Her boots are made for walkin' and sellin'

Singer Nancy Sinatra has sold her home in Beverly Hills for $5.3 million.

The 8,085-square-foot house, built in 1990, features an open floor plan in which a main living area, a den/media room and a lounge with a bar flow into one another. There are five bedrooms, and the one-third-acre site includes a swimming pool, a cabana and a two-story guesthouse.

Public records show she bought the property in 1998 for $2.2 million.

Sinatra, 71, is the daughter of entertainer Frank Sinatra (who died in 1998) and his first wife, Nancy. One of her 1960s hit songs was "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'."

A modern classic hits the market

on Mercer Island for $15.5 million

One of the more noteworthy residences in the area, the Coval home and gardens on Mercer Island, has been listed for sale for $15.5 million, according to listing agent Barb Korducki of Coldwell Banker Danforth.

The sprawling house — its modern design influenced by the Gamble house, an Arts and Crafts classic in Pasadena, Calif., — is one of the last three privately owned five-acre parcels of land on Mercer Island and was handcrafted over a number of years by some of the top woodworking artists in the Northwest.
