On the block.

If you want a bit of “DOOL” history and have a few million dollars to spare, you are in luck. Drake Hogestyn (John) has put his home up for sale. He is asking $4.995 million for his Tuscan-style two-story house built in 2002. According to the LA Times, the house features “French doors, hardwood floors, decks and balconies. There are fireplaces in the living room, family room and master suite of the 6,616-square-foot house, which has a total of five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The grounds of about an acre include a circular driveway, a swimming pool, sycamore trees, fruit trees and an herb garden.”
