Next chapter for Brentwood home
An equestrian property in Brentwood's Sullivan Canyon that was the longtime home of legendary actress and activist Maxine Cooper Gomberg has sold for $4.4 million.
The single-story residence, located at the end of a cul-de-sac, had been her family home for 46 years.
The ranch-style house, built in 1941 and centered on a courtyard, has five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,587 square feet. The flat lot of more than half an acre includes a circular driveway, a swimming pool and gardens planted with magnolia and fruit trees.
Cooper, who died last year at 84, was the wife of producer and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Sy Gomberg. As an actress, she is best known for the 1955 film noir classic "Kiss Me Deadly." On TV she was in "Dragnet" (1956), "Perry Mason" (1958 and 1959) and "The Twilight Zone" (1959).
She married Gomberg in 1957, quit acting in the early 1960s to raise a family and became an activist, organizing actors and others in the entertainment industry in support of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and against the Vietnam War, among other causes.
The house had come on the market in May at $5,295,000.
Robert Radcliffe of Sotheby's International Realty, Pacific Palisades, had the listing. Deedee Howard of Prudential California Realty, Beverly Hills, represented the buyer.
