Your Mama Hears...

...from the very plugged in high end real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyak that film and television writer/director/producer Judd Apatow is fixin' to custom build a major residential monument to his Tinseltown success on a one acre flag lot that overlooks the manicured golf course at the ritzy Riviera Country Club* in Santa Monica (CA).

Whatever they are building on the vacant parcel they picked up last June (2012) for $8,600,000 it must really be something, children, because in July 2009 the Hollywood supernova and his actress wife Leslie Mann shelled out $18,250,000 in an off-market deal for a walled and gated three-quarter acre mini-compound in a particularly posh pocked of Brentwood that includes a 10,000-plus square foot main house with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, 3,500 (or so) square feet out outdoor entertaining space and a 17-seat screening room in a substantial poolside pavilion.

Mister Apatow still owns his Beverly Hills (Post Office) starter house, a 4,356 square foot house just below Mulholland Drive near Benedict Canyon that he picked up in late 2005 for $1,656,000, and in October 2010 he sold a just over 6,000 square foot and very un-funny mini-mansion on a gated Pacific Palisades cul-de-sac for $5,260,000.

Mister Apatow produced the hit comedy Bridesmaid (2011), he currently executive produces the cable tee-vee sensation Girls and is currently at work producing the next Steve Carell and Will Ferrell movie vehicle Anchoman: The Legend Continues. Missus Apatow—that would be Miz Mann—frequently snags roles in Mister Apatow's movies but has also landed roles in a number of non-Apatow projects including Sofia Coppola's not yet released The Bling Ring and the animated tee-vee series Allen Gregory.

*The Hollywood Reporter reported in (June) 2011 that initiation fees at the Riviera Country Club run up to around a quarter million clams and some of its Showbiz bigwig members include Mark Wahlberg, Adam Sandler, Dennis Quaid, Luke Wilson, Jon Feltheimer, Jay Sures and Ari Emanuel.

Can't say I've cared for his oeuvre either; always struck me that he's somewhat the equivalent of Fox Broadcasting -- firmly entrenched member of the School of the Lowest Common Denominator.

Emphasis on common.

I went to see that Barbara Streisand movie and the projector was broken so they refunded our money and let us go see This Is 40 for free since it was about to start, and gurl, judging by that movie they should be heading to Encino.
But anyways, let's hope they don't build something like that other mansion on a flag lot backing the country club designed by Landry, dat place is gross and also right up their architectural alley.

Who is the architect? Is it Manion? This Is 40 house, owned by Bryan Zuriff, has been featured in The Hollywood Reporter, but I can't find Apatow's house.

I loved the Pacific Palisades house and would love to see his current home, though it will surely be a long while before the new place is ready and he sells. He either has great taste or the sense to procure that GGD (good gay decorator).

He lives next to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air house. The vacant lot is just west of the hideous Landry that backs the country club

Which hideous Landry? The house directly next door or the one for sale on San Vicente?

The one for sale. It was finished in more of a colonial(?) style opposed to the French shit Landry drew up.
I think their vacant lot is small. Current house has more land

Yucks mean bucks!

OK. Now we've made a mess: where is the the French mansion? Where is the house next door? And where is the house on sale? And where is Judd Apatow's plot? His house is on N Bristol Avenue.

Is this the plot:

Breathe.
The 'French Mansion' is the Landry designed flag lot house that's currently for sale on San Vincente.
Aptows flag lot is around the corner.
They currently live on N Bristol next door to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air house.

Which basically means that I got it right – 859 Woodacres Dr is Judd Apatow's plot and 1525 San Vicente Blvd is the Landry-designed mansion.
