Writer-director Kirk DeMicco of "The Croods" fame has put his home in Hollywood Hills West on the market for $2.579 million.
The two-story contemporary, built in 1963, sits at the end of a gated drive and backs an open-space preserve in the Nichols Canyon Colony area. Updated with accordion doors and walls of windows, the 3,107 square feet of living space includes a double-height entry, formal living and dining rooms with a wall fireplace and a kitchen with a breakfast bar.
A custom staircase leads up to the second level containing the home's four bedrooms. In the master suite, curved floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony take in mountain views.
Outdoors, flat grounds of about a half-acre contain an entertainer's deck, a fire pit, a pool and spa, a large expanse of grass and formal landscaping.
DeMicco and his wife, Kacy, purchased the home in 2010 for about $1.32 million, records show. The couple have since decamped to Pacific Palisades, where they bought a Cape Cod-inspired Traditional earlier this year.
Lisa Kirshner of Partners Trust is the listing agent.
DeMicco, 45, co-wrote and co-directed "The Croods" (2013) as well as the upcoming sequel to the DreamWorks Studios film, "The Croods 2," due out in 2017. Among his other film credits are "Quest for Camelot" (1998) and "Space Chimps" (2008).
