Broadcast syndication company head Byron Allen seems to be doing his part to help the Westside real estate market. The stand-up comic and TV show host bought an estate in Beverly Hills for $17 million and is now listing a place in the Hollywood Hills West area for $8.995 million.
The contemporary mansion he bought sits behind gates on more than an acre. A two-story entry leads to a living room with retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to an infinity pool and a terrace. The nearly 13,000 square feet of living space includes a library, a dining room that can seat 18, a bar, a den, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It previously sold in 2007 for $15.9 million.
The house Allen is selling is a Richard Landry-designed contemporary, built in 1962, in the celebrity-populated Bird Streets area. With 3,540 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms, the house features high ceilings and expansive city views. The third of an acre property includes a motor court, swimming pool and a spa. Public records show he bought the house in late 2003 for $3.2 million.
Allen, 51, produces and distributes shows through his Entertainment Studios. He is executive producer for "Comics Unleased" (2006-present) and the pilot of "The First Family," a comedy-drama about a black family in the White House.____________________
