A-list actress Meryl Streep has sold a home in Hollywood Hills West to New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for $4.8 million.
Known as the Honnold & Rex Research House, the 1954 residence was redesigned and reconfigured by earlier owner and architectural conservator Xorin Balbes. Walls of glass open to a courtyard with a pool and a spa. The two-story living room has a floor-to-ceiling stone wall and fireplace.
The 3,700 square feet of living space includes dining and family rooms, four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The Oscar-winning actress bought the house early last year for $4.5 million. The home was built under the 1950s and '60s Case Study program, which prodded architects to experiment with new materials and design methods.
Streep, 65, won Academy Awards for her work in "The Iron Lady" (2011), "Sophie's Choice" (1982) and "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979). The versatile and busy actress is in three movies this year: "The Homesman," "The Giver" and "Into the Woods."
Rodriguez, 39, played for the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers before joining the Yankees a decade ago. A suspension related to the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal has kept A-Rod from professional play this year.
He has been seen this summer training at UCLA.
