‘Jeffersons,’ ‘All in the Family’ Producer Norman Lear Lists Brentwood Home for $40M

Published: November 9, 2019 | By: American Luxury Staff

Prominent television producer and political activist Norman Lear relisted his famously recognizable Southern California estate this autumn for $39.995 million. Lear has owned the property since 1988, when he shelled out 6.5 million clams for it; he first listed it for $55 million in September of 2015.

The estate’s substantial size—around 8 acres in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood—allow for a lengthy drive before reaching the large motor court with a fountain centerpiece and the main house, a 14,000 square-foot contemporary traditional.

The interiors of the main house are unassuming aside from the sheer scale they collectively represent; flashy ornament is generally avoided in the home, while light, space and craftsmanship details set the tenor. Details include a remarkable variance of woods employed, a broad spectrum of warm and cool tones, and a huge amount of glass. Overall, the interiors are upbeat, literate, and just a little bit bohemian.

The property’s exterior meanders along its acreage, incorporating a storybook guest house, terra-cotta-tiled pool area, 35-car garage, tennis court sculpture garden, lawns, and plantings as it unfolds.

Lear and partner Bud Yorkin had their collective finger on the pulse of 1970s-era Homo Americanus. Their string of sitcom successes during the ‘Me’ decade included ‘The Jeffersons’, ‘All in the Family’, ‘Sanford and Son’, and ‘Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman’.
