Clara Bow's former home in Bel-Air is sold

Update: A former home of silent film star Clara Bow has sold for $6,375,000. The Spanish-style house in Bel-Air came on the market in early July at $6,995,000.

Built in 1928, the Moorish-influenced residence includes a courtyard, a ballroom, a rooftop deck, enclosed sleeping porches, six bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms in 8,900 square feet.

A guesthouse with a bedroom and bathroom sits above the three-car garage for a total of 9,450 square feet of living space. At nearly three-quarters of an acre, the gated lot has a pool with a sun deck and a motor court.

Bow, who died in 1965 at 60, was a flapper and sex symbol in the Roaring Twenties. Among her nearly five dozen film appearances were starring roles in the 1927 hits "Wings" and "It," earning her the nickname "The It Girl."

The property previously sold in 1991 for $2,475,000, public records show.

Scott Tamkin of the Nest Real Estate Group at Keller Williams, Brentwood, was the listing agent. Mahin Mirhoseini of Palace Real Estate, Canoga Park, represented the buyer.
