The 13,796 square feet of loft-like space, some 200 feet from the sand, includes a 10,000-square-foot art studio that was used by Graham, a dance studio, a gym, a library/study, a media room, an office, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

The home and studio share a central courtyard shaded by a coral tree. There are city and ocean views and a swimming pool.

Huston, 62, was on the series “Smash” in 2012 and 2013 and appeared on “Medium” (2008-09). She won an Oscar for her supporting role in “Prizzi’s Honor” (1985), which was directed by her father, John Huston.

Among other memorable roles, she played Morticia Addams in the 1991 and 1993 “Addams Family” films. Her voice work includes this year’s animated film “The Pirate Fairy.”

Graham, who died in 2008 at 70, was known for his bronzes depicting the human figure.

The property had been listed four years ago at $18 million. It last changed hands in 1992 for $500,000, public records show.

Gregory Bega of Sotheby’s International Realty and Marykay Nibley of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents. Tamra Pardee and Daniel Pickart of Pardee Properties represented the buyer.

Actress ready for the sequel

Jodie Foster has put her home in Hollywood Hills West back on the market for $5.75 million.

The Spanish-style villa, built in 1935, features a step-down living room with a cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, French doors and views of Century City.

The 6,000 square feet of living space includes a screening room, an office, four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half-baths and an attached guest apartment. The master suite has a sauna and a seating area.

A central courtyard shelters a swimming pool and a brick patio.

Foster, 51, won Oscars for “The Accused” (1988) and “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991). Her first nomination was for her starring role in “Taxi Driver” (1976). She starred last year in the sci-fi thriller “Elysium.”

She previously listed the home last spring at $6.399 million. Public records show she bought the property in 1995, but the price wasn’t undisclosed.

David Kramer and Jeffrey Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, are the listing agents.

Furnishings fit Kardashian home

Kourtney Kardashian has sold her boldly decorated home in Calabasas for $2.975 million.

The black, white and brightly accented interiors by designer Jeff Andrews caught the eye of the buyers, who paid an additional $125,000 for select furnishings. Now Kardashian can set about decorating the larger nearby home she recently bought from retired pro football player Keyshawn Johnson.

The 5,400 square feet of living space at the home she sold includes a breezeway entry, an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, a library/office, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
