A 1938 Spanish-style house in the Hollywood Hills owned by screenwriters Roger Simon and Sheryl Longin is listed at $2,295,000.


Update: This version of the story updates and adds the sourcing reference of the home's former occupants.


The restored house of 3,335 square feet has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, two offices and a large loft. Vibrant tile work embellishes the kitchen and bathrooms. The living room opens to an outdoor living and entertainment space, a lawn and a black-bottom pool with spa. There are canyon and mountain views.

Among the home's former occupants was Marilyn Monroe, according to the Movieland Directory.

Simon, 65, a mystery writer, adapted his novel "The Big Fix" for the 1978 film of the same name starring Richard Dreyfuss. He received an Oscar nomination for co-writing the screenplay of "Enemies: A Love Story" (1989).

Longin, 45, co-wrote the screenplay for the Watergate spoof "Dick" (1999). Simon directed "Prague Duet" (1998), which the pair wrote.

Simon and Longin, who have used the property as their home and a place to write, are selling because they are relocating to Bainbridge Island, Wash. They are working on a play set in Moscow, Hollywood and New York of the 1930s and inspired in part by the house.

The property previously had been listed at $2,625,000 last fall.

The listing agent is Ginger Glass of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills.
