Matthew Perry readies for liftoff from the Bird Streets

Matthew Perry of 'Friends' fame has put his home in the Birds Streets of Hollywood Hills West

Actor Matthew Perry has listed his home in the Bird Streets of Hollywood Hills West for sale at $13.5 million.

Perry, known for his role on the sitcom “Friends,” has been spending less time on the West Coast since his playwriting debut, “The End of Longing,” opened last year in London. The play, in which he also stars, premiered stateside this month in an off-Broadway production at MCC Theater.

The dramatic showplace, built in 1962, features walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that open to a covered patio and an infinity-edge swimming pool. Fire features and reflecting pools enhance the outdoor living space. Clear-through views extend from downtown L.A. to the ocean.

Entered through an atrium courtyard, the 3,821 square feet of open-plan space includes a living room with a fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The master suite has a wall of glass that leads directly outdoors. The home theater sits beneath the house and has 2-inch-thick windows that look into the pool.

An attached two-car garage sits off the home’s entrance.

Perry ushered in a new wave of celebrity activity in the neighborhood, known for its use of bird names for streets, six years ago when he bought the property for $8.65 million. The 47-year-old has also owned homes in trendy L.A.-area spots such as the Sierra Towers, the Outpost Estates neighborhood and Malibu’s gated Serra Retreat.

Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen of Partners Trust are the listing agents.

His new roster is taking shape

Doc Rivers, head coach and team president of the Los Angeles Clippers, has made his first move of the off-season, buying a home in Malibu for $9.525 million.

The Spanish-style beach house is in the Malibu Cove Colony, a guard-gated enclave, and sits along the oceanfront. Built in 1978, the two-story house features high ceilings, two fireplaces and surf-facing decks extending from each floor. Oversized windows and sliding glass doors bring the ocean breeze and views inside.

Some 3,400 square feet of living space includes an open-plan kitchen, living and dining rooms, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master suite scores points with a separate sitting area and glass doors that open to a wraparound deck.
