Stephen Gaghan, the Oscar writing screenwriter, and his wife, fashion designer Minnie Mortimer, have put their Brentwood home up for sale at $4.995 million.
Set behind gates and stone columns, the shingle-clad house looks like it could be set in Nantucket. The 5,267 square feet of living space features wood-beam ceilings, a painted wood-paneled den/library, a corner sunroom, a media room, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There’s a balcony off the master suite.
A covered brick patio extends the length of the back of the house and connects to the balcony area above by an exterior stairwell.
The city-, mountain- and ocean-view lot of more than an acre contains a guesthouse. The swimming pool and spa are surrounded by brick decking.
Gaghan won an Oscar for the screenplay for “Traffic” (2000). He also has an Emmy for co-writing an episode of “NYPD Blue” (1997). His other screenwriting credits include the 2005 films “Havoc” and “Syriana,” and “Rules of Engagement” (2000).
Mortimer has a line of women’s sportswear.
The property previously sold in 2009 for $4.5 million, public records show.
Richard Stearns of Partners Trust is the listing agent.
