Peach home, but watch out for Pitts
This Los Feliz home, now listed at $4.7 million, was completely renovated by the current owners, who purchased it from the estate of actor Paul Winfield.
Winfield had brought the property in 1990. His family was so pleased with the redo that they gave the current owners three works of art from the late actor’s collection.
And here’s a bonus: There are some botanical gardens on the grounds that overlook a home belonging to actor Brad Pitt.
The home has four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in 3,800 square feet.
Winfield, who died at 62 in 2004, was an Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated actor known for his portrayal of a Louisiana sharecropper during the Great Depression in the film “Sounder” (1972) and as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1978 miniseries “King.”
Aaron Kirman of Hilton & Highland, Christie’s Great Estates, Beverly Hills has the listing.
