Top sales: June’s priciest home sales

By Neal J. Leitereg

$11.5 million — Brentwood

Prolific Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer and his wife, author Linda Bruckheimer, sold their International-style home of more than two decades for $400,000 less than the asking price. The buyer, per property records, was a trust.

The steel and concrete residence, once owned by L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan, was designed by Case Study architect Thornton Abell and completed in 1956. It features such modernist staples as clean lines, high ceilings and walls of steel-framed windows that take in leafy views.

Within more than 9,000 square feet of the interior are a skylight-topped library/study, an eat-in kitchen, and a media room. Including a separate studio/guesthouse, there are seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four fireplaces with massive hearths.

A swimming pool and spa, ponds, lush landscaping and mature trees make up the gated grounds.

Mike Deasy and Sara Clephane of Deasy/Penner were the listing agents.
