Hot Property 'Shadowboxer' in Los Feliz Ring By RUTH RYON, Times Staff Writer

Singer-songwriter FIONA APPLE and her boyfriend, filmmaker PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON, have purchased actor JASON PRIESTLEY's former home in the Los Feliz area for about $1.9 million. Apple, 21, won a Grammy this year for best female vocal rock performance. She was named best new artist at last year's MTV Video Music Awards. Her debut CD, "Tidal," went platinum and produced hit singles in "Shadowboxer" and "Criminal." She recently cut her version of the Lennon-McCartney song "Across the Universe" for the upcoming movie "Pleasantville," and she is making a video for the song, which Anderson is directing. Apple also has recorded Percy Mayfield's "Please Send Me Someone to Love" for "Pleasantville," starring William H. Macy. The movie is due to be released Oct. 23. Anderson, 27, wrote and directed the movie "Boogie Nights" (1997). He grew up in the San Fernando Valley. Apple, a native of New York, was raised on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The couple bought a four-bedroom 3,800-square-foot house built in 1930. The recently restored Spanish-style house also has a screening room, gym, steam room, wine room and pool. Priestley bought another home in the same area for about the same price but with a city view.
