Exclusive Los Angeles Properties: A-list stars cowered in his presence. It was just like that commercial hawking financial services years ago. When David Ovitz spoke, an entire city froze in silence. No individual stood taller among planet Hollywood's circle of power brokers than David Ovitz during the last quarter of the 20th century. The one-time super agent, the ex-head of the Creative Artists Agency, and, for a brief yet tumultuous tenure, the president of Walt Disney Studios, has listed his 13,000-square-foot home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los, Angeles, California, for $14.95 million per the Los Angeles Times.
It is a somewhat long drive from the gate to the entrance of the estate on Rockingham Rim, which was built by world-renowned architect Casper Ehmcke. The view of the canyons and the skyline to the west and the sprawling yard and greenery to the east are breathtaking. There is a swimming pool and a pool house too. It is ideal for entertaining, as there are two auto courts and vast space designated for additional parking.
The single-family residence has seven bedrooms, six full baths, and two powder rooms. It also features a full-dining room, a library, a den, a family room, an art studio, and a full-projection room. There are six wood-burning fireplaces strategically positioned throughout to keep it warm and cozy year round. The climate of the Hollywood community is a lot colder than most people may think. Just ask anyone who is trying to become a member of it.
David Mossler and Michael Philips of Teles Properties are the listing agents of this first-time-offered property.
