Though his old Los Angeles home remains listed for sale, Tinseltown screenwriter/producer Jeremy Slater has already settled into a secluded estate in a very good part of Encino, nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains.
Records show Slater — best known for movies and TV shows like “Fantastic Four,” Death Note,” “The Umbrella Academy,” “The Exorcist” and, most recently, “Moon Knight” — paid just under $4.8 million for the Frank Lloyd Wright/Asian-inspired residence, which was built back in the early 1980s, and features four bedrooms and an equal number of baths spread across nearly 5,000 square feet of living space.
Hidden securely away behind walls and gates, and resting on a heavily wooded parcel of land spanning three-quarters of an acre, the redwood-clad structure is fronted by a motorcourt flanked by a three-bay garage with a workshop and room for two cars, along with a giant bear sculpture welcoming visitors from his post amid a flowerbed. Numerous timbers are also strategically placed in and around the dwelling.
A green latticed front door opens into a striking hexagon-shaped foyer, which flows to a combined living/dining room area sporting a high trussed and sky-lit ceiling, massive stone fireplace, wet bar and walls of windows overlooking the grounds. Other main-level highlights include a spacious kitchen outfitted with an octagonal center island, which connects to a fireside family room displaying a loft-style library.
Elsewhere is a master retreat boasting a sitting area, dual walk-in closets, and a mosaic-tiled bath accented by dual vanities, a spa tub and standalone shower, plus two additional guest bedrooms and an office space. Outdoors, the private backyard is laced with mature oak and sycamore trees, and includes a wraparound wood deck overlooking a koi pond spanned by a footbridge. There’s also a detached guesthouse and storage shed.
As for his Hollywood Hills house that’s currently listed for $4.3 million, Slater bought that place in 2018 for just over $2.1 million. Built in 1990 and since remodeled, the Mediterranean-style residence features four bedrooms and five baths in a little more than 4,600 square feet.
