Frank and Jamie McCourt have bought several area homes since 2004
The separation of Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his wife, Jamie, the team's chief executive -- and what that may mean for the baseball franchise -- is the subject of a story today at latimes.com. The pair have done their share of real-estate shopping since they moved to Los Angeles, buying two neighboring properties in Holmby Hills and two next door to each other in Malibu.
The Holmby Hills residence, a 20,000-square-foot villa that had been listed at $29 million, was purchased in April 2004.
Six months later an adjacent French country fixer of 8,385 square feet for $6.5 million was purchased, according to Multiple Listing Service records.
In August 2007, the John Launter-designed Segel Residence in Malibu was bought for $27,250,272 from actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette, and a beachfront bungalow next door in early 2008 for $18,975,000.
A check Wednesday revealed that none of these properties had been listed on the MLS for sale.
