­ing space out­doors.

A sep­a­rate guest­house and an art stu­dio are be­hind the pool area. An of­fice sits above the eight­car garage.

Michael Mizanin, 38, gained fame in the early 2000s as a cast mem­ber on MTV’s “The Real World” and other “Real World/ Road Rules” shows.

He joined WWE in 2004 after fin­ish­ing as run­ner-up on the wrestling re­al­ity se­ries “Tough Enough” and has won 18 cham­pi­onship bouts in­clud­ing the WWE Cham­pi­onship in 2010.

Maryse Mizanin, 36, has twice won the WWE Di­vas Cham­pi­onship.

The former “To­tal Di­vas” cast mem­ber cur­rently ap­pears with her hus­band on the USA Net­work show “Miz & Mrs.”

MONTECITO ES­TATE GETS A TRIM

Rob Lowe has sweet­ened the deal in Montecito. With no tak­ers at $47 mil­lion, the ac­tor has trimmed the price of his 10,000-square-foot man­sion down to $42.5 mil­lion.

The coastal com­mu­nity has long been a haven for celebri­ties look­ing to spread out, with stars such as Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Bridges all call­ing the area home over the years.

Lowe’s prop­erty is no dif­fer­ent, span­ning 3.4 acres of man­i­cured grounds at the foothills of the Santa Ynez Moun­tains.

A host of ex­tras com­ple­ment the main res­i­dence, in­clud­ing a two-bed­room guest­house, 800-square­foot ca­bana, swim­ming pool, koi pond, gazebo and ten­nis court.

The East Coast-in­spired home wears a crisp white ex­te­rior with plan­ta­tion shut­ters and a column­lined en­try.

In­side, the vibe con­tin­ues with cof­fered ceil­ings, cus­tom mill­work, hand­made mold­ings, bay win­dows and hard­wood floors adorn­ing the de­signer-done liv­ing spa­ces.

In ad­di­tion to six be­d­rooms and 11 bath­rooms, there are for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing rooms, a din­ing room with pan­eled walls, two kitchens, a wet bar, a wine room, a li­brary, a bil­liards room and a movie theater.

Mul­ti­ple sets of French doors ex­pand to a ve­randa with a fire­place, lounge and TV. Above that, a sec­ond­story deck takes in sweep­ing views of the rolling lawns and ocean.

Lowe, 55, who is mar­ried to Sheryl Berkoff, has scores of tele­vi­sion and film credits in­clud­ing “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Broth­ers & Sis­ters,” and “The West Wing,” for which he re­ceived Golden Globe and Prime­time Emmy Award nom­i­na­tions.

More re­cently, he starred in the med­i­cal drama “Code Black” and the com­edy-drama se­ries “Wild Bill.”

CASH­ING IN A LONG­TIME CHIP

Os­car-win­ning ac­tor Jon Voight of “Com­ing Home” and “Run­away Train” is look­ing to cash in his slice of the 90210.

The ac­tor’s 3.3-acre prop­erty in the Bev­erly Hills Post Of­fice area is on the mar­ket for $19.975 mil­lion.

It’s quite a sum for a mostly empty lot, but there’s plenty of prece­dent for un­de­vel­oped acreage sell­ing in the area.

Last month, mu­sic and movie mogul David Gef­fen shelled out $30 mil­lion for a va­cant acre in a nearby and ul­tra-ex­clu­sive en­clave known as Bil­lion­aires’ Row.

Voight’s es­tate is in a slightly less pres­ti­gious spot, perched be­tween Bev­erly Glen and Bev­erly Park. Gated and fenced, the prop­erty is ap­proached by a cus­tom brick-and-flag­stone drive­way.

The mostly flat lot con­tains spa­cious lawns, as well as a two-story home with an up­per-level bal­cony. Down be­low, a deck de­scends to a pa­tio with a pool.

Voight, 80, re­ceived Academy Award nom­i­na­tions for the films “Mid­night Cow­boy,” “Run­away Train” and “Ali,” and he won the Os­car for lead ac­tor for his role as a para­plegic Viet­nam vet­eran in 1978’s “Com­ing Home.” His other roles in­clude “The Champ,” “The Rain­maker,” “Heat” and “Na­tional Treasure.”

HOP­ING TO PRO­DUCE A NEW TENANT

Film and tele­vi­sion pro­ducer James Brubaker and his wife, Marcy, have put their home in Bev­erly Hills up for long-term lease at $22,500 a month.

The English Tu­dor-style house was de­signed by lo­cal ar­chi­tect James Dick­a­son and com­pleted in 1930.

The 6,227 square feet of liv­ing space in­cludes a foyer and a step-down liv­ing room with a fire­place. A li­brary/den filled with walls of built-ins, wain­scot­ing and a fire­place sits off the foyer.

A wrap-around bar high­lights the fam­ily room, which has beamed ceil­ings and French doors that open to the back­yard.

The chef ’s kitchen is out­fit­ted with an is­land and pro­fes­sional-grade ap­pli­ances.

There’s also a wine cel­lar and an el­e­va­tor.

A to­tal of five be­d­rooms and 5.5 bath­rooms in­cludes a vaulted-ceil­ing master suite with dual bath­rooms and walk-in clos­ets.

Out­side, the hedged and fenced prop­erty fea­tures a stone-clad cov­ered pa­tio with heaters and a fire­place.

A small pond/wa­ter fea­ture, lawn and de­tached garage fill out the grounds.

Brubaker has credits span­ning more than three decades, in­clud­ing “Rocky III,” “Rocky IV” and the “Nutty Pro­fes­sor” films. He re­ceived an Emmy Award nom­i­na­tion and won a Di­rec­tors Guild of Amer­ica Award for the 1998 tele­vi­sion movie "Gia," star­ring An­gelina Jolie.

JUST TAKE A LIT­TLE OFF THE TOP, PLEASE

Academy Award-win­ning ac­tress Meryl Streep has put her pent­house in down­town New York back up for sale at a re­duced price of $18.25 mil­lion.

That’s a 26% price cut from when the unit at the River Lofts, a full-floor con­do­minium build­ing in Tribeca, was first brought to mar­ket for $24.6 mil­lion in Au­gust 2018. More re­cently, it had been listed for $19.75 mil­lion.

Bor­dered on three sides by a land­scaped ter­race, the unit fea­tures an open floor plan, Brazil­ian wal­nut floors, an Ital­ian-de­signed kitchen and a study with a built-in desk.

Floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows and glass doors take in ex­pan­sive views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Lib­erty and the Chrysler and Em­pire State build­ings.

The me­dia room has pock­et­ing doors that can be closed for ad­di­tional pri­vacy.

The master suite is out­fit­ted with two bath­rooms, a sit­ting room and two walk-in clos­ets.

In all, there are four be­d­rooms, four bath­rooms and a pow­der room in 3,950 square feet of liv­ing space.

Ameni­ties in the fullser­vice build­ing in­clude a gym, a bi­cy­cle room, a gar­den and an on-site garage. A keyed el­e­va­tor pro­vides di­rect ac­cess to the pent­house.

Streep, 70, re­ceived Os­cars for her work in “The Iron Lady” (2011), “So­phie’s Choice” (1982) and “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979).

This year, the ver­sa­tile and busy ac­tress joined the cast of HBO’s “Big Lit­tle Lies” and ap­pears in the Steven Soder­bergh film “The Laun­dro­mat.”

Former WWE cham­pion Michael “The Miz” Mizanin and his wife, wrestler Maryse Mizanin, have paid $6.4 mil­lion for an English Manor-style home in West­lake Vil­lage, Calif. The 10,400-square-foot home fea­tures a two-story en­try with sweep­ing stair­cases that opens to scaled for­mal rooms. Among liv­ing spa­ces is a pan­eled game room, a movie theater and grand liv­ing and din­ing rooms. The den/fam­ily room has a mas­sive wet bar. (Jeff El­son/TNS)
