“I, Tonya” director Craig Gillespie has directed that the price of his Los Angeles home be reduced. It’s now available for $5.9 million.

Gillespie, 50, first placed the 1930s mansion on the market in May for $7 million. Still in search of a buyer, the price of the Brentwood home has been lowered to its current ask.

The home was purchased in 2003 for $3 million, so it will fetch the director, who hails from Australia, a hefty chunk of money when it finally closes.

The stylish residence is certainly ready for its close-up. It’s an “extremely special” four-bedroom, 4.5-bath shingled retreat, which has been “restored and remodeled by the current owner,” according to the listing description.

It’s surrounded by “breathtaking gardens” and a tree-filled brick courtyard. The recently redone cook’s kitchen includes French doors. The spacious formal dining room is lined with windows. The light-filled living room features a fireplace, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and glass doors that open to a terrace with gardens, pool, spa, sport court, outdoor fireplace, and views. 

Upstairs contains the master suite, with extensive built-ins, plus three more bedrooms, an artist’s studio, and an upstairs media room with pitched ceiling and bath. The guest quarters with bathroom include a separate entrance. 

As for Gillespie, he’s already onto his next digs, which may explain his openness to dropping the sale price of his former home. 

The filmmaker recently plunked down $12.05 million for a custom-designed contemporary, also in Brentwood, Variety reported. The spacious upgrade boasts 5,233 square feet, with five bedrooms, and 5.5 baths.

Along with the recent Oscar-nominated flick about the life of Tonya Harding, Gillespie directed episodes of the TV series “The United States of Tara,” as well as the Disney movie “The Finest Hours.”
