A 1937 estate in Holmby Hills owned by radio and TV host Art Linkletter in the 1950s, Oscar-winning composer Henry Mancini in the 1990s and former Hollywood Park owner Marge Everett until 2005 has sold for $13.2 million.

The Georgian-style traditional house includes nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms in about 12,000 square feet. The gated two-story has a formal entry with a sweeping spiral staircase, a paneled library with a hidden door to the wine cellar, a 50-foot-long screening room and staff quarters.

The 2,500-square-foot master bedroom wing contains a sitting room, his and hers bathrooms, four of the home’s eight fireplaces, a sauna and a terrace overlooking the grounds.

The remodeled property originally came on the market in May 2008 at $27.5 million and previously sold in 2006 for $10.25 million, according to public records.
