Jakob Dylan, singer-songwriter son of the famous Bob Dylan, has put his Brentwood estate on the market at $11 million.

Dylan, 39, is the youngest of the great one's four children and is best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the rock band the Wallflowers. His latest album, "Seeing Things," was released in May.

His classic Brentwood Park, Spanish-style estate has a main house that has been expanded and restored, and it has five bedrooms, including a master-bedroom suite, on an upstairs level. There is also a two-story guesthouse and a second guesthouse, which is being used as a recording studio.

There is a total of seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and seven fireplaces.  The gated home has a lap pool and a spa. There are stainless-steel appliances and a center island in the kitchen.

Richard Stearns of Sotheby's International Realty, Brentwood, is the listing agent, the MLS reports.

Mac Davis, country music singer-songwriter and actor, has purchased a Brentwood home for $4.9 million. The seller was Alex Wallau, former president of ABC Television. Wallau is now on the board of ESPN.

Davis bought Wallau's three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house with a two-story entry; a formal dining room, and a family room with glass walls. The master-bedroom suite has a fireplace, an exercise room, a theater system, a pool, a spa and an outdoor dining area.

Davis, 66, wrote "In the Ghetto" for Elvis Presley; "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me," "One Hell of a Woman," and "Stop and Smell the Roses." Davis was the host of a musical variety show on NBC from 1974 to 1976, and he co-starred with Nick Nolte in the 1979 movie "North Dallas Forty."

Jeff Franklin, producer of the TV hits "Full House" and "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper," has listed his Sunset Strip-area home at nearly $6.5 million.

The home, considered a tear-down with three bedrooms and three bathrooms in slightly more than 3,000 square feet, is walled and gated and is being sold for land value, the MLS says. The site is at the end of a cul-de-sac and has city views.

Franklin also worked on "Laverne & Shirley," "Gimme a Break!" and "Bosom Buddies."

The property was co-listed by Josh Flagg of Keller Williams Realty, Westside, and Brendan Fitzpatrick of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, according to the MLS.

A Bel-Air mansion has been sold for$38 million, making it one of the biggest sales of the year.

The 11,400-square-foot Mediterranean-style home, built in 1926, once belonged to the family of Herbert Kalmus, whose Technicolor Motion Picture Corp. figured in the colorization of movies.

Verna Harrah, the widow of hotel and casino owner Bill Harrah and a producer of the 1997 film "Anaconda" and its sequel, was the seller in 2005. Malibu Colony Trust, which purchased the home from Verna Harrah for $14.9 million, was the current seller, public records show. The buyer was Gacac-LLC.

The house, on about 1.5 acres, has six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, a pool and ocean views.

If the former hunting lodge of Anne of Brittany, the queen to two French kings, appeals to you, gear up for the French region of Normandy.

The cost is surprisingly reasonable. For $595,000, you can buy the lodge with its four bedrooms, three bathrooms, five fireplaces and original floors of brick and tile. There is also a 5,300-square-foot walled garden.

The owner, an insurance broker, did some work on the place, and now he is ready to move on. The work included restoring the roof and interior ceilings, converting the attic into a livable space and adding a bathroom.  The manor, called Le Baillage, was also used at one time as a court.

Xavier Attal of Immo Best International in Paris has the listing in partnership with Prestige Property Group.
