The 1952-built compound is ideal for entertaining: It includes an outdoor paved patio; a green, grassy lawn; and a sparking rectangular turquoise swimming pool.

Someone call the doctor because veteran ER star Eriq La Salle just purchased a stunning estate in Bel Air.

The actor, who starred as Dr. Peter Benton on the NBC series and earned a Golden Globe nomination and three Emmy noms for his supporting role, just dropped $3.03 million on his new 2,359-square-foot, 1952-built home.

La Salle's three bedroom, three bathroom single-family house, originally listed for $3.49 million, has large floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, which welcome in the Southern California sunshine.

Multiple spaces are ideal for entertaining, including a large white kitchen that extends onto an outdoor paved patio; an expansive living space that overlooks the canyon below; a green, grassy lawn flanked by a variation of shade trees; and a rectangular turquoise swimming pool.

Homeowners also can take in the panoramic views in the infinity backyard, whose wooden steps descend and open onto private rolling grounds.

Nestled near Sunset Boulevard and Mulholland Drive, the private oasis also is ideal for housing visitors in the private one bedroom, one bathroom guest house.

Amy Colvin of the John Aaroe Group is the listing agent.
