Beau Bridges and his wife, Wendy, have sold their longtime home in a gated community in Hidden Hills, Calif., for $2.4 million — twice what they originally paid.

The sale was a while in the making, however. They first listed the English-style country house in 2010 at $3.25 million and later turned to leasing.

Designed by architect Marshall Lewis and built in 1976, the ivy-covered house has a sunken den with a fireplace, a bar, a family room, a billiard area, an office, a wine cellar, a sauna, six bedrooms and six bathrooms in approximately 6,800 square feet of living space.

An atrium breakfast room takes in the views of mature trees. French doors open off the dining room to a patio. A spiral staircase leads to a loft space.
