Actress Jane Fonda and music producer Richard Perry have bought an estate in Beverly Hills for $7.3 million. The Trousdale Estates property was the longtime home of Emmy-winning television director John Rich.
The two-story home, built in 1961 and completely renovated, features a glass elevator, vaulted ceilings, three fireplaces, four bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and more than 7,500 square feet of living space. There are photovoltaic panels, a solar-heated swimming pool and other energy-saving amenities.
Fonda, 74, won Oscars in 1972 for "Klute" and in 1979 for "Coming Home." She will star in the ABC comedy "Now What?" and will play First Lady Nancy Reagan in the upcoming film "The Butler."
Perry, 70, has produced albums for such singing stars as Rod Stewart and Carly Simon. Fonda and Perry started dating several years ago.
Rich, who died in January at 86, worked on such iconic '60s shows as "All in the Family," "Bonanza" and "Gilligan's Island."
The three-quarter-acre-plus property, sold for the first time in more than four decades, was listed at $11.9 million when it first came on the market in June 2011.
James Muske of Coldwell Banker was the listing agent. Zachary Deutsch and Gabriela Effron of Rodeo Realty represented the buyers, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
