Among recent near-misses:
- The Sunday Home of the Week may have looked vaguely familiar as it was a film location for last year’s “Atlas Shrugged Part 1,” which used the rebuilt Victorian home in Piru for some scenes.
- An estate that recently closed at $21.75 million in gated Beverly Park is leading the big-sales-so-far-this-year race in Los Angeles County among properties on the Multiple Listing Service. The 16,000-square-foot mansion on more than 2 acres was listed by Jeffrey Hyland and Connie Blankenship of Hilton & Hyland. Chad Rogers of the same office represented the buyer.
- A vacant lot in Santa Monica listed at $9.95 million is not totally amenity free. The buildable site of about an acre overlooks the Riviera Country Club, where the Northern Trust Open is being played this week. Stephen Shapiro and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency have the listing.
