A historic June Street mansion recently sold for more than the asking price for $7.05 million, according to the LA Times. Located on the Wilshire Country Club golf course, the estate was once the home Oscar-winning film director Francis Ford Coppola, as well as Grammy-winning pop star Ariana Grande, according to the Times.
“Coppola owned the Tudor home in the early 1980s, and Grande leased it in the early 2010s, using a recording studio in the basement. Public records show the property leased for $17,900 a month in 2010,” reported the Times.
Listing broker Sheri Bienstock noted the home was designed by architect L.G. Scherer, who collaborated with Paul Williams on the Sunset Plaza Apartments. Scherer is also noted for his design of Marlene Dietrich’s Mediterranean Revival estate on the Los Angeles Country Club golf course in the Little Holmby area, as well as Ernest Borgnine’s home in Beverly Hills.
Windsor Square resident and broker Lisa Hutchins represented the buyer in the sale.
