Ex-Raven is going to fly the coop

Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister has listed his Beverly Hills Post Office area home at $7.9 million.

The gated, French Normandy-style estate with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms in 9,375 square feet has been his home during the off-season. He plans to move to Maryland.

The house, built in 1990, has a two-bathroom master suite, a two-level living room and four fireplaces. There is a koi pond, a putting green and a swimming pool with a spa.

The view from the three-quarter-acre lot was his favorite feature of the house, McAlister said. "I could see Catalina from the front of the house and the entire Valley from the back."

McAlister, 32, played college football at the University of Arizona and was selected by the Ravens in the 1999 NFL Draft. He won a Super Bowl ring with the team in 2001. The Ravens released McAlister in February. He has been rehabbing from knee surgery.

As for his career plans, he said, "I will be playing again."

The listing agent is Kofi Natei Nartey of Sotalot Realty Group, Los Angeles.

Siblings over-bid to cinch the deal

Actor Mark Saul and his sister, costume designer Deanna Saul, have purchased a duplex in Silver Lake for $585,000.

The 5,200-square-foot property, which sits on a street with million-dollar homes, came on the market in late July at $495,000 and closed in early September.

Each unit has one bedroom and one bathroom for a total of about 1,600 square feet of living space. There are lake and city views.

Mark, 24, has appeared as intern Steve in more than two dozen episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" (2007-09) and in various roles on "All That" (1997-2005). Deanna, about five years his senior, has worked in the costume and wardrobe departments of a dozen TV shows.

Mark is a first-time homebuyer, and Deanna previously owned a condo. The pair say they are looking forward to living upstairs/downstairs to each other, according to Brent Watson of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills, who had the listing and also represented the Sauls.

Although originally built in 1939, the duplex has a late '60s vibe. They are planning a major updating and renovation to give it a modern feel, Watson said.
