Alexia Landeau's Laurel Canyon compound has been owned by a string of Hollywood notables

Actress-writer Alexia Landeau has put a Hollywood Hills compound with a storied history up for sale at $2.895 million.

The ownership records read like a who’s who of celebrities: writer-producer Barry Poznick, actress Christina Applegate and Applegate's mother, actress-singer Nancy Priddy. Other names associated with the property include Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz and actor David Niven.

During Niven’s tenancy he was starring in the mid-'60s television series "The Rogues," and the property earned the nickname the Rogues Retreat.

The Laurel Canyon-area hideaway was built in 1923 and is in use as a compound although it is a legal duplex with two addresses.

A gnarled wisteria climbing a trellis, an al fresco dining patio and the original outdoor fireplace are at the center of the indoor-outdoor property, which features winding paths and fruit trees. An artsy timber-frame writer’s cabin with a redwood deck takes in canyon views.

The Traditional-style main house and separate guest house have a total of five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 3,670 square feet of space. The two-story main house has a great room with walls of windows, a reclaimed brick fireplace, high ceilings and a media room/library with built-ins. The master suite features a vintage marble fireplace, a window seat and two walk-in closets.

In addition to a bedroom and bathroom in the guest house, there’s a living room and a tiled kitchen.

Landeau, 40, appeared in and cowrote “2 Days in New York” (2012). She was also in “2 Days in Paris” (2007) and “Moonlight Mile” (2002). Her latest cowriting effort is the upcoming “Days Out of Days.”

She bought the property from Poznick last year for $2.485 million, public records show. He bought it from Priddy in 2003 for $705,000.

Mark Kitching and Karen Misraje of Partners Trust are the listing agents.
