Mary Firestone, an actress and great-granddaughter of Harvey S. Firestone, the founder of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co., has sold her home in Pacific Palisades for $3.79 million, or $325,000 over the asking price.

Outdoors, the fenced and hedged grounds are filled with mature trees and gardens. A second-story deck/patio takes in treetop views.

Here’s proof that some people actually can have nice things. According to its listing description, this razor-sharp modern in Granada Hills’ Balboa Highlands Eichler tract has belonged to the same owners—”Frances and Larry”—since being built in 1964. The aforementioned couple appear to have taken excellent care of the 2,078-square-foot residence, as even its original built-in blender is still functioning after all these years.

Other features of the five-bedroom, two-bath home include an entry atrium, sliding glass walls, beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, built-in shelving and storage, and a cinderblock fireplace. Occupying a one-quarter-acre lot, it’s asking $789,900.
