Fiftysomething goes equestrian
Producer Marshall Herskovitz has purchased an equestrian property in Calabasas for $4.1 million.
The ranch has a Mediterranean-style house with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in 7,000 square feet, a seven-stall barn, two arenas, pastureland and a separate caretaker apartment.
The remodeled home's family room opens to a wraparound veranda overlooking the swimming pool area. An outdoor living area has a hacienda-style fireplace and barbecue. There are mature oak trees and a creek.
The film and television producer, director and writer was the co-creator and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning "thirtysomething" (1987-1991). Herskovitz, 57, produced "Blood Diamond" (2006) and "I Am Sam" (2001), among other films. He is the president of the Producers Guild of America.
Tracy Bunetta and Patty Cali of Coldwell Banker, Malibu, co-listed the property. Cali and Win Collins of Sotheby's International Realty, Santa Barbara, represented Herskovitz.
