'Arrested Development's' Tambor Sells Topanga Canyon Home at Loss
The voice you hear as Lord Jamie in the new Disney animated flick "Tangled"
(to be released in November) is that of Jeffrey Tambor
. Just don't expect to be hearing Tambor's voice at Joe's Market in Topanga Canyon
, Calif. anymore, since the actor best known for his role on the TV cult hit "Arrested Development"
has sold his 3,591-square-foot home there for $1,525,000.
Tambor, 66, and his second wife, Kasia Ostlun, sold their secluded 1.9-acre mountain property, purchased in October 2008 for $1,675,000. We're pretty sure that what felt like a bargain then feels like a narrow escape today.
Topanga is the little hippie and artist community adjacent to Malibu that is best known for being home to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
, a restaurant established in 1968 which rates its food on a spirituality scale. The closer you get to ordering a bacon cheeseburger, the less likely your ascension into the purple part of the menu.
The four-bedroom, five-bath home that Tambor sold has an attached guest apartment with a separate entrance (see pictures below). It has a large, open floor plan with vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings. There are wide-plank hardwood floors, and French doors leading outside. The home has a rustic river rock fireplace in the living room (we suspect built by noted local stone artisan Jack Rice or his personally mentored son-in-law, Randy Just). There is a full wall of built-in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.
Tambor and Ostlun, who married in 2001 have four children. He has been nominated for six Emmys -- two for his work on "Arrested Development" and four for "The Larry Sanders Show."
