Bruce Livingstone, the founder of, has sold his 1966 landmark home in Los Feliz for $3.28 million.

Designed by architect Edward H. Fickett, the Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument is called the Jacobson House for its original owners.

Fireplaces are located in the living room and master bedroom. Including the separate guest house/office, there are three bedrooms and four bathrooms. A swimming pool completes the grounds. Views take in the cityscape and mountains.

Fickett designed tens of thousands of single-family homes, including prefab and affordable houses, as well as the La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad and the Port of Los Angeles passenger and cargo terminals.

Livingstone, 44, sold iStockphoto to Getty Images in 2006 for $50 million. He is the chief executive of the stock photography cooperative Stocksy United.

The property previously changed hands in 2009 for $2.445 million.
