After spending nearly two months on the market, the column-studded, classically inspired four-bedroom at 2010 Jackson Street just changed hands for $11.5 million, though it listed for a much more ambitious $15 million. Designed by architect Ted Moulton and built in 1961, the home was originally just one story high, and served as a curious bachelor pad for George W. Kleiser, a retired advertising exec. Later on, architect George Livermore came along and added a second story, bringing the bedroom total up to four.
The home had trouble finding a buyer with its mix of Greco-Roman statuary and a more appropriately 60s penchant for wall-to-wall carpeting. In April the property took a price chop down to $12.5 million. The listing painted it as a bit of a renovation job, pointing out the possibilities to remake the home within the existing shell. Whatever the new owners' plans are, we're sure they'll be needing some heat lamps for all those cavernous outdoor spaces.
