Actor Nick Nolte has put a Malibu compound up for sale that has seen a galaxy of stars come through its arched entryway.
Priced at $8.25 million and set in the Bonsall Canyon area, the two-acre retreat is covered with sycamore and pine trees. The main house, built in 1963, features 19-foot vaulted ceilings, skylights, six stone-and-carved-wood fireplaces, marble floors and mahogany French doors. There are four bedrooms including the master suite, which has its own sitting area, office and library, and two of the fireplaces.
The grounds also contain a two-bedroom, three-bathroom guesthouse, a tennis court and a lagoon-style pool.
Nolte, 72, will star in the upcoming film "The Impossible Dream." His other films include "48 Hrs." (1982), "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" (1986), "The Good Thief" (2003) and "Warrior" (2011). He starred with Robert Redford in "The Company You Keep" last year, and they reportedly will work together in a future film, "A Walk in the Woods."

Opening for a mogul on Westside
The Harvey Mudd estate, designed by noted architect Elmer Grey in 1922, is for sale in the 90210 ZIP Code at $22.995 million.
Sited on an acre with a swimming pool, an aviary and gardens, the English country estate has nearly 11,000 square feet of living space in the main house and guest studio. Features include a two-story entry with hand-carved wood detailing, a conservatory and a wine cellar with a tasting room. There are seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two powder rooms.
The estate has been owned by magnates, philanthropists and other notables:
•1922: Built for Charles Boldt, who was a premier glass mason jar manufacturer and one of the wealthiest Americans of his time
•1925 to 1958: Owned by philanthropists Harvey and Mildred Mudd. The Harvey Mudd College in Claremont bears his name.

•1968 to 1991: Owned by Academy Award-winning actor Martin Landau and his wife, Emmy Award winner Barbara Bain, both of the TV series "Mission Impossible"
The seller, developer Brendan Deschamps, spent the last three years renovating and expanding the estate to nearly double its original 6,000 square feet. The property previously sold in 2010 for $6.25 million.
Deschamps bought Elton John's Sierra Towers condos in West Hollywood in the fall for $4.65 million.

A plot twist in Malibu
Soap star Drake Hogestyn is trying to sell the Malibu retreat where he has no doubt spent many days of his life.
Priced at $4.995 million and built in 2002, the Tuscan-style two-story features wood-beam ceilings, French doors, hardwood floors, decks and balconies. There are fireplaces in the living room, family room and master suite of the 6,616-square-foot house, which has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The grounds of about an acre include a circular driveway, a swimming pool, sycamore trees, fruit trees and an herb garden.
Hogestyn, 59, has been on "Days of Our Lives" since 1986, with a few breaks when he was supposedly killed off but then later returned to the show. Before that he was on the series "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" (1982-83).
The property was purchased in 2003 for $2.9 million, public records show.
Irene Dazzan-Palmer and Sandro Dazzan of Coldwell Banker's Malibu Colony office are the listing agents.
Hollywood Hills house has a story line

Built in 1915, Casa De Vasquez includes a three-bedroom, two-bathroom main house of 1,332 square feet, a detached office, a two-story guesthouse and a detached garage. The gated property features citrus trees, a cactus garden and an expansive patio.
The site was reportedly used as a horse stable in the late 1800s by bandit Tiburcio Vasquez.
Waugh made a splash last year as a director for the Navy SEALs action film "Act of Valor" and is co-founder of the studio Bandito Brothers. The actor-producer was also a stuntman until 2005.
