Update: Writer-director-producer Aaron Seltzer has sold his Studio City home for $2,397,500, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
The Cape Cod-inspired house, built in 1951, has five bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms in about 4,200 square feet. It sits off a cul-de-sac on nearly a half-acre lot with a saltwater swimming pool, spa and cabana. There is a sun room with walls of French doors, three fireplaces and private gardens of some of the bedroom suites.
The two-story home, designed for indoor-outdoor living, has a history of residents who write.
Seltzer worked as a writer, director and producer of "Disaster Movie" (2008) and "Meet the Spartans" (2008). He has been a co-writer on the "Scary Movie" film series.
The home was previously owned by the late Arthur Ross, whose writing credits include "The Great Race" (1965) and "Creature From the Black Lagoon" (1954). His son Gary Ross, who wrote and directed "Seabiscuit" (2003) and "Pleasantville" (1998), grew up in the home.
The listing agent was Sharona Alperin of Sotheby's International Realty, Sunset Boulevard. Alperin was the inspiration for the Knack's 1979 hit, "My Sharona." Peter Maurice of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills East office represented the buyer.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
