Debra Messing’s Bel-Air Sale Is ‘Smash’ Hit
Debra Messing may be struggling to land her musical on Broadway in the NBC hit show “Smash,” but off screen she’s closing the deal on her Bel-Air home.
In a month’s time, the actress has sold her 6,410-square-foot estate for $11.4 million, the Los Angeles Times reports. Located at 10475 Bellagio Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90077, the home was originally listed in mid-January for an asking price of $11.995 million.
The former “Will & Grace” co-star lived in the Los Angeles home with ex-husband Daniel Zelman and son Roman after purchasing the property from actress Renee Zellweger for $7 million in 2003.
Paul R. Williams, known for being the first black architect admitted to the American Institute of Architects, designed the Bel-Air estate in 1937. The home is traditional in style but luxurious in its amenities. In addition to 6 bedrooms and 8 baths, the listing advertises a pool and private cabana, his-and-her baths, large walk-in closets and separate guest quarters.
Messing is currently living in New York City, where “Smash” was filmed before its second-season premiered on Feb. 5. In the show, Messing joins Christian Borle for several scenes in character Tom Levitt’s sophisticated Upper East Side apartment.
Coldwell Banker Residential of Beverly Hills North brokered the sale.
