YOUR MAMAS UPDATE: Your Mama originally thought this house had been purchased by Tobey Maguire (see here).
However, this house was in fact purchased by uber producer John Wells and his wifey Marilyn who are moving from a lovely Spanish Style house in the Laughlin Park area of Los Feliz.
Your Mama hears the Wells' house, which was once part of the Charlie Chaplin estate and later bought by the legendary filmmaker Cecil B. De Mille who used it as a business address, was sold for just over $6,000,000 and was never officially on the market. We also hear the new owner is another bigwig in "the bizness" named Mary Parent.
We are going to refrain from discussing and picking apart the interior details and move on to other celebrity retreats and hideouts.
