The Riviera home of late television writer and producer Steven Bochco has sold for $24.95 million—marking the highest sale in Pacific Palisades thus far in 2023.
“The illustrious Steven Bochco Estate, an architectural marvel crafted by renowned architect Paul Williams, has found its new owner,” according to a statement shared with the Palisadian-Post.
The home, which was originally listed for $35 million in August 2022, features seven bedroom and 11 bathrooms, spread out over 10,853 square feet. It is nestled on a double lot, which spans 1.4 acres.
“Through the gates and surrounded by an irreplaceable masonry wall and lush landscaping,” the listing boasted, “the level of privacy is unmatched with park-like grounds that include an incredible pool and spa, cabana, guest house, expansive yard, and tennis court.”
Described as having an “entertainer-friendly layout,” with a “floor plan that flows seamlessly into each room with an abundance of natural light,” the estate recently underwent renovations. The home was originally built in 1937, with “tree top” views.
“The gourmet chef’s kitchen, the dignified library, the formal living and family rooms designed for hosting, and the private guest apartment wing—all carry forward their stories with the estate’s transition,” the statement continued.
A primary suite features vaulted ceilings, with dual bathrooms and walk-in closets.
The listing was held by Aaron Kirman, Dalton Gomez and Morgan Trent of AKG | Christie’s International Real Estate.
Bochco, a 10-time Emmy Award winner, was known as a producer and writer of hit television shows, including “Hill Street Blues,” “Doogie Howser,” “NYPD Blue” and more. He was living in the Palisades at the time of his death in April 2018, following a leukemia diagnosis.
Bochco and his wife Dayna hosted Hillary Clinton’s first Southern California fundraising visit as a presidential candidate at the home in May 2015. A group of 200 supporters gathered at the time, raising $800,000 for the Hillary for America fund.
“As this chapter concludes, the Steven Bochco Estate stands as a testament to architectural grandeur, leaving an indelible mark on the prime Los Angeles landscape,” the statement read.
