The house hit the MLS on July 6.
Built in 1926, the five-bedroom house has five and a half baths, a master bedroom with a period bathroom, two junior bedroom suites and a family room. Outdoor features on the 1.81-acre property include rolling lawns, a playhouse, an ascending garden with spectacular city views, a large motor court, a long private drive, and a detached guest house with two bedrooms, two baths and a kitchen.
Obviously, Sweet is not as well known as the mansion’s prior owners. Records show that Sweet and her writer-producer husband, Tom Palmer, purchased the house in 2005 from Sagal for $5,510,000. Sagal had purchased the house in 2004 from Elfman for $4,700,000, and Elfman had purchased it from Madonna in 2000 for about $4 million, according to public records and news accounts. Madonna appears to have purchased the house in 1995.
