While it won’t ever be mistaken for his dad’s strikingly angular, 28,000-square-foot contemporary megamansion in L.A.’s Benedict Canyon neighborhood, Hollywood scion Eric Ovitz has paid $6.7 million for a nonetheless suitably impressive home out in the San Fernando Valley.
The 34-year-old’s digs were built new last year and span a portly 8,300-square-feet of living space on what is arguably one of the best streets in Studio City — right next door is Demi Lovato’s new $7 million mansion, and just a couple doors away is a $4.6 million estate owned by “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris. Also on the same street are the homes of Ed Begley Jr. and Rachel Platten.
Married to his wife Kendall since 2014, Ovitz currently toils as a law clerk for Browne George Ross O’Brien Annaguey & Ellis LLP. The youngest of Michael Ovitz’s three children — who was once described by his politically liberal father as having “turned out a Republican, despite my best efforts” — Eric graduated from Northwestern and previously worked as a partnership marketing specialist for the Los Angeles Rams.
Of course, the elder Ovitz needs no introduction to those even vaguely familiar with Tinseltown. The former Hollywood kingpin is best known as the cofounder of talent agency juggernaut CAA and former president of the Walt Disney Company; today, he’s a private investor and one of the world’s top 200 art collectors, counting among his contemporary collection works by Pablo Picasso, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and many others.
Armed with amenities galore, including a snazzy wood-paneled elevator to all levels, the Eric Ovitz estate additionally includes a Control4 smart-home system, temperature-controlled wine cellar, gym, movie theater, dry sauna and Jacuzzi, a sports court, putting range and not one but two master suites.
