Ted Chervin, managing director of top talent and literary agency ICM Partners and chairman of ICM Stellar Sports, and director/producer Shawn Levy (the “Night at the Museum” series, “Stranger Things,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Big Fat Liar”) have been busy making some substantial real estate moves as of late, with both flipping their Los Angeles and New York City digs for larger and glitzier spots in the same neighborhoods.
On the West Coast, ICM’s Chervin and his wife, Australian model and former professional golfer Anna Rawson, have sold their contemporary-meets-Craftsman Brentwood home above the $6.75 million asking price for $7 million. The couple subsequently plunked down $13.4 million in an off-market deal to acquire another Brentwood estate — this one substantially larger and more lavish — from Levy and his longtime wife Serena, who had themselves doled out $10.8 million for the place in 2018.
Meanwhile, over in the Big Apple, the Levys have traded up from their $7 million three-bedroom, three-bath Tribeca apartment, which they bought from “Real Housewives” stalwart Bethenny Frankel in 2016. Last month, the pair forked out $13 million for a dazzling Monique Gibson-designed penthouse duplex.
Located at an intimate 24-unit, nine-story building in the heart of Tribeca, the new place is nearly twice the size of the 3,275-square-foot apartment the couple still owns in the same Manhattan neighborhood.
As for Chervin and Rawson’s new Brentwood home, previously owned by the Levys, the traditional, white and black-shuttered house is secluded from the street behind soaring hedges and gates; and it’s just minutes from the Brentwood and Riviera country clubs — likely a deciding factor for Rawson, an accomplished duffer who played on the Ladies European and LPGA tours.
