Mrs. Doubtfire Writer Selling Only Greene & Greene in Bev Hills

New, 24 comments

Number 14 on Beverly Hills's historic properties register, this pedigreed Craftsman, is actually a transplant: In 1909, Pasadena-based architect brothers Greene & Greene designed what's now called the Anthony-Kerry House for Packard dealer/pioneering gas station owner Earle C. Anthony in what would now be Koreatown (just south of Wilshire on Berendo). In the early 1920s, Anthony decided to put apartments on the property, which left the house's fate in limbo; it was saved in 1923 when it was purchased by silent film star Norman Kerry and his wife, who moved it to this Bev Hills location. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the current sellers are also in the movie business: Leslie Dixon and Tom Ropelewski are screenwriters whose individual credits include the modern cross-dressing classic Mrs. Doubtfire, and who together wrote Look Who's Talking Now. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom Craftsman is in excellent condition thanks to a number of "careful renovations and restorations" and has a swimming pool. It's asking $8.995 million.
