Decorated television producer Jill Farren Phelps, whose work on the daytime soaps "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" has won her scores of Emmys, has put her home on Mulholland Drive on the market for $2.5 million.
The ranch-style house, built in 1962 and full of colorful details, is secluded on more than half an acre above the Hollywood Hills and adjacent to protected land.
The 2,606-square-foot house features vibrant hues and wallpaper, crown molding and hardwood floors. A brick-surround fireplace anchors the living and dining rooms, which center on panoramic views through a row of French doors.
The brickwork continues in the family room, which has a wall filled with built-ins and doors opening to the patio. A skylight-topped breakfast nook sits off the updated kitchen. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms complete the floor plan.
Outside, a blue-tiled swimming pool and spa take in the city lights and mountains. Lush landscaping and lawn complete the grounds.
Emmanuel Xuereb and Salvator Xuereb of 360 Realty are the listing agents.
Farren Phelps, 67, got her start in television in 1974 as a production assistant on the show "Guiding Light" and won the first of 11 Daytime Emmys in the early '80s as the music director for "General Hospital." Her other credits include such soap operas as "Santa Barbara," "Another World" and "One Life to Live."
