"Weeds" writer and executive producer Jenji Kohan and her husband, Christopher Noxon, have listed their Spanish-style home in Los Feliz at $1,597,000.
The three-bedroom, 2 1/2 -bathroom house, built in 1927, has 2,980 square feet of living space and sits on a bluff overlooking East Hollywood. Among period details are stenciled ceiling beams, an original hand-painted mural in the foyer, a wrought-iron circular staircase and a turret sitting room.
"It's a family house," said Noxon, who liked the home's combination of character and room flow off the staircase. "Everything winds around that central core."
The pair redid the kitchen and back part of the house two years ago with the intent of keeping the authentic feel, he said. "Although the kitchen has upgrades, we tried to maintain the original Spanish vibe."
Springing a surprise on friends and family who gathered for what they thought was an engagement party, the couple were married 13 years ago under the trellis in the front yard and have since raised three children in the house. "It's a very dear and special place," Noxon said.
They are selling because they have moved up to another in the neighborhood.
Kohan, 40, purchased the home in 1996 for $520,000, public records show. She has been a writer and producer on television shows including "Tracy Takes On" (1996-97) in addition to creating "Weeds," now in its fifth season. Noxon, 40, worked as a music consultant on the Showtime comedy from 2005 to 2007 and is an author and freelance journalist.
