“Wonder Years” child star Fred Savage, now an accomplished TV producer and sitcom director (“Modern Family,” “2 Broke Girls,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,”) recently put his lovely Spanish-influenced Mediterranean home in L.A.’s Hancock Park up for sale. But the busy-busy showbiz polyglot is not waiting around for a buyer before making his next real estate move — he’s already forked out $9.5 million for a family-sized new mansion in the tony Bel Air neighborhood, records reveal.

Tucked onto a nearly half-acre flat lot, the 8,000+ sq. ft. mansion was built in the trendy “modern farmhouse” style by a local developer and completed earlier this year. Gated and camera-secured for celeb-style privacy, the house has interiors trimmed with neutral decor and European white oak flooring. An open-concept main floor is equipped with the requisitely elegant main rooms — a formal dining room, living room, family room — the latter two with fireplaces — and gourmet kitchen with a vaulted, beamed ceiling, Calacatta marble-topped island and commercial-sized stainless refrigerator. Walls of glass flood the interior spaces with light and provide easy push-button access to the backyard.

Other home amenities include but are not limited to: maid’s quarters on the lower floor, movie theater, bonus/games room, and four bedrooms suites upstairs, the master equipped with a private balcony and showroom-style closet. Beyond the walls is a grassy backyard upgraded with a plunge pool, spa and adjacent poolside cabana with fireplace, bathroom, BBQ and cooking area. The property is surrounded by a variety of old growth trees that provide the estate with a park-like atmosphere — a quiet oasis of peace in the middle of urban Los Angeles, if you will.

Aram Afshar & Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker held the listing; Sharona Alperin of Sotheby’s International Realty repped Savage.
