Emmy Award-winning screenwriter Christopher Markus co-wrote three “Captain America” films, but his new home in Hancock Park embraces a style from across the pond.
Markus recently paid $6.01 million for a stately English manor-style house, records show. It had been listed for $6.5 million.
On half an acre of park-like grounds, the brick house pairs an elegant, ivy-draped facade with a front-facing lattice window. Within the home’s 5,600 square feet, there’s a bright living room, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, an office, and an art studio with paint-laden walls that bring to mind a Jackson Pollock piece.
The upstairs master suite includes a fireplace and a reading nook. In all, there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
A terrace extends off the second story, overlooking the private, tree-lined backyard. Within the space, a grassy yard separates a spacious patio from a pool and spa. A brick guest house completes the grounds.
Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman held the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Denise Snanoudj of the Agency represented Markus.
