Spoofing aside, filmmaker Jerry Zucker asks $16.5 million for his Brentwood home

Film director Jerry Zucker, who brought audiences such classic spoof films as “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun,” has listed his longtime Brentwood mansion for sale at a no-fooling-around price of $16.5 million.

The Traditional-style home, designed by Santa Monica architect John Byers, was built in 1939. The gray house, with black shutters and red brick patios and walkways, was expanded to 10,000 square feet by White House interior designer Michael S. Smith. Columns on the front veranda flank a red front door. 

Set on 1.6 acres, the living space includes formal living and dining rooms, a mahogany-paneled library, a theater and a guesthouse. There are six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and four powder rooms.

Mature trees encircle the grounds, which feature a swimming pool, an outdoor fireplace and a paddle-tennis court.

Zucker, 66, was also executive producer of the 1982 television series “Police Squad!” and wrote and produced the 1984 film “Top Secret!”

The property last changed hands in 1990 for $4.125 million.

Ann Eysenring and Billy Rose of The Agency are the listing agents.
