Actor Jim Belushi Offers His Brentwood Park Home for $38.5 Million
Represented by Affiliate Hilton & Hyland, rare double lot for the 14,200 square-foot Italian-style villa evokes the ambience of Southern France or Northern Italy
Los Angeles, CA - Jim Belushi, star of “According to Jim,” the classic film “Curly Sue,” and actor and writer for “Saturday Night Live,” has listed his home, sited on 1-1/3 private acres, for $38.5 million. Hilton & Hyland, the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Beverly Hills is representing the property. Drew Fenton and Bjorn Farrugia have the listing.
Architect Oscar Shamamian and designer Michael Smith collaborated to create the masterpiece. Off a cobblestone driveway, and generous motor court, this estate offers six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, including detached guest and pool houses.
The home’s details were sourced the world over: reclaimed roof tiles from Venezuela, reclaimed fireplace mantles and tile floors of Italian terra cotta, custom ironwork, Moroccan glazed bathroom tiles and hand-hewn American hardwood flooring. Public rooms finished in Venetian plaster exude a relaxed elegance.
The kitchen is welcoming, expansive and framed by a lovely archway. A whimsical hidden door leads to a private office and the basement includes a large screening room and an owner’s retreat with wine room, sauna and steam room. The master suite includes a sumptuous bath, bucolic views, a pampering dressing room and closet, plus a private stairway leading directly to the Jacuzzi and cold plunge grotto.
The 60-foot long pool deck is framed in travertine from Turkey. Two fireplaces with intimate seating nooks, alfresco dining areas, fountains, arbors, green expanses, walking paths and porticos further define the outdoor spaces.
Mr. Belushi and his wife raised their two children in this home. Their children are now both college-aged so the couple is looking to downsize.
