Writer, director, and actor Nick Cassavetes just cut $400,000 off the price of his Los Angeles home after just three months on the market. He relisted the mansion for $4,399,000 this week. It was originally priced at $4,799,000.
The “Notebook” director seems motivated to sell the Hollywood estate, which he purchased in 1998 for $749,000. Perhaps the reduced price will lead some well-heeled buyer to come through and fall in love at first sight.
Built in 1972, the 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom has been updated and polished to gleaming perfection. With views of the city below, the home sits on a half-acre lot edged by tall shrubs and stainless-steel doors for security. The latter open to reveal a large yard with a heated pool and spa.
Even though Cassavetes personally designed the space, he’s ready to part with the place.
“This property is a perfect home for anyone looking to be close to the Hollywood action, while also being able to enjoy privacy,” listing agent Linn Renee Sivertsen of The Agency told realtor.com® in June when the property was first listed.
“The house is hidden behind a tall wall of greenery, and when you walk through the gate, you are greeted by a large Buddha waterfall … which feels very Zen-like,” Sivertsen added.
In addition to his directing credits, Cassavetes has appeared in front of the camera in films such as “Face/Off” and “The Astronaut’s Wife.” He is the son of actress Gena Rowlands and actor-director John Cassavetes.
