Less than a year after the prolific television and documentary writer-producer-director Alan Landsburg passed at 81, his large and very contemporary Beverly Hills home has popped up on the open market at $6.995 million.
Purchased by the Emmy winner and Oscar nominee in early 1998 for $2.339 million, the boxy and crisply modern glass, stucco and stainless-steel-accented mansion, per current listing details, sits high and tight on a 0.35-acre parcel about three short miles from the Beverly Hills Hotel. The two-story structure measures in at 7,390 square feet of airy, open-plan living space with yellow-toned hardwood floors and extensive walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that overlook the swimming pool and open to a variety of decks and terraces. Marketing materials call out five bedrooms and six bathrooms, including a bilevel master suite comprised of sitting room, terrace with private spa, two fitted walk-in closets and two ample if decidedly outdated bathrooms.
A wide corridor fitted with a fully stocked wet bar connects formal living and dining rooms — the former with a fireplace — to a well-equipped eat-in kitchen with snow white cabinetry and black granite countertops. In the dining area, a raised-hearth fireplace is sheathed in a fish-scale-like pattern of stainless steel panels, while in the bookshelf-lined den, a third fireplace is faced with a smooth sheet of stainless steel. A spacious, upper-level media room has a fourth fireplace along with a fully fitted wet bar, and glass sliders that provide direct access to a city-view deck with — That’s right, butter bean! — an outdoor fireplace.
