Kelsey Grammer, star of the sitcom "Frasier," and his wife, Camille, have sold a 7,600-square-foot house in the Bel-Air area of Los Angeles for $3.3 million, slightly less than the actor paid for it in 2007.

The recently remodeled home is on 1.5 acres and has canyon and city views.

The buyer was described as a Mexican real estate developer,

Priced at $2.95 million, it is about 30% less this year than its owners were asking a year ago.

This home, in the Cleveland Park area of Washington, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,500 square feet. The Modernist-style home also has a signature, poured-in-place concrete roof.

Slayton's family sold the home in 2000 for $850,000.

Heidi Hatfield and Anne Hatfield Weir of Washington Fine Properties, LLC have the listing.



Singer-songwriter Jewel Kilcher and her husband, rodeo champion Ty Murray, have sold their Hollywood Hills home for $1.4 million.

The home, Spanish in style, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,781 square feet. A third bedroom was turned into a closet in the restored 1938 house. The house also has an updated kitchen, an office and an attached, three-car garage as well as canyon and city views.

Kilcher, 34, has sold millions of albums and has been nominated for numerous Grammy awards. She released her first independent album, "Lullaby," in May.

Murray and Kilcher appeared recently on "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC, but the pair make their home in Stephenville, Texas, where they have a ranch.

Jordan Cohen of ReMax Olson & Associates, Westlake Village, has the listing, and Jackie Winter of Sotheby's International Realty in Los Feliz represented the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service.




Actress Khandi Alexander of "CSI: Miami," has sold her Sunset Strip-area home for $2.75 million. The house was listed most recently for about six months.
