The Lowdown: Actor/flipper Jeremy Renner picked up this property for $7 million in 2010 and rebuilt it with architecture by Phillip Vertoch and design by Renner's frequent partner Kristoffer Winters. The result? A "roaring 20's Art Deco style home fit for a 21st century Howard Hughes." Renner says that each flip is bigger and braver than the one before; color us curious to see what'll follow this nutso place. Update 2:30pm: The LA Times reports that the buyer was none other than British luxury developer Nick Candy (behind the failed 9900 Wilshire redevelopment) Update 8/20: Actually, a rep for Candy & Candy Limited tells us now that the buyer is actually Nick's brother/business partner Christian Candy.

The Lowdown: You know an agent is stretching when the phrase "rare singe story home" appears in the listing. This 1950 house next to the Los Angeles Country Club was sold in probate as a probable teardown. According to Redfin, the 0.45-acre property was assessed at $542,000, so it clearly hadn't been on the market in a loooong time.
