Twice-Academy-Award-nominated American film producer Richard Gladstein and his wifeLauri have just sold their elegant craftsman home in Hollywood Hills to TV writer/producer Anne Fricke and her partner in life and career, Jeremy Carver. The former couple have made a half-million-dollar profit, as the asking price was $3 million.
Sprawled over more than half an acre lot of prime flat land, this 3,258-square-foot private and secluded luxury retreat features a circular driveway with mature landscaped greenery. According to the listing records, the interior is very welcoming with its hardwood flooring throughout, open beamed white ceiling, wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling French door, full picture windows and great entertaining space.
The generously-sized eat-in chef’s kitchen features a center island, a commercial range, glass-faced cabinets with interior lighting, high-end commercial-style appliances and thick-slab counter tops. The first floor consists of a spacious living room, a swanky dining room and a state-of-the-art media room with wraparound French doors which open to a park-like brick-laid backyard. The next floor boasts a master bedroom with walk-in closet and stunning city views and ensuite bathroom, an adjoining light-splashed living room and another two ensuite bedrooms. Other amenities include a separate detatched 2-car garage, off-street parking and possibility of a pool.
The star-studded neighborhood hosts estates owned by American oil heiress Normandie Keith, filmmaker Roland Emmerich, art world doyenne Margo Leavin, four-time Emmy nominated director/producer Tony Krantz and British actress Dame Helen Mirren, Oscar- , BAFTA-, Golden Globe-, Emmy- and Cannes Film Festival- Awards winner.
