There were a couple of notable developments in celebrity real estate –author and actress Victoria Foyt put her longtime Westside home on the market for $29.95 million, while the parents of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson sold their home in Encino for $3.5 million.

Foyt, whose more prominent books include “The Virtual Life of Lexie Diamond” and “Save the Pearls: Revealing Eden,” had lived in the Mediterranean-style home for more than two decades, according to the Los Angeles Times. Measuring 14,000 square feet, the mansion includes 12 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms. It sets behind antique wrought-iron gates on 3.3 acres of land.

Other features include a hidden bar, vaulted ceilings, a sun room, Art Deco tile work and more.

As for the Simpson clan, Joe and Tina Simpson sold their home in Encino to television producer Cynthia Harrison and her husband who is the chief of real estate investment firm Lewis Wallach. The home has 6,900 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, theater and lagoon-style pool among other features, according to the Times.

The Simpsons had owned the home since purchasing it for $2.1 million in 2001. Harrison is credited with writing/producing several shows for The History Channel, including “Dogfights,” “The Great Ships,” and “Rogue Waves.”
