Hollywood mogul Jerry Bruckheimer is a bit of a real estate buff. According to Curbed, Bruckheimer and his wife, author Linda Bruckheimer, own a stable of high-end properties, including a farm in Kentucky and a ranch in Beverly Hills.
And then there's this Mid-Century Modern in L.A., which the super-producer is ready to bid a fond farewell.
Listed for a $14.5 million, the 9,030-square-foot home designed in the mid-'60s stands apart from other homes in the prestigious Brentwood area of Los Angeles. Conceived by architect Thornton Abell, the home was designed with nature in mind.
"There are a lot of mature oak and sycamore trees on the property the home was built around," says listing agent Mike Deasy.
The result is three pavilions, one for the living areas, one for the guest quarters. and one private wing for the master suite. Each area of the home incorporates the outdoors in some form. Whether with glass walls with views of the courtyard, skylights, or a deck, you're never removed from nature.
Inside, the home is a "classic style that has been restored and perfectly preserved," says Deasy. Each room is dedicated to the "wood, glass, and steel" principle of international-style architecture.
The living room has wall-to-wall glass on two sides divided by a concrete fireplace and wood built-ins, all under a teak-paneled ceiling.
The dining room, set down from the kitchen, is flanked on one side by a built-in bar with recessed lighting and a massive sliding glass door leading to the courtyard. The focal point of the room is a frosted glass, wood, and steel chandelier.
Between the kitchen and the guest quarters, there's an atrium that houses a koi pond, according to Deasy. The guest studio on the property has a bedroom, living space, and kitchen.
Outside, the property feels remote -- but in the best possible way. "It is walled and gated and totally private," says Deasy. "There are rows of giant bamboo that add to the privacy and value of the landscape."
And much like its seller, the property is a bit of a star in the area. "It is very unusual to find a true one-story, Mid-Century Modern international house like this one in this area. Most of the properties in this neighborhood are traditional homes," says Deasy.
As for the 71-year-old Bruckheimer, the prolific producer shows no signs of slowing down. He has several projects in the works, including the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales," "Bad Boys 3," and "National Treasure 3: Atlantis."
